Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens

Hannah took a swig from the can. It wasn't like anyone cared what she did anymore. Her parents were caught up in dealing with her little sister's illness; they wouldn't notice if she came home drunk..“What are you doing?”.Hannah startled at the sound of a voice. She spun in a circle but didn't see anyone near her. “Who are you? Where are you?”.“Hannah, what are you doing with your life? Stop.”.As she heard the words spoken directly to her heart, Hannah felt comfort settle over her like a blanket. Still, she said, “Whoever you are, you know nothing about what is going on.”.“There are people who care about you. Your parents care—even though they're busy helping your sister. You can find someone to talk to about all of this. You are loved, and you are not alone.”.Hannah lifted the can toward her lips but paused without taking a sip. She wasn't sure if the voice was in her head or where it was coming from, but the words were getting to her. Her eyes filled with tears. “I just want my parents to pay attention. I want them to notice that I'm hurting too. I want them to remember that they have an older daughter.”.“I love you. Bring your hurt to Me. I am here. Even though your earthly parents are not paying attention, I am. You are My daughter.”.Hannah brushed at her eyes when she heard the voice again. Maybe she wasn't as alone as she felt. Maybe she really was cared for and loved. • Emily Acker.• Have you ever dealt with parents who were distracted? Maybe you had a sibling who was sick, or your parents were facing marriage issues or the loss of a job... .• Read Matthew 28:20, John 11:33-36, Hebrews 4:14-16, and Revelation 21:1-5. Jesus knows what suffering feels like, and He came to the world to live among us, die, and rise again to make all things new and free from brokenness. He is with us through everything we face. As Christians, when we experience abandonment and loneliness, how can these truths comfort us?.• When you feel alone, who are trusted people in your life (such as counselors, teachers, pastors, parents, etc.) that you can reach out to? .[God] himself has said, I will never leave you or abandon you. Hebrews 13:5b (CSB)

Jesus grants his 12 apostles power and authority over demons and diseases and send them out with the good news of his coming kingdom. When the 12 return, he welcomes the crowds and tells the disciples to give them something to eat. They don't know what to do, so Jesus feeds five thousand people with only five loaves of bread and two fish. Peter, James, and John get a glimpse of Christ's glory as they spend time with him on a nearby mountain, but they are instructed to tell no one at that time. On a technical note, we'll end halfway through verse 43 as delineated in the CSB translation.:::Christian Standard Bible translation.All music written and produced by John Burgess Ross.Co-produced by the Christian Standard Biblefacebook.com/commuterbibleinstagram.com/commuter_bibletwitter.com/CommuterPodpatreon.com/commuterbibleadmin@commuterbible.org

Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens

Sometimes I feel like I am not enough. I feel like I am not trying hard enough or doing big enough things with my life. I feel bad for not being as successful as others. You may have days like that too. You might have days when you mess up and you feel like you're not good enough. You might have days when you fail to get into the college you wanted to attend, or you don't land the job you were excited about, or when you feel like the dreams you have for yourself don't compare with the dreams your friends have..But our value in God's eyes has nothing to do with what we have accomplished, or what we are hoping to accomplish. Our value in God's eyes has nothing to do with the way we act or how perfect we are. Our value in God's eyes is based solely on the fact that we are human and He created us in His image (Genesis 1:27). He loves us no matter what we do and no matter what we accomplish. As Christians, we know God's love is unshakable because He became human and died and rose again for us, beating sin and death so that we could be with Him forever (Romans 8:38-39)..God chose to love us before we even turned to Him, and that is a great sign of how He feels about us. We are enough because He loves us. We do not have to accomplish anything to be seen and cared for by Him. • Emily Acker.• Jesus came to die for you while you were still a sinner and an enemy of God. In fact, God loved you so much that He chose to save you before He created the world—before you had ever done anything good or bad (Ephesians 1:4-5; 1 John 4:19). How might it be freeing to know that God's love is not affected by what you do or don't do, and that forgiveness for all your sins is accomplished through Jesus's death on the cross, the ultimate expression of love?.• We all need Jesus's love and forgiveness. To find out more about what this means, check out our "Know Jesus" page..But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (CSB)

Die Adaption des Romans von Erich Maria Remarque, der schon 1930 als ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT verfilmt wurde, ist ein echtes Spektakel.  In diesem Special stellt sich Alper ganz brisante Fragen: Was fasziniert uns am Kriegsfilm? Was ist Propaganda? Warum war IM WESTEN NICHTS NEUES vor hundert Jahren genauso erfolgreich wie die Neu-Adaption heute? Wie sah die Filmlandschaft vor einem Jahrhundert aus?

gwot.rocks - God, the World, and Other Things!

