When the church gives itself away, we are fulfilling our job as followers of Christ. We do so by bringing God’s will from the heavenly realm to the earthly realm. God wants people to love, share, be considerate of others and provide a blessing to the world they live in. This is what happened before the fall of humanity. When sin entered in and man became concerned with “self,” he messed up his families, towns, cities, societies, countries and ultimately God’s world. We have a dream that somehow, through the work of Spirit of God, we can change what we messed up. We can start down the path of being new creations where other people matter, where the hungry are fed, where the orphans are cared for, where people are connected to each other, where the will of God is being done on earth as it is in heaven. In spite of the fact that many believe this is an unachievable dream, we at ElmCreek are learning how to be disciples of Jesus. We are learning on a day-by-day basis what it means to love God and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We are learning to love and forgive our enemies. We are experiencing, in some small degree, the liberating power of doing unto others what we would want others to do to us. We are learning to see how Jesus sees, and in doing so our hope is to bring God’s will from heaven to Earth.
