WPC Warm Up, April 21, 2014
Maybe you've asked the question, "What makes you so special?" Usually this comes up when somebody seems to want to draw attention to him or herself. The implication in our asking is, "You are nothing special!" Where do we get this idea? What if we actually believe this? But what if we ARE special? Read Genesis 1:1–27. It turns out the first question is not "what", but "who" makes us special. What does it mean to be made in God's "image". What do you think? Send me your thoughts on this. I'm collecting them for this Sunday. One for sure is our sense of humor. But what else? One more thing. We also have to pay attention to the "making" special. It's a process. So read as well this fascinating passage from II Corinthians 3:17–18. So now you can ponder this question, "How is God making you special in what's happening this week?"
