God at Work
The Bible records Jesus performing 34 miracles. These were really BIG miracles such as feeding the 5000, giving sight to the blind, etc. Sometimes we look too hard to find God at Work. It was very easy to see God’s influence and help as we recovered from Irma’s devastation. That was a BIG example of God at Work. But, when we only look for the BIG things God does, we miss God at Work:
Every time someone prays it’s God at Work.
Every prayer, card, flowers sent to Sue Turner was God at Work.
Every heartfelt condolence to Chris Ammerman and her family was God at Work.
The surgeon’s hands repairing Mike Mol’s back were guided by God at Work.
Every time someone accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior, God is at Work.
Every box packed for our troops is God at Work.
Every sermon preached and heard in person or by web site is God at Work.
Every bit of food, cards, and condolence shared with Helen Bryan and her family was God at Work.
Every new person who decides to worship with us is God at Work. (13 this season)
Every mission the ECC supports is God at Work.
Gator and Arlene’s niece, Kelly, was born with cystic fibrosis. Her chance for a long fulfilling life were two: slim and none. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder where one of the genes causes the build-up of mucus in the lungs. Life expectancy for all is short. CF researchers have developed an enzyme that blocks the mutant gene. Effectively those taking the drug do not have CF. The problem is the drug is only effective in four percent of the cases. Then God entered the picture! Kelly is in the 4% and today she does not have CF and can expect to live a long, full, productive life. That is God at Work.
