6-28-2017 God’s Work Is Unchanged

“Consider the work of God; For who can make straight what He has made crooked?” (Ecclesiastes 7:13 NKJV). In the Creation, God: “divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day and the darkness He called Night” (Genesis 1:4-5); He caused “the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear,” making “Earth” and “Seas” (Genesis 1:9-10); He “let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself” (Genesis 1:11); He made “great sea creatures and every living thing that moves,” “and every winged bird according to its kind” (Genesis 1:20-21). “Evolution” has no explanation for these distinctions, and no “scientist” has discovered any contradictory fact! God’s Creation Work still stands as written! Humans have not, and cannot, change it

For the past couple of weeks, I have been reading, “The Witness of Preaching,” by Thomas Long for a homiletics class at Heritage Christian University. I’ve two questions that may interest the preachers on this blog. In Long’s book, he characterizes preachers in three ways: herald, pastor and storyteller/poet. Which kind of preacher are you? Do you believe a preacher could be all three in some way?

The True Test Of Civilization

The true test of civilization is not the census, nor the size of cities, nor the crops – no, but the kind of man the country turns out.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist, philosopher and poet (1803-1882)

There are two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there.

Indira Gandhi, Indian prime minister (1917-1984)
