"There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, yet it is not washed from its filthiness." - Proverbs 30 V12
"Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or laboured in vain." - Philippians 2 V14-16
When we look at our world today, it is indeed a sad scene. Wickedness is on the rise and men are wicked in every possible way of living. Sin has become a part of our world's lifestyle and there seems to be no reproach of sin among men. If there was ever a time the world needed to hear the gospel, it is the time we live in. As believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we are called to be the salt and light of this world, and just as a little salt over a wound causes unbearable irritation, so will be the Word of God. But there will be few who repent and turn to God, and for the sake of these few the gospel should be preached. Let us hold fast and continue to shine as lights in the world for the day of our Lord is fast approaching. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
