05.05.19 A Quiet Thought, by Bro. Bob Adams

Our culture screams with fear.

We are constantly told that sure disaster is ahead, attended by pictures of disasters in faraway places.

We are warned to buy or not buy certain products and take certain actions or our future is probably doomed.

All this makes fear a dominant factor in this present day.

Unless we guard against it the fear that runs our culture will run our lives.

Even though we sing about trusting Jesus we may panic like those who have no great, living Savior.

The fear of the Lord is the only appropriate fear in a believer’s life. This is not a fear that terrorizes us, makes us cringe in the corner, or slump in despair.

Fear of the Lord is a deep trembling in the soul, often beyond words, that comes from seeing some measure of the Lord’s infinite power, holiness, and love.

It is being overwhelmed with His glory.

It is the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos falling down like a dead man when seeing Jesus in all His glory.

Let us fear the Lord and live boldly! Grace to you.

A quiet thought for this Sunday morning, March 24th, by Rev. Bob Adams

Are you a good person? I am sure you are! But what does it mean when we say someone is “good?”

Sometimes we mean the person performs at a superior level. He is a good singer.

Sometimes we mean the person is kind. She is not harsh or cruel, but sensitive to others.

Often we mean the person is morally true. This good person behaves in ways that are clean and right.

Is this what we mean when we say God is good? Our Heavenly Father is perfect in what He does, kind beyond our understanding, and morally pure.

But these definitions of “good” yet fall short of the core meaning His goodness.

The goodness of the Father is a profound care for wayward children that moves Him to pour out His life to save them in body, soul, and spirit.

He is more than perfect in His acts, more than nice in His demeanor, more than morally pure.

He is good because He infinitely and always pours Himself out for us.

Let us sing with hearts overflowing with gratitude, “God is so good . . . God is so good . . . God is so good, He’s so good to me!”

Rev. Bob Adams was our interim pastor at Trinity Baptist Church for two years.  His ministry at our church was filled with so many blessings!  It is an honor to share from time to time his quiet thought with ya’ll.

Ya’ll have a Blessed Week and Yes, God Is Sooooo Good!
