These are difficult days for our nation. In some ways what we are seeing is unprecedented. It is difficult to watch as the fabric of our country is dividing on so many fronts.
But we should not be surprised. I do not need to review that there have been many steps taken in a few short years that have contributed to where we are today. It primarily centers around all the ways in which we have departed from God. Why would we not expect what we are now seeing?
Certainly we hate seeing all the tensions, contentions and dissension that have captivated the country at this time.
No matter what the pundits have to say—and they say plenty, what they are totally missing and neglecting is there will be no peace until the Prince of Peace rules and reigns. And that is where we come in as believers. We can share with others about Jesus Christ. I love writing that. Jesus Christ, King of kings, Lord of lords, Supreme, Sovereign, Savior. It just makes me smile to know that I know Him.
The desperate cry of those around us will not be answered or satisfied with political or social answers. I remember a song from years ago that says that, “Jesus is still the answer, He’s always been and always will be.”
We have a command—tell others about Jesus. That does not mean that we are all going to be a great evangelist. It means that we can all be evangelistic. Look for opportunities to tell others about Jesus. We have nothing to be ashamed of. Just look around at what people are not ashamed of and they promote those things. Pray and ask God for the opportunities. Remember, the fields are ready to be harvested. What we must be are workers in the field.
The world needs Jesus. May we be faithful with the great message of salvation that has been given to us. Someone told you and I hope we will all tell others. Only then can there be true peace in the soul of man as well as between men.
This Sunday we will be blessed to hear Jason Fitch along with his family as they share about how God is at work in their church planting effort in Washington state.
As we look forward to worshipping together this Sunday, would you take a few minutes between now and then to pray for our church services and for Jason as well. Thank you so much.
