Reading or watching the news can quickly become a depressing experience. One writer, describing an international conflict which seems permanently unsolvable, wrote of the wisdom of pessimism – to not expect that things will get better between the two hostile factions.
Human beings realize we have so much potential to make life better, and yet so often we seem incapable of harnessing that capacity to accomplish anything meaningful. In our frustration, we begin to attack God.
“If God really cared, he would do something about the injustice, violence and greed which dominate our existence.”
“Is God just a casual observer? Doesn’t he care about what is going on?”
“Maybe he really can’t do anything to make a difference after all.”
One thing we don’t have to worry about is that God is not doing anything. What should concern us very much is that we don’t recognize what he is doing. There is a lesser known holiday of the Christian Church called Pentecost. Even some Christians aren’t really sure of why it is significant. But if you are sincerely interested in what God is doing in our world in the year 2021, you’d do well to give some time to understanding what happened on that day and what it means to us at the present.
What it really comes down to is priorities. What we think is important clashes with what matters most to God.
If you want to know what God is doing today, why it is important, and what it means to you, join us for one of our worship services. It might rub you the wrong way at first, but if you let it sink in, the benefits will never end.
Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
