The Spirit is interested in transforming us from the inside out. Flying closer to the flame sets that in motion. He is at work in dozens of different ways, some of them supernatural. Flying closer to the flame makes us acutely aware of that.
As another new year dawns, we at Insight for Living Canada want to help you and others understand our culture and realize how relevant the Scriptures are when we face the strong tide of popular opinions in this “politically correct” culture.
Have you been there? Are you there right now? If 2020 has knocked you to your knees, read my next words carefully: God is in that long, dark alley. He’s not oblivious. He’s not far removed. He’s there. He cares. And He’s working.
My advice this Christmas? Allow the traditions of the season to stir you up by way of reminder. Allow the things familiar to point you to things essential. Don’t miss them.
The Bible teaches it. The Lord Jesus stood upon its truths. The apostles declared it and wrote about it. The creeds include it and affirm it. These facts from biblical prophecy about Christ’s return may surprise you.
Two millennia ago, God answered the anguished cry of humanity by making “the problem of evil” His own. God Almighty became Immanuel, “God with us.” He lived as we live, suffered as we suffer, died as we die, yet without sin.
You may only be one person, but you can still make a difference. So, please, make a difference! God has opened a door for you. It’s open right now. Find it. Walk through it. Don’t hesitate.
Thanksgiving is a holiday with deep, biblical roots. It’s a day for those who belong to Christ Jesus to look up, around, and within as we use three magnificent words that can completely change our perspective: “Thank You, Lord!”
Insight for Living Canada is committed to being the masterpiece God is shaping us to be...and to helping others do the same...so together we can do the good things He has planned for us.
