Today was a very exciting day. Our church rented out a movie theater so that we could do one service all together, rather than the three we usually do on a weekend. It was a lot of fun for me, we did a little intro video, and seeing something I made on a full blown movie screen was a cool moment. Worship was exciting and loud, which i personally loved. Pastor Mark had a very challenging message that he was very passionate about. Since I was running media, I was paying close attention, but not really having things sink in, but one quote just grabbed a hold of me and really made me think today. It was a quote from Penn of Penn and Teller. Paraphrasing, he basically said, If someone really believes that Heaven and Hell is real and that Jesus is really the way to life, then how much do you have to hate someone to not say a thing about it to them?
I can’t be concerned about creating awkward situations, or not fitting in anymore. I have to start loving others like I love myself. Cause the story of my life has been one of self love, and a passive hatred of others: that must just make God want to puke when I live my life like that and then try to stand before him with my bag of meaningless crap that I think makes me worthy to be in His kingdom. God, don’t let this be my story anymore.
