Happy Birthday, Jesus

January 7th, 2010

Happy Birthday, Jesus! We are happy because today is your special day, you were born today, just for us..
We thank you that you came from heaven to earth just for us.
Thank you for all you did for us when you were here with us.
You taught us how to love each other, help us to remember to be more loving.
You taught us how to do the right thing, remind us that you are with us, even when we think no one is looking.
We thank you that you didn’t just stay a baby in a cradle but you grew up to be our savior and died on the cross for our sins.
We thank you that you didn’t stay dead but you came alive and went to heaven, opening a way so we can go there too, someday.
Thank you for this food and for all our family and friends.
Thank you for everyone who helped make this a great day.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Happy Birthday, Jesus

Lyrics:

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
You are my all in all


Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising up again I bless Your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down You pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all


Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name


You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
You are my all in all


Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising up again I bless Your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down You pick me up
When I get dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all


Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name


Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

NOOMA You | 015 Rob Bell

January 3rd, 2010

Some of the central claims of the Christian faith are the source of many discussions and heated debates. But are we always debating the right things? Maybe some of our discussions would change significantly if we had more insight into the actual circumstances that surrounded the first people of the Christian movement–if we had a better understanding of the things they did in the context of the world they lived in. Maybe some of the claims of the Christian faith that we typically perceive to be unique aren’t really that special at all. And at the same time, maybe we don’t always put enough emphasis on the things that truly should matter in our lives.

A Letter To You From SATAN

January 2nd, 2010

I saw you yesterday as you began your daily chores.
You awoke without kneeling to pray. As a matter of fact,
you didn’t even bless your meals, or pray before going
to bed last night. You are so unthankful. I like that about you.

I cannot tell you how glad I am that you have not changed
your way of living. Fool! You are mine. Remember, you and I
have been going steady for years, and I still don’t love you yet.
As a matter of fact, I hate you, because I hate God. I am only
using you to get even with God. He kicked me out of heaven,
and I’m going to use you as long as possible to pay him back.

You see, Fool, GOD LOVES YOU and HE has great plans
in store for you. But you have yielded your life to me and I’m
going to make your life a living hell. That way we’ll be together twice.
This will really hurt God. Thanks to you. I’m really showing Him who’s
boss in your life. With all of the good times we’ve had…..
We have been watching dirty movies, cursing people out,
partying, stealing, lying, hypocriting, fornicating, overeating,
telling dirty jokes, gossiping, backstabbing people,
supporting abortion,gay rights,
disrespecting adults and those in leadership position,
NO respect for the church, bad attitudes:
SURELY you don’t want to give all this up.

Come on, Fool, let’s burn together forever. I’ve got some
hot plans for us. This is just a letter of appreciation from me
to you. I’d like to say “THANKS” for letting me use you for
most of your foolish life. You are so gullible. I laugh at you.
When you are tempted to sin, you give in. HA HA HA LOL
You make me sick.

Sin is beginning to take its toll on your life.
You look 20 years older. I need new blood. So go ahead
and teach some children how to sin. All you have to do is smoke,
drink alcoholic beverages, cheat, gamble, gossip, fornicate,
and listen to and dance to the top 10 jams. Do all of this in the
presence of children and they will do it too. Kids are like that.

Well, Fool, I have to let you go for now. I’ll be back in a couple of
seconds to tempt you again. If you were smart, you would run somewhere,
confess your sins, live for God with what little bit of life that you have
left. It’s not my nature to warn anyone, but to be your age and still
sinning, it’s becoming a bit ridiculous. Don’t get me wrong, I still hate you……
IT’S JUST THAT YOU’D MAKE A BETTER FOOL FOR CHRIST.

P.S. – And if you really love me, you won’t share this letter with anyone.

NOOMA Breathe | 014 Rob Bell

January 2nd, 2010

With everything that we’ve got going on every day, how many of us ever think about our breathing, about the meaning of breathing? Yet, for thousands of years, people have understood that our physical breath is a picture of a deeper spiritual reality. In the Bible, the word for “breath” is the same as the word for “spirit.” There’s an inherent dilemma at the core of what makes us human. We’ve all been created in the image of God and possess immense power and strength. And at the same time, our lives are incredibly vulnerable and fragile. Maybe if we had more insight into the meaning of breathing, we would better understand how God created us as human beings.

A New Year’s Prayer

January 1st, 2010

May God make your year a happy one!

Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain, But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy, But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you, But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine, But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant, But by showing you when people and their causes need you most, and by making you anxious to be there to help.

God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.

As I look out my window and watch the sunrise over the cornfield; I thank God for richly blessing me with so many gifts…

I pray that for each day in 2010 I don’t take one of His gifts for granted. For I am so richly blessed.
