RE Verse reading–Acts 13:1-52 (day three)
The song by the Clash has become an indispensible part of classic rock radio. Unfortunately, the question that the title asks has become a familiar part of our life with God. Our faith frequently presents us with mystery, with things we don’t understand, and so we ask. And that’s okay. Questions aren’t a problem. But we want to know what lies ahead. And often, that’s just not going to happen. So we become indecisive, and our minds get paralyzed by questions. But when Paul and Barnabas saw their mission to Pisidian Antioch had failed, they didn’t wring their hands. They didn’t demand to know the future before packing it in and moving on. They didn’t second-guess their entire missions initiative. They had come to know enough about what God can do to launch into the unknown. That’s faith: going where you don’t know on the basis of what you do know.
