WHO WILL DARE TO BE A DISCIPLE? (Part 4)

For Western believers there is conundrum between faith and works. This is caused by our separation mind emotions and will, while Eastern thought is based upon a 'whole of life 'principle where mind emotions and will are all one. What you beieve, what you feel and what you do are regarded as one.

This is explained in the section FAITH AND WORKS from my book THINKING GREEK OR HEBREW.

FAITH AND WORKS

Greek (Western)


Greek thinkers center on faith. We give preeminence to verses such as....

17 For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” (Romans 1:17)

and.....

8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

As we have mentioned before, our faith is primarily intellectual. If we 'believe' in our minds we are 'saved', that is all that is required of us to inherit eternal life.

Eastern (Hebrew)

Jewish thinking, down through the millennia, has been focused on faith, shown to be real through works, by living a lifestyle that reflects what they believe intellectually. We tend to skip verse 10 of the passage quoted above from Ephesians, but it is integral to the whole.....

10 For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)

James, ever the practical person, was even more definite when he said.....

14 What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? 15 Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. (James 2:14-17)

He understood the Greek based thinking, arguing.....

18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do. 19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder. (James 2:18-19)

and countered with the examples of Abraham.....

20 You foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless? 21 Was not our ancestor Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend. 24 You see that a person is justified by what he does and not by faith alone. (James 2:20-24)

and Rahab.....

25 In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? 26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.
(James 2:25-6)


Most of the parables of Jesus illustrate both faith and action. Of course, the most famous is the Parable of the Good Samaritan. It concludes.....

36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” 37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” (Luke 10:36:7)

The Parable of the Sower makes this point too. We are to 'produce crops', not just intellectually believe.....

23 But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” (Matthew 13:23)

Again, there is to be a change in our character as a result of our conversion, referred to as developing the 'fruit of the Spirit'.....

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. (Galatians 5:22-3)

Yes, our faith is to be reflected in action, resulting in a changed life.

SOME SPIRITUAL IMPLICATIONS FOR TODAY

1. Conversion needs to be accompanied by discipling of new believers.

2. Works are to be a reflection of the God within us to the outside world. To achieve this, they need to be done in the community, not just within the church environment.

3. Our teaching and beliefs about evangelism need to be changed to emphasize the need for a changed life, rather than just being an intellectual decision.

Without a full 100% commitment of all our life to the Lord, we cannot truly become a disciple.

Will you dare to be a disciple? I will.

FROM THE WORD

THE WORDS OF JESUS

May we hear what the Lord is saying to us.

THE RESSURECTION

Jesus Appears to the Disciples Including Thomas (Mark16:14, John:20:25-9)
A week later.

“May you have peace!”

To Thomas.

“Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound on my side. Stop doubting and trust in me!
“You trust in me because you’ve seen me,” “Happy are those that haven’t seen me yet still trust in me.”

Jesus Appears to the Fisherman Disciples (John:21:1-14)
By the Sea of Tiberius.

“My friends, haven’t you caught anything?”
“Throw the net out on the right side of the boat, and you’ll find some,”

Now recognizing Him.

“Bring some of the fish you’ve just caught.”
“Come and eat some breakfast,”

Jesus Questions Peter Three Times ( John:21:15-23)
And reinstates him

“Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these others?”
“Take care of my lambs,”
“Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
“Look after my sheep,”
“Simon, son of John, do you love me?”
“Take care of my sheep,”
“I tell you the truth,” said Jesus, “when you were young, you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted. But when you’re old, you’ll hold out your hands and someone will dress you and take you where you don’t want to go.”
“Follow me.”

Peter asks about John’s future.

“If I want him to remain alive here until I return, why is that your concern? You follow me!”

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. ***


355. LIGHTBULBS
How many Psychiatrists does it take to change a lightbulb?
?? Just one - But the bulb has to want to change!
How many Policeman does it take to change a Lightbulb?
?? 4 - One to change, one for "backup" and 2 to buy the donuts!
How many Norwegians does it take?
?? 3 - One to hold the bulb and 2 to spin the ladder!
How many Ecologists?
?? 25 - 1 to change the bulb and 24 to do the environmental impact study! How many theologians?
?? Who can say? - Each has a different interpretation of what "Light" really is!!

