Fourteen Days – Sunday Thought For The Day
A question to my dear brothers and sisters in Christ. I am speaking to those who can truthfully say they have accepted Christ as their Savior. Today is Sunday, January 14, 2024. We are officially 14 days into the new year. My question is: Have we as Christian individuals spent more time sharing the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ or talking to people about sports and television programming? In these 14 days is the number of people we’ve told about certain of our every day activities greater than the number of people we’ve invited to church? Is that number exceedingly greater? In fact, have we invited anyone to attend church with us at all?
In these 14 days have we talked with friends more about the political and social environment than we have talked with them about what we have read that day or even that week in the Word of God? In these 14 days have we shared with our friends, family or even shared with one or more of our church family something God has shown us and/or done for us in the infancy of this new year? Speaking of which, as professing believers do we even attend church? Do we attest to being members of a church, but seldom, if ever attend with any regularity? As Christians, have we spent more time in these 14 days discussing politics and talking about how bad things are going to be “if we don’t do something” than we have reminding people that God’s word is immutable and that as Christians we have victory in Jesus? In these 14 days have we lamented more about the spiraling downward of America than we have discussed or spent time thinking about how to reach the lost for Christ?
In these 14 days what have we done to make a difference for Christ?
There’s no question that the America and the world is on a collision course with the finality of biblical prophesy, but that should encourage us, not frighten us; because everything that is happening is proof that the Word of God is truth.
My commitment for this year is to do more for the high-calling of Jesus Christ than I did last year. My friends, what is your commitment this year as a Christian? If we want to make a true, definable, visible, difference in America in the time we have remaining, that will last for all of eternity – let us commit to be about the true work of Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:58 (KJV)
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Romans 1:16 (KJV)
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
