from Pastor Mel
What’s your world view? Is your world one of random, chance happenings which you may or may not be able to control?
Are you just waiting until your “number comes up”?
That’s a brutal, evolutionary view of life and humanity and one totally contradicted by the Christian faith.
Genesis 1, in the first book of the Old Testament, it says “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
In the last book, the Book of the Revelation of St John (popularly known as “Revelations”), Jesus appears to John the apostle on the island of Patmos.
John records: “When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. But He placed His right hand on me and said, “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last, the Living One. I was dead, and behold, now I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of Death and of Hades.”
In the biblical world view, everything begins and ends with God.
Many people are fearful and anxious about all manner of things, but Jesus Christ says “do not worry, look at the birds of the air and how well they are provided for, and the lilies of the field and how beautiful they are”!
Have faith. Press in and seek the Lord God, somehow, some way. You might even go to a church somewhere. Jesus Christ is not a dictator. But He seeks, by the Holy Spirit sent by the Father, those whose hearts are open to Him.
