Leaving The Nest

Leaving The Nest…

Proverbs 27: 8 says, ‘Like a bird wandering from its nest is a man who wanders from his place.” There are many truths in this Scripture, some for the individual, and some, much larger; true not only of men but of civilization. An entire civilization can be as a bird, wandering from its nest.

That’s exactly what’s happening in our world today. Western Civilization, as we know it, was born of a Judeo-Christian foundation or nest. Virtually everything about it was linked to that foundation – its morality, its legal system, its culture, its music, its science, and its thoughts.

But what we’re now witnessing is this same civilization rapidly departing from its biblical foundations, its nest. This is part of the prophesied “apostasy” of the last days. But we who belong to Jesus are especially joined to the foundation, to the nest.

Thus, in these last days, it’s crucial that we stand all the more strong for the Lord and that we all the more proclaim the Gospel; to call home every soul and a world which has wandered far from its foundations, like a bird from its nest.

For no one can lay any foundationf other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Cor 3:11

Today, look for any opportunity to bring others to Jesus. Share the good news!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
