What Role Should Christians Play in Today’s World?
A minister wrote in to our local paper today something really convicting. He talked about all the changes going on in the world right now with the new administration in America and also the economic crisis.
He said this is a perfect time for Christians to show what it means to be a child of God.
We have different values than the world and should not be reacting to what’s going on the same way non-Christians do. Christians are more focused on eternity than the here and now.
He said if the Christian community (and each of us individually) really focused on reconciling the lost and dying world to a transforming understanding of an all powerful and loving God it would change the world.
It needs to start with me (and you). Our personal prayer should be that our lives will witness to the world the truth of God’s Word. That we have new attitudes toward individuals, communities, nations and the world in general as we grow in our relationship to Christ.
As we change, the world will be changed one heart at a time through our personal witness. It may be one of the changed hearts that we influence that will fix the problems facing us.
