The Challenger Disaster Reminds us of our Mortality

In the wake of the thirtieth anniversary of the Challenger disaster Consider; recognizing our mortality leads us to focus on immortality.
We know that we will stand before God one day (2 Corinthians 5:10). But it’s easy to think about that fact later. We’re busy people facing challenging times. Why is our accountability in heaven relevant to us on earth?
Because the God of heaven is also the God of earth. He is both omnipresent and omniscient. He is where you are right now, a fact Jacob learned at Bethel: “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it” (Genesis 28:16).
He is reading your thoughts this moment: “O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. . . . Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether” (Psalm 139:1–2, 4).
Think of the person whose opinion means the most to you. Imagine going through your day with that person at your side, hearing everything you say and watching everything you do. Imagine that this person has been granted omniscience and can read your thoughts. How will your day be different?
An essential leadership principle is that people do not do what you expect—they do what you inspect. God knows that this is so. That’s why his word so clearly teaches that he is present in all we think, say, and do.
Now add this fact: The Lord who inspects us also empowers us. If you’ll ask God’s Spirit to guide and strengthen you for God’s purposes (Ephesians 5:18), he will answer your prayer.
So stay conscious of God’s presence today, and you will impact your culture and glorify your Father. Your mortal life will produce immortal good.
Is there a better way to live?

Pray for the Family:
Sharyn Hughes is having surgery today.Please prayer for her and her immediate family. God speed in recovery.
We appreciate your prayers for Terri in her recovery from hip surgery.
Please lift those up who are struggling with substance abuse. Unfortunately Drugs and alcohol abuse are a plague in our community For some they are a substitute for the power of the Holy Spirit.Only God can fill the void in our lives!
Please remember those who have lost someone this year.

As this year comes to a close, it’s vital that we take time to both reflect on what God has done and allow him to prepare us for what’s to come. A new year marks a fresh opportunity to center our lives around the goodness of God. I pray that as you begin looking toward what is to come you will make space to gain God’s perspective, ground your hopes and pursuits on his grace and celebrate all that God has done and is doing. May your time with God this week be filled with the loving presence of your heavenly Father.

“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

Lord Bless you as you GO and DO the great things HE has called you to.
