A Call To The Church

II Chronicles [7:13]-14  If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

What if we had said 6 months ago that something was going to happen that would shake up the whole world.  That would dramatically slow down the rat race.  We would have said that would be impossible.  And yet it has happened.  

And what has been our response as Christians?  As those who are called by the name of Christ?  We are shouting at people in social media, and hoarding supplies.  Perhaps buying guns.  Some of us are defiantly demanding that things go back to normal.  Demanding that we have our rat race back!

We are given this opportunity to humble ourselves, and seek God’s face, and turn from our wicked ways.  This scripture does not say “Everyone on earth” should do these things.  It says If MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME.  We as a church have access to a power that can make a difference and we are so tied up in the world that we are not seeing it. 

God help us to see our current situation through Your eyes and respond according to Your will!
