This world absolutely needs Christ. No amount of man-made ideas, concepts and theories can solve the sin and depravity in this world. No amount of rules, restrictions, laws, legislation or ideologies can overcome the injustice and hatred in this world.
These problems with terrorism and police shootings come as a result of man’s sinful heart. That is the true source of the problem.
We need to turn to God as the source for truth, purpose and reason. We need to repent before God and cry out for mercy.
All other attempts in our own strength are futile, vain, empty and worthless. That is why we see such devastation in our world today because people have rejected God, they have made up their own rules and standards. They have hewed out their own cisterns… broken cisterns that can hold no water.
Man making up his own rules and standards will always inevitably result in failure, anarchy, bitterness, disappointment and tragedy. Proverbs 14:12 says “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Without Christ, we are hopeless… HOPELESS! We are like unanchored ships in the harbour floating to and fro going in no particular direction.
We need to restore that broken relationship with a personal infinite God… a God who sees and hears… a God who keeps His word… a God who is forgiving, loving, merciful and gracious… a God who never ever changes.
My prayer is that God would have mercy on this world. Our nation needs to come before God in repentance and humility. Only then will we find true peace, hope and tranquility. Only then will we come to that place of true freedom, justice and harmony for all.
