A Time to Act
Imagine what America might look like right now if more pastors followed in the footsteps of pastors like Jonas Clark of the minute men militia, William Emerson, grandfather of Ralph Waldo Emerson and John Peter Muhlenberg, of the 8th Virginia brigade in the Continental Army of the Revolutionary War. Imagine if followers of Jesus paid more attention to what was happening in our local, state and federal governments, called out the evil within it, and voted.
Yes, God is sovereign, but he does many things through his people. Let Him use you for good and for His glory.
“Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a pastor in Germany who was part of the German resistance that opposed Nazi Germany. Bonhoeffer said this, “silence in the face of evil is itself evil and God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
Listen until the end for another devastating quote from Christians that were in Germany during the Holocaust.
God, forgive me for ever being complacent.
