Thursday, 7/2/20 – Discipleship – The Bible

The Bible

20200701_091945This past Thursday, June 24 Christian actor Denzel Washington was interviewed on Instagram Live by Brooklyn Pastor A.R Bernard of Christian Cultural Center.

“After all is said and done,” Denzel concluded, “I want to be in that number! I just want to be in that number when the saints go marching in. I want more than anything else in my life to be in that number.”

As the two chatted, each from their separate locations, they mentioned the impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on all the citizens of the planet. How physical distancing and self-isolation have forced humanity — all of humanity — to consider their need for God. Though some just became all the more frantic, many paused to, as scripture has long enjoined, “Be still, and know that I am God” (Ps. 46:10).

In the interview Denzel testified to the meaninglessness of temporal accomplishments, worldly wealth and fleeting fame. What really matters is our relationship with God and the legacy of faith which we leave. Nothing temporal will go with us into eternity.

The Word of God is also eternal. By this I obviously do not mean our physical Bibles, but the eternal Word of God which is “forever… settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89).

Isaiah pronounced “The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8). David sang “Every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting.” (Psalm 119:160). In all three of the synoptic gospels Jesus taught “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.” (Matt. 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33). Peter echoed “But the word of the Lord endures forever.” (1 Peter 1:25).

The spoken Word of God was implemental in creation: “And God said…” (Gen. 1:3, 6, 9, 14, 20, 24), and It was the stated Word of God that Satan challenged: “Did God really say…” (Gen. 3:1). It is the Word of God that was made flesh in Christ and walked among us:

The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14).

It is the Word of God that will keep us from sin:

I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” (Ps. 119:11). (See also Matt. 4:1-11)

And it is the Word of God to which you can cling is these days of turbulence.

For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to Whom we must give account.” (Heb. 4:12-13).

In the back of one of our discipleship resource books there are lists of various scriptures to help the believer stay focussed amid a variety of trials. Similar resources exist online and in scripture tracts and in many Study Bibles. The Word of God is foundational. Get to know it, and Him, well, as Paul urged young Timothy,

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” (2 Tim. 2:15).

Submit to the Word’s incisive blade, rest on its promises, be nourished by its life-giving bread and grow strong as you move from its milk to its meat.

Thursday, 6/25/20 – Discipleship – Priorities

Word of God vs Personal Behaviour

bible blur book christian

I was listening to a message by Pastor Michael Brown the other day and was intrigued by his statement that we tend to interpret the Word of God through our behaviour rather than the other way around. If, for example, we are engaged in some activity contrary to the clear teaching of scripture (i.e. sin) we use rather clever mental gymnastics to interpret the Word of God in a way to justify our sinful behaviour.

Let’s say a believer holds a sinful resentment in his heart against another believer who has in some way wronged him. Rather than take to heart the command to not let a root of bitterness grow within us, the command to not give the devil a foothold, the commands to foster unity, to be a peacemaker, to pray for those who mistreat us, and many other clear commands, the erring believer will accept his or her resentment as valid and seek to justify it by misusing scriptures, perhaps pointing to passages on shunning the unrepentant brother, or framing the resentment as righteous indignation.

notes on board

But the mature a believer will understand that the clear truth of the Word of God has first priority. Instead of interpreting scripture through one’s behaviour the maturing believer will interpret his or her behaviour through the Word of God. He will listen to and happily accept the convicting voice of the Holy Spirit and adjust his behaviour accordingly.

A believer with proper priorities will live by the Lord’s injunction “Seek first His kingdom and his righteousness” (Matt. 6:33). Not only because he knows it to be the right thing to do, but also because it is his heart’s greatest desire.

Thursday, 6/18/20 – Discipleship – Freedom

Freedom Indeed!

There is no worse bondage than guilt, no greater freedom than forgiveness.

In saying He came to set men free Christ did not merely announce “He whom the Son sets free, will be free.” He said, “He whom the Son sets free, will be free indeed.” (John 8:36).

