Creation/Fall and the Law

LD 3-4

(Download the Heidelberg Catechism Notebook, LD 3-4 PDF) coming soon!

In the beginning, God created all there is… and there was true Shalom (well being, peace, rest, joy, purpose).  Shalom – ‘all as it’s supposed to be.’  Humanity’s disobedience is a ‘breaking of shalom.’  In Christ, shalom is restored.  We are now invited to join in the restoration of shalom.  And when Jesus comes again, God’s shalom will rule perfectly in all things.  

This is the most beautiful, truthful, realistic worldview in the world today. 

If we seek God with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength – we will find him.

If we follow God’s created order and law for shalom (love and obedience), there will be blessing and flourishing.  This is God’s plan and design for us and his world.  

This is how it was in the beginning, is now in Christ, and forever shall be.  God made a way back to his shalom for us and his world when there was no other way.  No matter what you say, God’s Kingdom is here to stay.  He is the Potter, and we are the clay.  Jesus is calling you to follow him today.  What do you say?   

Since we can’t overthrow him, we should join him.  What will you do?  What will you decide?  He’s calling you to cross the great divide.  Into relationship, into love, into peace, into joy, into peace, into well being, into his SHALOM.  

Our Sunday morning worship service will be indoors due to a forecasted starting temp of 50 degrees.  

See you Sunday,
Pastor Mark
