Weekends in the Word

Call unto me and 
I will answer thee 
and will show you great and mighty things
which thou knowest not.
Jeremiah 33:3

This last week we visited our shopping mall where the windows of the Apple store (one of Beloved's favorite haunts) resembled the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.  Colorful sticky notes all over the glass windows held thoughts of remembrance for a man who, although some said was Jewish, was in fact, not.  But he did come from middle-eastern descent.

It is reported, in fact, that he was practicing Buddhism, which makes me sad.  Unless there was a decision to accept Jesus Christ as his Savior before his death, Christians will not see this man ever again.  

Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way,
the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me.
John 14:6

With that said, it is noteworthy to see that God reveals wonderful mysteries to both those who acknowledge Him and also to those who do not.  Steve Jobs is one of those who apparently did not thank God for the insight and ingenuity given to Him in the realm of technology.

Virtually none of us alive today in the USA and most of the world have been untouched by the inventions of this amazing man.  When Jesus told His followers to go into all the world to teach about Him, their imaginations could not even begin to visualize some of the methods in which that charge would be carried out in generations to come.  Even I (an ordinary housewife) am amazed how it has become my privilege and ability to help spread the Gospel via computer/Internet with my blog.  

If you are a Christ-follower, God has a plan for your life that includes sharing what Christ has done for you with those in your sphere of influence.  If you are like me and tend to get the spoken words all jumbled up, then maybe you can write. Or sing.  Or draw. Or ... (you fill in the blank).  Ask God to use you for His glory.  As Jeremiah 33:3 implies, He will show  you things you never even considered to enable you to obey His commands.
