I dare you to watch this video. Go ahead. Take five minutes out of your day and watch it. But I’ll warn ya, it’s an eye opener.
My church is showing a documentary about human trafficking called Nefarious later in March, so today I decided to watch this opening scene to see what it’s about. Watching this video stirred up more emotions in me than I thought it would; anger, disgust, hate. I can’t believe this is happening.
These so-called men are degrading millions of women, raping them, forcing them to have sex with them for money. And this sex trafficking, this act of slavery, is the 3rd largest industry in the world.
This makes me sick; the power than someone can have to ruin another’s life. The fact that these men feel entitled and deserving of the right to molest women is terrifying. This can’t happen. It has to stop.
So what are we doing to stop it?
Honestly, what are you fighting for these days? What do you care about most in life? Is what you’re fighting worthy of your time? Is it going to make any difference in the grand scheme of things?
Here’s the more important question, are you fighting for anything?
What are you doing with your life, man? Going through the daily grind just to get by? Do you not see the hurt and injustice in the world? Just look around at your coworkers, your family, the stranger you pass in the street…I guarantee you each and every one of those people are hurting in someway. Everyone is struggling, searching for hope, trying to find meaning in life.
That’s the problem with the daily grind. We get caught up in ourselves and doing what we’ve got to do to get by that we tend to forget about what’s going on in the world.
We’ve got work to do. We’ve got souls to save. If you call yourself a Christian, then start acting like one. Don’t take that to mean anything than this: God calls us to make disciples. He calls us to follow him. To live a life like Christ did. To take care of the poor, widowed and orphaned. To stand up for the weak. To be a light in the darkness. To be the salt of the Earth. To promote God with our lives because we’re the closest to Christ that some people will ever see.
Am I saying quit your job and move across seas? No. Unless that’s what God calls you to do, then yes.
I’m just saying stop being a punk and start fighting for the cause of Christ. Because there’s no other cause worth fighting for more.
