Worship the Creator

Hello from our part of the world,
It has been a very good week. The weather has been spring-like, and new life is everywhere. The early spring flowers are blooming, and baby calves are coming in great numbers. I’m afraid we are going to have to start mowing the lawn, although it just doesn’t seem right.
Last Monday, we attended the funeral of a godly man, a neighbor from our home community. It was the celebration of a life well-lived, and the legacy of a gentle man; a WWII veteran. Then, Friday we spent some time helping our son get some carpentry work done.
Saturday, I was privileged to answer some questions from a young woman, who after getting the answers she was seeking, prayed to receive Jesus into her heart. I don’t know if there is a sweeter sound than the simple prayer of a person asking Jesus into their life.
I heard some Sandhill crane flying over yesterday, and I was reminded of a devotional thought from a few years back.
As I heard those crane, I thought about the Creator, and how he had made these great birds with the instinct to migrate to a warm climate for winter, and then to return north for the summer. There are many people today who see all these wonderful things and still deny or doubt the existence of God.
In Romans 1:20-23, we read this: For since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him…although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.”
Today we have people worshiping the creation rather than the Creator. They are more concerned with saving whales and minnows and “mother earth”, than they are with saving the lives of innocent children. They are more interested in self rather than God’s will for them.
The scripture goes on to say that God will judge those who refuse to acknowledge him as Lord, or give him his rightful place in their lives.
May we never forget who he is, or whose we are. He created the world and all that is in it. To Him be honor and praise and glory!

Remembering Him,
Pastor Jerry