20200617_174326Imagine it, if it is not already yours: PeacePeace with God! Such a gripping thought! So much so that Billy Graham’s 1953 Bestseller by that title sold 2 million copies and is still selling today.

People are troubled. They do not have Peace with God and either seek it desperately or try to bury the angst with anything at hand: alcohol, sex, drugs, materialism,

fame, wealth or wild living. Some try to be their own saviour, perhaps by self punishment in hope of gaining a sort of divine atonement by asceticism, self-mutilation, starvation, cutting, or self-flagellation. Or perhaps by an abundance of good-deeds or contributions of money to the church.

None of these bring Peace with God.

Tormented, some choose what they believe to be the final exit, suicide, thinking it will bring nonexistence which they deem preferable to their pain. But neither will death bring the sought for relief for the pain is not resident in this world, but in the soul of the individual which shall live forever. Guilt can be taken with you; it’s only remedy is Christ.

Because guilt is such a constraining bondage we assume our deliverance must exact a very costly price. And we are correct. It us a price none of us can pay. It requires a holy sacrifice. The pure for the impure. The Innocent for the guilty. None Such is to be found on this earth. But all praise to Christ such a One exists in heaven. It is, always has been, and ever will be Christ.

Christ alone brings to us the possibility of freedom. Not only freedom from guilt, but freedom to choose rightly by the new nature He places within us. Freedom to be transformed into His likeness. Freedom to choose the right and shun evil.

He whom the Son sets free, will be free and more.
He whom the Son sets free, will be free indeed.

Thursday, 6/11/20 – Discipleship – Assurance: Unpardonable sin!

Assurance: Unpardonable sin!

man in black shirt and gray denim pants sitting on gray padded bench

One of the devil’s temptations whispered to many a new Christian is the temptation to believe they have committed “the unpardonable sin,” and thus they are beyond God’s saving grace. Doomed to be damned.

Perhaps they have read passages where Jesus warns of this sin; there are two:

“And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.” (Matt. 12:31-32).

“’Truly I tell you, people can be forgiven all their sins and every slander they utter, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.’ He said this because they were saying, ‘He has an impure spirit.’” (Mark 3:28-30).

woman in gray tank top looking frightened

The Pharisees had just accused Jesus of casting out demons by Beelzebul, the prince of demons. In other words they were saying that Jesus’ power to do miracles came not from God but from the devil. They were refusing to accept the Holy Spirit’s witness as to Who Jesus was and to bow to Him as Lord.

When a person does this they turn away from the convicting voice of the Holy Spirit… they choose not to hear His call, consequently they become unable to respond to it. Of this sin Billy Graham says,

“While there is an unforgivable sin, it is not one that a true believer in Jesus Christ can commit… if we have received Jesus as our Savior and Lord, we have not blasphemed the Holy Spirit; we have accepted His witness. …the unpardonable sin is not some particularly grievous sin committed by a Christian before or after accepting Christ, nor is it thinking or saying something terrible about the Holy Spirit. Rather, it is deliberately resisting the Holy Spirit’s witness and invitation to turn to Jesus until death ends all opportunity.” – Billy Graham

In short, as long as you want Christ as Lord and Saviour you will be able to give yourself to Him. But persistent refusal to respond to His convicting Voice can harden your heart till you no longer hear Him, no longer seek Him. In short, you do not want Him — like the Pharisees.

In Hebrews we read,

“If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.” (Heb. 10:26-27).

This is why scripture pleads “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts…” (Heb. 3:8).

blue purple red and yellow heart printed poster

But the believer whose heart is not hardened but tender, touched by the love and grace of Christ, who desires God and seeks more of Him, this person may rest assured in Christ knowing the temper’s lie that they have committed the unpardonable sin is just that – a lie.

Thursday, 6/4/20 – Discipleship – Christ’s Return (& COVID-19)

Soon Return of Christ (& COVID-19)

bible book business christian

This is such an easy association to make: Scripture itemizes many precursors to Christ’s return and pestilence such as COVID-19 are among them (Luke 21:11). But I don’t think many of you need to be educated to that fact. I’ve spoken in past weeks to our call at this time to rest in Christ, to “look up, and lift up your heads” — to rejoice (Luke 21:28) as we see these things unfolding.

