Made In God's Image



From Christy Smith:

I recently visited my friend Kaity at her family farm. She has been welcoming lots of babies lately...baby cows!  There have been eight calves born in the last two weeks, with five more expected any day.  It was a blessing to see all the new life that God has created!

Kaity's favorite cow is named Panda.  She is a black cow with a white face.  Panda's baby looks just like her, the only white-faced calf on the farm. Panda's calf was created to look just like her momma, and it's easy to identify her calf among the herd.

The Bible tells us that we are created in God's image.  An image represents and reflects something or someone.  God created us to reflect who He is to all those we encounter.  We are to reflect God's love, kindness, compassion, and grace so that He alone will be known and glorified.  As Christians. we are to be easily identified among the "herd"...not because of who we are but because of who He is.  I encourage my Greenway family to look for different ways to reflect Jesus to others in this difficult season of physical separation.  People need Him now more than ever!

"By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”   John 13:35

Blessings,

"They'll Know We Are Christians"

  
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord;
We are one int he Spirit, we are one in the Lord;
And we pray that all unity will one day be restored.

And they'll know we are Christians by our love, by our love,
yes, they'll know we are Christians by our love.

We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand;
We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand;
And together we'll spread the news that God is in our land.

And they'll know we are Christians by our love, by our love,
yes, they'll know we are Christians by our love.


We Will work with each other, we will work side by side;
We will work with each other, we will work side by side;
And we'll guard each man's dignity and save each man's pride.

And they'll know we are Christians by our love, by our love,
yes, they'll know we are Christians by our love.


All praise to the Father, from whom all things come;
And all praise to Christ Jesus, His only Son.
And all praise to the Spirit who makes us one.

And they'll know we are Christians by our love, by our love,
yes, they'll know we are Christians by our love.

*Hymn written by Peter Scholtes
