Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2023-267: Time to Get Serious

As I was reading this morning I came across a Bible verse that seemed to talk about guardian angels.       

(Psa 34:7 KJV)  The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
I was caught up in the idea that one angel can camp all around me.  It defies the laws of physics but so do angels.  

Then it hit me:  We need to pray Psalm 34:7 for Mike Johnson.  The man who has been elected to be Speaker of the House is a man of faith.  Someone I know who is himself of impeccable character knows him well and says that Mike Johnson is the real deal.  He is what he seems to be.  My friend was not making any predictions about whether he would be successful but if there was a problem it would not be one of character.

Which places the burden on us.  You have already seen the God-haters as they have begun their attacks.  They will not let up.  The man is not only a believer in traditional America but a believer in Jesus Christ.  The lies and distortions will not only continue, they will get worse.  I think he was elected in response to the prayers of God’s people.  Now is not the time to relax and let him serve.  Now is the time to double down on our prayers for him and the rest of the people in government.

If you are a person of faith make Mike Johnson a target in your prayer life.  Pray that he would be strong and wise.  Pray for his family and friends.  Pray like it makes a difference.  Your country and the welfare of the world could depend on it.

Not that I want to put any pressure on you or anything like that.
