‘God’s Children Are Crying …
‘I pray, but nothing changes. I read my bible, but I am not comforted. If God is real, why do I feel so empty inside? And, if God loves me, why do I feel so alone?’
These are the silent cries of God’s children. Many leave church in the same condition in which they came: broken, weary, lonely, and blind to their purpose for living. They come seeking relief from their spiritual ailments. They don’t understand that the solutions they seek require their personal and active participation.
God still answers sincere prayer, heals the wounded, and puts lives back together. Things change, people change, but the Word of God remains sound and unchangeable in its instruction for everyday Christian living. It is we who forget that God is a Holy God who commands His children, and those who seek Him, to develop Christ-like character, behavior and standards of living. Holy is as Holy does … “Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” [1 Peter 1:16]
Forget the old clichés: Come as you are; God knows my heart; Nobody’s perfect. To experience the fullness of Christ working in our lives, we must renew our pursuit of child-like faith. We must surrender all and desperately say … My Soul Cries … Holy, Holy, Holy.
