Creation Care

We were recently blessed to have Dr. Charles Arand from St. Louis Seminary with us last Saturday, for a presentation on Creation.  Some thoughts from his lecture were:

Read the Bible outside!  Especially the Old Testament, where there are so many references to animals and nature.

Consider the reality of the Creator and the Creature.  We are His creatures, living together with all of his creatures.  Knowing who the Creator is makes all the difference in our wonder at the beauty and marvels we see around us.

Include Creation in the story of salvation. Heaven includes the New Creation.

We are living in the dawn of the  New Creation … right now, since Christ came into the world, he created faith in our hearts, and Jesus is with us.

God sustains all of life, all of creation, all of the time.
