Life Seasons in Holy Week

Between the Ascension of Jesus (Acts 1:10,11) and His Return (1 Thessalonians 4:16) God is at work in the world through the Holy Spirit (John 16:7,8).  Right now, God is in the world, involved with the world, and directing the world for his purposes.

Consider Psalm 1:3, “Which yields its fruit in season.” We know that God included His love for seasons in creation and in his involvement with us. (Genesis 8:22, Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
