Just Show Them Jesus
“……..that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life……….Philippians 2:15-16, NKJV
This world is dark, speaking spiritually, morally, emotionally, socially, and financially. The world is in need of spiritual light whether they realize it or not.
Hatred, riots, protests, drugs, murders, abuse and violence runs rampant and free in many cities in our nation. The truth is that police in many cities over overwhelmed and overrun with drug and crime areas in their city. When they enter these areas they are putting their life in grave danger every day.
Religion and church life is on the decline in America. Christians in other parts of the world are being persecuted for their faith to the point of death. Here in America, the Christian values, that this nation was founded upon, are under attack.
Our scripture for today was written in the first century A.D. but yet it reads like the daily newspaper of today in America. The answer for our nation will not be found in political or financial proposals.
The answer is mentioned in our scripture for the day; we, as Christians, must hold forth the Word of God more than ever and continue to let the light of Jesus Christ shine through us.
Be encouraged today in knowing that God is in control even in the midst of all the darkness that seems to be in control of this world today. Continue to hold the Word of God up to the darkness and continue to let your light shine bright so it will penetrate the current darkness.
