We are certainly living in very challenging times. Covid-19 and its restrictions, Black lives matter, peaceful and violent protests, defund the police, the cancel culture, pro- life vs pro- choice, capitalism vs. socialism, to kneel or to stand for the national anthem, and the list goes on. It is more than the average person is able to process.

Some of us have very strong opinions on all of these issues, others have an opinion on some of these issues and some don’t care one way or another, they are just trying to live life and pay their bills

I came to age in the sixties. Hippies, Haight and Ashbury, Vietnam and the protests it sparked, Kent State, Watergate, double digit inflation etc. Culture was in turmoil then just like it is today, except today is like the sixties on steroids. It doesn’t take much for the average person to see that this world is spiraling out of control. People are fearful and rightfully so, these are scary times.

What can we do as the church to quell the fear and bring reason back to the table? (1) Realize that we were not left unprepared for these times. Jesus told us that troubling times would come, but that we weren’t to be fearful but that, in Him, we may have peace. (John 16:33) Key in on the “in Him” part of this scripture. Apart from a living and active relationship with Jesus we will fall prey to the same fear that those void of such a relationship with Him have and then we are no use to anyone. Also, now is the time for the Body of Christ to stand up for right and stand against what’s wrong as identified in the Word of God.

William Penn said “Right is always right no matter who is against it and wrong is always wrong no matter who is for it.” So true! Finally I want to encourage the men reading this. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 says “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, ACT LIKE MEN, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” This scripture speaks for itself. Were are the Men?
