Best Not to Hinder God

May 15, 2022


Christians continue to struggle with how to engage the issues of our times. We are reluctant to let go of the traditions and views and methods of the past. It took a global pandemic to shake us out of our apathy. The world is different now and we are challenged to live in new and exciting ways. Only when we relinquish the past and open ourselves to new ideas will we be able to grasp the new thing that God is doing. So, let’s take a lesson from Peter and entertain a new idea, go a new way, or try something new. Let’s be silent and engage in prayerful reflection, seeking what God is doing next. Then let the church erupt into praise and thanksgiving, asking, “Who are we that we could hinder God?” Amen.
