And of some have compassion, making a difference… (Jude 22 KJV)
I’m not going to ask you how you can make difference in this world? But how you can make difference in your world for Jesus’ name? There are many ways for we can make major change the world system to make better places. We can recycle soda cans and any disposable things for us to use for different things.
Sadly, there are many churches are making difference for the world, not the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s like Christians are not hunger and thirst for the truth of God. Apostle Paul declared in I Timothy 4:1-3, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.” We began to see that North Korea is getting ready to make a war against South Korea and United States. If this would hit at either of country, we would see the first phase of the World War III. We also began to see that our Christian nation is becoming weaker and turn it to the day of Sodom and Gomorrah.
We have two choices to make difference in this world—hunger for the Word of God or hunger for the world system. Our world economic system is not getting better until the Antichrist would come with his system, which it would lead us to eternal death in Hell. However, Jesus Christ died for our sins and resurrected on the third day to establish His relationship with us. One day, He will return to the earth to establish His government with us. In the meantime, we have to do His great commission by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others and making His disciples.
Jesus said in Matthew 28:19-20, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. (Isaiah 41:10, 13 KJV)
When the last time that you felt that you cannot do this or that because you were scared to overcome your fear? We all face fear sometime in our lives. If you say that you don't fear to anything, you either try to hide your fear to your people or you try to be braved. Either way, you cannot escape your weakest until you face it.
Sure, we would try to be braved as those who are in WWF Wrestling teams. But, do you know that people in WWF Wrestling have fear in each of their hearts? They cannot escape the fear of their lives when they face their opponents. If their opponents are getting tough to fight with, they would try to escape from their enemies.
We, too, have our wrestling opponents. His name is Satan. He tries everything to make us miserable in our lives. He even tries to let us to receive the power of fear. Unfortunately, he cannot defeat us easily if we have help from the Lord. God told His prophet not to fear, because He is the source of help. Paul says in Philippians 4:19, "...God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
We don't have to fear to any new obstacles if we know that God is Johovah-jireh (the LORD will provide) (Genesis 22:14 KJV). Fear not because God promises to us that He will be with us always. Fear not, because we have the armor of God to defeat the world of darkness (see Ephesians 6:10-20). And fear not, because we have God who knows every details of our weaknesses and can give us more strengths to overcome any obstacle we would face.
That is why our God is the greater Counselor when we'd try to find help to meet our needs or any events that we are doing.
I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. (I Corinthians 9:26-27 KJV)
Do you have goal in your life that you'd want to grab on? We all do have certain goals that we would like to have in our lifetimes, but it's a challenge. Apostle Paul reminds us that reaching for the goal is not easiest thing to do. We do all have to work toward to our goal. Even Jesus reached for His goal, saving His people from their sins by dying on the Cross and rose again on the third day.
Everyday, we have a race--a race that the world would like to challenge our spiritual authority on. It could be to do with our jobs, lifestyles, finances, marriage, car, or with our loved ones. Whatever is, Satan would like to challenge us on certain object or person. Although we may have difficult to find that obstacle first, with God's help, we can face the challenge that our enemy sets before us.
Do you have goal to wish to grab on? Why not just trusting Jesus Christ to conquer your obstacle and grab on that victor that He prepares for you to have it.
