These are strange times indeed.
Strange and trying times — who knows what we’d wake up to, tomorrow?
For some, the challenge is the uncertainty that pervades, and permeates almost all strata of society.
For some, it’s fear.
Some just wonder….
And some have refused to give up hope.
I wonder though, what the place of the Church is, in all of this?
What should be our response?
Where is the power of our God we have always preached about?
What is God saying about these strange and trying times this world now grapples with?
We need to know, because so far, the ways and methods of the world has not helped very much.
When a world is broken and troubled by festering wounds, where is the hope for healing?
So many questions, but how can a blind world see the light that’s needed for its healing?
Only those who have found the light can show the way.
Only those who have been healed can say with certainty and conviction that healing is possible.
They might not want to hear our testimony….
They might not believe us….
But it is our duty to look inwards, mine the truth that’s planted within, and let our lights shine.
No matter how thick darkness is, even the littlest light is able to break through and make a difference.
If you have light, let your own light shine where you’re planted. It might not seem like it’s doing much, but it’s breaking through, somehow….
And many little lights shining, would eventually help this world see what their true need is.
Whether we do our part or not….
The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in His works (Psalm 104:31).
But, what would you rather be doing, if not standing in your place?
Is the Church awake yet?
