Serving During the Break:
Well, College Night was a hit! What a great time of fellowship we enjoyed coming out of the Covid shutdown. Now it is time to do something that many of you have desired to do while on break and even next semester. You want to serve!!
So, the college group will be doing some service projects during the winter break. We will be starting the first one on Nov 17th at the church at 6:30 pm. We are planning to do these every other week till we start back Wednesday nights at the end of January.
Our plan is to do 2 service projects that are around the church and then do 2 projects that serve the community. We are also looking to partner with some other BFGs. Times and dates for the other 3 are going to be posted soon.
Our Week in the Word segment this week is a repeat from many months ago. It is easy to get caught up in school, work, getting ready for the holidays…so much so that we get burnt out. We forget that God is all we need and sometimes we even lose sight of the fact that God loves us. We feel the need to toughen up, keep pushing through, and take care of ourselves…this couldn’t be further from the truth! Our Heavenly Father cares for us!!
Timothy Babatunde wrote this piece for our blog back in April, be reminded and encouraged again by this truth:
Consider the Lilies
As a new interest, I have gone around taking pictures of flowers and identifying them by name through an application. So far in my unprofessional floral explorations, Cinnamon Rose and Begonias are the most popular around Louisville. It is unmistakable that the detailed fabric structures and pigments of the blossoms reveal a microcosm of the excellence of God’s beauty in creation. The multifaceted colors of some flowers are simply mesmerizing.
But why did God create flowers with such intricate pure beauty? I ask myself. He could have chosen to not make the Peonies, Petunias, Roses, Buzzy Lizzies, and Lilies, to name a few, as beautiful as they are. Truly, man wouldn’t have known it at all, if God chose to not make flowers as aesthetically pleasing as they are. Why did the Lord God, in His inscrutable wisdom, put so much detail into flower plants to make them grow to display such a beatific sight?
I believe Jesus Christ answered these questions in his words to the disciples. In Luke 12:27-28 Jesus said to them, “Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!”
Aha! That’s it! We can infer from Christ’s words, that God created and caused flowers to grow with such pure beauty as a signpost, with an inscription, “TRUST THAT I CARE SO MUCH MORE ABOUT YOU, MY CHILDREN!” Beloveds, God’s love for us is true, real, and unending! He cares for us so much more than we can ever conjure. He created flowers of the field beautiful, for our enjoyment of them in him. Therefore, in dire situations and frustrations of our daily lives, in all forms of worries and anxieties that the days might bring, in rejection and perplexing feelings of being unloved, let us pause to ponder and consider the lilies of the field and let them remind all of us of God’s promises that we belong to him.
He loves us. He is near us. He is taking care of us. Brethren, let us trust him and take him at his words. We can join the psalmist in saying, “This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life” (c.f. Ps. 119:50). If he lavishes his care upon his creation, how much more will he lavish his unending love on his children as he promised.
