GOD'S CALLING HIS CHURCH 10: FROM SERVING PROGRAMMES TO MEETING INDIVIDUAL NEEDS

The major thrust in just about every church, everywhere, is implementing the church's programmes to bring in the lost, build up the body, feed the hungry and serve the community. These are worthy goals. Not only in themselves, but also to help build a sense of teamwork and unity in the body. And also, to be seen to be doing something positive to build God's kingdom, through your particular fellowship.

Yes, programmes are at the heart of our church life, in fact, are the heart of our church life! To be involved in the programmes is seen as the model of an effective member of the church. Our commitment to God is judged by our loyalty to our church's programme.

But do our programmes work? Being really honest and realistic, if 10% of the promises proclaimed about the potential success of each and every programme was achieved, the world would have been 'saved' and 'transformed' many times over. But it hasn't been, has it? Yet we persist with programme after programme in the vain hope that the next one will succeed where the others failed.

PARAGRAPH FOR PASTORS: Pastors, you attend the latest seminar on the greatest programme that has proved to be successful in growing a church or churches somewhere in a spectacular fashion. You get fired up! You come home and apply the programme, the method, to your own church. The programme fails or meets with limited success. You are deeply disappointed. You attend another seminar. You apply another programme. The cycle continues. You end up disillusioned and your people burned out. If you are resolute you continue the cycle. Or you quit, your resilience having reached its limit.

Enough of the negative stuff! But no, not another programme in the making here! What did Jesus do? While Jesus preached to the multitudes on occasions and fed the 4,000 and 5,000, (ineffectually in human terms, for there were only about 120 dedicated followers left after the disappointment of His death), He spent most of his time ministering to the needs of, and training, individuals. Just one of numerous examples follows.

40 A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” 41 Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured. (Mark 1:40-42)

He sent His disciples out two by two.

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. (Luke 10:1)

They ministered both to people's physical and spiritual needs.

9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God is near you.’(Luke 10:9)

We are to show the love of Jesus to others, to love our neighbours as ourselves. True agape love, one of self-sacrifice for others, can really only be given and received on a personal basis. Programmes, no matter how good they are, tend to lose sight of this reality. 'Programmed love' is not possible. For agape love comes from within.

Instead of promoting programmes then, let us encourage one another to develop servant hearts of agape love. Then we will naturally identify with and meet community needs, so becoming as Jesus to its members.

Our relationship with Jesus is an individual, not a corporate, one. Too, a personal love and concern for non-believers physical and spiritual needs is by far the most effective form of building the kingdom. God's kingdom, not ours, that is. Of course we need to co-operate, helping and encouraging one another, but the extension of God's kingdom depends upon you, and upon me, doing the work. This will not happen through reliance upon man-generated programmes that have worked somewhere else. Yes, God is calling on you and on me individually, to be the light of Jesus to a lost world.

PRINCIPLE 10: God is calling His people to become personally involved in meeting individual needs within the community.

"But God, this latest programme is sure to work! It increased XYZ Church 100 fold! And they have told me how to do it!" "David, why not try following my instructions, and be as Jesus to your neighbours." "Okay God, but it's hard!." "But not when I am with you, my son."

FROM THE WORD

THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT
"Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: ”‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:34-40)

JESUS SENDS OUT THE SEVENTY-TWO
"After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road. “When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you. Stay in that house, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house. “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is set before you. Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God is near you.’ But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your town that sticks to our feet we wipe off against you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God is near.’ I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town. “Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths. “He who listens to you listens to me; he who rejects you rejects me; but he who rejects me rejects him who sent me.” The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.” He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure. “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. For I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.” (Luke 10:1-24)

DAVID'S DOODLINGS

MINISTRY 3

1208. To the Christian, ministry is a requirement, not a calling.

1209. Professional ministry is a great excuse to leave God's work to someone else!

1210. Ministry is service, not position.

1211. Priests instruct, ministers serve.

1212. The 'priesthood of believers' is the latent power of the church. When released, it transforms the world.

1213. The ministry of example is the most powerful ministry of all.

1214. The true hallmark of ministry is not professionalism, but service.

Please feel free to quote these quotes. Acknowledgement of David Tait as the author would be appreciated. There are now over 1200 David sayings for you to view at ...

FROM YOU - TO ME - TO YOU

Hi David
Your comments on Church Buildings is good and I believe in the importance of people being the true building of God.

