Well its a new year and boy is today ever a cold one ! I looked out the back of my house this morning at the thermometer and it was below minus 20 !! Factoring the wind chill registered such frigid temperatures. Which reminds me that God has a great sense of humor. Whats that you say? What does this the crazy cold temperatures have to do with God having a sense of humor?
In the news recently has been the report of a Russian ship stuck in the ice in Antarctica. So a Chinese ice breaker came to free her up but guess what happened? Yep, the rescuing ship also is stuck ! It’s also reported that an Australian ship on its way to help was turned back by great snow and freezing winds !!. But what was the Russian ship doing there in the first place? It was carrying a load of scientists studying the effects of global warming !!! Since science is supposed to be about observing data, seems to me they got their share to check out this trip. And what they didn’t see was “global warming”, quite the contrary !!! Man can surmise their theories and concoct all kinds of ideas in the name of “science” but when they reject the existence of God, sooner or later they will come face to face with the facts !
The Psalmist wrote, “He Who sits in the heavens shall laugh ; the Lord shall have them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure.” (Ps.2:4-5). When so called intelligent men reject the facts: that God is real, that He is in charge of this universe, that salvation only comes through Christ then its not man who will have the last laugh but God !
How about us as Christians? God speaks a TON in the New Testament about the local church but how actively engaged are you in one? How supportive of it are you? When the Lord’s Day arrives, do you make the excuse it’s the only day you have to sleep in or do you start your week worshipping Him with others in His house as He commands? God has His ways of exposing our foolishness and letting all know He sits on the throne whether we want Him to or not ! It is best to follow His Word so you aren’t stranded in the ways or mire or ice of this old world !! Id’ rather laugh with God than be laughed at by Him, how about you?
