  CMA Chapter Meeting at IHOP - Come Follow Me

We had a small but lively chapter meeting this evening, mostly related to the preparations for the ROT Rally next week. Don and Susan are now officially members again of New Life Riders. They made at least one motion each, just to exercise their new powers (of membership that is). Here are a few pictures taken after the meeting out front of IHOP during the fellowship time.
As usual, click any picture for a larger version.

My devotional this evening was on Mark 1:17, borrowed and converted into modern language from My Utmost for His Highest.

"Come follow Me."

One of the greatest hindrances to my trusting Christ is the excuse that I have the wrong personality. We make our personality and our natural tendencies, barriers to trusting Jesus. The first thing we realize when we do trust Jesus is that he pays no attention to our natural tendencies. We have the idea that we can make out natural personality a gift to God, but you cannot give to God what is not yours; there is only one thing you can give to God, and that is your right to yourself (Romans 12:1). If you give God your right to yourself, He will make a holy experiment out of you. God’s experiments are always successful. The one thing that marks a saint’s life as being different from everyone else, comes from their abandonment or complete trust in Christ. In the life of a saint there is this amazing wellspring of life in their response to all of life challenges; The Spirit of God is a well of water springing up and eternally fresh. The saint realizes that it is God Who engineers circumstances, and so there is no need for whining, just a reckless abandonment to Jesus. So do not let experiences guide your life, instead trust God and let His uniqueness work in others as He is working in you.

If you abandon yourself to Jesus, and follow His guiding when He says "Come," He will continue to say "Come" through you. You will then go out into life being the echo of Christ's "Come." That is the result in every soul who abandons themselves to Jesus.

Have I come to Jesus?

*Note: Just to be clear about the previous line, yes, Jesus is saying come to Me. If you are not a christian, that is the most important thing you can do, accept Jesus as your Savior. But, for those of us who have already accepted Jesus as Savior, He is also saying Come to Me and TRUST Me completely. So often we try to do GOD'S work in our own strength, which is POINTLESS!. Only God can do God's work. The way it works is, we work is by letting God WORK THROUGH US! Ok, I will stop preaching now.

Can I hear an AMEN!

Oops, I went all Baptist on ya.

Praise the Lord!
