Taking Sides

There are two things that are pretty apparent in today's world; 1. Christians are not gathering for worship, service, and study like they should. 2. The world is getting worse (more evil). Neither of these two facts take God by surprise.

 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.  And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,  not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. – Hebrews 10:23-25
So...What can we do about it? 
First, we need to make church a priority instead of a second (or third...) choice. Our desire to meet with God's people as His family has to mean something of utmost importance. Those around us will notice, and we'll be better for it.
 Second, we need to be proactive in our stance for God's plan and ways (righteousness). Praying constantly and speaking up when we have our chance. The church's silence in the face of evil has done as much to promote wickedness as the enemy himself. There is definitely a battle being raged between good and evil.
Whose side are you on?
