Sunday's Message, February 12, 2017

Love God With All Creation


God created the heavens and the earth, but man was the apex of creation.  Of course, then God thought he could improve on the product, so he created woman!

When man fell, the world fell beneath him and became a place of pain, death and decadence.  Nevertheless, God sent his son who absorbed man’s sin and crucified it.  Then Christ was raised to offer a new creation.  When we give our lives to him we get a new heart.  When he comes again he’ll give us a new body for a new heaven and earth.  When we’re totally redeemed, he’ll redeem all of nature (Romans 8:18-23).  Our fall was nature’s fall.  Our renewal is nature’s renewal.  The Bible teaches that we’re one with nature.  Therefore we should love God with all creation.  I’ll be preaching on that theme from Psalm 89:1-16 this Sunday.    

God spoke through Isaiah and said,

            So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;

            It will not return to Me empty

            Without accomplishing what I desire

            And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

            For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace;

            The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you

            And all the trees of the field will clap their hands (Isaiah 55:11-12).

Let’s learn to go out with joy, shouting praises to God with the mountains and clapping our hands with the trees of the field.  Let’s learn to look at the moon in all its beauty and fall in love with God all over again.  Let’s even do some singing in the rain! 

God said that his word would not return to him empty.  Please come to our Equip to Excel teachers’ training Saturday at 9:00.  Even if you’re not a teacher you’ll get a lot from the study on how to learn and use the Bible.

With love in Christ,
Dr. Jim Meek
