Be All That You Can Be by Joe Barnett

One thing you lack.  Mark 10:21

 

For over two decades (1980-2001) the jingle “be all that you can be” hit a psychological bulls-eye as a recruitment tool, appealing to young people to join the Army and become the best they could be. 

It brings to mind a young man who breathlessly asked Jesus, “What must I do to have eternal like?”

“Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor you father and mother.”

All of those directives, except the last, are negatives.  He had kept them all.  Then Jesus hit him with a triplet of positives:  sell what you have, give to the poor, follow me.

Christianity isn’t just a life of not doing things; it’s a life of doing things.  That’s the way to be all that you can be.

What you don’t do is important. 

So is what you do.

News from Mariana!

It was another amazing experience.  I was privileged to worship with the Coleraine church over six weeks in Ireland.  During this time I worked extensively with the women in my home.  There was an interesting occurrence; two women approached me about discussing their relationship with Jesus.  It’s my prayer they will continue to attend the Coleraine church. 

I was also able to become involved with their building program.  They are in the process of restoring the building constructed in the 50s. 

Your support, both financially and spiritually, has provided me with this opportunity.  I’m truly grateful.

                                         Love,  Mariana
