WEEKLY REFLECTIONS
 
In Honor of First Responders

On Sunday, September 17, we will honor the first responders in our county.  We will honor them during the 10:30 service and a luncheon will follow. First Responders from all areas of service: Ambulance (EMS), Fire, Police, and 911 call center personnel; whether paid or volunteer, are due our gratitude. First responders deal with situations that most of us will never have to face.  They see things that most of us will never have to see and they deal with it in differing ways.  Sometimes they use what is referred to as “dark humor”.  It is one way that first responders may deal with the exposure to trauma.

God was the first, First Responder.  He knew that the crown of His creation, mankind, was helplessly in need of rescuing.  There are numerous Scripture passages that demonstrate God’s rescue effort:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”(John 3:16).

“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8, NKJV).

As children of God we have been called and commanded to take the good news of Jesus to others.  Although only Jesus can rescue people from the guilt and penalty of their sin, He has called us to be His hands and feet.

Let’s express our appreciation to all the first responders in our community. Let’s be God’s first responders with the gospel.

Until Jesus comes,

Dr. Bill Scott
