What will it take?

Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.  Mark13:8

(Earthquakes in the last 7 days)

What will it take for us to get up and "Do Something" to reach the world for God. 
Most of us have heard similar statements.  Most of us agree that someone needs to do some reaching out to the world.  We have also been told...... told - Why do I have to be told. And who is telling me. 

As I hear about the "final days" I know that there will be earthquakes and famines.  "Wars and Rumors of Wars" .  But what will if take for me to reach MY WORLD.  My family, friends, kids friends, wife's friends, my friends(do I have any non-Christian friends?), co-workers, etc........
What WOULD I DO if I knew that the Lord was coming next month.  Would it change my attitude.  Maybe not.  Let's be honest with each other.  Be honest to yourself. Would you change?
Were you honest to yourself about the last question?  It is so much easier to NOT change, then to change my life.  But what would it take for me to ___________________ for God?  Fill in the blank.  It may be as simple as listen to my kids more and tell them I love them more often.  It may be to invite the neighbor over for a BBQ on Saturday then to church on Sunday.
Does God have to shake up your world for you to listen.  Does God have to shake MY world for me to listen.  OH YEA!  He's already done that.  Earthquakes are no big deal anymore. "Oh, did you feel that one? It was another earthquake, Where are we going for lunch?"
What would it take?  I don't know.  I don't have time to think about that right now so I'll have to get back to you at another time.  Time......................???


  1. It will take God to change our hearts of stone and give us a heart of flesh beating for Him alone. Our hearts have been calloused of the evil and deception of this world. Even blending families seem to have no hope in having a quiet and harmonious family life together. Let us continue to pray that God in His Sovereign grace will still use His children to redeem a fallen creation.

  2. I pray that you will continue to give us your perspective. It will be great to hear how someone from another country, and your experience, will be able to share some light on how we see family life here in the US. Maybe our hearts will be moved to "Do Something" when we hear how God has moved in you heart, life and country.
