We Are Not Retreating, We are Advancing to the Rear! - God at Work in All of Life
Video from Cannon Press
In our finite limitations as humans we often think we can do more than we can. Without doubt our daily life is totally dependent on God. Today may be our last. The person of the Holy Spirit and Christ are active in our lives. Our culture, our technology in this post-modern, post-Christian world tells us we can set the world on fire and go, go , go!!
In this video Doug Wilson makes the point that Christianity in life and society does not always advance like a rocket. If you want proof of that read the book of Acts. The Apostles had a difficult time to say the least and ultimately died for Christ. The reality of ups and downs in our human society is present to even us Christians.
Doug Wilson paraphrases a quote: "The Kingdom of God advances form triumph to triumph with all of them cleverly disguised as disasters."
Our human viewpoint is shortsighted and flawed. Everyone of us who are wringing our hands over the current state of our nation, politics and the like, have you become "O ye of little faith" ?
Romans 8:31 31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
