Catching Up With Shelby

It's been quite a while since I've "conversed" with Shelby. She had a very long post today, which I barely even skimmed, but she did highlight a few items with large print, and I read those. Very interesting stuff.

The resurrected Lord told five hundred people to go back to Jerusalem to wait for the promise of the Holy Spirit, but after just twelve days there were only one hundred twenty still there. The Lord knew this would happen, and He often causes things to take longer than we would like to thin out the crowds, getting rid of the unfaithful, because anything of true significance must be built on faithful people. This is why He requires that we not only have faith, but also patience, to inherit the promises.

How true is this? If you want to read that very long post, check it out at Shelby's blog. Just make sure you've got more time than I do right now!

Hey Shelby, if you read this, thanks for the reply. Good to finally get you bookmarked again!
