AS IF IT NEVER EVEN HAPPENED

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy last October, I saw a swarm of green “Servpro” trucks across Southeast Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland, to help restore homes and businesses in the clean-up process.  On each green truck was the “Servpro” restoration company logo, “As if it never even happened.” It made me think of a powerful concept that Ellen White presents, that, “…through the righteousness of Christ we shall stand before God pardoned, and as though we had never sinned.”  Our High Calling, p. 48.  What a comprehensive picture of Grace that is!  And that is what the Remnant Church is called to have and to share in these last days.  The full message of Christ and His redemption motivates and inspires the recipients of God’s grace to live one hundred percent committed to God. A church filled with grace is truly the Remnant Church that fully reflects Christ to a dying and fallen world.  For you see, it is only when grace leads, that truth can shine!  It is only when grace leads that people want and accept truth, and keep it in their hearts.  That is why Ellen White would say, “The strongest argument in favor of the gospel is a loving and lovable Christian.” Ministry of Healing, p. 470.  May your heart, your church and our Conference be filled with grace, so that we can fully reflect Christ here in Pennsylvania.
