something else just isn’t cutting it

I heard a great quote from Mark Driscoll, who is a pastor in Seattle Washington, talking about God and what some people make as their god. It runs along with our financial crisis that America is having right now and how people are getting ready for a total meltdown of everything that is America.

People are freaking out because their god is money and it died and hasn’t risen from the dead like My God!

“As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.” 1Tim. 6:17 Our hope needs not to be in money or the economy or anything that is of this world, cause its going to die, and rot.  That is just reality!  Our hope needs to be in the creator of everything, Thee Almighty God, and trust that he will take care of us, cause you know what… Jesus, (God), rose from the dead after being in the grave for THREE days.  No one can say they have done that or someone else has, only the God of the Bible has defeated death and He will defeat everything when Jesus comes back to earth to bring God’s children to Him.  Let us rejoice and have hope in HIM today!
