Hey Love, I’d been so excited to get back into a groove here but have found myself a little reluctant about posting a podcast episode today. Months ago, I had set a goal of launching this season on this day and since I can’t really concentrate on much else at the moment and because in moments like these, it’s comforting to do the thing that just comes next, I give my offering.
Seconds after I uploaded this week’s audio file, I learned that my sweet dad is in critical condition, with tumors taking over his liver. Going to be with him and not sure when I’ll get to post next….
We all hope our loved ones pass from this stage of life quickly with as little suffering as possible. He has a small army praying that he’ll be ready to meet his Maker. For me, the message that God has deposited in me to share with you is more important than ever. There’s an urgency now… because the brevity of life is not a respecter of persons. Everywhere we look, we see reminders to “get our house in order,” which has to include your eternal destination, especially… right?
Isn’t it remarkable that the Father who fashioned us in the womb, makes it so easy for us to enjoy peace with HIM in Paradise forever with just a heartfelt “yes?” He knew we’d need a dramatic rescue, so He gave us Jesus. All we need to do is believe Him and say yes.
My reading today just happens to be from Colossians 1 in The Message; “This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time, but now it’s out in the open. God wanted everyone, not just Jews, to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: (when) Christ is in you, you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple-you’re ALL invited. That is the substance of our Message. We preach Christ…”
We’re all invited. Have you said “Yes?”
Make sure your house in order, Love.
Bye for now,
