Wonderfully Weird

07/20/2014  Wonderfully Weird: Ephesians 2:10

Wierd AnimalsWonderfully weird may seem like a contradiction of terms. In the Vacation Bible School (VBS) language of this past week, the focus was on just how each child is unique and God loves each one of us unconditionally with all our personalities, passions, preferences and situations. The missionary-apostle Paul writing to the Ephesian churches underscored the fact that individually and corporately, in Christ, we are God’s masterpiece, created in Christ for good works prepared by Him for His world and His glory. This speaks volumes about our value, purpose and God’s planning ahead in our lives.

"Timeless" Truth #100 - by Ben Brown


Well, this is it. When Pastor John asked me to put some thoughts together for Emmanuel’s website, I didn’t realize we would reach this point in time. I doubt if Pastor John did either. I trust that these various thoughts have pointed you to a deeper, more exacting faith in God’s Word. It is so important to understand specifically what He said in the original dictated languages. We must be ever wary of translations into our language that they do not add or subtract from the original text. It is not an easy task to capture rich Hebrew and Greek words into English. J.B.Phillips once said that his work in translation was akin to rewiring a house with the power still on.
