65% of adult Americans claim the name of Jesus Christ. It’s time to rise up individually and then corporately. There are millions of churches in this country, but our light is so dim that darkness overtakes us. It is your personal responsibility to not only make sure you are a candle with a wick but that your wick is lit and burning. I don’t understand the great divide in this country. Revelations 5:9 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation ESV. God did not create the white church, black church, Hispanic church, or Asian church; He made one church. Repent and rise up! If you believe abortion is a choice, gender identity is not a choice, sexual immorality is a besetting sin, you have mixed Baal worship into your Christianity, and you should repent and rise up! If you are more worried about what people are wearing and what Bible they read, you should read Matthew 23:27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness ESV or Romans 2:16 on that day when, according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus.ESV. Psalms 7:8 The LORD judges the peoples; judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and according to the integrity that is in me. Keep your eyes on Him, and rise up! If you worship the music, the building, or the people in it, join a country club or repent and rise up. Your light in this world is your hope, love, joy, peace, and long-suffering; if all you are offering is the opportunity to join a bunch of people struggling, fighting, devaluing, and judging each other, they already have that. Jesus came with the greatest gift of love to seek and save those who are lost. His promise of life more abundantly comes through the privilege of knowing Him. On that day, your heart will be revealed, and your works will be judged according to His Word. If you think you are saved, make sure. If you feel you are doing it right, make sure. If your feelings are hurt, or I stepped on your toes, skip the comment, pray for me, and then RISE UP!
