We live in a world that is constantly lying to us — lying about success, gender, Covid, money, relationships, etc.
Know the truth:
Ephesians 5:16 (NIV):making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.V17 (NLT): Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.We must learn and know the truth, and that is found only in God’s word (absolute truth). Why? Because the days we are living in are evil. Evil is doing what God’s word teaches us not to do or not doing what God’s word teaches and instructs us to do.
Most people in the world do not honor God; most politicians do not honor God; most leaders in our world today do not honor God. Our days are filled with difficulty. We must keep our standards high, act wisely, and do good whenever we can. We must make the most of each and every opportunity to do good and to live for Christ.
Take a stand:
We must take a stand against the evil. There is a movement to herd all of us towards communism and socialism, and if the Church doesn’t recognize the evil of it and take a stand, it will overtake us. Remember: communism, socialism, and true Christianity cannot coexist.
Let’s be strong.
Just a thought,
