Bury that Seed

“Foolish one, what you sow is not made alive unless it dies. And what you sow,
you do not sow that body that shall be, but mere grain--perhaps wheat or some other grain.
But God gives it a body as He pleases, and to each seed its own body.”

You Will Survive
Date: 21 Sep 2014

The storm at sea was so fierce that the ship was going down. On board was a prisoner destined to come before a Roman Emperor. The prisoner was no common criminal. He was charged for preaching the Grace of God. Those on the ship feared for their lives. The Chief Prison Warden (Centurion) responsible for the prisoners on board, contemplated executing them in fear of them surviving and escaping. Paul the Apostle spoke with authority and clarity assuring them that they would all survive the ordeal. For a Biblical account consider Acts 27:14-44

They were shipwrecked on an island and not a single soul was lost. The apostle was handed over to Caesar and history tells us that he was beheaded for his faith in Rome. The spike in beheadings in Iraq by Islamic Jihadists has sent a cold chill down the collective spine of citizens of every hue. Could such a barbaric practise spread to other parts of the world? We would be very naïve to think that this scourge will not affect other nations. Maybe it’s time for every believer to think deeply about the challenges facing our faith as our world contemplates such heinous acts.

Please pray for Christians being persecuted for their faith and for the peace of Jerusalem. God’s promise is that we will survive the storm.

In times like these we need a Saviour.
