Things that Make You Go Hmm..?
“We have the freedom to hold a belief. Many do not. We have the right to change our belief. Many do not – it is chosen for them. We have the right to express our religion or belief. Many do not.
As we’ve heard – Christians can only express their belief in hiding. We are blessed. We have no reason to hide. In addition to our being liberated in heart, mind and soul, through Jesus Christ, this Easter, we also enjoy liberation through our country’s human rights.
We have no reason to hide behind locked doors. Instead, we take advantage of the freedom granted to us and we seek where prayer is needed; we seek where nappies are needed; we seek where forgiveness and reconciliation is needed; we seek for where we can assist where encouragement is needed; we do not hide as the disciples and our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ around the world were and are being forced to – we seek to be involved in what is already happening in God’s kingdom here on earth.
We seek to help the person sitting next to us; we seek to love the person who is the most difficult to love; we seek to intercede for those suffering around the world; we seek to engage in a healthy routine of daily and weekly worship of the God who sends us. And all because we can. We have the freedom to.
In the game of Hide and Seek – we are it. We seek on behalf of those who are forced to hide.”
