Lake life

Hard to explain, but real

The wind blows in a variety of directions. Saturday, it blew mostly from the south/southwest. And it blew pretty good. During the night, it shifted from the northwest and it blew pretty good again.

Fact is, the wind blows wherever it pleases.  You hear it whipping through the trees and rattling the boat in the boathouse. But you can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going.  We can certainly see it in the waves it produces on the lake. Even though we can’t see it, we know it’s there. But we know its power and what it produces.

The Bible teaches us that the Spirit is the same way. Like the wind, we can’t see It. But we can sure see what It produces. Everyone who is truly born of the Spirit is known by what they produce. The fact is both are hard to totally explain, but their existence is obvious.

“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
                 —  John 3:8


One thought on “Hard to explain, but real

  1. My Name is Skip Boyd and you obviously don’t live right on the lake as we do. When you said there is only one gate working and that it would not make any difference is not responsible talk. Five holes in a bucket drains more water out than just four. Opening one gate would be of more help to us than none. I have lived in this house on Bear Creek Road for over fifteen years now and We appreciate all that can be done as Our lowest level is at 84.9 feet.
