rule one

 Wednesday October 21st,  Mark 10:  35Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. "Teacher," they said, "we want you to do for us whatever we ask."  36"What do you want me to do for you?" he asked.  37They replied, "Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory." Have your kids ever come to you with a similar question?  If they haven’t yet, they will.  When it happens, try not to laugh.  I wonder if Jesus had trouble not laughing.  We want you to do whatever we ask!!.  Yah, Right.  In the end our vision of a vending machine god will fall by the wayside.  But even now many preachers put forth the vision that with the proper prayers, proper lifestyle, proper giving, it can all be yours….. and if you act now, it will be given to you by grace……  Those trained in neither theology, logic nor basic skill of understanding often fall for it.  In the end, they too are all saved by grace, not because of, but in spite of their efforts.  Rule number one… God is in charge.  Rule number two… read rule number one.
