Welcome to GracePoint Church, where we are committed to helping you take your next steps toward knowing and serving a holy God of grace and truth
In the Reader’s Digest recurring feature, Finish The Sentence, readers were invited to submit their response to this sentence: “The one thing I’d save in a fire is…” Answers poured in from around the United States and included statements like: “My beloved porcelain doll,” “My original-edition Nancy Drew collection,” “My computer,” “My journals,” My Picture Albums, “My three dogs, four birds, three turtles, and two goldfish.” But the response that stood out above all the rest was from Rick in Lemont, Illinois. He said, “The one thing I’d save in a fire is…my wife.”
Isn’t it amazing how quickly our sense of values is drawn to things rather than to people? The Word of God elevates the lives of human beings to the highest value among God’s creative actions. Genesis 1:27:” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Paul goes on to additionally declare God’s intention for transforming us in salvation. Ephesians 2:10: “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Living daily in light of this foundational truth will have a daily effect on not only what I choose to do, but also in how I treat others around me.
As we enter this week, let’s commit to taking the next steps in honoring God’s intention by prioritizing people as the treasures they are and thus honoring the excellent nature of God’s incredible grace and truth to us.
From a Shepherd’s Heart,
Pastor Perry Kallis
