More Thoughts on Ferguson, MO.

I’M ENCOURAGED, because ultimately the problem is not a SKIN problem, it is a SIN problem. SIN is the reason we rebel against authority. SIN is the reason we abuse our authority. SIN is the reason we are racist, prejudiced and lie to cover for our own. SIN is the reason we riot, loot and burn. BUT I’M ENCOURAGED because God has provided a solution for sin through the his son Jesus and with it, a transformed heart and mind. One that’s capable of looking past the outward and seeing what’s truly important in every human being. The cure for the Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Eric Garner tragedies is not education or exposure. It’s the Gospel. So, finally, I’M ENCOURAGED because the Gospel gives mankind hope.

Running on Empty

It’s been a long time, a long hard slog, and we feel discouraged. We know God has helped us. We know He has seen us through so far… but will it ever end? Will we be hiding in the wilderness forever?? Will our finances ever get straightened out? Will our health, or the health of a loved one, ever get better??
