A wave of superficiality has swept over believers.
There is a heaviness in my heart.
We don’t want to talk about the heavier things, the important matters, the topics with substance anymore.
Why is it that it’s so easy, and even preferred, to talk about the latest celebrity news, but so difficult to talk about our spiritual lives?
I no longer want to talk about who did this and who did that; I want to talk about your heart.
I want to know how you’ve been doing, what’s been bothering you, and how I can pray for you.
I want to know how I can love you.
I no longer want to stand at the doorstep of superficial friendship.
For what gain do we, as saints, have conversing about unedifying topics?
We are on a mission to grow in love and to spread love. To disciple and be discipled.
Brothers and sisters, let us not refrain from speaking about the heavier things.
For in the end, those are the matters that will hold.
It may be uncomfortable. And we are inherently geared to shy away from such topics.
But God wants you to grow and that entails coming face to face with the depths of your very heart.
I promise you, the latest gossip will hold no significance when you are standing in front of God’s throne. I promise.
“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”
— Col. 3:1-2
