July is here and almost done.... Crazy! But that means we have had a lot of awesome ministry that has happened and that is yet to come! God is moving, People are being saved and coming to know the reality of Christ! Yesterday, Micah, Joanna, and I went to meet the latest team to join us in the work that is going on here in South Africa. They are from Tulsa Oklahoma. While we were in the Airport, we went to a little shop.
It was in this shop, that I discovered something that made me absolutely sick to my stomach. There is a company that is making key chain sized voodoo dolls and selling them. There are at least 50 different types of dolls that are supposed to protect/help you with different things. They are clearly marketed to children. I was appalled! Not only are they taking something that is purely demonic, and making it look like a toy, they are spreading this to kids everywhere!!
What is happening to our world? The enemy is on the move, and at times it seems that as Christ followers, we are completely unaware. I'm seeing this more and more by sitting and talking to the people in the squatter camps. We have a lot of work to do, and we need to start NOW NOW!! So today I'm not going to give you a nugget of hope, but a challenge.... What are you doing to spread the word of God? Are you living for Christ, or for yourself? Are you sacreficing your comforts to reach out and tell people about the hope and life that can be offered because of Christ?
We all have excuses, and in fact I am the master of excuses! But Jesus told us to " go into the ALL the world and make disciples" We are to be telling people in our neighborhoods, workplaces, and homes about Jesus. This was the great commission. Which we as Christians have mistaken for the great suggestion.... So what are your excuses? Why aren't you telling people about Christ, living out the life of freedom you've been given through Christ??
