It is not surprising that our generation is called the “broken-up people”. We have broken up homes, broken up churches, and a society that is fragmenting fast. Women, children, young people, marriages, even leaders are broken up and hurting. People are looking for lives which can have meaning and newness and purpose. Alas we are living in a world with upside down values! Black is no longer black! The Hebrew prophet Isaiah warns us in Is. 5:20 of what will happen to any society that has upside down values: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness ………..” God wants us to wake up before it is too late!
Our Focus is on God for Jesus said : “I am the Way the Truth and the Life, no man comes to the Father but by Me”.(John 14:6)
Jesus also said “Thy Word is Truth!” (John 17:17)
God’s value system forms the basic principles of His Kingdom people. If we are following after the world’s criteria of identity as is found in our family background, our possessions, our successes, our prestige, our power —- one day we’ll find we have been trying to build on shifting sand and some day our house will collapse. What value system are you passing on to your children? World’s value system is rooted in “self”. God’s value system is founded on God Himself. In God’s value system, God is central and the Cross is central. Today, very subtly we see a dangerous shift from God to self.
And Jesus weeps because we have turned away from the fountain of living water to broken cisterns that can hold no water!
Jesus weeps because our homes are breaking up, and are no longer the center of love and peace God wants them to be!

Jesus weeps because our churches are divided and compromised to the ways of the world than that of God!
May the love of God transform us, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ strengthen us, and the power of the Holy Sprit enable us to become all that Christ died for.
