What can we do to make a difference? Is there anything that we could achieve by standing against the majority, and defying the rejection of faith that we see the world?
The only thing that we have the ability to do is to make a stand, to declare what we believe and that we are not going to be ashamed of those beliefs. We have to fight injustice when we see it, giving to people according to their needs while being true to our faith even when the rest of the world does not want us to be.
Christians recently took a stand over the issue of gay marriage, showing a remarkable amount of unity when in the past we have allowed divisions and disagreements to break us apart. If we can unite over this, then we must unite over other issues as well, and be stirred up to make a difference to the communities that we are part of, whether they be local, national or international.
Seeing the problems that the world faces, we cannot do nothing. It is our duty to help to fight these problems, some things that can be solved by having the solid foundation of faith, and others by simply extending an arm out to those in need.
It is time to stand up and be counted.
