While many people claim to know what the future holds, today’s devotional tells us that we have a role to play in that future and if we are unfaithful our future is slavery. Which shall it be? God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
II Timothy 4:1-2 (ESV)
1 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: 2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.
“Where is the clear voice speaking to the crucial issues of the day with distinctively biblical, Christian answers? With tears we must say it is not there and that a large segment of the evangelical world has become seduced by the world spirit of this present age. And more than this, we can expect the future to be a further disaster if the evangelical world does not take a stand for biblical truth and morality in the full spectrum of life. For the evangelical accommodation to the world of our age represents the removal of the last barrier against the breakdown of our culture. And with the final removal of this barrier will come social chaos and the rise of authoritarianism in some form to restore social order.” [Francis A. Schaeffer, “The Great Evangelical Disaster,” The Works of Francis Schaeffer IV, (Westchester, IL: Crossway Books, 1982), p. 401]
