Below is the daily Bible reading I am doing for West Side Church of Christ. Feel free to follow along.
In the past 2,000 years I believe the church has had it made. Not since the beginning days of the church has the church had to work so hard for evangelism. Not since the beginning days of the church has the church not been the norm in society. Over the last 50 years the tides have begun to shift in our culture and around the world. The church is no longer the dominating prescience it once was in society.
I believe today we are living in Biblical times. The sins our world struggles with are very close to those described in the histories of the Corinthians and other people. I believe we will soon be praying prayers much like David did in his Psalms. David’s people were constantly being oppressed by outside forces. Sometimes the oppression came from within his own boarders.
Today’s readings (Psalms 11 & 12) might be something we find ourselves lifting up to God from time to time. As you read the Old Testament and New Testament do you find our times are much like those described by the authors? I believe on close examination you will.
