We Can Support More Than Just Chicken
It’s great that so many Christ followers showed up to support Chick-fil-A. But there are many many other things that those who follow Christ could show up and support. A showing like the one for Chick-fil-A in these and other areas would send such a huge message of unity to the world since these are the areas where Christ followers tend to not show up in as many numbers:
In the Voting Booth – although if you check any number of polls and statistics it will reflect that Christians vote. Most of them will even tell you how often Christians vote and for what party. The question is how many Christ followers are showing up to support their party versus showing up to vote the way God has instructed? Think about what a positive and powerful message it would be to this nation and to the world if every Christ follower of voting age sought God first and then all voted in unison as prompted by God’s Holy Spirit.
In the Community – Most people that supported Chick-fil-A went to the one closest to their work or home. What would it look like if Christ followers showed up with that same level of intensity to support projects in their local community? How awesome would it be if all of the Christ followers living in the same communities got together, regardless of denominational affiliation and took on, one by one, projects or issues facing their community?
In the Sunday Celebration – I’m just wondering if record breaking numbers of Christ followers showed up to support Chick-fil-a, why are many polls speculating that at the current rate of closures more than 60% of local congregations will cease to exist in 10 years.
