down, in, out

STEWARD= someone who cares for someone else's property. Being God's steward invites us to look at how to LOVE - in three different directions: DOWN, IN, and OUT.

We begin by looking at how God has come down to LOVE us. We then look in to discover all that God has entrusted to our care. We end by looking out to understand the needs of our neighbors and how to LOVE them.

 

DOWN in Creation: God's LOVE came down to us first at Creation. In Genesis 1, God forms humankind in God's image and commands "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth" (Genesis 1:28). From the beginning we are not owners but we are the stewards of all that God created.

DOWN in Jesus: God's LOVE  comes down to us in His son Jesus. God loved us so much that he sent Jesus to die for us to bring us salvation and new life.

DOWN in Baptism: God LOVE also comes down to us in our baptism claiming us as children of God. We are to be bearers of God's love, grace and gospel.

We will be learning much more about how God's LOVE comes down in the months of September, October, and November.

 

IN: Coming soon. December, January, and February.

 

OUT: Coming soon. March, April, and May.
