Blogger Interrupted:

June 15, 2008

Greetings in Jesus name. We were without internet service for over two weeks and, as a result, I was unable to interract here. During that time, I pondered and prayed repeatedly on whether or not to leave this venue or to continue on. The answer that continuously surfaces is to continue on, but to focus more on encouraging the saints to get close to the Lord Jesus.  I mean REALLY close; so close that all of the sideshows with which we tend to occupy our time fade away.  We need an understanding of just how temporal this present world is and how “permanent” the age to come is.  II Corinthians 4:18 has been referred to many times because it highlights this truth perfectly.  This world and all that we see, will pass away, but Jesus is alive for ever more. When this understanding is etched into our heart of hearts, the idols of this world will simply dissolve into nothing.

From this point on, I’m desiring to focus much more on the God who created all that is, has no beginning, has no ending, and changes not. I want to strive to encourage the saints to let go of everything that separates them from Christ and to get as close to him as they can get. We will need this vibrant relationship with him if were to not be overwhelmed by the events taking place on the earth. Not only do we need it, those around us who are still in the valley of decision need for us to be faithful and grounded in truth. When the world around us is falling apart and we remain steadfast, they will know of a truth that Christ is in us and that our God is real. Some will have their spiritual eyes opened and will come to Jesus during these times.  

Each of us have been chosen for this hour. None of us came on the scene too early or too late.  May we all be prepared to let go of our best laid plans, come before the Lord and in all sincerety say “Behold I am here. Your will be done.”  To love him wholeheartedly, trust him completely, and follow him unconditionally.  Well, I’ll close for now. Until next time, I wish to all a blessed day in Jesus.
