What do Gilmore Girls, West Wing, brownie-in-a-mug, hot fudge cake, and Thursday have in common? You guessed right! Five Minute Friday Party at Kate Motaung‘s place, well, she actually rents a room at Twitter.com – standing room only last night, I couldn’t keep up nor type fast enough to fully engage. It’s hard to come up with one-word, unforgettable comments! I am convinced those 45 and under have fingers more adept than mine for keying on small devices!!! Last night? I almost felt too old to be there. Kind of like a square peg in a roomful of round slots. I’ll give you an example, and I may make enemies on this one. Take conversation about the long-running sitcom, Gilmore Girls. I binge-watched two seasons of this show to find out what I was missing and I didn’t like it at all – the agenda was far too liberal for me; the humor too dry and cocky, and I found it insulting. Like I said, square peg in a round hole!
Moving on. I find Kate’s word prompt extremely difficult to write on this morning. But write I will because I have learned, as in all things, this too shall…
Jesus did a lot of passing through while He walked earth. And wherever He passed through lives were changed.
In John 4 He “had to” pass through Samaria – Samaria was considered a less-than place, Jews loathed Samaritans. But the day Jesus passed by, something radical took place in the life of a woman. A Samaritan woman no less. Jesus was hanging out at the well, the center of activity for women at a very hot time of day, He had sent His disciples to fetch some food. A woman came to the well when no one else was there, because she was “THAT” kind of woman. She learned how worthy she was, the day Jesus PASSed by.
In John 9 Jesus was PASSing by again, somewhere, and He spotted a man – a blind man – unbeknownst to the blind man his day was about to change – his life was about to be transformed, literally from darkness into life. I love what the man said when questioned,
I don’t know WHO or WHAT this Man is, all I know is the day he PASSed by I was blind and NOW I CAN SEE.!
Jesus did so much good as He PASSed through.
Don’t let Him PASS YOU BY – stop Him.
He’ll change your life in the PASSing…
