Enemy Occupied Territory

If you could do anything for Christ and success would be guaranteed, what would you do?

Now is the time to act! We are living in the last days of earth’s history, detrimental times for those who do not know Christ. It is time to stand up. It is time that we make Christ first, last, and everything in our lives. We are being called to extreme purity, now, today is the day to throw out all of those things that have been getting in between us and God. Our silence is consent and we can no long afford to be quiet. It is time to let there be indifference and even war, for that is what we are already in.

“Enemy-occupied territory-that is what this world is, Christianity is the story of how the rightful king has landed, you might say landed in disguise, and is calling us to take part in a great campaign of sabotage.”

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, Page 46

We must make the bold choice to serve God or face the shocking alternative, eternal separation from Christ. The latter choice is much easier to make especially if we continue to remain lukewarm. We can’t keep riding the line. It is time to burn some bridges. We can not remind neutral. We must be courageous and follow Christ faithfully.

For such a time as this, God is calling us to serve Him with everything that we are.

I don’t have a plan but God does, which is much better then anything I could ever scheme up. I want to be in a committed relationship with our Creator. I don’t know what to do yet, but I am praying about. We all have a great work to do in these last days. What will you do? Please join me in this great campaign of sabotage.
