As simple as it may sound, only Jesus and the Holy Spirit at work in one’s life is the way all will be set right. No amount of legislation, new leadership, or reform can right the human heart. Only the transformation of the heart, in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, brings about true change and reform. For such reform is not exterior or imposed, but interior change that produces changes in behavior.
We continue to live in some of the most trying days we have seen. More than ever we need to earnestly cry out for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. We need to fervently pray for our leaders, our communities and our neighbors. We need to continually take inventory of our own hearts and return to Him when we have wrestled our will to be done apart from God’s will for our lives. We need to be bold in proclaiming Jesus in what we post, how we react, and how we engage others as His ambassadors in the world. May we surrender our wills before God and find union with Him and with others as we seek His will above all else for our lives and those whose lives intersect with our own.
