crazy, weird, UNIQUE!

I want to die like that!

This evening Bro. Glenn Dunaway talked about not getting comfortable. I did the same exact lesson in my youth class this morning. That excited me so! God does that all the time! We used some of the exact same verses! Think about how awesome that is. The Bible is HUGE!

“And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’ (‭Matthew‬ ‭25‬:‭40‬ NLT)

We should not get so comfortable that we stop challenging ourselves and become stagnant. Don’t get complacent and end up not working for The Lord. Whenever you do something for someone in love, you are doing it for Jesus. We are His hands and feet. That is such a great calling, vocation and duty.

Another thing he said in his message tonight was that an older man once told him he had been a deacon when he was younger, but he had retired from the Lord. What!?! You don’t do that. I mean, I guess you CAN, but a Christian is to never “retire” from our Christian work here in this life. If that happens, then you are a “lukewarm” which is not a Christian–at all–according to the Bible.

So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth. -Rev. 3:16

I want to stay in the mouth!!! (I know, a weird visual, but you get me.)
I want to continue my work. I want to be, no matter what age I am, ON FIRE for The Lord. I want people to look at me and ask WHAT HAS GOTTEN INTO YOU!?! … Which might seem like a negative question, but it’s really my prompt to say “It’s JESUS!” This has happened before and I want it to continue. I want to love on people and help others and treat others the way JESUS did. I want to SHINE a light all around so people may see the truth and the way. I never want to stop that.

Retire? Ha!

Last night I watched a movie where this saying was used: “He died with his boots on.” This, of course, means he died working until the very end. THAT is the way I want to go! If I go tomorrow, next week, next month, year, decade…live till I’m 95.67 years old or beyond, I WANT TO DIE LIKE THAT!

I will keep on working for MY GOD! I will keep my work boots on and try my best to show others why they should too.

(BY THE WAY: Bro. Glenn Dunaway is 74 years young and still working! I thank God for him!)
