Hey again its me Kolten,
I'm sorry I never posted what happened next on "The Cat of Bubastes". I thought I'd let you read it and see what happens next. I did finish it and 2 other books, well I just got done with 1 of them. I read 1st "Leepike ridge" by Nathan R. Wilson and 2nd "Finding God in The Lord of the Rings" by Kurt Bruner. They were both really good I really think you should read them and if you did high five.
Can you guess what that says
Hello everyone in blogoshpere,
I have this picture on the side of my blog but I thought that it would be better to have it as a post because you can see it bigger if you click on it. I will, I hope, see all of you out there tonight at speech club. Oh by the way I drew this picture.
Hello everyone out there in the blogosphere.
Today's the day, the sun is shining, and it is, Thanksgiving. I hope you all have a good Thanksgiving day. Remember Thanksgiving comes but once a year. I hope we all may be thankful for all the food, family, and friends God has given us.
I’ll let you know what happens when I read the rest.
Saturday we had Grandpa Ken, Grandma Dot, and the Kruse’s over for our Sabbath meal. We had 22 people in are dinning room. I hope I can post a little video of it but for now any how you'll have to just hear (read) what it was like. At let the fun began I like to say that is on the Sabbath. It was really loud because of the so many different conversations going on. We had all kinds of ciders for our drinks. We had some corn from my garden, sweetish balls, scallop potatoes, and salad. The Kruse’s stayed till talking. They left and we all went to bed.
So bye now
Romans 12:1. I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
We need to become a worshipful people, before we can become a merciful people.
This verse in Romans 12:1 has 4 key words that I want to talk to you about today:
Body, Living, Holy, and Acceptable
The 1st key word used in Rom 12 is:
Body – “present your bodies as a living sacrifice”
God wants your whole body; your head, your arms, your legs, your lips, and your toes… he wants all of you.
· 1 Peter 2:5. You yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
· The Bible, in Isaiah 53, describes Jesus as having “no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him”
o God doesn’t judge us by what we look like (our cover), after all, even Jesus was a perfect book with an imperfect cover
o Man looks at the outward appearance but God looks at the heart.
The 2nd key word used in Rom 12 is:
Living – ““present your bodies as a living sacrifice”
· We need to be a living sacrifice, in other words, we need to live our lives for God almighty.
· Present your bodies as a living sacrifice.
o He’s not asking everyone to die for Him; He wants us to LIVE for Him
· In whatever we are able to do with our lives we must live for God and His glory.
The 3rd key word used in Rom 12 is:
Holy – “present your bodies… holy… to God”
Holy means “set apart”
Our lives need to be set apart for God’s glory and His purposes
· Heb. 13:15-16. “Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
· Some of the ways we can offer our bodies as a living sacrifice is to:
o Give praise to God
o Acknowledge God with our lips
o Do Good deeds
o And share what we have
· These are the things that set us apart for the service of God
The 4th and final key word used in Rom 12 is:
Acceptable – As in “holy and acceptable to God”
You may ask, “How could my imperfect body be an acceptable sacrifice?”
· He isn’t looking for perfect bodies
o Remember, even Jesus had a body that was described as not having beauty
o He’s just looking for bodies willing to serve.
o It is through the Christ that our service is made acceptable
Peter Said “My body is to show that I love Jesus Christ more than any comfort on earth.”
1 Cor. -20 – “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”
Today I did a little sermon for the elderly people in Alderwood. Creighton and Tessa Deems also did there Duo. So we had a lot of fun talking to the elderly people and seeing the Deems. I hope you all are having a lot of fun. I hope I can post some pictures of something real soon. Because I am only typing allot of long stuff. Leave a comment if you have time.
Hello my name is Kolten Victor Anderson I’ll tell you about my Past, Present, and Future.
First I’ll start with the Past. I’ve been very blessed to be raised in a Christian family. When I was born I weighed 8 pounds 8 oz. I was born in Washington North of Spokane on a ranch called AGK which stood for America’s Growing Kingdom or Anderson’s, Goldman’s, and Kruse’s. We moved here when I was 3. I’m Scottish, German, and Finnish.
Now to my Present. I’m 13 year’s old 5 feet 2 inch tall. I have an awesome Dad, a wonderful Mom, two older sister’s Kaila, and Karissa, Three younger sisters Ellie, Esther, and Katrina, and two younger brothers Levi, and Noah thus makes us a family of ten. I play the Hammered Dulcimer and started last December. Here are a few things I like alphabetically, Animals, blogging, bike ridding, camping, cooking, commenting on blog’s, card games, carving, eating, gardening, hiking, hunting, music, pencil drawing, ridding the quad, skating, and ships I like ships so much that my whole bedroom is full of them. I have 17 models of ships, etc.
On to the Future. I can only tell you what I hope for it, because it hasn't happen yet. I hope for 10 kids with a big house, lots of land, grass, trees, and rocks. I want to do a home based business called Mannatech which gives the best product and good money. I hope God will help me in raising God fearing kids because I can’t do it by my self. I want to be a preacher and turn lives around.
This is a thing I typed for Speech class. I didn't copy Destiny, because I already thought of doing it. We could only do 250 words or it would be allot longer.
I got back here yesterday at about 10:00 pm. When we were on are way home Aunt Jodi looked up some homeschooling stores and found an awesome one called Exodus near Portland they were closed on Sunday so we had to stay another night. Now we got the next morning and got there at 11:00 am then left at 5:00 pm with out eating lunch and only had for breakfast was some yogurts; but it was really cool because there was 100 shelves and over 6,000 books.
