    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    The countdown

    Matthew 24:

    40Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

    45"Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, 'My master is staying away a long time,' 49and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

     

     

       Let me share with you something that came to my mind this week. My mom had been gone to Romania for three weeks... and what would you find me doing on the day of her return? Desperately clean up the house as fast as I possibly could. Granted, I did not let the house go to rot in her absence, but I did want the house to sparkle for her arrival.
       Why was I doing this? I wanted to impress her, let her know that she could trust me to take care of things! ( as opposed to being grounded for the rest of high school ) I was able to get that nice sparkling feeling in the house, ( thank you late airplane arrival! ) but while I was flying from room to room cleaning, I thought about the cleanliness in our lives.
       How would you feel if God came to your house today? What would he see?
       We all live like we are never going to die, but this is unbelievably incorrect. We can die, we just avoid the thought of it. Avoiding the thought of death won't help you!
       If you died right when you finished reading this, what would God say about your life?

     To quote Switchfoot's song 'Dare you to Move' :


      "I dare you to move
      Like today never happened
      Today never happened before"

    I love that song! I actually heard a Catholic commentary on that Bible verse. I don't know what you think about the Rapture Trap, but Catholics don't believe it. A lot of Rapture Trap people use that verse to back up their beliefs, but the commentary I heard had a totally different take on it. Now if I could only remember what I heard...

    Anyways, that's my two cents...

    That was awexome! I mean, God's Awexome, the Bible's Awexome, Switchfoot's Awexome, and you're Awexome!

    Rock on, man. Awexome.
