Get Thee Behind Me                       

A little boy always went next door to play even though his mom had warned him against doing so. This worried his mom so badly that she asked him why he was so disobedient.
      
    He replied that Satan tempted him so bad and he did not know what to do.
      
      His mom then advised him to say 'get behind me Satan' whenever he was tempted. She then built a fence around the house.
      
      This worked for a week, then one sunny afternoon his mom looked out the window and there was her son playing on the neighbors lawn having cut a hole in the fence.
      
      "Jeremiah", she yelled, "come here!" She then said "did I not tell you to say 'get behind me Satan' whenever he tempted you?"
      
      "Yes", the boy replied, "I said, 'get behind me Satan', then he went behind me and pushed me through the hole in the fence."

God so Loved

 

Has anyone reminded you lately of how much God loves you?  Gifts are often given as tokens of love.  Every time a Christmas present is opened, gifts are discovered inside the packages that shout I love you to the receiver of the gift.  Engagement rings are given to fiancés on proposal night.  They are usually very expensive gifts, and the sacrifice made to purchase the ring communicates volumes about the depth of love people have for each other. Just as a circle has no ending point, the circular form of the ring is symbolic of the never ending love and devotion the couple commits to each other.

 

We all need reminders from time to time. Remember how much God the Father loves the world.  So much that He gave, not gold or jewels, but He gave His one and only Begotten Son.  He did not give Him as an example only, but He gave Him as a sacrifice as well.  God loved us enough to allow Jesus Christ to die in our place. He did not give Him when we deserved Him, for it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us.

 

Whether you are right with God or feel too far from God to make it back to Him, remember the cross and hear it broadcast the old but ageless promise to the world which God created, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but has everlasting life." (John 3:16 nkjv)

              Soul Medicine (Prov. 17:22) A merry heart does good, like medicine.

                            All Booked Up

 

 

 

A newlywed farmer and his wife were visited by her mother, who immediately demanded an inspection of the place. The farmer had genuinely tried to be friendly to his new mother-in-law, hoping that it could be a friendly, non- antagonistic relationship. All to no avail though, as she kept nagging them at every opportunity, demanding changes, offering unwanted advice, and generally making life unbearable for the farmer and his new bride.
      
      While they were walking through the barn, during the forced inspection, the farmer's mule suddenly reared up and kicked the mother-in-law in the head, killing her instantly. It was a shock to all no matter their feelings toward her demanding ways...
      
      At the funeral service a few days later, the farmer stood near the casket and greeted folks as they walked by. The pastor noticed that whenever a woman would whisper something to the farmer, he would nod his head yes and say something. Whenever a man walked by and whispered to the farmer, however, he would shake his head no, and mumble a reply.
      
      Very curious as to this bizarre behavior, the pastor later asked the farmer what that was all about. The farmer replied, "The women would say, 'What a terrible tragedy and I would nod my head and say 'Yes, it was.' The men would ask, 'Can I borrow that mule?' and I would shake my head and say, 'Can't, it's all booked up for a year.'"

Power Trip

 

Selfish hunger for power can be very devastating.  The cruelty of Hitler comes quickly to mind as a good illustration of this point. Multitudes are on such power trips and are causing harm to varying degrees.  Osama Bin Laden may be the best modern day example. It would be frightening to look at the present cumulative effect of the actions taken by all who have chosen such power trips.

 

Even in view of the above argument, power trips should be encouraged.  Power trips that are Savior sensitive instead of self serving are the ones that are to be encouraged, however.  Jesus sent His disciples on a power trip.  Luke 9:2 says, "He sent them to preach the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick."  (nkjv)In verse one of the same chapter, the Lord Jesus Christ had promised to give them power over demons and diseases.  Jesus sent them on a power trip worth taking, a trip that will land one in a position that glorifies God.

 

The next time the urge strikes for a power trip, take the one with eternal benefits: the one that gives glory to God.
