I think most would agree our world is dealing with some difficult issues. If I tried to list them all, I would not have enough space or time. So how can we help overcome some of these issues? Glad you asked. I believe we need to stand in the gap. What? Let me explain.
I believe God is calling some men and women to stand in the gap for this hurting world. God has used men and women in the past to help spread His love and comfort to a hurting world.
God used Martin Luther King, Jr. to help bring peace and start a conversation among the races. Dr. King did this through love, listening and non-violence.
God used Mother Teresa to help those that society had casted out. Mother Teresa did through loving, feeding and comforting others.
God used the Reverend Billy Graham to spread His word to millions of lost souls. Dr. Graham did this by preaching God’s word to all people.
But OC, those are some heavy hitters. Those three are part of history. They helped change the world. Yes they did. Maybe you will never be a Dr. King, Mother Teresa or Rev. Graham, but you can still make a difference.
God is looking for some men and women to stand in the gap by mentoring young people that need positive people in their lives.
God is looking for someone to stand in the gap for victims of human trafficking. To help them begin a new life.
God is looking for someone to stand in the gap for their neighborhood. Do you know your neighbors?
Once again, I could fill this page with the many needs our world is facing, but hopefully you see my point. We live in a hurting world, that needs a lot of love, forgiveness, understanding and comfort.
I do not believe a political party is going to fix the problems our world is facing. They might help, but I truly believe it will take people like you and I to make a real difference.
I will leave you with this question. Are you willing to Stand In The Gap for this hurting world? ~OC
