|You guys, I just want to take a few minutes and get serious, then maybe I will share a joke. Lets wait and see how I am feeling. First of all, I wanted to share how amaizing God it. You know that I have been struggling with this sermon for sometime. In a matter of minutes, God spoke to my heart, and I have what I think is a word from the Lord for these people. Please pray with me for this time I will be preaching tomorrow. After all, who am I that God should choose to use me? I am the worst of all sinners, after all, I know better, and still choose daily to sin in one capicity or another. Why does God choose to use us? I heard someone once say: “without God, we cannot, and without us, God will not…” I guess that is why he uses us.Anyhow, I went to see the FX show tonight!!! If you did not go, you missed out so much. It was so FUNNY I thought I was going to die. At the same time, it was a powerful way to minister the gospel. You have to see it to believe it. After all, how does one explain Bible stories by beating on drums? FX did it. Please support your classmates, friends, school and missions by supporting FX. They still need some money for thier trip. They said $7,500 but I am sure that was not counting ticket sales, merchandise sales, and the offering they took. They also need prayer support. I challenge you all to join with me in praying for their ministry trip to Venesaula.
Well, if you have read all of this, then you may go on and read this joke. If you skipped ahead to find out if I left a joke or not, shame on you. Go back to the top and read everything else first.
“Before I came to college I wish I had known…”
That it didn't matter how late I scheduled my first class, I'd sleep right through it. That I could change so much and barely realize it. That you can love a lot of people in a lot of different ways. That college kids throw airplanes too. That if you wear polyester everyone will ask you why you're so dressed up. That every clock on campus shows a different time. That if you were smart in high school--so what? That I would go to a party the night before a final. That chem labs require more time than all my classes put together. That you can know everything and fail a test. That you can know nothing and ace a test. That I could get used to almost anything I found out about my roommate. That home is a great place to visit. That most of my education would be obtained outside of my classes. That I would be one of those people my parents warned me about. That free food served until 10:00 is gone by 9:50. That Sunday is a figment of the world's imagination. That Psychology is really Biology, That Biology is really Chemistry,That Chemistry is really Physics, and Physics is really Math. That my parents would become so much smarter in the last few years. That it's possible to be alone even when you are surrounded by friends That friends are what makes this place worthwhile!! Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before we can meet again, and meeting again, after moments or a lifetime is certain for those who are friends.
