As a mother of 10 and a popular Christian blogger and cultural activist, Elizabeth Johnston has slain a few cultural giants over the past few years. With hundreds of thousands of social media followers, the woman known as the Activist Mommy has crusaded against issues such abortion and gender insanity with some incredible results.
When advising her followers of what they can do to help advance the kingdom of Christ, however, Johnston tells them to start small.
"You don't just go and slay a giant right out of the ballpark," Johnston told Dr. Steve Greene in a recent episode of "Greenelines" on the Charisma Podcast Network. "God gives you a bear and a lion to slay first, and then your giant will come. Be faithful in whatever it is that God has laid upon your heart.
"Is it a backyard Bible club for your neighborhood? Is it taking your children out to the abortion clinic and praying? Is it going to city council and telling them that you will not tolerate 200-pound men being in the dressing rooms and locker rooms at your daughter's ... whatever that thing that you're passionate about, maybe it's the sex-ed situation at her school, just be faithful in that little thing.
"You will be amazed at how God will use you to change that situation for good, how He will fight on your behalf in the midst of that, no matter what kind of pushback you get. And then let me tell you, He's going to bless you with some bigger battles if you want to be used even [more mightily] of God. He will bless you, and you'll be slaying giants before you quit."
