The scripture states...

Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD.

Perhaps, I am the only one that feels that this scripture describes the world that we live in, but I do firmly believe it.  I do not always want to paint a negative picture of our current society, but there is a famine of the truth.  We live in a land of plenty, but neglect the Word of God.  The Bible states...

2Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

There is a definite need for those that are willing to stand and teach and preach the truth.  The Bible states...

John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

When we preach and teach the truth,  then lives can be changed at an altar.  On the day of Pentecost, Peter preached the truth and the Bible states...

Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

I challenge you to speak to someone this week the truth of Word of God.  We can determine that in our community there will be no famine of the Word of God.
