The Stream Founder James Robison on Today’s Climate: Iron Sharpens Iron
In his latest Facebook video, The Stream founder James Robison tackles the issue of division and hostility in today’s climate. He said that “iron sharpens iron.”
“What’s the significance of that? In order for iron to sharpen iron, the concept is you bring two blades together … and you sharpen a knife. It requires friction.” To get the sharpest edge, you must have oil. James said that with a spiritual understanding, the oil is the Holy Spirit. “Oil of the Holy Spirit is essential to make all of us sharp.” That includes the church, leaders, national leaders, political leaders and others.
The problem is, we meet head-on and because of it, “the whole country becomes dull and wisdom vanishes.” He said we must understand the purpose of friction.
He asks that we pray for wisdom to prevail as we come together and for friction to make us sharper.
P.S. Love the hat, boss.
