Happy midweek, this first part of June. Yes June! The month that summer begins and more sunshine is generally felt in the Northern Hemisphere. I am thankful for the blessing of daylight and sunshine which testify of our Creator’s love and care for this earth. God has made the sun to give physical light and warmth to all living. He has made it so that all the plants of the earth can be sustained by the light energy they receive from the sun. And with the help of water and earth, the living plants in turn give beauty to delight the senses of both animals and of human beings and precious oxygen that ministers to our required need for breath. It is this Creator God who first breathed into Adam’s nostrils the “breath of life,” so that man might become a living being. And it is this same God who stepped into the darkest night of man’s own sin to be our Savior. Jesus who was in the beginning with God, and through Him all things were made, and without Him, nothing was made that was made… Jesus stepped down from heaven to become a man that He might save us from sin. He did this even though it would cost Him everything!
As you contemplate the things of nature during this month of June, please remember our Lord and our God. For He is our Savior and our Friend as well. Truly no greater friend could anyone of us have other than Jesus. He is now and always will be the true Light of the world. And, He is coming again! Soon every eye will see Him in glory… and the dead in Christ shall rise, and those of us who are in Christ and who are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with the resurrected saints to meet our Lord… where? In the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. (See John 1, Revelation 1:7 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
I pray these words bring you hope, encouragement and comfort.
Grace and Peace,
