After over a decade of going to shows I (finally) saw both Unearth and Killswitch Engage last night. It was everything.
Some teenage girl just called the wrong number and left me a super long voicemail explaining all of her boyfriend problems. Apparently her bf didn’t like her anymore, so they broke up, but her best friend who she knew since 2nd grade (they’re currently in 10th grade) told her he liked her, so they started dating, but then, she decided she didn’t like him. So she started dating her other friend (Wesley.) And then last night, she heard Wesley was cheating on her. So she confronted him about it, and he didn’t say anything. So now she is sad and doesn’t know what to do.
At the end of the message she asked for advice and I was just like….
For Today - “Pariah”
"You can’t kill me, I’m already dead"
"canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him. Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ.” - (Colossians 2:14-17)
"For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility.” - (Ephesians 2:14-16)
So, how about that ceremonial law?
