They serve him day and night in his Temple. The One on the Throne will pitch his tent there for them: no more hunger, no more thirst, no more scorching heat. The Lamb on the Throne will shepherd them, will lead them to spring waters of Life. And God will wipe every last tear from their eyes. (Rev 7:16-17)
a Book thought...
God's desire is for us to live in harmony with him - body, soul, spirit, mind, emotions - every inch of our being. (p107 Bell)
a Dave thought...
Last night it was great to be a part of Souled Out the Eastern Vic Youth Councils held at Mitcham. Cadet Scott Ellery preached very creatively from Psalm 19 and challenged us all to reflect the glory of God as we live our everyday lives.
Divisional Youth Councils has been a significant weekend of the year and every corps always did their best to ensure that as many young people as possible attended this event. It was a time when hundreds of us would gather for worship, hear testimonies, have fun & be challenged to consider officership. We were all eager to get there as there was a sense that we were all in this together. Well times have changed and as we were once The Salvation Army Box Hill, we are now the Box Hill Salvos, as the local corps has taken priority over the vision for a unified army. The local church is seen by many as the 'hope of the world' and has become the focus, but when an army is at its best surely we should be about training and mobilizing the troops not setting up the best camp possible.
Just a thought.
