But First We Need

June 16, 2016

Previously in this space —

How long, O Lord? asks Psalm 13:1 in the New International Version.

Long enough, God, declares The Message Version.

How long wilt Thou forget me, O Lord? For ever?  wonders the 21st Century King James Version.

How much longer, Lord? Will it be forever? How long will you hide? demands the Contemporary English Version.

…And the reply comes back, Let me ask you the same question.

Silence.

How many more times are you gonna hit your snooze button?

Today —

“Wake up the Saints!” is a line from a song that the Love Unlimited Youth Choir from Augusta, Georgia sang as part of their amazing concert Tuesday evening in our sanctuary.

“Wake up the Saints!” has nothing to do with a football team in the NFL from New Orleans.

“Wake up the Saints!” is the prescription for so many things. At the top of that list is Christ’s Holy Church.

“Wake up the Saints!”

The world needs what we have.

But first we need to “Wake up the Saints!”
