whoever knew that being a teacher meant waking up at 5:00 am, getting to work at 6:20 am, leaving work at 7:15 pm, sleeping at 9:30 am, six days a week? But I do the loving for the good one
Maybe the clearest explanation of teaching by example can be found in the book of Hebrews: “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith” (Heb. 13:7). The author of Hebrews actually called us to consider the outcome of a teacher’s lifestyle. We can get so caught up in examining a person’s doctrinal positions that we overlook his or her pattern of life. But this is essential because Hebrews calls us to imitate the faith of these people. If you are going to make disciples, you need to be putting your faith into practice so that people around you can imitate your faith
Today I went to church and we sang the song (forgot song name).
For some reason it feels so good to be able to worship the Lord on Sunday mornings with other believers after solely being with people who haven’t accepted the good news for three weeks. Today was kind of a reminder of how our worship is not necessarily the enthusiasm we have when we sing. Worship is understanding how we individually are transformed through Homeboy’s Words, the words we speak, and the actions we do.
This is a secular-ish song, but Nujabes - FILO is one of my favorites because a lot of its lyrics give the themes of maintaining a pure heart.
Live life like a testimony
Simple rhymes in difficult times help a friend
Through a lonely tunnel at the end, Every maze is a funnel into a wine bottle
And corked inside a message so mind boggling, a puzzle
Amazed at the grace having reached a goal
Knock twice on the gate heaven preach a soul
True knowledge of self shine brighter than all
For one part getting polished you better the whole
The sum of the characters carry over your role
Sorry. It made a lot more sense during service this morning. I had a few tears because I was genuinely happy to worship to true God and remember how unworthy I am and how awesome a thing Jesus did. I guess the point of this post is God is the Good One.
This year is shaping up to be one where i question whethet or not i am qualified for this job. Prayers please.
In a way, im glad we had this conversation. It kinda made me feel great to know what i thought was true… and im also glad we could still be awesome friends.
But when you told me that you felt like we were life domestic partners… i believe i will regret not picking you up whrn you came to baltimore for the rest of my life
