Opening Thoughts: Well it’s Sunday and there will many people who believe on the name of the Lord in church buildings today. They will worship, praise and likely talk a bit after church, then go out for lunch or home for a feast. This is a quick challenge to all people who profess to follow Christ to not only worship in the building but also carry your worship to Facebook, Twitter, Blogs and the streets… 180 Movie is a timely gift from God that is throwing a HUGE stick in the spokes of the pro-choice movement.
If we say we follow Jesus it is not only our mandate to share the GOSPEL, but also to stop the shedding of innocent blood. After seeing that almost 100,000 people have shared the 180 YouTube movie on Facebook in the past 5 days, resulting in over 400,000 YouTube views and thousands of lives being impacted to the point of minds being radically changed on the issue of abortion… We can clearly see that social media has been given to us as an amazing tool in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Please read the passage below and be impacted as I was to make a difference today.
(Amos 5:21-24 ESV) “I hate, I despise your feasts, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them; and the peace offerings of your fattened animals, I will not look upon them. Take away from me the NOISE of your SONGS; to the melody of your harps I will not listen. But let JUSTICE roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
Closing thoughts: Bottom line is that if our worship does not affect the way we live then it’s just noise. Let’s turn our worship into music that God delights in. He is not saying that our worship is useless, but simply that worship which does not lead to action is not something He enjoys in the least. We need to become true ambassadors of the Gospel… Words & Action. So please continue to help spread the message of 180Movie.com to the world.. Together we can influence a complete generation of people and help turn hearts back to God through repentance!
