The world is in a mess. If you hadn't noticed, you must not be paying much attention. It's pretty frustrating.
But what's more frustrating to me is the cry from so many for the church to address this or that issue. Not in a biblical way, but in terms of bowing to this or that agenda. Certainly the church ought to be involved in our world, addressing genuine needs, calling out true injustice and immorality, etc.
Yet, we can't let that distract us from our central message, which is Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Because in the end, the cross is the answer for all those other problems. The only answer that can legitimately do anything about it all. Only changed hearts. Only through Christ.
Here's the message from this past Sunday addressing all this and much more as we looked at The Death of Jesus.
