As things spin more and more out of control on this earth, know that this is why: what is celebrated in Heaven is not celebrated on earth because the King of Heaven is not celebrated on this earth. Jesus is the ruler of things in heaven and, my friend, He is good!

And Jesus said unto him, “Why call me good? None is good, except one, that is, God.” – Luke 18:19

The One who is good is coming back soon. Know that there will be more and more opposition to His appearance and, because of this, a greater hostility to His goodness and yours.

Despite this growing hostility toward good and celebration of evil, your calling as a Christ follower who understands that God is a good God, is to continue going around doing good! Not only that, you are to do good things in His name!

When the world calls you a hypocrite for calling people to repentance, call them to repentance anyway! When the world calls you a fake for feeding and clothing the poor or visiting the prisoner, do it anyway!

When the world tells you that your efforts to save the lost are futile, continue to extend a hand to the drowning. Testify to the love of Jesus and His saving grace anyway!

When the world hates you because you’re a Christian, know that the world first hated Jesus (John 15:18) for bringing light into the darkness and exposing sin. Continue shining His light anyway!

You’re not called to a life of fear even when things get tough. You are called to be a Holy Ghost rock star who stands in front of the band and shouts into the microphone that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life – no man comes to the Father except through Him. 

You see, the results don’t belong to you, but to Him! Your job is to be obedient.

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. – Isaiah 55:11

Choosing to see yourself as I see you gives others the opportunity to see Me in you. Choosing to see others how I see them gives you the opportunity to represent Me. Become the Jesus people need to see today and receive your blessing!
