Now that we have called upon the Lord, we are not afraid, but what’s next? Does it now become our job to save others? Well let’s look at the scripture and see, Galatians 6:2 states, “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” The ghostbusters job is to save people from the fears and dangers that they may not know even exist. “Who ya gonna call?” Often times we turn to others in our community before we turn to God, because as a people we yearn to be supported and protected by those around us. But even when we are not directly asking God for help, the actions and deeds we do to help those around us is the same light that God gives us to save each other, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
God works in many different ways, one of the most common is to work through people who believe in him to strengthen others beliefs or create new believers entirely. Who are we to say no when God calls us to the task? Yet we are never alone, the ghostbusters were a team and so are we. With God as our backing we have the whole christian community working together to save the people around us from their burdens and fears, it’s our job just to answer the call.
