“I don’t care!”
You hear this phrase often now days. Why? Because no one seems to care about anything but themselves and their agenda.
This kind of attitude goes clear to the top!
Here in Colorado, we have a politician running for a government office. His campaign slogan is: “I don’t care!” He goes on to tell you what he doesn’t care about…. He says, “I don’t care who you love.” “I don’t care how you worship.” “I don’t care where you were born, or what your status is…” ….And a bunch of other, “I don’t care” statements. Am I the only one thinking that the ONLY thing he does seem to care about is getting elected? And why would we want to put him in office if he isn’t going to change anything??? I am also wondering…Just what in the world DOES this guy stand for?
There’s an old saying I heard growing up…. “If you don’t stand for something…you’ll fall for anything!” I’ve come to know that this is truth!
In Ephesians 6:13, it says, “Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to STAND.”
So…what does this mean? The whole armor of God is the helmet of Salvation, the breast plate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the belt of Truth, the Sword of the Spirit, and your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of Peace.
You ARE AT WAR in this world with evil! You are to prepare yourself, and then STAND. Stand for what? Stand for what is right. Stand against evil. Don’t give up! Endure! Wield your Sword, (The Word of God) to fight the enemy. TAKE A STAND!
The sad thing is, we hear professing Christians say the same words. Then there are those that don’t perhaps ‘say’ the words, “I don’t care…”, but their actions definitely bear out the fact that they indeed do not care about much!
I can almost understand why those that don’t KNOW Jesus in a personal way would have that attitude; but for Believers to feel this way is something I can’t seem to comprehend!
We are to be like Jesus.
What if HE would have had that attitude? Where would we be? I would be lost! How about you?
I’m so glad HE came over two thousand years ago to die for me…to make possible a change for me…to show me that HE did, and does care for me!
