Spring 2017 is here and I believe the warm weather is here to stay…I think. With spring comes beautiful days and the torrential activity. We have seen our share of tornadoes and hail over the current weeks and past few years — and will likely see more in the future. In this way, life is a lot like the weather.
My former pastor Wayne Barber (who is present with the Lord today) spoke of our lives in Christ as having similar to weather patterns. Brother Wayne would say, “Your life is in one of three modes: You are in the middle of life’s storm, you are coming out of life’s storm, or you are preparing to go into life’s storm.”
You can surmise from this statement that there is no “vacation” from life. We need to always be on the alert and sober for all things. But know this: The believer in Christ has the assurance that he or she is not alone, for He abides (taken up residence) in us.
As we celebrate this Resurrection Sunday, remember our hope in the midst of all conflicts and trials is in Christ Jesus. “He is risen, He has risen indeed!”