What I wish to share with you today, and a thought that has been upon my heart many weeks now, is this: we must all the more set our hearts and minds on things above. In fact, scripture directs us to do that very thing, not only because Christ may presently return, but simply because we are trusting in Him.

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.” (Col. 3:1-3).

woman in a red dress looking at the sunset

Life in Christ ought naturally, er, new-nature-ally, be lived from this perspective, the perspective of our true and new homeland, or perhaps rather since coming to Christ our newly rediscovered motherland. God created us for Himself and we find our fulfillment only in Him. Heaven is our home. Here we are as Peter writes, “strangers and pilgrims,” “sojourners,” or as one translation puts it “foreigners and exiles.” (1 Pet. 2:11-12). Essentially we are nomads… a people just passing through, visitors on our way to our true home.

The book of Hebrews states it well: “…foreigners and strangers on earth”… a people who are “looking for a country of their own… a better country—a heavenly one.” (Heb. 11:13-16). But while we are here we are also representatives, “Christ’s ambassadors,” Paul says (2 Cor. 5:20-21). We are to tell this world the gospel… they too can turn and come with us!

woman in the back of a van looking at mountains

The fact of Christ’s imminent return and the kingdom awaiting His faithful ought to motivate and inspire our hearts during this time of global turmoil. Believers know what is going on. God is shaking this earth, but not His own. Though He may rattle some yet-clung-to sins from us, purging and purifying us through trial and conviction, we stand upon the Rock. That Rock is Christ and is the only unshakable ground.

Believers must keep that heaven-bound focus, we must  steadily see Christ as Stephen did, though all around him was his destruction.

“But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. ‘Look,’ he said, ‘I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.’” (Acts 7:55-56).

His face, they say, was like that of an angel (6:15).

God’s Will (& COVID-19)

gray glass panel

On “Ideas” (CBC Radio) this morning Euclidian geometry is being questioned. The example is given how the ”rules” of a triangle may not be “rules” at all but merely one truth among many. The rules of Euclid’s triangle were based upon a triangle drawn on a flat surface, but, the idea continues, suppose you draw a triangle on a round surface, like a balloon, well then the rules of Euclid’s triangle do not apply; now there is a new “rule” of the triangle, an alternate truth!

woman writing formula on whiteboard

The devil, having fooled society into believing in multiple moral truths, now appears to be moving on to dupe us out of mathematical truth as well. But the facts of a triangle drawn on a flat surface are not disproven by the discovery of other facts of a triangle drawn on a round surface. Nor are the facts of a triangle set aside by someone’s belief in incorrect facts about a triangle drawn on a flat surface – just as the facts about a triangle drawn on a round surface do not change by believing incorrect facts about them.

3+4=7 and 3×4=12. These are both true. Neither annuls the other. But 3+4=6 or 3×4=13 are both false… no matter how many people may believe them to be true. Indeed, the whole world may be duped to think 3×4=13 but in the end the three piles of four items will always total twelve!

What is God’s Will? One thing for certain, it is God’s Will, not mine, not yours, not the collective opinion of any majority. It is God’s Will, and it remains the standard of all Truth.

If Covid-19 has taught this lost planet anything it has demonstrated that God is Sovereign, and that we had better return to taking Him into account if we wish to end up on the truth side of the equation—for it is a very serious equation indeed that we each must work through in our lifetime.

gray magnifying glass and eyeglasses on top of open book

FACT: God is Holy, He is Spirit, Eternal.
FACT: I am NOT Holy, My body is Temporal.
FACT: Unholy cannot dwell with Holy.
FACT: My body will die. My soul will not die.
FACT: Your body will die. Your soul will not die.

God has presented to us the only equation for salvation, unchanging since the foundation of the world:

“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).

I’m sorry if you think it sounds old, dusty, or boring. It is the truth essential for this lost humankind. It is earth and fire and water, sunshine and gravity. Remove any and you are gone!

Oh Earth, learn the lesson of Covid-19. It is time to come home to God.

