With all the attention-grabbers, sound bites, debates, commercials, tweets, Facebook posts, and noise, something tells me there is a presidential election on the horizon! 🙂 Every candidate has a passionate theme and message that trumps all timidity within them (no pun intended or endorsement). Every candidate meets thousands of people every day on the political trail. They answer multiplied questions from the media as well as the general public. They are faced with fierce opposition in debates and by their detractors. No matter, they press on because they have a message that they believe will change America.
This morning, I read a quote from David Platt that stirred my heart, “Privatized faith in a resurrected King is practically inconceivable.” We have a message, the Gospel, that will change the world (Romans 1:16-17; Ephesians 2:1-10; 1 Thessalonians 1:5-10). Therefore, we must not be a private Christian when it comes to sharing our faith in our resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. If a man running for the highest office in America can be bold and articulate in his belief, we can, too! We are not running for office because we are already elected in Christ (Ephesians 1:3-6), but we are running for the Bema (2 Corinthians 5:9-11)! Share the message of eternal change today! That message, the Gospel, changed you, right?
