Laughter from others - by Dylan Novakowski

Can't believe how broken and upset I feel. I am one of Gods children He made me new. 
I just got first hand last night that Christians are outsiders and get mocked at in this world. My friend bought me coffee tonight and he bought tents for camp day to support Tim Hortons kids camp.  He gave me a couple. So I thought in my mind I will put scripture on them. So on one I put Romans 1:16 and the other John 3:16. Well I got laughed at by the workers and they thought it was funny laughing and saying "ok holy one." Well that did not sit with me well at all and I did not say anything to them. But my friend said that was cool what I did and said "you know it is true that you are meant to preach the word and do missions and that was a good thing what you did."   I said thanks not realizing what he said and I have been thinking on it that at least the message was sent and they realized what scripture it was so I hope it sinks in and God can use it. God does use crooked sticks to make straight lines.

Romans 12- Dylan Novakowski

The meaning of Romans 12 - Dylan Novakowski

Believers are to dedicate themselves to God. (1,2) To be humble, and faithfull to use their spiritual gifts, in their respective stations. (3-8) Exhortations to various duties. (9-16) And to peaceable conduct towards all men, with forbearance and benevolence. (17-21)
"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

It's saying to be separate from this world. When you accept Jesus Christ into your heart you should think differently, you should think godly things. The more you read the Bible the more you will be like Christ..
He sent Us out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. For such as time as this. Luke 9:2 NKJV)
When did weChristians think it was ok to keep the Word for ourselves?  Just think who was the one that brought you to Christ? For me it was PS. Jamie and I still don't know what word brought me to Christ. All I know is that it's our duty to share the word it's our job. When we got Saved are life changed for the better not for worse. Christ never said to keep it a secret He said spread the Good news that Christ is King and He came to SAVE US Amen. There's just as much Christ blood on our hands as the next person. 
It goes back to Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

Never forced. Natural.

This morning we have learned of the sounds of nebulas, had a toad come visit and let our nine month old baby girl experience dew on her toes for the first time. We were up since six.  We made the most of each opportunity in between getting ready for school and tidying up dirty plates.  Spring always brings me back to the roots of how amazing our Creator is.  As the earth fills with the roots of new saplings and flowers my roots dig deeper into Christ.  His love nourishes me and replenishes my soul.  Living within Christ, such a gift and so much thankfulness.  I want to sink deeper and deeper into Him.  It happens as His Spirit rains down and replenishes and provides and organically and naturally it happens. Never forced, it's natural. It's what I was created for.  In total awe of God, reflecting perfect Love. I am just bathing in this warm reminder this morning.
