Dear children of the world:
So much has gone on in our world in the last six months. Almost 400,000 deaths from a malicious virus that never should have been, the global economy is tanking, the news is terrifying, it’s getting worse. In the U.S., terrible things have happened to people, the political climate is inciting anything but peace, there is a divide that seems insurmountable.
Just know: it’s not supposed to be like this. It was never supposed to be like this.
There’s a way out. It will take intent, courage, passion, a coming together in a way that we should have been doing all along. It will take feeding hungry people, ministering to the poor, taking care of those who have lost, loving our neighbors, praying for our enemies, and bringing the message of unity that is the Gospel — the good news — the fulfillment of God’s entire plan for ALL of humanity in the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Yeshua Messiah. It will take embracing that Gospel, living it, being it, actually walking it on this earth so that the fruit of it — love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-control — is what we exude as a society. And in turn, that will shake the world. And it’s the ONLY thing that will change it.
Amen. The world is not supposed to be like this. I pray we all will show God’s love to each other.
