Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. My hope is to see others comment and share a scripture that they have read.
Here's the scripture that stuck this week:
Isaiah 51:6 ESV
"Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
and look at the earth beneath;
for the heavens vanish like smoke,
the earth will wear out like a garment,
and they who dwell in it will die in like manner;
but my salvation will be forever,
and my righteousness will never be dismayed."
I am trying to think more green in stuff these days. I'm the guy in the church office telling everybody to email me and do things digitally as much as possible. I am not against being environmentally aware, and don't really understand how you could be against it. When God made Adam, he put him in Eden to take care of it, so we should definitely take care of the earth the best we can. The only thing I would not venture into is "saving the planet". When I read a verse like this, I'm reminded of who is in control, and that it is His planet to save, but we can definitely do our part in not destroying, and in some instances, restoring it. It is sad to see nature deteriorate, when we are not responsible, but at the end of the day, God is our salvation and our hope....and, let's resist any political comments on global warming vs. non-global warming. I can watch the horrid news stations for that. Let's hear what God has given you in scripture this week.
What's your Word?
