A SERVANT, NOT A CELEBRITY

Colonel James Irving is a former astronaut who is part of the crew that made a successful moonwalk. He experienced the thrill connected with leaving this planet and seeing it shrink in size. He watched earth rise one day and thought how privileged he was to be a member of that unique crew. Then he began to realize the route back home and how many would consider him as a superstar, for sure an international celebrity. But he was humbled by the awesome goodness of God and he made this observation. "As I was returning to earth I realized I was a servant, not a celebrity. So I'm here as God's servant on planet Earth to share what I've experienced that others might know the glory of God."

(From a sermon by Larry Moyer, What Does God Say about the Sanctity of Life? 1/5/2011)
