I’m off to the Mt’s in Eastern Oregon for the next week. For those of you out there that have made your way to reading this, check things out and let me know. I’m really trying to take things to a new level. I’ll be taking fotos and mental notes for some good stories to tell.
I would have to say that inside i’m self centered. I think of myself in most respects first, I do things for other out of personal satisfaction, but also truthfully because I think it would make them happy. ”
Do I understand Hot & Cold Rev. 3:16 ‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.’ Can I be Cold for Christ and be saved? Will I have a House in Heaven or a Street Corner? Do these concepts even apply?
Here is my definition of a Cold Believer. I believe in God, I Desire to follow the Word of the Bible, and I’ve accepted Christ and His Death as an offering of payment for my own “Sin” (yet to be fully defined). I don’t think you would know I was a Believer if you didn’t ask. I would be hypocritical and judgmental if I attended Church. I pray for people when I know they need it, but I don’t pray much for myself. My communication with God is slim at best, but feel more honest. Distracted though. I understand that Christ is coming and the world is going to shit. Mind my own business concerning opinions, but never defend Jesus when He’s mocked.
Is this the fate of a Cold Believer Matt 22:
8″Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. 9Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’ 10So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
11″But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. 12’Friend,’ he asked, ‘how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ The man was speechless.
13″Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
14″For many are invited, but few are chosen.”
I’m not sure but if your cold will you know to wear wedding clothes to the banquet?
i enjoy these things in the proportions you can see.
It’s almost 7am and im here editing photos and typing blog entries, and it’s still dark outside. Ive got a cup of coffee and my pajama pants still on; I need to leave for work. Digging through photos, editing color, and cropping off dead pixels is always the way to start a good day.
Portland has the best City skyline I’ve seen. Every time I drive over the I5 in the morning I just want to stop and check it out. What’s even better is, when you have to look back to the road, you can’t help but see Mt St Helens and Mt Hood. Totally covered in snow these mountains are looming like giants in the distance as if they watch the city like guards.
