This generation has little sense of ultimate reality. They are stuck here, in this place that is passing away. Their entire mind and heart is stuck here and spends almost no time pondering eternity, what is beyond, what is to come. They are lost, hopeless, wandering around in the dark, having their convictions handed to them through social media rather than the Word of God. And are they confused. So deeply and sadly confused. So wise in their own eyes. So far from the Truth. So in need of an anchor, a rock, something to hold onto and cling to in the tossing ocean of ideas in which they live. They think life is so complicated. It is not. Hard, yes…that is life in a fallen world ruled by the Father of Lies. But complicated, no. It is only complicated if you try to understand life, existence, eternity and ethics apart from God. Now that is complicated, for the creature to turn itself into creator and somehow explain its own creation, existence and purpose without any input from the actual creator. Believe in God, fully and completely trust in Him, and the complexity and confusion (if not the difficulty) evaporate.
