The Church Mouse: Excited About What Mattters?
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” – Matthew 28:19
Have you ever been so excited that you just did not quite know what to do with yourself? Just what does it take to get you excited? Is it winning the lottery or buying a new car or maybe it is some ordinary thing like taking a nap, or eating your favorite
Let me tell you a little story, (it is true). The other day my grandson was with his Aunt. They had been to License bureau, to get his learners permit.
So as celebration of him passing the test, they decided to stop at Dairy Queen to get milkshake for him and herself. They get in line and order. When they get to the window to pay and get the milkshakes and the girl tells them that the car in front of them has paid for their order.
Well, they were so flabbergasted and excited that she drove out of the drive thru and got clear like a mile or two away before they realized they did not get their milkshakes.
Talk about excited!!?? (LOL)
Anyway they turned around and went back to and got the milkshakes. The girl at Dairy Queen was laughing and so were they. Now have you ever been that excited? Sometimes we all get a little bit crazy about that kind of stuff.
Well, I was telling a friend about this they said.
“Well, I would have went back also as this involved money and food.”
(That is a thing that made me go Hummmm!)
Would it not be wonderful if we could get that excited about God? I wonder if anyone ever turned around and went back tell someone about Jesus.
I said to the person I was telling this to:
“Would you go back to tell someone about Jesus?”
No answer; just a look. (You know like you have two heads.)
I think we, (me included) need to be telling more people about Jesus? Let me tell you about a dream that I have had several times about getting to heaven and having God ask me about Jeannie!
God says to me.
“Jeannie is not in heaven!
Where is she?” I ask.
God then tells me.
“It is your fault that she is not here, because you never ever told her about the plan of salvation. You saw her every day and never once did you talk to her about Jesus.”
I wake up right after that.
I am sure God is telling me by giving me this dream that I am not witnessing enough!!
I do not want to get to heaven and have that happen for real. So I guess I had better stop this writing and go find Jeannie and tell her about Jesus. That way I can get a goodnight’s sleep. What about you?
Prayer—Father, in heaven, we thank you for the many blessing that you gives us. We know these blessing are from you. And that you give us these blessing to make our lives better. Help us to be so excited about you that we tell everyone we meet about your love and mercy and the way to get to live eternally with you in heaven. Amen.
