26 Intercessors, 26 Angels

A missionary on furlough told this true story while visiting his home
church in Michigan:

“While serving at a small field hospital in Africa, every two weeks I travelled by bicycle through the jungle to a nearby city for supplies. This was a journey of two days and required camping overnight at the halfway point. On one of these journeys, I arrived in the city where I planned to collect money from a bank, purchase medicine and supplies, and then begin my two-day journey back to the field hospital.

Upon arrival in the city, I observed two men fighting, one of whom had been seriously injured. I treated him for his injuries and at the same time talked to him about the Lord Jesus Christ. I then travelled two days, camping overnight, and arrived home without incident.

Two weeks later I repeated my journey. Upon arriving in the city, I was approached by the young man I had treated. He told me that he had known I carried money and medicines. He said, ‘Two weeks ago, some friends and I followed you into the jungle, knowing you would camp overnight. We planned to kill you and take your money and drugs. But just as we were about to move into your camp, we saw that you were surrounded by 26 armed guards.’

At this I laughed and said that I was certainly all alone out in that jungle campsite The young man pressed the point, however, and said, ‘No sir, I was not the only person to see the guards. My five friends also saw them, and we all counted them. It was because of those guards that we were afraid and left you alone.’”

At this point in the sermon, one of the men in the congregation jumped to his feet and interrupted the missionary and asked if he could tell him the exact day that this happened. The missionary told the congregation the date, and the man who interrupted told him this story:

“On the night of your incident in Africa, it was morning here and I was preparing to go play golf. I was about to putt when I felt the urge to pray for you. In fact, the urging of the Lord was so strong, I called men in this church to meet with me here in the sanctuary to pray for you. Would all of those men who met with me on that day stand up?”

The men who had met together to pray that day stood up. The missionary wasn’t concerned with who they were–he was too busy counting how many men he saw. There were 26.

This story is an incredible example of how the Spirit of the Lord moves in mysterious ways. As the story clearly illustrates, “with God all things are possible.” More importantly, God hears and answers the prayers of the faithful!

Extravagant Generosity: Try Giving Yourself Away

Extravagant Generosity is about generously giving of our very selves. Let’s see if the acronym HELP can help us understand and appreciate fully this.

Heed the compassion command. When Jesus was asked, “How should I live?” He answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind [and] love your neighbors as much as you love yourself.” (Luke 10:27). Meister Eckhart once said, “You may call God love, you may call God goodness. But the best name for God is compassion.” We are never more like God than when we give.

Empty yourself so that you might be filled. Empty yourself of whatever it is that stands between you and being the loving person God is calling you to be. Jesus is our example. In Philippians 2, Paul reminds us of how Jesus emptied Himself. He made room for each of us in the kingdom of God through His offering of Himself to us and showed us how we are to live and how we are to die. When we live like that, we become more thoughtful, more caring, more compassionate, more loving people. That’s the consequence of emptying yourself so that the Holy Spirit may begin to fill you and make you more like Jesus.

Lift the burden of others. When we lift the burdens of others—whether they be health issues, the loss of loved ones, turmoil in the lives of members of the family, or emotional strain or others—a miracle occurs and our burdens are lifted as well. It means getting involved with someone else. It means making a sacrifice so that someone else can feel as though the love of Jesus Christ is extended to him or her. That’s the spirit we are called to have—to be like Jesus. He’s the One who is providing the strength for the burdens of life.

Pay the price. The world says to us: Earn all you can, and give out of your abundance. That’s not biblical. The Bible teaches us to give in order to enjoy the abundant life. “If you want to save your life, you will destroy it. But if you give up your life for me, you will find it.” (Matthew 16:25,) The life that overflows with joy is the life that gives itself away. God is calling us to be people who don’t hang on for all we’re worth out of fear but who give and give and give freely. And this giving flows as the love of God to other people.

When we hang on out of fear, we are operating out of a theology of scarcity: Will I have enough? We all have enough. It’s the people in all the impoverished places around the world who don’t have enough. It’s all a matter of where we look and what’s relative to us. Where do we stand in relation to other people, and how much is God asking us to give so that we might lift the burden of others by paying just a very small price?

Can we say to God, “God, whatever you gave me is yours in the first place. I came with nothing, and I’m leaving with nothing; and in between, whatever I have is yours. You’re just letting me use it”?

You see, it’s not about our money; it’s about what is in our hearts. For out of the abundance of the heart our lives speak (Matthew 12:34b). And out of our overwhelming sense of thankfulness comes our response to what God is calling us to do as the people of God. Try giving yourself away and see what miracles begin to happen!                                                                 (STEVE VREDENBURGH)

Contentment Is A Sign Of Spiritual Maturity

Instead of being regretful, we need to be grateful. Instead of complaining, we need to remember that everything is a gift from God.

