Jesus IS Lord
‘Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
May all who love this city prosper.’

-- Psalm 122:6
God's Design and Purpose
for Man in the World

Genesis 1:26, NLT

Then God said, "Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground."


Ephesians 3:10-11, NLT

God's purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.


We've all asked...
Is This All Ther Is?
© 2001 AlbertaRose

I see people walking, without any purpose,
Without joy or laughter or love.
They don't seem to care if they are oppressed,
Or if the stars are shining above.

Their purpose in life is to merely exist.
Earn wages and feed their young.
They don't see others passing by,
Or hear the songs left unsung.

We tell ourselves "This is what I must do.
Don't get involved; they don't need me".
And resolve to the fact that this is life.
Content to be driftwood at sea.

Is this what God has planned for us?
Is this what pleases Him most?
That we, in His image, His most precious prize
Should wander on earth as a ghost?

Was His Heart sent down to be broken and bruised
So that we might "merely survive"?
NO! He sent us His Son, Jesus Christ
To uplift, bring joy and REVIVE!

Reach out your hand to those passing by;
Let Jesus be your guide.
God wants us to live with peace and success,
To be whole and happy inside.

Next time you see someone wander by
Without purpose, without joy or love
Smile or wave; give them a sign, that
Yes, there IS more — it comes from above!
