The Blessings of the Cross - A LIVING RELIGION
 
"If we live, we live to the LORD; and if we die, we die to the LORD. So whether we live or die, we belong to the LORD."
- Romans 14:7-9
 
We have lived and shall live in a world which has dethroned God. When that happens an axiom in history swings into action. When people dethrone God, His throne never remains empty. One must inevitably worship something; if he does not worship God, he will worship himself, his country, his mind, his science. If one has no God, he must have idols. This is the elemental tragedy of our age. Our trouble is not that . . .

The Blessings of the Cross - A LIVING RELIGION

We have lived and shall live in a world which has dethroned God. When that happens an axiom in history swings into action. When people dethrone God, His throne never remains empty. One must inevitably worship something; if he does not worship God, he will worship himself, his country, his mind, his science. If one has no God, he must have idols. This is the elemental tragedy of our age. Our trouble is not that people have no religion, but that they have the wrong religion.
 
The need of the modern mind for worship and reverence becomes even more immediate when we remember that for a long time to come we shall be living in a suffering world. War and famine have left, and will continue to leave, their dark aftermath of maladjustments, broken lives and homes, social and economic tensions, psychological strain. Here, another axiom of history operates. When man can turn nowhere else, he may begin to turn upward. If there are men and women in the world who will be ready to guide their desperation to God in Christ and to lift their fear-filled-eyes to the Cross, we shall witness a great moment in modern history.
 
Christian friends, how important is it then that our actions be guarded and directed by the Holy Spirit. read v. 7
 
Show me the way, LORD, let my light shine
As an example of good to mankind;
Help them to see the patterns of Thee,
Shining in beauty, lived out in me.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - You can never bury your influence.
