You know, I’ve heard lots of sermons on repentance (change). I’ve taken Bible classes and explained the meaning of repentance for the required “A”. Until today I don’t know if I’ve ever heard it put this way….”to DO something.” (Thank you, Francis Chan podcast.) Not just to STOP doing something that you were doing that was BAD, but to DO something good. Do something for God. Yes, change your hearts, but don’t forget that part about changing your life. Not out of guilt (that’s tough for me…guilt), but out of LOVE. Love for God, love for His children.
Here’s the thing, this blog, this whole idea, if it’s from God, He’s going to make it into something… a blessing for orphans, a way for people to share their talent and give it for God. Because I’m the first to admit, I don’t have the time, or the talent, or the resources to make this into anything. Nada. Nil. None. It’s got to be God, or it’s not going to happen. And that’s ok too, I can always be folding laundry or doing some other noble task like that.
“…whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.” John 3:21
ps. I feel odd posting anything about God. There are so many great bloggers, preachers, know-it-alls out there. I’m not remotely “there”. But I’m going to try to share, even if it’s inadequate. Maybe if I can write about God to the crickets, someday I’ll be able to actually talk about Him to a real person that needs Him.
