Two Unrelated Thoughts  

Posted by Daniel in

During the sermon this morning the man preaching (not our regular pastor) encouraged us to read the rest of Colossians to gain a better understanding of the passage we were studying. He said it was only a few pages, and should not take much time at all to read it. This reminded me of something I have thought on before. I think frequently as Christians we treat the Bible differently than other books in regards to how much we read. We easily sit down and read 20 or 30 pages of a book, or an entire section of the newspaper, but gasp when we think about reading more than 2 or 3 chapters in God's Word. It is generally no more than 3 or 4 pages, ok fine sometimes it might even be 7 pages, but it is never much longer than what most people read in blog posts. I certainly agree that we should take Scripture seriously, and spend our time and meditate on it. I just wonder if we have gotten a skewed perspective on reading it, and look at it in an incorrect view.

Adam Clarke's commentary on Aaron interceding for the Isrealites after their grumbling against Moses. (Num 16:41-50)
If Aaron the high priest, with his censer and incense, could disarm the wrath of an insulted, angry Deity, so that a guilty people, who deserved nothing but destruction, should be spared; how much more effectual may we expect the great atonement to be which was made by the Lord Jesus Christ, of whom Aaron was only the type!


It's ALIVE!

So yes I've been absent, life has a way of getting in the way of blogging and other activities. As to life, it has been interesting and changing as of late. Things that in some ways I would not have preferred happening, but I think in the end are for the better, and if nothing else grow me in my sanctification. We are so often eager to let God be sovereign in things that we want to do, and I think even accept Him saying no in those things, but if it is something we most certainly don't want to happen, then we have a much harder time accepting God's providence. However, it is always for our better, even if it is not something we thought would ever happen, or want. (Which has me wondering lately about the sovereignty of God is unbelievers lives but thats for another day.) I am doing an internship at Luby's cafeteria this summer. It is going fairly well, I don't think its what I would want to do, but not a bad job.

I made yeast rolls this morning for breakfast, and was going to post pictures, but I can't find my camera cord, so... Maybe I'll post those later. For those of you who remember my allergies, yea... not sticking with those too well at the moment lol.

I thought I had more to say somewhere, but maybe it will reappear in my mind at some point, probably in the middle of church of course. Oh and no, my spelling and grammar has not gotten better since I last blogged. Sorry, but not really.

So stay tooned for more of something, assuming anyone reads this anymore... (yes I meant to put tooned)
