And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
I read awhile ago a statistic that said 47 percent of the people who live in the state of Texas attend church regularly. That’s nearly half of an entire state! Somebody said there are more churchgoers in Texas than people! Yet, that statistic saddens me because despite having so many who claim to be Christians in the area in which I live, our faith has very little influence on our population.
What’s happened to the Church? Well for one, the Church has retreated. No longer is the Church fearless, but they’re playing it safe, avoiding confrontation at all costs. They’re scared that someone’s going to be offended. They’re afraid someone is going to put them down. And as a result, churches across our nation have moved into the safety zone.
Now this is a heart issue that lies within each individual Christian. So many buy into the world’s lies that it doesn’t really matter what you believe about God as long as it makes you happy. But as believers, we simply can’t escape the clarion call in our lives to deny ourselves, take up our crosses daily, and follow Christ.
The Christian life isn’t a world of comfort and ease—it’s not a cruise ship. Instead, it’s a battleship—a lifelong fight against the enemy to win souls for the Kingdom of God. So if you’re searching for comfort in life, change your focus to serving the One who is Life!
Instead of seeking comforts in life, give yourself daily in service for the one who is life.
Thank You Jesus!
