Being a Christian today is becoming extremely hard as each day goes by. One must be honest within themself and make the necessary adjustments to the dilemmas of Today’s Christendom. One major weapon of distraction today is the device we are holding in our hands right now.
Its power of distraction and destruction is far-reaching. It has not only destroyed the fabric of many relationships among us as humans, but it even threatens that which we have or seek to have with God. The world of social media is an all-encompassing web of gossip, trends, entertainment, dark proclivities among a host of other mind-swaying activities.
Funnily, the phone can be used for great good yet, more often than so; it is the tool that is crippling churches as members dwindle from distracted yet present, to indulging and absent. It’s honestly like I am watching the destruction of the world in slow motion and feel a strong sense of powerlessness in stopping it.
That which is in the hand has now replaced He who is within our heart; that which has no life is an idol now worshipped even among His stalwarts.
I pray today for a love unfiltered, undiluted, unlimited, unhinged, uncompromising and unimaginable between our selves and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I pray for a love that cannot be tampered with, that shall not be swayed, but will be laser-focused in its motives, its purpose and the process required to remain effective.
Let us seek the Lord for His tremendous grace that makes our weaknesses, strengths; even now in Jesus’ Name. AMEN!!!