Some have worked hard to disrupt the use of the sinner's prayer in leading people to salvation in Jesus by leveling charges against its use, claim it's not in the Bible, and it can become formulaic, manipulative and man centered. Some of these charges are outright lies, and others are excuses given that lets them off of the hook to diligently share the simple truth of the Gospel and trust God for the results. It is such arrogance and lack of faith in God to think that we can do anything at all to trip up someone to the point that the person is denied access to heaven and instead goes to hell because of us, and or because of a lack of some communication skillset on our part. If we want to see our cities become vibrant and filled with happy people who live caring, productive lives, it starts with us opening our mouths and talking to them about Jesus, in honest, simple ways. “A New Song” by Jan Karon.

Nothing Energizes Like Purpose! Today, Pastor Michael is continuing our study on “overflow”.  Today's topic that ties into overflow is energy.  Energy is a strange thing: when you're young you have time and energy and no money.  When you're retired you have money (hopefully!) and time but no energy!  And then there's that “in-between” time, when you're raising your family and you have no time, no energy and no money!   Where do we get energy? There are plenty of worldly ways: caffeine, exercise, good diet.  But the spiritual side of energizing power is called “purpose”.  When we have purpose it energizes us.   And the ultimate source of purpose?  Almighty God!  Trust in the Lord to give you purpose and He will give you meaning and direction.   (CSB Study Bible Notes) God not only had strength, but he distributed that strength to his people. The criterion for receiving God's strength was not youth but trust. Those who trusted God would have an unlimited source of strength. Verses can be found today in Isaiah 40: 30-31 and 1 Kings 19.

     In tonight's lesson we spent the whole hour discussing how God uses trials to help develop us spiritually. These trials become opportunities for us to grow into spiritual adults and to let our light shine for others to see. Paul wrote, “we exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope” (Rom 5:3-4). James said, “Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing” (Jam 1:2-4 CSB). The Lord uses the fire of trials to burn away the dross of our weak character and to refine those golden qualities consistent with His character. The growing believer learns to praise God in and for the trials, knowing He uses them to strengthen our faith and develop us into spiritually mature Christians. Trials can make us bitter or better, depending on how we respond to them.

Bible Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5:14-23; James 1:5Jasmine and Kayla rummaged through a large jewelry box as they helped their grandmother sort things in preparation for a garage sale. "Look at this pretty necklace!" Jasmine exclaimed. "Is it real gold, Grandma?"Grandma rubbed her thumb gently over the shiny metal. Then she peered at her thumb. "No, honey," Grandma said. "This is just cheap jewelry.""How do you know?" asked Kayla. "It looks like gold."Grandma held out her hand. "See the black that rubbed off on my thumb? Real gold wouldn't tarnish like this.""Is this a diamond ring?" Kayla asked.Grandma took the ring and inspected it. "Well, I'm not really sure about this one. It's probably only cut glass, but I guess it could be a diamond.""Then you should keep it," said Jasmine."Yeah," said Kayla. "You can't sell it at a garage sale if it might be a real diamond.""We'll visit the jewelry store and have some of these checked," said Grandma. "Then we'll know for sure what's good and what isn't--what we should keep and what we should sell."Later that day, they made the trip to the jeweler. The girls and Grandma were delighted to learn that several of the pieces were actually fairly valuable--including the ring, which was a small diamond."I'm so glad you had these checked," said Kayla. "Otherwise we might have thrown out the good stuff and kept the fake.""Sometimes telling the good from an imitation is difficult," Grandma said. "That's true in other areas of life too. For example, things that are wrong can look and sound pretty good. That's why the Bible tells us to test everything and hold on to what's good, but to stay away from what is evil. Since Jesus has freed us from sin, evil goes against who we are and has no place in our lives, so we need to trust Him to help us use the truth of His Word to guard ourselves against Satan's lies." Grandma took two pearl necklaces from her jewelry box. "I want you girls to have these as your 'pearls of wisdom.' Let them remind you to test the key areas of your life--what you do and what you believe--using the wisdom of God's Word. Hold on to the good and toss out the evil imitations." -Brenda DeckerHow About You?Do you have trouble knowing what is good and what isn't? Do your choices agree with what God says in His Word or are they motivated by the people around you? Test everything against the truth of the Bible, and trust God to give you wisdom as you apply what it says to your life. Hold on to what is good and true, and let go of everything else.Today's Key Verse:Test all things. Hold on to what is good. Stay away from every kind of evil.

