Manifesto of the Moment

This is the moment for the followers of Jesus.

This is not the moment to shrink back in fear; it is the moment to deny ourselves, pick up our cross, and follow him.

This is not the moment to deny that we know and love Jesus; it is the moment to represent him as ambassadors.

This is not the moment to play games with the truth; it is the moment to be unashamed of the gospel.

This is not the moment to be flavorless or hidden in the shadows; it is the moment to be salt and light.

This is not the moment to hold onto petty offenses; it is the moment turn our attention to worthier things.

This is not the moment to wallow in bitterness; it is the moment to forgive and be forgiven.

This is not the moment merely to please ourselves or serve our own interests; it is the moment to seek first the kingdom of Christ and his righteousness.

This is not the moment to turn away from those who are in need; it is the moment to show goodness and mercy in his name.

This is not the moment to give in to fear or mediocrity; it is the moment to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit.

This is not the moment to compromise our integrity; it is the moment to honor our commitments.

This is not the moment to be prideful or judgmental; it is the moment to show kindness to strangers, and to friends.

This is not the moment to get lost in worry; it is the moment to pray without ceasing.

This is not the moment to rely upon the doctrines of devils or men; it is the moment to return to God’s Word.

This is not the moment to be complacent about the lost; it is the moment to make disciples in all nations.

This is not the moment to slander God’s people; it is the moment to edify one another.  

This is not the moment to shrink back; it is the moment to show courage and faith.

This is not the moment to dwell in successes or failures of the past; it is the moment to reach for the prize that lies ahead.

This is not the moment to hold anything back; it is the moment to love God with everything we are.  

This is the moment.
