Remaining Silent: In Perilous Times


In the days when I was a police officer in Canada, the law was that it was a crime to do something that would cause harm to another person, but neglecting to do something that resulted in another person’s harm was equally criminal. Take a moment to think about that in light of the numbers of people in our generation who are about to perish without God. So many are living under the illusion that mankind can pursue his own objectives, follow his own reasoning, and still manage to arrive at some utopian end. Yet, in reality, the end that awaits those who choose to live without God is one of such terror that our minds cannot even begin to comprehend it.

You and I are aware of the reality of heaven and hell, and we also know that in between the two stands a Savior. We know the truth because the truth has set us free. The truth has made us into new creations and continues to usher us into greater measures of strength and freedom every day as we sincerely follow Christ. We do not hold to a mere concept about God, we have the living reality of God inside of us.

And so the question arises: Why is it that we, knowing the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, so often remain silent?

  1. Could our silence be due to the spirit of slumber that has seemingly engulfed the church of today to the point that we are neither hot or cold? I dare say that complacency has quenched the fires of true revival and the end result is that the church has largely been silenced.

    • Ron, i believe you’re correct. There is a spirit of slumber resting upon many of God’s children, resulting in lukewarmness. The causes im sure are many but i believe one is due to weariness on our part.

      Our enemy has indeed been working hard to wear out the children of God.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
