Rainbow over Victoria Falls

“And now I entrust you to God and the message of his grace that is able to build you up and give you an inheritance with all those he has set apart for himself” (Acts 20:32, NLT).

The world seems to be in the business of tearing down. It happens on every level, from governments that don’t care about their people, to businesses that take advantage of employees and customers, to family members who insult and denigrate each other, or worse.

God’s way is to build up, through grace and the loving guidance of the Holy Spirit. Grace teaches us the way of peace and gentleness. Grace shows us that even though we are deserving of death, we are forgiven, loved and valued simply because of who God is. Every spiritual gift is for the purpose of lifting up the church. Rainbows, sunsets and sunrises remind us of our merciful Creator. Everything he does and everything he’s given us encourages us to keep going and builds our faith in Jesus, our faithful Savior.
