Inconvenient Love

Apathy is the glove into which evil slips its hand – Bodie Thoene

I just finished reading Munich Signature for the third time (over 10 years) and this phrase jumped off the page to me. What she wrote about Hitler’s rise to power could just as well apply today in a world that seems intent on eliminating inconvenient people just as the Third Reich tried to eliminate the Jews. Only today it is found where unwanted elderly are herded into institutions and downs syndrome children are eliminated before birth. Uncomfortable opinions about the Bible are criminalized and Christians get welcomed out of virtually all public venues. Easy is just doing nothing or saying anything that might interrupt our nice sweet smooth lifestyle. But then God never called us to easy. He called us to love as Jesus did! And how did Jesus love? The answer is in the shape of a cross…

And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ Matthew 25:40 ESV
