I was recently doing undercover work at a notorious strip club in downtown Des Moines, when I overheard one naked harlot say to another, "Why are
True Christians™ here, anyway?"
Her question stuck with me, and as I contemplated her incisiveness, I came to the realization that many if not most of the unsaved scum in the world probably don't KNOW why we're here.
If God had willed it, each of us might have entered Heaven at the moment of Salvation©. It was not absolutely necessary for our preparation for immortality that we should tarry here, you see...
Had the Lord so willed it, He might have changed us from imperfection to perfection and then have taken us to Heaven the moment that father's messenger found its way home.
Why then are
we True Christians™ here?
The answer is – We are here to…
Live unto the Lord, Praising Him constantly
bring others to know His love.
We True Christians™ remain on earth
as sowers to scatter good seed
as ploughmen to break up the fallow ground
as heralds publishing Salvation
We are here as the “salt of the earth,” to be a Blessing to the world.
We are here to glorify Christ in our daily life.
We are here as workers for Him, as His personal representatives on earth (depending on your current Tithing status, of course
Let us see that our life fulfills God's goal for us. Let us live earnest, useful, Holy lives, to the Praise of the Glory of his Grace!
