Listen: John North presents “Time With God”. (Airing 6am weekdays on Hope 103.2 & Inspire Digital.)
All this week, John North says the Christian life is not an activity, it’s a living relationship with God and all of the activities of life flow from that relationship. Like any relationship, there will be difficult challenges but that’s when we learn deeper truths about God and his faithfulness.
The earth was rocked at the sound of his voice from the mountain, but now he has promised,
“Once and for all I will not only shake the systems of the world,
but also the unseen powers in the heavenly realm!”
Now this phrase “once and for all” clearly indicates the final removal of things that are shaking, that is, the old order, so only what is unshakable will remain. Since we are receiving our rights to an unshakable kingdom we should be extremely thankful and offer God the purest worship that delights his heart as we lay down our lives in absolute surrender, filled with awe. For our God is a holy, devouring fire!
