It’s exciting time here at Deer Valley Lutheran Church! The Sanctuary is getting a face lift. We’re painting the interior, putting in new tile floors and new seating. We are transforming the look of God’s house to a 21st century look. The challenge is being patient waiting for the finished product. The painters were in and out in a week getting their work done. The tile guys are on week two with some delay in prepping the floor for tile. (Have you ever used a grinder to get carpet glue off of concrete? Me either but it didn’t look fun)
It’s being laid and is starting to come together. The transformation continues!
A remodel is good way to look at ourselves. God uses the power of his word and the promise of what Christ has done for us to transform or remodel us. Christ’s death on the cross ripped the stain of sin out us and gave us his perfectness. We remain in God’s word to grow in the knowledge of the truth and hear the saving message of salvation God provides.
We can try to transform ourselves but trying to live better lives and be nice to people but by birth we are sinful. The truth of God’s word transforms us. Jesus does/did the heavy lifting in our salvation. God’s free gift is available for all. Do you know anyone who needs a remodeling job? Invite them to worship or one of our Bible classes this week. Let the power of God’s word work!
