Have you ever wondered how have the Jewish people survived the many spiritual and political hurricanes in their history? The key is found in their response to the gift God gave them, the Word of God! They hid it into their culture and they became known as the People of the Book. By gifting it to the world, they also became the very foundation of our Western society today. We can also become durable and influential as we learn to hide God’s Word in our hearts and in our lives!
Think about the following: the stock market, the political climate, race relations and family relationships. They all have one thing in common. So often, they are unsettled. We just want things to settle down. We long for a time, a solid place, where things are settled in spite the uncertainties of the world around us. Jesus Christ came so that we could have a faith that settles our hearts in an unsettled world.
