Late Night Shows and comedy segments often do a Man on the Street interview to get a laugh. If the topic was the meaning of Memorial Day, young kids would likely reply with selfish comments. “A three day weekend, time off school, the first day of summer”. Unfortunately, remembering those who have died while serving the United States has become out of state out of mind.
If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth, 1 John 1:6.
The concept of the soul was inspiration for Hall and Oates 1985 song Out of Touch. Afraid individuals would lose their soul, John Oates etched this chorus: You’re out of touch I’m out of time But I’m out of my head When you’re not around. This sense of urgency is missing from a generation spoiled by the freedom in America. As more and more veterans pass away annually, their time has come to an end.
Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did, 1 John 2:6.
Spiritually speaking, the church is out of touch and nearly out of time to sway a country leaning to the left. As hearts and minds embrace secular humanism, who will stand up, blaze a new trail and ignite souls to pursue Christ. Perhaps, most are still out of touch, distracted by a world gone wild. Nearly out of time, who will come forth to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
