Well summer is right around the corner. Time to make our travel plans to see the world. Let’s see, there’s France, Hawaii, New York, the Alps, Olympics in China, Kenya safari, Italy/Greece, the Caribbean, cruising the oceans…. so many choices. Here’s a challenging thought from the Dec. 2004 issue of Voice of the Martyrs about what we are spending all our time on, in this life.
At an airport in India, the immigration officers stopped the son of one of our board members. They would not let this young man into the country. Looking over their shoulders, the American was able to read his own file on the computer screen. He saw the accusation: “religious activist”. A year earlier he had participated in a Christian musical presentation there. Now he was expelled, his passport was held, and he was escorted through two countries by various airport officials before being freed in the Phillipines. He had hoped to return to India, but carried his Hope elsewhere.
When God looks at the computer screen of our life on our Judgment Day, what will flash across about our time spent on earth, tourist or Christian activist (Christian worker)?
