Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing, and perfect will.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
In Alcoholics Anonymous, one of the first steps they tell you on the road to recovery, is to realize you have a problem, accept that, and move forward.
Question for today: How do we as Christians, come to the realization that there is a problem in the world, and it is up to us to change the problem?
This world we live in is under attack, attack from the Devil…Satan… He is hitting us with all kinds of chaos, hate, self-pity, self-worth, and animosity toward our fellow man.
There is a lot of talk today about racism, people are self-assessing themselves to see if they are racist (which is good start)!!!! What I see is…. all people are racist!! Racism is not limited to one race…… I heard a statement on the radio yesterday that said (and I am paraphrasing) Blacks cannot be considered racist—racism is based on what the whites have done to others, not what blacks have done to others!!! Think about this statement! This shows that Satan is alive and well.
Remember, the first step to recovery as a nation is to realize that we have a problem to recover from!! The scripture above tells us how to recover from that problem……study these scriptures and learn from them!!!!
We as a people, as a nation, as Americans, are at war…. We are at war with Satan!!! Christians, we are the front line!! We need to stand fast, hold the line, and push back on Satan. We do not need to conform to the patterns of this world…we need to REPENT and move forward—change!!
Go to Church this weekend if you can…. worship with fellow Christians, (no matter what color—it really does not matter). If you cannot go to Church, join in a unified prayer for God to heal this country we live in, pray for whatever is pure, lovely, and admirable. Pray for anything that is excellent and praiseworthy!!
Be safe from this pandemic, be safe from this unrest, and God Bless