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 4:7-8, “Isn’t everything you have and everything you are sheer gifts from God? So what’s the point of all this comparing and competing? You already have all you need” (MSG).

Envy always asks, “Why them?” “Why does he have better health?” “Why does she have a job and a husband, and I have neither?”

Gratitude says, “Why me?” “Why do I get to drink clean water when so much of the world doesn’t?” “Why am I not under persecution? Why am I not thrown into prison for my faith?”

Envy is based on the myth that you must have more in order to be happier. It’s just not true. Happiness is a choice. If you’re not happy now, you’re not going to be happy with more. I could give many testimonies of people who have a lot more than you, and it doesn’t make them happier. You are as happy as you choose to be.

Ecclesiastes 6:9 says, “It is better to be satisfied with what you have than to be always wanting something else” (GNT). This is called contentment. All of us need to learn contentment.

Why? Because by nature you are not a contented person. None of us are! It is not natural to be contented. It is mature to be contented. Babies are discontented. Unless everything is going their way, they’re not satisfied. Maturity is learning to be content when things are not going your way. It’s better to be satisfied with what you have than to always want something more.

Let me clarify: Envy is not desire. Desire is good. Envy is not ambition. Ambition is good. You ought to be ambitious and work for good things in your life. Envy is not a dream. You ought to have a dream in your life. Envy is not setting goals. Dreams, ambitions, goals, and desires are all things that God puts in you.

Envy is resenting other people who have something already and thinking that you can’t be happy until you get it, too. Both of those are lies. Instead, learn to be grateful for who you are and what you have. Everything you have is a gift from God!

For Your Reflection

    What is something you can do today to practice gratitude?

    When you’re tempted to resent someone because of what that person has or is, how can you turn it into gratitude? What should you say to that person?

    Why do you think God makes happiness a choice?                (RICK WARREN)

What Does God Look For In A Church?

The Clear, Accurate Teaching of the Bible:  The teaching of the Bible is the first priority of a church. People want church to be relevant, but it will only be relevant if the heart of the ministry is the exposition (explanation and application) of the Bible. The timeless message of the Bible can change lives and meet every genuine need. God looks for a church that is serious about Christian education and keeps the teaching of the Bible as the centerpiece of every service.

A God-Centered Focus in Worship: People determine the value of a worship service by how it makes them feel. Hence, churches often structure worship for entertainment value. True worship, however, is God-centered rather than man-centered. As we leave a worship service, our first question should not be, Was I pleased? It should be, Was God pleased? Worship that pleases God begins with the communication of truth about His greatness and His goodness as revealed in the Bible. This understanding of truth about God elicits adoration and obedience in the heart of the worshiper. God looks for a church that is not designed to entertain you but is intent on making Him known and pleasing Him in every way.

An Authentic Sense of Community:   Christians in the New Testament Church loved one another, encouraged one another, counseled one another, prayed for one another, showed hospitality to one another, held one another accountable, etc. How different that is from what we see in churches today. They often resemble spectator events more than real communities where people live and work together. God looks for a church where the members show their love for one another through their involvement in the lives of one another.

Ministry Shared by Each Member:   In Godʼs plan, every member is a minister, sharing some aspect of the work. Not everyone can teach or oversee the work of the church, but God has prepared every believer to make a significant contribution to the work of the church. God looks for a church that not only encourages its members to get involved in the work of the ministry, but also expects them to do so.

A Passion to Share the Good News of Christ:   The mission of the church is to take the Good News of Jesus Christ throughout the world because He deserves the praise and worship of all people. Therefore, the life mission of every Christian is to share this marvelous message. God looks for a church that eagerly proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Ministry Structure Shaped by Truth:   A church must have a philosophy of ministry that truly reflects the ministry structure taught in the New Testament. God looks for a church that can explain how its philosophy of ministry is derived from the Bible and show how everything they do is designed to be consistent with that philosophy.

Remember that the Church belongs to God. It is Godʼs household— the hurch of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. The six characteristics that God looks for in His church are not optional. They are essential because His church must promote His purposes and exalt His glory. God is passionate about His own glory because He is the One and only being in the all the universe that is truly worthy of our praise.                                             (HURON BAPTIST CHURCH)

The Life That Pleases God

The Life That Pleases God Bears Fruit:  Jesus says “Every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.” If there is not a change in our living then we can conclude there is no change in our souls. Now it is important that we remember that fruitfulness takes time. It takes time for the tree to mature. The same is true for followers of Christ. The change might not be immediately discernable. However, over time we should be seeing a difference in the way people live. Jesus said: “ No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.” We don’t go out to bear more fruit . . . we seek to draw closer to Him and the fruit will come naturally. It’s not a matter of trying harder but drawing closer.

