Our world is dark.
Turn on any news program and you’ll hear of murder, rape, drug addiction, child abuse, terrorists, bomb threats, and shootings within our country, and that doesn’t include the sex slavery, child labor, and countless deaths caused by curable diseases happening throughout the world.
And it seems no matter what we do, things are only getting worse.
It can become easy for us, even as Christians, to focus on the darkness - to believe that darkness is winning in our city, our state, our region, our country, continent, and world; to see darkness rising in our workplaces; to think there is nothing we can do to bring true change.
There is a battle between light and dark, and it looks as if the darkness is winning.
