DAY 15 of 24



I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be “Jesus man.” Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with HIM.

~Galatians 2:19, MSG


Counterfeit spirituality [religion] does not work. Only the real thing {Jesus} will scratch our spiritual itch.

~Terry C. Muck

my thoughts red

Paul tried religion, it made him mean, hypocritical and antichrist, plus it left him empty, lonely and dreadfully unfulfilled. America does not need another denomination. We don’t need a new brand of religion. We have tons of religion. Everybody and their brother is religious. What America needs is Jesus. What the Baptist Church needs is Jesus. We don’t need more space, more buses, more equipment, more money, more publicity or more members like the ones we already have; what we need is more Jesus. Only Jesus can make us real: religion produces the morally elite social do-gooder who for the most part is a hypocrite.

From Bobby Stork

Shortly after the U.S. airstrikes began in Northern Iraq, a fleeing ISIS terrorist, desperate for water, was plodding through the desert when he saw something far in the distance. Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the oasis, only to find a little old Kurdish man at a small stand, selling ties. The ISIS terrorist asked, “Do you have water?” The Kurdish man replied, “I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5.” The terrorist shouted, “Idiot! I do not need an over-priced tie. I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water first!” “OK,” said the old Kurdish man. “It does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than that. If you continue over that hill to the west for about two miles, you will find a lovely restaurant. It has all the ice-cold water you need.” Cursing, the ISIS terrorist staggered away over the hill. Several hours later he staggered back, almost dead and said, “Your stupid Kurdish brother won’t let me in without a tie!”
