Well, the subject of gun control has been a hot topic for a number of months here in the United States. Some people are 100% for keeping their 2nd Amendment right in tact, while others say that guns kill people. Pistols, rifles, shotguns, and assault rifles are all very strong weapons and they can really pack a punch. There is another weapon out there with some serious power. This weapon has been sent around the globe, and it most definitely can be found in most homes here in America. It is easy enough for a child to use and more powerful enough to turn a community inside out. Even our government is afraid of this weapon, and they are doing anything they can to stop the spread of this powerful, life changing weapon. This weapon helps with defense against the enemy. It is be used recreationally with friends and family. This powerful weapon can also take a full grown man to his knees in a split second. The unique quality of this weapon is that while it helps kill the old man it brings life to the new man. So what is it? Where do I get one? How do I use it? The fact is you probably already have one. It's known as the Bible or the Sword of the Spirit. Hebrews 4:12 says, "The word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword.." God's word is powerful enough to change lives, heal wounds, and guide our steps. Our society wants to delete its words and silence its message, so Christians I am sounding the alarm. Here is the battle cry, "Fight for your right to bear arms." Jesus died so that His message could bring life, and we have the power within us to change lives with this powerful message of hope. Owning a Bible is a privilege and a right here in the United States that was given to us by our founding fathers. We should never take that for granted. We should exercise our rights and "use it (the Bible) before we lose it."
I guess I should start off by saying, "I'm sorry." It has been way too long since my last blog. I don't know about you, but I like to eat. I eat out of necessity and sometimes out of want. Because I live in a
gluten-free home I love eating real bread when I can. Bicsuits, cornbread, or maybe even a donut. Have you ever tried to abstain from eating for a day? For a skinny preacher like me that could be a death wish!! When you go a day without eating or maybe you just miss one meal you feel tired, unmotivated, and sometimes sick. Food is needed to help our bodies have energy and food helps us receive the vitamins and nutrients we need to survive. Jesus spoke a lot about food. He said that "Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." He also said, "Give us this day our daily bread." So what is Jesus talking about when He references bread? Biscuits from Cracker Barrell, toast from Old Crow BBQ, or donuts from Krispy Kreme? He is talking about His Word, THE B.I.B.L.E., The Good Book,The Scriptures. It is known as the Bread of Life!! So if we go a day without it we are spiritually tired, spiritaully unmotivated, and sometimes spiritually sick. Most professing Christians try gorging themselves on Sunday morning with the Word hoping that it will keep them full all week long, but it doesn't. I want to encourage you to partake of the Word on a Daily basis!! It will keep you full, help you focus on ministry, and give your the energy to ward off the devil.
