We are called to take a stand. We can’t stay quiet anymore! This world is crazy-we all know it. We all are disappointed with something that is happening in the world, however it may differ. I pray that we think on what is going on in this world, good or bad, and what we believe about it. How we need to take our stand in this world. Remember this:
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
~Philippians 4:8-9, ESV(English Standard Version)
It will get messy, it will be hard. There is a war going on in this world. This life isn’t meant to be easy. If it was, we would never want to go to heaven.
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of sufferings are being experienced by your brother throughout the world.
~1 Peter 5:8-9, ESV
But we have Jesus, “the founder and perfector of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2b). He will always be here. He has overcome!
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.
John 16:33, ESV
God is good. Always. We need to take a stand in this fallen world. We are the light of the world. We can’t hide it. We need to go out, even if it make us uncomfortable. Being comfortable is bad. We will never change the world if we’re comfortable. We need to love Him with our whole entire being so we cannot help but go out and change the world.
Lets go and be world changers. Let us take a stand for God in this fallen world.
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
~Matthew 28:18-20, ESV

Well written and so true. It’s too easy to “go with the flow” or to just sit quietly and not say or do anything. In our world, where evil seems to be more and more prevalent, it is so important we take a stand for what we believe and take action, to to be active Christians and not passive.
