I was highly amused when I heard a British government official threatening sanctions against African countries that do not conform to Western standards of morality. Sorry, but when it comes to moral issues I dare say Africa is far ahead of most Western countries. Sometimes when you are poor you lose your voice and so even when you are right you are forced to say you are wrong. That is the African dilemma which unfortunately is becoming the universal norm. The world is changing THE WORD and making us feel guilty for believing the way we do as Christians. If you care to listen, please hear me out. We need to come to a place of repentance in order to experience RESTORATION! God loves the sinner more than any legal system could but He insists that sin has to be dealt with and calls for repentance. Let us heed the call to repentance and the good Lord will restore us.
BIBLE READING FOR TODAY'S DEVOTIONAL: JOEL2:12-17(KJV)
2:12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
