JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s Reason to Believe is the waves of the ocean crashing on the shore.
If you ever go to the beach, one thing you can count on seeing is plenty of waves. They crash along the shore so consistently. They may vary in their height and intensity, but they are dependable.
The crashing of the waves forms a mental picture of God’s grace poured out on His people. John 1:16 says, “Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.”
Just as one wave replaces another at the beach, so the grace of Jesus comes to us in waves. His supply is fresh for each new day and reliable for meeting us at our point of need.
So, the next time you go to the beach, let the waves get your feet wet, and let it remind you of the constant, plentiful supply of God’s grace for His people. It will never run dry.
Each wave of the ocean crashing along the shore is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
