Every summer my church puts on a conference that has many services throughout a week. This past week has been our conference entitled Unshakable. I spent most of the time helping out in the Nursery and teaching my 2r old to Kindergarten babies but I was able to go to two of the eight services. Spending 30+ hours at church this week really got me thinking and I immediately knew what I wanted to post about. So here y’all go.
But Leshea get to what that has to do with Noah being drunk. Don’t tell me ya Rick Rolled me with the title. Hold on and stay with me.
Y’all know when you’re little and in children’s church learning all those simplified bible stories. Well, let me tell y’all they are all dumbed down lies. Ok, not really but do you see where I’m goin’ with this.
· Noah was a drunk at times and that’s why people thought he was crazy for building a boat when there had been no rain.
· Yes Rahab was a spy that helped the people but she was also makin’ money off her poo nanny.
· And as great as it was that David slayed the giant and won one for all the little people they failed to tell me that as he got older his pride got in the way. He was shackin’ with a married lady. When that married lady got preggers he had her “left hand man” ya know like the Josh Turner song, killed on the front line.
· Saul was runnin’ around killin’ Christians and actin’ a fool before he turned into Paul and got his life right.My point is if God can use them than surely he can use you. Y'all start actin' like the champion you are. The Bible doesn't treat us like we deserve. Stop harpin' on your weaknesses cause in the end that's what makes you strong. And remember. "You may not be what you wanna be but at least you ain't what you were.
Hebrews 11: 1-6
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead. By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.” For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Whelp, that's all I got. Y'all enjoy your weekend.
