Trying to enhance a string that's too long
What does it mean to be chosen by God? It's the greatest blessing in all the world and the greatest responsibility. What would it mean if Jesus came back now? It would be the greatest moment ever seen amidst the world's climactic conclusion.

Actors, models and talent for Christ: As the Lord's chosen generation, what are your responsibilities?

1) To remain vigilantly aware of your King's imminent return and be about your Father's business.

2) To work faithfully and make amends for the previous generations who didn't look or act like Jesus.

3) To go unto all of earth's people as ambassadors for Jesus Christ: with love, joy, peace, patience and kindness.

4) To help widows, orphans and strangers; prisoners and those in great distress: to visit them and nurture them.*

5) To invest God's talents in the world; to multiply them and shine His light; to find lost lambs who've been led astray.

6) To lead a church not defined by walls, where worship is in Spirit and Truth. Your only Rules are the Words of Christ.

7) To be the generation that cares more about pleasing God than people: where His Smile is the One you most crave.

To Be Continued...

* People can be spiritually poor and confined, too, as evidenced in the Letter to the Lukewarm (Laodicean) Church in the Book of Revelation.** Countless fans have been bought, sold and enslaved by media merchandisers using the examples of greedy, confused or careless celebrities, who have also been misled. Actors, models and talent for Christ can rise on the the dragon's back to reach many of these lost sheep.
