James Paul a recent visitor to this blog had left a comment questioning the power of prayer. James, I was wondering how to answer your question when I came across this animated video clip. I don’t know about you, but I found myself crying at the end of it.
The departure of Steve Jobs the co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc. has sparked a lot of buzz in the Christian community and church blogosphere as well. To tell that Steve Jobs was a man who had the whole world in his arms wouldn’t be exaggerating. I am not seeking to pass the judgment on Steve but I feel very concerned about his soul, (Matthew 16:26). Many sources claim Steve was not a born again Christian.
I am not a Roman Catholic, (Actually Rev. Bill Clementson informed us that the Bishop of London, and all at the Royal Wedding, are Church of England or Episcopal as they say in the States but is like an Evangelical form of Roman Catholic) but this sermon delivered by Rt. Rev. Richard Chartres the Bishop of London at the British Royal wedding is worth a look. Click here if you can’t view the embed video.
I received the following thoughts from a senior Pastor, and decided to publish it in my blog (I believe it made me to think much differently about reading the word of God).
Ever wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone?
What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
1. What if we flipped through it several time a day?
2. What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
3. What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
4. What if we treated it like we couldn’t live without it?
5. What if we gave it to Kids as gifts?
6. What if we used it when we travel?
7. What if we used it in case of emergency?
8. This is something to make you go….hmm…where is my Bible?
9. Oh, and one more thing.
10. Unlike our cell phone, we don’t have to worry about our Bible being disconnected, because Jesus already paid the bill.
Makes you stop and think ‘where are my priorities? And no dropped calls!
Have a blessed and wonderful day!
