From Your Pastor
March 22, 2015
Dear Grace Family and Friends,
Spring is here. The transformation that is taking place in plant life is
unmistakable. One week everything is the color of death; dull and drab.
It's hardly recognizable as "living." The next week everything has burst
forth with color and life. I realize not everyone is happy to see winter go.
Summertime in the Augusta area can be pretty oppressive if you aren't
used to the heat. But how can we not rejoice in the beauty of God's
creation? When I see the life bursting forth all around us I'm reminded
that we serve an awesome God. Evolutionists would have us believe this
is all the result of "dumb luck;" a cosmic accident that occurred billions
of years ago. I may not be "the sharpest knife in the drawer" but I'm
smart enough to know the majesty of this world isn't "accidental" at any
level. There is a clear design. And if there is a design there must also
be a "Designer." I'm blessed to know His name, and to call Him my
Friend. Jesus Christ is the author of creation, and His handiwork is
magnificent. Keep in mind that we are the crowning jewel of His
creative genius. How ironic that the lower life forms tend to be more
faithful in declaring His glory than we are. That ought not to be. Having
been created in His image, everything about us should reveal God's
glory through every season. Nothing more is required to be effective
witnesses for Christ. But do we even think about that on a regular
basis? Many are so "self absorbed" we rarely, if ever, think of anyone, or
anything, but ourselves. That's a sin against God. Jesus came and lived
and died and resurrected "for others." Before leaving He challenged us
to live similarly. That doesn't happen automatically. But it can and must
happen if we are to accomplish His intended mission. Think about that
as you reflect on the beauty of God's creation. Make sure we are
reflecting God's majesty as surely as nature does. Doing so will be a
huge blessing to our great God. I love you and am honored to be your
Pastor. God Bless You!
Changing our world by loving God & loving each other!
