The Mobile Phone - A Different Perspective - May 20

The Mobile Phone

by Berni Dymet

I Cor. 1:18 For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

A good friend of mine - Graham and I, were at a conference recently. And we're sitting there in the middle of a presentation and I managed to spill my glass of water all over the table.

He leans over and says - "Don't worry- this morning I dropped my mobile phone down the toilet."

We both smiled. 

But it got me thinking - here's this guy - one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. He's given his life to serving God all around the world. And yet, God lets him drop his mobile phone down the loo.

Have you ever wondered - why does God let that stuff happen?

In fact so often it's a lot worse, when bad things happen to good people. It just doesn't seem fair does it?  I don't have any glib answers.

But then, God let His Son die on a cross. It was brutal. And it wasn't fair. I sure would like to know sometimes why God let's these things happen - but when I look at that cross - I thank God He does.


Here’s a vital question for you to consider: If you died tonight, would you be ready for eternity? Now, many people know that it’s all about having a simple faith in Jesus Christ. Nothing more, nothing less. But … do you have the sort of faith that Jesus talked about? To help you answer that question for sure, that’s what our latest Life Application Booklet is all about: Three Things I Absolutely Must Do Before I Die. We would absolutely love to send you your very own FREE copy to help you make sure that you have the right answer, to the most important question of all.
