What is your name?

I hope everyone had a blessed weekend....don't they just go wayyyy tooo fast???!!! It seems Friday comes and then before we know it we blink and it's Monday already...

I wanted to share this video with you all....We are the body of Christ....If We claim to be Christians then we bear the name of JESUS....

If any of you watch the Biggest Loser, (we do and LOVE it!!!) you may remember Sean from last season. He left early on but it was his reason for leaving that most affected me. He and his partner Antoine, knew they couldn't stay in place of the largest woman who had ever come to the Biggest Loser Ranch. He sacrificed himself for Shae, because she needed to remain on the ranch and receive healing and the help to change her life and the choices she had made to get her there. You see, Sean is a youth pastor and he happens to be from Oklahoma. He came to church and shared his testimony a few weeks ago. We were learning about our influence on others. Sean shared with us that when he was asked by the shows producers "You are a Youth Pastor? Sean said "Yes, I am." They asked Sean "Are you sure that is what you want to be?" Confused Sean said "Yes, why are you offering me a job?" (I have to share here that Sean is quite the funny young man and was only kidding in this question but here is the point of their question) "We want you to understand that if you are claiming to be a Youth Pastor you are the face and example of all Christians and we will put ALL you do in front of millions of people~ Are you sure this is what you want to do?" Wow talk about influence! Sean told them "YES, I am certain this is what I want." Sean knew the God had led him there and prayed that he would bring glory and honor to the Lord for allowing this opportunity! I have to say as a fan of this show I was so struck by him and can say without a doubt he completely brought glory to the Lord and for believers as well.

Everyday we have an opportunity and although it may not be in front of millions of people we must know that an audience of one can be just as important!

I have posted a new review for a Phenomenal book titled Deep Harbor by Lisa Tawn Bergren! It's one I highly recommend! Go here to read my review
Have a blessed Monday everyone
