In the first 50 years of the 20th century, a dark age descended on to the world.  Civilization is plunged into the Great Depression and two World Wars.  Historian John Keegan noted that after World War I, there were 29 democracies.  By the middle of World War II, there were only 12 left.  The first half of the 20th century is characterized by death, destruction and devastation.

What happened?

The first 50 years of the 20th century was also dominated by 5 men – Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill.
3 were tyrants.
The other 2 saved the world from them.

For every evil man in power, God matched with an equally good man in leadership.
For every Pharaoh, there is a Moses.
For every Saul, there is a David.
For every Ahab, there is an Elijah.
For every Haman, there is an Esther.
For every Judas, there is a John.
So if you see evil people rising around you and wonder, “Where are the good men?” – look at the man in the mirror.
For every ungodly person, there is a “you”.

Sometimes while we are waiting for God, God is waiting for us.
The lyrics of Matthew West’s song “Do something” is enlightening.
“Children sold into slavery
The thought disgusted me
So, I shook my fist at Heaven
Said, “God, why don’t You do something?”
He said, ‘I did, I created you’”

Boom!  That’s the brutal truth.
In our classroom, office, family, society and even church, God created you and I to do something!

“The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”
– Edmund Burke

The world is not waiting for the Avengers to save them.
The world is waiting for a few good and godly men and women to do something.

This year is the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.  Hitler’s Luftwaffe was trying to bomb London into submission.  The heroic pilots of the RAF rose up and soared into the air in righteous defiance.  In a speech during the Battle of Britain, Churchill said: “Never was so much owed by so many to so few.”  Ever since, the pilots who fought in this epic battle against evil have been known as “The Few”.

Christians, let’s rise up and be counted among “The Few”.

    Amen. The world was created to match the good to the evils, nevertheless, we are as good as we can to be evil in God’s creation.Yet, evil can be as good when we as good Christians rise up!

    Love the juxtaposition! So much truth in this! So inspired to be counted among “The Few”.

    Wow SP, this is so powerful and inspiring. It’s so true that God’s solution to every problem is always a man. Very inspired by this post, will always ask ourselves- “if not me then who?”. Thank you for taking out your time to write such an insightful post to remind our generation. This is really an important lesson for us to know and to learn!