The Life That Pleases God is One that Yearns to Know God Better:  The life that pleases God “keeps on growing in knowledge.” First, growing in the knowledge of God is not the same as seeking to learn how to get more from God. Many of us want to know how to get God to answer our prayers. We want to know how to get God to meet our needs and banish our problems. Second, growing in the knowledge of God is not the same as growing in knowledge about God. We can spend all our time mastering information about God and not have a relationship with God. The life that pleases God is the one that yearns to know more about God so that they can know God better. They read the Bible not for factual information but to discern the heart of God. Their prayer is not totally consumed with requests. They take time to work on their relationship with God.

The Life That Pleases God Endures Troubled Times and is Patient with Difficult People:  God enables us to endure by giving us the strength of His Holy Spirit, the promises of His Word and by reminding us He is in control; He only does what is good; He never makes a mistake. So in hard times we don’t complain . . . we trust. We don’t walk away . . we listen and try to learn. We don’t despair . . . we hang on tighter. Being strong in the times of trouble is difficult. But it may not be as difficult as the concept of patience with difficult people. People naturally react to difficult people negatively. When we are in Christ He begins to give us a different perspective.

The Life That Pleases God is The Life Lived Gratefully:  We thank God for what He’s given while at the same time feeling He should have given more. We seem to think that if God really loved us we would have more money, less illness, more good times, less difficult times. Gratitude begins when we realize we do not deserve the inheritance that has been reserved for us. We should spend every waking moment being grateful that God has pulled us from the jaws of Hell. An attitude of gratitude grows as we learn to open our eyes to the blessings we take for granted. When was the last time you thanked God for the breath you were able to take? When did you last thank Him for the Bible, for fellow believers? When did you last thank Him for a home and conveniences we consider “rights”? When did you last thank Him for your family? Or the trials that give us perspective? We also grow in our gratefulness as we see how wonderful our Savior is.  As we study His words, His actions, and as we become more attuned to His character, we will naturally grow in our gratitude that we are united with One who is so magnificent.                                                                          (REV BRUCE GOETTSCHE)

Lessons From The Parable Of The Wheat And Weeds

1. God has a plan that He is working out over time  (be patient!). We live in a world where tragedies and accidents occur every day and where injustice and violence still wreak havoc in people’s lives. Where is God and why doesn’t He do something? The Parable of the Wheat & Weeds teaches us that God does have a plan for this world and He is working to accomplish it. However, it is unfolding over time and that means there’s some waiting to do, something we find difficult. Jesus is teaching us patience – the patience of a God who chooses to delay His judgment. God is not in a hurry and we must be prepared to trust Him and wait for His time. In the end, God will win and good will overcome evil.

2. There is an enemy at work in the world (be alert!). Alongside the power of the Kingdom another power is at work seeking to disrupt God’s plan. The action of this enemy, the devil, is a prominent feature in Jesus’ ministry. This parable presents us with a worldview that accounts for and is not surprised by evil in the world. It also teaches us that evil will not be completely removed until judgment day but that does not mean that we should not fight against evil in all its forms in the meantime – in our own lives, in the church and in our society. This awareness calls us to live lives on spiritual alert while avoiding the extremes of being ignorant of the devil’s schemes or of becoming overly preoccupied with his activity.

3. God alone is the judge of all people (be humble!). Right from the beginning of history there have been two seeds or two generations of people – the righteous and the wicked. We find our place in either group not by birth, by fate or by our good works but by our response to the grace of God that He shows toward us in unique ways. God desires everyone to be saved and to become His children. Each person will ultimately choose to be either for God or against God and will be treated accordingly. However, in the meantime it is vital that we not get caught up in determining who is IN and who is OUT. God alone knows the human heart and He will be their judge, not us. Wheat and weeds look very similar…until the time of harvest when their true nature is revealed. In fact, Jesus hinted that we may be surprised who is in and who is out. We ourselves are a mixture of wheat and weeds – people in desperate need of the grace of God. This should cause us to be humble in our approach to other people.

When it comes to judgment we must avoid caricatures of God that turn Him into either a sadistic monster ready to unfurl His wrath on people or into a soft grandparent who still give the kids chocolates even after a day of continual misbehaving. God has revealed Himself as a supremely loving, wise, beautiful, holy, just and true God. It is that combination of attributes that we must learn to see when it comes to the matter of judgment.

4. We are called to partner with God’s purpose (be fruitful!). In the Parable of the Wheat & Weeds, we are the seed. God plants His people in His field – this world – and He desires us to be fruitful for Him. A partnership mentality helps us avoid the extremes of apathy (thinking that God will do it all) and of a messianic complex (thinking that we will fix the world and rid it of evil all by ourselves).
