Eternity is rushing towards us.
You and everyone else must be ready.

Happy Birthday, Mark!

Happy-Bday-Balloonsb

And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants:
and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.
Genesis 40:20

Since Pharaoh can celebrate his birthday, I made the decision that I can celebrate mine! So today is my birthday. I was going to invite all of my “servants” over, but then I realized I don’t have any! (We will be taking applications for those positions sometime soon!)

So please, do not buy me a house, a new car, a Rolex, a pair of diamond-studded reading glasses, gold faucets (Actually, only one person in America will get that joke!), or give me a title deed to some beachfront property in Kansas. Instead, let’s have some real fun on my birthday.

I always do two things on my birthday: bless others and witness. I call it playing “reverse birthday.” First, I make it a point to intentionally find people to bless, kind of like a “thank you” to the Lord for life. Second, I make sure I am witnessing to the lost on my birthday. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the day than to share my faith and bless others. Sometimes, I hit the trifecta and get to preach on my birthday, but this year it falls on a Monday.

So if you want to celebrate my birthday with me, please witness to one person today. Open up your mouth, and tell that person what Jesus has done for them. Give out a few tracts as well. And, if you plan on forgetting my birthday again next year, go ahead and witness to two people today, just in case!

Until the nets are full,
