In times like these, we need a Savior!
If we look around at all the stuff going on in the world, most of us would end up shaking our heads–wondering what is going on?
Life–a very precious commodity–is not respected on so many levels that there is not space enough on this blog to tell it all. People are being killed because of jealousy, hatred, and in some cases–just because–they were at the wrong place at the wrong time–because someone hated themselves enough to disrespect the lives of others.
We tolerate people making fun of Christians, belittling their beliefs and then we parade–highly profile–what God has said is sin. How crazy is that. On one hand–men say, “don’t share your religious beliefs, that’s your personal business” and on the other hand, “please share your sexual exploitations–the world needs to know” and then we celebrate the openness and courage of “sin”! Have we got this twisted or what?
Parents do not parent–they would rather be buddies with their children than their parents.
Children do not respect any adults because they have no respect for their parents.
Preachers disrespect their calling and in the office in which they have–they say one thing and do everything else. Hypocrites, is what Jesus called.
Criminals have more rights than law-abiding citizens and the only justice available is left up to those sitting on a bench who have political agendas to promote. And then we wonder why people take matters into their own hands?
Legislators legislate laws that only benefit the wealthy–forget about the poor and the needy, the vulnerable–the very people Christians have been mandated to care about in defending their rights.
Oh Yes! In times like these, we need a Risen Savior and I am very sure, my anchor will hold against the tide that rises up against those who believe and confess–that Jesus Christ is Lord!
