Asleep in the Light

Keith Green wrote and recorded a song about how "the world is sleeping in the dark that the church just can't fight 'cause it's asleep in the light."

What an indictment that is against the church if we are so concerned about God blessing us that we ignore the needs of the people around us who are living quiet lives of desperation because they don't know God. These are people who may not even realize they need God, but they know they need something to bring the joy and peace into their lives that is so elusive for them.

Truly, we need to intensify our prayer for people who are looking for answers. And we need to step up and tell them about Jesus' love. And we need to be bold and invite them to go to church with us so that they may hear a clear explanation of the gospel.

Be bold in intercessory prayer, and be bold in inviting people to Solid Rock Church for Easter. Do the kneework and the legwork.
