Before I Explode
I am writing today because I fear that if I do not, my heart will explode. I have just come from the eighth grade Bible class where Pastor Sturge Gorham shared the heart of God with each of us there in Mr. Braganza's mathematics classroom. The anointing of the Spirit of God was so thick in that room that you could have cut it with a knife. You know how the Bible say that the Word of God is quick and powerful like a two-edged sword? That was the reality this morning, because the Word was incredibly piercing and Pastor Sturge held nothing back as he spoke to us about being salt and light and being what this world needs, since every human on the planet has a hole in his heart that can only be filled with the eternal love of God. He challenged us all to remember the Creator in the days of our youth and to care about somebody's soul now, today. God asks us, "Do you know who you are?" and tells us, "You are the salt of the earth and the light of the world." We don't need what the world offers us, but the world desperately needs what we have been given by God to offer to the human race.
I sat in my chair thinking, "If only the parents of these students could see and hear this. Just this alone is worth the price of tuition." And then I thought about the seventh grade Bible class I witnessed yesterday being taught by Pastor Hadley and the senior Leadership class being taught yesterday by Pastor Lange and I knew then that I would be sitting here now trying to find the words to express how divinely blessed we are here at GGCA. The richness of the Bible teaching and spiritual investment that occurs daily here in our school defies words that can measure scope and value. My heart can only cry out, "Thank you, Father! Your love for us is so vast and so pure and you pour it out like an endless waterfall through your servants here in the classrooms."
God loves us. God is for us. God is with us.
God is all we need.
