I find I have this issue. It may be because I am a protector of people, it may be my own righteous/unrighteous indignation, it could very well be my lack of trust in the creator of the world…but my issue is that I tend to want to step in and make sure people don’t screw up the church and/or the name of Jesus…its sounds noble…but I’m not sure it is.
You see, here is the problem. When someone does something that I am wholly against and they push there own agenda I want to fight. I want to take out Billboards, newspaper ad space, and hire a sky writer to defend the truth and what I believe to be correct, especially when it comes to the church. I automatically question, the speed, time, motivation, and other such unknowables of those individuals who feel as though the world owes them something as they appear to take advantage of things while seemingly getting away with it.
All that to ask the question…why? I, like everyone else has some form of convictions and I, like everyone else have opinions…some of which are very strong and yet I find that some of these opinions lead me rather than allowing God to lead me. If I believe in the sovereignty in God…which I do…then why do I try and do His job?
Those are my thoughts for the day. I’m done now. Seriously though, am I the only one that struggles with this?
