First Things First!

When we are all born we have one major role in life to play. We are a designed from before birth to be needy, dependent, self-centered, ungrateful, chaos-causing, demanding sons and daughters. Our role and function is to take whatever peace and harmony that our parent(s) had developed and bring them huge amounts of stress, sleep depravity, and in many cases financial pain. It is really a simple role to carry out and we come equipped with the ability, drive, and demanding spirit to make it happen. Then we start growing up.

“AND” and “&”

alphabetYou may or may not know this but the ampersand (&) was once the 27th letter of the English Alphabet see photo (left) from 1836 text book. Early in the development of the English language two letters “E” and “T,” were commonly combined “et” which meant “and.” Over time the writing of those two letters began to look more and more like what we know today is the “ampersand.”

Even the name “Ampersand” comes from a contracting of the following phrase at the end of the reciting of the alphabet “ x, y, z and per se and.”

If you are still reading after that intro hang with me for a few more lines. I promise there is a spiritual connection or two coming.

The “Us” and “Them” World vs. the Kingdom of God

Human’s love, love, love each other. Don’t we? Maybe what I mean to say is that we humans just love, love, love each other when it’s just “Us.” Confused? Stop and think about the people that you love, the people that you know, that you care about, that you would gladly do anything for. Chances are, for most of you reading this; the number of people you love is a very small number of people out of the 8 billion that are currently alive on the planet. In fact, it’s probably smaller than 100 total people or 0.00000125% of people alive today. Crazy, Right?

Questions the church should be asking

Short lived were the days when culture and Christianity were so in-line that no one needed to really explain what it meant to be a Christian. “Everyone” believed in God, right? The question of that bygone era was which type of Christianity did you adhere too? What was the right thing to believe about God? People knew what it meant to be a Christian. It meant to be an American, not a communist, and to be a member of a church.

However, did you know that in 1954 the phrase “under God” was added to the pledge of allegiance? Before then it wasn’t in there. Did you know that in 1956 the phrase “In God We Trust” was placed on American money for the first time? Before then it wasn’t there. Did you know that the United States Constitution contains no reference to God?

Opening Ceremonies

Have you ever closed your eyes and imagined this scene that John talks about in the book of Revelations? Rev. 7: 9-12

“After this I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands. They cried out in a loud voice, saying, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!’ And all the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, singing, ‘Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might
be to our God forever and ever! Amen.'”

I can only imagine the joy that will be pouring out of everyone there as they stand in the presence of unimaginable glory and peace. I feel as though I got a glimpse of that scene, be it very small, but nevertheless a glimpse this past week.
