If you see something, will you say something? If you see something, will you do something? If you hear something, will you listen? If you hear something, will you respond?
Would you stand by and do nothing?
Have you ever heard the quote from Edmond Burke, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
So what if you do something but they won’t listen? Will you still keep speaking?
So what if you do something but they won’t change? Will you stand firm?
When the mourning starts do you want to be able to say you did something, you tried?
Would you really want people to be able to say they didn’t know or didn’t realize?
So will you do something before it is too late? Will you sit on the sideline and do nothing?
There is a war going on right now! It’s a war for the souls of everyone on earth!
Every soul that rejects Jesus will spend eternity apart from God! Every soul that received Jesus will spend eternity in heaven!
While we are alive there is still hope and still a chance! Once you die, you no longer have the change or the choice to change your mind!
So we need to speak now! We need to share now! We need to do something now before it is too late!
Don’t stand by and do nothing! Stand up and invest in the one thing that lasts beyond the stuff – the soul of the people around you!
Turn to God! Call out to Him! Humble yourself to Him! Ask Him for forgiveness! Ask Jesus into your heart! He will hear from heaven, forgive your sins, and heal your land!
Before it is too late, don’t be so proud that you miss out the truth! Don’t be so proud that you get tripped up! Don’t be so proud that you fall!
Is today your day?
Would you stand by and do nothing? How do you want to be remembered? How do you want to be received? How many lives will be changed because of Jesus in you being shared with them?
Today’s reading starts in the book of Lamentation, continues into Obadiah, and then closes in Philippians.
