Good Monday Morning it’s June 7, 2021, I pray all is well: Today we will finish up Psalm 145:1-150:6 with my usual daily reflections. I have decided to finish up a little different than I normally do and for good reason, last night something came to me. So I have been trying to formulate something to say ever since early this morning and it’s clear I need to just let it flow and not overthink the message.
“God didn’t create the imperfect.”
“God doesn’t cause the imperfect.”
“But God works through the imperfect.”
-Israel And The Church- Amir Tsarfati
Our world is a sinking ship just like the titanic! The movie Titanic was great but the story has a message that can help us close out the Book of Psalm. Why is our world sinking like the titanic? Well it’s simple we are divided by everything and we haven’t taken our foot off the gas yet. Our world always believes what they are told just like the sheep in the Titanic; they believed the ship was unsinkable. America along with the rest of the world have the same view that our lives and Institutions are unsinkable. At some point everything sinks doesn’t it if you take on enough water well that’s life in general. We are all a sinking ship. Some of us are better at treading water than others but in the end if we give up we sink.
Eventually we all have to get off our sinking ship and reverse course if not we take on water that could sink us in the end. Today’s quote from Amir Tsarfati is spot on with today’s message. That’s why I decided to use the Titanic to push my message forward. See both Rose and Jack did not create the situation they find themselves in; they were two imperfect people. Imperfect people tossed into an imperfect situation that in the end they had to use extreme faith and trust when they barely knew each other. King David was thrown into an imperfect situation due to the sins of King Saul, and that led to a spiritual battle between the two. David even though he lived on a sinking ship he kept his faith and love in God; that led him overcoming his battles.
Sin is our curse in an imperfect world, and sin is our sinking ship. In order to remove ourselves from this sinking ship it takes extreme faith along with courage. God’s power is INFINITE so we can conquer our sinking ships through him with faith and love. This is where selfless service comes in just like CHRIST, and Mr. Jack in the story sometimes in order to make a difference; it’s clear we must deny ourselves.
When I’m treading water on my sinking ship I like to read 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things have passed away; behold, all things are to become new. For me this is true even though struggles remain I’m no longer sinking, but to keep my ship from sinking I must stay the new course and never turn back. Finishing up Psalm it's clear our message is to praise God and be happy. Even though we tread water with sin God will always leads us in the right direction if we keep our trust and love in him. So if are an imperfect person thrown into imperfect situation, be that imperfect individual with love, honesty and selfless service full of humility' maybe that can make a difference.
“I chose to push forward on my current course IMPERFECT in JESUS CHRIST, because I know turning back my SHIP will SINK and so will my chances of receiving ETERNAL LIFE!”- Jared W. Campbell
