Another year has passed into history, the lessons it has left behind leaves us reeling from the chaos we experienced. Sickness, death, hatred, financial ruin, business failures, and separation from each other because of political views. We have lost sight of who we are, who created us, and why we were created. It is said we must remember the mistakes of the past and learn from them to prevent repeating them in the future.
It’s unfortunate that it seem every generation continues to fight the same evils of the generation before them. What are we not learning? Why do we continue to make the same mistakes as our fore fathers? What is the key to change? Most of us would consider themselves as good people, we try to do what we think is right, at least most of the time. Yet, the enemy of mankind is relentless; he does everything in his power to cause pain and suffering upon humanity.
Many of us become willing partners with him in his quest to destroy that which is good and loving. They are motivated by greed, power, and control over others. Their hearts have grown cold and dark with the evils of this world. The question now becomes, how do we move forward? We have been graced with the beginning of a new year, new opportunities, and a renewed challenge to create a better world. It is our duty to resolve the problems the enemy of man has set before us.
We are not in this battle alone, we have a mighty warrior at our disposal; He is very familiar with this enemy and how he works his deceptions. Only when we have hearts of love will we be able to stand in the time of conflict. Love will dispel anger, love will sacrifice for others, love will comfort and bring peace. Jesus, our mighty warrior is seeking hearts to transform, to prepare them to over come the wiles of the enemy. Jesus is the answer, love is the key to make changes that can break the generational curse of mankind’s greatest enemy.
Yielding our will to the will of the Creator can strengthen us in the quest to make changes for future generations. To provide for the least of these, to eradicate hate from our world, to treat others as we wish to be treated and to forgive each other. We must beat our swords into ploughshares and our spears into pruning hooks, nations should not lift up sword against nation; neither shall they learn war anymore. Moving forward we can leave a better world for the generations to come.
A world where love reigns and Jesus the Christ is king, If you are not in the battle against the enemy; you have a new opportunity to make a choice. Choose wisely, your future depends on the decision you make; moving forward.
