Hey friends, how are you doing? Really, how are you? How was your week? Our weather has been very topsy turvy this week. We’ve had warm days and cooler days, sunshine and clouds, rain and now snow is in the forecast, all in one week. Although our God does not change, He is indeed the never-changing God, yet He delights in change.
He brings changes to our world with the weather and the seasons. He allows the changes natural disasters bring to His earth. He allows the changes that knowledge brings to man with better inventions; inventions that can bring healing and longer health.
But I think our God most delights in the changes, we allow Him to bring to our lives. He delights when we surrender our will, in exchange for His will for our lives. He rejoices when we allow Him to mold us and shape us, so that we begin to exemplify His characteristics. He takes pleasure in us when we say ‘yes’ to His way and ‘no’ to ours.
Today is an extra special day in history. On this day, more than two thousand years ago, our Savior went to the cross for us. On this day, our Lord demonstrated through the death of Son, His undeniable, unwavering, unfailing love for us. Because of His death on the cross; a death reserved for the very worst of criminals, when His only offense was His love for mankind, we are able to secure an everlasting relationship with the God of the Universe.
Because of this, we too, delight in the changes the Lord brings to our lives. We take pleasure in renewed life we’ve been granted. Because of our salvation, we can indeed face tomorrow without fear, because we know the end of the story. We know that though today is Friday, Sunday is not far behind.
How are you doing?
