Weekly Devotional Thoughts
When God finished creating heaven, the earth and everything upon it, “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good”…Genesis 1:31. When we get our impression of humanity from the media and not the Bible, it adversely affects our view of others.
This week in Houston we are watching as the best of humanity has been on display. Countless individuals have brought their boats, kayaks, jet skis, anything that will float to help form a “Civilian Navy” (BBC News) to rescue people trapped by the rising waters. This “navy” has stepped in to help the National Guard, the 1st responders from Houston and all the other emergency personal who are coming in from across the United States.
The majority of the “Civilian Navy” will not receive financial compensation. The vast majority of them will remain anonymous. They will not become famous or become reality stars with their own TV series. They are there because they want to be there.
There are countless other heroes whose names we will never know either. They are the ones who have opened their wallets and have made monetary contributions to help.
It seems like the worst of times brings out the best in everyone. This is not the only time it happens! Most people are good, loving and kind hearted all the time. They reach out daily to help family members, neighbors, and strangers.
In Genesis 1:27 “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them”. Growing up, I thought this just meant God created all of us to look like Him. I missed the point of this passage. I’ve come to understand created in God’s imagine means we were created to love the way God loves.
We are seeing this love in action in Houston. We see it when people become caretakers for the terminal ill. It’s there when a church bands together to feed homeless schoolchildren. This love was in plain view when a couple of churches came together to raise money for a young woman to have a lifesaving spinal operation.
When Jesus tells us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves, He is not telling us to go against our nature but instead He is telling us to let our nature blanket the earth. Let our love, the love that God placed within us, cover the entire earth, and help transform it back into the paradise God first created.
Christ’s love is within each of us, continually let it out, and help transform our world.
A Message of Welcome From All Saints Lutheran Church
Hi! My name is Pastor Brian George and I want to extend a warm invitation to you to come join us here at All Saints Lutheran Church. Our Mission is to know, Serve, and Promote Jesus Christ through worship, fellowship, education and outreach. Here at All Saints Church we see ourselves as the center of spiritual growth where God is praised and his loving message is proclaimed through worship and music that is energizing, inspiring and uplifting. Worship and music inspires the worship participant to be blessed so that they become a blessing to others. At All Saints a warm and loving welcome is extended to all and everyone belongs. Our congregation is growing larger and smaller at the same time; meaning you can always find your place here in one of our smaller groupings. At All Saints we grow spiritually through daily devotions by being a part of a small group and by giving and sharing our blessings with others. At All Saints we discover our God-given gifts and are inspired to use them. Here at All Saints we are known on the community grapevine for being a congregation that reaches inward in ministry and reaches outward in mission. We are “The Church With Open Arms!"
