GET Acquainted! (Column, Oct. 10th, for Universal Personality upandp.net)

GET Acquainted!

Hello, and welcome to GET! I know, I know--it's a strange name for a Christian column.
I mean, Christians are supposed to be all about giving, right? Servants for the Lord?

Don't worry, my heart's in the right place. You see, even Christians have needs--I know I do. Early in my Christian life, I needed to know how to pray (GET Prayer!). Later on, when God led me to my wife, I needed to know how to be a good husband (GET Married!). And now, with my beautiful, intelligent, and spiritual wife and life, I have two children, a home, two jobs, my writing (a love, not a job--a need, not a job), and 120 kids who depend on me being with them every weekday (GET Your Head Examined!), and I need God more than ever.

More seriously, though, I seek to share with you, the readers. In this column, let's look at the Bible and biblical figures (GET Paul!), special occasions and what they mean (GET Wet! Get Baptized!), and the habits of Christians (GET Giving!). Let's check out why we do what we do (GET Faith!), and how we get there (GET Grace!).

Now don't get me wrong -- I haven't planned hundreds of topics and scheduled them all in neatly. My guarantee to you is that I will pray about needs, I will pray about topics, and I will pray for the Spirit to fill me as I write, so that I may be a worthy vessel in His service.

Now remember -- sharing works two ways. It means that, in the beginning, many of the examples and issues may come from me (through much prayer), but over time, the issues you care about and share with me will find their way here. E-mail me your hopes and fears, your failures and rewards, your dreams. Let's learn together what Christians need to succeed!

As an end to this beginning, I'd like to share a few words that a dying man once left with a pastor. He said, "My advice to you is to always remember to say four simple things:

1. Thank you.
2. Forgive me.
3. I forgive you.
4. I love you."

These words will serve us well in any relationship, especially the one we have with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Now, in addition to these four statements, I have two more words I'd like to leave you with, words that work in any situation, whether celebration or tragedy:

GET GOD!

I ask you for your love and prayers, as I offer mine to you.
