Thought for the week

Jesus is the Lighthouse

"...he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes." - John 12:35b
Tom Landry, former coach of the Dallas Cowboys said, “The thrill of knowing Jesus is the greatest thing that ever happened to me…I think God has put me in a very special place, and He expects me to use it to His glory in everything I do…whether coaching football or talking to the press, I’m always a Christian…Christ is first, family second and football third.”
What a wonderful man of God! Well, Tom is now in heaven, watching his team from the best seat in the house! But before he died, he told a great story of the captain of a battleship who, in the middle of the night, saw the light of another ship coming directly at him. The captain radioed the oncoming ship and said, “Turn south immediately.”
The response was, “You turn south immediately.”
The captain was furious. He radioed back, “This is a battleship. I command you to turn south immediately.”
The response was, “This is the lighthouse. You turn south immediately.”
I imagine that captain felt pretty ridiculous. But are we any better? Often we have an attitude just like that captain’s. We are arrogant towards God and mankind. We expect others to get out of our way, and we ignore God’s guidance for living our life. Then, suddenly, we find ourselves shipwrecked and feeling like fools.
Jesus Christ is the Lighthouse trying to warn us of danger, and lead us to safety. I encourage you to trust Christ and be willing to follow His leadership in your life. He will keep you out of a lot of trouble.

Thumbs up

Palm Sunday is tomorrow beginning Holy Week as we follow Christ's pathway through Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and His Triumph-Over-The-Grave on Easter Sunday.

Thanks Ken for the timely reminder of God's Saving Grace ONLY available through faith in our Risen Living Lord Jesus Christ!

Thanks, Ken.
Not everyone can be queen.....there has to be someone standing on the curb to wave as I go by.
