I don’t know about you, but I can say about myself there were many times when I felt like saying, “I want to do something meaningful, but who am I to do it?”
Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. // Philippians 4:4-7
It is a useful book for those who find themselves wondering about the questions like “If God created everything, who created God?” and other logical fallacies like this one.
When the devil throws your sins into your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: “I admit I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know the One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God. Where He is, I shall be also.”
I work with people who say they believe God is there, but don’t yet trust Him. I have non-Christian friends – some are agnostics, on their way to find out what on earth and in heaven is really going on.
Some simply don’t care, living in this moment, the “here and now.”
And sometimes I still wonder – how should I behave around them?
Should I appear to be “just like them” or should there be something different about me?
I wasn’t the only one who did not enjoy Elsie’s teaching methods and in the evening next day, as I was dreading the upcoming program, good news came – she was no longer a guest speaker, and my pastor took her place. He was great and gentle as always, speaking in love, and although I don’t think kids suspected that anything was wrong, it was like an ointment for my soul. Everything was okay again. Yet, I learned my lesson – I needed to be prepared and ready at all times.
Have you ever asked yourself that question? Or, perhaps, the better way to say it is “How many times have you asked yourself that question?” Remember choosing the table to have lunch during the break at school – maybe you were nervous when you came for the first time – “Will anyone there accept me? Will anyone save a seat for me? Where will I fit in?”
