The Lost Sheep

Sorry I've been gone so long everybody! But now... I'm back! Check out the links on the sidebar. Get ready for another Young Adult meeting soon. Hey! How about a name for this little endeavor of ours? Send me your idears. Anyway, moving along...
Most of us have heard this passage before, but it is always good to be reminded from time to time how awesome and loving our God truly is:

Luk 15:1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him.
Luk 15:2 And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them."
Luk 15:3 So he told them this parable:
Luk 15:4 "What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?
Luk 15:5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
Luk 15:6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.'
Luk 15:7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Psalm 121


This verse just rocks:
1 I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
   From where shall my help come?
2 My help comes from the Lord
   Who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not allow your foot to slip;
   He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
   will not slumber of sleep.
5 The Lord is your keeper
   The sun will not smite you by day
   nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will protect (keep) you from all evil;
   He will keep your soul.
8 The Lord will guard your coming out and
   your coming in
   From this time forth and forever.

Stagnant Water

This past week I have been led to do some pretty random new things. I think it all came together last night at a local college fellowship. This was the passage of study.
Mark 5:24
24; And he went off with him; and a large crowd was 
following Him and pressing in on Him.
25 A woman who had a hemorrhage for twelve years.
26 and had endured much at the hands of many physicians,
and had spent all that she had and was not helped at all, but rather had grown worse-
27 after hearing about Jesus, she came up in the crowd behind Him and touched His cloak.
28 For she thought, "If I just touch his garments, I will get well."
29 Immediately the flow of her blood was dried up; and she
felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction
30 Immediately Jesus, perceiving in himself that the power proceeding from
Him had gone forth, turned around in the crowd and said, "Who touched my garments?"
31 And His disciples said to Him, "You see the crowd pressing in on
You, and You say,' Who touched Me?'"
32 And He looked around to see the woman who had done this.
33 But the woman fearing and trembling, aware of what had happened
to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
34 And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made
you well; go in peace and be healed of your affliction.".
So what does it all mean? This past week I have been compelled to fast from meat but when anyone would ask why, I didn't know what to say except, "I dunno" or the Sunday School answer (whatever that is). But what God has no doubt been trying to do is an all too familiar routine to Him. Shouting at me, "HEY!! WAKE UP!!! LIFE WITH ME IS NOT A ROUTINE!!!" It is unfortunate (to say the very least) that we can get so complacent and fall into our routine of "God life" that we forget who God really is and how he can work in our life. We sit back and say "Oh praise the Lord!" but do we really mean it? Are we really praising?
I find it sad that this has been on my heart about my life.
I feel like part of the crowd, crowding around Jesus pressing in on Him. I'm surrounded by Christian music, coming to church, praying, reading, you know... "Church Life". 
Why does it feel like a job to me?
I've lost that connection, that relationship that God wants with me.
Water that collects in tires, swamps, or stays calm becomes stagnant. Mosquitoes lay eggs in this still, stagnant water. Mold and algae collect. This water may not have to move around at all but it becomes dirty, useless.
By contrast, have you ever noticed that it is harder to swim in a flowing river, but the water is clean and pure? 
The crowd presses in on Jesus, but one woman reaches out in faith. I want to reach out. I'm tired of being stagnant water. I want to fall into the River of Life.
Psalm 40:
1 I waited patiently (intently) for the Lord; And He inclined me and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
3 He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; many will see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.
Don't forget the Young Adult group tomorrow at 5pm. If you can come please call me at 530-864-2151
Much Love through our Savior Jesus
