Great Quote and story from the Movie, When in Rome. "You're so Pretty I don't know if to look at you or Myself." or He takes off his shirt in the restraunt and says, "You're Welcome." Later flexing his arm "Dessert is Served." We laugh at his arrogance and over zealousness to impress the star of the movie, and at everyone else who is under the spell of her. We will do extreme things for something we are Passionate about, wither it be a Car, a Girl, a Guy, or sport, ect...
We see Sport Fans dressing up in their outfits, painted faces, and colored wigs to show their devotion and team spirit. Buy Season Tickets, Spend Gas Money going. Parking passes, and even Snacks at the game. $$$$
What about that special someone or someones? We take our showers and put on our make up, (thanks for the shower part and I need the nails done) and get all prettied up to meet that special someone.. But what happens when it comes to God, Church, and Jesus Christ? What do we do? What if we showed up at Church waiving our favorite Scripture, or painting our faces? What if we bought Shirts that support our Church or Youth Group? We bring our Noise makers and horns??? Shoot, if you go to church more than once a Week you're labeled a fanatic. If you read your bible you're a REBEL. If you even confess your beliefs you are Judgemental.
So, what is God wanting us to do in this time? This Place? What does it mean to be a Christian? "You shall love the LORD thy GOD with all your Heart, Mind and Strength." Mark 12:30
Romans 12:1 says, "Present your bodies a LIVING Sacrifice, holy and Acceptable to God."
God wants us to be Passionate about Him. God want us to present our Bodies, our Minds and Our Strength. He wants us to take Risks with Him. Christ has put His spell on you, an called you to come after him. He delights when we Stand up for him, even if its infront of everyone.
When you follow Christ you are standing out saying, "Dessert is Served."
