DayBreaks for 08/01/13 – Outside the Formula

DayBreaks for 08/01/13 – Outside the Formula     

chemistry labFrom the DayBreaks Archive 08/01/2003:

I read recently about an explosion in a college university chemistry lab where some students accidentally blew up a chemistry lab.  It’s the kind of thing that you see on cartoons all the time, but you don’t really expect it to happen in a college classroom for some reason.  Yet it did.  Why?  How did it happen?  It apparently was an honest mistake – the students didn’t check the formula carefully, or they got the wrong materials and – BOOM! – the place was reduced to splinters, smoke and glass.  I don’t recall that anyone was harmed, which was incredibly lucky.

We like to think that there are nice, simple formulas that are safe and which will get us through life.  I don’t think it’s quite that easy, based on this passage of scripture: (Matthew 19:16-21) “Now a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?” 17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments.”  18 “Which ones?” the man inquired.  Jesus replied, “‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.'”  20 “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?” 21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” (NIV)

It appears, on the surface, that the young man had an admirable interest in things of God – or at least, what he thought God could go for him (he wanted eternal life – there’s no statement that he really cared about serving God for God’s sake).  So he asked Jesus what to do, and Jesus told him – at least in the beginning – all the formulaic stuff that you would expect.  “Keep the commandments.”  The young man proudly replied that he had done all those things – so was there anything else that Jesus would require of him?  Oh, yes, said Jesus.  There is much more.  If you’ve kept the commandments, you’ve only started – you are by no means done.  BOOM!  All of a sudden the formula exploded in the face of the young man – for what Jesus was asking him was now “outside the formula”.  No one had ever asked him to do that before…and it wasn’t what he wanted to hear.

The simple truth is that God/Jesus want to take us beyond the simple, predictable and easy formula into what following Jesus is really all about.  Bottom line: the question was what do I have to do to have eternal life.  The bottom line answer: be like me, follow me – into poverty, into selflessness, into generosity – but mostly “follow me”.  Jesus was the most radical person who ever lived.  His answers denied the formulas of the religions leaders.   We want it simple with pat answers – Jesus is not a simple Master.  He wants people who will dare to be like him – people who operate outside the simple formula of “religious life” and obeying of a list of rules.  Radical commitment – that’s the name of the game.

PRAYER: We want everything reduced to a simple formula, Lord, looking for easy answers and easy formulas.  Help us realize that what you want from us is radical discipleship and commitment!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

DayBreaks for 07/31/13 – On Hummingbirds and Freedom

DayBreaks for 07/31/13 – On Hummingbirds and Freedom        

_MG_2361Luke 12:13 (NLT)  Then someone called from the crowd, “Teacher, please tell my brother to divide our father’s estate with me.” 

The background to today’s verse was a younger brother who was upset about the distribution of his father’s estate.  As the younger brother, he’d get only half of what the elder brother received.  This didn’t sit well with this young man.  Such disputes have torn families apart for millennia – tragically!

I read recently about a family that put up a hummingbird feeder with four feeding stations.  In a matter of a few minutes it became immensely popular with the hummingbirds that lived in the area. Two, three, or even four birds would feed at one time. The feeder would be refilled at least once a day.

Then, seemingly without warning, the usage decreased nearly overnight to almost nothing. The family found it necessary to fill the feeder only about once a week. The reason for the change soon became apparent: a male hummingbird had taken over the feeder as his property. He was now the only hummingbird who used it. He would feed to his heart’s content and then sit in a nearby tree, rising to attack any bird that even approached his feeder. Guard duty occupied his every waking hour. He was an effective guard. The only time another bird got to use the feeder was when the self-appointed owner was momentarily gone to chase away an intruder.

That hummingbird can teach us a very valuable and much needed lesson. By choosing to assume ownership of the feeder, he surrendered his freedom. He was no longer free to come and go as he wished. He was tied to the work of guarding his feeder, his STUFF, constantly lest some other bird should get some of it and he’d have less. He was possessed by his possession.

The simple truth is that the more we have, the less freedom we have.  I don’t think any human ever lived who knew more freedom than Jesus…and he had a cloak and sandals and that was it. 

Our hearts need changing because we’ve believed Satan when he whispers to us that we’ll be happier if we only get this-or-that.  Satan has erected those things as idols in our lives…and he’s really good at building idols that cause us to bow the knee.

Jesus wants to set us free not just from dead, but from idol worship.  He wants to change our wants.  He wishes to change our wishes.  He desires to change our desires.

PRAYER: Lord, I confess that I am still too much in love with “things” that possess my heart, and I love the “things” I have too much.  Gently, change my heart to want that relationship with you more than anything else in this world.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

DayBreaks for 07/30/13 – The Danger of the Backward Glance

DayBreaks for 07/30/13 – The Danger of the Backward Glance 

looking-back-over-my-shoulder-a22249969Luke 9:62 (NLT)  But Jesus told him, “Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.”

