HAS THE TRUE DEFINITION OF “FRIEND” BEEN LOST ALONG WITH OUR LOVE FOR MODERN GADGETRY?

A few months ago a friend of mine told me he has well over 700 “friends” on his face book page, and his plans are to make personal contact with each one of them. His plan is to photograph each one over the next few years. He has named his project, “Friends I really know,” He wants to photograph each “friend” doing what they love—in their every-day activities.  Through this project, he wants to rid himself of the impersonal, superficial nature of what is known as “friending.” A worth-while plan, I believe, if he can pull it off.

 

A project of this type reminds me very much of  John 1:14, and the way Jesus personally reached out to mankind. He became our friend when “[He] became a man (ie; came to earth), and made his home among us”.  Jesus lived among us –He looked into our eyes, healed people, ate meals with some, He fished with others, and even sailed with some, and He preached to many— all because He interacted with the people of the world.  He came to earth so that we could get to know who He truly is as God, with a deep love as a fellow human and a friend. As we sit under His teaching, read His Word, as we learn who He is we get to truly know Him.

 

In John 15:15, Jesus told His disciples, “Now you are my friends”, and He proved it by confiding in them. He said, “I have told you everything the Father told me”. This level of sharing showed His care and it should create joy in our hearts. As we knew Him more, we, will also learn to love Him all the more.

The depth of Jesus’ friendship is also revealed by His sacrifice. Jesus said, in 15:13, “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends”, and then He allowed himself to be crucified for our sake.

 

The friendship Jesus offers us, is, a two way friendship, and not merely a “one-click” event— this friendship is an ongoing two way thing. (To Know Him, we must Make Him Known). He loves us deeply and has invited us into His inner circle, in order that we get to know Him— To know Him and remain in His love. Jesus wants us to know Him in a mighty way, a way that will encourage us to know and trust Him with our day to day struggles. This close connection of knowing Him can minister to our very souls when we feel disconnected from the people in our world. Get to Know Him; read your Bible- He wants to be your God, your Savior, and your Friend.

 

God to person at the portals of Heaven; “Why should I let you into My Heaven?” Person; “Because I know Jesus.” God, “Ok, If you know my Son, tell me all you know about Him.” Person, “ Oh, you got me there, but, let’s see, I know he’s in the Bible, I know he’s in the church, I know he turned water into wine, but that’s about all I know.” God, “SORRY! wrong answer.” Matt. 7:23. “DEPART FROM ME, I NEVER KNEW YOU...”

 

You can know the right answer! But if that question was asked of you today, WHAT WOULD YOUR ANSWER BE?   It’s a serious question!!!

************************************************************************************************************

(Word Study) Question:

"What is apostasy and how can I recognize it?"


Answer:  Apostasy, from the Greek word apostasia, means “a defiance of an established system or authority; a rebellion; an abandonment or breach of faith.”


 

In the first-century world, apostasy was a technical term for political revolt or defection. And just like in the first century, apostasy threatens the Body of Christ today.

AN A.P.B. IS OUT, WOULD YOU RECOGNIZE THE ONE WHO TOOK YOUR PLACE?


A modern parable (PLEASE READ).



One day, a man went as a visitor to a well known larger church. He got there early, parked his car and got out. Another car pulled up near by and parked. The driver got out and said in a rather loud voice, " Hey! I always park there! You took my place!"

 

The visitor got out of his car, went inside for the service, found a row with a few empty seats and sat down. A young lady from the church approached him and stated, "That's my seat! You took my place!" The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but moved over, but still said nothing.

 

After the service, the visitor went back into the Sanctuary and sat down to pray. Another member came up to him and said, "That's where I always sit! Would you mind sitting over there, you see, you took my place!" The visitor was  troubled by this treatment, but still said nothing.

 

Later as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them, the visitor now stood up, and his appearance began to change. His clothing became a simple robe. Horrible scars became visible on his hands and on his now sandaled feet. Someone from the congregation noticed Him and called out, "Hey you there, what’s going on, what’s happened to you?" The visitor replied, as His hat became a crown of thorns, and a tear fell from his eye, "you don’t even recognize me do you? You see, I’m the one who took your place!"

