We believers like to think it’s the world’s fault, not our own fault. If Jesus were making a wow difference in the lives of us believers, would the Bunny be replacing Jesus in such a widespread way? Would there be respect for a Jesus-centered holiday, if there was amazing humility and amazing love in believers, evidencing an amazing Jesus? So do we pray for the world to change, or do we pray for us believers be changed? A widespread awakening?
