Become What You’re Not, Zeal, And A New Blogging Feature

I know it’s possible to set up my RSS Feeder so that anyone who reads my blog can see exactly what blogs I’m reading on a daily basis.  This feature bothers me just a bit because I frequently don’t agree with the content of all the blogs that I read.  Sometimes it’s good to read people who totally disagree with you to get a better perspective.  This has caused me to dream up a new feature on this blog, one I like to call “Blogs I Wish I Wrote.”  In “Blogs I Wish I Wrote” I will feature either a snippet of a profound or humourous blog or a link to one, which, while reading, I say to myself “Man, I wish I was the guy who wrote that.”

Today’s “Blog I Wish I Wrote” comes all the way from South Africa, where Jono, a man I had the priviledge of living with for a year, shares in two short paragraphs the mystery of how God can command us to be what we are not.  I would quote it here, but the whole post is so profound and short, that to post only part would not due it justice but to post all of it would be stealing.  Instead, I point you to “One Necessary Thing and Some Other Stuff” by Jonathan and encourage you to read and ponder that which the Lord is sharing with him.
