How often do you feel busy? Many times we are hurried from one thing to the next. God wants to encourage us to take the time and focus our attention on the “one needed thing”. Is there any security in our future? At a time when the sinking sands of a worldwide economic freefall fill the airwaves and rattle our nerves, it is good to know there is a firm foundation on which to plant our feet. That foundation is our rock, Jesus Christ, our hope in the midst of the housing crisis, credit crunch and plant closures.
In his new book, Alive in Christ, Brent Sloss aptly reminds us of the one thing needed….to abide in the vine. In frantically busy and uncertain times, it is comforting to know that God is in control of our circumstances when we abide in Him, turn from our sins and fill our hearts with His Word.
