The Eastern Apathy

18 May

The Eastern Apathy…

In Eastern religion and philosophy, Hinduism, Buddhism and New Age teaching, the goal is detachment. The self is God, so the individual selfhood is an illusion. The key is to detach from this illusion, from care, passion and desire.

Behind the flowery talk in Eastern religion, is apathy and detachment. In India, you will find the fruit of all this, which is misery. Many believers in Jesus live as if they are believers in apathy instead of the gospel.

They live lives apathetic about serving the Lord detached from the poor, the hungry, and those needing salvation. God is the opposite of apathy, which means to be without passion. God got so involved in the world He became one of us.

He was passionate about loving you, saving you and dying for you. If you belong to Him, renounce this apathy. Get passion into your life, your walk, your faith, your service and into your heart.

Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, spread the gospel, touch, care, and love, because your God is passionate about you. And the only way to respond is to live a life of passion for Him.

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Matthew 25:34-36

Renew your passion in your walk with God, focus on those who need to experience His love today. Reach out with a servant’s heart.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
