What is the need of the hour? That depends on the person who is thinking about it.
For a beggar with a tin cup, it’s a dime. For a woman being taken to the hospital, it’s a doctor. But what is it in Christian work?
Some say, “If I just had a larger staff.” Many a minister would like an assistant, and many a mission would like more missionaries. Others say, “We don’t need more workers, but better facilities. If we just had more office space and more buildings, then we could do the job.”
In some parts of the world they say it’s better communications we lack, or better transportation, or better health care.
Many feel the need is an open door into some closed country.
Some say, “If we just had more time,” or “If I just weren’t so old.”
What is the need of the hour? I don’t believe it is any of these. I am convinced that the God of the universe is in control, and He will supply all these needs in His own way and in His own time. The need of the hour is an army of soldiers dedicated to Jesus Christ, who believe that He is God, that He can fulfill every promise He ever made, and that nothing is too hard for Him. This is the only way we can accomplish what is on God’s heart.
