Recently, I heard a podcast by Ravi Zacharias on how to build a moral society. It was like the refreshing moment when the sweaty, dusty pollen of a long spring hike is washed away by a deep dive into the cool waters of a beautiful river swimming hole. It was like the tipping point moment when enough of the puzzle pieces strewn out on the table have come together to reveal a clear picture, making the remaining pieces easy to place. It was like the enlightening moment when the canvas of midnight black is lifted off, little by little, as the morning sun reveals the color and clarity of our beautiful world.
Oh, the wonderful integration Jesus’ gospel truth can bring to the thoughts, feelings, pressures, and temptations caused by the ever-present voices of the world around us, as well as the world within us. David the Psalmist echoes this sentiment in Psalm 19 when he writes “The revelation of God is whole and pulls our lives together.”
I could say more about it, but I want to save you the time so you will listen to the message for yourself. I recommend you get a pen and paper to take some notes.
