Hi guys!

I love the way that the scriptures throughout old and new testament coorelate so well. Just like in Leviticus and Mark it talks about holiness. Our level of holiness through God with the responsiveness and willingness of our self to "get" out of the way and allow Gods Way to carry out the diving purpose we have in our lives. And then in Mark the last verse about following Jesus and when he returns he and his holy angels of God will come for those who seek Him, that is awesome! Holy, Holy, Holy!! Love that old bible hymnal.. Also, I loved Mark 8 verse 17 and 18: "Jesus knew what they were saying, so he said, "Why are you arguing about having no bread? Don't you know or understand even yet? Are your hearts too hard to take it in? 'You have eyes-can't you see? You have ears-can't you hear? Don't you remember anything at all?"
--Doesn't that sound typical of us, as humans..here the disciples had Jesus, the Living Son of God right there in their midst and they didn't register in their head the miracles that just always "showed up" in their lives..God says that His Ways are not our ways, His Thoughts not our thoughts..we can't even imagine or fathom the possibilities that God and the windows of Heaven will open up if we just believe! Put our hope and trust in Him, the author and finisher of our faith. Wow!! God is Good!! God bless..

Jesus IS Lord. There is no question, no dispute, no argument. But where the 'problem' come in is.....do we ALLOW HIM to be Lord of our lives? Being under a "LORD" is not a concept that we, today, are used to. We probably never owned slaves or were a slave, our self.

Although we rarely use this term in our daily lives, we are all quite familiar with another word: boss. That is basically what Lord means—one possessing authority, power, and control. People, however, do not like to be "bossed" or have someone else in control over them. They rebel, they make excuses, they sneak and do what they want even when their "boss" (possibly at work) tell them or want them to do something.

A follower of Christ - a Christian - should submit to the Lord in every aspect of their life. But what does that really mean? You will imitate the Lord and put the Lord's will first, above your own. TOTAL SUBMISSION. But this is a foreign concept. We want to be in control and therefore, it is difficult to give that control to another, even if it is Jesus. Too many times I think we live our lives, do our own thing, and only seek the Lord when we are in trouble, on Sundays, right before we eat, etc. It's like I tell my piano students -- "Why in the world would you practice piano YOUR WAY when it has been proven that "MY WAY" works??" Well, it's the same thing with God. His Way Works -- so why in the world would we not want/allow Him TOTAL control over EVERY part of our lives? I pray that I will allow God complete control in every aspect of my life 24/7.

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me — a prayer to the God of my life." Psalm 42:7-8 NIV. I love this verse. I love the song with "deep calls to deep" it really makes me examine my Christian Faith and walk. How far are we willing to go? Are we willing to take up our cross and follow him whatever the case may be? He's calling you and he's calling me. Nothing can come before him. He will do whatever it takes for us to align up with him. Gods way Is the Highway! Jump on!
