What’s our responsibility to our planet?
February 11, 2013
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
Several years ago, Newsweek magazine ran an article where they likened our planet to a spaceship traveling at unbelievable speeds. All the inhabitants of the earth are passengers on this spaceship. And our natural resources are the cargo. But the problem is that the passengers are destroying the cargo that’s necessary for life to continue in the ship!
One of the great issues of our time is the environment. And as Christians, we can’t remain silent on this issue because the Bible is not! Everything we have is from God. And as we’re taught clearly in the pages of the Scriptures, God’s blessings should be stewarded well – not haphazardly!
Now I realize there will never be a perfect solution to problems like the environment until Christ returns. The earth will continue to deteriorate. However, much like our response to sin in the world, we don’t use the inevitability of things getting worse as an excuse for inaction. We always fight for what’s right!
One day Jesus Christ will return and bring with Him a rebirth for our planet. But until that day, let’s be at the forefront of caring for creation and stewarding well the gift God has given us in planet earth!
GOD HAS GIVEN YOU DOMINION OVER HIS EARTH. SO STEWARD IT WELL!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
