Pride is such a dangerous thing. Lucifer's fall was precipitated upon his desire to be greater than God.

Man rejects God's precious gift of Jesus out of pride...man's desire to be the master of his own life. Families and friendships are destroyed due to pride. The simple act of saying "I'm sorry" is often not said due to pride. So much violence and hatred is inflicted upon society because some people's pride had been hurt.

I read a report once that said some of the most violent acts have been committed by people, not with low self esteem, but with rather a high bit of self esteem. They believed themselves to be self important and if someone disrespected them, they got violent.

Hatred and racism are based in pride. "I'm better than you."

Religious people refuse to love those whom Jesus called us to love out of a misplaced sense of pride. "I am God's child, I can't been seen with 'that' person. I can't talk to that person." Funny though, Jesus, God in the flesh, always talked to those whom the religious would avoid.

Maybe I'll have something more to say...if you read this great. If not, I hope you at least look into Jesus.

Blessing until another day.

I deactived my account...then reactivated it...LOL...
Got bored on my computer...sad...but no one noticed...
I don't even think anyone has read this blog.
Don't matter. I am a Child of God. Jesus loves me whether anyone reads this blog or not. Whether anyone read my whining or not. No matter who controls the reins of power, God is still in control and He loves me anyway. \
So, another day. More words.
Be blessed.
Write me. Don't write me.

Deactivated my facebook page.
With all this technology we can keep in touch but never touch.
Family and friends we've not talked to in years, we can now see bits of their lives, but we never touch.
We play on our computers but don't go outside. We are on MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, iPhone, IPod...wired, but never connected.
Deactivated my facebook page. I wonder if anyone will notice.

We are Our Own Idols

When the rich young ruler approached Jesus and asked what he needed to do, Jesus said, “you know the law.”
The young guy said, “I’ve done all that.”
Jesus then said, “Sell all you have and come, follow me.”
The rich young guy walked away sad.
Before this conversation takes place, the rich young guy said to Jesus, “Good master.”
Jesus said, “There is none good, but God.” Which therefore begs the question, “Do you believe that Jesus is God?” The young ruler didn’t believe. What is the first commandment? “I Am the Lord God, you shall have no other gods before me.”
So many of us think that because we “don’t drink, don’t chew, don’t date those that do” we are right before God. But we don’t let go of our egos, or money, or self-righteousness, bitterness, anger, addictions, un-forgiveness or whatever. We claim it’s a part of who we are. We constantly walk away from Jesus claiming we believe in Him, yet, we cling to our idols of self. Jesus does not abandon us. We walk off on Him. He will never leave nor forsake us, but so many times we forsake Him.
There are none righteous, no not one. We have all fallen short. Any in the body who claim otherwise are liars. “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” 1 John 1:18
What is it that justifies us? Our church attendance? How ‘good’ we are? Who we associate with? None of the above. It is Christ that justifies us before God. But how many of us truly understand that? We believe that our standing with God is based on our performance. Thus, we make ourselves our own idols.
We do things that we think will improve our standing with God. We don’t associate with “that type of person,” or we don’t “go to those type movies.” “I’m a Christian and I don’t do those things.”
So much of who we are has nothing to do with our lives in Christ. The idea of submission in the body of Christ has been lost because of the abuse of power within the body of believers. Men have behaved like rulers, yet refuse to give themselves as Christ gave himself for the church. Women in the body have been treated badly by leadership if they didn’t ‘submit’ to their husbands.
Marriages have ended because of the demands of submission. No demand should be made of someone that you are not willing to submit to.
How much better the world would be if each of us would put our faith in Christ and let Him live through us. In the Way, let Him love through us. As John the Baptist said, He must increase and I must decrease. To put one’s faith in Christ, is to put one’s faith in God. If God is Love, then we must put our faith in Love. Love is not idle.
God said to love God, then love each other. Then He loved us first. He loved us unto death.
Love is a risk. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. God gave us Jesus. God gave us Love. Man took Him, lied about Him, spat on Him, beat Him, mocked Him then nailed Him to a cross. This is what we do to Jesus every time we refuse to love those around us for whatever reason. For those reasons have become our idols.

Here it is...almost the end of August. Sam starts his senior year of high school. I've been boss at work since April.

I need to write something here in order to vent myself...don't matter, no one reads what I say anyway...LOL...I saw a T-shirt slogan that said, "More people have read my shirt than have read your blog." I laughed because it was so true.

Special people do things. People who think they're special write stuff...LOL...

Jesus loves me anything...LOL...

If You Weren't There...

Oh man, if you weren't there for Terry and Friends you missed one awesome show.
It was funny, it was touching, it was entertaining on so many different levels and everyone who came was blessed.
What can I say...

Some Thoughts

I believe that Jesus is God incarnate...God in the flesh
I believe that God is Love
I believe therefore that Jesus is Love.
If therefore Jesus is Love, when we are to share Jesus, should we not be sharing Love?

Just a thought...
