Apathy is so nice and cozy. You don’t have to worry about absolutely nothing!
It’s like enjoying your home, all of it’s comforts and niceties, and paying no attention to the fire in your attic and the flood rising in your basement.
Oh, never mind those pesky neighbors, pounding on your doors and windows, they’re just disturbing your tranquil occupation with Reality TV.
“Gees,” you think to yourself: “those neighbors need to get a life!”
“A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest—then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber.” Proverbs 6:10-11
Wake up people, we’re losing the cultural war – the battle for the very soul of our Nation, because the Church is asleep in the Light and doesn’t bother leaving it’s cozy pews to put Truth into practice.
Are we more mesmerized by the light trickling in through the pretty stained glass windows, than the Light of the Glorious Gospel beaming outward, like lightening from the East to the West?
If all the wars and rumor of wars are not troubling, and all the reports of world wide terrorisim aren’t unsettling; if Mother Nature’s fury is yesterday’s news and riots churning up bloody revolution is simply an inconvenience, then you’re not paying attention. The world is in turmoil and Churches split over scandal after scandal. Some priests molest and many pastors build their empires and dynastic ministries.
500 years ago, Martin Luther posted his Ninety Five Thesis on the Church doors to wake up the clergy, putting them on notice. He shocked the religious establishment and freed ideological and theological slaves from the falseness of fake religion and heresy into the Light of God’s Word.
Where are the Luthers of our time? Where are the Christlike Saints of unstoppable faith and undetoured obedience? Where are the brave souls awakened from apathy?
God is all about keeping his promises and there will, one day, be a day of reckoning – God does indeed hear the persistent prayers of desperate widows; However, Christ has said, “…when the Son of Man returns, will he find faith on earth?” Luke 18:8.
Church, your attics are on fire and in your basements the flood waters are rising! Stop allowing FEMA and the government the usurpation of your calling and the robbery of your crowns!
You’ve exchanged your glory for a 501-C3 tax break! Yet, Christ has said:
“Give back to Caesar the things of Caesar, and to God the things of God.”
You’ve given to Caesar too much, and to God, too little.
Wake up, Oh Bride of Christ, your finest hour is upon you and the fields of every Nation are white, ready for harvest.
If the signs of the times are any indication of the eminent return of Jesus Christ, then wake up from your apathy and dust off your faith, you are desperately needed!
