When bad things happen in our world it’s easy for me to cry out, “Jesus, come soon!” I call this behavior “The Christian Cop-Out”, and I do it all the time.
In all actuality, I should be on my knees praying harder. I should be working harder. I should be hustling to win as many people over to God’s side as I can.
The world doesn’t need a cop-out. They need Jesus. They need Christians that really care. They need Christians that put other people’s needs, including spiritual needs, as number one on their list of things to take care of for the day.
Just because we are ready to walk through those gates of pearl doesn’t mean everyone else is. Heaven is going to be, for lack of a better word, amazing. However, there’s still more work to be done and more souls to save.
“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” – John 15:16
