Christianity is not passivity! Neither is it what you make it. Trees must reach a certain stage before producing fruit. Then you can tell a tree by its fruit.
“Let us therefore be zealous and exert ourselves and strive diligently to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves], that no one may fall or perish by the same kind of unbelief and disobedience [into which those in the wilderness fell].” (Heb 4.11 AMP)
If you don't invest time in the Word of God nor apply it to your life, then it’s your choice not to know who you really are. However, don't think the rest of us are sitting on our tuffets waiting for the great by and by. On the contrary, we're constantly having to deny ourselves (including thoughts and imaginations and sometimes desires and family) to minister to your friends in secret, wipe someone’s boo boo's, feed and clothe those in need; intercede in court rooms, doctor's offices and comfort others at the morgue.
By the grace of God and His Spirit, we're on the phone all hours of the night fighting for marriages, talking someone down from the bridge, standing in the gap for worthy causes, preparing sermons and messages and dinner at the same time. We trusting Jesus with help from others to stay sane, keep our families and ministries afloat and not raise hell and harm on the liars around our camps. We are indeed laboring to rest.
"He says, but that’s not a big enough job for my servant just to recover the tribes of Jacob, merely to round up the strays of Israel. I’m setting you up as a light for the nations so that my salvation becomes global!” (Is 49.6 MSG)
We are a people who were once sinners and now saved. These are a few examples of how God empowers us to reach others and oftentimes behind the scenes.
YOU my friend are still alive because of someone's prayers. Believe that! Now receive Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Savior. Join us in being and making disciples. Lead others to Christ.
Christianity is not passivity but a life and a lifestyle - walk the talk.
