Msg#1606 Friday Day Six

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

It was Friday, the sixth day of the first week when God formed the crowning achievement of all his creation. “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion... over all the earth”(Gen 1:26a). It is ennobling to consider that God created every molecule, every creature, every planet and every star as an enhanced environment for this crowning achievement. Any Bible student quickly understands that such ennobling is not vanity. God's overwhelming purpose from Genesis to maps is this, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God” (Rev 21:3). It is true that most of mankind still rebels against God's desire; and would sooner believe that they evolved here. A majority think it okay to kill an unborn child made in God's image and that vile affections, “men with men working that which is unseemly”(Rom1:27), is just an alternate lifestyle. Do not let the depravity of man dishearten you, “the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend” (Exod33:11), and that is why he created you. “The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him... saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created” (Rev 4:11). For the blood-bought, born-again, it is ennobling to know we are made in his image, he tabernacles in our soul, and speaks to us as a friend. In a ministry of reconciliation our neighbor can have the same friendship. Be ennobled, tell your neighbor about our Lord Jesus Christ.
