I'm excited about another new friend on the blogging block...welcome zephaniah317! This getting fun...
So, I'm supposed to be headed out the door for work and am instead sitting here blogging...is that a sign of a problem? I just can't decide what to post today. I've got some great stuff I read in Romans (along the lines of the Acts learnings) OR I could talk about the very passionate discussion our service planning team had yesterday about 'high church', liturgy, stale ritual vs. life-giving tradition.
Can I take a vote? What would you like to hear??
In the meantime, I need to get to work! I'll leave with this thought from Romans 3:23ish - 26ish (the Message)
Since we've compiled this long and sorry record as sinners...and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us, GOD DID IT FOR US!!! (yipppeeee!)
Out of sheer generosity he puts us in right standing with himself.
A pure gift.
He got us out of the mess we're in and restored us to where he always wantes us to be. And he did it by the means of Jesus Christ... This is...NOW -- this is current history.
God sets things right.
He also makes it possible for us to live in his rightness.
YAY, GOD!!! I am forever grateful....
