I'm sure all of you who read my posts on a regular basis have wondered about some of the other contributing authors here, one of them being, my brother, Lucas...
Well, I have some unfortunate news to bring, folks, I talked to my brother earlier this week, and came to find that Lucas has acquired addiction to alcohol. I've tried to talk to him and persuade him on this potentially life-threatening addiction that he has, but it seems as if my words just go right over top of his head as if he never heard them. He told me, he said, "I just don't know what to do anymore, Jeremiah", and I told him, I said, "Well, Lucas, it's like this, when we don't try to serve the Lord the way we should, and we go looking for comfort and restitution in ourselves from the worldly people, who do the exact same thing that you are doing (going out to bars, and clubhouses), partying and living it up in sin, then the Lord can allow terrible things to happen to us, in order to make you look up to Him, when it was Him you should have looked to in the first place."
Well, Lucas was about half dazed when I told him that, and he said, "You know, Jeremiah, you're pretty good guy." He never paid a bit of attention.
Me and my brother were very close for a long time, and it's just hard for me to accept that he is destroying his life the way he is, and that's why I'm asking you to pray along with me that the Lord might convict Lucas of his addiction. Let's pray that Lucas will come back...that his body would be made so that he no-longer desires that life-destroying substance in his hand, and that he will have a desire to glorify Our Lord.
