DISCLOSURES

Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

LOVE in Action

COME:



1 Thessalonians 4
3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, 5 not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; 6 that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified. 7 For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. 8 Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit.

9 But concerning brotherly love you have no need that I should write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another; 10 and indeed you do so toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, that you increase more and more; 11 that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, 12 that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and that you may lack nothing.

HEAR:


There is one theme I see in the verses above. I see God commanding holiness in our lives. Not to make us subject to bondage but to keep us free from the affects of death. In this holiness not only should we be pure in our actions, such as being sexually pure, but we should be pure in our attitudes. We are to keep a quite life. This doesn't mean we don't stand for righteousness in a fallen society and make the will of God known in the public square. That, especially in the USA, we SHOULD do. But this does mean that we don't brow beat people who never asked for our opinions. The Church at large has done such a poor job of loving the sinner. We hold the sinner to our standards. We say unless you be like us, you are to be shunned. We forget, that at one level or another, we WERE that sinner before Jesus. Even the one raised in Church and believing in Jesus from a young young age has his or her past and current sins. Rather than trying to be perfect and make everyone else perfect... let's learn to love people with the love of God. That is what the chapter goes on to say. LOVE one another.

Does love mean accepting sin? NO! Does love mean accepting the sinner WITHOUT trying to make them just like you and make them believe what you believe? YES! That means I can walk up to my Gay female co-worker. I can ask her how her girlfriend is doing... JUST as if I was asking my straight co-worker how his wife was doing. I can mean the question sincerely. I can be honestly interested in their welfare. They never asked me my opinion on whether being Gay was right for them or any of my opinions on the subject. To bring it up wouldn't be acting in LOVE. IF, the day comes that my walking in LOVE with those coworkers who don't believe as I believe causes them to ask me about the HOPE that it is in me. I'll tell them. I still won't brow beat them over the sin in their lives. Jesus died for ALL sin. I won't bring up theirs or mine. It's all under the blood, even if they don't know it yet. And they are never going to ask me to help them receive that forgiveness if I'm arguing about their life choices.

I mind MY business. I work with my hands, doing the assignments the LORD has placed on me, and I do it in LOVE and EXCELLENCE. Those who will follow, will follow. I'm called to Pastor. I have no Church right now. But my sheep are those who I come in contact with that ASK ME to lead them. They come, one by one, one at a time... I have no right to correct a Christian who is speaking in doubt and unbelief or any right to correct a someone living in a Gay lifestyle. The only time I EARN that right is when I have loved them sufficiently that they ask me to become that advisors. When that happens I must make sure I continue to walk in LOVE so that I don't loose that right. Thank you Jesus for teaching me to walk in LOVE.

DO:


I'm going to keep my preaching to myself... LISTEN MORE... TALK LESS... and SHOW people the LOVE of GOD, rather than TELL PEOPLE about the what they're doing wrong... Thank you Jesus!

PRAYER:


Father, help me! I need to remember your GRACE IN ME so that I can be YOUR GRACE THROUGH ME to others! Holy Spirit, help me to remain firmly rooted in your love for me. Thank you for the opportunity today to love others, as you have loved me! Darrell

I Collect Churches

So I have a confession... I have a strange hobby. Some people collect toys, cars, stamps. Some people visit museums, zoos, arboretums.



I... collect church experiences. I visit churches and collect insights on the differences between them, leadership styles, music styles, facility choices, and the overall experience. I collect pastoral teaching and teaching styles. I collect theology and theological differences.
I didn't know it was a hobby at first. I thought I was just "looking for a home church", or looking for something I hadn't found yet. I thought I just hadn't found my place...

Some of that is true. But really, I somewhat accidentally turned studying church into a hobby. Maybe it's because I was a pastor's kid and saw some of the inside workings from a unique perspective. Maybe it's because I secretly, and not so secretly, feel I am supposed to be a pastor but I'm still trying desperately to be anything else.

Maybe it's because Church, …

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
