The Plumb Line of Jesus

In my twitter feed on September 24th, I read two tweets – back to back by two different people:
“You must stop talking about the problem and start talking about the solution… Start speaking words of victory.”
Women of Christ
“In a world filled with problems, He provides the answer. His name is Jesus.”
Liz Curtis Higgs
As simplistic as that sounds, it is complete truth. 

Jesus is our only answer.  Our Nation, our people, even many of our churches have turned their backs on Him.

We’ve turned our backs on Him and then  are disgusted, saddened, sickened, devastated by the news we hear daily. School killings, Pastors in prisons, human trafficking, need I go on?

When the simple answer is Jesus.

Have we strayed too far?

Can our world, our country, our lives ever be brought back to the
plumb line of Jesus?


  1. Brenda, I wonder about this so much. When will God just say "Enough!" I have been reading the old testament and the historical account of the Israelites is apt: when they turned their back on God, He gave them up. When they sought him with all their hearts, He blessed them.

    1. I believe we have backed ourselves into a corner. God is merciful. He shows tremendous grace. He also is jealous and just and wants us to worship only Him. We have made a mess of the beautiful world He created for us.
