Last weekend, Nathan and I went to the Holocaust Museum in D.C. for my birthday. While I have heard the above quote numerous times, the way life is going, this resonates with me even more.
From Genesis to Revelation God calls His people to remember. They are to remember who He is and what He has done. God calls His people to remember who they are in Christ.
God’s people today, especially in the West are being destroyed and swept away by a lack of knowledge, a lack of discernment and a lack of courage.
Now more than ever do believers in Christ need discernment and courage to speak and stand for Christ. Now more than ever Christians need boldness and courage to do what they know is right. Now more than ever do Christians need to come together, rather than divide over secondary and tertiary issues.
It is heavy on my heart how often the persecuted church is missing in our prayers. It also pains me how often we do not pray for unsaved people groups. It pains me that antisemitism is on the rise.
I want to speak and stand for Christ more than I want to be aligned with a political party. Y’all do not need me to tell you that EVERYTHING has become political, regardless of where one lives. We need to speak for Christ even if it is costly.
I pray that we will remember our Triune God. I pray that we will speak and stand for Him, so that when we see the Lord Jesus Christ face-to-face, we will hear, “well done, good and faithful servant.”
Lord God, help us to remember You! Lord, stir our hearts to stand for You, to speak for You, to be Your Hands and Feet in a dark and changing world. Lord God, give us minds to discern error, and courage to speak truth. Help us to be remember You by reading and meditating on Your Word. Help us to be agents of reconciliation, rather than agents of discord. Lord, I ask that You help us to separate from this world system; prepare us to suffer for You. Help us to remember that our affliction will be momentary in light of eternity with You. Lord God, thank You for this reader. Cause this reader to reflect on You today. In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen.
