the classics

so every now and then i hear the 'modern' voices that preach a 'pretty good christianity' that is ok with 'falls' and seems to down play the possibility of living a life that truly pleases God, hating sin and being conformed and transformed into the image of His Son.... ah but then i go back to the classics and people like Oswald Chambers encourage me on and call me up higher and set the bar higher than i could ever reach on my own and so trusting God to fill up what is lacking and disciplining my mind to stay focused on Him and His truth... i press on

a man with a nature like ours

Jam 5:16
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
Jam 5:17
Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months.
Jam 5:18
Then he prayed again, and the sky poured rain and the earth produced its fruit.

i find, as others have found, just quoting the book of James with absolutely
no commentary is convicting enough!!

the tree of...

i wonder if the tree of the knowledge of good and evil had fruit that was very
low to the ground and easy to pick
and i wonder if the tree of life had fruit that was "giraffe height" and you had
to climb and really "want it" in order to get it
it just seems much easier to judge, complain, put down, than it is to lay down
your life and see if there is any way God could use you to bring life to a situation

Lord of What??

He's not Lord of my words...
He's not Lord of what I do...
He's not Lord of my thoughts...
He's not Lord of what I eat...
wake up call
If He's not Lord of all, He is not Lord at all

the good news
He can be, moment by moment allow Him
