Fearful and Wonderful

March 09, 2017
By Pastor Allen

The more I look at our world from a scientific and spiritual perspective I am continually amazed at how God put everything together so things work.  Even more amazing is that despite our attempting to take back control from God He forgives us, moves forward with His plan and brings glory to Himself which is also good for us.

On Wednesday night we talked about how each of us is God's masterpiece.  Psalm 139 tells us that we are "fearfully and wonderfully" made.  You may argue with him on that either regarding yourself or someone else but if we accept the truth of the Scriptures, we must come to terms with God's conclusion.

On the successive Wednesday nights we will be discussing our S.H.A.P.E.:  Spiritual gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality and Experiences.   I hope you will put it on your calendar to discover how God created you and how each of us can contribute to the body of Christ...the church.  Discovering this truth will also bless our world in God's name.

Ephesians 2:10 "We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works which He prepared in advance for us to do."  (NIV)

He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing. (The Message)
