13,000 miles per hour
NASA is nervously anticipating the landing of their next Martian Probe. It should be landing soon. They are concerned that it will not slow down or stay together as it lands on Mars. It left Earth in August, traveled 13,000 miles per hour and is just now arriving 9 months later. That is a long road trip. It takes 7 minutes for the probe to enter the atmosphere in Mars and land.
I am not sure why I am writing about this. I am sure some of you can find some sort of spiritual relation.

That thing probably cost 23 billion dollars…image how much earthquate relief that would buy or how many churches could be built around the world (not billion dollar American churchs) …
I think we have already established there is NOT other life forms on Mars.
I don’t have a problem with the space exploration because we always get back lots of new technologies and products as a result of the research. Let’s see, a spiritual connection… Should we also be exploring new frontiers in the spirit? It takes some real serious effort and commitment to shake off the everyday clutter, and not just maintain our spiritual walk, but to go to a whole new place where we actually live in the spiritual realm.
“But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:” Acts 24:14
Just think…like this probe, it takes an extended period of time to reach it’s destination. But once it is within reach, it takes no time at all.
Being a pastor, so many times I have felt like some things take forever to get here, but when they do, I want it all the slow down and it doesn’t always last long enough.
