The following was a children’s story I shared at our church recently:
Charlie. Everyone who comes to Closure for Jesus farm loves Charlie. Let me tell you a little about Charlie. He’s a Border Collie dog, and he’s about two years old now. If we tell Charlie, “NO”, we only have to tell him once. If we tell him, “Come!”, he comes right away. If we tell him, “Go get it!”, he’s off before we finish speaking. If we tell him “Bring it, Drop it”, whatever it is, is right on the ground in front of us. If we throw a stick in the creek or the pond, he has it back at our feet in seconds, waiting for the next throw. If we throw a frisbee, Charlie will sail through the air to catch it. Charlie loves to please.
Then there’s Emma. Not everyone who comes to Closure for Jesus farm loves Emma. Let me tell you a little about Emma. She’s also a Border Collie dog, and she is one week older than Charlie. She’s as sweet and loving a dog as you will ever find, and is very attached to us. But if we tell Emma, “NO”, we may have to tell her 20 times before she stops. If we tell her “Fetch”, she runs to the stick and stands over it and stares at us. The dogs are not supposed to get in the garden, but I have to tell Emma every day, “Emma, get out of the garden!!” If my cat, Lily, walks by Emma tears out after her.
You know what Charlie does when Emma chases my cat? He runs after Emma and stops her. Charlie knows they are not supposed to chase my cat, and he is trying to remind Emma to leave her alone. Charlie often tries to help Emma obey, but Emma seems set on doing what she wants to. Remember, though, she is very sweet and loving; she just won’t obey. She wants to have her own way, and it sometimes frustrates not only me, but children who come here to visit our farm and play with the dogs.
Now, when I ask people why they love Charlie so much, do you know what is the first thing most people say? They say, “Because he is so obedient!!” WOW! Now that’s very interesting. Charlie is fun to play with. He’s a sweet dog. He’s super smart. He’s a beautiful dog (so is Emma). But the thing most people really like about Charlie is the fact that he is quick to obey.
What a lesson! Do you think Jesus can make us quick to obey like Charlie, the Border Collie dog? I think He can. Do you think it would make our friends and family like to be around us better?
John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
During our Total Preparation Campmeeting this month, Jim Buller shared some thoughts has has based on deep study of Daniel 11. He agreed to allow us to post, and I believe this will be a blessing to many!
Our friend, Patrick Holland, a member of the local Charity church, agreed, at our request, to bless us with special music at our opening meeting for the Total Preparation Campmeeting we just had. What a tremendous blessing! See for yourself:
Do you know what to expect, based on Bible Prophecy, in the future? If you don’t know what to look for, chances are good you won’t be prepared. Indeed, you may not even realize the need for preparation. Listen as Jay explains what is ahead based on “it is written”.
This was a momentous day. None of the locals say they’ve ever seen anything like this. But God spared us. The only spots that didn’t flood were our home and most of the ministry building grounds. Others on our road are having to be rescued….people who’ve lived here for many years. The enemy is angry for the work we want to do for the Lord here. Continue to pray for us.
This is the fourth of five presentations done by Jay Krueger in Bismarck, ND this past January 2017. In this presentation Jay discusses the reality of religious persecution and the fact that it will be repeated in the near future; indeed, it is happening today all over the world. One thing I really appreciated about Br. Jay’s presentation here is the encouragement he gives to rejoice in persecution; it is a privilege to be counted worthy to suffer for Jesus. I pray we will each choose to carefully consider what lies ahead so we can prosper in persecution as Jesus did.
