Everywhere I Look, Love has Grown Cold

August 29, 2008

Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Divorces, profaning the most Holy of human loves

Pornography, profaning the most Holy of human desires

Infidelity, profaning the most Holy of human unions

Factions at work, factions at Church, bickering and gossiping

Cursing on the roads, cursing on the television, cursing at each other

Ambitious leaders, authoritarian and determined

Impersonal economic and political systems

Digital voices on the phone when we need human care

Customer service – who is the customer and where is the service?  Minimal effort is the rule

Foul-mouthed, violent heroes

Teenage rebellion run amuck, institutionalized in emergent gatherings

Post-modern and post-love, where iniquity abounds

Children are in our way, and the silvery head is despised

The individualist must keep his silence or be shunned – His ideas are a threat to the progress of the collective good

We have become a bickering, violent people

The love of sin and the love of God and our neighbors cannot thrive together      

O God, Our Father, we plead – pour out your Spirit upon our nation and bring real revival to this world.  In Jesus Name, Amen.
