IN THE WIND

Today it seems that everyone and everywhere you go there is opinions about everything. Which movies and actors are the best or worst, what foods you should eat or not eat and why, who loves who, and of course you have politics. So many people love to argue, with passion, about what they believe is correct. They are neither right nor wrong. These are opinions.
How many times in your life have you heard an individual’s comment that one person’s religious beliefs may work for that person, but another’s belief may work just as well for others. Religious intolerance is not in fashion today. Society is accepting any and all beliefs no matter if it’s bases are factual or self-created. Christianity, however, is not a religion or a philosophy. It is reality! Like the rotation of the earth, gravity, or the wind. It is reality. Let’s look at the wind. You can see how the wind works by watching the tree branches or the waves at the beach. If you expose yourself to it, you can feel it as you interact with it. I prefer to be the one that is in the wind, in Christ, then to be the person that stays inside and only looks at Christians but does not allow the spirit of Christ to touch them. Christianity is reality as pure as Life and death.
Moses’ last words to the Israelites impressed on them what was at stake in their future as they entered the Promised Land. he said to them:  “Take to heart all the words by which I am warning you today, that you may command them to your children, that they may be careful to do all the words of this law. 47 For it is no empty word for you, but your very life” Deuteronomy 32:46-47.
The Bible, God’s Word, is not just an ancient and interesting piece of literature. It connects you to your Savior. You are either with the God of the Bible or you are against Him. The reality is Life or death. May the peace that comes with the knowledge of His Word fill your days.
