This is post 100 on this blog! That makes me a Centurion, right? I’ve commanded a group of 100? In Matthew 8, Jesus heals the Roman Centurion’s servant because of his great faith and humility. The Centurion wants Jesus to heal his servant, but doesn’t feel worthy to have Jesus under his roof. Instead, he professes the faith that, if only Jesus would say the word, his servant would be healed.
Jesus marveled at his words, and said,”Go your way. Let it be done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed.
I feel this blog is an exercise in faith and humility. I trust that when I stare at a blank post, that God will bless my thoughts and words so that I can speak to the right person, or work out my own understanding on a subject. In addition, I have found, though this blog, so many other great reads, that I visit every week, or multiple times a week. Those are often so good, I feel like a complete failure with the English language and with the Word of God.
At the same time, just like the Centurion, Jesus shows up and blesses me more than I could hope.
Since I’ve written 100 posts, I thought I would look back and share some of my favorites, and bring some of those “servants” forward for a second chance.
What I Deserve - If we’re the bride of Christ, what does the prenup look like?
Contagious – when Christianity goes from isolated case to pandemic
The Letter and the Spirit – how fundamental attribution error leads me astray
Some fun(ny?) ones:
Biblical View of Boobies - it’s about boobies
Culling the Word – if you think Jesus drank Welch’s, you’re right!
Why all the king’s horses and men botched it - A humpty dumpty of a post
And finally, the post that started it all: A Wail and a Whisper
If you’ve read all 100, bless you. If you’ve taken the time to comment and engage in this blog as a green space, thank you. If you have a post (mine, yours or someone else’s) that might need a resurrection/2nd look, please share!
