Praise & Pretzels

G1. “hey Girl!”

G2. “hey wsup with you?”

G1. “nothing, yo, I was at the club last week, and I meet this guy, hmmm”

G2. “really”

G1. “yeh we were getting it on, dancing, drinking, it was so much fun!”

[conversation continues]

G1 “anyway so my grandmother invites me to go to church on sunday with her coz I aint been in a minute. and when I get there I be seeing the same guy from the club up on the praise team singing, saying “oh Jesus bless me, bless me” I was [inaudible] …. £$£%**?@

G2 “DANG”

G1 “see that’s why I don’t go, HYPOCRITE. God aint gonna bless him, and I aint gonna call him”

This was the conversation I overheard whilst at Ben’s soft pretzels. (highly recommended by the way.) The hidden things of darkness came and bit this man in the behind. But more worryingly he calcified the already hardend heart of a child of GOD from being in community with his people. A few things that immediately jumped to mind

1. It really doesn’t matter who you are, you have influence. For good or for evil.

2. Your sins will, I repeat will find you out. Today, tomorrow, or at the judgement bar of GOD.

3. In darkness there is rotteness. In light there is forgiveness, but if we are still wearing the garments of rot and decay in light, well thats just stupid.

Numbers 32:23

23 But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the LORD, and be sure your sin will find you out. (ESV)

    A very sobering anecdote. Its fascinating how God teaches, ‘disciples’ us when we least expect to be taught… in a pretzel place, just looking for food. Fascinating!
