My heart breaks when I look at the chaos and the confusion our world is in today. How in need we are of God. Man cannot fix man. Man cannot help man. There is a rise of blatant injustice and an increasing hatred for what is pure, noble and true. There is brokenness everywhere. There is no political solution we can come up with on our own to fix a broken and dying world. How in need we are for the return of Jesus. Our world is spinning out of control, and we can never fix it on our own because the root of most of what is going on today is the darkness of the human heart. How in need we are of the return of Jesus to make the wrong things right. We need His government and His rule because He alone is the perfect King. His judgements alone are true, perfect and good.
Jesus come back. Come back and help the widow, the orphan… the little girl who is being raped every day by man after man after man. Come back and help the needy, the oppressed and the defenseless. Come back and set the captives free. Come back and give us beauty for our ashes. Come back Lord. Come back with Your justice and Your righteousness. Come back with Your perfect judgements. We need You. Mankind needs You. We are dead and we are lost without You.
“I will not leave you orphans, I will come to you.” (John 14:18)
This is Your promise. Do not leave us as orphans Jesus. Come to us. You are our only hope.
