ArtistOfWords I know of him but they quit making wheels out of rocks by my time lol jk
prairwarur try youtube
prairwarur Don called people "you hockey puck"
prairwarur meaning dumb
ArtistOfWords Last night I was in another room and ppl begsn debating flat earth vs globe via scripture. I gave them their answers but it still didnt end...made the whole chat go downhill
ArtistOfWords Maybe I should call Chris that lol
prairwarur I do
prairwarur my little hockey puck
prairwarur Chris gives back as good as he gets, for sure.
ArtistOfWords Yes he does
prairwarur I Just heard a great saying on the marilyn and Sarah show
prairwarur talking about healing
prairwarur talking about forgiveness
ArtistOfWords Dont know the show but go on
prairwarur the preacher said a lot of tmes, folks value their loss more than they value the cross
ArtistOfWords Id agree
prairwarur the put the pain over Jesus' pain of Calvary
ArtistOfWords It is an elevation of self which is the root of pride
prairwarur when we value what Jesus did for us more than what people did to us, then the bitter waters turn sweet.
prairwarur oh amen!
ArtistOfWords Even in our downed state sin still suggests we glorify ourselves instead of God
prairwarur we can't let others and circumstances have control over us
prairwarur Jesus wants us free
prairwarur depression, too
prairwarur rooted in selfishness
prairwarur rooted in "why me, Lord?"
ArtistOfWords And here is the main idea for the last 2 months teaching on Acts....how do we then give the gospel to that person in a way that they understand?
prairwarur you and I speak bible speak. They don't know it yet.
prairwarur bible speak is a foreign language to the lost.
prairwarur someone who never read a Bible? come on, now!
ArtistOfWords I am fluent in scripture but starting to identify more as Paul did in Athens where the verses are not what I always use to make a point
prairwarur we can tell them what is written, but we need to break it down.
ArtistOfWords I do know my mission field in my calling now btw
prairwarur and that is easy to do if we hve internalized God's Word
ArtistOfWords A place or time I do not know but I know the people are the rougher sort who do not understand big words or Christian terms and practices of the modern church
prairwarur when I grew the most is when I taught little children. Sometimes children's material is really a good way.
ArtistOfWords I know who I am preparing for is the people who don't understand scripture when it's quoted to them for instance
ArtistOfWords So as you say I need to know it, live it, breath it....etc
prairwarur actions speak louder than words, too.
prairwarur many times folks would say that it's not so much what is said as what is done and shown.
prairwarur like the mexican camp
ArtistOfWords Only by absorbing it can we give it in a way other than to read it aloud....sometimes we gotta get out in the field and help change the tractir tire that's stuck in the mud
prairwarur they kept saying to us, "Why do you care? Why do you help?" The same answser each time, "Jesus! "
prairwarur changing someone's tire for them - Jesus
prairwarur washing dishes, mowing their lawn, washing windows.
ArtistOfWords Works the same way in ither parts of the country and world too
prairwarur the kids at church have a group that does handy work for the elderly.
prairwarur shut ins
ArtistOfWords I've long encouraged our church to just walk the streets of our neighborhood and pick up trash
prairwarur I gave our youth group the choice of a going to their party at public school at christmas time, or going with me and the church group to the nursing home. They chose the nursing home.
ArtistOfWords Good choice
prairwarur blessed me so much!
ArtistOfWords Csn you imagine what may happen if churches cleaned their own neighborhood?
prairwarur and I really respected them for the choice they made.
prairwarur well we do, Art
ArtistOfWords Think of it from the sinner's perspective on thst one lol
ArtistOfWords Not all do though is my point
prairwarur we have programs like that, too. Cleaning the highway, etc. Not just the churches, though. It's sort of a big deal here.
prairwarur we are to take care of God's earth
ArtistOfWords You want an outreach into the lives of others...show them you care and love them for no other reason than cause you care
prairwarur that is a Biblical principal
prairwarur and God's animals
ArtistOfWords Yes it is but Im speaking from a purely evangelical view here
prairwarur of course, Artist! love for the sake of love
prairwarur that's the unconditional kind of love
prairwarur 1 John 4:8
prairwarur God is love
ArtistOfWords Ppl may ask what are those guys doing? What are they up to? Then the next week they see you again and the next and the next
prairwarur God does not withhold His love if we disobey. He can't. He is love.
ArtistOfWords Eventually they will get curious enough to ask why and you say simply cause it was dirty and needed to be clean
prairwarur people do that. People say, "Ill love you when you do what I think you need to do, or be."
ArtistOfWords When they recognize you as the church and say why Jesus? You simply say cause I was dirty and needed to be clean.
prairwarur and they will see the Jesus in you!
ArtistOfWords I could do a sermon just on that right now...fired up today
prairwarur Praise God!
prairwarur then God is telling you it needs to be heard!
prairwarur go for it!
prairwarur you know folks ghost all the time
ArtistOfWords My time at work is limited. I cam share for a time but never know when my time will be up
prairwarur of course
prairwarur same with many of us. Time presses. things to do in 3D.
ArtistOfWords Gotta go lol
prairwarur God's speed!
