America loves a star.
We follow their lives and keep up on the latest drama. Our culture idolizes them and make excuses for them. Some will look to them for their views on current events as guidance and wisdom. This is not a criticism of stars but rather an insight into our Country as we idealize them.
I believe this speaks to an opportunity we have as Christ followers. This is our chance to shine and to be the church by reaching ALL people!
However, there are “star wars” going on daily.
Many look to others to fulfill their lives. For many, this helps block out their pain as they daydream about a better tomorrow. However, this is futile as only God can fulfill a life with peace and hope.
“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the Bright and Morning Star.”Revelation 22:16
Notice Jesus is the Star! In fact, He is the Bright and Morning Star!
He is the answer for ALL people. He is the source of all we need. He is the Hope of the World. Our opportunity is that we will SHINE for Him to make His star seen and known. What an honor we have to represent Him and to make His name glorious and famous!
This is our chance to impact history!
The question is, will we shine for Him?
It’s so easy until we make it hard. We can make His star seen when we love Him and love people. This is the Gospel revealed to ALL! We love Him, which stirs us to love others. This focus crushes religion, melts hard hearts and cures ALL wounds. Jesus wants to shine through us!
He does not move through debate or political agenda. He moves when we love Him and love people. Our country can change even more if we do this.
I encourage you to take your place. Take your life and give it to Him. Give Him the chance to be great through you. Help win the “star wars” and fulfill your role for His glory. This is our moment to impact a generation.
America is looking for a Star; let’s give it to Jesus!
I believe in you and the best is yet to come!
