A Word on Wednesday: Response

“We were created in the image of God so that we would be able to see God wherever we look,” Pastor Matt Sauer.

Our response to our very creation as a manifestation of God’s glory, God’s justice, God’s love, God’s creativity is to share this image of God with the world.

Response: an action of reply, as in words or in action. In biology, any behavior of a living organism that results from an external or internal stimulus. Ecclesiastical, a verse or sentence, phrase, or word sung by the choir or congregation in reply to the officiant.

Any self help book will begin with telling you it’s not what happens to you, it is how you respond. We can control our response. And that is where the work of self healing begins, to control our response. This general short hand is usually a response to a negative circumstance. It rains, learn to dance.

But our response to the good is more important. The good news is we were created in the image of God. And our response should be “Send Me Out.”

“I wanna be your hands and feet I wanna be your vice ev’ry time I speak/I wanna run to the ones in need in the name of Jesus/I wanna give my life away all for Your kingdom’s sake/Shine a light in the darkest place in the name of Jesus (in the name of Jesus).”
