Let’s be honest. for many of us in the USA, as Christians (or just as humans, really), boredom is one of our biggest issues. Boredom is a surface level issue for larger problems, deeply rooted in our lives. We are bored with church. Bored with all the causes fighting for our attention and our cash. Tired of the normality of routine.
I suggest what we really crave is the Supernatural. Our obsession with superheros, the miraculous, our tendency to be addicted to elements that enhance our ‘normal’ experience….we want something more.
That’s because we were created for more!
For us at CVJC , it’s nothing short of a miracle when someone is set free from the modern day forms of slavery called labor and sex trafficking. When the addict says YES to a new life. When the “average Christian” sacrifices in serious ways to financially support our group, or gives hours of his time to further the mission.
“When you look around at our Christian communities today, what do you see in our handling of money and possessions that can only be explained by the supernatural work of God?” (Larry Alcorn) Money and possessions enslave us! When we release them to God’s purposes, we actually further the potential for supernatural working of the Holy Spirit. When we let go of our power, it releases God’s power.
We have choices to make, each day. Will we spend money on items that we know are probably as cheap as they are because of those exploited in majority world countries? Will we open our eyes to what happens to our brothers and sisters on a global level? Will we take time to truly see someone – and act on their behalf – in our own city?
