Why are Christians so passive?
The current-day Christian model is training children, youth, and adults to be skilled at sitting on the sidelines of an enormous war with a bag of potato chips, a good-sized soda, and a king-size bag of candy. And attending the army chaplain’s service once a week.
Christians have attained master’s degrees in being kind and going to a building once a week, but where has the soldier gone?
Soldiers have been hypnotized by TED Talks, artistic performances, and big, long words spoken from behind something we call a pulpit. None of it is war.
In fact, a war is going on inevitably, recognize it or not. If one is not pushing on the frontlines for God, they are being plowed over by the enemy, or worse yet, they are on the other side themselves.
There’s so such thing as gray. It’s white vs. black. We know full well what the Lord thinks of the lukewarm.
But what does my saying this do? Am I saying this to smite the lukewarm? Nope.
I’m saying this in hopes that the lukewarm will wake up from their slumber, and get freedom themselves, so they can become the warrior God has ordained them to be from before the foundation of the earth.
I’m not saying you have to be militant or cannot be kind. No, we battle not against flesh and blood. (Ephesians 6:12) Kindness and such comes out of your sheer love for Jesus as a servant and a soldier on His army.
There is only one Person who can resolve the issue and only one Book that fully explains it and its remedy.
When you seek, pursue, and love God with every fiber of your being, He will see to it that you are thrust into battle. He will reveal things to you that you had not thought possible.
You will be overwhelmed with Holy Spirit and His love for you. You will be divinely inspired to preach and proclaim His holy name.
When you purely pursue him in worship and soak in His goodness (and not performance), He will work on you in the deepest depths of your spirit.
He’ll take you from the sidelines and to the frontlines; from the lukewarm to the red-hot.
God’s got you, and He loves you immensely. And we love you, too! Have a great day 🙂
