What I committed to God tonight

Tuesday, May 3, 2016, 9:48 pm | Randy Thomasson

This evening I didn’t watch any painful political news. Instead, I went to Costco and bought some organic, God-made food that we needed.

As I waited in the check-out line, I looked at the marquee above the food court. All processed, even fake “food.”

Then I looked at three young children sitting in three different shopping carts facing their parents. The two oldest, who had to be around 4 years old, had android phones in their hands. One girl was even tapping at it. The third girl was younger and had no electronic device but was gazing around with big eyes.

And I committed three things to God:

1. I pledged myself to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to love and serve Him and live for Him despite the world following the flesh and power and the pleasure of sin instead of following Creator God and His holy word and enjoying His favor.

2. I pledged myself to seek godly things — including godly food — not the destructive, processed and fake “food” of the world that hurts the body.

3. And I pledged myself to think and pray how I could do more for children like the ones sitting in the shopping carts. Whether you consider them a blank slate or depraved from birth, they’ve been born into a culture that is more dark, pagan, and dangerous than ever in this nation. They need to be rescued!

If you want to encourage me and our Campaign for Children and Families team to keep going — and growing — to shine the light of God’s truth in courageous and practical, tangible ways in our culture, I would appreciate your vote of confidence at this time.

Thank you for thinking about how to grow in faith and love!

When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”
