What If

In Why I Believe, Dr. Kennedy talks about the condemnation due us for our sins of omission…for our lack of faith that has doomed a multitude of lost souls to eternal separation from Him. And if you are one of those who have out and out rejected Christ, you have failed in your purpose in life as well. Solomon’s falling away blocked the truth of the One Holy God from being known to many whom otherwise would. The life you and I demonstrate to the world has eternal consequences. Mrs. Schaeffer goes so far as to call it cruelty when a parent fails to teach his children. Oh, I cringe at the thought. So many days when business or fun, forgetfulness or weariness interfered with any time for God. I’ll admit, it could get too regimented and children could certainly resent the rigidity. It's a common and realistic fear for many Christian parents. But when you love the Lord and you love your children (think heavenly perfection), the daily devotion would be a priority of sheer pleasure. Sigh.

Unfortunately, we are careless and selfish, as Christians and as unbelievers. In the faithful life, the neglect is passive apathy and we can only imagine what “might have been” or “what could be” if every Christian plugged in to the Kingdom continually. Super charge! As for the ones who have grown antagonistic toward God and His Kingdom, the damage is evident everywhere. Is there any need to elaborate? John wrote of the end times, “And when that time comes, all doing wrong will do it more and more, the vile will become more vile, good men will be better; those who are holy will continue on in greater holiness.” ~Revelation 22:11

In other words, the spread is going to widen. Knowledge of the Truth in the world will become more jumbled and dark as the remnant shines brighter. Elijah was one such light…talk about super charge! He is next in the remnant series.
