Shaking the Things that Remain

People have abundant, valid reasons for being discouraged about their perspective for the future.

  • Gone are the days of earning high interest on “savings” and inflation eats away at the value of what we may have stashed away.
  • Drug use is an epidemic in our schools.
  • Finding suitable employment is becoming more difficult.

We can’t even feel safe in our own homes, at the Mall or grocery store, or even going to a movie…

The outlook is grim indeed.

John 1:5

The light SHINES in the darkness, and the darkness HASN’T overcome it. (WEB)

Even though neither politicians nor the media curry the favor of the Religious Right any longer…

Even though we may be facing dire and dark times…

2 Cor. 4:6-9

seeing it is God who said, “Light will shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

^But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves.

^We are pressed on every side, yet not crushed; perplexed, yet not to despair;

^pursued, yet not forsaken; struck down, yet not destroyed; (WEB)

We are not

~living in exile like Israel in Babylon

~facing persecution and death like early church at the hands of the Roman empire

~without a living hope

Ps. 25:15 My eyes are ever on Yahweh, for he will pluck my feet out of the net. (WEB)

Jer. 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says Yahweh, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope in your latter end. (WEB)
