    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    If you're interested in learning more about God, you can leave a message here, you could go to this site and leave a message or you can read on.



    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    Less is More by Relient K

    First, let me say that if you have never listened to Relient K, I feel absolutely terrible for you. try going to Relient K's web site and listening to their music vids or something ( http://relientk.com/ )

    That being said, Relient K is my favorite band, and one of their songs is on my top ten list. It is entitled, "Less is More" I would like to share the lyrics with you

    Jesus, I pray
    Take all my mistakes
    Throw them away
    Destroy them for my sake
    Jesus, I call out 'cause I'm sorry
    Because I fall so short of your glory
    To the best of my ability
    I'm practicing humility
    And I lay myself before
    'Cause less is more
    All that I have
    I lay before
    With my pride on the floor
    Cause to you less is more
    All that I have
    I lay before
    With my pride on the floor
    Cause to you less is more
    I pour out myself
    All that I am
    You love me so much
    That you fill me again
    And may these words on my heart, on my lips
    Somehow mean so much more than this
    Jesus, I pray
    Know what I'm trying to say
    All that I have
    I lay before
    With my pride on the floor
    'Cause to you less is more
    All that I have
    I lay before
    With my pride on the floor
    Cause to you less is more
    I pour out myself, before you oh Lord
    I hold nothing back, 'cause to you less is more
    And may these words on my heart on my lips,
    Somehow mean so much more than this
    Jesus, I pray
    Just know what I'm tryin' to say
    Jesus, I plead
    Please purify me
    Make my heart clean
    Drench me with your mercy
    Jesus, I pray
    I love you, I need you
    For the rest of my days
    I swear I will seek you
    To the best of my ability
    I'm practicing humility
    And I lay myself before
    'Cause less is more.

    Relient K is by far the most talented band in the music industry. They are not your ordinary punk rock/pop band, or ordinary band for that reason. Their guitar rifts range from easy to hard and are all not the same (or same rhythm). Often (especially on their new album) they can add a piano and make it sound really cool! They can go from your “ordinary punk voice”, to harmonizing like it ain’t no thang , or even emo screaming their head off. Oh wait…did I mention they freakn love Jesus!? Man if you find a more talented band out there, let me know.

    So, apparently, Relient K was an old station wagon. I love station wagons! Yeah!

    No no no! Does anyone know what Relient K, the name of the band, means! Why that name?

    The Bernhofts DO have a sense of culture, you big oaf (this is addressed to Cow, of course :) ), and so do I! But, occasionally, I step down from the pedastal of culturedness and listen to Relient K. It's definitely not as satisfying as, say, Itzhak Pearlman playing... ANYTHING, but I can deal. I usually make allowances for comedy. ;)

    Guerrilla Rodeo? Never heard of it.... But both Supertones and Five Iron Frenzy are on my top ten artist list. Ace Troubleshooter? Never heard of them either.... But I did get this really cool program recently where I can download any song I want legally ( as opposed to it being illegal with Kazaa, and yes, that is illegal ) so I'll have to look 'em up. ( I thought Five Iron Frenzy was finished, though. They made their last album, 'The End is Near' )

    And that's a really good point you bring up Cow!

    First of all, I must agree that RK is in fact, very probably the coolest band in existance today, but only until Guerrilla Rodeo starts up. Combo of people from Five Iron Frenzy, Supertones, and Ace Troubleshooter. Don't get much better than that, I tell ya.

    But man! What a powerful song! Just think, we ask for all of these things, constantly: forgiveness, acceptance, love. Deep down, that's what people really want, and what they really long for. The AWESOME thing is not that we want to be loved. The great part is that we aren't ABLE to want to be loved, in the amount that God wants to love us. To fully except God's love, one HAS to share it with others.

    Crazy, eh?
