a weekend my wife and I have had. We just walked in tonight at 6:30. We were in Oklahoma City this weekend for the World American Quarter Horse Association Show that a good friend had qualified for, with one of her horses.

Having been exposed only to rodeo my whole life, this was a good learning experience for me. In rodeo timed events, the rider enters and may ride any horse, at any rodeo, any time. If the rider makes it to any kind of finals, they still have the option to use a different horse. The emphasis is the rider. With the American Quarter Horse Association Shows, the emphasis is on the horse, not the rider. The horse earns points for it’s opportunity to compete against the best of the best. We had a great time watching the different events, enjoying the culture and even experienced the earthquake 40 miles from the epicenter.

I enjoyed this learning experience because it reminded me of my salvation and how we are to experience it. It’s not about us. We didn’t do anything to earn it. We can’t buy it, or earn it. Salvation is all about Jesus, and we certainly will not qualify for Heaven without Him.  He is the one that carries us. John 14:6 says “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” These words of Jesus, places all the focus on Him. Come join us as we seek Jesus Tuesdays at 6:30 P.M. and Sundays at 9:00 A.M.
