Oh, how complacent we are
Ever enjoying but never remembering others in need.
Oh, how deceived we are
Ever learning but never coming to the knowledge of truth.
Oh, how foolish we are
Ever seeking but never discovering the fear of the Lord
Oh, how proud we are
Ever boasting but never recognizing the Creator of all
It makes me sad that there are still so many people without Christ. This becomes especially noticeable during the Christmas holidays, where fewer and fewer understand the true meaning of the season. They think that it has more to do with the accumulation of gifts or holiday cheer than reverent worship of the King who came wrapped in swaddling clothes.
As the holiday season approaches, and the possibility of spending time with lost family and friends, let us remember to pray for opportunities and boldness to point them to Christ. He is their only source for true hope and peace.
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.“
Romans 1:20, 21
