Isaiah 35:4, 5 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompense; he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
In today’s world, it may seem at times as if Christians are fighting a losing battle. Television displays homosexuality as the norm and gives this group not only prominent airtime, but also now titles programming with their slogans of “Gay” and “Queer.” We have judges who have sworn to uphold the constitution that will stand up for artwork on display in front of our little children in public with nudity and profanity because it is called art and freedom of speech. However, these same judges want to take down a monument of the Ten Commandments because it might “influence someone.” Pornography is everywhere you look from television, magazines and on the internet. If someone tries to block it from our youth in places like public libraries, we are called narrow-minded. The lyrics to songs and the language on almost all media are, what was called “gutter language” when I was a child. Cussing and swearing is to our children now just normal speech. There is sin everywhere. Moreover, as bad as it seems in the United States, reports from around the world seem worse.
What can we do? Where do we turn? The answer today is the same as it has been since Christ rose from the tomb. We keep sharing the gospel, turn to other believers and to Christ. God gave us the church for just such a time as this.
We can all rest assured, there will come a time when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ Is Lord of all. Until then we must keep on keeping on for the glory of God.
