Topic: +DEV+. The Joy of Our Hearts

The Joy of Our Hearts

"How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! ,Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart."  Psalm 119:103, 111

Scripture Focus: Psalm 119

Reading Psalm 119 is like stealing a look at a love letter. The writer of this beautiful psalm is almost euphoric in expressing his love for God's Word. He feasts on it, yet he hungers for more. He bathes in its fathomless wisdom, yet he longs to return to it. While it satisfies him, it also increases his desire to learn. From the Word he has gained wisdom that exceeds the knowledge of his teachers. That alone would seem to be enough. But he goes on to tell of blessings that surpass having his intellectual needs met. God's Word is worth more to him than gold, is better than a generous inheritance, and tastes better than the sweetest food he knows. Truly it fills his heart with joy. Would you be able to say that you feel similarly about God's Word? Or do those words seem ho-hum to you? Does the Bible you own sit unopened most days, collecting dust on the shelf? Go back to God's Word today. Read it with an open heart as the living God speaks to you through its pages. Let the joy of the Lord begin to fill you again.


Insight: How's your appetite? As you feast on the Word of God, you'll be filled to overflowing with joy that takes you beyond this world's troubles.

Topic: +DEV+  Clean-Really Clean

Clean-Really Clean

"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves,. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."  1 John 1: 8-9

Scripture Focus: 1 John 1

My grandmother was our family stain expert. Whatever had soiled our cloths or table linens was brought under her carful  scrutiny. After analyzing the stain with her expertise, she prescribed the removal. Her only requirement was, "Bring it to me right away. Don't wait, and don't do anything to it before showing it to me. If you try to treat it, you may set the stain and make it impossible to remove." Grandmother was right, and her advice is a small picture paralleling God's remedy for the sin which soils our hearts. Bring it to Him right away before it takes root and sets itself in you. Perhaps you identify with David who describes the problems that come from living with the stain of sin. You feel like your bones are wasting away; your strength is sapped. You feel completely miserable until you finally admit the sin and stop trying to conceal it from God (vs. 5). Immediately God's forgiveness washes over you, restoring your joy. You are clean-really clean. And what has made you whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Insight: When we confess our sins, the Lord can be counted on to forgive and cleanse us every single time.

Our Unseen Companion

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20

Scripture Focus: Matthew 28

Jesus has given us a job to do. We are not left on earth solely to enjoy the benefits of our relationship with Him. He asks us to always be serving Him, spreading the good news of salvation throughout our planet. Some of us who are more mobile can go to the far reaches of the earth. Others of us will tell the gospel right here at home. As we fulfill the varied expressions of this mission, we experience Jesus' promise that He will be with us every step of the way. Whether this means we are off to Afghanistan, or Germany, or the gas station across the street, we are in the circumference of His promised presence. The way that you carry Christ to others may change dramatically throughout the course of your life. Yet every part of you-time, resources, talents, desires, can be used for the furthering of the gospel message. All of your prayer interests and delights of your heart are related to Christ's kingdom. Whether you go far away or never leave your town, you have the personal presence of your Savior traveling with you.

Insight: Ask the Lord to make the spread of His gospel a high priority in your life. You'll know Him as your traveling companion when you do!

Known and Loved

"I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me-just as the Father knows me and I know the Father-and I lay down my life for the sheep."  John 10:14-15

Scripture Focus: John 10

An envelope arrived with my name and address neatly typed on it, a decorative stamp in the corner. I opened it and began to read the letter. The writer greeted me by name and then began, "Because of your interest in,…” I immediately assumed the writer remembered a recent conversation and was sending me the information I had requested. To the contrary! It was just a promotional mailer. My name was used, but I was not known at all. How different things are with our Good Shepherd! He speaks to the real person within, regarding each of us with our individualities. He knows our deepest longings and our highest aspirations. He knows our apathy and our exhaustion. Our bitter regrets, frustrated hopes, and secret dreams are all perfectly familiar to Him. While He knows the very best and worst in us, still He loves us. Our Good Shepherd has committed Himself to our daily care. He has not sent an empty letter; He has given us the gift of His rich, inspired, God- breathed Word through which we know Him more and more.


Insight: We can never know ourselves better than Christ knows us. We can never be loved more perfectly than He has loved us.

