Let's Be Saints
Lines have been drawn, and darkness has invaded our world. But darkness has always been here. Since the beginning, evil has slithered around us, and as children of God, we have been called to bring light into world. That is not an easy thing to do. We will be ridiculed. (Matthew 5:11-12) We will lose friends and family. (Luke 12:51)
He told us so.
I do believe we are now seeing the beginning of the chastisement, and we have been chosen for this day and this time. As J.R.R. Tolkien said through Gandalf, "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
So what do we do?
We must be brave and follow the advice of actor Jim Caviezel. He is certainly a beacon of light in the midst of this darkness. He stated, "Set yourselves apart from this corrupt generation. Be saints. You were not made to fit in. You were born to stand out."
So, let's be saints and follow those who have gone before us.
