Celebrate the exhilaration of knowing that life does not pass us by without our feeling God’s love, his presence, his unending provision, his truth, and his glory.
Celebrate that each day you live and breathe is an opportunity for God to smile on you and wrap his arms around you to give you hope.
As I reflected this week, I couldn’t help thinking about the family and friends I’ve gained in our church. How through the hardest and best of times God has shown his mercy and unending love for me through them. He desires to do this for all of us.
This weekend our church had a celebration unlike any other. It was the start of a new life for many. Through the miracle of water baptisms, they have now experienced rebirth. Our very own Ps. Stewart Lawrence said it best when he proclaimed that through baptism, we EMBRACE what God has for us.
The word of God inspires our hearts. It is like a reward for all who receive it. It is the fruit of the power of God’s spirit for those who seek it out. It bears much fruit, brings clarity, and brings peace. But most of all, it brings direction and purpose into our lives.
