Revival of common sense

Friday, January 18, 2013

It is interesting, to say the least, the conversations that intrigue us today. Many people are swooned by the latest new twist concerning stories of the day. Notre Dame has a popular linebacker who was involved in some kind of love story that got out of hand -- turns out the LB did not have a dame after all ... just a hoax gone wrong. Liberal thinkers today suppose that they can stamp out evil bydealing with symptoms rather than real issues. It's like taking a Tylenol for kidney stones: It might help with the pain, but it won't address the real issue.

Lance Armstrong has now admitted to a doping scandal that has rocked the world of sports. No one was admitted to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown this year because the "steroid era" guys are now eligible as far as time is concerned -- and they flunked out again.

Interesting, somehow we have decided as a society that we can have our cake and eat it too. We think that we will never have to pay for our selfish/sinful ways. A revival of common sense will have to take place before we can have a real revival -- period.

So the question is this: Can a person live a holy life in 2013? Can a person live a life that is pleasing to God every day?

This Sunday at the Parkway Church we will examine what it means to be saved and what it means to be entirely sanctified. The following Sunday we will look at the next big event on God's calendar -- the Second Coming of Christ.

Service times: Sunday School 10 a.m.; worship, 10:45 a.m.; evening worship, 6 p.m.; Wednesday Prayer and Praise, 7 p.m.
