Philippians 3:19 They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth.
If for any reason you didn’t read the scripture above, please stop and read it now.
Does this sound familiar to you? Can you think of a generation that is like this right now in this day and age?
My heart aches as I type because I know that this verse describes our generation. We celebrate everything with food and have no desire to go through periods of prayer and fasting. Sexual immorality is accepted and has become a norm; pornography and prostitution is no longer taboo, sex is shown and discussed openly and loosely on every medium available to man and the world persecutes those who speak out against it. In addition, man’s eyes seemed to be fixed on earthly treasures and accomplishments rather than heavenly ones; everyone aims at building a nice house, driving a nice car, earning a great degree and finding the perfect job. How many are enthused about winning souls for the kingdom and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are being given a warning. If we do not wake up and change our ways, we will be destroyed. It’s time to shift our focus and realign it to God’s will.