Topic: +DEV+  Living in Love

Living in Love

"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love."  John 15:9-10a

Scripture Focus: John 15



When Jesus speaks of love, He speaks in the past, the present, and the future. In the past His Father has loved Him and He has loved us. But now, in the present, we remain in the sphere of His perfect love. And in the future we will continue to be bathed in His love. Never has there been a time-nor will there ever be-when His love has not been perfect. Jesus tells us this (vs. 11) so that we may know complete joy through Him. I've seen many a struggling believer who finds memories of the past, troubles of today, and anxieties of the future robbing them of joy. Do not forget that the Lord has chosen you, has loved you with an everlasting love, and has laid down His life for you. And He backs it all up with this indisputable declaration of who He is: "'I am the Alpha and the Omega,' says the Lord God, 'who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty'" (Revelation 1:8). When we obey the Almighty and show love to those around us, we bear fruit that will last, flourishing in our God who has loved us and always will.

Insight: Our love- hungry hearts long to enjoy Christ's love to the full. We are satisfied when we obey Him and express love to others.

Surrounded

"Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore."  Psalm 125:1-2

Scripture Focus: Psalm 125

A Bible teacher talked about decorating the entrance to his classroom and the hallway leading to it. "I want it to look like a fortress so that when the kids enter, they will feel they are absolutely safe. No matter what they are dealing with at home or with their peers, they can be assured of safety here. When they come in, they will be built up to leave later and face the world." In a similar way, God's people felt safe and protected in Jerusalem. The city was surrounded by mountains which the psalm writer saw as a picture of God reaching out to protect and shelter His own. Perhaps where you live there are mountains, hills, a forest, or something that surrounds and gives a feeling of being sheltered. We won't be able to avoid the experiences of life that buffet us and leave us feeling exposed or alone. Stress and pain will be part of life. But the Lord who loves us has placed us in a protected valley, surrounding us with His strong arms of love. Let the storms come while we are sheltered in His safe embrace.

Insight: Why keep trying to confront your problems alone? Rely on the Lord, your strong tower, to whom you can run and be safe.

Help, Lord!

"The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry. The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles."  Psalm 34:15, 17

Scripture Focus: Psalm 34

Right now, this very moment, a cruel and evil enemy is on the prowl. You may be his intended victim. "Be alert," we are warned. "Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour" (1 Peter 5:8). Temptation, the enemy's favorite tool, comes in many forms. The struggle demands our full concentration. Our resistance weakens just as our enemy hoped. We wear down, and it grows more and more difficult to shout out, "No!" Help is at hand, and His name is Jesus! Remind yourself of this truth from John's first New Testament letter: "The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world" (John 4:4). We do not have to succumb to the devil. Also, be assured that the Lord's eyes are on us constantly. His ears are always tuned in to our cries. There is no panic when we try to get through on heaven's 911 emergency number. In fact, He knows our dilemma before we even state it. Put your trust in the only One who makes promises and keeps them. His grace and mercy will see you through.

Insight: Do you fear you cannot withstand temptation? On your own, you can't! Admit your weakness. Know that the God you call out to will rescue you.

Marked by Grace

"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."  Hebrews 4:16

Scripture Focus: Hebrews 4


Failure! That word could be stamped across the lives of the children of Israel. Sometimes it would refer to their failure to perform. But more often, it would mark their failure to believe. God promised them spiritual fulfillment, but when the Israelites heard His Word, they did not listen with faith and failed to enter into the blessing God had for them. You and I know how much we fail, too. But we needn't be marked by a stamp across us that says "failure." When we hear His Word, we must listen with faith. And don't try to deceive yourself inwardly, turning away from His good instruction. You can't fool the Lord. The words of Scripture monitor our hearts, sifting our deepest, most subtle thoughts and attitudes. God's complete knowledge of us need not produce fear and shame. We have Jesus who stands in heaven on our behalf. We carry not the stamp that says "failure," but instead the banner over us proclaiming God's grace. The flame of our faith often burns feebly. But Jesus never turns His love and approval from us.


Insight: Christ invites us to come to Him with confidence so we can find grace in our moment of need.

Go with God's Blessing

"The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace." Numbers 6:24-26

Scripture Focus: Numbers 6

God's blessing for His people is in His presence. While He welcomes wanderers home, how much better and how sweet our fellowship when we stay in that place of blessing. "For God, who said, Let light shine out of darkness, made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ" (2 Corinthians 4:6). Living on this side of the cross, we know God's presence with us internally (through the Holy Spirit) as well as externally (through the Word and through creation). "And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit" (2 Corinthians 3:18). This is not complex and impractical––it is the hope we cling to. If you have met the God of the Bible personally, you are being conformed to Jesus' character. And all along the way- through the failures, successes, hardships, and joys-you'll know the deep, unconditional love of the One who gave His life for you. Go with His blessing!

