Chris Laurie

Please pray for the Laurie family. Christopher Laurie, son of Pastor Greg Laurie and Cathe Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, died Thursday morning in a car accident. A resident of Huntington Beach, Laurie, 33, served as the art director at Harvest Christian Fellowship for the past three years. In addition to his parents, Christopher is survived by his wife, Brittany, and daughter, Stella, as well as his brother Jonathan. Christopher and his wife are expecting another daughter in November. 

It truly is a disturbing thing. There’s no way our minds can comprehend it. I believe it’s because we weren’t meant to understand it. When the Lord made us, he made us perfect, then sin crept in and tainted God’s perfect world. We were never meant to die which is why its so hard for us to understand when a loved one does die. We’ll never know why the Lord chose to take him now, but at least we know he’s in heaven. You know, there are some things that we aren’t meant to understand because we, being man, would have no way to make it reasonable, which is what we as humans need to do to understand things. There are some things in life we just have to accept and “beyond our comprehension.” That for some reason the Lord is shielding us from this understanding because we would not be able to bear the weight of it.

    “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.”
    {Hebrews 11 v 1}.

    For faith is believing in things that we cannot see. Now we must believe that what we have prayed for will soon manifest in our lives, for by faith we will truly receive. Yet some people say, “ but it’s not easy and you don’t know what I am going through,” well, that is true, but it still doesn’t change the fact that Jesus said, “ All things are possible to them that believe,” and we must live by faith. It is worth hoping and believing for things in our lives to change, it really does not matter what people say, or what we feel, for God said, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God”. {1 Corinthians 3 v 19}.

    Well, you may say Billy these things that you have written seem to be very foolish, and contrary to civilized people of today, but the Bible says, “That the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men”. {1 Corinthians 1 v 25}.

    Dear saints never underestimate the power of our Lord’s gospel. Many people would like to know what you and I know, and see the things that you and I see, surely we are so blessed because we have the Holy Scriptures to tell us who and what we are in Christ.

    Yes, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. May we always have the faith to believe for a better life, for ourselves and our loved ones, for Jesus said, “I have come that you might have life and life more abundantly”. My prayer is that you may indeed have an abundant life in Christ Jesus”.

    It’was a glad day when Jesus found me, When His strong arms were thrown around me, When my sins He buried in the deepest sea, And my soul He filled with joy and victory, It’was a glad day, oh, hallelujah! It’was a glad day He claimed His own! I will shout a glad hosanna in glory, When I see Him upon His throne.

    That was a really great post. I saw it on myspace and meant to tell you. Of all the posts I’ve seen and comments I’ve read (there have been a bajillion) no one has really hit upon that. That it was never meant to be this way. That sin tainted all of it, but that despite that, God still cares for us and is mighty to save.

    It reminds that sometimes you have to stop trying to reason with certain things and just rest in God’s promises.

    Thanks Nat.
