The brink? Unfortunately, times have changed as the America we live in today teeters on the brink of moral destruction. It hasn’t always been that way, though. When was the last time that you saw the “flames of righteousness” leaping from the pulpit of your church?
Think about it. In too many American churches today the flame has dulled to a flicker. Where is the zeal to be a good people in a good nation? It was there in in times past. But, there was something different then. Americans believed that good behavior was essential in a good society and bad behavior must not be tolerated.
God’s Word tells us: I myself am convinced, my brothers and sisters, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with knowledge and competent to instruct one another. (Romans 15:14).
All too often the message today is one of tolerance despite the behavior. How can a nation remain good when it espouses what is bad? Sadly, unless we as a people raise the alarm, what once was a consuming fire may soon become only a smoldering wick.
“I pray today in Jesus name that each of us make it our task to make sure we confuse tolerance with proffering evil. When we see bad things happening, Lord we pray You will move us to cry out, not wimp out.” Amen!
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
