Local weather is calling for snow… Again!! Frankly, one good snow every two or three years is about normal for this Southeastern region. A couple weeks ago we had a moderate sleet/snow mix, so maybe a big one is in order… Still, this winter has been very cold and not very ‘nice.’
In our family Bible reading this morning we were discussing a passage that touches on the whole weather issue… In fact, daily, the weather that we concern ourselves with should serve as a continual reminder of something very important! Heaven and earth are still here!!
Pretty simple, really. Here’s how it works…
Snowing? Heaven and earth are still here!
Raining? heaven and earth are still here!
Sun shining? Heaven and earth are still here!
Why might this be important?
Well, at least three times in Scripture we are told that God’s law, His Torah, will last until heaven and earth pass away! The most famous, of course, is Yeshua saying this in Matthew 5:18,
“Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. 18 For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not [a]the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.
After discussing this as part of our study this morning, I found a brand new video by a friend and former Baptist pastor, Lex Meyer, expressing exactly the same thing! Here it is:
Daily, as we wake and see/smell/taste/feel/hear the world around us, we should be reminded that ‘heaven and earth are still here, therefore, God’s Torah is still in force!’
