Looking for a Cause?

In a book called “The Age of Longing” we read that an American girl married a radical revolutionary in Paris. She had lost her faith at an American University—lost all the religious faith she had, and all the things her parents had told her. She was asked why she married him. She said, “He’s the first person I have ever known who believes something strong enough to die for it. Although I don’t believe exactly as he does, I was attracted to this man who had found a cause.” I find that young people today are looking for a cause, and they are not looking for something easy.

Some time ago a university student in Moscow told one of my colleagues, “You Christians say that you are going to win the world, but we’ve done more in fifty years than you’ve done in two thousand years. And do you know why? It is because you are not committed. We are. We will win, you’ll see.”

Prayer for the day

I look at my dedication to You, Jesus, my Lord and Savior, and am ashamed—You gave everything for me. May I always live totally committed in love to You.

    There is no higher calling than to work for the cause of Christ. We are not all called to be preachers, etc. However there is much that can be accomplished with the gifts God has blessed us with, within our own small sphere of influence.

    May God Bless all of you today as He has blessed me. Before I read this devotional I watched Franklin and his daughter Cissy venture through the Holy Lands and it was very moving as I always wanted to go but never had the chance. It was a blessing to see where Jesus actually walked and where He gave His life for ours. That really touched my heart.It is a good tool to use to share with others. Thank-you for sharing that! God Bless you and have a Blessed Day!

    When we understand the cost of our Salvation, we learn to be truly thankful. Salvation is infinitely costly, but absolutely free. Glory to His name! God bless us. Amen.

    What we say we believe in, will usually be revealed by what we do. We need to let the Light of Christ shine through our actions.
