Do you get upset when you watch the news? How about when you scroll through FaceBook and see all the pettiness and hate? Are you fed up with all the blatant sin on TV, and the weakening of the Church in America? Many people pray, “Come back, Lord! There is no hope for us.”
But then I hear what Jacob said to his sons who were wringing their hands over the severity of the famine in the land, and I know God is saying the same to us today:
Why do you just keep looking at each other?… GO… (42:1)
God has not left us without hope. Are you just going to stand there? Or are you going to answer His call to go make disciples, to let your light shine in the darkness, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with people for whom He died?
Sure, things are bad. Sin is rampant. Satan is on a roll. But standing around and moaning about it isn’t going to change a thing.
