The Silent Christian

Lately I have been thinking about all the things in this world that bother me, that I wish would stop, would start, would just get "fixed".... But then I saw this video and it convicted me. I realized that things never change in this world by always keeping quiet, letting other people take care of it, or just pretending you never saw it. 

Jesus, of course, is the best example. He stood up for what was right. He always did it in the best and most loving way but there were moments that Jesus was passionate about and made sure to take a stand, to love God's justice, which is to make right what is wrong in this world. 

You see someone who is hungry.... Feed them... Someone who needs clothes... Clothe them... Someone who needs a friend... Befriend them.

It's that simple.

"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline."  2 Timothy 1:7
