The reason there are “christians” that act like something in the cast of “Mean Girls” is that Christianity is a spiritually imparted thing, not a learned thing, not a church you join, not something you inherit from your parents, and not a lofty goal to achieve- by continually striving to get there. “Real” Christianity is receiving by God’s spirit His ways, his revelations, his fruits of the Spirit, and most of all; HIS kind of Love. The types who think they have it (and have just learned to use the bible to hurt people) are the types that will kick a new Christian when they are down, so watch out! Don’t be deceived either, into thinking these false representatives of Christ are a true picture of “who he is.” Their image may say christian while their actions continually display behavior of the evil one.
No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. 1 John 3:9
“The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Gal 5:19-21
Being real here; ‘The solar light garden” and how it came to be Well, I hope this helps or encourages someone out there.
I’m not just showing off my tiny landscaping project, as there are much better ones out there. But what is significant about this one is, it was born in the midst of a quarrel about “Lights.” I love lights! Christmas lights, all kinds of lights! so when Solar lights came out I was like wow those are COOL!
I got some, lined them along the sidwalk. Tim has a riding mower now (exciting for him) he has to pull them all up for the mower to go over the sidewalk AND pick up sticks and branches and rocks. So he was not too keen on the lights along the sidwalk last year.
I thought well he’s right and put three by my deck this year and he decided to mow close to he pulled those up too (my lights) breaking one! OH LORD I was so upset about this!
He isn’t into my lights I’m not into his mower woes! HA All kinds of things went through my head. “UNFAIR” My mind screamed I do all kinds of inconvenient things for YOU! (Love me love my lights!)
ha ha ha
Oh My What a big battle can arise in our minds from tiny things!
So I prayed “Lord please help me not be so upset how do I solve this?” I came in the house “let’s make a solar garden!” With Bricks around it! So we did. Tim dug up all the grass and did the actual landscaping. See, he does love me!
