At The Crossroads

When I was a young father and Autumn would spread her colorful carpet across the hills and mountains of my home, I would often load my kids into the car and embark on a Fall foliage tour.

We would take the back roads and look at the leaves shining in the sunlight.  There would be glittering golds, blazing reds, and outrageous oranges, sometimes all on the same tree.  We would drive and stop and look and be in awe of the beauty of this world and the glory of God’s creation.

God is Speaking But Are We Listening?

Many today are still wondering whether God still speaks to us. Some church denominations even believe we are no longer in the dispensation of God speaking to His people and that no one should expect direct communication from God to His people.

I read an article from a Theologian who believes that God no longer speaks to us because His word is already given to us in the Bible. He based his argument on the fact that God spoke in Biblical times because as at that time, the work of redemption was in progress and therefore God needed to speak to man at various times.

Now I am not as knowledgable as that historian but I know that even after Jesus went back to heaven, God spoke to the Apostles in various ways apart from his written word. Acts 10: 9-16, Acts 13:2.

If God does not speak to us today what effect would that have on us? This was brought home to me recently when I came across a story told about a mighty battleship caught in a vicious storm.
