Important Topics

I appreciated the excellent articles in the August issue of
Adventist Review. Especially those referring to the final deception.

More than ever, our members need to be reminded of the issues we are facing in the last days. As Jacques Doukhan wrote: “The final battle between truth and dissembling does not allow for neutral ground.”

I also appreciated the message by John McVay, and the challenge to know Jesus more than ever. We don’t know when Jesus is coming, so we must strengthen our relationship with the Lord. Paul said that he considered “everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord” (Phil. 3:8).

We must remain faithful and ready for His coming! We’ve never witnessed signs of the times  as we are today.

Strawberry Sabbaths

Bill Knott’s “Strawberry Sabbaths” (July 2018) was such a blessing!

Just last week I spent some time gleaning the last few berries for a strawberry shortcake. I thoroughly enjoyed the open spaces, the twitter of birds, and nature. What as a teenager on Dad’s acre of strawberries meant work, now meant pleasure.

It also reminded me of the Sabbath when I thought I heard Mother calling me at sundown from the wild raspberry path to hurry home for family worship, only to find out that she had never called. It’s interesting how “in the silence of God,” we can hear Him speak.
