    Lucky ~ It will change your thinking and habits!

    Who do you consider lucky? The person who wins the lottery? The one who never has to be concerned about money or how it is spent (or wasted)? The one who has made it to the top in the entertainment and business fields? Those are the people the world calls lucky.

    In Luke's Beatitudes in Luke 6:20-23, those whom the world calls unlucky, the poor, the hungry, the mourning, and the persecuted, Jesus called lucky or blessed.

    Lucky by Glenn Packiam, the pastor of New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, has written a recently released, in-depth study, of Luke's Beatitudes. The author slowly told his position, giving the reader much to consider. About one-third of the way through this book, a lightbulb clicked on, and I had greater understanding of his message.

    Those who have received Christ are the unlikely luck-bearers. We received God's blessing of salvation when we never have or will deserve it. Lucky. It is our duty to take our luck (blessing) and share it with the poor, hungry, mourning, and persecuted, to not only live as luck-bearers, but also be luck-bearers. This sharing, Glenn Packiam states, is not only in salvation, but also in meeting needs around the world, representing Christ.

    I applaud the author for stating the hypocrisy of those who say they are against sex trafficking ~ yet committing adultery; giving and raising money to feed and clothe the poor in other countries ~ yet foolishly spending money at home...all in the name of God bless you. He clearly states that followers of Christ are the only ones who can truly be that physical example of Christ to physically meet the needs of those mentioned in Luke 6.

    The author goes one step further.
    "Every area-every area: how we treat others, where we buy our food and clothing, the way we vote, and the way we work- must be brought under God's reign. And that may take on different hues on each individual canvas. We must not stand as anyone's judge. But each must raise the questions and wrestle through to answers. And then wrestle through again and again until Messiah returns. "
    What a powerful statement and reason for each of us to examine our lives and habits.

    I highly recommend you read this book. This is not fluff. It will cause you to dig deep and think. God may do some changing in your life. But you will conclude with the author that we who know Christ, have that opportunity to share Him with the world, are indeed Lucky.
