The pier at Lytham St Annes reaches out across the expanse of the sandy beech. There seems to be a fascination with the sea and the sand, it certainly is a good walk and restful to go along to the end and stand looking out to sea. This is certainly not new, but it has been going on for hundreds of years.
Does the fascination with the sea have anything to do with God and his speech in nature? Perhaps, I certainly think this has an effect on people, but they fail to make that next step from a creator of the ocean to God the Father, Eternal Son and the Holy Spirit.
He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
The sea was a tool for God to re-start the earth, to sanctify the earth again, but He promised he wouldn’t do that again because He had a better, permanent solution, and that solution was Jesus Christ dying on the cross and being raised to life again on the third day.
Wouldn’t it be great if many people took that step and accepted Jesus so that He could, as He has done already, cast your sins out into the depths of the sea never to be seen by God ever agin?
Dear Lord fill me with your eternal river so that I can do your will. In these tiring end days, let us all love one another without limits and live out your kingdom here and now.
