Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

I'm convinced that today is not all that different than yesterday, and yesterday two thousand years ago, at least in certain respects. The joys and sorrows of today are much the same as yesterday, and tomorrow for that matter.

You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that burning with fire...
But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God...You have come to Jesus...that speaks a better word...
- Hebrews 12:18-24 excerpts TNIV

Like yesterday, there are oodles of gods to choose from today. So choose your god(s) wisely. Hebrews urges us to turn from the gods of our own creation, a most popular concept in 2009, and unto the God revealed in Jesus Christ.

The good news is that our God is not a rock or stone carved by human hands, not an inanimate object. But our God in Jesus Christ is a being, even Jesus. Rocks don't have voices, but God does. That's a better word, says Hebrews. That's good news.
