Just Goin’ With the Flow?

30 Jul

. . .  in which you previously walked according to this worldly age, according to the ruler of the atmospheric domain, the spirit  now working in the disobedient.  We too all previously lived among them in our fleshly desires, carrying out the inclinations of our flesh and thoughts, and by nature we were children under wrath, as the others were also.But God, who is abundant in mercy, because of His great love  that He had for us,  made us alive with the Messiah even though we were dead in trespasses. By grace you are saved!  Ephesians 2:2-5 HCSB

More on Mike’s recent messages:  As sinners we have a tendency to “go with the flow” whether as unsaved sinners or saved sinners.  (I’m talking about practice and not position here.)  As we talked about a few days ago, we have two sources upon which to draw.  When we draw upon God we are firmly rooted next to the river.  When we draw upon other resources (ourselves, others) we go with the flow.

I read a Young Adult book named Peeled last night by one of my favorite YA authors, Joan Bauer.  It deals with how contagious fear is and can spread like a virus.  I don’t want to spoil the plot line, but I highly recommend it as a read aloud for your intermediate age children.
