Jude 22 “And of some have compassion, making a difference.”
At the individual level, investing in lives with a heart-felt compassion can make a difference. Compassion demonstrates care and concern that breaks down barriers and creates an environment conducive for trust and growth. True compassion motivates action while feigned compassion masks apathy.
At the national level, compassion can make a difference as well. True passion about our country’s condition should motivate action among those who are concerned about a nationwide divergence from Christ.
What does it say about us if we fail to act? Likely, it indicates an apathetic condition among Christians who are not actually concerned about America’s dedicated drift away from the Lord. We may complain about our national direction within the safe walls of the church house, but a lack of action reveals that such complaints are simply feigned for effect but nothing else.
If Christian Americans want to make a difference, we need to put our passion into action. Indeed, we need to demonstrate our passion by our actions. PLEASE PRAY THAT CHRISTIAN AMERICANS WOULD PUT A PASSION FOR THE THINGS OF CHRIST INTO ACTION IN OUR NATION. Otherwise, it is probable that our passion is nothing more than pretense.