 

When you receive this, say a prayer. That's all you have to do. There is nothing attached, just pray that the ones around you this Sunday will truly recognize the one "who took their place." (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Bringing Up Girls

 

Now that the hubbub of the holidays has passed, we come to a quieter time,  a time to think. As I was surfing the web, I ran across this, written by Dr. James Dobson. I want to share this with you, as I believe this is very relevant for our day to day lives.

 

The rest is from Dr. Dobson. “I want to offer a few relevant comments about boys and girls, and men and women. These thoughts first appeared in my book, Bringing Up Girls, and included one of my favorite statements about child rearing. This chapter is called, “Teaching Girls to Be Ladies.” I hope you like it, especially as it relates indirectly to Valentine’s Day. To begin, I’ll step back a couple of hundred years and get a running start at describing the principles that matter most. The ideas I will share were written two centuries ago, and they are precisely on target today. They were the beliefs and recommendations of the second President of the United States, John Adams. He was a prolific reader, statesman, and author, and he made an incalculable contribution to our country. He was not a perfect man, but he lived by a standard of righteousness throughout his adult life. In his autobiography, Adams wrote a commentary on the subject of moral behavior, which he called “manners.” Though the language is formal and dated, I urge you to read these words carefully and thoughtfully. They carry great meaning for us today.”  “From all that I had read of history of government, of human life, and manners, I [have] drawn this conclusion, that the manners of women [are] the most infallible barometer by which to ascertain the degree of morality and virtue in a nation. All that I have since read and all the observations I have made in different nations, have confirmed me in this opinion. The Manners of Women are the surest criterion by which to determine whether a republican government is practicable, in a nation or not. The Jews, the Greeks, the Romans, the Swiss, the Dutch, all lost their public spirit, their republican principles and habits, and their republican forms of government, when they lost the modesty and domestic virtues of their women. . . . The foundations of national morality must be laid in private families. In vain are schools, academies and universities instituted if loose principles and licentious habits are impressed upon children in their earliest years. The mothers are the earliest and most important instructors of youth”. John Adams- President of the United States of America

 

How insightful it is that Adams placed the responsibility for the essential moral character of the nation squarely on the shoulders of mothers. Fathers play a key role too, of course, but moms are absolutely indispensable. It is their primary task to transmit enduring principles of right and wrong to the next generation. The old proverb, “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world,” is still true. If women grow weary of that responsibility, or if they lose sight of their own moral compass, no other institution or governmental agency will be able to save the nation”.  He also wrote: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” So wrote John Adams, 2nd President of the United States (1797-1801)

ROMANS 1:1


WORD STUDY:  δοῦλος (doulos) – Slave

Word Definition: (doulos); can have no other proper definition other than SLAVE, a man of servile condition.  One who gives himself up to another’s will—those devoted to another to the disregard of one’s own interest.  A Slave (doulos), used by Christ in extending and advancing His cause among men.

 

Romans 1:1, “Paul a servant/SLAVE (doulos) of Jesus Christ, called to be an Apostle and set apart for the gospel of God—”

 

A doulos of Christ Jesus: I like the way the Apostle Paul identifies himself in his epistles. In Romans 1:1, Philippians 1:1 and Titus 1:1, he begins each letter by referring to himself as "a servant or really, a SLAVE (doulos) of Christ Jesus". The English word servant just doesn't do the Greek term justice. Bondservant is better but still truly incomplete. The word in Greek is doulos. A doulos was truly a SLAVE who was the property of the SLAVE (doulos) master. The SLAVE (doulos) master (called kurios) bought the SLAVE (doulos) and thus had complete rights over the SLAVE (doulos). He could order the SLAVE (doulos) to do anything; he could even order the death of the SLAVE (doulos) at no penalty to himself. The doulos was like chattel.

 

Paul explains that all people are slaves (doulos). They are either slaves (doulos) to sin,or slaves (doulos) to righteousness.

                     Where do you stand?

