As You Go, Aim at Changing The World

As you attend weekend services this week, and you reflect on the risen Christ, perhaps you will face a similar crossroad in your faith like the disciples faced when they met with Jesus for the first time after His resurrection. Some of them were challenged in their faith and withdrew, while the others freely worshipped the risen Lord. Sounds a lot like our congregations today, but let me encourage you to do a personal evaluation as we meditate today.

SCRIPTURE FROM: Matthew 28:16-20
TRANSLATION: Amplified Bible (AMP)

BIBLE TEXT: 16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. 17 And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted [that it was really He]. 18 Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations [help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words], baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion], even to the end of the age.”

APPLICATION: Some will read today’s Scripture and will respond like Peter did when the soldiers came to arrest Jesus. Peter assured Jesus that he would always stand firm in his faith, but sure to the prediction by Jesus, he quickly cowered and even denounced ever knowing Jesus. When Jesus met the eleven disciples after His resurrection, there were a few other Peter’s and Thomas’ in the group, for they stood at a distance in disbelief. For those who worshipped Jesus, no doubt they recalled Him saying that He would overcome death and the grave. No doubt His cryptic messages about rebuilding the temple in 3 days, started to make a lot more sense to the disciples, and in awe they worshipped the Master knowing that God ordained it for this whole event to take place just as it did. For us, we have the benefit of reading the Scriptures and, under the inspiration and wisdom of the Holy Spirit, have supporting evidence that our Lord is alive, and reigns forevermore! But let’s take a moment to reflect on The Great Commission given by Jesus to His disciples, for this remains as our commission today as well. After celebrating the risen Christ, Jesus gave His disciples their marching orders. All over the world Christians celebrated the risen Christ last Sunday (Easter). I believe it is fitting that God planned for us to study this Scripture this week, because He has our marching orders laid out for us also. He knew that after the ‘high’ of celebrating Easter, we would need to know what we should follow that with. In taking a hint from the Great Commission, I believe Jesus is once again saying to us: the world is still badly in need of the Savior, and you have locked inside of you, the answer to the world’s dilemma. Wherever you go, and whenever you go, tell people about the One who died and rose again so that you might enjoy the everlasting hope of eternity in heaven for ever and for ever with the King of all kings and Lord of all lords. Teach them to observe everything that God has passed on to you through His Holy Word. Win them to the Lord, so that they too might have that everlasting hope that you enjoy. Know that just as Jesus rose from the dead, in affirmation to all that He told you, so will He also be with you wherever you go and in every word that you share of Him, for He also promised that He would do that. Some glorious day, and I believe that will be much sooner than any of us might think, Jesus will return, just like He did after His resurrection, but this time He will take His children home to glory to be with He and the Father. Let’s all be ready to worship Him fellow Christians, just as the believing disciples did!

BLESSING(S) NOTED: Share the Good News of our risen Lord, knowing that Jesus will be with us in everything we do for His kingdom’s sake!

PRAYER: Lord, thank You for giving us hope, especially in a world where there seems to be no hope. We want to be just like the disciples who trusted in You and believed exactly what You taught them. Please continue to impress upon us the need for our family, friends, and those we come into contact with, to know You in a personal way. May we be ready to obey Your command to ‘GO’, and as we are going – tell, baptize and teach, so that the world might believe, know and accept You as Lord. AMEN!

Our Assignment

Ever notice how popular Sunday morning church service is, compared to Sunday evening discipleship hour, or Wednesday evening prayer service, or perhaps men/women Bible Study? Based on this comparison, we might seriously ponder how much of the Gospel (or how little) we take with us in our work places, or our social events, etc. after Sunday is over. But we have a huge assignment form Jesus in today’s Scripture, so meditate with me on His commands.

DATE WRITTEN: Wednesday, 2021-04-22
WRITTEN AT: Okeechobee, FL

BIBLE REFERENCE: Matthew 28:18-20
TRANSLATION: The Passion Translation (TPT)

BIBLE TEXT: 18 Then Jesus came close to them and said, “All authority of the universe has been given to me. 19 Now wherever you go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 20 And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.”

OBSERVATION: Ever notice how popular Sunday morning church service is, compared to Sunday evening discipleship hour, or Wednesday evening prayer service, or perhaps men/women Bible Study? Based on this comparison, we might seriously ponder how much of the Gospel (or how little) we take with us in our work places, or our social events, etc. after Sunday is over. But we have a huge assignment form Jesus in today’s Scripture, so meditate with me on His commands.

