The gospel of Matthew, chapter 27 tells us about a man and a nation who lost touch with the concept of truth. He ended up washing his hands of this man called Jesus. The end result of his deed was that he had a troubled conscious, and he set the stage, in measure, for a decaying and collapsing nation from right underneath his feet.
In retrospect, we look and see how different his own future and all those he affected might have been if he had joined the chorus of voices crying out for this man Jesus.
My question to you is: Do we not do the same when we cease to pray—when we’re not in that secret place crying out for God to do what only God can do in our midst? Let’s not wash our hands of Jesus. I think you and I, at this juncture in history, at this critical juncture, might be found among those in the secret place saying, “Jesus, please come. Jesus, come!”
