“In order to be equipped for what God calls us to do, we need to know two subjects in great depth: God and the world.”
“In both subjects, appearances are deceiving.”
“When we look at these two subjects with unaided eyes, we often underestimate God and overestimate evil.”
“We don’t see what God is doing and conclude that he is doing nothing.”
“We see everything that evil is doing and think it’s in control.”
The Message – Eugene Peterson
The quotation above is from “The Message” a translation by Eugene Peterson. The quotation is written by Mr. Peterson. I used it in my sermon Sunday night and some have asked for a copy of the quote.
How do we see God? In the world He has created. In the Book He has written. By coming to know His Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Coming to know God and Jesus will give us joy and peace in a world filled with troubles. Come to know Him. Spend much time in His Word.
