trying to think...but it is not working

June 26 2005
here i am, still awake at 0317a.m.
listening to a mars hill church mp3
i haven't spent any time with God today. During the week I am desperate to spend time with God, but on the weekend I am quite busy with laundry or spending my life savings at wal mart. Why am I like that? This mp3 is incredibly is titled "sin" quoting philippians chapter 2...
3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.
5Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
6Who, being in very nature[a] God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
7but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
8And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
and became obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father

i am such a proud person. so sinful. what a great GOD i have! how awesome. i am floored by what Jesus did for me. i haven't done anything to deserve it, nor have i always acted grateful.
something that the pastor on this mp3 brought out is that first we need to be be saved we have realize that Jesus is GOD..broken befor God and realizing our utter sinfulness so that we need to be saved we desire it, we want to be saved....
