Welcome to the world today…..
II Timothy 3: 1-4
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
For many years I’ve preached and taught and even heard many Christian leaders expound that we are living in the last days. This is the world we are living in today explained in these few lines.
We live in a world where sex is free, and love is expensive. Where losing a phone is more painful than losing your virginity.
Where modernization means nudity, profanity, and if you don’t drink/smoke dope you’re out of fashion/style. Where boys stay boys and never want to become men, and girls become men to rule over them.
A world where sexuality is determined by your emotions and psych and not biology. Where the family unit has been decimated by promiscuity and fatherlessness.
A world where the bathrooms have become photography studios. Where pizza delivery is faster than the emergency response. Where people fear the thieves and the terrorists more than God. Where Worshipping God is difficult and serving him is even tougher.
Where disagreement is deemed as hate. Where civility has succumbed to tolerance. Where the ladies fear pregnancy more than HIV., and babies are murdered even after they are born.
Where perspectives, possessions and clothes decide the value of a person. Where money is more important than family and God. Where children are ready to leave their families for their love of the moment, rebellion and spite. Where the marriage covenant is no longer sacred or taken seriously.
Where it’s easier to playhouse than to build a home. Where jumping from partner to partner for sex or attention is easier than waiting for the right partner for life.
Where love is a game and evil no longer exists. Where left is right and right is wrong. Where the blood of Christ and the cross are no longer preached.
Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of many will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
There’s still hope in Jesus, it’s not too late! He came that you might have life and that more abundantly. We can be the light in the midst of darkness and hope and love that will cast out all fear.
There is an escape from the lies and peril of this world through the peace of Christ. Look to him today and trust him to be you Lord and Savior. Not just your savior but Lord of your life.
Turn it over to him. His peace passes all understanding.
