…dear friends, carefully build yourselves up on this most holy faith by praying in the Holy Spirit, staying right at the center of God’s love, keeping your arms open and outstretched, ready for the mercy of our Master, Jesus Christ. This is the unending life, the real life!” Jude 20 The Message
For such a time as this, a time when the biggest tsunami is the tsunami of the soul—either the soul of man is overwhelmed by fear or overcome by faith. Either way it is what we hear that makes the difference.
The soul that trusts in God knows the road to take, the track to run, the lane to walk and the voice to hear. The “church” has opened the flood gates to the wisdom of the world, and the evil of our times has brought us to the crossroads. There is a decision to make and Solomon reminds us there is nothing new under the sun. The words of Mark are ringing loud and clear: ”…whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it” (Mark 8:35).
Every generation has its moment. There is a church within the church praying, prepared, purposed and empowered for such a time as this. Let the sound ring out. ”Choose you this day whom you will serve” (Joshua 24:15). From garden to glory echoes the Amen: “When you stand at the crossroads choose the old ways where the good way is!” (Jeremiah 6:16). The Sabbath Prayer group meets tonight. Send us your prayer requests. Together we can make a difference.
