After our trip to Cambodia last august, where we witnessed an extraordinary group of Christians who live their entire life for Christ. He is truly the center of their existence. They don’t have him i a compartment or say this is my “God Life” and “this is the rest of my life.” It really challenged us as Christians to ask ourselves are we truly committed to the cause of Jesus Christ. To His love, His grace, and to His Gospel?
A young Friend of mine, made this statement to me after we returned home. He said, “I have realized that American Christians are more American than Christian.” What a profound thought. Have we allowed our culture as Americans to become more important to us than our Christianity, have we become the epitome of the Christ words when he said the Gospel could be choked out of our lives as a result of the deceitfulness of riches and the cares of this life? I Know that some have, many for that matter, but I believe that God is raising up a new breed of believer, who really cares more for the cause of Christ than any other thing in their lives, and its this Cause that informs and influences every other area of life. Jesus, let us be as Christians what you intended, that is my prayer.
