What's going on, it 104 degrees, it will soon be August and Christmas is a long way off? Exactly! At Christmas we work at the homeless shelter passing out food for our "day" of giving, then we "rest up" for next year. Be Careful! In pride, Peter thought his faith was stronger than all the other disciples and swore that he would never leave JESUS. Then when the time of testing came, he denied even knowing CHRIST. The "evil one" uses our "resting on our laurels" to keep us ineffective for GOD'S Kingdom today! He wants us to be so "prideful" that when the time of testing comes, we too will fail. The "evil one" wants our failures to wound us so much that we feel disloyal to our faith and overwhelmed with shame. Mark 14:27, "...I will strike the SHEPHERD, and the sheep will be scattered." So, instead of getting a "Froppie Loppie" (whatever they are called) at Starbucks use your coffee grounds two or three times and give the LOVE of CHRIST to a Church or any organization that feeds the poor today! MAKE SOMEONE'S CHRISTMAS SPECIAL TODAY!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
