"I don't know what to do"
Do you hear that from people around you?
Does that same question flow from your own tongue more often than you'd like?
We're a people who like quick answers these days. Emails, Facebook, Twitter - they set us up to expect an instant, or near instant, response.
I wonder if that's why more and more Christians are taking their cues from the world around them, rather than "waiting patiently on the Lord"? (Psalm 37:7)
The Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Word of the Living God - with each passing year they are being watered down by the world, diluted to suit the tastebuds of a society gone mad.
Sadly, many Christians have bought into this - men and women who call themselves Christian.
I wonder do they stop to consider that by labeling themselves a 'Christian' they are declaring themselves followers of Jesus Christ? Yet, if they are followers of Jesus Christ they would not be watering down the Gospel or the Word of God to suit their own choices or lifestyle.
The truth is, He never let His people do that without serious repercussions.
I get angry when I hear politicians say, "If God were here today He would say **** is okay, because He is a God of love!"
Wow - have they read the Bible? Do they believe that He who is the same yesterday, today and forever, suddenly got cold feet and retreated from His precepts just so people wouldn't reject Him and man could do what he liked under the banner of selfish human-style love???
Are they creating God in their own image, forgetting we are created in His?!
His Word is a lamp to my feet.
His Word is a light to my path.
There isn't any other way.
I'm a Christian, what about you?
