Thankful for You

This morning I am thankful for you – yes, you.  I sat down with a good friend today who is not part of our church, who has never attended any of our services, who is probably the polar opposite of me on the political spectrum in many areas and yet when I saw this friend the first thing they did was hug me tightly and tell me how much they love me.  We sat down for almost two hours and most of that time I got to talk to this friend about the incredible God we serve and about many, many, many of you!  So thank you; thank you very, very much.  And I want you to know why today I am so especially grateful; it is something that Sue reminded me about and I wanted to share it this way.


Cooperation with God

We have been on a journey in Galatians 5 looking at, digging into, seeking to know more about the Fruit of the Spirit.  Paul gives us a strong call to “Live by the Spirit!”  He isn’t making a take-it-or-leave-it suggestion, but he is challenging us that this is the best way the only way for a follower of Christ to live.  While most of us want to be better, to do better, Paul is telling us that the decisions that we make are our choices; that the power to live by the Spirit is not dependent upon us, but the choice to live by the Spirit is ours to make.  Or we can choose otherwise.  A few weeks ago I referenced a book by Philip Yancy, Prayer – Does It Make any Difference? and I would like to do so again in light of this journey into Galatians 5.


Giving and Receiving

There is an old Jewish story that tells of a rabbi who asked the Lord to show him heaven and hell.  He met with the Lord and God said to him, “I will show you hell first.”  Inside was a large round table with a pot of delicious stew in the center of the table.  The people in the room were equipped with long-handled spoons, but they were all starving.  They were able to dip into the stew quite easily, but because the spoon handles were longer than a person’s arm, they were unable to get the nourishing food to their mouth.  God closed the door and said to him, “Now I will show you heaven.”
