The crises in our world are real. You know this whether you’re liberal, conservative or somewhere in the middle. The reasons are many: technology that enables humanity to do more harm than ever before, increasing rigidity of belief and instantaneous communication that magnifies everything. But there is another reason we often ignore. We are relying less on God and more on ourselves. And this has landed us in the worst possible crisis – a spiritual crisis. So what do we do? Humble ourselves before God. Engage in deep prayer. Let God spiritually revive us from the inside-out. Trust God fully. And courageously engage the world with God’s hope. It’s a long process to be sure. There will be skeptics who scoff. And you’ll sometimes wonder whether anything will really change. But it will. Because people who are filled with God’s love are people who actually change lives, communities and the world.
