Behold the beauty of the Lord...
Behold the beauty of the Lord... in three articles:
"First Article" - Beauty is scene in creation's majesty. Nature and the rocks cry out that there is a Master Poet, an Intelligent Designer: God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. We will behold this beauty on our hiking through Zion National Park.
"Second Article" - Talking about rocks, Isaiah the Prophet says, "“Behold, I lay in Zion a chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame” (Is 28:16). As the Apostle Paul points out, "This Rock was Christ" (I Cor 10:4) - Christ CRUCIFIED, whom Paul preached. With the Creed, we confess that we believe "in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord," second Person of the Holy Trinity.
"Third Article" - Finally, on this trip we will behold the beauty of the Lord in one another, the communion of saints. "...you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house" (1 Peter 2:5) in which the Holy Spirit dwells as the temple of God (1 Cor 6:19). The Holy Spirit brings life to cold, dead stones like us and makes us "living stones." Together, we share and participate in this life in Jesus Christ, the Crucified and Resurrected One. Join us for a special summer trip in three articles!
