A Christian's Place In A Disrupted World

Fear is the world's most powerful motivator. Fear will paralyze our actions, consume our minds and make us forget who we are. Remember, the devil is a thief and he loves to steal our peace. So it's good to have this verse in our minds and hearts... "For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." 2 Timothy 1:7 Power Love Self-Control It's the power of God that gives us the ability to love and exercise self-control. Jonah was called to minister to lost people caught up in the fears of life apart from their creator God. Jonah didn't want to do it. He ran. God pursued. God gave Jonah a second chance. From the belly of the fish Jonah exclaimed, "Salvation comes from the Lord!" These are the days of disruption. God has ordained them for you and me. These are the times for which God calls us to imitate Jesus Christ. Let's not run away from them but rather let's run toward them. It's the Spirit of God that helps us overcome the spirit of fear. Can we pray this together? "Lord, you have given us your son to prove you love us. You have given us your Spirit to empower us. Give us now your compassionate heart and lead us as we minister to those in need. All for your glory!"
