In Season 1 of the sci-fi series Stargate:Universe, the would-be crew of the ancient Lantean ship, Destiny find themselves hurtling toward a star with no control over the ship’s navigation systems. The ship is running out of power and they may soon die anyway. Unable to get control of the ship, they eventually give up and accept their fate of being destroyed by the star. As they approach the sun, they soon realize that something does not add up. They soon discover that Destiny is in fact solar powered! The power drain was so the shield could withstand the heat of the star to recharge the ship!
In life at times we face similar circumstances. We see the holiness of God and it scares us. We try to get control of our lives but it only leads to further disaster. We think we are headed toward our destruction but God wants to give us life! He wants to draw us near to him. All we have to do is let go of our control.
As you watch this video on Holiness, remember that in Jesus we are made holy and pure, not by anything we have done, but by the grace of God alone!
