We live in a day and age when it seems like all hell has broken loose.
Cruelty, injustice, violence, strife, and chaos fill our headlines.
We can try and tune it out. But we must face the world as it really is. Christians are to be realists about the sad state of affairs in our world and in our nation.
What can we do about the pain and misery all around us, everywhere we look?
The believer should turn to Jesus. We should pray as He taught us: Deliver us from evil.
And then we should do what we can to pursue justice and mercy in our sin-filled world.
