Are we living in the most unpredictable, calamitous, and argumentative age in modern history? If we believe everything we see and hear, it certainly feels that way! People are fighting over skin color, body size, calorie counts, and many can’t even figure out whether or not they are male or female. People just can’t seem to decide who or what they are and why they are on this planet! It is CRAZY, CRAZY, CRAZY!
Fear not! There does exist an answer to all of this dysfunctional chaos that surrounds those of us who stand in the middle of sanity and hope. Indeed, we believe for more and we have faith that it will not always be this way. This crazy world we live in is most certainly changing and becoming more uncertain of itself every day. But those who hold in their heart the promise of a better day has within them the hope of its appearing. Come on promise! Where art thou? We are ready, ready, ready for your revealing!
Uh oh! That last statement sounds like the cry of someone who still hasn’t figured out who they are. The promise isn’t something or someone in the distance who will soon appear and change the condition of society. The promise is you. The promise is me. The promise is the work of Christ in us that compels us to BECOME more than all those things that reflect CRAZY until our presence introduces CALM into the CRAZY that is all around us! Ha! Revelation is at our doorstep. Embrace it. Receive it. Accept it. You are the promise that Yahweh filled with Christ to change the earth!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 NIV
We have an opportunity to be the CALM in the middle of the CRAZY. Let’s succeed in delivering the peace of the Kingdom into the chaos of the world. Let it be said of us that while the walls were falling down around us and the earth opened up we stood upon the shoulders of our God and were untouched by the sorcery of Satan’s schemes! We are CRAZY CALM and we own it.
