We need an awakening – a massive arising of soldiers suited up and prepared for the battle at hand. It is obvious; darkness covers our land – a deep darkness. It’s time for the children of faith to stand up and be counted.
No longer can we hide in the shadows of complacency and humdrumness. That is not our charge as children of the light. Our mantle is one of deep urgency to spread the light of Christ upon this earth.
How have we fallen so far away from our roots? We have disengaged from the deep heritages where our leaders made bold statements of solid faith. Eyes, once locked on the truths written in the Bible, these granules of wisdom have been traded for human knowledge.
It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”- 1 Corinthians 1:30, 31
Oh, may we be wise in the eyes of the LORD; and seek his face when we need genuine understanding.
This world can teach us nothing of value. Instead of the richness in Christ, it will hand you imitation gold and silver – utterly useless.
Christ gives you the genuine.
When the world’s facade fades, he hands you the nonperishable bread of life. And, if you ask – he grants you his overflowing wisdom.
For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. – 1 Corinthians 1:25
Let’s lift up our voices in one accord and cry out to Jesus for the wisdom that trumps mortal knowledge. We must pray that eyes and ears are opened across the country – and a true yearning for the truth is distributed throughout every beating heart.
May minds once again rest in the blessed assurance of Christ’s security and provision. May we trust in his victory that has already been claimed by his blood sacrifice and resurrection!
