Well everyone, if you were wondering why I haven't made any posts recently it's because I just got back from the beach. I went there just to stare at the sun with sand in my pants and spend some time with the people I love. I am happy to tell you that I am back and have spent the day watching videos on youtube and packing...the slight downside to the packing is that I am leaving tomorrow morning for the windy city (Chicago...) Real early.
So I am sorry to tell you that I will not be making more blog posts till around sunday-monday. I hope I don't disappoint you guys too much.
But I will tell you this, I have a surprise change coming rather soon to my blog as well as a new youtube channel coming out. So you guys have some good things coming your way!
So as my parting gift for this week I'll leave you with my deliberately hand picked video of the week. Enjoy.
Over the past couple months I have grown interested in parkour and freerunning, this video is a great example of how sick they can be. I'll keep you updated in the future on what's going on!
Hey everyone, today's verse of the week comes from Paul's first letter to the Thessalonians. This passage speaks to the christians in Thessolonica regarding their spiritual walk.
"Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God." -I Thessalonians 4:1 (NKJV)
This verse stuck out to me mainly because of the phraseology used: "...to please God." These specific words emphasized in my mind the fact that we out to have the heart's desire to love God and please him, rather than follow a set of the rules primarily for the rewards and lack of punishment. Our heart's desire ought to be to please God in our deeds, rather than just conforming to a set of rules out self service/preservation. This verse should cause all of us to really desire to please God.
