Vicar's Corner

VICAR'S CORNER

I remember 30 years ago as a Christian involved in business networks, I used to attend international conferences where we discussed world finances and politics and even conspiracy theories, and books about world crises including plague and economic collapse. Many then saw signs they thought signified the end of the age and the return of the Messiah. Palm Sunday is when we celebrate Jesus coming as King, as He will do again one day. We are told in the Bible to live each day as if our last, so we constantly review what is most important in our lives and re-focus. We never know when either the world’s or our own last day is upon us. One thing the crisis has taken away for many is complacency. Suddenly the secure pattern of life they had has changed. People say, “it’s a good job we don’t know what the future holds.” The most accurate proven and trusted predictor of the future is the Bible and it contains the greatest ever written advice about finding peace and love. We should not be panicking but praying, repenting and putting our trust in God. It isn’t showering God with your persistent demands that brings miracles, but your deepening faith and trust in Him.     Ian

 

“ Forty Reasons to Trust the Bible" is a new book co-authored by Dr Martin Johnson, who often visits Gosberton and is known to some of you. We recommend this book (available on Amazon and from good bookshops) as a thrilling way to discover the Bible!” Click here to read more. Also available from the Vicarage at a discounted price of £10.
