Talk vs. Action

Bible

In a decadent society the will to believe, to resist, to contend, to fight, to struggle, is gone. In place of this will to resist, there is the desire to conform, to drift, to follow, to yield, and to give up. This is what happened in Rome, but it also applies to us. The same conditions that prevailed in Rome prevail in our society. Before Rome fell, her standards were abandoned, the family disintegrated, divorce prevailed, immorality was rampant, and faith was at a low ebb. As Gibbon said, “There was much talk of religion, but few practiced it.”

Prayer for the day

May I be worthy to bear the name Christian, Lord Jesus.

    I pray that the Lord would have mercy on America for all of our sinfulness and immorality and for
    removing God from our country. History is repeating itself. Have mercy on us Lord, for we are a
    sinful nation.

    Beware, history can repeat itself. Similar things and even worse are happening today. However, it’s not too late for a spiritual revival if man’s heart focuses on the things of God.
