Sometimes it takes huge inconveniences to get mankind to slow down and consider that the world doesn’t revolve around our every move. The ash from that volcano last week made that perfectly clear by stopping mankind in his tracks—world leaders, businesses, and everyone else came screeching to a halt.
And guess what? A slow down will occur again, by another natural or man-made disaster, or the granddaddy of them all; the day of Judgment! (Acts 17:31). On that great day, all men will stop their busy lives to stand before Jesus Christ and be judged for the deeds done in life (Romans 14:9-12; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Matthew 25:31-46).
So that volcano taught us much, and we need to reflect on the fact that nothing keeps going uninterrupted (not even those batteries on television). We need to think about these things (1 Thessalonians 5:1-10; James 4:13-15; Luke 12:16-20).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