Insight: A relationship with God in Jesus Christ will transform relationships and will bring others into His light.

Our Ever-Present Help

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress."  Psalm 46:1-2, 11

Scripture Focus: Psalm 46

Our hearts yearn for a life without trouble, but God does not guarantee that. What He does promise is that He will be our refuge and strength while we experience trouble. When we learn to count on Him, we will not be gripped by terror even in times of disaster. Services we depend on-cell phones, electricity, water, fire and police protection-may all fail. One resource remains untouched by catastrophe: God. Nothing can cut us off from Him. The psalm writer describes the worst: natural disasters on land and sea, international crises of war, and political upheavals. Sometimes it sounds alarmingly like today. But even when our tragedies reach beyond human intervention, our Savior is there. It's not that He comes running when you call on Him-He is already there even as the disaster strikes! And He's been there all along, not just as an onlooker or even as a compassionate rescue worker. He is your personal, secure refuge and strength. The God who stood by Jacob (deceitful and wayward as he often was) will stand by you, too.

Insight: No troubles in your life at the moment? Praise God for that, but also know that when the next trial does come, He is your refuge.

A Good Departure

"Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes."  James 4:14

Scripture Focus: James 4

Do you give much thought to when your days on this earth will be over? You probably do, the older you get. As loved ones are taken by cancer, car accidents, old age, heart attacks, etc., the reality of the James passage weighs in. With that in mind, think of all that Jesus did before leaving this earth. He prayed for His disciples (John17:17). He spoke to them of hope (John 14:26). He gave work instructions (Matthew 28:20). He provided for his mother (John 19:27). He alerted His followers about the future (Matthew 24:24-25). He promised to prepare new dwelling places for believers (John 14:2). He said He would return (John 14:3). It surely would be good if we too made provisions for our loved ones for after we have departed. Deliberate planning can make an agonizing time for families less painful. But of all the forethought you could give to earthly matters, nothing is of greater consequence than knowing where your soul will be for eternity. With all your heart, turn to Jesus, the One who gave His life for you. It will be the best thing you've ever done––for this life and the next.

He says, "When he gets to the next sharp curve, instead of slowing down, he will accelerate in order to be free from the track." You would not be pleased! For a train, freedom is staying on the track; getting off is only an illusion of freedom and will bring catastrophe. As we grow older, we realize that true freedom does not mean "do what you want." Believers in Christ know that freedom is staying on the track laid out for us in the Bible. Conformity to Christ's character is God's desire for every Christian. When we see Him in His humanity, we know Him more. If someone wants to know what God is like, we point them to Jesus. His life shows us how to treat one another, and His law actually frees us to live as we were meant to live. Praise God we have a loving Father whom we can approach freely and confidently. He's paid for your ticket and will safely lead you home.

Insight: Stay on track for a good finish!

Topic: +DEV+  The "Luck of the Pot"

The "Luck of the Pot"

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer."  Acts 2:42

Scripture Focus: Acts 2

Sometimes smaller churches, including ours, maintain a tradition that has lasted through generations: the church potluck. These dinners started out with each family bringing its "house specialty," a dish nobody else could make quite as well-or so the compliments shared at the meal would have it. What ended up comprising the meal was the "luck of the pot." That original concept of the church potluck is a good illustration of mutual ministry among believers. Each person brings his or her specialty, a combination of abilities and experiences that nobody else quite duplicates. The gifts the Holy Spirit gives come together in a wonderful array of specialties all designed to minister. Usually, some degree of organization is needed, as with the potluck dinner, so that there will be balance. But the Lord who has planned it all is creating a feast of gifts so that His people are reached, ministered to, and nourished in ways we never could have dreamed up ourselves. And in His providence, there is no "luck" involved at all!

Insight: "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds." (Hebrews 10:24)

Topic: +DEV+  Your Pastor-Shepherd

Your Pastor-Shepherd

"Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as overseers-not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve."  1 Peter 5:2

Scripture Focus: 1 Peter 5

Whether you are on your own, are a spouse in a marriage, or are a part of a growing and larger family, you will benefit from the nurture and care of a godly pastor. Solid pastors proclaim the gospel, believe in the authority of Scripture, and model Christ. They are not flawless people, but they are indeed charged to look out for the spiritual growth of their flock. Pastors not only teach us of God's unbreaking, forever love for His people, but also they expose us to the Bible's sharp edges that cut through our sin and self- reliance. Gathering in a church building for a few hours one day of every week is becoming counter- cultural in today's world. People are more apt to sing the praises of themselves rather than sing actual praises to a God they cannot see. Submitting to the teaching of a good pastor seems to go against a popular humanist philosophy that says, "I will be persuaded by no man." As you surrender your life to the Good Shepherd, pray for and care for the pastor- shepherds God has placed you under.

