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!"

Ps 80:18-19
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, God was the CENTER of our society!
People would travel for miles just to attend church and
to worship our Lord Jesus.

Those people were "tuned in" to God's Holy Spirit.
As a result, they were inspired to learn from the Word
of God, and to evangelize others, bringing them to
know Christ as Lord.

Back then, Christians gave newer Christians real
spiritual "hand-me-downs" of genuine Bible study,
genuine prayer, and genuine evangelistic attitude!

Now we have MANY churches!
Yet, we have LITTLE evangelism!

As a result of that, the center of our society is SELF!
And, THAT is the greatest IDOL of all!

Let us plead with God to change US!
And, that He might change society THROUGH us!

Oh! That God's face might SHINE upon us again!

May our churches again become a "help-center"
for the hurting, and an "outreach-center" for the lost!
Let us cease to be a "social club" for religiosity, and
become again an inspiration for morality!

May we as Christians, give the world our
Holy Spirit inspired hand-me-downs!!

Love ya!
