One of the most outstanding things that happened at College Briefing this last weekend was a video of Dr. Lockeridge praying, "My King." I don't even have words to describe the experience. Check out the .pdf, read it aloud--really loud--it's powerful.

2 COR 13:5-14 Msg

This was the passage for my reading this morning, and once again, it hits a need. Verse 14, "The amazing grace of the Master, Jesus Christ, the extravagant love of God, the intimate friendship of the Holy Spirit, be with all of you," was especially telling. I'm not sure if, in my life with God, I really understand what this means.

I know about Jesus' amazing grace intellectually, but do I know it experientially? I know about God's extravagant love intellectually, but do I know it experientially? I know about the Spirit's intimate friendship intellectually, but do I know it experientially? Definitely something to chew on.

I have to wonder how different my demeanor would be, how different ministry would be, if I knew these things experientially.

I couldn't help it. I got my own fotolog. I'll probably put backgrounds there mostly, but today it's my cat.

Bible Gateway : EPH 5:1-20 Msg

I read this passage this morning as part of my hanging out with God. Some of the phrases were especially pointy:
v 2 Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love.
v 6 God gets furious with people who are full of religious sales talk but want nothing to do with him.
v 20 Sing praises over everything, any excuse for a song to God the Father in the name of our Master, Jesus Christ.

There's more that pricked me, this is sufficient. I realized after reading this, that I really have no idea--at least not experientially--why Paul contrasts being drunk with wine and being filled with the Spirit.
Bible Gateway : 2PET 3:17-18;

So I come back from College Briefing--God did a number on me this weekend--and I discover that this is the passage for Talbot convocation: "...grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ..." and that the topic is 'authentic ministry'--that's the area where God did a number on me. God's pretty sneaky!
