Ladies & Gentlemen I present to you for your pure entertainment pleasure the continuing blogging saga that is ‘The Fortune Cookie Message Of The Week Club’. It inspired an entire month-long message series at Life Pointe Church earlier this year. Ela stated that (aside from ‘Bedtime Stories’) this is her favourite periodic series here on this blog, and Rebecca recently demanded its quick return during an unintentional extended hiatus.
Here we go with a brand new fortune cookie message that I received earlier today at Lunch at Panda Express:
‘You will be recognized as a leader.’
Ironically I’m posting this blog entry at the same exact time that I’m watching Pastor Paul‘s excellent teaching from this past Sunday morning (that I missed). It’s all about being a leader – being salt and light – changing the world around you – being a Disciple of God. It’s on the Life Pointe Church home page if you wish to check it out again (or for the first time). Good stuff.
1 Peter 2:9 (NLT, 2ND Ed.)
But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.
