And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Luke 21:25-27
Perhaps you may have noticed that people are overwhelmed by situations and sins close to home and far off; such as war, crime, disasters, epidemies, licentiousness and addiction, to name a few. Far more information is reaching the homes than some 100 years ago or even 50 years ago, and far more families are involved in the above mentioned situations and sins.
Children don't play around as they used to in my time. They are occupied with internet cruelsome games, facebook "friendships", drugs and addiction ect. Their minds and thoughts are overloaded with the things they shouldn't even know or participate in. The green grass will dry up and wither, is what God's word speaks off. Do you see the picture?
To be occupied by the evil things of this world and its lust puts fear in the hearts and souls of people of all ages. They are cornered, tied down, bound by the things they serve. They are following the wrong pattern instead of seeking God's way of salvation and deliverance.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:30,31
Save some of that "green grass" our youth, by presenting them the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit. Show them the "Way" by living a holy life, dedicated unto God. Be an godly example to them that walk in darkness, so they may see a glimps of the love of God through our lives. Therefore let Christ be in you, for His glory and the furtherance of his kingdom.
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. Peter 1:23,24,25a
Let your light so shine...
In the service of the Master,
