Called To Our Cross!

679317

During World War II, some posters displayed a stern Uncle Sam pointing and saying, “Your country needs you!” Many people responded to that challenge, going to work or to fight for the country even though they knew it would mean personal sacrifice and change of priorities. They responded because they believed in the cause they were fighting for.

The idealism and self-sacrificing commitment of that wartime generation are harder to find in our society today. But as Christians, we are challenged to rediscover that commitment. Jesus is saying to His people today the same sort of thing Uncle Sam said in those posters. Jesus is saying to us, “Your church—my church—needs you!”

In 1961, U.S. President John F. Kennedy spoke some challenging words at his inauguration: “Ask not what your country can do for you,” he said, “ask what you can do for your country.” The motto of our culture is almost a reversal of John Kennedy’s words: “Ask not what you can do for your country or neighbor or family or friend; ask what they can do for you!”

Sadly, that mindset has infected Christians and many congregations today. Too many Christians approach church with the question: “What’s in it for me?” This is not the will of our Great God! He has called us to take up our cross and follow Him! St Francis of Assisi said it well when he prayed, “O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love;  For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; it is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.”

The life of Christianity, the life of the church, is the quest to become a better servant. I am deeply grateful and appreciative of so many of you who commit your time, talents and treasure to the work of the church. If you have been sitting on the sidelines, I urge you to rise up as we continue to do the work of Jesus Christ together, here, and around the world!
