“Time To Seek The God Of Kindness, Justice And Righteousness!”
The wise people of our times in our country can humbly admit that human wisdom has failed us so far. Those of us in the position of power and authority in this country should have realised by now that strength through the exercise of despotic power has woefully failed us!
And the rich people of our time can be honest to admit that riches haven’t been able to provide solutions to our present predicament.
The crises that has rocked the anglophone regions of Cameroon for the past months culminating in deaths, indiscriminate arrests, detentions, vandalism culminating in a massive boycott of Youth Day celebrations on 11th February 2017 in the English regions only go to confirm the profound assertion of the psalmist that “Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labour in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain” (127:1).
We have employed human wisdom, we have used power and force and we have spent money, but the crises is still persisting.
So what do we do?
Our plea to all concerned is to seek the face of God in all earnestness! There is need to set up a Commission of Church people to arbitrate in this matter so that this stalemate can be surmounted!
Through the prophet Jeremiah the Lord tells us not boast neither of our wisdom, strength nor riches.
“But let him who boasts boast about this: ‘that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight'” (9:23-24).
Dear leaders, dear God-fearers and those who hold this land at heart, let us turn to the Man of Calvary who exercises “kindness, justice and righteousness” because it is the lack of these virtues that has brought us to this impasse!
May the Holy Spirit touch each hearts to shun the path of violence, force and intimidation so that we can pursue the path of truth and peace! God bless our land and God bless you! Peace be with you!
