The Cowboy Way



PhotobucketGo to Cowboys For A Cure

Being a Cowboy is doing the right thing; common
wisdom born of simple virtues and strong ideals.
Above all, it is a strict adherence to honesty even
when it is not in our best interests. It is having an inherent sense of justice in a world where the cards are often stacked against us. We try to hold
enough common sense to recognize the value of a
lost cause and the cost of lost values. Generally
speaking, we are quietly reserved in all things except freedom....

We have a keen eye for a good horse, and a good Cowboy. Constant to friends, we are more so when friends need us, less so when they don't. Familiar with hard work we also know hard knocks and hard roads. Often given to tears when lesser individuals would display indifference; we are as well given to joy in a few places others would only find disdain.


We enjoy plain living, not because we relish doing without, but because we have discovered the treasures within. And, finally, we have that elusive emotion called courage which is, at worst, a badly directed sense of conceit and, at best, it is the stuff dreams are made of.





Jesus Christ was already telling everyone about "The Cowboy Way". Not only was He telling everyone, He was living it, and I mean all of it, every minute of every day.

Cowboys Around The Campfire

First off, if you are a Christian you need to give credit where credit is due, and that's Christ Jesus. When we say we live "The Cowboy Way" intentionally or not we are denying the master of our lives. It may not seem like it but we are giving others credit for what Christ has done. None of them other fellers hung from a cross for us. None of those others washed the stain of sin from us with their blood. Only Christ did each and everyday. When people see how we act and how we treat others we want them to see Christ in us. This means we should live our lives like Christ did. Christ did not live and act the way he did only around people who participated in a church with him. He loved all, even when he was rebuking them for their sinful ways, and we should too. Everyday we should claim the mind of Christ so that the world can see His light shining in us. Folks may still see a cowboy or cowgirl, but they'll know that we ride with our Savior. And when some one says "He lives the Cowboy Way," we should look them square in the eye and say "No sir, I live for Christ."

But some of you may be asking, "I'm a good person, I do good things, I use my money to help others. I live the Cowboy Way. Why should I let Christ be the Lord of your life?" Real simple folks, for your salvation

I've met a passel of cowboys and cowgirls that are the salt of the earth. They'll give you the shirt off their back and the last penny they have if you need it, but they do not know Christ. Worse yet some have heard the truth of Christ and have rejected him. Folks no matter how good you are, no matter how many good works you do, no matter how much money you have you can not earn or buy your salvation. In fact nothing but faith in Jesus can bring you salvation. John 14:6 says "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to Father, but by Me." This means simply that there is only one way to God, through Christ Jesus. You need to open the door and let Christ into your life. He is knocking, all you have to do is open the door and receive the salvation he offers.

Don't think you're good enough. Think you need to straighten your life out first. Partners you can't fix it on your own. Our Lord knows that. But folks he throws a mighty big loop. He has room for all and it doesn't matter where you are in your life. He'll pull you out of the brush and move you to the lush pasture land the Father has promised. And unlike some folks he doesn't cull his herd. He accepts all for he knows we are all sinners in need of what he offers freely.
