I entitled this Devotional "Turn the cameras on, for the reason that the secullar world seems to be blind to the concept of Jesus Christ and what sacrifices were made on his behalf. Look at the world in the way they view the basic idea that Jesus died for them.
Look at what influenes the world today, Music , videos, and the basic form of living for yourself.... at the surface living for yourself looks good "so does an ice cream sandwhich when you first look it, but whos to say that ice cream sandwhich won't melt before you take the time to eat it."
Have you looked at the music charts lately?
The whole list/ charts is primarly based on popularity and play time. One week the chart could be Akon's "DANGEROUS." The next week Americas favourite song could be Brittney Spears Womanizer."
While those types of music is in the public eye, what about the artists who deliver a positive message about kindness, being strong and living life cause we all have a purpose.
Just to give you a couple of examples heres a couple videos.
First the Christian Videos
T-Bone - Name Droppin'
T-Bone - Can I live
The familliar music videos
Akon - Dangerous
I am asking you step back in reality maybe Kayne West was right when he Made this video
Kayne West - Jesus Walk
Think about it!
Tonights verse we look at
2 Corinthians 4:5-1816 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits ared]">[d] being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
When in doubt just a quick reminder for you "Jesus gave His all to save us. Are we giving our all to serve him?
