First thing I want to say is that people are people no matter where they live. Without relationship with Jesus Christ everyone is lost and empty. Someone might be richer or smarter than the other but they are both lost and empty. A person begins to live when God awakens their spirit and filles them with His Holy Spirit. Just few days ago I had this opportunity to spend time with followers of Jesus from Albania and Kosovo. The same light in the eyes, the same joy, the same tears, the same purpose, the same father. How beautiful! And on the other hand the world is just building walls, building hatred, building lies, blind leading the blind. And if we are not different who will be? If we don't stand for what we believe who will?
The other thing is the feeling when you have had a great victory, when you have done something good, encouraged someone, just had a great experience with God, or came home after a great service or a great worship time and then you just feel disillusioned. Lonely. What's all this about? It just doesn't make a sense. But friends, it does make sense. We are part of something bigger than us, something that we might never understand fully here on earth. Our feelings change, but that does not change the truth. So let's hold on! Think of the coming glory. Think of the One who went through such rejection and ran the race to the end. We have seen the end of the movie. WE WON!
