Two days ago the rapture was supposed to happen....at least that's what some suggested. It's so funny that these predictions never happen and yet men continue to set dates ignoring what scripture says about it.
I don't want to talk about the rapture as much as discuss this idea imbedded in the Christian mindset of escape...escape from the world. But the world is what we were sent to redeem! Why are we so anxious to get out of the very place God put us to serve him?
Are we trying to escape the pain? the problems? Whatever the reason, and I'm sure there are many, have we forgotten we were put here to serve God and tell the world what Christ has done for them? Have we forgotten that job isn't done yet? Why do we want to avoid the very thing God asked us to do?
I'm not so sure God is pleased with this mindset. We are called to love, share Christ, help the widow, visit the prisoner and yes, suffer for Christ. Let's not look for an easy escape until we have done our job.
