Wayne Weekly: “His concern”
Written by Teddy on March 16, 2015
Many of us are familiar with the verse 1 Peter 5:7, “casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you”.
Recently I was reminded that the words “He cares for you”, has a much broader or intense meaning than, “He attends to our needs”. It can be understood as “it matters to Him concerning you”. Somehow those words seem to paint a fuller picture of God’s love and benevolence towards us as it relates to every aspect of our lives.
Recently we lost one of our younger staff members to his desire to continue his formal training down in Virginia. Doug came into my office and thank me for the opportunity to work for Mars Hill. I felt a sincere care for his welfare and our good-bye handshake turned into a manly hug.
It mattered to me concerning this young man and his future. It mattered to me about his spiritual walk.
God, our Father, has perfect care for us. It matters to Him about us, every part of our existence. And God does so perfectly and so completely.
