2008 End of a Great Year

We have seen a number of things happen in our world as the 21st Century continues to progress. And what word has been on my heart as the year winds down?

I have the feeling that the church needs to wake up. There are things we have gotten preoccupied with:

  • Building big churches
  • Pursuing political agendas
  • Materialism
And yet, there are some vital things that we have forgotten:
  • Justice
  • Mercy
  • Walking humbly before our God
I read that the attacks of 9/11 were a wakeup call... and yet the church continues snoozing. Now, the world is on the brink of economic collapse as entire industries go bankrupt. And all we hear from the churches is the sawing of logs.

I hope that we can wake up during 2009 and pray for the peace of Jerusalem... pray for laborers to go out to the harvest... pray that Jesus will come quickly.
