When the world seems too big

Recently Hunter and I read through Hebrews 11 and to sum it up, it was reminding Christ-followers how through faith alone, people have been able to accomplish some of the greatest things. It then brought forth a question and statement that's been on my mind for some time:
"How can we even begin to explain this to a non-believer and I have felt like we've been up against such odds lately."
And when I say odds, I'm referencing to the overwhelming amount of people who are without Hope. I started looking at the vast numbers and became so utterly lost in how we are so alone in our fight for Good in this world. At how brothers and sisters are just living their lives without much thought into their purpose. And how I just wish, wish, wish things could be made right.
Then I was reminded that it doesn't do me any good in looking at the entire picture as a whole because yes, it is overwhelming and depressing. But if I can look at it day-by-day, minute-by-minute, and live my life on fire for Him, then He will take care of the rest. Brothers and sisters - stop wasting your lives just by going to church on Wednesdays and Sundays because "that's what momma and daddy taught me." Seize life by the horns and live each day with True purpose.

  1. If I may say so, Kelly, this is basically the reason I find 'faith alone' so unappealing. Sadly, many believers seem to consider that if they make their profession of faith, and mean it at that moment, then not much else is needed for their salvation. Some seem to believe its enough to say the right thing and then to live as if God did not exist. At its worst, some make a virtue of it - I've seen people actually claim that they don't want to do good or helpful things because this is too much like saving oneself through works :(
