God’s Gentle Whisper
When I was younger I loved the story of Elijah on Mt. Carmel. I would imagine how incredibly powerful it must have felt to see the fire fall from the sky and completely humble the opponents of God. Now that I’m older I’m more drawn to the next chapter where Elijah hears the gentle whisper of God on Mt. Horeb. I once wanted to do something spectacular for God! Now, I sometimes find myself just trying to survive.
The world is too big and I am too small. The problems are greater than I ever imagined them to be in my youth. A big splash today is but a puddle tomorrow and then it just evaporates. Our problems will not be solved even if fire fell from heaven. Perhaps this awareness puts us where God has wanted us all along.
Instead of attempting the big splash what if we all just committed ourselves to living holy lives and loving people? What if only 50 of us did that? What if only 10? What if it was only you and I who decided that for 2013 we would live the gospel in whatever situation we found ourselves? My guess is that we would find the power of the gospel to be far richer and deeper than we ever imagined.
