Day 8: BSG Christmas Countdown
Ein Blick auf dein Leben
"Wie hast du seit deiner Bekehrung gelebt? Nach eigenem Ermessen? Hast du dich Christus ganz ausgeliefert? Beanspruchst du dann immer noch das Recht, deinen Lebenspartner selbst zu wählen? Das Recht hast du nicht mehr! Beanspruchst du noch das Recht, dir deine Freizeit selbst einzuteilen? Das Recht hast du nicht mehr! Beanspruchst du noch das Recht, dein Geld nach eigenem Ermessen auszugeben? Das Recht hast du auch nicht mehr! Hältst du es für dein gutes Recht, über deine Ferien - wie und wo du sie verlebst - selbst zu verfügen? Auch das Recht hast du verloren!
Vielleicht ist das gerade jetzt deine Situation - du lebst immer noch nach deinem eigenen Willen. Als du die Vergebung der Sünden aufgrund des vergossenen Blutes Jesu Christi bekamst, hast du die volle Bedeutung dieser Tatsache mit allen Konsequenzen nicht erfasst. Nach dem Plan und dem Willen Gottes sollte ein Umbruch stattfinden, der dich auf einen ganz neuen Weg und in ein neues Leben bringt. Auf diesem Weg geht es nicht mehr nach den Wünschen des Fleiches, wie aufrichtig sie auch sind, sondern unter der Leitung Gottes: “Denn so viele durch den Geist Gottes geleitet werden, diese sind Söhne Gottes.” (Römer 8,14).
Wenn du dem Heiligen Geist das Recht einräumst, in deinem Herzen die Herrschaft Jesu Christi wieder aufzurichten, dann verlierst du das Recht, nach deinem eigenen Willen zu leben, was in deinen Augen recht ist - ganz zu schweigen von dem, was falsch ist.”
(aus: Christus in euch - W.Ian Thomas)
Usually, I refrain from posting or reblogging anything here that is not English so that everybody can follow my tumblr/nobody feels left out, but I love this post and want to have it on my tumblr, so please bear with me :-)
I used Google Translate. It was not perfect, but I could understand the principle. It is a beautiful post and I can see why you love it. Thank you for sharing it.
O God, who by the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin prepared a worthy dwelling for your Son, grant, we pray, that, as you preserved her from every stain by virtue of the Death of your Son, which you foresaw, so, through her intercession, we, too, may be cleansed and admitted to your presence. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
and it’s amazing
but wait there’s more

How Do Court Reporters Keep Straight Faces?
These are from a book called Disorder in the Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking place.
