Three Questions - August 11, 2016

Several years ago, three questions rocked my world. 1) Had you been a German Christian during World War II, would you have taken a stand against Hitler? 2) Had you lived in the South during the civil rights conflict, would you have taken a stand against racism? 3) When your grandchildren discover you lived during a day in which billions of people were poor and hungry, how will they judge your response?

I didn’t mind the first two questions. Those days are gone and those choices were not mine. But the third question has kept me awake at night. What if we rocked our world with hope? What if we infiltrated all corners with God’s love and light? What if we followed the example of the Jerusalem church? This tiny sect expanded into a world-changing force. What if we lived our lives by this prayer? Do it again, Jesus. Do it again! That’s the question we need to answer.
