Past is prologue beloved. This is the same reaction we see today from Christians towards the unsaved far too often. Jesus rebuked James and John that day. Final judgment is coming soon but it is not here yet. There is still opportunity to redeem the time. I will give you a real life example. I once had a Christian working for me and she liked to wear Jesus on her sleeve. She played praise music all day. She ended all conversations with Christianese. She was always offering to pray for her co-workers. This irritated one of her peers who tried to make trouble for her. Complaints to management, gossip to co workers, and eventually an official complaint to Human Resources. All the while my friend continued to represent Christ. She gave her no backlash at all. When things fell apart in that person's life a year later guess who she turned to? She was led to Christ as well and remains true in the faith to this day, years later. It would have been all too easy for my friend to want to call down fire from heaven upon this person who was "persecuting" her. She realized however that it is God the woman was rejecting and He was still willing to extend her grace so why should she do any less?

Why should any of us do anything less? Beloved the world is not the enemy. The enemy is who tries to turn us against them. They are exactly where we once were. Lost and stumbling blindly. The things of God are utter foolishness to them. Time is running out for them. They are on the outside of salvation looking in and what do we show them? Do we show them the love of Jesus Christ? Do we show them the Gospel? The only thing that has the power of God to save them? Or do we rally around movies that try to portray us as the victims and them as the villains? Publicly calling for fire to rain down upon those who are no better than us, except for the blood of Jesus Christ? If it is judgment we wish to see, we need to turn our eyes to the state of the church for it is already here. Judgment for the world is yet to come.

God is not dead beloved. It is time we stopped acting like He was.

Reverend Anthony Wade -- April 6, 2016
