There are times when God seems far away, and spiritual things feel as far away as London is from San Francisco. Other times God, and spiritual truths feel only a heart beat away. These past few weeks have been a time, for me, where they feel a heartbeat away. I’d like to share with you some pictures I’ve taken and illustrate the lesson I got from them.
In Texas right now, we are in the worst drought on record. We have had less rain than we did during the Dust Bowl. As I walked, looking at the brown, powdery earth beneath my feet, a verse popped into my head;
This weekend, we got one and a half inches of rain, and life sprang forth, which got me to thinking.
If you had looked at the ground a week ago, you would have said that it was dead. Nothing living could be in that sorry looking dirt, or could it?
Christ died to plant the seed of salvation, so that all those that believe that he was raised from the dead and confess him as their Lord will be transformed like the dirt after the rain.
