There isn’t a day that goes by, it seems, where I don’t hear or read something that makes my heart ache or my head want to explode. We are in a generation that is adrift. We are unmoored from the truth that is found in Jesus Christ. We have allowed all kinds of confusion to be peddled to us through the television shows we watch, the music we listen to, the news, and our government leaders. There is so much white noise in our lives that is trying to drown out the voice of the Holy Spirit. Have you ever heard a parent searching for their child who was momentarily lost in a store? Maybe that is some fractional understanding of the Lord’s love intensity as He calls our name.
Our generation so easily believes that somehow Oprah has found the guy (i.e. Eckhart Tolle) who has discovered the secret to the universe. But if we are really honest with ourselves we know that the bible holds the answers we are so desperately looking for in life. When the condition of your eternal soul is at stake, it might just be time to blow the dust off that bible and see how The Lord weighs in on such matters.
