OST vehicles have a number of warning signs to alert you to potential problems. I remember my old college car that had a “check engine” light that I learned to blissfully ignore all the way until the engine locked up while driving down the interstate. Similarly, my current vehicle has a service light that comes on when I need an oil change. I sometimes ignore that for a couple weeks as well.
Can you remember a time in your Christian life when you were closer to Jesus than you are now? Maybe you want to change, but where do you begin? Consider Jesus’ breakfast conversation with Peter: it could change your life!
Paradise is a mere speed bump on the road to redemption. It only took the human race three chapters to ruin everything. By the sixth chapter of Genesis, God was ready to start over with one man, Noah, and his family. At the end of the Bible we see a vision of paradise restored. But most of the Bible is about the messy in between, living life in a fallen world while we wait with hope for our returning King.
