Sunday Words of Encouragement February 6, 2011

This morning's message was titled: Heaven...You and the Animals.  Scriptures says that in the new earth we will be dwelling, eating, drinking, working and rejoicing. Our Pastor made a very good argument that animals will be part of the restored earth. See Is 11:6-9 (The wolf will live with the lamb).  See also the verses below that refers to "creatures." Since original creation included plants and animals and man had a special relationship with animals that will be part of the new earth as well. We will eat vegetables and fruits although hunting may be gone. But God could provide a meat that doesn't require killing as he provided manna.
God Gives and Restores!
The most important thing for us to think about heaven is to look forward and be prepared. Meanwhile, we should Live Vibrantly, Love Freely and Serve Passionately.

Thank you God for making all things new for us now
and in a future heaven and earth.

Steven Curtis Chapman \ All Things New

You spoke and made the sunrise, to light up the very first day
You breathed across the water, and started the very first wave
It was You
You intoduced Your glory, to every living creature on earth
And they started singing, the first song to ever be heard
They sang for You
You make all things new
You make all things new
Then the world was broken, fallen and battered and scarred
You took the hopeless, the life, wasted, ruined and marred
And made it new
You make all things new
You make all things new
You redeem and You transform
You renew and You restore
You make all things new
You make all things new
And forever we will watch and worship You
You turn winter into spring
You take every living thing
And You breathe Your breath of life into it over and over again
You make the sunrise, day after day after day
But there's a morning coming, when old things will all pass away
And everyone will see
You make all things new
You make all things new
Come redeem and come transform
Come renew and come restore
You make all things new
You make all things new
And forever we will watch and worship You
Now and forever You are making all things new
You're making all things new
Hallelujah...

Verses for Today:
Revelation 5:13-14 (NIV)
 13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:
   “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
   be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!”
 14 The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

I pray that daily God helps me keep my focus to "Live Vibrantly, Love Freely and Serve Passionately."
