I Am Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

That’s a lot of people inside my head but don’t worry because the title is a little misleading. A more accurate title for this post would be, I Wish I Was Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. For those not familiar with my “I Am _____” series, this is usually the part where I add the disclaimer about me knowing that my name is really Dave followed by something that eludes to the fact that while I may be Dave I am still  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego or whomever the title suggests I might be. This time is different. This time I can only wish I was Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

Our scientists tell us that COVIC19 is going to get worse, The Bible tells us that God is more powerful than anything we can understand – pray that God will show His power and stop this virus

Holy S***** I Am Being Challenged To Change!

I’m still trying to figure it out.  What seemed so clear to me in the past is being challenged.  I am not sure how or why I came to believe what I did but I think it’s time I let the Holy Sp**** challenge me.  I’m not sure how many of you would join me on this journey.  I’m not sure how many will stop reading my blog.  I find each time I am challenged to look at things differently, I wonder where I will end up.  The one thing I know is I will not end up where I started.

COVID 19 and Revival

A Call To Prayer

People around the world sit in their homes waiting for good news.  They wonder how long this will last.  They wonder what they touched, who breathed on them, what dangers lurk that science has not yet discovered.  In history when countries and continents were ravaged by disease all people had was prayer.  There were no answers. Science was not that advanced. God was all they had.  When prayer was answered people recognize that there was something more than them.  But now we have medical science.  Now all we have to do is sit and wait, hunkered down in our homes until this passes.  Someone will come up with a vaccine.  Someone will discover the treatment.  All we have to do is wait.

Love Your Neighbours

The world may not be looking to the church for direction on how to live during the COVID19 pandemic but they will be looking away from the church if the only form of giving we talk about is not missing your regular tithe and offerings to the church. Many already think Christianity is all about money. It’s time to let them know Jesus said it was all about a different form of giving.

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:35-40 (NIV)

A Little Understanding – “How-to” Do Life Books

“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And weboast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but wealso glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:1-5

I hate it when people bring up these types of verses…