354. GOD'S ANSWERING MACHINE
I have learned to live with the answering machine as a necessary part of modernization. But I have often wondered - What if God decided to install an automated answering machine?

Imagine praying and hearing this - "Thank you for calling My Father's House. Please select one of the following four options: Press 1 for requests. Press 2 for a thanksgiving. Press 3 for complaints. For all other inquiries, press 4.

What if God used the familiar excuse: "All the Angels are helping other customers right now. Please stay on the line. Your call will be answered in the order it was received."
Can you imagine getting these kinds of responses as you call on God in prayer? "If you'd like to speak with Gabriel, press 1. For Michael, press 2. For any other Angel, press 3." "If you'd like King David to sing a psalm for you, press 6." To find out if your relative is here, enter his/her date of death and listen for the list that follows." For answers to nagging questions about dinosaurs, the age of the earth, and where Noah's ark is, wait 'till you get here!" "Our computers show that you have called once today already. Please hang up immediately." "This office is closed for the weekend. Please call again Monday."

THANK GOD YOU CAN'T CALL HIM TOO OFTEN! YOU ONLY NEED TO RING ONCE, AND GOD HEARS YOU. BECAUSE OF JESUS, YOU NEVER GET A BUSY SIGNAL. GOD TAKES EACH CALL AND KNOW EACH CALLER PERSONALLY.

"Then you will call and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and He will say: Here am I." Isaiah 58:9 NTV

353. A LITTLE BIBLE STUDY PROPHETS EVERYONE
The following are some insights young Sunday school students turned in to their teachers:

Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree.
Lot's wife was a pillar of salt by day and a ball of fire by night.
Noah's wife was Joan of Ark.
Samson slew the Philistines with the axe of the apostles.
Moses went to the top of Mt. Cyanide to get the 10 Commandments.
The Seventh Commandment is "Thou shalt not admit adultery."
Joshua led the Hebrews in the battle of Geritol.
Solomon had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.
Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption.
The people who followed Jesus were called the 12 decibels.
The Epistles were the wives of the Apostles.
Paul preached holy acrimony, which is another name for marriage.
A Christian should have only one wife. This is called monotony.
Parables mean there is more than one bull.

FACTS FOR FUN

LAST WEEKS QUESTION: What is an ‘inclined elevator’?

ANSWER: Quite logically, ‘Inclined Elevator’ was another term used at the turn of the twentieth century for what we now call an escalator. The first one was installed at Harrods department store in London and was scary enough that store personnel served brandy to customers who felt faint while riding it. (Most today feel faint at Harrods prices!)

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: What is a Welsh rabbit?

SOME FUN FACTS

382. CAT LOVE
Felix the Cat's girlfriend was named Phyllis. (Good to ‘phyll-is’ in on that!)

383. UNBELIEVABLE?
According to studies conducted at Northwestern University in the US, men change their minds two to three times more than women do. Women tend to take longer to make a decision, but once they do, they are more likely to stick to it. (Can I believe it? Yes… No…)

384. PALKATHON TIME
According to the New York Telephone Company, there are 398 million land line telephones in the world, of which more than one-third are in the United States. (Do Americans have more ears than others?)

165. TO BE OR NOT TO BE (RESCUED)
The shipwrecked mariner had spent several years on a deserted island. Then one morning he was thrilled to see a ship offshore and a smaller vessel pulling out toward him.

When the boat grounded on the beach, the officer in charge handed the marooned sailor a bundle of newspapers and told him, "With the captain's compliments. He said to read
through these and let us know if you still want to be rescued."

164. STEALING?
Late one night in the capitol city a mugger wearing a ski mask jumped into the path of a well-dressed man and stuck a gun in his ribs.

"Give me your money," he demanded.

Indignant, the affluent man replied, "You can't do this I'm a US Congressman!"

"In that case," replied the robber, "give me MY money!"

163. NOW WHAT?
A retiree was given a set of golf clubs by his co-workers.

Thinking he'd try the game, he asked the local pro for lessons, explaining that he knew nothing whatever of the game. The pro showed him the stance and swing, then said, "Just hit the ball toward the flag on the first green."

