We are incurably curious about the spiritual realm. Although our imaginations tend to overrun truth don’t ever doubt the presence of angels, for they are about us and above us. And, who knows, maybe even within one or two of us.
No one will ever know how much energy the human race has wasted through worry. In our breakneck-paced culture, worry has reached emotional epidemic levels. We are the most anxious among all of God’s created beings. We have numerous phobias. Our diseases are often emotionally induced. We can trace many of our battles with common problems, such as insomnia, obesity, alcohol and drug addition, pessimism, and headaches to deep-seated unrest in our souls. What nervous, tense creatures we are! Surely God did not design our bodies to endure such self-imposed stress.
Epitaphs are strange things! Some of them are profound. Most of them are brief. We’ve all read tragic epitaphs…and even a few that make us chuckle! In his immortal work on the martyrs done in the sixteenth century, John Fox listed some of the epitaphs that appeared in the catacombs beneath Rome. He found a few of them etched into the stones of Christians’ graves. Fox found other epitaphs on non-Christian graves. The difference is remarkable!
There is a big difference between prophets and politicians. Politicians act in a way to please their constituents. Prophets act in a way to please God. In the Bible prophets often stood alone. They spoke God’s truth and risked losing their lives for it.
