He shall cover you with His feathers . . . (Psalm 91
In a particular study, some researchers riveted their attention on a particular nest of eagles. The feathered pair had a little male eaglet. On the eaglet’s 67th day, it tried to fly down from the nest, but things began to go wrong. It looked as if the eaglet was going to crash, but then its parents pulled alongside and stabilized it by covering it with their wings and tail feathers. Similarly, when it looks like we’re about to crash and burn, the grace and goodness of God says, “I will cover you and stabilize you.”
Be challenged by Romans
Romans doesn’t let us sit still. In Romans, Paul talks about the obligation we are under to spread the truth of the Gospel and to engage with the culture around us. He talks about the journey we must make after we accept the God’s gift of salvation. We are called to leave our comfortable and easy corners and spread the message of Christ’s sacrifice to everyone around us, because we have been freely justified!
