As a Christian, one of my primary missions is to spread the Gospel; of course, we who take on this mission must do so in love, not in pretense. Nor can we “shove it” in people’s’ faces; proclaiming God’s word and the salvation Jesus Christ affords doesn’t give us the “right” to talk down to others – after all, all have sinned.
Anyhow, the purpose of my new “Sermon Synopses” series is to share the Gospel through my blog a different way – namely, by summarizing each week’s church sermon. Shall we start?
The storms that bring the winds are back
To stir up strife and launch attacks
Against my peace, against my heart
Except this time I’ll do my part
To keep my heart and soul at rest
And pray to God for all the best [click for more...]
It’s worth it to make the devil angry with your faith.
The slate of typicality now coming undone, the rush of responsibility slowly piling on…I’d say come on! …but let’s be realistic. Three before the paper in hand after the first year of decade two of century twenty and one comes to a close – I’d say now’s the time to pen the prose typewritten as I run on and on reminiscing on the fun that was and the greater times to come. Yes, greater times – I’m tired of wandering wary of tribulation, knowing that all that have come before and all that will come after me have been – and will be – challenged…that said, why worry? I’ve no desire to scavenge the remnants of things of aforetime – fun as they were, no real purpose did such things serve.
That said, here I sit typing away, slowly unwinding the grind of toils and thoughts and achievements wrought; thinking about battles fought – this time with an eye on goals once sought, casting down those things that came to naught.
After all, why let subtle reflexes hold one back? The heck with that, time to go on the attack! A few falls here and there, but I’m feeling the spark coming back as I remember a time when I needed to get back on track, lest my progress derails and my story fails.
(But God does not fail, you see.)
Easter Resurrection Sunday! While many call this day Easter, I prefer to call it Resurrection Sunday.
You see, this is the day where we celebrate the Lord Jesus Christ’s resurrection, which sealed His triumphant victory over Death and Hell and gave those of us who believe new hope.
This is gonna be a long one, so bear with me, y’all.
