The Church must remain steadfast

Decades of "everyone doing what is right in their own eyes" is coming home to roost. 

The deepening godlessness of America is causing the multiplication of all sorts of wickedness. In preparation for whatever is coming, the Church must remain steadfast in faithfulness to Christ, His Word, and gospel expressions of His love to others. 

Either God will give influence to His people and stem the current of a debauched culture or He will let things continue to crumble. Then, from the rubble of America's broken idols, we hope for God to grant a purified Church the grace to be workers in the rebuilding of a renewed civilization for the glory of King Jesus.

When I look around with my own eyes, and I read, and I watch different pieces of media, I end up hearing a small little voice in my head sing,

"My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus' name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand."

We the church need to see that all things of this world are but sand in the infinity that is time. The secular world is but trials for the chosen as we make our way down the path to the celestial city where our Savior reigns and welcomes us.

I have faced many a trial in this corporeal world, and I know there our many more to come. I have read the history of the church and know I have lived in a time where my trials are little more than inconveniences to the saints that proceeded me. But, through this all, again I say,

"On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand."

For through it all, Soli Deo gloria.
