Sleep is for the Dead

It's twenty to three in the morning. I just finished my unit preparation to teach tomorow. I probably wont be awake as I teach but hey... gotta practice it now =]

Feeling very awake and alive bizarely. I generally do my best work at nite but this course generally saps any ability to remain conscious past eleven, for some reason Im still going. Listening to Marilyn Manson who just popped up on my itunes, randomness...

Todays theme (or really yesterdays theme now) was eternal life. What is it and How do you get it?? For a bunch of Chritians we had a hard time answering that. Having done the course several times before the answer has finally etched itself into the neural pathways of my mind (but im not giving it to you that easy, you'll have to do the course yourself and find out!!) Mal had entirely too much fun gently teasing and coaxing us through to the answer, I was under strict instructions to keep quiet and so I worked through the process despite knowing the answer and picked up some new stuff on the way which was awesome. Now feeling very alive.

There's a question for you: What is Eternal Life and How do You get it?? Leave a comment if you think you know the answer. (would be particularly interested in the answers of any traffic from YouthBlog)

Now I had best go slip into that unconsciousness we need to live. See you on the dark side!!

eternal coolness, wisdom, enlighten-ment, and basically being better at any sport we try than the poms, is called 'aussie'. therefore, following along those lines, eternal life must be being an aussie. how do you become an aussie? you dont. like that famous guy said, i think, there fore i am: we hit kangaroos in 4WD's and speak 'Oz', therefore we are aussie

Knowing God and Jesus Christ whom he sent.
Eternal life is entering into a relationship with God through faith in Jesus.
It's not about the afterlife.
Eternal life has already started.

You'll have noticed the MBTCSRC moniker on my comment, I'm starting to get things moving for the camp.
Do you want to play again by putting some clues and hints on The Posse House?

The Heir said...

bingo to the mind!! christs life is eternal and when we invite him to come and live in our hearts his life becomes our life. hence, if you dont have eternal life before you die, you wont have it after...
would love to do the clues for the camp, just make sure you include a link to my site this year!!
