a city on a hill.
a chosen people.
a royal priesthood.
a holy nation.
a tree planted by water.
the hope of the world.
i write this as a reminder to me and the people that voted for Barack.
Barack will not save the world. our work is the same as it ever was. it may be a little easier now. it may be a little harder. or a lot on either side. but it's the same work.
i write this as a reminder to the people that voted for John.
Barack will not end the world. your work is the same as it ever was. it may be a little harder now. or a little easier. or a lot on either side. but it's the same work.
and to all of us.
the nation does not need MORE prayer. the president does not need more prayer. they need prayer. the only way "more" should be attached to it is if there was no prayer in the first place.
we...those who follow Jesus...are the light of the world, a city set on a hill, a chosen people, a royal priesthood, and a holy nation.
if there is change that needs to happen, strive to make that true first.
don't only do it for yourself...do it corporately.
warn each other of sin.
spur each other on to good works.
encourage each other
disciple each other.
exhort each other.
do justice together.
be like trees...not a tree. stand in groves that are filled with all kinds of trees.
learn to worship in ways that don't include music.
learn to worship in ways that make you tremble, whether for your safety here on this earth, or for your safety before an awesome and mighty God.
be stewards, not savers or spenders. stewards. stored up treasure on earth is useless. you can't take your stuff with you. what a time to show a different mindset toward your material world!
and pursue His heart for others. one side of these political line is filled with people who believe the main call is to save souls. one side is filled with people who believe the main call is to work for the oppressed. one Man lived to show that there are no sides. there is salvation. the good news to be shared is for soul...and it is for the Kingdom, on earth as it is in heaven.
