How Do You Spell That?


About a week ago Alicia and I put some of our belongings into a storage unit. While I was in the office of the storage unit the lady who worked there was asking me some questions so she could put some information into the computer. She asked the typical questions that one would ask for this type of thing. One of the questions she asked me was "who is your employer"? So I told her the Bear Valley church of Christ. As she was typing the information into the computer she looked up and asked "is it C-h-r-i-s-t?" At first I was not sure if she was joking but after about a second or two I realized she was seriously asking me how to spell the name of Christ. So I told her and we finished filling out the paper work. Honestly, I have never been considered a fantastic speller nor have I ever won any spelling bees. If you look hard enough there is a good possibility that I have misspelled a word or two in this very article.  But to not know how to spell the name of Christ is baffling to me. Sadly, we live in a society that is far too similar to other societies throughout history.  It is hard to imagine a people who have been more blessed by physical prosperity than we in the United States. Sadly, this far too often results in people forgetting the Lord.  This took place time and time again in the Old Testament. The children of Israel (the very people that God chose too establish a great nation) had protection by God and great prosperity; yet, they turned their backs on God time and time again.  Hosea wrote "When they had pasture, they were filled; they were filled and their heart was exalted; Therefore they forgot Me. So I will be to them like a lion; like a leopard by the road I will lurk; I will meet them like a bear deprived of her cubs; I will tear open their rib cage, and there I will devour them like a lion. The wild beast shall tear them" (Hosea 13:6-8). When the children of Israel turned their backs on God their great prosperity and protection departed from them. Over and over again scripture talks about them forgetting the Lord and the great works that He had done for them.  Sadly, I am afraid we are living in a time where so many have forgot the Lord and the great things He has done for us.  Let us never be one of them.  Let us never forget the Lord.
