There are many unrighteous acts and none are more weighty than the other.
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God” 1 Corinthians 6:9
Many of these are being addressed in our culture through laws of some kind. For example there are limitations within the law for the drinking of alcohol and punishment for criminals and thieves, business laws in place, an affair is not publicly accepted…there are other things that happen that are almost unbelievable…not often spoken of and barely conceivable – because they are such atrocities. Our television screens screaming of all kinds of violence and criminal activities.
Have you heard about Human trafficking? Enslaving of people against their will for such things as sex slavery and pornography?
Today, such things are happening – that you and I can barely conceive could be happening in our ‘’modern’’ world today. They are and we cannot close our ears for another millisecond to the plight of people made prisoners and held captive against their will…I invite you to look at the following short movie/link. Before you do, I invite you to pray this prayer with me:
“Lord, today, I do not pray that you would protect me from what I am about to watch – I pray that you would make me vulnerable to the plight of those represented in this short movie – vulnerable so that I might know your heart is broken over this hideousness..and my heart would be broken also….and then Holy Spirit show me what to do – and help me to do it! Thankyou Lord, Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven…move me! Amen.”
We have a living hope – Christ in us, our hope of Glory to share with those that have no hope..
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.”
1 Peter 1:3-4
