Live It/Believe It

April 26, “Live It or Tell It” Acts 4:13-21 Mk. 16:9-15  Qeen Emma of Hawaii

Rick, hurting, broken, was at my door last night. His 3 month old baby had died four months ago and returned to the streets with no hope,  quit  a good job, usin speed again,  looking for the friends he had 15 years ago when he hustled–they are not here. All I could do was listen, give him some food.

St., Francis said, “preach the gospel–using as few a words as possible,” that is the way I try, failing alot, to live my life, for I not only believe in Jesus, I know Jesus.  That is what made the early believers so powerful, a mystery to the culture around them–they gave of themselves, all of themselves-caring for the sick, feeding the poor, sharing their goods–it was not the belief in Jesus–for there were plenty of other “myst ery” cults within their society–their lives lived out the Gospel–were a living presence of Christ.

For in living out the Gospel you come to know the Jesus who is real, vibrant, ever present.Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!

 

We need never look for universal peace on this earth until men stop killing animals for food. The lust for blood has permeated the race thought and the destruction of life will continue to repeat its psychology, the world round, until men willingly observe the law in all phases of life, ‘Thou shalt not kill.’”
~ Charles Fillmore, “The Vegetarian,” May 1920