Something Rotten

Judges 2:1-18

You disobeyed My command. Why did you do this? (v.2).

 

A friend of mine recently began searching for a good used car. When we went to check out a 2006 model, the vehicle looked good, pristine. But guess what? Looks can be deceiving, however. When my friend had his mechanic take a peek at the prospective purchase, he found some major transmission problems. If he had bought the car based solely on it’s appearance , it would have cost him thousands of dollars to fix.

 

Ancient Israel also tried to look good on the outside, but they definitely lacked something “UNDER THE HOOD”! Having professed undying loyalty to God and promising that they would serve Him in obedience (Joshua 24:21- 24), they did so only partly—not completely. In Judges 1, we read that the faithful “Lord was with the people” as they drove out the pagans and their idols from Canaan (vv.19,22). But, sadly, the people were DISOBEDIENT and didn’t complete the job. The word failed is used seven times to describe their lack of OBEDIENCE (vv.21-33).

In response, the angel of the Lord appeared before the Israelites and said, “You DISOBEYED My command. Why did you do this?” (2:2). Then he told the people that God would no longer help them in their clearing-of-the-land quest, and they “wept loudly” (vv.3-4). Again, their outward APPEARANCE of contrition looked mighty fine. But soon they “did evil in the Lord’s sight and served the images of Baal” (v.11). God, burning with HOLY ANGER, turned them “over to their enemies” (v.14). Something was rotten in Canaan—it was the hearts of God’s people. So He DISCIPLINED them in love, DESIRING that their hearts would be fully restored to Him.

 

What’s in your heart today? Are you FULLY COMMITTED to God or is there something ROTTEN within your heart that needs to be brought to Him in REPENTANCE?

Thoughts Concerning Faithfulness To Church

 

One day a pastor was asked to define “Faithful Attendance at a retreat Worship Service,” I believe his reply is interesting: “All that I ask is that we apply the same standards of faithfulness to our church activities that we would in other areas of our life. That doesn't seem too much to ask, what do you think? Consider these examples:

 

• If your car started one out of three times, would you consider it faithful?

• If the paperboy skipped Monday and Thursdays, would they be missed?

• If you didn't show up at work two, three or four times a month, would your boss call you a faithful employee?

• If your refrigerator quit a day now and then, would you excuse it and say, ‘Oh, well, it works most of the time’?

• If your water heater greets you with cold water one or two mornings a week while you were in the shower, would it be faithful?

• If you miss a couple of mortgage payments on your home in a year's time, would your mortgage holder say, 'Oh, well, ten out of twelve isn't bad?'

 

If you miss worship and attend meetings only often enough to show you're interested but not often enough to really get involved, are you faithful?”   Hebrews 10:25, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”

ROMANS 1:1


WORD STUDY:  δοῦλος (doulos) – Slave

Word Definition: (doulos); can have no other proper definition other than SLAVE, a man of servile condition.  One who gives himself up to another’s will—those devoted to another to the disregard of one’s own interest.  A Slave (doulos), used by Christ in extending and advancing His cause among men.

Romans 1:1, “Paul a servant/SLAVE (doulos) of Jesus Christ, called to be an Apostle and set apart for the gospel of God—”

A doulos of Christ Jesus: I like the way the Apostle Paul identifies himself in his epistles. In Romans 1:1, Philippians 1:1 and Titus 1:1, he begins each letter by referring to himself as "a servant or really, a SLAVE (doulos) of Christ Jesus". The English word servant just doesn't do the Greek term justice. Bondservant is better but still truly incomplete. The word in Greek is doulos. A doulos was truly a SLAVE who was the property of the SLAVE (doulos) master. The SLAVE (doulos) master (called kurios) bought the SLAVE (doulos) and thus had complete rights over the SLAVE (doulos). He could order the SLAVE (doulos) to do anything; he could even order the death of the SLAVE (doulos) at no penalty to himself. The doulos was like chattel.

 

Paul explains that all people are slaves (doulos). They are either slaves (doulos) to sin,or slaves (doulos) to righteousness.
