Amidst all of the difficulties and trials of life,
Amidst the pain and the anguish,
Amidst the fear of loss and the actual experience of loss,
Amidst sickness and death,
Amidst disagreements and disappointments,
Amidst it all, and through it all, we have opportunities to testify.

Most people pay attention to Jesus’ words in Luke 21:5-19 as telling us about what’s going to happen at “the end” of the world when the universe is about to change. And, truly, as Jesus describes things here, the world is quite a mess. Nothing much has changed, has it? Jesus spoke of a mess then, and we sure have messes today.

The mess even gets personal:

"[T]hey will arrest you and persecute you; they will hand you over to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors because of my name. This will give you an opportunity to testify." (Luke 21:14-13)

This will give us an opportunity to testify. Did you hear that? This is red-letter stuff: today, and every day, we have an opportunity to testify about our faith in God and the love we have received in Jesus Christ our Lord. This is not an option; it’s a directive and a calling direct from Jesus. And, for our testimony to be true, we must use more than words: we must share the love of God with all in deeds as well as in words. See MoreSee Less
