How Long Oh Lord?
We who follow Jesus have a promise and a future hope – that the ways of this world will fall. We are bombarded by the news these days about wars, rumors of wars, hostages and rampant anti-Semitism – can we even dare to imagine a time of peace and hope?...
It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and it shall be lifted up above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it, and many nations shall come, and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He shall judge between many peoples, and shall decide disputes for strong nations far away; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore; but they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid, for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken. (Micah 4:1-4, ESV)
...It is in the dark days such as these that we must cling to the promises of God, find shelter under His protective wing, and pray, pray some more AND keep on praying.
I believe there is no better time to bring the Gospel to the lost than right now.
People are hurting, looking for hope and peace and watching the turmoil unfold from afar while wondering can this happen in my community?
Wherever you go, whoever you meet, ask the Lord for courage to invite people into a personal evangelistic dialogue about the savior of the world.
How? Just ask a simple question and see where the conversation goes. The question: “WHAT DO YOU THINK OF JESUS?”
