(1 Peter 5:8-9)…This world is a broken place, and things seem to get worse every day. The big question is where are all the Christians among this deterioration of society. Unfortunately they are both falling into it and hiding from it. Christians today are afraid to stand up against the downfall of the world around them. They think they ought to hide and just hang out in there churches. They think that people should be flocking to them at the church. That is totally wrong, it’s a lie that Satan is feeding. If the world is to be transformed then we need to be going out into the world to change it.
As Christians we are suppose to be living by Christ’s example, and he didn’t sit at the synagogue waiting for the people to come, no he went out into the people. He transformed peoples lives because he met them where they were at. We have this so messed up today. We need to be gathering together only to prepare us to transform the world around us outside of the church. God even commanded us to “go into all the world” (Mark 16:15), I think too many of us miss the mark here.
The biggest thing that we need to remember is that not all of us are called to be evangelists, but we are witnesses for Christ in our lives. We don’t have to be evangelizing in order to change the world, we just need to do what we are called to do as followers of Christ. Satan will do everything in His power to stand against us, but we have God on our side so we can stand against anything.
