I wonder if I am the only one that feels this way:
Frustrated and angry about the injustices of this world.
Why do so many suffer violence and rape,
Being sold into sexual slavery
While sex and crime are rampant on our TVs?
Why do children starve to death
While we have more than enough food to eat?
Why do workers in the field have to be paid pittance
Whilst we aren’t willing to do that kind of labor
But get paid much more for sitting in an office?
Why should thousands be dying and going to hell
While we are complaining about what music
We should sing or what time the service will end?
Why is that Jesus said ‘If you do it to the least of these’,
The least of these aren’t good enough
Because they are not like us?
How is it that we can say we love our neighbor but
Sit comfortably in our pews gossiping about them?
Why is it that if one preaches fundamental truths from God’s Word,
We reject them because they offend?
Then again, why is it so many preach
Sugar-coated sermons, tickling ears
While the people are spiritually dead?
How can we say we love God but
Don’t care about preserving His creation?
Why can’t we believe that the power of Jesus
Can do miracles, heal, and set prisoners free,
But we can believe the rubbish in our newspapers and magazines?
Where has our faith gone?
When will God’s people stand up and fight?
When will we let God be in control
Instead of us controlling Him?
When will the world see Jesus living in you and me?
I am fed up!
Are you fed up?
Let’s do something about it!
I am going public!
I am determined!
This means war!
Souls need salvation.
The saved need power.
The powered need discipling.
The discipled need armor.
The armored need to battle.
God’s people need to stop hiding,
Stop being like the world, and
Feed on His Word,
Drink of His presence
And live daily in prayer.
Then and only then
Can the injustices of this world be tackled
By believers who love God
And live their faith out loud daily!
