We have at Ngaire Ave just completed a series through the book of Judges entitled: "Faith in a Faithless World". This was a series that may have surprised many people as they came face to face with the realization that the grim world depicted in Judges is the world that we are fast heading into here in NZ. The fact is, as the underlying premise of Judges states, that when we deny the sovereignty of God as King, then anything goes. The call of society rings out, "Do whatever you like, you have your rights". Or as the Bible puts it. "Everyone will do what they see fit, what they think is right in their own eyes". This may sound appealing at first but in reality it leads to totally disastrous consequences.
How do we navigate our way through the thickening fog of sin in NZ society? We've got to keep our eyes on Jesus, the light of the world, the One who is the way, the truth, and the life, and through whom is access to God the Father. It is Jesus who will come again one day as the King of kings and Lord of lords. It will be before him that every knee will bow. Why not bow the knee before him today; acknowledging him as your Lord and Saviour?
