The World We Live In

Have you ever thought about the world that we live in today? It is full of injustice, deceit, violence, suffering, hatred, and death.

Many people believe that this is the world's natural condition because of the cruel nature of natural selection. In order for evolution to occur, things must die. This philosophy of cruelty has become a part of our daily thought patterns.

Regardless of our beliefs, humanity seems to also believe that their is a way to escape the sadness of nature's brutality. We do so through drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, entertainment, and thrill-seeking. No matter how hard we try our satisfaction lasts for mere moments before we realize our emptiness, once again.

The reality is that we are living in a broken world. This might sound like bad news, but it is actually the basis for the best news you could ever possibly hear. If the world we live in is broken, that means that it can be fixed. The idea that the universe is nothing more than a series of cruel accidents melts away into beautiful reality that all things were designed with a purpose. The notion that only the strong should survive is surpassed by the reality that the strong were meant to care for the weak. The belief that cruelty is the driving force of progress is discarded for the reality that love conquers all.

Jesus is the answer to your feelings of emptiness. All else fails to satisfy, but Jesus has promised to be with us forever. Put Him as your first priority and you will be able to bring healing to a broken world.
