I’ve always found it interesting the lengths people would go in order to gain money. For the life of me, I can never understand how one would sell their souls just to attain #Instagram likes, financial gain or just to continue living a “cushy lifestyle.”
With all of the injustices in the world, there’s only one justice that truly matters — GOD! His opinion of your life, His financial gain of everlasting substance, His commentary & His judgement is all that matters. This is a time where WE as God’s children have to start taking a stand. We should be leading the pack by being different. “For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.”” (Matthew 18:20 NLT)
If you sit idly by and allow injustice, hatred, discrimination, sexism, racism, etc. to happen, then you my friend are a part of the problem. If you sit idly by in fear of speaking up about your faith, about treating people fairly, or about doing what’s right, then you are not following the true teachings of Jesus Christ. He didn’t turn His back on people because it was cool and common. He sat and talked with prostitutes, “whores”, drunks, tax scammers, homeless people, etc. Just because someone had money or the illusion of power didn’t matter to Jesus. There’s only ONE authority that truly matters and that truly has ALL the POWER!
God’s church, the only church that matters, requires a different kind of praiser. It requires a different kind of #Christian. You can’t sit by, not speak up for wrongdoings and think that’s the Godly thing or Christ-like way to be. You can’t sit by and only talk to or teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to those you see fit, clean and worth your time and energy. If that’s your mentality, then your doing Christianity wrong. It’s not about affiliations & denominations, it’s about one (ALL) nation of people, believing & servicing God by acknowledging & worshipping the one true savior– Jesus Christ. We are one family under one blood — His blood.
Enough with playing it safe & going along with the flow of old rules set by man. Abide by God’s rules! Follow Christ’s way! Take up the true teachings of the Bible. Read it for yourself & see what it says. Don’t let no man / woman tell you their interpretation of the Bible. READ IT FOR YOURSELF!!!
It doesn’t say one race or one person is superior than the other. It doesn’t say be selective in what you hate / the speech you freely give as long as it’s cool. “The tongue of the wise makes knowledge appealing, but the mouth of a fool belches out foolishness.” (Proverbs 15:2 NLT) “Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.” (Proverbs 13:3 NLT) Watch what you say to people and how you treat them. “Gentle words are a tree of life; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.” (Proverbs 15:4 NLT) Aside from economics, none of us are different. These floods and natural disasters clearly showed we are all the same. There’s no discrimination when you have nothing and are in the same boat as everyone else! #ThinkAboutIt
It’s time now to #StandOut & be the change WE ALL need to see in this world. Enough with playing it safe for the love of money. There’s too many people being scared of losing money. There’s too many people playing it safe and standing by allowing wrong / injustice to happen. When will we start being right for God and wrong for man? I don’t know about you, but I’d rather be a radical praiser for Jesus than a cool yet quiet person for fans, likes, follows or sponsorships.
So here’s another #challenge for you today. Start doing things differently in your life. If you haven’t, start speaking up when you see injustices happening. This doesn’t just go for social injustice. If you see someone mistreating another person, SPEAK UP! If you see someone lying on someone, SPEAK UP! If you see someone or an animal being abused, SPEAK UP! If you see someone not doing their job professionally or lawfully, SPEAK UP! Only YOU can be the change you wish to see in the world. It all starts at home. It all starts with your heart. Open your heart and close the door of the mind to the negative insecurities and racially dividing factors of life. We are all one human nation under God bleeding the same red blood. Let’s start doing this thing called life and humanity right.
Sincerely with love,
