6-25-2012- MEN UNDER THE CONVICTION OF A MAN OF GOD


1 PETER 2: 12 = HAVING YOUR BEHAVIOR HONEST AMONG AMONG THE GENTILES: THAT WHEREAS THEY SPEAK AGAINST YOU AS EVILDOERS, THEY MAY BY YOUR GOOD WORKS, WHICH THEY SHALL BEHOLD, GLORIFY GOD, IN THE DAY OF VISITATION.


"REMARKS"

I WAS TALKING TO THE GOLF PRO TODAY AND ASKED HIM IF I COULD PLAY IN THEIR GROUP SOMETIME AND HE, KNOWING I WAS A MAN OF GOD, RESPONDED, ACE, YOU KNOW THESE GUYS DRINK A LOT AND THEY CUSS A LOT AND I AM NOT SURE YOU WOULD BE COMFORTABLE WITH THAT.

AT FIRST I THOUGHT, HEY THAT'S PRETTY NEAT, ME, AS SOMEONE WHO REVERENCES AND FEARS GOD, HAS INFLUENCE ON MEN AROUND ME, EVEN THOUGH I MAY,OR MAY NOT, PLAY GOLF WITH THEM.

IT IS LIKE A CONVICTION IN THEIR OWN HEARTS, THAT THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING ISN'T EXACTLY HOW A MAN SHOULD LIVE BEFORE GOD, OR EVEN A MAN OF GOD.

THAT IS A GOOD FEELING TO KNOW, JUST BEING KNOWN AS A MAN OF GOD, BRINGS SOME CONVICTION INTO THEIR LIVES, IS AT LEAST A CHANCE FOR THEM TO TAKE A LOOK BACK AT THEIR FOOLISH WAYS, AND MAYBE SOMEDAY, BE ENOUGH TO MAKE THEM WANT TO CHANGE THEIR LIVES AND LIVE A BETTER LIFE BEFORE GOD, YAH'WEH.

SOME OF THE POWER OF BEING AS MAN OF GOD COMES BECAUSE OF THE MINISTRY OF, "THE CHURCH AT TEXAS" AND SOME OF IT COMES FROM THE GOLF WEBSITE I HAVE CREATED CALLED:  "CHRISTIAN GOLF ASSOCIATION", WHERE I ADVOCATE THAT GOLFERS RECOGNIZE GOD FOR WHO HE IS, AND HOW HE CAN BE BENEFICIAL TO THEIR GOLF GAMES, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, THEIR OWN SPIRITUAL LIVES.

WELL ANYWAY, I KNOW IN TIME, WE ALL WILL HAVE TO ANSWER FOR THE GOOD AND THE BAD WE ALL DID ON EARTH, SO, MAYBE ITS TIME FOR SOME OF US, TO GET IT TOGETHER, BEFORE ITS TOO LATE.

I STILL PLAN ON GETTING IN THE GROUP, TO BE A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS, THOUGH IT SEEMS WHAT THEY ARE DOING, IS NOT REALLY ALL THAT DARK, LIKE SO MANY OTHER WICKED AND PERVERSE THINGS, ARE THAT GO ON IN LIFE.

SO, WE SHALL SEE GOD WORK ON THE GOLF COURSE, LIKE HE DOES EVERYWHERE ELSE, WHEN THERE IS A GODLY WORK TO BE DONE.
