Hey Fans and Friends of the weak & the few!
Our latest EP will be available this coming Easter – April 17th 2022
“All The Earth Is Waiting”
To be clear, we don’t mean that all the earth is waiting for the release of the EP, but “All The Earth Is Waiting” is the name of the EP.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, you might ask, “Waiting for what?” The Bible records in Romans chapter 8, beginning in verse 18:
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.”
All creation has been subjected to the curse and consequence of sin brought on by our disobedience in the garden of Eden. The earth was once a paradise beyond belief, but now, though there is still much beauty and bounty, happiness and rejoicing, we know there is far more sadness, sorrow, corruption, and depression around us. In many ways, there is an over-abundant sting and devastation on all that we daily see and hear.
We need not point the finger at any particular country, institution, people-group, individual, place, or thing; we mostly can just shake our heads and acknowledge – we live in a fallen world. Consider alone the many cataclysmic events we see and fear in nature – often referred to as: “Acts of God”. The destruction of tornadoes, hurricanes, devastating floods, fires, and earthquakes – no one can deny the multitude of tragedies triggered by such events. Deep down inside, we all know there is something far better we long for.
So, what is “all creation” waiting for? Scripture tells us we are waiting for, “the revealing of the sons of God.” You might ask, “What does that even mean?”
Earlier in the same chapter of Romans we read:
“14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.”
When Christ was sent to earth by God to rescue us from our sins, scripture teaches us that those who would place their trust in Christ would receive the Spirit of adoption as “sons of God.” Those are the ones adopted into his family and his kingdom, which is his church. They are the body of Christ, and all the earth is waiting to see them emerge. You may not know it, but all the earth is waiting to see you seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; to see you find your place in his kingdom; to see you being discipled and discipling others; to see you generously giving of your time, energy, efforts, and finances to serve the purpose of God in your generation.
Come and allow the preached word of God to make you, “crushed grain” that can be added to the loaf of heavenly bread – broken to feed the lost world around us.
