You Got Slimed!

Who here remembers the great Nickelodeon show “You Can’t Do That on Television”?  The high point of that show was always folks getting that disgusting looking slime poured all over their heads.  I could only imagine how nasty that stuff probably smells and feels.

I saw a verse this morning when I was flipping through my bible that made me think about that nasty slime.  Obadiah was a prophet back in they day that had a vision that takes up all of about 1 full page in my bible.  But wow does that 1 page have some pretty powerful stuff in it!

slimedObadiah 1:15 says this: “The day of the Lord is near for all nations.  As you have done, it will be done to you…”  Now that part is not so bad, mainly because we have all heard that before and know that in general when we treat folks nicely, we get niceness in return.  The verse then says, “…your deeds will return upon your head.”  That’s right…ON YOUR HEAD!

So, let’s all take a moment to reflect on all those not-so-lovely things we’ve done…  The guy we cut off in traffic and the person we spoke rudely to, all of that comes back and smacks us in the face!  That’s an eye opener for me and changes the way I look at doing something that I will regret later.  This doesn’t make it so easy to dismiss or excuse being an idiot or jerk anymore….ouch!

Where are The Men?

There is an obvious lacking of men in church today.  When I say men, I mean men that are truly leaders that are seeking after God.  There are plenty of guys, but very few MEN who actually love the Lord and desire to lead according to His desires.

Too often, men come to church because they are tagging along.  They either come to find a girl or come to impress a girl.  Rarely do men make the decision to come to church on their own, and when they do, they get turned off by the lack of men with passion in the church.  The majority of activities and groups in a church are lead by women.  Just take a look at the women’s ministries in churches compared to the men’s ministries.

The church needs men with passion to serve the Lord!

Why do you think men appear weak in the church?


Men Choose Death

As men we are called to love our wives and be servant leaders. We get hung up on authority and have a desire to serve ourselves over others.
