There is something that is sweeping American evangelical churches like the plague, apathy. It is a disease. There needs to be a radical heart transformation in the life of churches. Paul writes that we are to, “walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which [we] have been called,” (Eph. 4:1). This does not seem to be happening. There is more passion and desire for accumulating possessions than there is for impacting this world for Christ.
What will it take for there to be passionate Christ-followers? God will have to do something dramatic to get our attention. I am not talking about a person doing something dramatic, but God. It will take Him shaking our personal worlds. I am certain that all Christ-followers (including myself) need to remember what God has done for us through Christ (read Ephesians 1-2 for example). God please change our hearts!
