Breckenridge 01What in the world is this aspen doing standing among these pine trees? There is no reason for it to grow here.  As you might be aware, aspen do not reproduce through seeds. Instead they grow like weeds through their roots. So, how did this aspen get here?

Maybe this is how we feel as Christians, standing alone in a world that doesn’t know the grace of God in Jesus Christ.

“Peter and the other apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than people.” Act 5:29 God’s Word to the Nations

Talk about standing alone. As a result of this position, each of the Apostles (except John) would die a martyr’s death. Throughout the centuries, and even today, people die for their faith in Jesus Christ.

And I complain about my hangnail?

God, give strength to your church to stand tall even as we stand alone.  Amen.