But I also have to plug how wonderful and liberating it has also been to have our own building in which we have been able like never before to minister into our community by having a base and resources to work from. For the last fifteen years we have been from home to home, hall to hall you name it. Most of our time was spent in setting up and packing away, now we can focus on ministering to others. We also are not in a major financial debt that we are always asking for money for a building. We have seen more growth since having our own premises, more souls being saved, more baptisms, more families and much more ministries being released to minister into our community. Land must be important to God also as He would not have asked Abraham to purchase some and the Children of Israel to possess it as well. It makes a statement to those in our community of many things when a church has its own place of worship. Things like “we are here to stay and not just some fly by nighter’s”? We are here to serve our generation and the generation t come by thinking ahead so that they don’t have to go through the awful process of not being able to have a place for worship.

I have done both, moved around, been in many halls etc and now that we have our building it is also part of our journey in what God is doing with His Church.

God Bless
George

MEGACHURCHES AND ARMENIANISM
I find that I must comment on your (Andries, that is. DJT) understanding of the armenian theology that we are saved by good works of faith. Not at all true. The Wesleyan-Armenian stance on the issue is that we are indeed saved by grace through faith and this not of ourselves, it is the gift of God. HOWEVER, we are also called BECAUSE of our faith to manifest that faith through the works God calls us to do. It is a love response to God's saving grace, not an attempt to PERSUADE God to grant us the grace of salvation. We are in full agreement with James. I will show you my faith by the works that I do...for faith without works is a dead faith ... it does not result in the manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit ... nor does it attract any others to Jesus.

CRANWELL'S CARTOON







THE CALLING OF THE FIRST DISCIPLES
18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.
21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

LAUGHING AT OURSELVES

***Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused***

*** "Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others." ***

493. PREACHING
It's about two elderly excited women who were sitting together in the front pew of church with a fiery preacher. When this preacher condemned the sin of lust, these two ladies cried out at the top of their lungs.....AMEN... BROTHER!

When the preacher condemned the sin of stealing, they yelled again....PREACH IT REVEREND!
And when the preacher condemned the sin of lying.... they jumped to their feet and screamed, RIGHT ON BROTHER.... TELL IT LIKE IT IS..... AMEN!

But when the preacher condemned the sin of gossip, the two got quiet and one turned to the other and said, "He's done quit preaching and now he's meddlin'."

492. SUNDAY SERVICE
The 2000 member church was filled to overflowing capacity one Sunday morning. The preacher was ready to start the sermon when two men, dressed in long black coats and black hats entered thru the rear of the church.
One of the two men walked to the middle of the church while the other stayed at the back of the church. They both then reached under their coats and withdrew automatic weapons.
The one in the middle announced, "EVERYONE WILLING TO TAKE A BULLET FOR JESUS STAY IN YOUR SEAT!"

Naturally, the pews emptied, followed by the choir. The deacons ran out the door, followed by the choir director and the assistant pastor.

After a few moments, there were about 20 people left sitting in the church. The preacher was holding steady in the pulpit.

The men put their weapons away and said, gently, to the preacher, "All right, pastor, the hypocrites are gone now. You may begin the service."

FACTS FOR FUN

LAST WEEKS QUESTION: What creature has infrared receptors to help it catch prey in total darkness?

ANSWER: Snakes! Certain snakes, including pythons and boa constrictors, have pits along their lips that are actually infrared heat receptors. These receptors can help a snake locate prey even in total darkness. (I pray not to be the prey! What am I worried about? New Zealand is about the only country that doesn’t have snakes!)

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: What is the lowest place on Earth?

Answer Next Week.

SOME FUN FACTS

512. PARDON?
Baseball player Connie Mack’s real name was Cornelius McGilicuddy. (Too long a handle to bat with!)

513. FLYING SQUARE
The Swiss flag is square. (But generally doesn’t have holes in it, as does their cheese.)

514. BE PREPARED
A golden razor removed from the tomb of King Tutankhamen (1336 - 1327 BC) was still sharp enough to be used. (As he was murdered when only 18, he may not have had much use out of it!)

MANNERS AND CUSTOMS IN BIBLICAL LANDS

CANAANITES AND PHOENICIANS WORSHIPPED MANY NATURE GODS

Baal, regarded as the master of the earth, had an arm that hurled bolts of lightening, and his voice made thunder. The Israelites referred to Baal as Baal-zebul or Beelzebub, meaning 'lord of the flies', no doubt because of hordes of flies buzzing around the animal sacrifices surrounding the idol. By New Testament times, Beelzebub had become a title for satan.

