Hard to believe where some phrases come from. . .

For same reason, I've been really enjoying reading the Prophets lately. This wasn't always the case. For the longest time, I avoided these books that conclude the Old Testament. I only referred to them in joking form (See Ezekiel 23:20) or in short form (see Jonah or Hosea). I would never touch the big, long nasty books. Ever since I went to Catalyst back in the first part of October (which I would recommend to everyone), I have been going through Jeremiah. Today, I read the following verse, "Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil." (Jeremiah 13:23)

This provides makes me think about where I would be without Christ. I like evil (evil=living for myself) and I do it and without Christ living through me, I would be a wreck.

By the way, I have always wondered this but I'm curious do these two look alike:

Luke Shortridge - College Ministry Pastor, Cedar Creek Church in Perrysburg, OH. He was a critical part in the beginning of my faith journey.

Kyle Idleman - Preaching Associate from Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY. I've never met him but I do like the way he preaches.

I think so but I could be wrong.
