Luke 3:10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
Everywhere you turn, and almost every day you will hear people asking this same question. What shall we do?
What shall we do about violence?
What shall we do about the needy?
What shall we do about broken homes?
What shall we do about drugs?
What shall we do about teen pregnancy?
What shall we do about sinful lifestyles?
What? What? Is there an answer? Is there anything or anyone who can help? The problem is today, people do not want to hear the truth. The answer to all these problems is today, as it has been for centuries, JESUS. When people give their lives to Jesus, and truly serve Him, we see a multitude of what were problems, turned around and lives are changed. These past situations can then be used to glorify God. We must turn to God by faith in His Son Jesus.
Most people today however want facts not faith. “Show me the facts,” they say. Well, if they would hear them, the facts are there. The fact is Jesus is the way the truth and the life. The fact is He died to cleanse us and help us overcome sin. The fact is if we were to spend more time winning people to Christ and teaching them the biblical way of life, there could be less violence, broken homes, drug problems, and teen pregnancy. The problem may be that people are just not listening. On the other hand, the problem may be that we as Christians are simply not telling them.
As today unfolds, listen to your family, co-workers, classmates, and friends. Listen for the question, “what can we do about…” or “what should be done about…” When you hear those words, you can be confident in telling them, JESUS is the answer. In every situation, you will be right. JESUS is always the answer.
