The Walking Dead

“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

It is hard to imagine an entire generation of the world’s populous as “the walking dead” who have absolutely no care, concern, or connection with the Savior of the World. This American horror story is colored in fiction, but is factually true. There are thousands of “survivors” out there who are searching the world for love, peace, and a safe haven. They are surrounded by the “aftermath” of a fallen world. A world that may not have “flesh-eating zombies”, but something much worst. This enemy, Satan, is a “predatory walker” and for centuries has infected the heart and mind of almost everyone he touches. This touch always leads to death.

The true “walking dead” cannot find solace in science or strangers. Instead, the only true anecdote for their salvation is belief and complete trust in God. They desire a Savior, but find safety in ammunition.  They feel abandoned and alone with no hope, but God has not abandoned them as the TV series portrays. God knows every last road in Georgia and designed the map to each survivor’s heart. 

The Walking Dead fail to realize that the battle has already been won. Their momentary troubles are just a slight “trip” on a trail. Their eyes are fixed on the wrong things and because of that they make wrong decisions. The power of suggestion is great. Dying transfixes the Walking Dead.

Many of us allow the “zombies” to control us and we too are dying inside. Instead of fighting temptation with Bible verses as our ammunition, we roll over and give in to every thought instead of taking it captive. In the battle of our mind, we feel abandoned and alone. We search for a safe haven, yet fail to fight. We demand an anecdote or a government handout, but we are forced to face the truth that the battle for sin is won and lost in our minds. Whatever gets your attention, gets you. It is time that we stop hiding behind fake distortions of truth. We need to reveal that “we have been bitten”, but this is not the end. We are unclean, but Christ has made us clean. We may seem as dead, but Christ has given us true life. Let our enemies run in fear because “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (I Cor. 15:155).
