Discuss: Are you jumpin for Jesus popcorn or are you "chex" mix?
Yesterday, my friend Jen sent me a crazy piece of video. It was titled Popcorn. It showed some folks sitting around a table. They had 5 or 6 kernels of unpopped popcorn sitting in the middle of the table and they had placed their cell phones near the popcorn facing the center of the table as well. They each dialed their phone and the phones started ringing. Only a few seconds later, the popcorn started exploding and popping all over the place. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJlv9HHJyAo Here is the link if you have not yet seen the video.
It was amazing. All I could think was..."my kid is never getting a cell phone." Whatever was making the corn pop would also make their brains to weird stuff.
Well....for some reason I thought of the video during church today. I remembered the kernels bursting and jumping like crazy. I questioned myself with, "Am I bursting and jumping for Jesus?" What does it take for me to burst and jump for Him? Must someone else apply pressure for me to jump? Must God turn up the "heat" for me to jump? Do I jump at appropiate and convenient times only? Hmmmmm? Let's see....
I go to church...check
I read my bible...check
I volunteer at church...check
I try to guide my children in God's ways...check
bible studies galore...check
It occured to me that I sound more like "chex" mix than jumping for Jesus popcorn. I don't know that I "burst" and "jump" in any of the activities mentioned above. What is this saying about me? Hmmmm...
Are you "chex" mix too? Or...are you jumping for Jesus popcorn?
Have a great Sunday evening. Laura
