Let your life teach more strongly than your words…teach the way Jesus did, by simply taking the everyday events of this world, with all the pain and struggle, and redeeming them for good!
We’re not a resort for the righteous, we’re a hospital for the sick…and we all have the disease…
God made me creative for a reason…
I realize I post a lot about my hobbies; gaming, biking, drawing, movies, books, etc. However, I want (I guess my newer followers) to understand that the thing that comes first and foremost in my life is my faith. I am a Christian, and am fortunately in the position where my belief is also my job. With a spot at a local community center I spend nearly everyday studying religion in some way. The Bible, bands and their music, talking with people, checking out new lectures, or whatever else pops up. And as anyone with a job that requires a lot of dedication will understand, it helps to not focus on that job when you’re not on duty. I’ve been told over and over that Youth Pastors tend to burn out after only three years…I want to surpass that. Therefore, though I may be “on call” 24/7, I like to take full advantage of my down time.
So, there’s some insight into why the ‘Hebblog’ is so dang nerdy. My belief requires me to believe we have been blessed in this life with things that are meant to be appreciated. Art, stories, and the ability to find joy in the little things…I think that can be a good representation of love. And that is what I believe I am to strive for, to work towards, and to share :)
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Something I definitely need to be reminded of…I think we all do…in these times of stupidity, bigotry, and opinionated-hate.
We waste so much time worrying about others.
No wonder the popular thing to do these days is to hate on Christianity.
How can we expect anyone to figure this out, when our leaders can’t even figure out which one of our opinions is more right…
I spent today listening to so many different people argue about so many useless things.
Then, when I was alone, I accomplished a lot more work then a room full of people could.
Am I upset? Yes. Because I’m good at my job, and far too many of my peers refuse to acknowledge that. But that’s okay, because I’ll continue to be awesome, even if everyone around me just keeps making less and less sense.
What needs to change in your relationship with God?
