What Do You Believe?

girl.jpgCan you believe

that in this modern day that we live

far removed from gladiators and arenas

and Christians being fed to lions

that we still have people being killed

for nothing more than believing in God

and trying to tell everyone about him.

 

It is hard to believe

that some of the people being killed

aren’t people from across the ocean

who grew up knowing violence

who lived their lives in poverty

who don’t know what they are missing

over here where we live

 

It is hard to believe

that some people feel the call of God so strongly

that they are willing to go

where it is dangerous to go

that they are willing to walk into the face of death

with nothing more than God on their side

 

It is hard to believe

that in this modern day that we live

there are still people who are willing to believe

that God is the only hope

and that he calls his followers to tell the world

 

So the question becomes

what do you believe?

Do you believe that there are people

who are dying to know the love of God

Do you believe that there are people

who are hurting and hungry

and waiting for someone to come and tell them?

do you believe?

 

And if you do believe

will you go

will you tell

will you help

will you touch

will you love

people who may never love you back

will you be a light

be a friend

be a comfort

be a messenger of hope

Will you go even though you may not return?

 

Do you believe?

Will you go?
