This video is so strong, and is totally in line with America today. We are told to do what we want and get as rich as possible, but what Christ says in the Bible is totally opposite.
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal, but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal." Matt. 6:19-20.
We need to stop listening to the world though and start listening to Christ. We think nothing is wrong with us, but everyone else is in the wrong. That is in our blood, we are defensive. We look at the splinter in our brother's eye without noticing the log in our own.
Do something for me and I want you to use this to evaluate the American Church. When you think of foreign, persecuted, house churches. Do you picture yourself looking down and pitying those churches, or those churches looking down on us? I pictured churches here looking down on those churches, but it really should be flipped.Those churches are the ones, that are truly indulging in the love and power of Christ, but the church here in America is blinded by the log in its own eye. Lets start changing that one person at a time.
My family and I are missionaries of Jesus Christ in the country of Ghana. Our heart is for the orphans and unreached people of this country. Living in a third world country has given me a whole new perspective on America, especially the American church, and I hope that through this, the Lord uses me to touch and change lives.
