Standing, Sitting and Kneeling…
When are we suppose to stop standing up for what is right? When do we stop doing the right thing and turn it all over to God? Who are God’s Ambassadors here on Earth?
If we stand down and simply state something like “It’s all in God’s hands?” what role do we play? Why would God make us in His image, then send His only begotten Son to teach us about healing, how to heal and why?
Would the alcoholic get saved if there weren’t another human being standing up and helping them to find God? What if everyone said to the alcoholic “It’s in God’s hands and we’ll pray for you?” What if the alcoholic didn’t know who God is, what if they had known God before, turned their back on God – then what?
Are we to sit idly by as our family is ripped to shreds – emotionally, physically and, most importantly, Spiritually?
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. ~Romans 8:12-17
We should collectively, get on our knees pray for Gods strength and power, then stand up and get busy taking back our country from these very evil people that are lying to us. We can start with having the biggest, loudest Thanksgiving celebration of our lives. We should shout Thanksgivings all day long tomorrow and we should love our family like never before. We should call every Representative in our community, our state and our nation and tell them to they can either begin representing our views or we are going to stand up in earnest.
Either the Gospel is divine inspiration, the Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of Him, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