Thursday, 5/21/20 – Discipleship – Evangelism (& COVID-19)

Evangelism (& COVID-19)

man handing a beer from the cooler

There is a difference between what it means to “pass it on” (see yesterday’s blog) and “pay it forward” ( a phrase popularized since the 2000 romantic drama film by the same name.) To “pass it on” is to have been given something from someone else and then to give that thing to another. The item was never yours, you received it freely, and it cost you nothing to give it to someone else.

photo of person handing card

To “pay it forward” means to have received some benefit, assimilated it fully, and then when an opportunity arises you give from your own consolidated resources a benefit of some kind to someone else. In short, someone does a gracious act to you and so you in turn do a gracious act to another. When you “pay it forward” you receive a thing or a service and make it your own, then later from your own resources sacrifice a thing or a service to someone else.

two boys sitting on bench wearing hats and long sleeved shirts

Passing it on” honors the original giver; “paying it forward” honors yourself. “Passing it on” is sharing; “paying it forward” is transaction.

It is really only possible to give grace out of your own experience of having received grace. The “beggar” who finds bread and shares it with another can accept no praise for having created the bread. No… He knows that in his own self he is still merely a beggar. It is like this with all God’s graces.

“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life…” (1 John 1:1…)

“…I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you…” (1 Cor. 11:23)

“…I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures…” (1 Cor. 15:3-4…)

Praise… the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God…” (2 Cor. 1:3-4).

Have you fretted during Covid-19 and found solace in Christ? Have you rested calmly through this crisis because your confidence is in Christ? Have you been thrust into financial need and found hope, strength, resources through Christ, His people, His Church? Have you lost loved ones or suffered personally because of the virus yet found comfort and encouragement in the Lord? “Pass it On.” When it comes to grace, we can only truly give what God has given to us.

Pass it On

Thursday, 5/14/20 – Discipleship – Fellowship (& COVID-19)

Fellowship (& COVID-19)

Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” (Gen. 2:7)

silhouette of person raising his hands

But it was not good yet! God made man a home, provided for his food, his drink. He gave man meaningful work and no doubt loved man very much – but still man was not good yet. What more could God add?

The answer was not in addition, rather it was in subtraction. Man was too complete.

So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.” (Gen. 2:21, 22).

affection afterglow backlit blur

First God made man incomplete. Then He made from that missing piece another creature like Himself, like the man, yet different. They both felt their incompleteness, and, says the scripture, “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.” (Gen. 2:24; Matt. 19:5; Eph. 5:31). Only after this did God say, it was good – in fact, He said “it was very good.” (Gen. 1:31).

We are made… deliberately… not to be complete in ourselves. Before God made woman He looked at Adam and said plainly, “It is not good for the man to be alone.” (Gen. 2:18). No animal or pet creature of any kind would do (v. 19-20). Man required relationship with his own species.

adventure backlit dawn dusk

And so “fellowship” was born from the beginning… God with man, man with woman, parents with children, and peer with peer. Solomon, the wisest of all our species, observed “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” (Prov. 27:17), and the psalmist sang “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1).

And so now, in physical distancing and self-isolation, it is not good to be alone. But again, the Christian truly is never alone. Christ is to the believer “a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” (Prov. 18:24). “our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1). Indeed, He is very near, as Paul cited the Cretan philosopher Epimenides: “…in him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

If it helps in remembering this I see no harm in reserving a living room chair for Him, putting out a place at the table for Him. Chatting with Him as you go about your chores…

This is not madness. You are not talking to yourself, but to God. Is this not “praying always” (Eph. 6:18), “without ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17) as scripture enjoins.

“I am with you always,” said Jesus, “to the very end of the age.” (Matt. 28:20). God… ever-present… in all the rooms of your home… and in all the room in your heart.

Thursday, 5/7/20 – Discipleship – Prayer (& COVID-19)

Prayer (& COVID-19)

alone calm faith light

What role does prayer have regarding end time evils prophecied to come upon the earth?

