For many young people this week was “Spring Break.” It was a time for a break from school and the supposed pressures of academia. It was a break for some teachers—though not all because many teachers do not actually have a “Spring Break." It was a break for school bus drivers and some various positions that also receive the benefit of a break.
Sadly, the secular world of college students (and even some Christians) use Spring Break as time to indulge in their own fleshly desires. Some of the beaches of Florida are notorious for wicked behavior during Spring Break. As the Scripture says, “…never satisfied are the eyes of man.” (Prov. 27:20b)
As believers, we have many joys and privileges. We have many benefits for which we can give thanks to the Lord. Even though we face the rigors and pressures and struggles and temptations of living in a fallen world, we are blessed beyond measure. And we have the power of the new life in Christ so that we do not have to live according to the flesh…Spring Break or not!
Our culture is spiraling out of control and as the book title from many years ago by former federal court Judge Robert H. Bork, we are “Slouching Toward Gomorrah.” Though written many years ago, we know we are not becoming a more moral nation. This is and should be of great concern to everyone whether they are a believer or not.
And yes, we do know and have the answer. It is not found in politics or even in a better moral culture. It is found in Christ alone. The need is for fallen men to know that the only hope for now and for eternity is in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
As you look around you, don’t overlook the lost. Look at the lost. Don’t just see their sin, see their need. And you and I are the ones who are to spread the good news of salvation.
With Easter just one week from this Sunday, would you pray for the opportunity to witness to a lost person? Would you invite someone to join us for Easter Sunday Resurrection Celebration? It would be great to see visitors but more importantly, it would be a great cause of rejoicing to see several come to Christ as their Savior on Easter Sunday. Please pray…and invite and witness.
I look forward to worshiping the Lord together with you this Sunday. Please be in prayer for me and for our services.
