Life’s earthquakes shake us because we have believed and lived as if the world is a certain way. But life’s earthquakes reveal the truth. They show us where our fault lines are. They show us where things are not as they seem, where WE are not the people we have believed ourselves to be. Life’s earthquakes can shake us to our core. It’s hard, but only then will we be able to get to the bottom of things. Only then can we see what our real foundations are. The edifices fall, but when Jesus rescues us, he builds for us an even richer and better life.
Sermon from The Table on 12/9/18.
