Evidence Demands Action… “Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent.” Matthew 11:20
We can ignore His interest in our life, but why? What is the downside to laying down our life for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? He gave His life for us, so we in turn can give away our life in humble service to others. The evidence of His eternal love is reason enough to repent. Christians today–who won’t change–face a more severe judgment.
“The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here” (Luke 11:32). Jesus warned of not responding to the truth of His teachings.
What is the spiritual condition of your city? Is it in chaos because of financial crisis? You can be a catalyst for reform and restoration for Christ. Pray about how you personally, and how your church corporately, can engage your community with compassionate resources. It is during downtimes that the masses are most open to ministry. Adversity opens hearts.
Do the lost see the faith you have found? Or, do your beliefs blend in with everyone else’s, without the enduring evidence of your Master’s miraculous works? Perhaps He is calling you to a greater commitment to serve those in acute relational and emotional hurt. Your light shines brighter the darker it becomes. Serve people where they are, and warn them of a more severe judgment to come. Your life is compelling evidence of Christ’s love.
“To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some” (1 Corinthians 9:22).
Am I a catalyst of change for Christ? Who do I need to warn of a more severe judgment?
