What is... The cause of so much wow and woe?
The cause of so much praise and pain?
The cause of so much celebration and concern?
The cause of so much hope and hate?
The cause of so much joy and judgement?
The cause of so much mercy and mockery?
The cause of so much delight and despair?
The cause of so much faith and fury?
The cause of so much trust and tribulation?
The cause of so much grace and grief?
The cause of so much love and lawlessness?
The cause of so much affection and animosity?
The cause of so much rejoicing and rejection?
The cause of so much expectation and enmity?
The cause of so much understanding and ugliness?
What is... The greatest mission ever given?
The greatest message ever told?
The greatest ministry today?
What is... “This gospel of the kingdom that will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)
It is... King Jesus, the cause and effect and glory of it all.
What side of the cause are you on?
The one full of grace, faith, trust, love, hope, joy, delight, wow, mercy, understanding, rejoicing, expectation, affection and celebration in the exclusivity and cause of Jesus and His message, mission and ministry?
The one that fits in better and related more with those full of rejection, enmity, hate, animosity, ugliness, grief, judgment, fury, lawlessness, tribulation, despair, woe, pain, concern and mockery against those who’ve given their all to the exclusivity and cause of Jesus and His message, mission and ministry?
I encourage you to take a minute and read Matthew 24:1-14 and just ask yourself where do you fit in this global scene and gospel service. But don’t take your word as the final word. You nor I will have the last word on this. There’s good reason He says, “Take heed that no one, including ourselves, deceives us.” So, take that next step and ask God to show you, along with those who are most important to you, those that you do life with, where you and they are in the cause.
Blessings... and may He speak to you!
