The story of Jonah from Corinth Baptist Church on Vimeo.
Now for some reflection. How many of you, dear readers, are like Jonah? How many of you stubbornly dig in your heels and refuse to heed the Lord's call to speak the truth? How many of you refuse to go out to the abortuaries to offer prayer and assistance? We are not called to be comfortable, but to take up our crosses. When we finally meet the Lord at our particular judgment day (e.g., when we die), what will we say to Him?
The world is literally dying for lack of authentic Christian witness. By virtue of your baptism, you have been called to be the Church Militant, not the church mellow nor the church mish-mosh. Get up and get moving.
