We live in challenging times. Turbulent times.
Ideas and situations have changed so quickly over the last year that it might feel like you are trying to farm the wind. Tame the ocean.
We will never go back to the world we lived in 2019. The effort to turn back the clock is futile.
The only way to move forward is to hold onto the authority of God’s Word whether it is matters of sexuality, life, or worship. The only way to forge our way into the future is in simple obedience to Jesus and His Word.
If we scatter in this effort. If we turn on each other in this effort. If we fall asleep in this effort. All is lost.
There is nothing better to hold the line and step forward into the unknowns of the future in faith. As the Preacher in Jerusalem said “Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.” (Ecc. 12:13)
Do justice. Love kindness. Walk humbly with your God. Isn’t that what God has required of you and me? (Micah 6:8).
The Lord gives you a feast in the fog. He gives you the ability to enjoy His gifts even as the clouds gather.
Hold the line. God will bring every deed into judgement. Whether good or evil. (Ecc. 12:14).
There is nothing better than to do your duty knowing that God has already accepted your works in Christ Jesus (Ecc. 9:7).
