Meditation. 2.4.2017. Flood Waters

At the moment in Queensland and Northern NSW we are experiencing serious flooding in the aftermath of the devastating Cyclone Debbie which ravaged Queensland this week. Last week life was normal for people living in tropical Queensland. Everybody going about their business, people holidaying, at least one couple booked to be married at one of the island resorts, children attending school each day.

Then within twenty four hours life was turned upside down. Houses destroyed, vegetation stripped bare, power gone, no water available in some places, petrol supplies running short, food supplies dwindling.

How very much this sounds like the words of Jesus in Matthew 24:38,39

“In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat.

People didn't realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away.”

Meditation. 16.4.2017. What if it’s true?

 

sign outside church

Recently while travelling in New Zealand we passed this church with the sign outside which asked, “What if it’s true?”

In its simplicity it was so striking that consequently it is being used as the basis for our editorial and meditation this week.

There are many who do not believe in God, the Father and Creator of all, and His Son who died so that we might live. It is easy to ignore anything to do with Christianity and just live life for the moment as we please.

 But what if it’s true? What then are the consequences for those who don’t believe? What are they missing out on?

Even as Christians, when times are tough, we can have little niggling doubts and wonder if it’s true. Is God really there?

Sign outside church

The permanent sign outside the church reads: “What if it’s true?”

Simple as that.

For those who don’t believe God exists; that Jesus exists; that the world has hope.

“What if it’s true?”
