Upon viewing the video below earlier today, I was filled with peace and an ambition to truly make the world a better place for us all. Not an easy task by any means. But, just think if each of us took to heart the concept that we really are all brothers and sisters in God’s family, regardless of skin color, nationality, or even religion. While someone may be of different religion than me, I still need to love them as my neighbor, as they are my brother or sister; they just have not yet been saved by the words of Truth for Jesus Christ.
Anyways, I know I’m just rambling here, but for some reason hearing that song made me want to blog about it. It made me want to continue to spread a message of peace, brotherhood, and happiness to all. Which essentially is how every true Christian should be living. You see, I’ve always considered myself a Christian, but I was still judging people, putting people down, partying, and living against how God wants us to be. It’s a hard concept to grasp (it took months for me to get the big picture), but once you get it, it really is like you’ve died, and a new person was born. This new person is filled with this unexplainable feeling inside that makes you want to run out to tell everyone you see the Word of God. It really is amazing how great God is. Seeing as God created everything on the Heavens and Earth, including us, it should be a simple concept that we can pay him back by living for Him. Is that such a hard concept to understand?
God is everything. Without him, none of us would be here today. He’s giving us the greatest gift of all- life. So, the way I see it, we should be praising him, and living for him. “Whatever you do, do it for the glory of God.” We need to remember that phrase in everything we do each day.
So, back to my main point. If we all want happiness and world peace and that good stuff, then we should all make the decision to quit living for ourselves and give everything to God. You’ll be amazed at how great it feels. This is the first step in saving this world from the destruction of sin. It’s very hard to see the big picture today with all the new advancements in technology, media, and just life in general. But, if we can look past the materialistic things in life and think about what life is all about, why we’re all here, then we can all start living a better life through Christ. It’s time to let God in the driver’s seat of your life.
