As a Christian, the problems of society can be overwhelming. Children are being separated from their families at the border. War is devastating regions around the world. White supremacists are staking claim to our country.
Jesus says we cannot solve any of these problems without getting to the root of the issue: evil. Jesus tells us that the world is in need of salvation and the medicine of God is the only thing that can heal humanity.
That doesn’t mean we should sit and wait for change. The Holy Spirit gives us the power of God to help heal the world. But are we ready to accept this huge responsibility? We have to come to the place in our lives where we have to have the humility to change the place that we live, our life situation, and be transformed by the Holy Spirit.
