Disappearing act…

Help, O LORD, for the godly are fast disappearing! Psalms
12:1

Jesus said it would happen, He told us that as the last days
(2 Timothy 3:4) approached things would really change, people’s actions would
worsen and even those that profess to be believers would begin to show that
their motives lay elsewhere.

It is discouraging when we see others carrying the name of
Christ who compromise their faith and essentially blur the line between
believer and unbeliever. DC Talk summed up this reality in a song a few years
back that included the quote “it’s what an unbelieving world simply finds
unbelievable”.

The challenge is to us to stay strong and to continue to run
the race and to encourage those who once ran with us who might be falling
behind.

Let’s help the godly, let’s come alongside those that are
hurting or are at risk.

The Psalmist also wrote later in this chapter “Therefore,
LORD, we know you will protect the oppressed, preserving them forever from this
lying generation”. We don’t need to point out their faults; we need to point
them to Jesus.
