20/20 vision

 So, here we are. It looks bleak when you put it all in one place. Yet, Mad Christians who have tuned in to the Saturday Morning Chill will have heard Rev Fisk express gratitude for the events of 2020. The tide from this wave of insanity is receding and what has been exposed is hard to miss. The agendas of wicked men are easier to see. The wake-up call has been clarion. The path ahead of us is clearer and we are sober.

How much has this year revealed the things we have taken for granted? Isn’t it clear how far has the white noise invaded our thinking and the what our children are learning? How much time did we spend on things that don’t matter? How much more do we value meeting together? Was the Supper ever so precious?
 
We are not giving up. We are paid for and immortal, laboring as did the saints who went before us. The apostle Paul wrote of his own work: “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.” 

Our great King has not be sleeping, but is working his purposes out in the world. While the enemies of Christ seek to kill and destroy, we stand for family, for building communities that support life and freedom. To paraphrase a certain politician, we need to “build back better.” As the Mad Christian has challenged, what will we” put back?”