The novice teed up and smacked the ball straight down the fairway and onto the green, where it stopped inches from the hole. "Now what ?" the fellow asked the speechless pro.

"Uh... you're supposed to hit the ball into the cup." the pro finally said, after he was able to speak again.

"Oh great ! NOW you tell me." said the beginner in a disgusted tone.

163. THE FRIENDLY PIG
A man was on a a long walk in the country. He became thirsty so decided to stop at a little cottage and ask for something to drink.

The lady of the house invited him in and served him a bowl of soup by the fire. There was a wee pig running around the kitchen, running up to the visitor and giving him a great deal of attention. The visitor commented that he had never seen a pig this friendly.

The housewife replied: "Ah, he's not that friendly. That's his bowl you're using."

Amid Persecution, Christianity is 'Exploding' in an Unlikely Place

How Christianity Is "Exploding" in Iran: Beautiful Testimonies Born from Tragic Lives

"The Lord saves us, but the Gospel's also full of the power to redeem and the power to restore and to bring reconciliation and her testimony really speaks to that and shows it in a very powerful, tangible way." -Mark Howard, Elam Ministries

(Iran)—[CBN News] Christians in Iran face imprisonment, beatings, and even death. But the Church continues to grow at a rapid rate. (Photo: CBN News)

In 1979, when the Islamic revolution swept to power there were only about 500 Muslim Background Believers, according to the reference book "Operation World." It estimates that today there are at least 100,000 MBB's and [in] some places the number [is] as high as 1 million.

Dissatisfaction with the harsh Islamic regime and disillusionment with Islam in general are part of the shift, but the main reason is bold outreach by Christians inside the country, Mark Howard of Elam Ministries told CBN News.

Elam Ministries works to strengthen the Iranian Church both inside the country and among the diaspora living in the Middle East and Europe.

"I think first and foremost we have to acknowledge that many people have been praying for Iran for a long time and that the Lord is doing something special in that region," he said.

Powerful testimonies of people from all walks of life—including hardened criminals, Muslims imams, and abused women—are finding faith in Christ are pouring out of Iran, Howard wrote in a blog on The Gospel Coalition web page.

He told the story of Fatemah, a young Muslim girl who was sexually abused by her brothers from a young age. When she was 11-years-old her family sold her into marriage, but soon her husband divorced her and sent her back. Facing the prospect of more sexual abuse, Fatemah ran away and began living on the streets.

It was there that she heard about Jesus and gave her life to Him. She began attending church and married a Christian man. As she and her husband, Howard, attended a ministry training session hosted by Elam Ministries, Fatemah sensed the Lord telling her to go back and minister to her family. (File photo: via Elam Ministries)

Her husband struggled with the decision.

"He told the Lord, 'I can't love these people after what they've done to my wife, but give me Your love for them,'" Howard said.

When they returned, the family listened to the Gospel message and they all turned to Christ. Today, their home is a house church and Fatemah is one of the leaders.

Fatemah's story "speaks to the tragic beauty ... of so many testimonies that come out of that region," Howard said.
It demonstrates not just the saving power of the Gospel, but its transforming power, as well.

"The Lord saves us, but the Gospel's also full of the power to redeem and the power to restore and to bring reconciliation and her testimony really speaks to that and shows it in a very powerful, tangible way," he said.

TRANSFORMATION OF THE CHURCH

One day, while in the shower, (that is, from a bucket) in Nairobi, Kenya, the Lord gave me a revelation.

I had just seen the amazing new TBN broadcasting auditorium on TV, filled with beautiful people (it seems compulsory for preachers to have glamorous wives, generally much younger than themselves!), fantastic choirs, singers and setting, all broadcast over 47 satellites.

In the shower the Lord showed me a picture of the Pentecostal church. How it started in storefronts and homes, of how rejected these first weird ‘pentes’ were. But these early pentecostals remained fully committed to the cause, staying close to God, for they were then at the forefront of God’s revelation and indeed, presence.

Gradually however, Pentecostalism (now with a capital ‘P’,) has become mainstream. Pastors (and now Bishops) have become elevated beyond a job description or a calling, to positions above the people – a new priesthood. In the west, new pastors must be seminary trained, and are likely receive a reasonable salary from the beginning of their ministry. No longer is their real sacrifice in being ‘called’ to ministry.

