The abbreviation CIA means “Central Intelligence Agency.” This column wants to put a new meaning on those letters: “Christians In Action.” Even as Christians, we tend to follow our emotions instead of Jesus, and that move can get us in trouble! Instead of playing “Tug-of-war” with the world, we can listen to what Jesus tells us to do.
“If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.” Luke 9:23
“Let your light shine before others so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
As we approach the Easter holiday, we can be thankful for all Jesus has done and what He promises to do in our lives. Our Lord has gone before us and does not let us go through anything alone. The only way this crazy life will work is if we become CHRISTIANS IN ACTION working together as we trust and rely on Him.