Insight: Let the idea of a yearly pastor appreciation time carry over to the days and weeks all year long. Your spiritual leaders reflect the Good Shepherd.

Topic: +DEV+  Send Out the Word

Send Out the Word

"They had such a sharp disagreement that they parted company. Barnabas took Mark and sailed for Cyprus, but Paul chose Silas and left, commended by the brothers to the grace of the Lord."  Acts 15:39-40

Scripture Focus: Acts 15

The history of missions includes exciting, adventurous stories of God's leading and protection. Often the accounts leave those of us back home on the couch wondering if we could ever take on such challenges! It's interesting that the Bible has given us some detail about an argument between Paul and Barnabas over a missionary journey. Barnabas was Paul's trusted friend, missionary colleague, and benefactor to the infant church, but he was in disagreement with Paul about whether John Mark should be making the upcoming trip with them. Their "sharp disagreement" resulted in both going their separate ways. But the Lord would use this argument to further the reach of the gospel as it went out to the world. To go out into our world proclaiming the good news of Jesus, we must stay focused, travel light, and know when to back down. Above all, be prayerful. You can't always be right, but you can be full of grace and charity as you bring the most marvelous message of grace and charity that the world could ever know.

Insight: Lucy asks Linus what he learned in Sunday school. He replies, "That we should go to all the world and preach the Gospel, but we didn't. We just sat there."

Topic: +DEV+  Angels Surrounding Us

Angels Surrounding Us

"See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that thier angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven."  Matthew 18:10

Scripture Focus: Matthew 18

The 2011 tornado that decimated a third of the city of Joplin, Missouri, took the lives of 161 people. Among many stories of survival that surfaced after the disaster were reports of angels rescuing children. A small boy who was sucked up into the tornado and then found walking in a field was asked where he lived. When he gave his address, the sheriff asked how he could be six miles from home. "An angel caught me in the sky and brought me here," the boy replied. Another little girl told of a "giant butterfly angel" covering her with its wings so she and her mother were not crushed by an overturning car. Other accounts were equally stunning. The Bible gives us small glimpses of angels. The few details we have been told offer these assurances: the Lord's angels come and go in this world (Hebrews 13:2); the Lord's angel army is powerful (Luke 2:13); the Lord watches over us more than we could ever imagine (Psalm 91:11). In the eye of life's storms, you're surrounded with His care and even with His angels, guarding you each step of the way.

Insight: "The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him." (Psalm 34:7)

Topic: +DEV+  The Bitterness Trap

The Bitterness Trap

"Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."  Ephesians 4:31-32

Scripture Focus: Ephesians 4

Only through Jesus can we rid ourselves of bitterness. His entire life showed us how to forgive, even to His last few moments on the cross. As He looked out at bitter humanity-at those who mocked Him, spat on Him, and watched Him be beaten beyond recognition-He spoke solemn words: "Father, forgive them" (Luke 23:34). Bitterness is the acid that consumes the container. We don't hold onto it so much as it holds onto us. A bitter person is negative, never satisfied, and forever bringing up old wounds. The only cure is forgiveness. Marriages, families, and friendships can all be ruined by just one bitter person who feels justified in his/her feelings. But these relationships also can be saved by the reality of the One Person who gave perfect forgiveness at Calvary. While Jesus spoke directly to those gathered around the cross, His prayer that the Father would forgive them is spoken for you and me, too. Let Jesus' words dissolve the bitterness you may harbor. He has freely forgiven you, so go ahead and forgive others.

Insight: Come to the fountain of Jesus' precious blood. Be cleansed and forgiven today, forgiving others along the way.

