An Ordinary Guy

February 22, 2012
<

Steve was just an ordinary guy. He quietly served in a church I attended years ago. He helped prepare communion, shoveled the church sidewalks in the winter, and mowed the lawn in the summer. He spent time with teenage boys who had no fathers in the home. I often heard him telling people at church in his quiet way how good the Lord was to him. During prayer meeting he didn’t talk much about himself but would ask us to pray for those he was telling about Jesus’ forgiveness and love.

A verse in John 10 about John the Baptist makes me think of Steve. People said of him: “John performed no sign, but all the things that John spoke about this Man [Jesus] were true” (v.41). John didn’t perform miracles as Jesus did. He didn’t talk about himself but came to “bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe” (1:7). He said of Jesus, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (1:29). My friend Steve bore witness of that Light as well.

Our aim, as followers of Jesus, is to do the same—to “bear witness of the Light.” We’re just ordinary people, serving God in our little corner of the world. With our quiet deeds and words, let’s point others to the Light!

Just what do Christians look like?
What sets their lives apart?
They’re ordinary people
Who love God from the heart. —D. De Haan

Christians are ordinary people who are committed to the extraordinary person of Christ.

Read: John 10:31-42

John performed no sign, but all the things that John spoke about [Jesus] were true. —John 10:41
Bible in a year:
Deuteronomy 20-22

You Are a Half-Hug
When you set your mind to it, you can accomplish almost anything. You just need to believe in yourself.
You are always appropriate and professional. You never overstep any boundaries.

You are a bit reserved and hesitant. You like to assess situations before you act.*
You handle attention with grace and class. You are popular simply because you're so likable.

You Are a Group Hug
You are the type of person who lights up a room. People love to be around you.

You believe that the world, people, and life are incredibly fascinating.
cYou are a complete flirt, but all of your play is harmless fun. You don't flirt seriously.

You Are a Bear Hug


You are optimistic and bright. You have a self-fulfilling sunny outlook on life.
You tend to overwhelm people with your energy. It's impossible for you to hold back.

You love your friends and family more than anything else in this world. And you always let them know.
You are a childlike person who values adventure. You believe life is magical.

And you're proud to stand up for the United States of America!

Hurrah for the Land of the Free and the Troops who serve Her!!!

Thank you for this evening's fun quiz! *Hugs*

You Are a Comforting Hug
You're the type of person who has already learned a lot from living. You are ready and willing to help others now.
You are naturally empathetic. You wouldn't know how to stop relating to people, even if you wanted to.

You are truly caring. You show you care by dropping everything to help.
In relationships, you are a loyal partner - but you also value your space. Absence makes your heart grow fonder.

Good evening, Connie!

*HUGS*

Happy Mardi Gras! We're tightening our belts here for Lent - Mrs. MacNessa is giving up wine for Lent, so I guess I'll have to do so also to show solidarity. At least it's only 40 days. :)

We partied at dinner - and no we didn't have one of those Shrove Tuesday pancake dinners! Mrs. Mac Nessa baked some nice pork chops with tricolor peppers and onions and we had some good wine with dinner. Tomorrow - tuna casserole - day of fast and abstinence for observing Catholics. I'm not sure yet if I'll be able to get to Church for ashes. Work schedule is long and then PT.
