Happy Valentines Day! »
Did you realize that the first and last words in the Conflict of the Ages series are God is Love? The first chapter in Steps to Christ also carries that theme.
Listen to this beautiful passage from the first chapter of Steps to Christ. Speaking of Christ's death of the cross, Ellen White writes, "But this great sacrifice was not made in order to create in the Father's heart a love for man, not to make Him willing to save. No, no! 'God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten son.' John 3:16. The Father loves us, not because of the great propitiation, but He provided the propitiation because He loves us. Christ was the medium through which He could pour out His infinite love upon a fallen world. 'God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself.' 2 Cor. 5:19. God suffered with His Son. In the agony of Gethsemane, the death of Calvary, the heart of Infinite Love paid the price of our redemption."
I think that's probably the most beautiful quote about God's incredible love for us. This entire great controversy between good and evil has been to prove, without a shadow of doubt, that indeed God is LOVE.
RMC Conference Office receives a facelift » We are in the process of completing significant improvements to the Rocky Mountain Conference Office. For more than 12 years, the interior of the office has not been painted, nor has the carpet been updated. The carpeting in a number of places was fraying and presented a bit of a safety issue. So from funds that had been set aside for a number of years in our plant maintenance fund for office building improvements, we have recently updated the carpet and have repainted the interior. Additionally, from these same funds we replaced our front entry steps, railings, and sidewalks which were unsafe because of cracking. Finally, because of the thoughtfulness of a private donor, we have added some new furnishings and artwork to our office for which we are very grateful. If you have a chance, stop by and see the much needed improvements.
