    The Hungry Thief

    April 20, 2017

    The Hungry Thief

    Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.
    Matthew 5:6

    Last fall, a homeowner in Rockland, Massachusetts, was awakened at 1:30 a.m. by sounds in his kitchen. After calling the police, he went to investigate himself. An intruder was cooking corn on the cob. The two men got into a scuffle, but police officers arrived in time to arrest the thief before anyone was hurt. What happened to the corn wasn’t reported.

     

    Everyone knows what it’s like to be hungry. We have stomach pains, feel weak and famished, and crave our favorite foods. But how is our spiritual appetite? Do we ever feel spiritual hunger pains? Jesus told us we should be hungry and thirsty every day—that we should crave righteousness. But this might not come naturally; it’s an acquired taste.

    Like a child learning to like a new food, let’s begin tasting what God desires for us. Turn away from sin; give up spiritual junk food. Start reading your Bible more, living it out, and practicing the Spirit-filled life. Soon you’ll notice if you miss a day of conscious fellowship with the Lord. That’s when you’ll discover that a good spiritual appetite is a blessing.

    A good, healthy, natural or spiritual appetite is a gift of God, and something for which to be grateful.

    Biblical Optimism

    April 4, 2017

    Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.”  Numbers 13:30

    There is a part of the body of Christ that has adopted a slogan from the secular self-help movement: “If you can conceive it and believe it, you can achieve it!” If you can conceive of yourself as an astronaut or a star player in the NBA, and believe it with all your heart, are you likely to achieve such a goal? The answer for most adults is “No.”

    What’s good about the “name it and claim it” school is that it encourages us not to limit ourselves or God. What’s wrong with this approach is that it misapplies the words of Jesus. For example, a corollary of Jesus’ words in Mark 9:23 is that “all things are possible for [God]”—words Jesus spoke on the night of His arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane (Mark 14:36). Jesus believed it was possible for Him not to go to the cross, and He also believed it was possible for God to keep Him from that suffering. Yet He went to the cross anyway.

    Our beliefs and possibilities have to be in line with the will of God. That’s how Jesus lived His life and how He taught His disciples to live (John 5:30). When our lives are lived in obedience to God’s will, nothing is impossible. Dream big—but dream biblically!


    Christ wants not nibblers at the possible, but grabbers of the impossible.

    Precious In His Sight

    March 31, 2017

    My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
    Psalm 139:15

    Monozygotic (identical) twins result when one fertilized egg divides to form two separate but “identical” embryos. Fraternal (dizygotic) twins are as different as any two siblings. But even in the case of identical twins, they are not totally identical—different fingerprints being an example. Several hundred genetic differences can occur in identical twins that may eventually manifest themselves in slight, but noticeable, ways.

    In short, every human being is unique—including you! You are the only version of you God has ever made. The biblical writers understood and expressed this using pre-scientific language. David knew that he was “fearfully and wonderfully made” in his mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13-14). Job knew that God had “shaped [him] and made [him],” and “molded [him] like clay” (Job 10:8-9, NIV). That “hands-on” image evokes the idea conveyed in the children’s song: “Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight. . . .”

    Never doubt that you are unique and precious in God’s sight. His eye is always on what He has made.

    Man is a creature, because he is made by God. But he is a unique creature, because he is made like God.

    Words Of Power

    March 31, 2017

    The heart of the righteous studies how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil.
    Proverbs 15:28

    According to A Dictionary of American Proverbs, there are lots of variations to the rule, “Think before you speak.” One version says, “Think before you leap.” Another says, “Think more and talk less.” Another says, “Think twice and say nothing.” And yet another says, “You can think what you like, but don’t say it.”1

    However it’s put, this is biblical advice. It’s easy to open our mouths and let the words fly. We’re living in a day when people talk without using the filters of wisdom. But wise people study how to answer. One of the best ways of doing this is to pray before speaking. This is what Nehemiah did. “Then the king said to me, ‘What do you request?’ So I prayed to the God of heaven. And I said to the king…” (Nehemiah 2:4-5).

    Every child of God can develop a reputation for giving good advice. We can be people to whom others come for counsel. By God’s grace, we can be respected for our quiet wisdom. But only if we learn to think—and to pray—before we speak.

    Think before you speak, but don’t speak all that you think.
    An old American proverb

    True Self Worth

    March 30, 2017

    For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.
    Isaiah 53:2

    If, you had lived in first-century Israel and crossed paths with Jesus in a market (before He became well known), you would not have given Him a second glance. Outwardly, there was little or nothing about Jesus’ external appearance that would have commended Him (Isaiah 53:2).

     

    That wasn’t true of all of Israel’s kings.

    First Samuel 16:18 says that David, son of Jesse of Bethlehem, was a “fine-looking man” (NIV). The Hebrew word for “fine-looking” is the same word translated “beauty” when describing what Jesus the Messiah lacked in Isaiah 53:2. David was fine-looking, but Jesus, apparently, was not. That’s a comfort, because it indicates that externalities are not the point. You can be beautiful, handsome, or plain in the world’s sight; and God can use you all the same. Why? Because it is Christ in us that matters (Galatians 2:20).

    Our self-worth comes from how we reflect Christ, not how we are reflected in the mirror. Our appearance should enhance the image of Christ as an appropriate frame enhances a priceless painting.

     No man is qualified to be a disciple of Christ, until he has been divested of self.
    John Calvin
