Spread the Word. The Gospel, that is.
There was one particular song I enjoyed that became popular in the 1990s that was by the band Whiteheart.. It was called Say the Word. I just could not get enough of it. The lyrics spoke directly to my heart. They were simple and true. Basically, the song explains that you don’t have to do much, just speak the words of God (the Scriptures from the Bible) and amazing things can happen. After all, it is God’s Word. I think it can pretty much stand on it’s own.
In considering the messages flying about in regards to the situation America is in today, I’d say that what this country could use more than any Stimulus Package or Debt Recovery Plan is a good dose of the Good News of the Gospel.
Just think, if instead of a mandate connected to tax payer dollars, Congress had signed into law a bill that stated we had to be honest? Had to share? Had to think of others first? Had to give first? Had to meet each others needs? Had to pay our bills or had to pay on time and had to pay in cash? Had to honor God, and had to live Godly lives? Well, this world would heal up pretty quickly if you ask me.
The answer isn’t solving the financial crises we’re in right now. It’s about peace. Peace of mind. Peace of life. Peace of heart. Something that money just can’t solve or buy. Without inner peace, all of the resources in the world, or the stability they can bring, simply isn’t enough.
Sure, we only get one shot at this life. And there’s nothing wrong with wanting to make the best of it. But may we not forget, there’s a whole lot of living that comes in the hereafter. It’s called eternity. And that’s a really, really, really long time. With no end!
So, instead of arguing about spreading the wealth, why not consider the clever ways to personally spread the Gospel. After all we’ve been through, it really couldn’t hurt.
Just my thoughts,
