When I read God backwards, I might fool my- self to think such things as, “I am who I am! You can’t teach an old doG new tricks.” Only God can say, “I am who I am” (Exodus 3:14) and “I the Lord your God do not change” (Malachi 3:6). May I always be moldable and teachable, because situations change, but God’s word does not. When I think that my life is un- changing, then I am reading God backwards. When I look around at the cares of this world and forget my Faith and turn to other crumbling foundations, I read God backwards. “Like a doG that returns to his vomit is a fool who repeats his folly” (Proverbs 26:11). When you see opportunities to reach others and you say, “I don’t know enough, let the “professional” Christian handle it! I don’t have a doG in this fight.” You are reading God backwards. We have ALL been given the great commission (Matthew 28:18-20). When I look at my situation as hopeless, and my purpose to love God with my all is forgotten, then based on Ecclesiastes 9:4-5, I have read God back- wards. “But he who is joined with all the living has hope, for a living doG is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward, for the memory of them is forgot- ten.” I treat God like a doG when I read God backwards.

We may need to distance ourselves, but that doesn’t mean we can’t help each other. During difficult times, we often see the most beautiful acts of kindness. There's an old Mr. Roger's quote, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping". In the past couple weeks, if we look, we can find stories of courage, compassion, and kindness. –unknown author Watch the Services Facebook –Deerfoot Disciples You Tube: Deerfoot Church of Christ @10:30 am on Sunday Morning @5 pm on Sunday Afternoon @6:30 pm on Wednesday Night By: Tim Shoemaker Are You Qualified? In sporting events it is interesting to watch the competition that individuals or teams must be involved in just to qualify for the real opportunities to compete for the grand prize. In the Olympics for interest nations have their athletes compete to see who will make the team to then “go for the gold.” Then in the Olympic Games them- selves one must compete for a chance of making the finals where the medals are to be won. In writing to the church at Colossae the apostle Paul said, “Giving thanks to the Father who has quali- fied us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light” (Col. 1:12). Paul was speaking of be qualified to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints. It was the father who qualified them as well as all who are Christians. Those people at Colossae were not ini- tially qualified because of sin. In Isaiah 59:1, 2 we learn that sin disqualifies us, for Isaiah declared, “Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. 2 But your iniquities have sepa- rated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.” Our sins separate us from God so that we cannot receive the kingdom of God, we cannot attain the crown of life. The apostle John was told, “But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomina- tion or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life” ( Re. 21:27). For mankind to be qualified it first of took the death of Jesus. Just two verses later Paul told the Colossian brethren of Jesus, “in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins” (Col. 2:14). Man could not and cannot save himself. But by His death on the cross Jesus paid the price by which we could be redeemed from our sin and be restored to God and be made a part of His kingdom. Secondly it requires our obedience to God. Our obedience does not in any way earn or merit our salva- tion but while Jesus died for every man that does not guaranteed the salvation of every man. In fact Jesus taught that the majority of men would be lost (Mt. 7:13, 14). It is those who are obedient in believing in Jesus, repenting of their sins, confessing Jesus before men and be buried with Him in baptism that will be saved. Thirdly, it requires our continued faithfulness. “Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus (Col. 1:24). By our contin- ual spiritual growth (2 Peter 1:9, 10) we can reach that maturity that we may be presented perfect in Christ.
