God at work among mankind.
His faithful servant writing His Words.
Sending to us so that we could see.
The church forming among mankind.
No strong men. No wealth. Only Jesus.
Today we have church strong men.
Many churches have great wealth.
But we’ve lost two generations of children.
Today the world is as lost as can be.
The majority of people are dying and going to Hades.
They never heard the Gospel.
The church stood by while they were destroyed.
Men cried out for justice, while denying justice to the needy.
The arms race created evil weapons. Countries killed each other.
The church runs for public office, seeking to appease the Lost.
The Gospel is declared ineffective.
Children desert their parents.
Society says good is evil and evil good.
The church winks an eye, ignoring God and God’s Word.
Jesus is abandoned for a social word.
The lost are abandoned.
Everyone is hurting and ignoring Jesus.
Pain and evil explode and still Jesus is ignored.
Seek the Lord and His way first.
Bend the knee to Jesus and evil with flee.
You may lose your physical life proclaiming the Gospel.
Your sacrifice, as Acts notes,
Will serve as a marker to guide people to Jesus.
Surrender, obey, serve and sacrifice and you will lead many to Christ.
Jesus is Lord. People need Him. This is how you lead people to Jesus.
