At a recent bible week in my church, the visiting Pastor was preaching on a series by the name ‘From Apathy to Victory’. It is so truly important that we as Christians step out of apathy and into victory.
This is particularly important to men as opposed to women because a man’s attitude can affect his whole family. I recently saw a statistic from an Irish Christian group which stated that if a child gets saved there is only a 3.5% chance of the family following, if the mother gets saved there is only a 17% chance, but the probability of a family following the father to faith in the Lord is a staggering 93%! Meaning that the majority of those whose father gets saved will follow him to salvation! What responsibility we have as husbands and fathers!
So imagine the damage we can cause if this responsibility is misused.
If a man is watching porn or worse, committing adultery on his wife, how much damage will he do to the whole family unit? How much does that reduce the chances of his children seeing the Lord as the great Father he is? What effect will this have on a daughter in life when she thinks this is how low her value is? How low will it bring a son’s view on women?
Apathy is a dangerous thing and it’s a slow fade from the odd peek at the Page 3 girl or watching an inappropriate movie, to porn and then the death of a family’s faith! We as men and women of God need to stand up and take our faith seriously! We need to put to death anything which stands in our way or holds us back from God’s victory in our lives no matter how small!
