The world is a hot mess. The USA is a hot mess. Let’s see, just when I thought there was a light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel, it’s on a rampant surge in India. There’s finally some justice for George Floyd, but at least 6 more Black people have been killed by police. What is the remedy??

The world needs a GIANT intervention. I find myself crying out to the Lord with ever increasing frequency, how long? How long will we go on destroying each other? How long until this virus slithers back into the pit of hell?

The remedy? Jesus come back! In the meantime, we are the body of Christ, we are the Kingdom citizens on earth as in heaven. We know what God loves. He loves justice, mercy, humility. Let’s do these with passion. Let’s fight for the poor, the orphan, the widow, the foreigner, people of EVERY tribe, tongue, nation. If we don’t do it, who will?

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’”

Matthew 25:35-36

  1. The Bellamy Brothers wrote a thoughtful song
    that my heart, these days, cannot resist;
    it’s easy, you can sing along:
    “Jesus Is Coming, And Boy Is He Pissed.”
    We’ve messed up this world something strange,
    and make it way worse every day,
    and He will come to re-arrange
    the whole darn thing in His own way,
    and I kinda think He left a warning
    of which we should be quite aware,
    that bright hot market-morning
    in David’s City’s temple square
    when The Christ just let it rip
    and chased folks with a homemade whip.
