In the current state of national and international affairs the gift of faith will be required now, more than ever, if we are to correctly see and interpret the times in which we live.
The unbelieving culture of Jesus’ day was much like the culture of our day. They were angry and upset. Into this disturbed culture Jesus said, “Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly.” (John 7:24)
God is always at work beneath the surface of visible cultural malaise preparing to do those things that are infinitely more wonderful than we could ever hope or imagine. These wonderful things are what our eyes of faith will see if we choose to look beneath the surface of what is obvious to see correctly the works of God that are taking place.
