Along The Way (16/Sept/05)

Friday morning... I've been thoroughly enjoying The Ragamuffin Gospel. It paints a picture for me of Jesus that makes it easy for me to see why people left everything to follow Him. I really want to love the people that Jesus does. I want to love the way that Jesus does. It strikes me as I look at Jesus in the gospels that He seems far less concerned with winning converts and much more concerned with genuinely caring for people. People 'get' Jesus in that way. Nicodemus... the Samaritan woman at the well... the Centurian... Lord, will you help me be more like this?

I'm enjoying the sermon prep for this weekend. Though it's far afield of where I am going Sunday, I've been taking in a lot of Jeremiah - causing me to see how fickle my own faith can be at times, but yet how amazing God's love is all the time.

My sister Debbie and brother-in-law Ralph are coming for a visit this weekend. It will be really nice to have them worship with us on Sunday. With Dave here a few weeks back, this is two of my four siblings that have been here in the last few weeks. Doug & Diann - time to step up!

Lord, will you help me get the things done that I need to complete today? Will you help everything else wait? Along the way, will you show me what's really important and what's not?
