THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Back in the 1940's, at "family time" one night, Mom and Dad gathered
their six boys around the table to look at family pictures.
They had fun remembering and laughing.
Those were the days of "hand-me-downs."
Then there was a picture of the five oldest brothers together.
The three-year-old let out a "HEY!"
And then he said, "Those guys are wearing MY clothes!"
18 So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call
upon thy name.
19 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine;
and we shall be saved.
Light from the Word.
In years past, people lived miles from one another,
walked or rode horses and wagons.
But they KNEW their neighbors.
Today, we drive home into our self-enclosed garages, and
don't even know the neighbors next door!
In years past, people in an area would travel miles each Sunday
to attend church.
God was the center of lives and society.
Today, those living closest to the perimeter of the church are
the ones who never attend.
It seems we have alienated ourselves by our own seclusion.
In years past, churches were a "help-center" for the hurting,
and an "outreach-center" for the lost.
Today, most churches are just social clubs for the religious,
and notably unconcerned about the hurting and the lost.
Society is not progressing, it is regressing!
We need to call for God to "quicken" us!
We need REVIVAL in those who call themselves Christians!
The ONLY hope for our nation is Christians in genuine brokenness,
praying for revival of God's Word and Work!
