Cedar Creek Cleanup 2013

Cedar Creek cleanup 2013When God created the earth, He directed Adam and Eve to care for His creation. Today it’s just as important for us to be good stewards of our Heavenly Father’s beautiful world.

So I’m excited that Calvary Assembly of God is going to be involved in the cleanup efforts in our hometown of Cedar Springs. For the fourth year in a row we’ll be picking up the junk that seems to accumulate around our waterways and in our public areas. We’ll be pulling on our waders so we can walk into Cedar Creek to remove the things that shouldn’t be in there. The fish and wildlife will be happier, and I bet our Creator will be too!

We’re meeting behind the fire station off of Main Street on Saturday, April 27, at 10am. If you are in the area, please come join us.

Although all of the cleanup efforts are concentrated on one day, my hope is that it will become an ongoing lifestyle for us to always be caring for our community.

Perfect

QuantumLook up.

See all those stars? Even all the stars our most sophisticated telescopes can see don’t even come close to showing us all the stars in our universe.

And yet of all the stars and all the planets, our Earth is perfectly positioned by our Sun. If our Sun was any bigger, we’d get too much radiation and heat. If our Earth was any farther away, we’d be too cold to survive.

God placed Sun, Earth, moon and stars perfectly.

Look down.

Way down. All the way to the sub-atomic level.

Neutrons, protons, electrons all arranged perfectly. Too many protons or electrons—or too few—and matter wouldn’t hold together properly.

God placed those components of our atoms together perfectly.

Look in.

Right into your heart.

Gifts, talents, passions, insight, personality, temperament. All of those things in a perfect blend to make you.

You are unique. There’s never been anyone like you before, and there never will be another like you in the future.

God placed those attributes together in a perfect mixture to make you. Too much of this, or too little of that, and you wouldn’t be you.

What are you going to do with your you-ness? How about letting your Creator tell you exactly why He made you the way He did—

For YOU are God’s handiwork, perfectly created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for YOU to do. (Ephesians 2:10, with a slight change to personalize it)

God knows what He’s doing. He created the big universe perfectly. He created the sub-atomic universe perfectly. And He created you perfectly too.

Now what are you going to do?