APPLICATION: Jesus’ disciples had just encountered the risen Lord for the first time after His crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection. While they tried to celebrate the risen Lord, some were still in a state of shock and disbelief. Surprised, because you thought these were Jesus’ dedicated followers who learned first-hand from Him and saw His many miracles? I know, but don’t think for a moment that they were weaker than you and I, or filled with doubt any more than we are. Notice how Jesus didn’t nurse their feelings by trying to help them overcome their doubt and fear, but instead He immediately told them about their next, and ongoing assignment. Now I believe that this message was also for Jesus’ disciples of today also – my fellow believers and I. So I believe it is important that we understand the command, so that we too can be obedient servants:
-> Go – In other words, as you go, or everywhere you go, do what I am about to tell you. Since retiring, I have been privileged to travel a bit, and I find it extraordinarily rewarding how people are no different in cities considered below poverty level, or cities with the most wealthy. Many still need the Lord, but it is so, so comforting to fellowship with those who know the Savior as you do;
-> Make disciples – based on what I just said above, I am commissioned to not merely look the other way and expect pastors to evangelize those in their city who need the Lord, but I am also expected to make disciples there, or preach the Gospel there, or minister to the unsaved there, regardless of their national origin, color or gender;
-> Baptize the disciples – Don’t just see them accept Jesus as their Savior, but lead them to be baptized, as evidence to their family and friends that they have arisen in newness of life through the power of the triune God;
-> Teach them – Share with the new believers all that God has taught you through His Word. Teach them how to study the Word so that they may know what God expects of them. Oh, you’re not a teacher? No problem, just pretend that you are a beggar helping another beggar to find food. You are not expected to share what the preacher said in yesterday’s sermon, you are commissioned to tell your story of how Jesus saved you and watches over you every day until He returns to take you home to glory!
So it is very obvious that God never intended for us to soak and sour in His goodness, but to share His amazing goodness with everyone that we come into contact with. Friends, how will they know that change is necessary unless, through God’s grace, you share the love of Christ with them, and the assignment He has given to us? Be a faithful servant and obey the commands of our Lord.

PRAYER: Thank You Father for showing us Your love, teaching us Your Word and not just leaving us where we are, but showing us the importance of passing along what we have experienced and learned from You, so that the unsaved too might surrender to Your perfect will for their lives. Please touch the heart of every believer that reads this devotional, and use Your Word to speak miraculously into their lives. Please touch us with Your grace, Your power, Your wisdom, and Your encouragement to share every day what You have poured into our lives. May You be glorified today because of our obedience, followed only by the changed lives of those who accept You as Lord. AMEN!

Explain To Your Children Why You Celebrate

Twice in this chapter it is reiterated that the Israelites are to explain to their children why they are celebrating their exodus from Egypt, so I consider that pretty important. While most non-Jews do not celebrate this annual event, there are still some religious celebrations that many of us take part in. How well are you doing in explaining why you are celebrating, or perhaps why you are not? Unfortunately if you don’t share this with your children, someone else will, and it may not explain why or how you personally celebrate!

DATE WRITTEN: Tuesday, 2021-03-22
WRITTEN AT: Okeechobee, FL

BIBLE REFERENCE: Exodus 13:8-9
TRANSLATION: Living Bible (TLB)

BIBLE TEXT: “During those celebration days each year you must explain to your children why you are celebrating—it is a celebration of what the Lord did for you when you left Egypt. This annual memorial week will brand you as his own unique people, just as though he had branded his mark of ownership upon your hands or your forehead.

OBSERVATION: Twice in this chapter it is reiterated that the Israelites are to explain to their children why they are celebrating their exodus from Egypt, so I consider that pretty important. While most non-Jews do not celebrate this annual event, there are still some religious celebrations that many of us take part in. How well are you doing in explaining why you are celebrating, or perhaps why you are not? Unfortunately if you don’t share this with your children, someone else will, and it may not explain why or how you personally celebrate!

APPLICATION: Most readers will probably not celebrate the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt during this March/April timeframe. However, Easter is a pretty popular celebration on the Christian calendar, and most of you probably have been invited to Easter Egg hunts, or to a Sunrise service, or even a celebration of new life where the resurrection of our Lord is celebrated. Children are really curious, so they will draw their own conclusions as to why you took them to church this Easter, or perhaps why was there a Egg hunt at this time and no other time of the year. What if you sat your child down and explained why you are planning to attend the events at your church this Easter? Might it not help solidify in them that you are a believer in Jesus Christ, and that you actually believe in the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord? Yes, I know the preacher will explain why Easter is so important, and I know that Sunday School teachers do an extraordinary job of show-‘n-tell with your kids about the risen Lord, but imagine the impact your story would have in your children? Try telling it like God told the Israelites to tell their story: Tell what the Lord did for you when….. Don’t you know that months later that child could be telling their friends what their dad told them about Easter, vs what they are hearing the kids discuss about Easter? Friends, Easter is not a fairy tale for those who believe in Jesus Christ. When you tell others what Easter means to you personally, it will carry a strong sense of personal appreciation to what was done at Calvary for even you. It will reflect the joy that you feel inside from knowing that Jesus arose and stands ready to accept you into His glorious heaven. I would never underestimate the power of preaching from our church pulpits, but I do believe that there is nothing greater than a child knowing where their parents stand on matters usually spoken from our pulpits. Most children will feel the love of their parents for them, but if they are considering accepting Jesus as Lord, the impact of knowing that their parents also know Jesus personally, is immeasurable. Perhaps God blessed you with children of your own. God wanted the Israelites to teach their children the reason why, and the importance of, celebrating their exodus from Egypt. I strongly believe that God also wants us to share with our kids the importance of our Christian celebrations today. Try doing your part dear friend, with God’s help. Let them know that this same Jesus that they are learning about is of key importance to you also!

