Agenda III...The Battle We Fight


"I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel" (Gal. 1:6).

As Jesus had His agenda, so do we have ours. We cannot turn our religion into a psychology course. In this "information at our finger tips age," we can't allow this plethora of easy information to steer us off course. We can't allow money, politics or any other issue set out agenda. The truth of the Word remains...Our youth must not allow circumstances to set their agenda. Only our God has this privilege.

After all, the issue is not issues....Its agenda! Our agenda, like that of Jesus, is to do the will of God through His Word. I remember in the movie the Godfather, when the bad guys were about to do a bad deed they would say, "Its not personal, its about business." Our agenda is not about feelings, although they play a part. Its not of opinion or personal preference, but rather the Truth of God.

The apostle Paul presents an accurate view in Galatians the first chapter. "I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of God and are turning to a different gospel." They had the truth and were deserting it. Abraham Lincoln, in an 1864 speech, made this comment to a delegation from the National Union League, who were urging him to be their presidential candidate. "An old Dutch farmer, remarked to a companion once that it was not best to swap horses when crossing streams."

We are in the "stream of life," and Christ is our "horse." To change horses would be tantamount to giving up on the Lord. It would be throwing our lives to the winds of chance. Nothing should separate us from the love of God. (Rom. 8:39) With all the pressures around Him, Jesus never wavered from His agenda. He became our role model, showing us the way through the Father.

Lets stay "ON AGENDA!" Lets let God through Jesus Christ, put us on course and keep us there. It is the way to salvation...

Have a great day...Let your light shine for Him... Love mark Phil. 4:11
