The Universal Problem


God. It doesn't look like the wars raging in our world today will be ending anytime soon. 100,000 Syrians killed in the Syrian civil war since 2011. Rising civilian death toll in Afghanistan mainly attributed to Taliban forces. Unrest in Egypt, Sudan, Congo, Palestine, countless other countries. The silent suffering of forgotten peoples; North Koreans, Haitians, Somalians, Burmese. Killings and bombings of Hazaras by militant extremist group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi in Quetta, Pakistan.

And do you know what the universal problem is? Humans. Man's lust for power, greed for personal gain, desire for self-pleasure, lack of love, depravity of soul, heartlessness of heart, darkness of spirit, blindness of sight.

Our greatest problem and greatest pleasure is each other. And our only solution, is whole-hearted surrender to Jesus.
