Blizzard of 2015
Dr. Jed N. Snyder, President, Jesus Every Day Ministries
As I write we, here is eastern Massachusetts, (we are on a brief vacation) are facing a blizzard of “historic proportions” or at least this is what the weather people are telling us. Twenty-four to thirty inches of blowing snow will be enough to halt nearly everything excepting the huge plows and salt trucks.
I find it interesting to think that with a simple storm God can halt most of human activity. If this is the kind of God we worship then we would do very well to consider Him with great reverence. Equally difficult is the blistering one hundred ten degree heat of South Carolina in July or August, especially if such conditions continue for several days.
So how do you view God?
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day”. Genesis 1:1-5
If God spoke and light and darkness were separated and day and night arrived, we should be careful to also understand what God told us of our eternal well-being.
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4-7
Happy salvation and pleasant future to all who believe.
