You all know I am a huge Seinfeld fan. So when I found out they were going to recreate the apartment out in Hollywood, I had to go there. The wait of course would be long for this free event but I didn’t care. I had to go. I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. And let me tell you, it was worth it!
The exhibit was to open at 10AM but I knew that with the popularity of the show with its revival with Hulu, I had to get there somewhat early. I got in line at around 9:15AM. It would take me about 90 minutes in line before I could get in. By noon time, the line was a four-hour wait.
As I walked in, I was greeted by a ton of famous quotes from the show. True fans would recognize each and every one of them. In front was the booth from Monk’s on display.
SEE ALL THE PHOTOS I TOOK RIGHT HERE
I remember my sophomore year. Or maybe it was my junior year. One of those years in college we invited a guest speaker to speak at fellowship. He was a pastor but admitted he didn’t feel like being at the meeting. He didn’t have the passion to preach. But he did relay one message. He was going to preach because he didn’t want people to go to hell. He wanted to share the gospel. He didn’t want anyone to leave without knowing about Jesus. He would not squander away the chance.
“I DON’T WANT MY FRIENDS TO GO TO HELL!” he yelled out. He said that at every opportunity possible, he would preach the gospel. He felt convicted to share the good news to anyone he saw. I admired that. Then I looked at myself and see how far away I am from it.
Where is my conviction. I sure don’t want my friends going to hell. Isn’t that enough already to motivate me to preach the word to my friends. Doesn’t that motivate me enough to at least try bringing up the good news? Instead I cost through life knowing that people I care about are going to hell.
That’s heavy. Salvation is that important to me. Yet here I am holding onto the word and not sharing it. Where is my urgency? Maybe I’ve been too careful for too long. Maybe I just need to trust God more.
That message still sticks to me. I still don’t know why I haven’t done anything about it yet.
The #IceBucketChallenge that’s going on all over social media is a Seinfeld episode.
Kramer is in California and everyone is doing the Ice Bucket Challenge. Kramer, being conscious of California’s water drought situation, decides to not participate in dousing himself in ice cold water. He knows that he can’t waste water.
He gets ostracized by his peers, including Bob and Cedric, whom have all done the ice bucket challenge, posted videos on Facebook and tagged friends to do the same.
“Aren’t you against ALS?” they ask.
Recently I have been watching random Seinfeld videos on YouTube. Just a little thing to get me laughing.
The show is so brilliant in so many ways. I can watch any episode anytime. It’s just so funny. I love it!
