If you’re like me, you may find yourself repeatedly asking the question “What is going on? Has this world gone crazy!”

No, actually the world has BEEN crazy. Since the fall. We may not have been exposed to all the ways the world has gone off the deep end. But it’s been there all along. I believe in voting and good citizenship and I support constitutional conservative candidates–but government or political parties will not have the answer. The Gospel is the only answer. The transforming power of Christ is the only answer. As Christians, we must refuse to lose hope in what appears to be madness. We know how it all ends. Jesus and His followers win! We’re not sure when it will all be over but it could be soon and very soon. But right now… Today… it’s our turn to be being filled with the Holy Spirit, to press forward and take our turn on the battlefield. To keep loving God, loving people and sharing the Good News of the Gospel every time we have the opportunity. And remember this…

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.” Hebrews 12:1-3
