My wife and I lived in Scotland where the average annual rain fall is more than 4 times than that of Seattle. While living there, we saw rain most days. We saw it do so in some unique ways: down, up, and sideways. In fact, we ditched the umbrella because the wind often turned it inside out, rendering it useless. We experienced liquid sunshine as freezing, misting or bucketing. We literally had a lifetime of the stuff in our 3-year stay. I frequently found time to ponder and muse about my feelings for pre- cipitation, especially while caught in it. Rain feels better when you think of it as thawed snowflakes. It is a natural equalizer, as rain is no respecter of per- sons. From the richest man on Wall Street, to the homeless man beside a wall on a street, all will get caught in the rain. This is a beautiful reminder every day that man is intrinsically no better and no worse than his neighbor. We are all in the same boat simply floating on raindrops that are holding hands. Rain is shown as a great equalizer in the scriptures: “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust (Matthew 5:43-45). The first time we understand that God sent the rain, it was because of the unjust. God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water. Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to him (1 Peter 3:20-22). God decided to cleanse the earth from sin through a flood. He chooses to save us from sin today through the saving waters of baptism (v.21). Salvation is obviously not the water alone, just like the water did not save Noah alone. His obedience in building the ark and the water saved him from the surrounding sin. Today there are those who are just and unjust and every knee will bow to the sender of the rain. May we think of this as we go out into the elements this week. May we strive to be an example to the just and the unjust. There is a reminder in the rain. A note from the Harp EldersDownFront 8:00AMDarnellSelf 10:30AMSkipMcCurry 5:00PMDougScruggs

One other passage I want all to consider is Hosea 4:11 where Hosea warns that alcohol can take away our understand- ing. “Wine and new wine take away the understand- ing” (RSV). But the dangers of alcohol are not just in what it can do to the physical body as bad as that is. The real danger is what alcohol can do to our souls! Those who are practicing alcoholics cannot enter into the king- dom of God. Paul, in writing to the churches in Corinth and in Galatia warned of this danger stating that neither “thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Cor. 6:10), and “envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God” (Gal. 5:21). In today’s world where drinking is so prevalently abused, these warnings from the Bible should take on added force. Surely the only defendable Christian posi- tion is that of total abstinence from alcoholic beverages. But I know that there will always be people who will ob- ject to this idea of not drinking any alcoholic beverages. I know that many people have used various verses from the Bible to try to “prove” that drinking is alright, and I want to consider some of them now. Jesus Turned Water into Wine This happened at a wedding feast in Cana of Gali- lee and it was the first miracle that Jesus did. He had commanded that six water pots (that were used for the act of purifying) be filled to the brim with water. When this was done He commanded that some of the contents be drawn out and given to the ruler of the feast. After drink- ing it the ruler proclaimed that it was the best wine! A Catholic in commenting on this passage, said, “Jesus was the bartender for the wedding feast in Cana.” How- ever, there is no evidence that this was an alcoholic drink that Jesus had created. The Greek word that is trans- lated as “wine” is oinos. This word was used to refer to both the alcoholic drink and to grape juice. The fact that we today use the word “wine” to refer to an alcoholic drink does not mean that the Jews did the same. We cannot impose our definitions upon them. Words may change in their meanings. In the King James Version of 1 Thess. 4:15 Paul said, “For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.” The English word “prevent” in this verse did not mean then what it means today. Today it means “to keep from happening.” In the English of 1611 it meant “come before, or precede.” The word wine was used in Isaiah 65:8 of the juice “while it is still in the cluster.” Area Wide Singing February 1, 2019 7 PM Deerfoot Church of Christ Please invite your friends and neighbors.
