A Great Way to Listen to Scripture (via The Vicar’s Wife)

This is worth a look at and I agree – a great way to Listen (& read) scritpure!

We had a helpful sermon series on Colossians earlier in the year, and I’m looking forward to hearing Lizzy Smallwood speak from the same book at the Northern Women’s Convention on 9th October. In the meantime, this is a brilliant reminder of the riches of Chapter 2.

Did Jesus use a modem?

Authour Unknown

Did Jesus use a modem,
At the Sermon on The Mount?
Did He ever try to broadcast fax,
To send his message out?
Did the disciples carry beepers,
As they went about their route?
Did Jesus use a modem,
At the Sermon on the Mount?
 
Did Paul use a laptop,
With lots of RAM and ROM?
Were his letters posted on BBS,
At Paul@Rome.Com?
Did the man from Macedonia,
Send an E-mail saying “Come?”
Did Paul use a laptop,
With lots of RAM and ROM?
  
Did Moses use a joystick,
At the parting of the sea?
And a Satellite Guidance Tracking System,
To show him where to be?
Did he write the law on tablets,
Or are they really on CD?
Did Moses use a joystick,
At the parting of the Sea?
  
Did Jesus really die for us,
One day upon a tree?
Or was it a hologram,
Or Technical Wizardry?
Can you download the Live Action Video Clip,
To play on your PC?
Did Jesus really die for us,
One day upon a tree?
  
Have the wonders of this modern age,
Made you question what is true?
How a single man, in a simple time,
Could offer life anew?  How a sinless life,
a cruel death, Then glorious life again,
Could offer more to a desperate world,
Than all the inventions of man?
  
If in your life, the voice of God,
Is sometimes hard to hear.
With other voices calling,
He doesn’t touch your ear.
Then set aside your laptop and modem And all your fancy gear.
And open up your Bible,
open your heart,
And let your Father draw near.
“Be still and know that I am God.”

The Devil’s Beatitudes

If the Devil were to write his Beatitudes, they would probably go something like this:

Blessed are those who are too tired, too busy, too distracted to spend an hour once a week with their fellow Christians in Church — they are my best workers.
Blessed are those Christians who wait to be asked and expect to be thanked — I can use them.
Blessed are the touchy, with a bit of luck they may stop going to church — they are my missionaries.
Blessed are those who are very religious but get on everyone’s nerves — they are mine forever.
Blessed are the troublemakers — they shall be called my children.
Blessed are those who have no time to pray — they are easy prey for me.
Blessed are the gossiper — for they are my secret agents.
Blessed are those critical of church leadership — for they shall inherit a place with me in my fate.
Blessed are the complainers — I’m all ears for them.
Blessed are you when you read this and think it is about other people and not yourself — I’ve got you.
