Our Loving God

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.  Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.”

Psalm 37:23-24

 

Our school’s theme verse for this year reminds us that God desires to “show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him” (2 Chronicles 16:9).  The verses above deliver a similar message.

As we looked at earlier in the school year, many people seem to view God as someone who is looking to rain down judgment on people who mess up.  The picture of God in the Bible is of a God who searches out—and even delights in—those who do right.

The passage above goes even further, reminding us that God upholds us, giving us the strength and wisdom to be able to do right.

At LCA, it is our desire and mission to prepare young people to be able to be blessed by God, first by becoming His children through Jesus Christ, and second by falling deeply in love with Him, and third by demonstrating that love through our actions of service.

As we begin the coming weekend, let’s rejoice together in our great and loving God and commit ourselves again to faithful service.
