A thought for the day

Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

The need for God is great. There is no one who is alive or who has ever lived that does not need God. We have all failed so to speak. This is something that we do not like to focus on. I feel a lot of the time we are quick to speak of how great we are, how talented we are, and how independent we are. In order for us to have a proper understanding of God we need to understand how desperate we are for God and how frail we truly are. We have ALL gone astray, EVERYONE!

You need God.

The best part is that God wants you!

How amazing is that?

A word about death

I know it seems wrong to be talking about death around Christmas but I thought it would be good while it’s still fresh in my mind!

This week there was a celebration service at the church I work at for a man by the name of Jacob Bekker. As I sat and listened to the words that were spoken of this man of God I realized once again that life is short and fleeting. You will almost never hear anything bad about a man at a funeral and that’s fine, what struck me at this service was what was said about this man before he died.

I believe that is where the real test is. What do people say about you before you die!? I didn’t know Jake super well but before he was even close to death you would hear people say things about his peace, patience, work in the community, and his love for God. Wow. What a great list of attributes!

Often when I talk to people I hear them say things about people in way that lifts them up with a bit of negativity thrown in. “he is a great guy but…” is something I hear almost all the time when I am having a conversation about an individual.

What would it look like if we lived lives that gives no opportunity for people to add that “but…” I believe Jake was one of those men.

I would strive to follow Jakes example and impact the community I am apart of while I’m alive so that the ripples of my life are still seen when I die. This is what Jake has done and he has set the bar for the rest of us.

Live life so that you make an impact now. Enjoy life now. Don’t give people a reason to speak poorly of you. And when you leave this world your impact will have return for future generations.

Matt Chandler on dating/relationships

This of course is only two small video clips of a bigger picture of Matt Chandler’s view on dating, but I would say very good clips. Ryley introduced me to this guy and he is now my favorite preacher. You can get his stuff on iTunes podcast! Worth your time to check out for sure! Enjoy!

Aaron Gillespie-I Will Worship You

Perhaps one of the coolest stories in the Christian music industry is the story of Aaron Gillespie leaving the band UnderOath! I had the privilege of seeing him live as he played guitar and drums at the same time going hard for God! One of the coolest concerts I have ever seen! His music is very authentic and is worth looking into! Enjoy!
