“Unexpected Immunity? Or Delayed Effect?”

Maybe our alarm at the last installment of “The Lloyd Servant Show” were premature? Does Laura have some unexpected immunity to the Hypnotic Glasses? Or is there some unusual delayed effect? Some type of slow brainwashing happening?!? Her reaction does seem to be unexpected!

Posts this week may be fewer than in past weeks. I am relying on cellular data to post, and keeping a good signal has been a challenge since last week. This is also preventing me from reading reading and commenting on what you have to share as well. There may be tower issues here? Or my technology may be just a little out-of-date? Anyway, just wanted you readers to know posting and reading are both challenges right now. Thanks.

“And When The Pudding Cups Run Out?”

There are three possible solutions to all of the world’s problems presented in this comic strip. Two of them depend on pudding cups. One does not. I guess that makes it fairly obvious which one I prefer! But what is the cost of that solution?

Any real change for the better will come through and because of a Real Life Messiah who people love more than they love themselves. I guess that’s rather direct, or more direct than usual. But what do you do when the pudding cups run out?

I believe that may be the thought behind messages from the Old Testament prophets like this about the Real Life Messiah:

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. Isaiah 11:6 (KJV)

I think about what if I had been one of the twelve disciples. Being in the presence of the Real Life Messiah, would I have loved Him more than I loved myself? I don’t think so. I would have fled for my own life when He was arrested. 

But that is only a hypothetical “What if…?” question that I’ve asked myself. Every day is really centered on one real life question: “Will I show that I love Real Life Jesus more than I love myself?”

It helps me to remember this small portion of scripture, just eight words.

…who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 (KJV)

How can I not do the same for Him? Yet I know it will require His strength in me.

“Everything I Ever Wanted”

In some ways this sketch might be the opposite to the last one in this series titled “Someone Like Me” because the man there had nothing that this man has. Then I began to consider how very fleeting the answer “I’m not seeking anything” can be.

That may be easy to say when you have a newborn with ten fingers and ten toes and all seems wonderful, but what about when there is a cough that won’t go away? Or the baby doesn’t respond to light or sound? Or doesn’t develop as expected?

Then there is a desperate seeking for answers and cures. Illness, disease, and disaster can come so quickly and threaten to take away what we treasure the most. Then we will be seeking again, perhaps more desperately than ever before.

At times, life can feel so fragile and precarious, particularly when seeking Jesus is not part of it. Without Him, there is no steady anchor. All of our earthly desires and fulfillments can be swept away, leaving us battered by the waves. Can we be our own anchor? (I don’t think so. Can an anchor be its own anchor? Still, I know how very difficult it can be to trust anyone else, even Jesus.)

Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast… Hebrews 6:19 (KJV)

What is perhaps jarring for me to consider is that perhaps both the man in “Someone Like Me” and the man in “Everything I Ever Wanted” may be spiritual equals in the eyes of God. One shrouded in darkness, the other bathed in light. One having nothing of what he wants, the other having all that he wants. Yet this is only what our physical eyes see. We lack God’s spiritual eyes into the heart.

Prosperity of things, even good and wholesome things like a family, may not be a sign that someone is diligently seeking a relationship with God. In fact, that may be a greater spiritual danger than not having prosperity at all. Perhaps that is all the more reason to hold fast.

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) Hebrews 10:23 (KJV)

Without a doubt, seeking Jesus is a good thing, but once having found Him, are we letting Him be our anchor? Are we holding fast?

“Now It’s Time For ‘Watch Out!’ Without A Doubt!!!”

There are the Hypnotic Glasses again! The same glasses that seemed to have rocketed “The Lloyd Servant Show” to overnight success with hundreds and then thousands of people sending in their cash!

“I believe all the right things. All of them.” What’s up with that? If those words don’t send up a red flag of warning, what would?!? Does it make you a little skeptical when you come across someone who appears to know everything about God? (And even more importantly perhaps, when we get to where we might be thinking that ourselves?)

Does Laura have a chance? Will she become subject to His every whim and command? If there ever was a time to say this, it’s now! “Watch our, Laura! Watch out!” Much more to follow for sure!
