Spread the news!

It is interesting to notice that there are things we want to run down the streets telling everyone, right?  Some things happen to us that seem to trigger the desire for the whole world to know/notice/see that there’s a change in progress. Two things led me to think about this on the past few days.

The first can be summarized on the picture bellow.

The second was Battlestar Galactica. For those who never heard of, it is a very interesting spacial sci-fi series. A segunda delas foi Battlestar Galactica. Unlike Start Trek (that Esdras and I also like very much) there’s no tech stuff like lasers, individual com badges, universal translator. It looks like it’s real people in real life situations, but they’re in space and fighting for the survival of human race. But it wasn’t space that made me think about “spreading the news”, it was a very polemic character called Gaius Baltar.

He starts the series as a scientist who participates passively in the nuclear attack that the Cylons made agains the humans (at that time he didn’t know their destructive plan). After that he remais on board Galactica as a researcher, but he doesn’t take sides in the war (he keeps information about the Cylons from the military). Nobody know about his visions he has of the blonde Cylon or of his participation on the attack. Some time later, the blond vision convinces him that he plays a key role in God’s plan to save humans and Cylons. After he begins to truly believe thi, he still makes some decisions based on his own ego and in his self-preservation instinct. Then he starts to find followers for the “one and true God” and becomes kind of a religious leader.

But what was really fascinating about him is the courage he has to speak for anyone to hear, regardless of the situation or the “VIP level” of the person. And that’s why he becomes a leader, because he speaks with such a passion that shows that, even though he made mistakes, he screwed up and keeps doing wrong, he found forgiveness and God loves him the way he is because He was the one who made him!

Then I thought… am I speaking with the same passion about the One and True God? And you can say that for him it’s easier, because he’s a character, he’s not real. BUT MY GOD IS REAL, and if I let my passion die He’ll have this against me “Nevertheless, I have somewhat against you, because thou hast left your first love.Revelation 2:4

I want everyone to know that we have another baby on the way, and with the same intensity I should desire that they all would know the Love that saved me, the only way to God, my best Friend, my Lord: Jesus!

That’s it. One more baby coming to our family to bring us joy, but what is really keeping my mind and heart busy is: what am I doing with the gifts and the purpose that God gave me?

“And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.Mark 1:15

Have a blessed weekend, and my prayer is that the passion you have for Jesus will always be fired.
