    Life is messy

    June 23, 2019

     

    Life is messy.  We are broken people living in a broken world - precisely why Jesus came.  Jesus came to make all things new.  We can experience that newness now, through the new birth, but life is still messy.  Someday Jesus is coming back again to restore all things (no more mess)!  His word declares He is going to make a new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells.  But until then, life is messy.  No new revelation here - it always has been since the beginning of time.   The redemption of mankind via the cross was messy business!  Jesus didn’t come to save us from all the mess but to give us help and hope in the mess until He comes back to make all things new.   I’ve come to a conclusion this week due to things out of my control that I will not discuss.  The conclusion is this, either God is the God of all (meaning all of His word is true), or He is not God at all!   Meaning by faith I choose to believe all the promises of God (over 3,000) or I don’t believe any of it!  The God that said, “For He (God) so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, what whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life!”  is the same God that said, “all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” (cf. John 3:16; Romans 8:28)

    It’s easy for us to believe John 3:16, but we don’t want to accept Romans 8:28.  “All things work together for good!”  You mean…. Yes all things!  Not that all things are good, but if by faith we will place our trust and hope in Him, give Him our mess - He will use it ultimately for good, even if we don’t see it on this side of heaven.  Church is it time we either believe and obey the whole council of God’s word - or none of it!

    I am choosing by faith to embrace the whole council of God’s word - how about you?!

    In His Service,

    Pastor Rodney
