Bring On The Rain

Posted by Scott Lowther on

Job 5:10 "He gives rain on the earth and sends waters on the fields." 

Dear CBC Family,

Today is a rare day in Southern California as it is raining. It isn’t just sprinkling but coming down hard like I used to see in Florida. The wicked in the Bible are often referred to as “clouds without rain”. This means that clouds are designed by God to pour out rain. As I look out the window the clouds are excelling in their purpose God made them for. It’s rained non-stop for several hours now and the application for a Christian’s life is clear. May each of our lives pour out Christ the way these clouds are pouring forth water.

This weekend we will explore this idea in great detail. I mentioned last time we met that this sermon will be absolutely critical and I am holding to that. Our verses will be Romans 2:6-7 “He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.” The question we will answer is how are we to “seek for glory”? Whose glory? Seeking to see it or seeking to share in it? Certainly we are not to seek glory to share in it like Satan tempted Eve “you will be like God”. Since this seeking defines whom God will give eternal life then we better get this right. Join us as we delve into this very important text.

For now, let us give thanks to our God who “gives rain on the earth and sends waters on the fields” Job 5:10. And as we see this grace of God let it be our instructor that we too might do exactly what we were created to do.

P.S. Here is the list of the new worship songs. We will still keep some of the old ones too. As we transition into learning these songs, I pray your hearts will be filled with love for the Lord. Worship starts, and ends with, the heart. I look forward to hearing the church singing unto our blessed savior.

Blessings dear one,

Pastor Scott
