Regurgitate-repeat (information) without analyzing or comprehending it
This is the problem politically in this country but most importantly it is also a problem spiritually. A lot of information and words are floating around these days, but they are hollow. If we want to find restoration it will require change in our hearts. If we want to see revival in any facet of our life or the world around us it will require repentance and coming to know Christ for ourselves.
Why has racism flourished? Why is the U.S. flag in our churches to the right of the speaker and hoisted above all others outdoors? Why are people so concerned about abortion yet unwilling to build a relationship with that young lady? Why is the immigrant despised? Why do people complain prayer is not in schools but ignore it in their daily life? Why does injustice fill our neighborhoods and flood our courts? WHY?
It’s time to think. It’s time to know what you believe and why you believe it. It’s time to put action to your words. It’s time to see for yourself what Scripture teaches. Listen to the teachers, read books and blogs but use the filter of Scripture and let the Holy Spirit guide you and speak to you…then apply those principles to your life. It’s time to live and love as Christ has called us…like Him, not the world.
Regurgitation is useless and births nothing but more of the same. Christ is the solution, overflowing with light dispels the darkness. That is what has angered us, isn’t it? The darkness. The injustice. The cruelty. The lack of accountability. The way we always see more of the same. The pain. It is tears us apart and the world we live in is fractured and broken and hopeless because of it. If we want change it starts with Christ, it starts with Light. God is Love, He created in Love, He sent Christ to die because He loves us, and it is love that endures.
You want to fight the brokenness of this world? Jettison the regurgitation, give your life to Christ, follow Him, and shine with His love and light…you’ll see the transformation in you and the world around you. With each candle that flickers in the darkness less darkness fills our eyes, with each flickering flame the darkness is dispelled.
