Sometimes in this old world, we may begin to sense that we are being overwhelmed and that we are helpless in our attempt to call men back to God and to his etemal will. Let me encourage all of us to remember some basic truths that should motivate us:
God is still God! He has not left us, He has not changed! His blessings, expectations, promises and warnings remain ﬁrm.
It is not our job to force people to accept the truth, but, rather, it is our task to keep preaching the truth. The only way that truth is ineffective is if we allow the world to silence the voice of righteousness, or we begin to timidly question it. God demands loving but fearless messengers.
Make up your mind that no matter what the world does, you will not compromise with evil. Light dispels darkness. The only way darkness dominates is when we hide our lights. Remember! The Bible still says, “go out from their midst, and be separate says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you” (2 Cor. 6:17).
