Cottage Grove Church

 

You have made us for yourself
and our hearts are restless
until they rest in you.
Augustine of Hippo

Alienation.

This word resonates with our experience in a troubled world.

Tensions strain our relationships to the point of snapping. War and violence fill the news. Conflicts poison our work environments. Racism leaves ugly scars. Inner unrest steals our peace. People are lost and alone among millions, anonymous even to their neighbors.

All this results from a deeper alienation: our alienation from God.

We need God.
We need to know God.
We need to be reconciled to God.

‘We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors,
 as though God were making his appeal through us.
 We implore you on Christ’s behalf:
 Be reconciled to God.’
    2 Corinthians 5:20, The Bible

 Weekly Quote:

How can we turn our knowledge about God into knowledge of God? The rule for doing this is demanding, but simple. It is that we turn each truth that we learn about God into matter for meditation before God, leading to prayer and praise to God.

(J.I. Packer. Knowing God. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1973, pg.22.)
