“The Aspirin Age”

Posted: July 1, 2017 in Uncategorized

“Whoever dubbed our times ‘The Aspirin Age’ didn’t miss it very far.  It is correct to assume there has never been a more stress-ridden society than ours. For many, gone are the days of enjoying bubbling brooks along winding pathways or taking long strolls near the beach. The relaxed bike ride through the local park has been replaced with the roar of a motorcycle whipping through busy traffic. The easy-come, easy-go lifestyle of the farm has been preempted by a hectic urban family going in six directions…existing on instant dinners, shouting matches, strained relationships, too little sleep, and too much tension.

“Add financial setbacks, failure at school, unanswered letters, obesity, loneliness, a ringing telephone, unplanned pregnancies, fear of cancer, misunderstanding, materialism, alcoholism, drugs, and an occasional death; then subtract the support of the family unit, divide by dozens of opinions, multiply by 365 days a year, and you have the makings of madness.  Stress has become a way of life; it is the rule rather than the exception.” – Chuck Swindoll, Stress Factures. p. 15

Wow!  Does this describe your life right now? If so, perhaps you need to get aside and spend some time alone with God through His Word and some God honoring music.  You may need to be assured of the fact that He is in control of everything. He will put an end to all evil one of these days. He will be exalted among the nations and in the earth when He comes back to rule and reign for 1,000 years (Revelation 20:1-7). All this may happen much sooner than you realize.  Until then, a Christian can/should realize that He is both with us and indwells us (John 14:17).  He can/should be our refuge during the storms of life.  Do you have a noisy heart right now?  Read Psalms 23 and 46.

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior?  He died for all our sins…and rose again bodily from the dead on the third day.  By one act of faith you can be transferred out of the devil’s family into God’s forever family.

If you aren’t sure that you will go immediately into the presence of the Lord at the time of your death, we’d be happy to show you from Scripture how you can have assurance of your salvation right now (Romans 8:16; 1 John 5:13).
