“The World Always Changes – But Not the Old Self of Human Race 世界常在轉變，而人類老我卻不然“（Ephesians 以弗所書 4:17-19）
… you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. …
Just like a pendulum remaining fixed at the top while it swings back and forth from one extreme to another, so the human race remains basically unchanged while it moves through its limited arc. No responsible person will deny that improvements representing progress and advance are due to some changes made by mankind over the years. However, towards where we are heading has not been made very clear by our leaders! The picture is just like a deadly-serious and fanatically determined dachshund chasing breathlessly after its ‘removed and non-existed tail’ while a number of other dachshunds, bespectacled and solemn, writing books to prove that the frustrated puppy’s activity is progress! (A. W. Tozer)
Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, there is a constant tendency for us to display to the world that we are really not so different after all. This is often due to a misguided effort to gain the world’s ‘respect’ or approval. Help us to resist at all costs because the goal in itself is both undesirable and unachievable. Thank you that you turn us around by your wonderful love and put us in the right direction by your living word so that we have a proper way and place to walk. May we walk and grow in the direction guided by the Holy Spirit. Amen.
