R.E.S.P.E.C.T.... Find out what it means to God!

01/16/2010

     God told me something tonight that I had let slip from the forefront of my development. It's important and vital to long lasting growth.

"Respecting ineffective leaders is just as important as learning to BE an effective leader!" 

  • It's one thing to study to show thyself approved a workman not needing to be ashamed but rightly dividing the Word of Truth!

2 Timothy 2:15 (King James Version)


 15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.


  • It's another to know that a leader could have done better and didn't. Or think that you may have done differently.  Or in any way criticize their leadership or decision. You cannot place a value of good or bad on their decision, it's not your place.

Romans 14:4
Who are you to judge another’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand.



  • You simply see that it is their decision to make and ask God how you are going to fit yourself into or around it. In doing so you walk in the LOVE of Godand immediately put Psalms 91 and Psalms 103 and 2 Corinthians 9 into effect! 

Psalm 91

 7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 
  
Psalm 103

2...forget not all his benefits
6The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.  
10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

2 Corinthians 9

 8And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:


  • When you do that, you activate THE BLESSING in your life. You will benefit from it no matter what! God will work that thing around and around until it works out for your benefit! 
 Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

  • SO many well meaning and deceived christians have misunderstood this verse and thought it was saying the exact opposite of what it said. 
    • They say things like: 
      • "Well I guess God has a lesson for me in this." 
      • Or 
      • "God is going to use this to teach me something." They often qoute this verse after saying this. 
    • What God is saying is NOT:
      • "I intended (or "Allowed") this because it'll be good for you. I know that broken leg hurts, but it's to teach you patience."
    • God is not a bully. 
      • He says that a good father doesn't give a rock when His kids ask him for bread. Luke 11:11
    • The Holy Spirit is the teacher of the church! Not situations!  
    • God is saying: "The thief comes to steal, kill, destroy... but I have come that they may have life, and life MORE ABUNDANTLY!"John 10:10 
    • I will work this out for your good DESPITE the devils attempt to take you out. Take a step back behind me, trust me, walk in love because I cannot work on your behalf if you violate the commandment of LOVE. I'll turn this on it's head and work it around and around until you benefit. Jail was NEVER God's will for Joseph, but He worked it and worked it until Joseph was promoted to 2nd to Pharaoh!

Foundations Class #2 Levels of Change

Foundations Class #2Levels of ChangeBob HampClass can be seen on GatewayPeople.ComStarts with two stories...1. True Story. He had driven out to help his aunt who had a flat tire. He used a metric lug wrench on an American car, it wouldn't work so he forced it, stripping out all the lugs. He used the wrong tools to try to fix the problem and trying harder made it worse.

2. Potty Training Parable. You have an infant and shortly after you realize that the child needs his/her diaper changed. So you change it and it gets dirty again, and you change it, and it gets dirty again... Constant change but nothing changes. Then you get a higher order of change. Potty training. Once the child is potty trained you no longer have to change the messes anymore. A higher order of change has over-ridden the former things.
It is this type of change we are referring to with "Levels" of change. Not levels as in: When I pass 1st grade I will be in 2nd grade. It's not linear change, progressiv…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Reflection Paper: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

Reflections of Mere Christianity
This is a reflection paper of the text Mere Christianity (Lewis, 1952, 1980). The content was first delivered as radio broadcast material between 1942-1944 by Clive Staples “CS” Lewis. Lewis then gathered the materials and published them as three sperate works, later combining and editing the text that became Mere Christianity. With the mind of a scholar and the mouth of a layman, Lewis takes us through the various topics that affect our lives as Christians and provides practical break-downs of how we are to treat each topic, supplemented by a host of modern parallels and parables. He is careful not to take any position that is not laid solidly in the Word of God, leaving those positions that are controversial within the Church either without an opinion or a well-deserved analysis of each side. However, far from a dry treatment of theology, Lewis gives us a laugh through each turn as he cuts through the heady stuff for the “why behind” each discussion…
