You think you know that don't you? You think we who call ourselves Christian at least would know that? Right?
Think again. Sunday at church we had something different. We've been going to Sycamore Church, pretty much out of the way - over on the other side of Gurdon. But we're good friends with the pastor and his wife and for once people aren't so startled that we might be somewhere else most of the time. I know that God understands, but I don't think many people in the church where our "membership" is will ever quite get it.
We are not out playing on motorcycles every week-end. We are not in a "club". We are not carousing and losing our salvation. Anyway, that's another story and I'm wandering.
Back to the church service Sunday. A lady in the church wanted to share a 40 minute video with the congregation. Yawn. You know, a video. What could be good about a video?
Well, anybody out there hear of Louie Giglio?
Maybe not, but you have to find, buy, borrow or rent this video: "How Great is Our God". I want to tell you about this, but alas, words don't bring the same emotions that the dvd does.
Here's what one watcher has said, "The viewer realizes that his/her problems pale in insignificance in the light of God's character as revealed in His creation. Giglio provides details about stars and their various sizes. It is sobering to realize how much bigger some stars are than our own sun. He includes discussion of the DNA molecule and its fascinating functions. There is also a protein called laminin. It literally holds our cells together--and so, by implication, it holds our very selves together. Amazingly, it is shaped like a cross."
SHAPED LIKE A CROSS!!! No kidding! We had our grandkids with us at church this Sunday and they were blown away.
Do you understand the implications of this? Down to the very molecules of our being, we are meant to belong to Him, we are held together by Him, we are in Him from Him and for His glory, not ours.
You want to have a cool party? You want to share your faith with friends or neighbors? Invite them over to watch this, and feed them snacks - food for their flesh and manna for their souls!
