Sermon Snap Shot September 9, 2018

But the primary message that I want us to focus on today from these early verses in Genesis – verses that teach us that we are made in God’s image and have responsibilities in God’s creation – is this: You matter.
Yes, you’re made from matter…from earth..from soil…that’s part of what we see in Genesis 2! From the earth we came and to the earth we shall return. But in addition to this reality…You also matter. You matter to God. Always have and always will.
And no matter what anyone ever tells you…no matter what the world tells you…no matter what you might even tell yourself…no matter how many crazy things you may have done in your life…You matter to God.
And because you matter to God, you matter to me. And because you matter to me, you matter to this shared community called Waters Edge. You, by God, matter! And in God’s great scheme for this world that we inhabit, you have a role to play.
 
From yesterday’s “Time and Talent Sunday” message based on Genesis 1:26-28, “You Matter”
 
Rev. Lane Glaze
Pastor, Waters Edge UMC
