So I think i mentioned in one of my previous posts that i absolutely love music! I was having difficulty earlier today with this blog entry but then the lyrics to this song popped in my head. "Aint nothing like a g thang baby two locked out niggas, so were crazy. Death Row is the label that pays me, unfadeable so please don't try to fade this."
Now you can't tell me that the big "G" in my life doesn't have a sense of humor & isn't the realest in the game. There I was struggling with my Christian blog post & God put one of the most gangsta songs in my spirit & says run with with it. And believe it or not the words just starting flowing like water.
What I find extremely fascinating is that if you look back in biblical times God always made sure that his son Jesus Christ met the people where they were. He didn't require them to come up to his level but made it a point to make certain that he was accessible to them. He hung out with murderers, prostitutes, haters, adulterers, Pharisees, you name it & he was among them. I think it's safe to say that God is an equal opportunity employer. That is, at saving souls. He wants to make certain that everyone has a fair shot at salvation. No discrimination on his part whatsoever.
I distinctly recall a story in the bible where a group of people were attempting to stone a young woman to death that they considered to be a murderer. I guess that was the law at the time. And Christ simply checked them by saying
"He that is without sin among you, let him cast a stone at her"
This goes to show you that God almost always challenges the status quo. Much like I'm attempting to do with this blog. Just when you think you got him figured out he'll throw a curve ball at you.
I would have never imagined myself quoting a Dr Dre joint featuring Snoop on here. But every now & then God will shake it up a bit. Apparently there is someone out there who will come across this post at some point in time and God will use it minister to them. No doubt about it! And who am i to question God?
Believe it or not ladies everything God presents to the world isn't always wrapped in a gift box with a pretty bow on top. Fluff is good at times, but given the hard knocks of life sometimes you need a God that'll be raw & real with you. As they say nowadays who will keep it "100".
I just want to leave you with this final scripture and then ill get out of your hair.
Mark 3: 4-6
Then Jesus asked the people, “Which is the right thing to do on the Sabbath day: to do good or to do evil? Is it right to save a life or to destroy one?” The people said nothing to answer him.
Jesus looked at the people. He was angry, but he felt very sad because they were so stubborn. He said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” The man held out his hand, and it was healed. Then the Pharisees left and made plans with the Herodians about a way to kill Jesus.
You mean to tell me they were going to try and kill him just because he didn't follow protocol? I guess they overlooked the fact that he was trying to address a dire need. They just couldn't get past themselves or the law.
I absolutely love God! There isn't much more I can say but its a "G" THANG BABY. Once you get that, you don't have to understand his logic or the reason why he does what he does. You'll learn to trust him because you realize that he has a greater plan in mind for your life & you just go with it.
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
