SMART ENOUGH TO COME IN OUT OF THE RAIN

 

     I’ve heard this expression all my life, and understand what it means. But I wonder if we have gotten too smart for our own good.

 

     I was doing a research paper of school a few years ago and read a about B. F. Hall and Barton Stone traveling around the country on a preaching trip. One night they held a meeting in someone’s barn and it stormed pretty hard during their meeting, so hard it flooded the roads and the creek, so everyone who attended the meeting had to spend the night in the barn. Since there was nothing else to do, Hall began explaining Acts 2:38 to people and according to the account, this was the first time baptism for the remission of sins was preached and an invitation was offered. Several people were baptized that night in a large puddle outside the barn, (the creek was flooding too bad), and the next morning after the creek subsided, several others were baptized there.

     This was in the days before The Weather Channel, before all the meteorologists spent countless hours warning us about the coming rains and telling us to stay put, not to venture out, and ‘be smart enough to come in out of the rain.’

     Things are different now. We have the above mentioned warnings. And we seem to listen to them, because on nights when they are predicting storms our attendance is down. If there is a chance of rain, people begin questioning whether or not we are going to have outdoor functions, as if we might all melt. I just wonder how different things would have been if those who attended the barn meeting with Hall and Stone had a weather forecast and had stayed home. Would those several people still have been saved?

 

     I wonder sometimes if God does’t provide unusual circumstances to give us opportunities to do experience new things. Just wondering.

 

Think about it.

P.S.: I’m writing this on Monday. As of today the forecast for our Men’s Campout is 50% chance of rain and storms. As you read this I may be eating crow!
