Celebrate 2017

I think this is the last graduation card of this year? No promises though... homeschoolers sometimes have graduations that go into August... :P

Well, today there's something that's been on my mind...

It's easy to do things. And I think that's why so many people think they can earn their salvation.

It's easy to go to church. It's easy to get baptized. It's easy to just go through the motions of Christian life because that's how you were raised or that's what you think you have to do.

But I want to talk about being not just doing.

Doing is important to the Christian life, that's for sure. But I think it always gets a little more emphasis than being because it's easier and less exciting.

Ever wonder why we use the expression "Be in God's Word"? I think part of it is because we should literally be in it. We should immerse ourselves in the Bible and what it says.

Not only that, but we should be developing a relationship with the Lord through prayer. Because knowing the Bible doesn't guarantee that you know the Author too.

Doing can be more glamourous than being. But being is what brings you closer to God.

You can fool a lot of people when you do all the right things.

But you can't fool God.
