Escape Hatch

   Stop the world – I want off! Okay, so maybe I don’t really want the world to stop spinning on its axis, but it is a call for a break. And a break is most definitely a needed thing. The news that is displayed is saddening at best, disturbing at worst. So, what do we do when we are wanting an escape hatch? Well, it’s not rocket science. Thank heavens!

   Instead, it’s a gift. “Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” Did anyone else catch the escape in there? Here is our escape hatch! We, who have God within us as one of his followers, may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption of the world. Forget the stopping part, I already have my escape hatch!
