Resurrection Out Of Contradiction
In this year of “resurrection out of contradiction,” I look at our nation’s situation and cannot ignore the need to take action and participate with God in this resurrection. Pinpointing contradictions is probably the first challenge. In the course of a day, we can hear a statement in passing that threatens our whole nation or run into the panic of a fast-moving virus or get caught up in economic predictions that smother hope or we might witness an incident that robs us of peace and security. The list is endless and unique to each of us, yet the bombardment is common to all of us. If we fail to disagree through word or deed when evil or malice is exposed, we tolerate a non-God influence in the atmosphere instead of taking it down.