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for the child You graciously placed in my life. May I always be obedient to Your instructions, and to Your commands. For her to know how I personally feel about our Christian holidays is way more important than her hearing it from a preacher or a friend. The difference is very personal, and I believe that it draws a smile to her in knowing that I am committed to You and very much called by You to share Your Word and Your love with others. Please open the hearts of my audience to Your Word, precious Lord. May their hearts overflow with love and appreciation for the One who gave it all so that they may spend life eternally with the God of this universe. AMEN!

Well Worth Our Effort

Monday, 2016-12-26

Scripture

Bible Reference: 1 Corinthians 15:58

Bible Text:  58  Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Bible Translation: Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

My Take

I believe that especially at this time of the year we tend to feel so exhausted and may even cause ourselves to doubt whether, in light of everything we did at Christmas, was it really worth it all. I heard that studies show that the day that most pastors resign their churches is Monday, and I believe that this may be due to the fact that Satan ‘beats them up’ so badly and causes them to question themselves about the job they did the previous day. Paul tried to encourage the Corinthian church by reminding them of the truth about the resurrection, and about the glorious day that will be when they see the face of the Savior! Friends, this same assurance is promised to those of us who have surrendered our lives to Jesus and invited Him into our hearts! So to reiterate the thoughts of Paul in these verses today, may I remind you that in light of what God has promised to us, we should be:

  • Steadfast – Deeply rooted and built up in Christ. Established in the faith and know what we believe, sufficient that we can freely share our faith with others;
  • Immovable – Confident in our faith and not vulnerable towards evil coming between us and our Lord, while still gaining strength and assurance in remembering that nothing will separate us from the love of God!
  • Excelling – Isn’t it interesting how much time we put into our jobs, and how easily we accept going long distances to conferences or attending educational opportunities that will help sharpen our work-related skills? However, when it comes to the work of the Lord we find excuse after excuse why we can’t go to similar events that may sharpen our ministry related skills? Isn’t it interesting how we are prepared to work long hours, and even weekends, if necessary, to get our jobs done in perfect condition, yet we ‘slap together’ a lesson or a sermon as we rush into the hours right before delivery to our classes or congregations? Paul encourages us to always excel in our work for the Lord, especially knowing that our effort will not be in vain.

Friends, Galatians 6:8-10 says: …. the one who sows to his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit. 9  So we must not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up. 10  Therefore, as we have opportunity, we must work for the good of all, especially for those who belong to the household of faith. I interpret this as a promise that we will be rewarded for all that we do for the Lord, and I especially believe this will be the case when we’ve put our all into the effort. Remember, all that’s done for Jesus will last!

Prayer

Father, there was nothing about our salvation that You took lightly, for You gave of Your very best, so that we might have the very best when we past from this world. I therefore question myself as to whether there is anything that I can do to compare with all that You have done for me? Lord, I pray that You will remind us of the gifts that You have blessed us with. There’s an awesome day coming, and we are anxious to see You, Lord Jesus! However, while here on this earth, please touch us each and every day with a strong desire to do our very best to spread the good news, and I firmly believe that unless we do that from the heart, our efforts will be in vain. Please place a passion in us to serve You better by ministering to our fellow man each and every day. AMEN!

Because He is coming To Rule as King

May I encourage you to get your spiritual ‘Nuggets’ to start your day off right? Pretty amazing that our awesome God would consider feeding even us with His Word! May I encourage you to read the whole devotional, and look for a blessing, friend!………

Today’s Bible Reference: 2 Timothy 4:1–5
Today’s Bible Text: In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and because he is coming to rule as King, I solemnly urge you to preach the message, to insist upon proclaiming it (whether the time is right or not), to convince, reproach, and encourage, as you teach with all patience. The time will come when people will not listen to sound doctrine, but will follow their own desires and will collect for themselves more and more teachers who will tell them what they are itching to hear. They will turn away from listening to the truth and give their attention to legends. But you must keep control of yourself in all circumstances; endure suffering, do the work of a preacher of the Good News, and perform your whole duty as a servant of God.
The Bible Translation: The Good News Translation (GNT)

