Ecclesiastes 3 is the text for our next installment of Making Sense Of It All. Studying for this one chapter has caused me to re-examine some key Christian doctrines.
Solomon says â€œThere is a time or season for everything.â€ At first glance it appears like the wise man is discussing the different seasons of life that happen upon us, but a closer examinations reveals something much deeper and much more challenging in our walk with God.
The source of these seasons may surprise you, but our response is foundational to our faith. Looking forward to our unpacking of these truths together.
The last installment of Invasion & Rescue, attention will be given to the temptation of the survivors of the USS Indianapolis to drink salt water as they waited rescue.
Like these men, we're immersed in a sea of temptation that claims many lives daily. How could the crew take their minds off the deadly seawater and on the task of survival? What keeps us from indulging the alluring waters about us?
Survival must look beyond the immediate plight and gaze upon the ultimate goal of being rescued. Sharks, injuries, thirst, and hunger cannot block the dream of rescue without our permission.
