Reaching people and telling them about Jesus should be the goal of every true believer.
Righteousness and truth:
Jesus saved us and changed our lives from a certain eternal death to an eternal life. He gave us this life to make a difference, to stand for righteousness and truth. Without these America will never get any better, only worse. We are called to be a light in a dark world. When we do this, the world won’t like it. They will attack, which they do. They will say awful things about us, which they do. But it doesn’t change who we are or how we choose to live our lives. What good is it to be the light if we are always hiding or afraid to speak up? Faith is active — it always does something.
We are hearing more and more from the world that it’s “for the common good.” Masks, vaccines, stay at home, don’t go anywhere, tell on your neighbor (which I believe is deplorable), don’t go to church “for the common good.” What we need to be careful of is that “the common good” is representing socialism. I believe the spirit of the Antichrist is working in our country and world right now (“for the common good”). Give up your freedom “for the common good”!
Spirit of the Antichrist:
1 John 4:3 NLT — But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here.So many talk about Jesus, but are they telling you the truth about Him? That spirit is working in our country with the mantra “for the common good.”
We need to be careful and keep looking to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
Just a thought,
