“Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me.”
For nearly two centuries, England produced the greatest pastor-teachers that the world had yet to hear. As the Gospel went forth the hearts of millions were stirred to seek the Lord. Charles Spurgeon alone taught the Word of God to thousands each Sunday morning!
Sadly, over time, England lost her appetite for sound Bible teaching, and as a result, many of her great churches of yesteryear have now Muslim mosques or havens for New Age philosophers.
I once attended a service at London’s Chapel of the Guards where the Queens’ guards attend each Lord’s Day. It was filled to capacity, nearly four thousand strong! I held back tears as Her Majesty’s lieutenant read the Scriptures for behind all the glory and appearance of righteousness, England had become a post-Christian nation.
Unless God is at the helm, a city or nation’s spiritual influence will gradually
die and fade away.
As I walked London’s historic streets, I thought about the future and asked myself these questions: What significance will I make for Jesus, and will it last? Will all we work for and strive for become relegated to history books, or will it live on? Will I, will you, pass on the faith that was once and for all committed to the saints?
I pray that the history we make today remains meaningful to those yet to come. May we feel an urgency to repent, seek God’s face, and live for Jesus Christ, thus making a difference here and beyond.
Awaiting His return,
– Pastor Jack
