Harbor or Horizon?

By Dr. Brent Beasley

“Really, it’s only natural that we would long for peace and stability in unsettled times like this,
in times of such rapid change,
in a time of economic uncertainty.
And the Spirit of God does provide
nurture and
safety and
peace and
acceptance and
comfort and
safe harbor.

“But the Spirit of God also pushes us out to be who we were called and created to be. So that the harbor becomes not a destination but a launching point. Not a place of arrival but a place of departure.

“The prevailing wind is blowing out—away from the shore. And that wind is the Spirit of God.”

This sermon was preached on July 16, 2017 at Rising Star Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas.
