“For Better or For Worse”

The stories of how most of the disciples died is not told to us. The few that are gruesome. The legends of some of the others are even worse.

In God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?

Psalm 56:11

The fact is, following Jesus caries a high price.

Being the Bride of Christ, in this life, will often be “for the worse.”

The statement, “what can man do to me?” can be answered with “plenty!”

Yet, we are Called to follow anyway; and the result will be well worth it!

That’s His faithful promise!


“Where Do You Want to Eat?”

Most of us are aware of the feeding of the 5,000.

They all ate and were satisfied.

Mark 6:42

But we often forget that this happened after an already very long day. Jesus and the disciples were tired and needed to get away, but the people followed them and Jesus had compassion on them. So He fed them; first and foremost with the Word through His teaching, then through bread and fish.

The second miracle is the one we remember, but in its doing gave evidence to the true miracle of Him and the Word!

The question is: what are you hungry for? Food that perishes or the Bread of Life Himself?

By all means, decide where you are going to eat after worship, but know that you have been fed with the Word here and now!


“This Old House”

Restoring an old house can be fraught with problems.

Show us Your steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us Your salvation.

Psalm 85:7

Often it becomes a “money pit.” Sometimes you have to gut the house down to the studs. Sometimes even to the very foundation!

Our sins make us dilapidated crumbling (even if we don’t know it).

Our restoration must start with prayer and confession.

Often it means our attitudes and habits must be torn down to the studs – or even our very foundation!

May that Foundation be Jesus!

In Him only are we restored! In Him only are we saved! In Him only is our everything!

Come, Lord Jesus!


Independence Day

We can be very myopic in our view of the world and our culture.

Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

2 Corinthians 6:2b

We tend to not look beyond it and to judge matters according to it.

In fact, often we tend to judge God and His Word in light of culture, politics, or parties instead of the proper way around!

How perverse! How ridiculous! How idolatrous!

On this day when we celebrate the independence of our nation, let us not forget to celebrate the true, eternal, material freedom we have in Jesus!


“Loss Leader”

Some feel that when you become a Christian, everything becomes easy. Everything is happy. Everything is prosperous.

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, that my glory may sing Your praise and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever!

Psalm 30:11-12

That is far from reality!

But the reality extends far further than the persistence of suffering for Christians. It is rooted in the One who sees us through them. Who supersedes them. Who has overcome them! Entrenched is the reality that such struggles are finite.

“Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” Psalm 30:5b
