Scripture @ Sunrise 11.20.08

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”  -2 Corinthians 5:17

Jesus is in the transformation business. He is transforming people like me, like you. Someone wisely said, “Nature forms us, sin deforms us, education informs us, penitentiaries reform us, but Jesus transforms us.”

I think of how Jesus transformed Simon Peter from a blustering, big-mouthed, burly, smelly fisherman into the flaming apostle of Pentecost. I think of how He transformed Mary, who was a demon-possessed harlot, to herald in the resurrection.

One afternoon I got on my knees with a grown man in his forties, put my arms around him, and prayed as he gave his heart to Jesus Christ. He got down on his knees a sinner, got up a saved man on his way to heaven. Why? Because Jesus is in the transformation business. The One that turned water into wine is the One that can change radically, dramatically, and eternally any heart that will come to Him.

A faithful man finds an excellent wife…by God’s great grace!

An excellent wife who can find?  She is far more precious than jewels. 
(Proverbs 31:10)

Many a man proclaims his own steadfast love, but a faithful man who can find?
(Proverbs 20:6)

Two of the above have found one another by God’s grace.  Congratulations on your engagement, Charlie and Denise!  Let us be faithful in praying for them as they prepare to be united to one another in marriage.  Pray that during this time their love for God will grow as well as their love for one another. 

We love you!  :o)
