Resist Apathy

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its savor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men” Matthew 5:13, Berean Study Bible.

Apathy is a lack of interest, enthusiasm, or concern. It is the kind of thinking that says, the whole world can go to hell in a handbasket and I wouldn’t care. It is gradually losing hope, losing your fire, and the desire to try. I read the news, see the rejection of Jesus on a global scale, see the strife and hurt believers inflict on one another with no conviction at all, and the destruction all around us. The Lord helps me fight against every thought that tells me to stop caring so much. It is because God cares. He cares about every person—whether they know Him or not.

Years ago, my prayer was, Lord help me to care. Now, my prayer is, Lord help me to never stop caring no matter what. With His Help, we must continue to be the salt of the earth, never losing our saltfulness, never losing our sincere interest in the souls of people and their coming into a true knowledge of Jesus. With His help, we must never lose our enthusiasm about the effectiveness of the gospel of Jesus and how it is the power of God unto salvation. With His help, we must never decrease in concern for the spiritual and physical welfare of every human being. We must be resilient in being the salt and light God created us to be!

Prayer: Father, help me to care. Then, help me never stop caring. Help me to care about what you care for. Let my heart stay interested, enthusiastic and concerned about your Kingdom agenda. I submit to you and I resist the enemy. I resist apathy in all it’s forms. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read John 3:16; Romans 1:16; James 4:7)

  2. Lord, help me. For it is hard to see you in the midst of chaos, confusion, lies, hatred and deception. I know you are not the author of what is happening and how only Your presence shown can change the heart of human. I ask that You help me to see things through Your eyes and use me to help You more in these dark times. Help us Lord. Some of our leaders are following short.

    Let the blood brought Saints who worship You in spirit and truth come forth and stand out as Your salt while I ask that You come like a Mighty wind in have Your way in Earth as in Heaven. Keep our souls in and for You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
