Hope and Change Begin With You
It’s easy to get discouraged, frustrated, and overwhelmed if you’re someone who endeavors to stay current on the affairs of our world. This is especially true if you’re a Christian.
Sometimes it can seem as if evil is winning.
I’ve heard more than a few Christians wonder if there’s any hope left for humanity.
I’ve also had them ask me what they can do to change the tide of wickedness that is consuming so many (inside and outside the church).
Here’s my answer:
“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chron 7:14 NIV
The steps for any society to turn from moral decline are found in this verse.
If Christians want to change the world, they must follow God’s Word.
Individual Christians must:
- Be Humble. Acknowledge our need of God more than our need to satisfy our flesh and trust in what we understand.
- Pray. Basically, prayer is communicating with God. Talking to Him as we would anyone. If this is difficult, ask God for help.
- Seek God. We seek Him by communicating with Him (prayer). This isn’t just asking God for something, but LISTENING to what He has to say. We seek Him by reading His Word. Worshiping Him in all aspects of our lives. Realizing He is everywhere, in all things, and wants to be in a RELATIONSHIP with us. Seek God as we would the person we love most—with everything we have. All our time, energy, talents, heart and so on.
- Turn from the things of this world that consume us and define who we are and what we trust. The things that keep us from seeking God.
My book, The Precipice: When Everything We Know Ends, is geared toward alerting Christians of their need to embrace God NOW.
Regardless if you’re someone who stays up-to-date with Modern Events or barely listen to more than the weather, this book is for you.
Despite if you believe God’s Word is relevant to Politics and Current Events or you think they are as diverse as oil and water, this book is for you.
The Precipice is for anyone who calls themselves Christian. It’s for anyone who dares to believe there’s more to life than simply existing.
God longs for His children to be lights in this dark world.
But in order to fully shine, we must be aware of what the darkness truly is.
My book will challenge you to look at the world through the eyes of Christ and pursue Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.
Even if you don’t read my book, read God’s. His Word (BIBLE) has the power to change your life.
