Which Klingon are you?

In the original Star Trek TV show Klingons looked like men with dirt on their faces and goatees.   Nothing like what future Klingons look like.  The difference is so great between them and what we now consider to be a Klingon that there was even mention of it in the Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode Trials and Tribble-ations.  The DS9 crew had to go back in time to stop Darvin (a dishonored Klingon spy) from altering the outcome of the original series episode The Trouble With Tribbles.   The crew doesn't recognize the Klingons on the station and all that Worf will say when asked is that they don't discuss it with outsiders but it is clear that they are a major embarrassment to the Klingon empire.  So there are two different types of Klingons that we have seen in the Star Trek universe.  If you were to say the word Klingon it would sound a lot like Cling-on. So as a Christian, what do you cling onto?

Are you the original series Klingon.  They aren't real Klingons but wannabes without honor.  Do you claim to follow God yet cling to the things of this world?  Holding onto money, power, objects, other people instead of God?  Or when adversity hits do you keep calm and "Klingon" to God?  the honorable thing in relying on our Creator and Savior.  Is everything given to God?  He wants it all, not just bits and pieces. 

So, are you an honorable Klingon able to trust in God and stand firm in the fight against Satan?  Or do you still hold back and just give the appearance? Only you can answer.

Who's your Valentine?

 Let's face it, in less than two weeks that "holiday" will be among us.  It's easy for those that have somebody that they can celebrate with, to not feel lonely with.  I've always seen it as the cruelest of holidays, one for the beautiful, popular, and rich.  If you weren't any of those it just felt like rubbing salt in a wound, another reminder that one is alone.  Until I realized that I was looking at the wrong day.

See, my Valentine's day is what others refer to as Good Friday.  It's the day that my Prince Charming held out His arms and said "I Love You This Much" and died for me.  The day that He declared to the world that He would rather die then spend eternity without me (which He did btw).  The day that the gates of Hell shattered and death itself couldn't hold one as mighty as Jesus.  The world got to see first hand what Love really looks like.  And He doesn't stop there but continues to bless and Love those that love Him.

I belong to Jesus, heart, mind, and soul.  I am His valentine and He is mine.  Jesus never came to the earth to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved (John 3:17) and that includes you and me.  So if you're feeling unloved this February 14th, just remember the one that died for you.  If need be, watch the Passion and get a glimpse of what true Love really looks like.  The thought of spending eternity without you tears at His very being.  That's what kept Him on the cross, the knowledge that the cross is the only way to make it happen.  Happy Valentine's Day everyone.

God Bless and Remember to Always be a Snakebird.
