We've all seen what happens. Pond scum, not a pretty sight. Today we're looking at Moses' experience in the wilderness when needing to provide water for the newly freed Israelites. The story supplies some great images and a most necessary application.
...Off the bus, out of the car...you're no longer in the driver's seat. It's time for Wisdom to take over, and that is only accomplished through the engine of the Spirit. Circumstances of life can, will, and do drive us to that point... if we will let it.
We pick up from last week in our reflection of our situation, both nationally and individually during this difficult time in our history.
Right now both our nation and the world are experiencing and witnessing a trial that none of us ever anticipated. We usually think of sermon applications as something strictly personal but not much more than that. Maybe we need to think outside that box, maybe regionally... nationally... globally this time. Time for some introspection.
Sceptics have always been in abundance, particularly when it comes to believing in God in general, and even in Jesus more specifically, let alone His resurrection. And you would think that particularly in this advanced age of technology that all religion would be relegated to the trash bin of myth and allegory. But not so. In fact science is now beginning to answer the age old question of how light which is billions of light years away could have been visible by Adam in 6 short 24 hour days. Hmm...that's a mind bender, but it's true, and we're beginning to discover how that happened. But let's get back to the subject at hand. Jesus rising from the dead. The power of testimony still stands today. Let's take a second look.
I think because it's been 2000 years since Jesus' resurrection that many people do not believe it to be true, and therefore they don't really considering that He is God and that what He has told us is the absolute truth. There's much to say about that: Why 2000 years? Is He coming back, and if so, when? We'll get into that some day soon, but what about right now? Today, with all the fear and insanity, particularly with a worldwide pandemic? Take a moment, a breath, and listen. God bless, and happy Easter and Passover Week.
In the midst of this serious time in both our nation's history and the world, having serious conversation with our Living God is more than just a suggestion..
