Be An Overcomer: Apathy


Key Scripture


A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
Luke 10:31-32 NIV

3 Key questions...


Why don’t we care like Jesus calls us to care? 

  1. The volume of information is overwhelming.

  2. We feel helpless to make a change.

  3. We are blessed and cursed with comfort.

How do we overcome apathy?

Consistently expose yourself to something that creates a righteous discomfort.

With Christ as my witness, I speak with utter truthfulness. My conscience and the Holy Spirit confirm it. My heart is filled with bitter sorrow and unending grief for my people, my Jewish brothers and sisters. I would be willing to be forever cursed—cut off from Christ!—if that would save them. Romans 9:1-2 NLT

How do we channel our passion?

1. Focus on something.

Rather than making a little difference in many places, make a big difference in a few.

2. Embrace what hurts.

It’s easier to hurt with a purpose than to exist without one.
