2 Thessalonians 1:11-12
Wednesday, August 12, 2009
Hundred-degree temperatures still persist, the leaves of trees remain green, and the humming of the airconditioners tell us that summer is here. The department stores, however, speak of a different message with their display of cold weather clothing and Halloween decorations. The arrival of fall is imminent. No need to stress. Instead, insist on enjoying the present time and remind yourself that another beautiful season with different colors and ambience is coming. This fall when the leaves let loose of their chlorophyll and the air brings a little chill, we begin to change our activities, the food we eat, and the clothes we wear. Even the thermostat will undergo some needed rest when it will neither be set to "Cool" nor "Heat". In the garden it is the time to clean up and prune. The time to decide which ones should stay, which ones need to go, and which ones need to be planted. This process involves examination which leads to decision then most importantly followed by action. The real gardeners are those who follow through this process. Esther is coming to Cornerstone! If you are planning to do something different during this coming season, consider a new bible study. Cornerstone Christian Church will be offering a great bible study this fall. The book "Esther: It's Tough Being a Woman" by Beth Moore, will be used as the tour guide in going through the God-inspired Old Testament book of Esther. You can examine your present involvement now and then decide to join and have fun with other women. Decide on a purpose that counts. 11With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith. 12We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