Topic: +DEV+  A Wedding Feast for Everyone


A Wedding Feast for Everyone

"Then the angel said to me, Write: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the lamb! And he added, These are the true words of God."  1 John 4:1

1 John 4

Some people will never marry and find it very difficult to be single. Many women hear the echo of the rather dismal adage, "Always a bridesmaid, never a bride." For the Christian, that saying is a myth in one important respect: being the bride of Christ is the ultimate privilege. Throughout time, people have chosen singleness willingly, preferring, as the Apostle Paul did, to remain unmarried in their lives of ministry (1 Corinthians 7). The remarkable Sophie Muller was one such saint. Beginning in the 1940s, she started over 50 churches, translated the Bible into countless dialects, and founded a Bible institute in the jungles of Columbia. From age 19 until she died in her 80s, she was active in speaking and ministry. Sophie Muller knew that Jesus Christ was her all in all. Believers who walk through life alone can know as well that their Bridegroom is calling them. Every one of us who trusts in Jesus can be assured that we are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb. Don't miss the feast at which our Lord has promised us a place!

Insight: When brides like Sophie meet their groom, what a wedding feast it will be! And all of their spiritual children will be there!

Topic: +DEV+  Wise Stewards

Wise Stewards


"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs."  1 Timothy 6:10

Scripture Focus: 1 Timothy 6

A great deal of life in families will necessarily revolve around money-its abundance or its lack. The God who made us knew how all-consuming it would be, so Scripture speaks often to the topic. The Lord knows our need of it. Paul spoke plainly about it. Money in itself is certainly not evil. But as we grow older, we all become more aware of money's ability to do great good or great harm in society. I had the chance to meet a dear Christian woman We will call Mrs. Jones as my children played various games at the "Jones Center." It turned out that she was the name behind that beautiful facility as well as the name behind some of the popular places of the buisnesses around town. She and her husband had no children of their own, so they invested in the ones growing up near them. Whether you are in plenty or in want, remember that all you have and work hard to own belongs to the Lord. We are simply His stewards of it. Your Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and He surely owns and loves you, too.

Insight: The evangelist D. L. Moody once remarked that the last thing in most people's lives to get converted is the pocketbook. Live generously!

Topic: +DEV+  The Priceless Wife
The Priceless Wife
"A wife of noble character who can find?"  Proverbs 31:10a
Scripture Focus: Proverbs 31
Many a hardworking wife who knows the Proverbs 31 list of qualities to measure up to is glad for that opening question. Could anyone ever find a wife like this? She serves her husband, family, and community. She is ambitious and trustworthy. She prepares food and clothing for the family and the poor. She finds bargains, stays in shape, purchases real estate, and speaks wisdom and kindness at all times. It's an overwhelming list! How could any woman accomplish it all? The godly wife need not feel burdened to meet this perfect standard. The principles set out in the closing of Proverbs are things a wife would do well to aim for. But the Lord is not imposing a harsh to-do list. He knows our failures. He wants two people in a marriage to work hard for each other's good, seeking to serve in whatever capacity they can. But most of all, He wants us to see that overshadowing our shortcomings is our great need for a Savior. We can't do it all, but He already has! Of even more value than a good wife, the Lord Himself is priceless.
Insight: "May God himself, sanctify you, the one who calls you is faithful and he will do it." (1 Thessalonians 5:23a, 24)

Topic: +DEV+  Honesty

Honesty

"My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes."  Jeremiah 16:17

Scripture Focus: Jeremiah 16

Honesty is perhaps the most precious gift two people in any relationship can give each other. Our inner motives as well as our outer actions are all known to God and-thankfully-are constantly cleansed by the blood of Jesus. When we use dishonesty to get what we want, we only fool ourselves. Politicians, celebrities, sports heroes, and business moguls make light of truth and honesty. They may show us regret for being caught in lies, but rarely would we see contriteness for wrongdoing or a request for forgiveness. Praise God that there is a better place to look, and His name is Jesus! When He was brought before one of the most powerful and prominent people of the known world, Jesus stopped Pilate short with these words: "In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me" (John 18:37). Make honesty a permanent part of your relationships, especially in marriage which is itself to be a picture of Christ's honest, enduring love for you.

Insight: Lord, thank you for healing us from our sin and shame. Show us how we may rise up and serve you today.

Topic: +DEV+  Extended Family

Extended Family

"Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone."  Ephesians 2:19-20

Scripture Focus: Ephesians 2

God's plan for marriage makes the home a place of blessing for the husband and wife, for their children, and for any who come into contact with them. Marriage is the foundation of all institutions in society. It was the very first structure that God wove into life with Adam and Eve; the two became as one. Organizations in government, economics, and education are built on the interdependent connectedness of humanity which finds its basic expression in marriage. The family home establishes a context for spiritual and intellectual growth, development of economic and social responsibility, and appreciation of living with different yet complimentary personalities. The church, then, is an extended family, and we are His adopted children. God's household provides a nurturing atmosphere which draws its members together. Psalm 68:6 tells us, "God sets the lonely in families," whether blood- related or spiritually united. We can show the patterns of love that should govern all other relations as the Bible enters into real life.

