I’m especially glad of our walk today, Mr O, because right now I feel overwhelmed and I need to talk about it. There is so much on my mind. I feel like a drowning man who is about to go under for the last time.
Go on, get it all off your chest. But please slow down! I’m beginning to get old and it’s hard for me to understand fast talk.
I’m sorry. But the world is in a mess, isn’t it? There’s war and tension and unrest everywhere you look. Our culture is riddled with sin. Bible-believing churches aren’t having much influence and they have problems of their own. Our standard of discipleship is very low. Lots of professing Christians are – to put it bluntly – worldly. Our prayer life is poor. We are not winning the lost as we should. And my own Christian life is no great shakes either. And everything is getting on top of me.
