It’s time for Five Minute Friday over on Katemotaung’s blog! Set the timer, write for five minutes, and post! Today’s word prompt: world.
Women are entering barber shops for a straight blade shave. It’s the new rage.
“It’s like the goal is to eliminate gender in the world”, remarked my husband.
I have no qualm with a woman wanting no hair on her face. I’d like to have a little less myself. Hormones and the aging process have a tendency to do that.
But it got me to thinking about a larger problem.
Women looking like men, men changing into women.
The Bruce Jenners of the world have become the Caitlyn Jenners and we are all ok with that.
Or are we?
Political correctness is where it’s at these days.
And so, we Christians stuff our opinions down and walk on with a smile pasted on our lips.
We don’t want to rock the boat. After all, Jesus told us to love.
“You are in the world, but you are not of the world.”
How can we be salt and light if we don’t speak out? If we don’t proclaim the gospel and show what the Scriptures say?
I have people in my life that are lost. I want them to find the light of the world. How can I love them and at the same time, expose the evil?
“For God so loved the world.”
People will be angered if I speak out.
“In the world, you shall have tribulations, but I have overcome the world.”
What is my role?
Obedience, with love. That is my role.
How? How do I love and yet stand firm?
“Jesus is the answer, for the world today – without Him there’s no other, Jesus is the way” rings the old song of my youth.
I have a responsibility in this life. How will I go about it? How will I show the world that Jesus is the way?
Lay down and be quiet?
Or proclaim the truth – IN LOVE? I’m so convicted.
We are not of this world. We are in it, but we are not of it.
“Jesus loves the little children of the world – Jesus died for all the children of the world.”
Jesus, let me be the light, the love, the gospel to this fallen world.
And please – don’t let me grow a mustache.
“Ye are the light of the world, a city on a hill cannot be hidden.”
“Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel, and lo, I am with you always – even until the ends of the earth.”
