I’ve talked about this many times before, but I don’t think we get it yet. Perhaps we get it intellectually, but anecdotal observation of the lives of others and myself tells me we haven’t ingested it. We need to live with urgency. We must turn to Jesus now. Our best intentions to surrender our lives are nothing more than that if we never act on them. I certainly am speaking to myself here, as well as all my brothers and sisters in Christ.
As I survey the world around me, I continue to see Christians living a nominal faith that is more concerned with their well-being than it is for the lost, the Church, and the Kingdom of God. Though we claim to surrender all, we still live for ourselves. Our time isn’t given to our King, it’s given to entertainment and pursuing comfort. We eat and drink while tomorrow the lost will die.
