It seems over the past few years that the greatest stuggle in the church today seems to be apathy. I see so called "Christians" that have no desire to to be active members of churches today or to witness to others about how God has changed their life. If we are a Child of God, truely been "Saved", then we all have something to tell others about. Too many people seem to want to do anything and everything accept be faithful to God and His church. I often wonder if it is me expecting to much or is it them not being committed enough. I also wonder if it might be that their heart has not been truely changed. The reason I say this is every time I read in the Scriptures about someone coming to know Jesus as Lord and Savior of their life, as soon as they are touched, they leave changed on the outside (their physical problem was healed) but they were also changed on the inside (Spiritually). They were changed to the point that they went and told others what had happened to them, even when Jesus instructed them not to. I just don't see this type of change happening today. I know that we are still serving the same God and that He has the same power to save and change hearts. So what is the difference today?