The old Sunday school story is a familiar one: Lot and his wife and daughters leave the city of Sodom and get out just in time before judgment falls on the cities in the form of fire and brimstone.  It was a close call…one could almost imagine the smell of smoke permeating their clothes. 

Before leaving, they were warned to not look back.  But as you know, Lot’s wife just couldn’t resist a backwards glance…and was punished for her disobedience.  Was her infraction worse than what Lot would do with his daughters?  No.  So why did she receive such a harsh judgment?  I don’t know…one should never second-guess a Sovereign God and I’m sure He had His reasons that some day He can explain to us (if we’re still interested in such things once we see Him.)

I suspect, however, that it was an object lesson for us that relates to Jesus’ words in Luke 9:62, telling us that having once started on a path, looking back is just plain foolish.

Why is it that we have such a longing to look back?  I’m speaking here of the desire to “reminisce” about our previous life before becoming a Christian – to the “pleasures of sin” as the Good Book calls them.  I have a hunch it’s because there is still a lot of the “old man” left in us.  It’s because we haven’t fully and completely died to the desires of the flesh.  It’s because we’ve not seen or experienced at any level approaching the ultimate level of the joys and delights of heaven that await those who don’t turn back.

Jesus knows we are prone to backward glances.  He also knows that backward glances are deadly because our memories of past sins sing siren songs to us (Satan makes sure of that!)  He knows that the agonies of hell are real and joys of heaven are equally real and that no earthly pleasure can compare to what heaven holds nor earthly pain to that of the pit.

Are you being tempted to cast a backwards glance over your shoulder?  Listen to Jesus and keep looking ahead! 

PRAYER: Our pasts not only haunt us, Lord, but they call to us to tempt us to return to our old ways!  Strengthen us and keep us from turning our heads back with longing!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

DayBreaks for 07/29/13 – Salt, Negotiation and Our Nation

DayBreaks for 07/29/13 – Salt, Negotiation and Our Nation        

Abraham-Friend-of-God2Genesis 18:32 (NLT)  Finally, Abraham said, “Lord, please don’t be angry with me if I speak one more time. Suppose only ten are found there?” And the LORD replied, “Then I will not destroy it for the sake of the ten.”

The story of Abraham negotiating with God over the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah has always been of great interest to me.  I hate negotiating anything.  I know that many places in the world it is expected when you go to buy food or wares.  In Ghana, you could get a much better price if you negotiate.  The same is true for India and Mexico.  It just isn’t that way in America for most things.  You do negotiate for a few things here, most notably cars (and I HATE that process!!!!)

It’s one thing to haggle over the price of a shirt or car with someone, but quite another thing entirely to haggle with God – repeatedly.  I mean, at what point have you pushed too far – and what would the consequences be?

So, this is interesting to me for that reason, but there are several other reasons, too:

FIRST: in verse 27, Abraham recognizes he is nothing more than dust and ashes, and there he is, arguing with the Almighty God.  Abraham is known as the father of the faithful, but he’s also the father of the slightly crazed in my opinion.

SECOND: the story shows us God’s great willingness to be patient with evil and to (dare I say) tolerate evil for a longer period of time for the sake of sparing the “righteous”.  It wouldn’t be right for God to destroy the righteous with the wicked…at least that’s the argument put forth here.  In a sense, Abraham is suggesting it would give God a black eye.  His reputation for fairness would be tarnished, and Abraham uses that as a negotiating chip.

THIRD (and this is the key one for purposes of this devotion): it doesn’t take much many righteous to spare a city…nor does it take many righteous for God to spare a nation.  But here’s the point: if God is to spare America, there must be people here who are living and acting righteously.  How many must there be before God destroys our nation?  I honestly have no clue.  But I know this: each day every believer must decide if we’ll be salt and light (and we must decide that many times during each day whenever we are faced with a moral/ethical situation) and then we must realize that the fate of our nation may well hang in the balance as we collectively make those decisions. 

Will we be that salt and light?  Or will we be tasteless and shadows?  May we also be the ones who intercede on behalf of our country!

PRAYER: Father, Your long-suffering and patience is incredible, but not without limits.  May we learn from this passage that how we act doesn’t just affect our relationship with you, but that the fate of our nation for our children and grandchildren may well hang in the balance based on our actions!  Give us courage, Lord, to be righteous!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

DayBreaks for 07/26/13 – Ain’t No Good Excuse

DayBreaks for 07/26/13 – Ain’t No Good Excuse  

02_01_banquetLuke 14:15-20 (NLT) Hearing this, a man sitting at the table with Jesus exclaimed, “What a blessing it will be to attend a banquet in the Kingdom of God!” 16  Jesus replied with this story: “A man prepared a great feast and sent out many invitations. 17  When the banquet was ready, he sent his servant to tell the guests, ‘Come, the banquet is ready.’ 18  But they all began making excuses. One said, ‘I have just bought a field and must inspect it. Please excuse me.’ 19  Another said, ‘I have just bought five pairs of oxen, and I want to try them out. Please excuse me.’ 20  Another said, ‘I now have a wife, so I can’t come.’

