Jesus is the only solution!
By Deborah E. David
We are in serious trouble right now. Our enemy’s ultimate strategy of divide and conquer is working as never before. Our children are currently being encouraged to disrespect authority and act on their feelings of rage and hatred. They are being encouraged to see sex as a recreational activity and see violence as a possible solution to every problem. We are currently divided along racial, political, and socio-economic lines. We are facing the battle of the sexes, the battle of the races, and the battle of political parties. We no longer know our neighbors or trust our schools and courts. Many of our families and communities are falling apart. We need change, and we need it quickly!
Many of us have been searching for answers in the wrong places. We have turned to politicians to find more empty promises. We have turned to the media to find more hopelessness and division. We have turned to courts and judges only to find that their decisions are only as good as their belief system. Many others have turned to self-help strategies when the only way out of this situation is to get God’s help.
The truth is that there is only one source of wisdom and love. His name is Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6, NKJV). This statement is either true or false. If it is true, then the following facts are true as well:
- Only His way will work. Our way will not.
- Only His truth counts. Our opinions are worthless.
- Only He can bring a spiritually dead nation back to life. Our self-help remedies will fail.
We are at a crossroads. It is either going to be our revival or our judgment. The choice is ours.
