Bringing Light in Dark Days
When I read the paper each morning, I feel a bit like Marty McFly in the movie Back to the Future II. The malevolent "Biff" is now in charge, and the world has become a brutal, evil, violent place. Jesus said, "For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah." Those days of Noah were filled with vice and violence, spiritual apathy and social anarchy. Can you sense the signs of the times? I believe The Lord is coming soon. He is coming in righteousness to judge the world. Now to those who ignore Him, give Him no honor and revel in sin, His coming will bring great terror. But to those who do know and love Him, His coming will bring great joy. What will the coming of Christ bring to you? While no one knows what the future holds, we do know who holds the future. My prayer is that you’ll rest in His power and His grace and be a bold witness for Christ in these darkening days in which we live. If you do, you’ll be partnering with the Lord to bring the world real hope.
