TEMPTATION PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, January 13 2019 00:00

“So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.”  Genesis 3:6 (ESV)

So when the woman saw...

Temptation often comes to us in the guise of expectation.  We see, we observe, we investigate – and all the while we build kingdoms in our minds.  The woman saw and became delighted – but not only by the fruit’s outward comeliness, but also for the beautiful possibilities that awaited... just by tasting.

Our neurosis is the conjured worlds, the possible paths, created by simply plucking the forbidden fruit (in whatever form it may take).  The expectation of temptation always appears as undiscovered treasure.

Temptation’s appearance creates a rush of possibilities that begs exploration.  This then is often followed by an inward negotiation – reasoning within oneself the possible benefits of acting upon the obsession.  In the woman’s case, she desired the byproduct of wisdom.

Is it possible for sin to create a deeper walk or understanding of God and His creation?  (The answer here in Genesis is... NO!)

The woman’s self-negotiation lead her so much further away from her desired goal than she could have dreamed.  The neurosis became a total psychosis – a complete break from God’s reality.

Our expectations, when centered on self and sin, become destructive.  But (and this is the gospel) when centered on God... His will, His way, His Savior... then they reflect a much deeper reality than we ever knew existed.

Look!  Reach out and pluck the fruit of obedience.  Just imagine where it might lead!

SHALOM PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, December 23 2018 00:00

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.”  Numbers 6:24-26 ESV

Shalom has a deep rich meaning, especially when delivered directly from the heart of God.

In this word God extends His fullness of hope, joy, contentment, and rest. Within His shalom, God expresses His amazing love that transcends all other expressions of affection.

God’s full peace was poured out upon us the night our Christ was born –  Jesus!  He is the power found in peace, the perfection within divine peace.  He is all of this because He is the Creator and Ruler of peace . . . the “Prince of Peace”!

He offers all this – He offers Himself, to you – today!

Shalom!

RESOLVED PDF Print E-mail

I am RESOLVED!

What thoughts does that phrase conjure up within your mind and heart?

As you’re well aware, resolve means to declare, to make a firm unmovable decision.  It’s like saying, “I have decided and nothing can derail me.”  They are words that become chiseled in stone... stamped in steel... meant to be acted upon... made to last!  When one resolves to do something, or to become something, then that promise to oneself becomes a foundational statement that helps define that person!

Who are you?

Are you one who has resolved to love God above all else?

Are you now determined to live according to His word, His will, His way?

In that moment of belief when God the Holy Spirit enters, He ushers in with Himself an insatiable desire for holiness... that when pursed, gives the new believer a continuous voracious appetite for more – more of Him!

As you travel through this new year, may you first know yourself... then, resolve to dig deeper, to press in harder, becoming more “in Christ” than you ever imagined possible.

I pray that each of us experience a growth spurt in this coming year!

Happy New Year!!!

BE STILL PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, December 16 2018 00:00

Joy, true joy, can be so very elusive at times.  Momentary happiness, immediate gratification, the proverbial band-aids of life, seem to be the elixir of the masses.  “Just help me get through this moment!” is the mantra for many today.

But, it’s not just that many are looking for distractions – so that the “inevitables” of life can be ignored for as long as possible.  No, it’s that all too often life in our culture becomes categorized as a series of entertainment events, rather than a fluid motion of devotion.  The thought that a moment only carries significance if it manages to trip the ole adrenaline pump on high and deliver some mad rush (like shopping on Christmas Eve!) has become the norm for many.

May I suggest another way?

Joy, deep, abiding joy, can be discovered within a passionate search for God’s divine precepts, His powerful presence, and His life-path for you to follow.  The psalmist teaches:

“Be still, and know that I am God.  I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10 ESV

This means to . . . stop, listen, learn God’s way, His truth and His rich life which deliver great Joy!  Oh my . . . but Jesus says, “few there will be that find it.”  This God-search, this joy-safari, can only be accomplished by “being still”!

Perhaps you can begin your search today!
