Our world is eroding – and that’s a good thing. After a week of failed power service, bad breaker switches and blown-out phone services, I am keenly aware of the fact that this world is decomposing. Do you realize, or better yet, do you stop to think that everything from the rock you stand on as you look out at the lake to the chair you are sitting on as you read this is breaking down. We live in a world that is passing away. Nothing will last forever. Almost.

Psalm 138:8 – The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
Your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
Do not forsake the work of your hands.

I pray that as we all face mounting evidence that all in our life is fragile, that we will remember that the Cross ensures that the One Thing we need to be constant will always be. He will always love us and be with us.

A Word from God for you and me:

Psalm 94

18 When I thought, “My foot slips,”

No matter what you risk for the Kingdom (Matthew 24:14), or what the results of your risk (Revelation 6:9-11), don’t miss the fact that the glory of God takes the form of fire, and because of Christ, the glory is meant for our eternal joy.  For the fire reveals what will give us endless joy – His Presence (Matthew 28:20)
