Thoughts on the Meaning of Life… Todd Helmkamp


Posted by Vogeler on October 31, 2008

I just realized that my last two posts have been kind of “rantish” (is that a word?  If not, I claim it!  Huzzah, I made up a word!), so I thought that I would also write a post about what I love about Christians and Christianity.

  1. People who give up a privileged life in the US to take the Name and Word of Christ to a land where they could be killed for loving Jesus.
  2. Pastors who work 50 hours a week at demanding secular jobs, have weekly prayer meetings, attend worship practice, and then preach a Spirit-Inspired message on Sunday, all for no pay because the fledgling church can’t afford it.
  3. People who cancel a vacation or put off purchasing something they’ve wanted for years to help rebuild homes in disaster areas.
  4. Pastors who cheerfully visit hospitals at 3 am to comfort frightened people.
  5. People who stand for what they believe, no matter who is around.
  6. People who are strong enough to say, “I was wrong” and ask for forgiveness and healing.
  7. Pastors who work a demanding secular job, have a new baby, but still pour their lives into young people every week.
  8. Church staff members that work extra hours to get the job done.
  9. Pastors who aren’t afraid to speak the Truth, even when it’s not popular.
  10. People who work demanding secular jobs but then go and volunteer for several hours at their local church and don’t write a word about it on their blogs.
  11. Pastors who have enough courage to admit that they’re human and ask for help.
  12. People who love to teach very young children about Jesus to lay a firm foundation.
  13. People who are willing to forgive those who hurt them.
  14. People that put God first, and it shows.

What are some of your favorite things about Christians and Christianity?
