Business as usual…

Business as usual…

I was chatting with a gentleman today and I asked the question, "Have you seen God do anything for you?"  He said, "Yes".   He had almost died and God brought him through all the suffering.  At one point he didn't ever know anyone.  Thankfully, God had restored him to enjoy a good quality of life.  

I then asked him what he thought the point of his suffering was all about.  He said he didn't know, but he was back in the pulpit in record time.   Obviously, God was in the middle of his rapid recovery.  But I am confused.  Have we become to complacent in our faith that we don't search after the deeper things of the faith. 

Shouldn't we ask the tough question, "Why? or better yet, "How might this catastrophe draw me closer to Christ?"  I would find it particularly troublesome if I suffered and did not find myself any closer to God. It's doubtful business as usual is pleasing to God…

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
