God also gave them up...Rom. 1:24
A terrible fate...
How many times, in how many areas, does God give man up to the destruction of their sins?
How many times does He withold His hand and let man reap what he has sown?
This time, this day of ours, is not the same as other times.
Christian values, and simple moral values, are bleeding out in the streets of our cities.
Today there is a total unawareness of what surrounds us.
Around our world everything human is being shredded, and we are living in the midst of the complacency of obliviousness.
As my father used to say, "when are we going to get serious about being serious?"
Is it perhaps because we have never really caught a glimpse of the true nature of the kingdom of God?
Is it that we have heard the words but never felt the passion?
...never felt the force that is always driving things forward toward the day of His appearing?
...never sensed the dimension of Reality?
Isaiah says, "we all do fade as a leaf...our iniquities like the wind have taken us away...there is none that stirreth up himself to take hold of Thee."
Can we "take hold" for a lost generation, for a lost world, for our children and our children's children?