My Take Away: Paul tried very hard to qualify to Timothy why he was giving him certain instructions. I believe that God directed this to be placed in His Word for us, because He wants us to know that in the light of all the excuses we might give for not doing something that He orders, we had best remember that one day soon He will come to rule again as King and we will be accountable  to Him for our decisions and our actions. We are urged to share the faith that comes from trusting in God – to share our salvation experience; to seek God’s face and direction in all decisions that we make; to challenge family and friends about their faith in Christ; to correct folk in love when we see them out of line with God’s instructions. I love the way that this translation says “and because Jesus is coming to rule as King” – because this encourages me to have an even deeper desire to share my faith, and to busy myself with the work of the Lord. However, less we miss a very important point, Paul encourages us to also keep control of ourselves in all circumstances. This means that we should not dare correct, rebuke or witness to another, if our lives are out of tune with God’s will for us. In another scripture, we are encouraged to remove the plank from our own eye, before challenging a Brother to consider the speck in his eye. Friends, we are reminded that in the last days we will see people looking for special traits in their teachers – they specifically want ones who will tickle their ears with things that are appealing to them. Could this possibly  be because of the hypocrisy of the teachers of the gospel? Paul has shown us that we have a responsibility to the Master, and this should be in spite of all the challenges that Satan will send our way to discourage us. May I encourage you to take the challenge with all sincerity and because of the love of Jesus for you? For even while you were still a sinner, Jesus gave up His life for you so that you might overcome sin and live eternally in glory with Him! Because He is coming soon to rule as King, let us today be found faithful and true!

Prayer: Father, I believe that it is because of the struggles You see us having, that You bring these experiences to light as we read Your Word. For the experiences of Paul is very similar to those that we face today. Pastors are becoming very discouraged, and laity is questioning whether it is worth the effort to keep on in our witness for You. Please work a miracle in the lives of Your dedicated church pastors Lord, may they find peace in doing the will of God in everything they attempt. Lord, please protect our pastors from the evil of this world. Please encourage Christians everywhere to share Your love and the teaching of Your Word with all they come into contact with, and may their attempts be fruitful because of the condition of their relationship with You. People need the Lord! May each believer play a key role is helping them find You dear Lord. AMEN!

Teach With Your Life

The Holy Bible   (The Message – 1 Timothy 4:11-14):     Get the word out. Teach all these things. And don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity. Stay at your post reading Scripture, giving counsel, teaching. And that special gift of ministry you were given when the leaders of the church laid hands on you and prayed—keep that dusted off and in use.

Thoughts:   Paul instructed Timothy on things to be leery of. I believe that God ordered that these instructions be included in His Message to us because they equally apply to us. In these verses, I heard God saying:

  • We have a responsibility to get the word out – the Word of God, The witness of all that He has done in our lives;
  • We are cautioned that people might be prejudiced against us – it might be age, it might be color, it might be gender, or anything else that they feel might serve to block us from imposing, or sharing our message with them;
  • We must be careful to also minister to believers – Paul knew that the primary way to get through to believers would be to teach them through our actions, our words, our demeanor, our love, our faith, our integrity – just our straight out attitude and character. If Jesus is not shining through us in our outward life actions, does He truly reside in our heart?
  • Keep on keeping on – a message I’ve heard consistently over the past few months. Paul is also advising that we stay at our posts, doing what God instructs us, in spite of what the people around us may do to deflect or reject us;
  • We have a special gift – share it! This can be from a talent standpoint, or simply from a standpoint of having the gift of God’s Son inside of us and a deep desire to share Him with others;
  • Keep our gift dusted off – this reminds me that I am to stay in the Word, attend church services and training, and do my very best to be current in my relationship and experiences with the Lord. Sharing something with someone that happened to you over 10 years ago gives the impression that your God must be dead. Why hasn’t He been active in your life experiences this week? Also, witnessing about something that has occurred in your life, versus something that happened in a friend’s life, is way more powerful. So be attuned to all that God is doing for you personally.

Prayer:   Thank You Lord for the plan You had for Timothy; the plan You had for Paul to encourage and minister to Timothy; and the plan You have for my life and the lives of my readers. Thankfully You are a ‘personal’ God who loves us individually in unconditional ways. You chose us to be Your children; Your followers; Your messengers; because we have family, friends and loved ones that will listen to us and watch our very actions. Lord, may they see Jesus very evident in our life, our word, our demeanor, our love, our faith and in our integrity. In fact, may the love of God be so evident in us that others would have a desire to also have Him become a part of their lives. Just as Timothy went on to win the lost to You, may You also see results from our very existence here on this earth and particularly from our personal witness. This is my desire today Lord, and I ask this in the precious name of Jesus, my King, now and throughout eternity, AMEN!