In our services, the emphasis has changed from listening to the Holy Spirit and following His desires, to a concentration on excellence and good order, to the near exclusion of the Holy Spirit leading us. Worship times, unlike the days of the storefront believers, are based on a proven formula of thanksgiving, praise, then worship, followed by (maybe) a prophecy, then the Word and finally ministry – until we all go home after exactly 2 hours.

Next comes an emphasis on building buildings ‘for the glory of God’, as so grandiosely epitomized by TBN. I have been involved in three different pentecostal churches over the years and have seen this process in practice. All churches that started meeting in homes, then storefronts or halls, before being ‘called’ to build or buy a church. The church then has to be rebuilt to be bigger, or ancillary buildings added, so that a ‘church complex’ is created.

Often too, we hear the statement, ‘God is in the house’. Wow! Fantastic! But is it true? Is God really in these beautiful structures man has created? Or rather, is He in the hearts of the people who inhabit the house? Or again, has He departed altogether, to allow us to ‘play church’ in the beautiful temples we have built.

The process of ‘monument building’ that started in the fourth century AD with the Roman Catholic Church, and which continued after the Reformation once those churches became mainstream, continues today as Pentecostalism enters the mainstream also. This seems to be the process of a ‘maturing church’.

The Lord showed me that the people He calls on to impart the next revelation are those with the kingdom within, those dissatisfied with the established status quo, those hungering for more of Him. Those whose emphasis remains on the spiritual, who have not been seduced by the inevitable physical emphasis of the ‘maturing’ church.

Today God is calling out another new generation, as He has in times past. It is a new generation desiring to move forward into the new (but old!) truths of submission and obedience to the Father’s will, of servanthood and sacrifice, a simple people with hearts sold our to God, those who will finally fulfil the Great Commission. A Church not of Pastors, Programmes and Property, but of ‘kingdom people’, who, through their sacrifice, will usher in the return of Jesus.

WAXING LYRICAL

This is my very first poem, written during a really hard period in my life. For we had
lost our business and I was fighting desperately, ultimately unsuccessfully, to stave off
bankruptcy. Written in the days before I became a Christian, (it took bankruptcy to do
that – some of us are slow learners!) but I was starting to look at what really are the
important things in life.


BESIDE ME

When I look back on all we have done together,
Picking the daffodils in the wind and the rain,
I am so grateful that whatever the weather,
And bearing the back that gives you pain,
You have walked beside me.

At times it has been a lot of fun,
We have laughed, cried and had the odd thrill.
But more often you have had to run,
To race, to get the job done, but still,
You have walked beside me.

And now, when my life has collapsed around my ears,
Your strength has helped me to keep my sanity,
When I have been down and experienced new fears, While I have suffered great blows
to my vanity,
You have walked beside me.

I have worked so hard all these years,
To yours and the family’s cost.
It is hard sometimes to fight back the tears,
Yet no matter how much we have lost,
You have walked beside me.

Your beauty has always drawn me to you
Like the bee to the flower of the honeysuckle tree,
To me I know you have always been true
While surely, sometimes you have wanted to be free,
You have walked beside me.

And though life at times seems bitter, twisted and curled,
Your love gives me strength to go on fighting.
I am just the luckiest man in all the world,
To have your name next to mine in writing.
You have walked beside me.

And now as I have to rebuild my life’
To meet new challenges, to reach new goals.
How blessed I am to have you as my wife,
To know that however the countryside rolls,
You will walk beside me.

A DAVID MUSING

This week has seen the breaking of a drought in our province of Hawkes Bay, on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand.

To hear the rain upon the roof, heavy rain at that, was music to our ears. We live in a farming (primarily sheep and beef cattle) and horticultural (primarily, apples, stone fruit and kiwifruit) area.

Without rain our crops won't grow, and we will suffer financially.

Without regular spiritual rain of the Holy Spirit, we will die, or at least become stunted in our spiritual growth too.

Do you welcome the rain of the Holy Spirit in your life? I do.

Until next week.......

MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU BLESS GOD.

His servant and yours
