(Matthew 24:42-44)”

“This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you,
that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness,
we lie and do not practice the truth. (1 John 1:5-7)
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light,
we have fellowship with one another,
and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.”

Give it up for Lindt, too

The traffic on the way to Bonner Springs Toastmasters and how much time remains until Obama’s Last Day have recently reminded me about this Word of the Day at Dictionary.com - pugnacious - inclined to quarrel or fight readily.
For a time, I considered the inevitable return to a position at Arby’s, and such impossibility causes much frustration for me, which I have since accepted. Bureaucratic entanglements continue to slow my first day at my job, which should be early next week.

“And John bore witness: ‘I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him.

Bring the beat Back 023

Things that only I can do, while noble, like be available for a friend on a weekday morning, have more to do with a month of unemployment than the hero’s journey; as if I’m relating Proactiv to a Word of the Day from Dictionary.com - selenology - the branch of astronomy that deals with the nature and origin of the physical features of the moon...
“But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

A new job has yet to become a Word of the Day at Dictionary.com - reify: to convert into or regard as a concrete thing. Yesterday, my friend Ben was kind enough to purchase a ticket for me to again see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and later we watched much anime which included Gundam 0080.

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? (Matthew 7:7-12) If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”

Whirlwind weekend 026

To get out of the house, I visited friends and a Word of the Day from Dictionary.com - cineaste - any person, especially a director or producer.
Thursday night, I visited my friend Ben and we watched a few episodes of ‘One Piece,’ where aspiring pirate Luffy and his Straw Hat crew misadventure through comedy and danger in pursuit of the Treasure of the Grand Line; and ‘Silver Spoon,’ a unique contemporary slice of life about a boy who attended Junior High in the big city, whose only goal was to be as far away from his parents as possible, thus transferred to an agricultural high school on the northern island of Hokkaido.

“Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling,
consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession,
who was faithful to him who appointed him,
just as Moses also was faithful in all God’s house.
For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses--
as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself.
(For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.)
Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant,
to testify to the things that were to be spoken later,
but Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son.
And we are his house if indeed we hold fast our confidence
and our boasting in our hope. (Hebrews 3:1-6)”