Very much indeed. We ought not think the hand of God cannot be influenced in as yet by us unexperienced events prophesied to occur. God and time are unique realities. God Who knows all time, knows also all prayers. We who know only the moments of time within our individual experience view prayers as past, present or future. But God knows them all, and, from our perspective, was, is, and will be moved by them.

In fact, Christ told us to pray.

standing man in blue dress shirt praying

Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath.” we read in Matthew 24:20, and in v. 22 “…for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.” Shortened no doubt from something previously intended, and why? Most likely because of the prayers of the faithful.

In Luke we are urged, “Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21:34-35, 36).

woman in a colorful knitted shirt and gray headwear

Peter also speaks to our obligation of end-times prayer: “The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.” (1 Peter 4:7 ).

The March 26, 2020 edition of Christianity Today carried an item entitled “20 Prayers to Pray During This Pandemic,” by Jen Pollock Michel. This serves as an excellent guide to our prayers amid the current COVID-19 crisis. I have condensed the items of this list here:

Pray…

1. For the sick and infected.
2. For our vulnerable populations.
3. For the young and the strong to use caution… to help.
4. For our governments’ wise allocation of the necessary resources.
5. For our scientific community seeking an antivirus.
6. For the media to provide up-to-date, accurate information.
7. For consumers of media to find the most helpful information and keep from anxiety and panic.
8. For those who feel isolated, anxious, and helpless.
9. For the homeless, unable to practice the protocols of physical distancing.
10. For travelers stranded in foreign countries.
11. For Christian missionaries throughout the world.
12. For workers facing layoffs and financial hardship.
13. For families with young children at home.
14. For working parents who can’t stay home but now require childcare.
15. For those with therapies or treatments that must now be postponed.
16. For business leaders making difficult decisions.
17. For pastors and church leaders.
18. For college and university students.
19. For Christians to pray, to give, to love, to serve, and to proclaim the gospel.
20. For frontline health care workers’ safety and health, knowledge re treatment and protocols, their clear-mindedness, peace of mind, compassion and supplies.

Lord, help us to be found faithful! In Jesus’s Name.

Thursday, 4/30/20 – Discipleship – The Bible (& COVID-19)

The Bible (& COVID-19)

Is it the end of the world?

woman in black long sleeve dress screaming

Many are panic-stricken these days and asking religious leaders to tell them what is happening… hoping against hope for words of hope… some message that will assure them of the return and continuance of life as they had so recently known it.

It’s rather like that brief nostalgia one might feel upon waking from a very good dream. The alarm sounds pulling you from some excellent adventure, some near discovery, some uncompleted mission, and you foggily realise the alarm is reality, the adventure was a dream. There are a few seconds of quasi-disappointment but as the head clears you soon realize conscious reality is preferable to unconscious fantasy.

Yes.

white ring bill alarm clock

Yes, it is the end of the world. It has been the end of this world since you arrived in it – at birth, and long before that. It has been the end of this world since that first rebellion of mankind (Gen. 2-3). All of human history since God has sounded His alarm. Each of us must answer its call. No one can “wake up” for someone else! And not one of us can continue sleeping for ever.

God has appointed a time. You – yes you – will at last stand before your Maker to give account (Heb. 9:27). “Life as you have so recently known it” is indeed the dream. The appointment ahead is the reality… the eternal reality.

We know all this by the revelation of God: in nature, in conscience, in history, in Christ and in the Word of God. And we know how to “wake up” by that same Word.

Peter writes,

“Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.
So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.” (2 Pet. 3:11-14).

grayscale photo of the crucifix

The gospel requires us to realize this truth. To acknowledge we are sinful, to know Christ is Lord and to believe in His pure death in our place… in your place… to turn away from evil, obey Him completely and give up your current temporal dream for the pure light of His Beam, His Path, His Love. Thus, one can march headlong into the end of the world — whenever it may come — for like all former saints we are “longing for a better country—a heavenly one.” (Heb. 11:16).

Fear not, what He begins in His children He will complete (Phil. 1:6), and it is His great pleasure to receive His own into His soon appearing kingdom (Luke 12:32).
