The Western World is facing both a sobering and frightening return to paganism.
We once had consciences that were awake to God’s truth, leading us to common sense, wise living, and the blessings of faith and freedom in society and our own personal lives.
All that is up for grabs in the 2020’s because we’re turning away from God.
How do we get back?
I hope you have a blessed Holy Week celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus. He revealed God’s heart of love on the Cross and provided a way to be reconciled to Him.
The last few weeks we’ve discussed four qualities essential for achieving our God-given destinies. They are needed to traverse the pains and tribulations of the 21st century. Number five brings them all together.
In 2 Peter 1:6, Peter encourages us, “And to your perseverance, add godliness.”
What is the key to becoming a godly person?
Some years ago, I took my car to be serviced at a local dealership. While waiting, I picked up a magazine that advertised an interview with George Verwer, the founder of Operation Mobilization. I had visited one of their mercy ships (the MV Doulos) and had great respect for OM’s work.
The interviewer got right to the point: “Mr. Verwer, what is the greatest need in the world today?”
I paused. Good question. How would I answer it? Certainly, there were many needs in the world.
Verwer didn’t hesitate: “The greatest need in the world today is spiritual revival in the Church.”
I agree. And there’s one huge key to that awakening.
