GOD KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON. I’m not just talking about the things we see, the concerns we have, such as hate-driven division, violence, terrorism, and wars. God sees Bible-based faith on a steady decline. That may hardly seem to compare to our concerns, but consider: If people don’t care about what God says, then there’s no such thing as sin. If there’s no such thing as sin, what is the moral basis to even call any of the concerns above ‘wrong’? But more importantly, if people reject God’s Word and the concept of sin, they reject their need for a Savior. Who then can be saved?
GOD KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON – and He’s doing something about it. He always has been. "Is not my word like fire," declares the Lord, "and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?" (Jeremiah 23:29) God’s Word is still at work in this world, still wooing people with His love in this world of hate, still calling people to eternal life through faith in Jesus in this world of death. God’s Word is still at work to break through the stubbornness of selfish human hearts and to bring light and peace to broken hearts.
