It’s a different world than the one in which I grew up. I played cops and robbers, cowboys and Indians, and stayed out until dark, only checking in with my mom when I was hungry. I played with the Chapman kids and the Rayes kids, never carrying that we all had different skin colors. Sure, there were problems in 1960s America (anyone who lived through the 60s can list them), but nothing like the problems today.
The world in which my grandchildren are growing up is much more perverted by sin, much more distorted by man and much less loving. The reason why is that there are fewer men and women of God to intercede for our nation.
In October at ChristianHolinessDaily.com, we will be looking at the relationship between God and the nations of the world, and at how Christians may have hope that God is in control, even in a world that seems out of control.
Until then, we should be bold as lions, for we are on the side of right and righteousness. We are not part of the Willfully Blind; we are the Forgiven.
Go! Say to these people:
Keep listening, but do not understand;
keep looking, but do not perceive.
– Isaiah 6:9
