Oh Man! What a day I had. I woke up at 10 am by the alarm clock alerted me to go to sociology class at 11 am, so I somewhat quickly got dressed, ate a banana, checked my email, hopped on a bike, and peddled to class hurridly. I made it just in time, so I sat waiting for my sociology professor to start lecture. Meanwhile, I simply grab my iPhone, remembering wanting to open Instagram, but decided not to, because it seems too much like what everybody was doing mostly, so I decided to do the thing that seems better. I opened my Bible app and began the plan of the day about being better equipped to spread God’s love.
The reason, I titled this “Oh Man!”, which does not mean much, except “oh man!” guessed what’s happened today to perhaps hook your attention and it was the first thing that popped to mind when I decided write.
How do I begin this. I have to say that my sociology class, taught by my professor, is thought provoking. He mentioned many topics that is making me ponder from time to time, which I still do now.
A little background about my sociology professor, who is not just a professor, but also a minister, co-chair of some department, and a person who couples asked to marry them. My professor is a sarcastic guy and sort of LIKE himself, in my opinion. When he teaches the class, in some instances, it almost seems as if he is pondering to himself. I like his lecture a lot, but there has been time I questioned him as a person. He mentioned something about doing thing because of credential, hey! he is honest about that part, which made me think, well okay, maybe being a minister part is also because of credential and maybe his relationship with Jesus may not be a part of why he is in the field.
I enjoy his lecture and many of his point of view, but it made me think that not all speaker who are representing church or Christianity are preaching from the love of Christ? I am sure there are people who do so out of love for Jesus, but there may be people who also don’t.
Since the day that I realized I needed Jesus and I am still needing him right now as I am typing. That without him, I would be anxious, restless, care about the people, about the world, be full of myself, and wouldn’t be happy. If given the opportunity, I would share God loves for me and how he is transforming and helping me by gifting the Holy Spirit to guide me on a moment to moment basis.
If anyone came upon my blog and is going through a hard time, I wanted to tell them about Jesus and how he is rescuing me. I wanted to share his love for me to you. I realized that on my own, I am empty, but through him I’m constantly wanting more and more of him.
Again, Jesus is the key to why we are not happy with ourself and who we are.
I wanted to end this tonight. Thanks for reading along and making sure to comment and don’t be shy to comment on my blog.
