This Thing Will Never Last!

Academicians, Our Lord Jesus Christ -- an itinerant Preacher-Healer-Carpenter from a back-water town -- personally recruited Twelve unsophisticated (and poorly educated) Apostles to complete His work. No doubt, our present-day personnel recruiters ("head hunters") would tell us that His group would never last and would never expand! If one of their ancestors practiced the same profession back in 33 AD, his evaluation report might look like this:


Every human organization or institution in human history to date -- including ancient and modern political empires -- have all disappeared.  As the old Yiddish proverb goes: Mann traoch, Gott Lauch! "Man plans, God Laughs."
Every human organization or institution in human history to date -- EXCEPT the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church! 
Despite massive persecutions, groups breaking off from the Church as schismatic churches, and an array of other factors which inform our human intelligence that Mother Church should have been killed off -- it is the year of Our Lord 2010, and the Church is still here, still active.
What used to be Our Lord Jesus and His Twelve Apostles is now 1.3 billion Roman Catholics in the world.  Roman Catholics comprise almost one fifth of the world’s population (estimated: 1,121,516,000 Catholics, as of 2007).  

The Church is still here because it is NOT a purely human enterprise.  The Church is the work of God, the direct work of the Holy Spirit. So, God isn't laughing at His people, the Church.  He is planning our next move, our next mission, our improvement, and our continuation.  Even if the Church becomes a Remnant Church, it will STILL continue, improve, and grow.  That makes God SMILE for love of us, not laugh at us!
Just a little something to think about... and count on!
