Our Purpose

To bring people to Jesus Christ and membership in His family, develop believers to Christlike maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and their mission in the world, in order to worship God and magnify His name.

 

In the United States we usually greet each other by saying, “Hello” or “Hi”.  Sometimes we ask, “How are you?”  though we normally don’t expect an answer beyond, “I’m fine.  How are you?”

 

For several years now when greeted with “How are you?” I have often responded with “Great!  I woke up breathing this morning!”  Similarly, when someone bids me, “Have a good day,” I have often responded with, “I’m already having one!  I woke up breathing this morning!”  This usually brings a surprised look to the inquirer’s face, followed by a smile and often a comment such as, “Hey!  That’s a good way to start any day, isn’t it?”

 

I think that my unusual response to these usual greetings causes people to reflect on the fact that any day we wake up breathing is, as Psalm 118: 24 puts it, :”a day that the Lord has made,” a day in which to “rejoice and be glad.”

 

The creation story in Genesis says that God breathed into us the breath of life.  Any day we wake up with that breath still in us is a good day, a day in which to heed the words of Psalm 150: 6 which says, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord” (NIV).

 

Prayer:  Dear God, whatever we face as we wake up each morning, help us to remember that the day before us is one more day of life that you have given us.  Amen.   Taken from an inspirational publication
