What God is For

We've had a lot to celebrate lately.

This month, we celebrated our graduating seniors. We would like to say congratulations again to Ana Gailey, Cristina Scoretz, Layne Johnson, Molly Parker, and Sarah Mosley, along with all the students and teachers at our very own Mission Point Preschool.

On Graduation Sunday, we spent time reflecting on Ecclesiastes 12:8. Everything without Him is futile, and we become more and more aware of this the older we get. We only have a limited amount of days to fulfill His purpose for us. Whether you're a graduating senior or a senior citizen, let us make the most of our time by living for His purposes.

And this past Sunday, we celebrated our moms! Motherhood is one of God's many amazing gifts, and we give thanks to the mothers in our lives who have sacrificed so much for us. Fittingly, we celebrated Parent-Child Dedication too. As a congregation, we committed to raise several babies and young children in the Lord's instruction. We want these moms and dads to know they're not alone - they have the family of God at their backs.

It's so important for us to take times like these to celebrate. It's also important we take time to champion the things that God is for -- to be about the things God is about, rather than only what He's against.

This past Sunday, Pastor Cliff reminded us that it's too easy to be against something. As Christians, we also need to make sure the world knows we are for something.

God is for us. He is for the single person, for those who are mothers, the widow and orphan and those who are in need, the unborn, the brokenhearted, and the sinner. We are to be for what He is for!

"But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. How much more then, since we have now been justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from wrath." --Romans 5:8-9 (CSB)

Put this into practice today. What steps can you take this week to show someone that you are for them?
