Created in Christ Jesus…

In Quick Thought,Scripture on August 16, 2011 by The Spillover

God made us new creations in Christ Jesus…
So we would always be happy?
So we can take it easy and play it safe?
So we can separate ourselves from the dirty people in the world?

Or for some other reason?

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.  -Ephesians 2:10

Somebody…

In Quick Thought on July 30, 2011 by The Spillover

You may be a state trooper, you might be an young turk
You may be the head of some big TV network
You may be rich or poor, you may be blind or lame
You may be living in another country under another name

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody

-Bob Dylan

Jump, Frog

In Perspective,Quick Thought on July 25, 2011 by The Spillover

Three frogs were sitting on a log. One decided to jump. How many frogs were left on the log?

The answer is three.

Just because the frog decided to jump does not mean he actually did.

We all have some level of disconnect between what we decide to do and what we actually do.

Here’s to finding the courage to jump when He tells us to.

This Morning

This morning, let’s make church anything but normal; anything but routine. Let’s sing, worship, preach, and listen like what we say is true, is actually true.

Our Function

In Quick Thought on July 18, 2011 by The Spillover

Whenever we act with the explicit intent of glorifying God, we are carrying out the function for which God created us.

Be Still

In Quick Thought,Soul Food on June 30, 2011 by The Spillover

Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
Come and see the works of the LORD, the desolations he has brought on the earth.
He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear, he burns the shields with fire.
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
-Psalms 46:6-11

The God who watches over us and tells us to trust Him is the God who can melt the earth away with His voice alone. The God who is in control of our lives is the God whose works are clear as day to any and all who have eyes to see. Through the madness of this world and the storms within our souls, we have the unbelievable opportunity to root our existence in the God who created all things.

Two Types

In Perspective,Quick Thought,Soul Food on June 28, 2011 by The Spillover

There are two types of people on earth: Those who are dead in sin, and those who are dead to self (and alive in Christ).

Nothing on earth matters as much as being honest with yourself when you consider which type of person you are.
