Given the substantial evidence of Scripture to the contrary, the burden of proof is on those who argue people in heaven are unconcerned with and unaware of what is happening on earth.

The Jews go into captivity after years of sin and idolatry. Surprisingly, the prophetic message changes. God promises them His new covenant. Jeremiah proclaims that God will write His laws on their hearts and minds and that they will know Him. Even in their darkest hour, Israel discovers that God make a beautiful life out of a broken one.

Job's suffering and subsequent restoration teach us three important truths: Forgiveness is worth asking for, justice is worth waiting for, and there is no mercy without justice. God sees Job's heart and uses him to restore his friends who have so misrepresented God's intentions. What emerges is a picture of the cross -- God's justice satisfied and mercy revealed.

We cannot afford to be lukewarm Christians. Paul teaches in Romans 12:11 that serving the Lord means 1) seeing the Lord as worth more than what the appetites offer; and serving the Lord means 2) seeing the Lord's approval as more valuable than the approval of man and acting on it; and serving the Lord means 3) believing that he has died for us and fulfilled the law for us...

A sovereign God governs the affairs of men. He is still seated on His throne. Are you holidazed, confused, frustrated? Things have happened this year that perhaps will never be explained.

Scripture: Jeremiah 29:11-11
“This is not my life.” “Those are not my children.” “That is not my husband.” Have you ever looked around at your life and thought any of these things?
