Remember God Before You Are Old

As I have been praying through Ecclesiastes recently, chapter 12 is so poignant:

"Don't let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor Him in your youth before you grow old..."

"Remember Him before your hair turns white... and you drag along without energy like a dying grasshopper..."

"Remember Him before you are near the grave... where mourners will weep at your funeral..."

"Yes, remember your Creator now while you are young..."

-Selected passages from NLT, Ecclesiastes 12.

Pentecost Afterglow

As I sit and reflect this Sunday evening, yes, in the Afterglow of our Pentecost Celebration this morning, I am amazed at how God showed up and showed off. 

I taught on "Intimate Identity as Beloved Sons and Daughters of our Loving Father God!"

By the end of our English services, twelve were baptized in the baptistery and seemingly as many as 25 more (I lost count) were spontaneously baptized by pouring, while our wooden altars were lined with seekers to be sanctified wholly.  

As a result, our people experienced a Pentecost Day of pure joy that the devil could not put the brakes on.

The Twitter post I put up Saturday night could not have been more true:
