Increase in Wickedness - Love will grow cold


We are living in a time when wickedness has become a sort of style or fashion of the day. If we notice the news and keep track of the things happening all around us then we know that with each day wickedness is not only increasing but getting popular and accepted. What was in the list of wickedness few years ago is no longer there and has become accepted things. Its true with Christians also. Many things which are forbidden in the word of God is slowly creeping in and is becoming part of normal life. Tolerance is a good things but sometimes it can become dangerous in the sense that slowly it can make us cold. Last days I was meditating on a verse. Let me share it with you. Mathew 24:10-13:-

"At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved."
In these verses when Jesus was talking about the signs of end of the age. Jesus says that because of increase in wickedness the love of most will grow cold. As people of God, we should check our life always against this. Is our love growing cold?
Do you have the same passion and love for Jesus which we had when we believed? What is the condition of our hearts now? Jesus says that love of most will grow cold. Also the reason given is
increase in wickedness. How true is that? It's very much true. Many times we turn to every side and what we see is wickedness. Constant exposure to wickedness will slowly take us away from fellowship we enjoy with God.

One example I can give here so that you can check yourself to see what are the areas of you need to be careful in your life. I used to visit some news web site for reading news often. But recently I have noticed a change in their content. They still have news but all other things are sort of wicked in nature. They have all sort of useless things around. I have noticed and initially those things made me uncomfortable. Then I thought that I am only going to read the news and why should I care about other things. But soon I realized the my comfort level was changing. You may say its normal. Yes its normal but its a negative thing in respect to the standard a child of God has to follow. I hope you can understand what point I am trying to make here.

When we carefully see we will notice that many times its our lack of seriousness and our tolerance towards the wickedness which slowly takes us away from God. Many times it makes us lukewarm in our spiritual life. When we go to church or hear a sermon then we are hot but again we become cold in few hours.

I want to encourage you to look at your own life is see whats your condition. Are you growing cold? What is your hearts attitude towards wickedness?

Remember what Jesus said in these verses. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Let's not allow the wickedness around us to make us cold but rather stand firm till the end so that we will be saved.

May Goid Bless You!

They do not Compromise

"They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths." Psalms 119:3 (NLT)

We are living in times when compromise has almost become the rule of life. But its not always called as compromise. Sometimes compromise is shielded under words like tolerance, patience, endurance, love for each other, respect for one another etc. Have you ever thought about it. Most of the time we compromise something or other in our life. There are times when you don't have any other way but to compromise.

But today I want to divert your attention towards things your compromise in your spiritual life. Compromise is a slow poison that ultimately destroys respect for truth. What does that mean? You start with small and end up compromising on big things. This is very much true with our beliefs and convictions about truth and doctrine. First thing we must check in our life that how strong we are in our beliefs and convictions. It will have a direct impact on the fact that how easily we co…

Moral Purity in a Corrupt World

We are living in the information age. People have so many ways to get connected to each other. With the wide spread use of Internet came the popularity of services like email, chat, social networking etc. In many cases, privacy of people is compromised as most of the information about a person can be found out with the click of a button. Sometime ago I was reading an article in a leading Journal as how people check social networking sites to find information about a boy or girl when some marriage proposals come. The downside of all this is that people have access to so much information and materials again at just the click of a button. Most of the things we get at the click of a biutton though is not beneficial. Many times it can becomes dangerous.

A common issue expressed by many young people is their addiction to Internet and especially to the filth which is available free of cost. It's free of cost at times but people forget that they are paying a heavy price in regard to destr…