Insight: A home that is secured by obedient faith has a pervading sense of calm acceptance and affection which can weather any storm.

Urgent Words: Watch

"Keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch." Matthew 24: 42-43a

Scripture Focus: Matthew 24

Jesus connected the deep truths of His kingdom to commonplace images so those listening to Him at the time and all of us through the ages could relate.. If you have ever had anything stolen or know someone whose home was broken into, you know what Jesus is saying here. No one ever has an idea of when a robber might come. But if a person had known, great measures would have been taken beforehand to prevent it. That is sort of how it is with us who know Jesus' promise that He will indeed come again. If we believe He is telling the truth, we will not be indifferent; we will take care and be prepared! He has told us that He will come to judge all evil-to separate the sheep from the goats-and to take His precious ones home with Him (Matthew 25:31-46). His words carry great urgency. But we also have great assurance from the hope of salvation. God did not appoint you to suffer His wrath; He appointed His own Son to take that wrath for you so you might live in peace and joy with Him, both for this life and the next.

Insight: Christ died for you so that whether you're awake or asleep when He comes, you'll live together with Him!

Urgent Words: Baptize

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."  Matthew 28:19

Scripture Focus: Matthew 28

I love attending or officiating at baptism services when people who have accepted Christ as their Savior show that they are a new creation. Jesus' command to baptize is as fresh now as when He first spoke the words. Water baptism demonstrates what has happened to a person: the old life is buried in the water; the new life emerges. It is a declaration that the old has passed away and the new truly has arrived. As I write these words, I am excited because this coming Sunday I will be watching the baptizing of a good friend. Born a Jew in New York and now in his 70s, Ezekiel has found and accepted Jesus Christ as his Messiah. He has fallen in love with Jesus and wants everyone to know it. When he called me several weeks ago to tell me about his baptism, I was in tears. Sunday will be a special moment for Ezekiel, and for a congregation who will celebrate with him. If you have not made a decision to live your life for Christ, if you have not read His words to you in the Bible, if you have never been baptized, perhaps now is the time!


Insight: When a person enters the waters of baptism, they are saying to their world, "I am a child of God."

Urgent Words: Go, Preach

"He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."  Mark 16:15-16

Scripture Focus: Mark 16

I heard those words loud and clear one Wednesday afternoon in the back of the church when I was a teenager, and I was so scared of the idea that I argued with God and ran for 8 years from the calling. Jesus gave the "Go Command" to the disciples just before He was taken up into heaven. What a moment that must have been! Their response was immediate. The Bible says they went out and "preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them" (Mark 16:20). The great commission has never changed. Every follower of Christ is called-perhaps to your next door neighbor, to your friend at work, or to some faraway place in our world. Don't be put off by the word "preach." While some surely are called to preach as you know it from a church pulpit, each of us carries the message of the gospel to others, preaching it as Jesus commanded. My Uncle Harold once told me, “Mike, the most important sermon you will ever preach is the one you preach in your home." A pastor's Sunday sermons are important, but so are the acts of kindness you extend to others, "preaching" with your life.

Insight: "God's command to 'Go ye, and preach the gospel to every creature' was the categorical imperative. The question of personal safety was wholly irrelevant." (Elizabeth Elliot)

Urgent Words: Be Reborn

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."  John 3:16

Scripture Focus: John 3

This session we've looked at some of the sweet words of Jesus, the challenging words of Jesus, and the deep, longer teachings of Jesus. Now we turn to several passages of His most urgent words, beginning with the well-known John 3:16, a passage of great significance despite its familiarity. Jesus' strong words to Nicodemus about salvation through Him were radical, changing everything Nicodemus thought he understood about God. Jesus showed him that all his knowledge and model living were not guarantees of salvation. That would come with rebirth and belief in Christ. During 40 years of ministry life, I have had the joy of kneeling alongside people at church altars, opening my Bible, and sharing the truth with them. I have inserted their names in the place of the "whoever" in John 3:16. I've wept with them as they accept Jesus as their Savior. Without Christ, people are lost and hopeless. But reborn in Christ, they are on the way to heaven. Rejoice, because even the angels in heaven celebrate when one person is born again!

Insight: Sin cannot enter heaven. It's like we get a do-over when we are called to be born again.
