“[H]is Son, the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power”– Hebrews 1:1-3

1957 Plymouth Belvedere

In 1957 a grand experiment was conducted in Tulsa Oklahoma. A new Plymouth Belvedere was entombed in a “time capsule”, sprayed with cosmoline, wrapped in plastic, and buried in a concrete tomb, wheels off the ground.

What did they find fifty (50) years later? A heap of rust. Things deteriorate unless they are maintained. This world world be the same way were it not for Christ. As the Bible states,

“The earth is filled with your creatures. All of them depend on you … when you take away your breath, they die and go back to the dust from which they came. But when you give them breath, they are created; you give new life to the earth.” – Psalm 104:24-30 GNT

God did not spin the world off and forget it. Christ sustains it by his powerful word. This is not the power of some angel; he has never been an angel. Jesus, our risen Lord, is the one who has always sustained all things by the word of his power and we shall always be his special creation.

We need to stop looking at how big and powerful our problems are and focus on how big and powerful our Savior is.

God is At Work

“The trees …the birds … the wild goats … the conies …. all the beasts of the forest do creep forth ….The young lions roar … and seek their meat from God …

Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

God is at work at work!

Faithfully doing an honest day’s work at an honest job is spiritual, don’t let the routineness make you loose site of that!

“Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance – Colossians 3:24 (Message)
