any sense of focus. Just sort of wandering about in search of something rather than being task oriented. I get that way from time to time, sometimes it is very productive, other times just a waste of time.
Playing around with the blog underpinnings, added a little snipped of Java script that allows you to double click on a word and up pops an Answers.com box with the definition. Cool. Also upgraded a couple of my other sites to Joomla 1.5b2, seems to parse the database quicker. Probably need to update the MySQL server as well but I’m lazy. Another day.
SU made me laugh when she found this story on some Hindu’s in a rush to worship one of their gods before it melts. A stalagmite of all things. I guess that it is the same feeling atheists have about me and Christ but it just seems strange to worship a fleeting image.
Browsing around the blogs, I see an awful lot of believers that have a gloom and doom attitude. It’s one thing to rant and rave about a policy you don’t like but to predict failure, chaos and catastrophe should be left to the conspiracy nuts. Think about it. If on the one hand you say that God is in control and you fear no evil but on the other hand you say that nothing can stop the impending disaster, have you said anything at all?
We’re going to be talking about reconciliation to God this week and a believer’s role in it. Should be interesting given the fairly recent culture shift in the South (the North shifted long ago) that proselytizing is a bad thing.
2 Corinthians 5:18 And all these things are from God who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and who has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 5:19 In other words, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting people’s trespasses against them, and he has given us 35 the message of reconciliation. 5:20 Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making His plea 36 through us. We plead with you 37 on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God!” 5:21 God 38 made the one who did not know sin 39 to be sin for us, so that in him 40 we would become the righteousness of God.
If we follow the world’s path, we cannot be ambassadors. We have a choice and must choose between the world and Christ.
