How are you coping with the arrival of summer? Amazed that it is happening?
Now that it is here, are you struggling with the heat? There is a kind of imposed lethargy with higher temperatures, and sometimes it is hard to adapt. It is a little bit like arriving in a different climate, and needing to let your body acclimatise.
You can’t shrug it off by attitude, and you might even feel you can’t possibly cope – but you do. If you don’t fight against it, you can even get used to desert living. Patience is important, and perseverance.
But what about living in grace? It is the normal weather in the kingdom of God.
Are you aware of it? Are you acclimatising to the reality of God in your everyday world?
I say acclimatising rather than acclimatised, because salvation is something that is happened, but is always working its way out.
May the weather of the kingdom of Heaven, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
