Life these days seems like every thing is going down hill, just tonight one of the high schoolers I work with said that a 7th grader is now pregnant and a freshman is now engaged. To a high schooler this is a sign of the world going crazy, but the older you get the worse the world looks. Rampant corruption, wars, senseless death, and worst of all it seems like no one cares. Now I know that some people are working hard and trying to make the world a better place, but they cannot do it all. So where are the Christians in all of this? It seems as if most of them are either being hypocritical, Christian among their Christian friends and who ever they are with everyone else, or damning everyone that they believe is going to hell. Where are the true Christians?

I do not write this because I am better than anyone, to be totally honest I just might be worse. I work with high schoolers, trying to motivate and teach them to be better people. Sadly I fail, and I fall hard. I try and yet I have rarely gone out of my “comfort zone”, I am not out there preaching the news that I believe will bring someone eternal life. Have we(I) become senseless to what we see? Yes, to be honest the world has always been bad, whats happening now has all happened before, because when we become desensitized to what is happening, when something jars us out of our comfort zone we think its because we are seeing some thing new.

So how do we stop this, can we stop this? The answer is very simple, the pain is harsh, and we will fail. We will fail because we are human, but we will change because there is a God. We fail so He may pick us up, although we fail, we will slowly fix this world. Sadly the world will be the world, humans will always be human, and God will always be God. Does this mean its all pointless? Be no means! Romans 10:14-15 states How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”. So with this in mind it doesn’t matter how much we change the world in the end, what matters is who you followed and what you did with you existence. How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news.

Even though I may be a human, and I will fail, I will try. I may not always preach but I will try to be there for people, I may hurt the cause but I will try to fix MY mistake. I will all ways try, I hope that when I die, I can say I did my best to make the world a little bit better and that I saw others do the same.
