The Answer Is Jesus
This has got to be one of the most inspirational videos I've ever seen! Everyday we hear so many corrupt lies that our culture tries to feed us. They have come close to convincing us that God is not enough, and that instead we must chase after things like beauty, boys, sex, drugs, or maybe even the latest new Apple product. America has come to the point where we worship all those things. We are completely obsessed with materialism. Our generation is screaming for an answer, for something worth living for. And the answer is JESUS! Christians today our failing to proclaim the gospel. We are in a desperate need of revival!
God has called ALL of us to be missionaries, to take his name to the nations, whether that is here in the U.S. or maybe even some other country. Hudson Taylor once said, "The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed."
The Lord COMMANDS us to share the gospel, but we've got to be 100% sold out to Him. Once you've surrendered your life to God, living an ordinary life isn't an option. Get out of your comfort zone! What are you truly willing to sacrifice to further the Kingdom Of God?
But whatever was to my profit, I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ.
