Devotional - Friday, February 3, 2017 34/331

Today's Scripture: "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles." Ps 34:17

5680. A problem seldom looks like one until it is. JG


See it.

Simple pimples

Live it.

It's believed that 75 to 90 percent of those attending church and calling themselves a Christian are deceiving themselves (Mt. 7:21-23). The saddest part is that most church leaders feel the weight of the problem, if it even exists, is on the shoulders of the individual and the church has done no wrong and bears no responsibility. I'm not the first person to recognize something so onerous and obvious, but making such a statement and using Scripture to suggest a solution can really ruffle feathers. I've got several tee-shirts.

Being a singular voice of reason in a mob can be demoralizing if not down right dangerous. It's like a conservative individual showing up at a "protest" where everyone else is a "tolerant" liberal. Recently the mob destroys property, applies pepper spray to the face of anyone with a different opinion and then beats them unmercifully. Not to compare the average church to a mob, but the end result does make one wonder if it's a sign of coming attractions.

Pray it.

Expose and defeat anyone, God, who tries to make Your word accommodating.
