Jesus, is He your Genie in a bottle or your life? Are you a warrior or a side-liner?

I’ve been watching the events in Egypt unfolding recently, and it makes me wonder why Christians are not as dedicated to their faith as the Muslims are. I am glued to the TV watching this group of unarmed people who are willing to take on an army because they feel that the leaders are threatening their faith. They are so intense about their God, that their are laying down their lives in his defense. Wow, if the Christians of this world would just show a sliver of that dedication, then we wouldn’t be losing the battle for Jesus.

How much do you love Jesus? Do you love Him just enough to expect Him to be your Genie in a bottle, or do you love Him enough to lay down your life for Him?To dedicate your time to Him and to the cause of Christianity.  I don’t think wes ask ourselves these questions often enough. We see people and governments all around us that are threatening our religious freedoms and beliefs, yet all we do is complain about about the situation rather than doing something about it.

What would happen is we were to become a political force to be reckoned with. To mobilize a Christian Army that showed we would not allow abortions.To organize enough to boycott companies that support gay rights. To show the world that we are willing to be the Christian David’s against the worldly Goliath’s. People like to rattle their sabers and say YES, but when it comes time for the march they sit back down. I know that what I am about to say will be controversial, but I don’t care. The heck with the separation of Church and state, it’s time we become a true Christian nation governed by the laws of the Bible not man.

There it is, I said it. Let the nations of the earth arise and become the modern day Israels. Let the Lord punish us when we stray from His Word. Even though the people of Egypt are following the wrong faith, I do respect them for being so dedicated to their beliefs. If we as Christians were to become that dedicated, then there would be no Muslim, Buddhist, LDS, Jehovah Witness, we would all be under the banner of the one true God, Jesus Christ. There would not have to be any more protests, only peace. But that time will never come until we get off of our seats and start fighting. To lay down our lives if needed.

Now ask yourselves, are you motivated by these words, or convicted. If you’re motivated, then go out and do something. Organize, overcome, and oppose what doesn’t align itself with the Bible. If you’re convicted, then pray on it and ask yourself to become a warrior for Jesus not a side-liner.

 

Colossians 3And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
