Swimming Upstream

by

Some Christians believe if God wants us to do a certain thing, he will open a door for us; if God doesn’t want us to do it, he will shut it. This sounds simple and true, but many times it is not. There are times when God calls us to walk through adversity. Moses discovered this when he was asked in retirement to go back to Egypt and free the Hebrews from slavery. Jesus called us to love our enemies, forgive those who hurt us 7×70 times, and much more. In a message titled “Swim Upstream,” we will contemplate God’s tendency to not go with the flow but to struggle upstream against the current of life.

The Christmas story deals with the issue of giving up. Zechariah and Elizabeth were close to giving up in their old age when a surprising event changed everything. Instead their waiting paid off.
