Christians do make a difference

I am all excited about the possibilities of the future. I know and have believed for years of the power of God in any and every situation. But to see a mainstream media report about it puts a different light on the situation. Of course, they gave credit to the people involved, by the real credit goes to the Almighty God. I have seen many ideas of Christian leaders fall flat regardless of how organized they are...but this is interesting.

The Washington Post had an article yesterday about the major impact evangelical Christians had on this election year. In fact, they gave all credit for George W. Bush's win to the organizational efforts of evangelicals. THAT'S SO COOL! It isn't cool because they gave credit, but because it is true.

There are times in our lives when we have to take a stand and risk being treated poorly for what we believe. Image how it would have been for all those committed Christians if GW had not won. I thought about it when I committed to help. But we/they still did it.

What does that have to do with California? Weren't we a BLUE state?

But think of the possibilities. If Christians throughout California decide to stand up for what we believe instead of sitting back and letting a newsreporter tell us how things are or how they will be. Apparently, when it came down to it, Christians waited in line to vote in Ohio as late as 1am because it was that important. You think people have opinions here, they were having election visits daily in a state whose population is smaller than LA County alone. We can have an impact here. Now. We just have to be willing to get off the couch, stop playing video games and do something, not simply talk about it.

Didn't James say "Faith without works is dead..."? Come on California Christians, let's get to work!
