The Russell Brand “Type” Discovery

30 Sep

Jesus typeI just accidentally discovered that by pressing Control-N on my keyboard, I instantly get a fresh, new document page. There have probably been thousands of occasions over the years when I’ve been frustrated that it required so many steps to accomplish that task. I don’t know if this was part of my latest Microsoft update or if it was always there, but I can only imagine how much time I’m going to save from here on out.

This time-saving discovery is nothing to compare with what a notoriously vulgar actor recently said he figured out. Russell Brand, who can be extremely offensive to a Jesus lover like myself, recently announced, after being in rehab, that he believes, “We have been tricked into not believing in God.” He then expounds quite eloquently about the futility of life without religious belief. When I had a similar epiphany, it turned my world upside down in the best possible way. I mean, way better than an instant new document!

Have you encountered God yet? Because God doesn’t want anyone to die without knowing Jesus, I’m completely convinced that everyone gets a nudge from God at some point in their lives. There may be a question, like, “God, is that you?” When it is God, it’s potentially an eternal mistake to turn a deaf ear or push the “pull toward God” away. Because what’s really happening is that Someone wonderful you don’t know personally yet is trying to change your life for the better. You have to say yes to God to experience the awesomeness of being part of His family. He, not the world system, is why we were created. That’s why life is crazy-empty without Him, which Russell Brand apparently now agrees with me about.

Back to my new keyboard function — I discovered it when I kept hitting the wrong key to make a capital “N”—over and over. Suddenly I snapped! Hey, what did I just do there? A mistake led me to the light! It’s often a mistake or tragic loss that leads people to God, by the way. A fitting analogy, though probably not really. In any case, don’t ignore the unusual voice popping into your head, when God’s trying to show you a New Way. You’ll be so glad you paid attention!! I guarantee it.
