A number of blog articles have highlighted the generous contributions of our many wonderful volunteers. Needless to say, the Lord has used these special servants in a mighty way to make the Creation Museum a reality. It is only natural to recognize them, and to thank and praise God for their accomplishments.
Especially noteworthy, it seems, are those volunteers who come from afar, leaving their homes to give of their time and abilities. But let us focus on another group of volunteers, whom we have never even metlet alone captured in pictures. These gracious loved ones have nevertheless demonstrated at least the degree of Christlike selflessness that characterizes Creation Museum volunteers.
These volunteers will not experience the satisfaction and joy of personally making ones mark on this God-honoring place. Nor will they enjoy the fellowship and approval of fellow-laborers in this work. Who are these special people? They are the spouses and children of the men and women whowithout their understanding, support and sacrificemight otherwise never have come to volunteer at the Creation Museum.
Setting aside their own needs and security, and shouldering unseen burdens at home, the families of many of our volunteers truly complete the picture of biblical servanthood. They beautifully exemplify Pauls exhortation to the Philippians: Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. (Philippians 2:1-4, NKJV)
Thank you Lord, for the families of so many of our visiting volunteersmay their sacrifices not be forgotten.