TOP 10 COUNTRIES PERSECUTING CHRISTIANS

9. Laos
Together with Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam and China, Laos is one of the remaining communist-ruled countries in the world. Laos’ constitution provides for religious freedom. However, the absence of rule of law and specific regulation on religious matters allows local officials to interpret and implement the constitutional provisions as they choose. The Laotian authorities allow limited presence of Christianity and put believers under strict surveillance. The regime limits the number of open churches and regularly closes churches, especially in the countryside. The biggest challenges to the church in Laos are societal pressure against converts who renounce evil spirit worship. But still there are many unregistered activities and the church seems to be growing despite persecution. Our staff in the region report that the situation for Christians has improved over 2005, particularly in the southern part of the country. The situation has especially improved at the grassroots level. Christian leaders in the south have expressed that they are able to undertake many church activities with no or little government interference, and training of leaders by major local leaders has increased. What particularly has changed in the last three years is the increasing ability of church leaders or individual Christians to bring cases of persecution and abuse by local government leaders to the respective national offices. When abuses were reported to the national government, local officials were reprimanded and removed from office or transferred to other locations. However, the main group of Christians in the north continues to face difficulties and persecution. Though to a lesser extent than in previous years, Christians continued to be arrested for their faith and put under pressure to renounce their faith in 2005. Bible imports were cancelled in August as the regime stepped up monitoring the provinces that were used to transport the materials.

10. China
In China, the constitution provides for freedom of religious belief and the freedom not to believe. New comprehensive regulations on religious affairs passed on March 1. The most significant change is that a church can register directly under the Religious Affairs department instead of under the Three Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM). There seems to be no real change compared to the old religion law though and it appears that the government is using the new regulations to pressure unregistered house churches to register and extend control over them. During 2005, a massive crackdown took place on house churches throughout China in which thousands of Christians were arrested. Most of them were released after a few days.

A REVELATION OF... THE POWER OF THREE IN GOD AND THE CHURCH

In walking further with Jesus, I increasingly appreciate that this particular revelation of 'threes in God' has been hugely important in developing my understanding of God and how He works both in the church and in our lives.

It matters not whether you are a 'oneness', 'twoness', or 'trinitarian' believer. The concept still applies. For we're all very good at putting God in a box, limited to the walls of our theology and understanding. But, one day, we will know all the truth of the great mystery of God.

In the meantime, if you can grasp this simple, yet profound concept, I'm sure it will open up new realms of understanding for you too about God and His plans for His people in these end days.

It certainly developed my faith tremendously, being able to grasp more of God's mighty plan for me. And for you too!

A GOOD MAN GOES TO HEAVEN?

One of the greatest misunderstandings of man over the two millennia since Christ has been that you can earn your passage into heaven through being a good person – that is by works alone. The message of Jesus however was that the only way into heaven was through belief in Him – called faith. Perhaps why this poem was given to me.

A GOOD MAN GOES TO HEAVEN?

I met a man, a very good man,
He looked after his family well.
And his son was his greatest fan,
He had no fear of going to hell.
For surely, a good man goes to heaven?

He went to church at Christmas and Easter
And was most generous with donations,
While the pastors words could not be clearer
He’d sit there, in control of his emotions.
For surely, a good man goes to heaven?

He was active in the community,
A man of standing - a Rotarian indeed.
Helping others at every opportunity,
The pillar of hope to those in need.
For surely, a good man goes to heaven?

He had a dear friend, a Moslem brother,
Six times a day facing Mecca he’d pray.
To the God of Abraham, indeed no other,
Of course, he too had found another way.
For surely, a good man goes to heaven?

Or the man in the jungle, he hadn’t been taught,
He would never have heard of the Jesus word!
Living a good life, doing as he ought,
In no way could he be for the sword!
For surely, a good man goes to heaven?

A DAVID MUSING

This week has been a particularly testing one for me yet, at the same time, a blessed one too.

It is always good to stop and think what the Lord has done. For, in the natural, we remember the testing, the hard part, but now that I think about it, the good far outweighs the bad! Yes, we need to keep things in perspective. It's so easy to forget God's goodness when we are faced with a problem. Yet the sign of true rest in Him is when we can give Him thanks and praise in all situations - and really believe it!

I feel so much better now! Thank you for helping me! PTL!

So until next week...

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD.

His servant and yours

Today's 'Word Puzzle' Answer: AIRMAN

TODAY'S 'DO YOU KNOW?' ANSWER: c. 1380 A.D. John Wycliffe (1330 - 1384) was a scholar, preacher and social reformer in England who spoke out against corruption in the Church and non-Biblical Church teachings. He wanted to make the Bible accessible to the common people instead of just the few scholars and clergymen who could read Latin. So, he took on the task of translating the Latin Vulgate into English.
