So I just finished watching Killer At Large a documentary about obesity in America. Then we also have One Day Without Shoes coming up on Thursday. I began thinking, what is it with us and our causes?
Now arguably the documentary addresses the cause differently then how we would think of a cause, but it still addresses it nonetheless. Why though do we attach ourselves to causes? I heard someone tell me they weren't purchasing Toms, because on their universities campus they have become more of a fashion statement then supporting a cause.
Why though can we not be this way about the cause of Christ? I hinted at this earlier tonight in a tweet that said "If we are a nation of addicted people, then why as "Christians" are we not addicted to Christ?" Our calling as Christians is to make his name known, this was presented in several places, the most popular being the great commission: Matthew 28:16-20.
This is what we are supposed to do, support the cause of Christ. We however have a tendency to get caught up in supporting other causes, that are just as great, but we miss Christ in the cause. If our cause is Christ, then we won't miss Him, and everything that happens when we are furthering the cause of Christ, will help further other causes as well.
