Welcome to First Assembly, a relevant, exciting church striving to be living proof of an empty tomb. Our mission is to serve, serve the Lord Jesus Christ, His church and those searching for the meaning and purpose of life. You are cordially invited to celebrate with us the victory made possible through the cross as we defend the truth together and provoke this world to jealously.
The physical act of seeing involves many intricate parts working together. The parts of the eye along with the occipital lobe of the brain with its transfer system, all must be coordinated perfectly for us to be able to focus, see, remember what we have seen and then assign and store the image into our memory bank. After studying our anatomy and its exquisite and complicated design and function, one would be hard pressed not to believe in man’s intelligent design by a creator God. I have said many times that I simply do not have enough faith to be an atheist. Romans 1 declares that God’s creation bears witness of Himself, leaving us with no excuse for unbelief.
Back to the eye, each intricate part works together to give us a true picture of what we are seeing in vivid color. Jesus, sharing a spiritual analogy, said “Your eye is the lamp of the body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your whole body is full of darkness. Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness,” Luke 11:34-35. The Lord attached great spiritual significance to vision. It is the will of God that we have 20-20 vision in the spirit, able to see things approaching from a great distance, able to see the road signs signaling what is up ahead, able to enjoy God’s created splendor in ultra HD, able to follow the landmarks of the Holy Spirit, keeping us on the highway of holiness. As we read God’s word, feast from God’s table, work in God’s vineyard, and rest in God’s presence, our vision is renewed day by day. God’s glorious light fills our soul, keeping our lamps lit and full of oil as we await the Lord’s return.
