Chaff flying in the wind . . .

Chaff in the Wind

Psalm 1:3-4

The faithful one is like a tree planted near streams of water, which bears fruit in its season, and whose leaves never wither.  In the same way, everything the faithful one does will prosper.  This is not true of the wicked, for they are like chaff that the wind blows away. 

We have been counseled to remain apart from those who delight in evil; we have been urged to maintain a close relationship with God.  Jesus, the Word Among Us, reminds us that we must do more than love those who love us; we must pray for those who wish us harm.

God says: I know that evil frightens you and this is as it should be.  But will you do more than avoid evil for me?  Will you pray for those planted in dry places?  Will you intercede for those who wither and die?  Will you think of them and pray for them as they fly like chaff in the wind?  Will you call them back to me?

Jesus tells us that much is expected of those who have been given much.  (Luke 12:48)  He says the same to us.  Jesus asks the man he cured of demons to return home and tell how much God has done for him.  (Luke 8:39He asks the same of us.  The resurrected Christ reminds Peter to feed the flock.  (John 21:15-25He also reminds us.

Type the word chaff in the blog search bar and examine how we might be chaff that flies before the wind or the word of God with Christ.
