“If there were no thunder, men would have little fear of lightning.”
It is quite stormy outside. It has been raining off and on for the past few hours where I am at today. Kind of nice to see that liquid sunshine fall from the sky.
Then I heard and felt it – thunder, lots and lots of thunder. It was so forceful that it shook the house.
This brought me back to the time when the Israelites stood before Mt. Sinai listening to the voice of God for the first time.
The thunder and lightning scared them so bad that they didn’t want to hear directly from God. They backed away as they thought they were going to die.
There weren’t, of course. But God sent them a strong message. Don’t take Our relationship for granted. You serve a powerful God.
Sometimes, Jesus believers take His love for granted. His mercy becomes expected. And His grace demanded.
Slow down my brothers and sisters. You or the things you do are simply not that important. Your relationship with Jesus is. Don’t make Him thunder into your life to get you to realize it. As out of love, He will.
