Pictures With A Message

Edition - Number 3 - 5th February 2002

This weeks cartoon shouldn't need to much explaining - most of us try our best to avoid a spiritual wilderness but if we spent our time only enjoying mountain top experiences we would never grow into the people the Lord wants us to become or learn things the Lord wants to know.
The Wilderness has the capacity to reveal what is truly in our hearts so we may learn what the Bible says "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish it's work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything" James 1:2-4
Wilderness experiences are not pleasant but if we learn to embrace them joyfully according to Gods will, it can be the means of great blessing and encouragement to many.

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11

Whatever the wilderness experience we may go through, may we learn to embrace them joyfully, becoming more Christlike - fully submitted to doing Gods will.