The man sitting at the table with Jesus (do you think he had any idea what a privilege that was!?!?!) had it right: what a blessing it will be to feast at the banquet in the Kingdom of God! 

It is hard to believe there are those who reject the invitation.  Why would they do such a thing?  The reasons they give are frivolous, but perhaps that’s the point: any excuse that a person uses for not coming to such a banquet makes no sense when compared with what they are missing.  Excuses are just excuses…they don’t hold water in the final analysis, nor do they make much sense when exposed to the light of day.

But what of the excuses I make for not being with the Lord more than I am?  Do they hold water any more than the excuses given to the giver of the banquet for not coming to the feast?  Every time I choose something else over Him, I’m giving an excuse.  All the excuses started with a key word: “I”….  That’s been our problem since day one, hasn’t it?

PRAYER: Thank you for the invitation to come to you and dine and fellowship!  Open our eyes to see the great privilege you have extended to us and forgive us for the excuses we give for why we cannot spend time with you!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

DayBreaks for 07/24/13 – Keeping God Alive

DayBreaks for 07/24/13 – Keeping God Alive       

forgiveMatthew 6:12 (NLT)  …and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.

Jesus prayed: forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. In the novel The Great Hunger, a newcomer comes to a farm community. He refuses all friendship with his neighbors and puts out the no trespassing sign. One day a little child from the town climbs underneath his fence to pet his dog. The vicious animal leaps on her and kills her.

 As a result, hostility spreads throughout the community because of the death of this precious child. When the newcomer comes to town no one will speak to him. Clerks refuse to wait on him. Spring comes and the merchants refuse to sell him seed. Finally, the father of the girl who was killed comes over and sows his field. This act of kindness is too much for the insufferable newcomer. “Why you of all people?” he asks. The father responds: “To keep God alive in my heart.”

The experience of forgiveness is basic to our spiritual health. It is the way that we keep God alive in our hearts. But there is more. The petition says: Forgive us as we forgive others. In other words, we are asking God to forgive in proportion to our forgiving. We become our own judge and jury if we fail to forgive!

It isn’t easy – in fact, in a situation where a child is harmed or killed, it is exceedingly difficult.  The fact that it can happen at all is a testimony to the power of the Spirit to transform us. 

Let’s all work harder at keeping God alive in our hearts rather than keeping the hurts alive.  What a different world it would be if all God’s children were not only forgiven, but forgivers!

PRAYER: Forgive me, Lord, for the times I fail to forgive others.  Live and reign in my heart!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

DayBreaks for 07/23/13 – Keepers of the Aquarium

DayBreaks for 07/23/13 – Keepers of the Aquarium        

aquariumMatthew 28:18-20 (NLT)  Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19  Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20  Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Of course you recognize the passage above and can probably quote it nearly verbatim.  We know it as the Great Commission.  What is it that makes this commission so “great”?  Several things:

FIRST: the scope of the command is great – “all the nations”, “all the commands”.  Jesus doesn’t have a small vision, but a universal one.  He doesn’t care about just one nation but every one of them.  He doesn’t want us to just teach the commands that we like while skipping the others – he wants us to convey each and every one of them!

SECOND: the authority behind this command comes from the one who has all the power in the universe (all of creations) as well as all the power in heaven itself.  That’s what you call Authority with a capital A!  It isn’t some piddly pip-squeak who doesn’t matter who has given the command to go, but someone who can do something about it if we do – and if we don’t!  And knowing that this matters so much to someone with that much authority means we should take it very, very seriously!

FINALLY: this was the last command Jesus gave his followers, giving it special significance.  He would no longer be here physically to do it himself.  He knew that the disciples would only be on earth a relatively short time and it was imperative for their disciples to take on the challenge and so on down throughout every generation for as long as the earth will stand.

I fear, however, that there’s trouble in paradise.  I fear that the church (that means you and me!!!) has lost the fever for evangelism for the most part.  I fear, that what Paul Harvey said may well be true: “We’ve drifted away from being fishers of men to being keepers of the aquarium.

Ouch.  Double-ouch.  Why are churches not growing?  Hasn’t Mr. Harvey hit it on the head?  We’re more interested in feeding what we’ve got than in getting more fish.  Both are needed, but it’s far too easy to excuse our lack of evangelism by saying “My calling is to be a teacher, not an evangelist.”  I know whereof I speak, for I used that excuse myself.  But Jesus’ command wasn’t just to those with the gift of evangelism, but to all believers.  It’s time we get to it because time is the one thing that is running out…

PRAYER: Lord, I know that throughout my life I’ve given you all sorts of reasons why I am not more involved with personally sharing the gospel with unbelievers.  I also know that I don’t have that much time left.  I pray that you’ll help me and all of us who call ourselves by your glorious Name stop being keepers of fish to fishing for them!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
