Joy, Peace, and Jesus

 

This is "Wild Bill".  I met Wild Bill in this dumpster downtown and had an great conversation with him.  He told me that at one time he had a couple of houses and drove around in a $150,000 car.  And then he realize his life was empty.  He said this to me, "Craig, I walked away from everything only to gain…everything."

He makes $20 an hour recycling stuff.  He has joy, peace, and Jesus.

God is Faithful

God Will Never Give You More Than You Can Handle
Paul tells us: "God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength but with your testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it" (1 Corinthians 10:13). Over time that promise has become abbreviated to "God will never give you more than you can handle." Like many others, I've derived comfort from these words, though I know God does not "give" me loss, pain and grief.
Like most bumper-sticker theology, this promise appeals to my concerns about myself and my well-being. If I take Paul's words and God's faithfulness seriously, I must also look beyond my self-centeredness to the pain and severe testing others endure. What of the hungry, the abused, the victims of racism? What of the people of the world who have known no other life than a daily existence of war and terror? Could it be that God could use me to provide a "way out" for the hopeless? Could I help others handle life?

A better bumper sticker might be: "God is faithful."
