Spring Forward Time…

Yes, yes, yes! I know we must remember again to upset our sleep patterns and bodily habits and on this change we will “lose an hour of sleep.” Oh well, maybe some of us will find that lost hour by taking a nap Sunday afternoon and not at the 10:30am service! (hopefully, prayerfully…oh God get them here!!! Sorry that is a selfish prayer but I am selfish that way…lol)

But here’s the deal…a lot of days on the calendar are left besides this Sunday. I know you know that but I like to state the obvious sometimes. What about doing the Word, being in prayer, and fasting on a regular basis on those days? (Oh boy, I am preaching to myself here. I need to do more of this prayer and fasting stuff and stop feeding my face. Help me dear Lord – as I know one of the fruits of the Spirit is self-control. So Lord grow me up in this.)

Now, back to Sunday and Wednesday and small group Bible studies. What keeps us from being with God’s people? OURSELVES! Our lousy excuses which come from our passions that war within us! STOP IT I SAY! (to myself when I get fearful and slothful or a nasty combo of them both) Just do it! (James exhorts us to do this) Stop contemplating obedience and do it in His strength by His Spirit that He has poured out inside of you. Oh yes… you are not alone in this battle with passions. Jesus lives in us!!! Victory in Him! Lord build up our faith!!!

Oh Hallelujah!

PTL for the cross that means death not only of my sin debt but of my passions as I identify with His death and take my cross and follow Him daily…NOT JUST THIS SUNDAY!

In case you need further motivation…here are some lyrics from Cameron Dukes…one of my fav artists. You can download the song if you want and help support his gospel ministry…but here are the words: Read them and weep… or laugh!

Raindrop
One raindrop will stop 15 members from coming to church
One degree under 33 will freeze 32 members from coming to church (thats cold)
As much as He done for us
Is it so hard for us to wake up for church
Dont forsake the gathering
We can learn together we can pray together
one sitcom will stop us from 25 minutes of reading his word
What is the excuse we need to start studying to show ourselves approved
Rightly dividing the word of truth (the word of truth)
The only way we can grow is by studying His word (His word is true)
Jesus took 3 nails for me ( wheres my, wheres my, wheres my, graditude?)
Dont forsake the gathering (But when i come i come with an attitude)
How can you love someone you never seen (If you cant love someone in front of you)
Are you a saint?
Are you a aint?
Some of yall got me so confused
I heard somebody say (just cuz i dont go to church that dont mean i aint saved)
See you dont wanna join the family and learn the word so you can know how to behave
he said (i dont believe in that word it was written by a man and things have been changed)
Have you ever compared the originals to the same scriptures we read today?
he said (No) i dont think its fair for you to have that position without the facts
he said (dont push your religion on me)
i said dont push your religion on me right back
(well i dont trust in no Bible but i know that Jesus died for me)
well my Jesus told me to tell u the church is 2 Timothy chapter 3 verse 16
So you say you christian i know imma christian but we dont have the same beliefs
I believe its the people like you that mess it up for the believers like me
Got emotional and said (man dont judge i was saved at a church in 93)
well did the preacher preach outa the same word that u dont believe was it the same word that set you free (whoa!)

People put God in the back seat like a car seat
show up at every party and church on time hardly
im tryin to tell you that Christ is where my heart be
im wit God for the long hall like an RV
i aint conceided but i boast in God
christians be up and down like rollercoaster rides
do everyday based off emotions right
yall funny all jokes aside (man)
and everybody act like they rather live in sin
but he died for us so we can live for him
real saints in the church have become a minority
so what we need to do is make Christ a priority
you a saint or aint a leader or a side kick
Jesus is the pilot and we should be in the cockpit
riding shotgun wit Gods son
if we drive we gone wreck im talkin bout eternal death
