Well while Cee’s autumn seems to be starting, ours is ending. Our nights are beginning to get that wintry feel and snow fly was last week. Here’s what I saw on my walk the other night.
the autumn shine is being replaced with winter’s stark beauty.
Here are this week’s questions and answers:
- Do you prefer eating the frosting of the cake or the cupcake first? Who needs cake? If it wasn’t wrapped around the frosting in the middle I would probably discard the cake altogether!
- What is your favorite cheese? I love mozzarella, but on spaghetti you can’t beat a good parmesan!
- What is your biggest fear or phobia? (no photos please) Failure. You would think by this point in my life I would be over that but nope.
- Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight? Probably not by choice. I figure why expose yourself to dark spirit powers unnecessarily? If you’ve got to stay in a “haunted” location I think the spirit should be dealt with first.
Thanks Cee! Great questions.
“And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering. “Jude 1: 22 NLT
kai eleeō hos diakrinō
Which could also mean “Help the wretched ones who have separated themselves through hostility.”
When someone rises up in anger in the church and threatens the peace of the body of Christ how do you see them? Do you see a trouble maker? Do you see a demon deserving decimation? Or do you see a wretched soul that has lost so much faith that he or she can only react in pain?
The secret-slipper-inner is operating out of a place of brokeness that is being monopolized by the Devil. It is not them we are fighting against according to Ephesians chapter 6 verse 12
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
So when next that divisive one rises up in a church near you pray and ask what gift of mercy could flow from you to heal them.
In our next discussion on Jude we will get into the really hard stuff.
