Over the last number of months I have been reflecting a lot about the condition of America and the condition of the church. I am perplexed by both. I am having a difficult time understanding how the culture of the church and the culture of society has changed so radically in such a short period of time.
l’m not mad. I’m in shock and my heart is broken. Everything seems to be upside down. As much as I’m flabbergasted by the philosophies that are being expressed it’s like our society took some sort of “pill” that has altered people’s ability to think rationally and logically. I am literally seeing the fulfillment of Deuteronomy 12:8 where it says:
There is this voice inside of me which is speaking with passion … and clarity - You have to do it right. That was my thought from yesterday “Somebody has to do it right.” Are people seeing and hearing the Jesus in us? Do they hear love, mercy, compassion and an abundance of grace. Do they hear the voice of God or the voice of man.
This is our day, this is our hour - this is our moment. We’re it. God’s counting on us
