I was looking out the window tonight, watching a group of campers praying right outside at one of the picnic tables when it made me start thinking... When was the last time we talked to God? You know, just found a quiet place away from the noise and comotion of daily life and just sat down and prayed? God said in His Word that He wants to hear from us, I mean, He knows what's going o in our everyday life, but He wants us to talk to Him about it.
I remember talking about a piece of scripture earlier (shortly after this website was created) and I want to talk about it again.
Romans 12:1-2 "1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spirituala]'>act of worship. 2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
When I joined the support staff here at Centrifuge at the beginning of the summer, I sat down in the middle of my bedroom floor at home and prayed that God would use this time to teach me and help me grow closer to Him. I used this passage as a part of that same prayer as well. I want to encourage this to everyone. Stop thinking about yourselves and start thinking towards God. Don't become so well adjusted to the ways of this world that you forget that your primary purpose here on earth is to lift Him higher and higher. Don't argue with one another constantly because something didn't go the way you thought it should have. Instead, come to one another in love and peace, praising God's name the entire way. He is King, whether you like it or not and He is alive to this day. The only thing keeping you from knowing Him is yourself. God gave you free will so you can have that opporitunity to choose life or death. The world has chosen to condemn itself for its own, lustful desires. But I have chosen life through the Lamb who was slain because of my sins, because of me... God bless you all.
