Approaching 100-degrees today and after reading a extreme-weather safety report online, I feel compelled to do a little COOL weather -vs- spiritual walk compare/contrast for all you readers. Be blessed.
-During this extreme heat, the most important thing is to keep cool and avoid additional stress on your body.
–During these extreme times, the most important thing is to keep near to the cross and avoid additional stress on your soul.
Here are some important tips:
Plan for persecution!
Praising God should be our nature. Our reasons to praise are unable to even be numbered. We praise Him for all He’s done, but also simply for all He is and forever will be. By far, there is NOTHING cooler than SALVATION! The fact that we have a chance at it is truly a testament of God’s love toward us…His grace…His desire for us to be at His side forever. Satan hates God and us and wants with everything in Him to distract us from the prize because he desires to torment us and those we love, for eternity. Yes, it’s that deep! So the above compare/contrast was a simplistic how-to, if you will.
We make sure we’re prepared for so many what-if situations of this world…as we should. From heatwaves to terrorism to house fires to abduction; we never want to be unprepared for what could be. Well, as believers, we know FOR SURE that we will all die one day. We know for sure that Christ will return one day. We know for sure that Christians all over the world are facing persecution and that it will intensify as the end approaches. So, let’s treat our walk seriously. Be Bold & Fabulous about it! Let’s get, be, and STAY prepared for all that is to come, and do it all to the King!
