Friday Roundup #20

Happy Friday! With the heavenly feeling of the weekend upon us, it’s my job to bring us all back to earth and roundup the best posts of this past week. Oh, and this is the 20th Friday Roundup ever. Ok, ok, stop the party. Let’s goooooo!

3. Temptation (by Collin)

As I began this roundup, I quickly realized that there were only two posts not authored by me, one short of the minimum of 3. Problem? I don’t think so. “Temptation” was written by me and it has a great message. Don’t give into temptation, be sure to set yourself as far away from it as possible so it doesn’t trip you up.

2. A Real Legacy (by Christopher)

If you have not heard already, our dear friend Mr. Myers passed on last week. He was incredible man of God, unlike anything that I had ever experienced. When I heard the news, it was like a punch in the face. But Christopher asks a great question, “When we die, the thing that we will leave behind is our legacy. Will your legacy be centered around earthly possessions, or will it be centered around living for Christ?” Mr. Myers’ legacy was definitely the latter. It was only a punch in the gut because he was basically my role model in the Christian faith. But he’s in heaven now, with Jesus, and I cannot think of anything that he would have liked better.

1. The Perfect Sacrifice (by Callie)

Ok, so when I saw who wrote this post, I got kinda of nervous: I thought I had spelled my name wrong. But when I read it, I realized that I had never touched the topic of John 3:16 before on here for a simple reason: it’s too popular. You see, when verses like that get repeated over and over again, they lose their meaning. God loves us so much, it would be literally impossible to try to communicate it over paper. God wants to have an intimate, personal relationship with us. Do not, do not, take that for granted!

Qoute OThe Week: “When we accept Jesus into our heart, His spirit lives in us. So when God sees us, He doesn’t see our sins, but sees the perfect spirit of Jesus Christ.” – The Perfect Sacrifice (Callie)

Happening IReal Life: More than 60% of the United States felt subzero temperatures this past week. It’s times like these that make me really wish like I were in New Zealand…

By the way, we feel you should know that Wyatt’s schedule got too busy to post, so Callie, our friend from church, will start posting every once in awhile.

Have a great weekend! In Christ,

~ Collin

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Howdy! I’m Collin, 16 years old, and a homeschooled junior. I play the piano, ukulele, and many sports. I’m far from perfect, and that’s why I love to share (through this blog) what God is showing me in His word. Although I have many favorite Bible verses, if I had to choose one it would be Romans 12:12, Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” I believe that prayer is the most powerful tool we are given as Christians and it should not be taken for granted. Toodles!
