Sunday Musings

3:55 PM

I received an interesting email today from "Word of Life". This weeks devotional piece was written by Steven K. Scott author of "The Greatest Words Ever Spoken". In it he talks about how a few years ago the rage was everyone wearing bracelets and t-shirts with the lettters WWJD on them, which stands for What Would Jesus Do.

In this piece he says the more important question we should ask ourselves is "What Did Jesus Say?". That's a bit harder. Most of us have an idea what Christ said, but have we really studied his words?

Instead of followingi Jesus's actions maybe we should rely on what he said. Remember he his promise in John 8:31-21 "If you abide in my word, you are my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free".

Jesus promised us nothing if we copied his actions, but he promised us much if we learn his words. The lessons, instruction and encouragement that Christ gave His followers were meant to give us everything we needed as guidance for everything that we encounter. They also promise us that if we follow his word we will experience God's grace and power.

His instructions for the upcoming week were that we spend time reading and learning the words of Christ. We should read these instructions for our lives, and stand upon the promises He made. I, for one, think it's excellent advice.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
