Be Still and Know - Sunday, 7/18
by L.Strickland | July 20, 2010
For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago
We did learn a new term today: ‘Reduction ad absurdum’, which refers to anything pushed to absurd extremes. "Consider it a peaceful way of settling an argument or a discussion by concluding that your opponent is right then walking through it to the end to see it out", Pastor Randy said. I like that, it may be a tough stand to take at times - especially when you are in a heated or offensive situation, but practice becomes habit.
Throughout my notes from this Sunday’s service I keep being reminded of Psalms 46:10-11: ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord God Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah' ('selah' means to “pause and calmly think about that”). When you find yourself in a conversation you don't agree with, consider the peaceful way of settling it and be still - know that He is God.
“I believe in the power of Jesus…I live by it” -Pastor Randy Scroggins