This is a symbolic meaning of how God blesses us beyond our capacity.  What do we overflow with?  Joy and peace come to mind immediately.  Last week we talked about time.  Today we are exploring what we would love to have too much of: resources (money for example).  Is there such a thing as too much money?  Too many resources?  Resources come in all types but to have too much of them is both a rarity and a blessing.  We have a hard time recognizing when we have an overflow.    Especially an overflow of resources. Now, Michael is talking about olive oil and how it was used for practically everything and was an everyday provision back in biblical times. Oil was mixed with fragrances and used to annoint people on special occasions.  To be anointed was to be in the Lord's favor.   Examining verse five, one way to look at this is, if you could put your blessings in a cup, they would run over the top. Goodness and mercy will be following you always, and you will spend eternity with God. That's the ultimate blessing! So, knowing that you can say, you are blessed in order to be a blessing!  And God is worthy of our trust, regardless of the overflow or shortfall! (CSB Study Bible Notes) In Jewish society oil was a symbol for rejoicing (104:15) and was also used in the welcoming of guests (45:7; 92:10; Lk 7:46). Verses can be found today in Psalms 23: 1-6.  Proverbs 21: 20. Scripture quotations marked CSB have been taken from the Christian Standard Bible®, Copyright © 2017 by Holman Bible Publishers.

     Restore Broken Fellowship with God Through Confession of Personal Sin. All believers sin, and there are none who attain perfection in this life (Pro 20:9; Eccl 7:20; 1 John 1:8-10). For this reason, familial forgiveness is necessary for a healthy relationship with God. David understood the folly of trying to conceal his sins, which resulted in psychological disequilibrium and pain; however, when he confessed his sin, God forgave him (Psa 32:2-5). John wrote, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). God forgives because it is His nature to do so, for He “merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth” (Psa 86:15; cf. Psa 103:8-14). And He is able to forgive because Christ has atoned for our sins at the cross, satisfying the Father's righteous demands regarding our offenses. The apostle John wrote, “My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; 2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world” (1 John 2:1-2). The challenge for many believers is to trust God at His word and accept His forgiveness and not operate on guilty feelings. William MacDonald states: "The forgiveness John speaks about here [i.e., 1 John 1:9] is parental, not judicial. Judicial forgiveness means forgiveness from the penalty of sins, which the sinner receives when he believes on the Lord Jesus Christ. It is called judicial because it is granted by God acting as Judge. But what about sins which a person commits after conversion? As far as the penalty is concerned, the price has already been paid by the Lord Jesus on the cross of Calvary. But as far as fellowship in the family of God is concerned, the sinning saint needs parental forgiveness, that is, the forgiveness of His Father. He obtains it by confessing his sin. We need judicial forgiveness only once; that takes care of the penalty of all our sins—past, present, and future. But we need parental forgiveness throughout our Christian life."[1]      Be Filled with the Spirit. Paul wrote to Christians, “don't get drunk with wine, which leads to reckless actions, but be filled by the Spirit” (Eph 5:18 CSB). If a believer consumes too much alcohol, it can lead to cognitive impairment and harmful behavior. But the believer who is filled with the Spirit will possess divine viewpoint and manifest the fruit of godliness, worship, and thankfulness to the Lord (Eph 5:19-20). Being filled with the Spirit means being guided by Him rather than our own desires or the desires of others. The Spirit's guidance is always according to Scripture. Being filled with the Spirit does not mean we have more of Him, but that He has more of us, as we submit to His leading. Warren Wiersbe comments: “Be filled with the Spirit” is God's command, and He expects us to obey. The command is plural, so it applies to all Christians and not just to a select few. The verb is in the present tense, “keep on being filled”, so it is an experience we should enjoy constantly and not just on special occasions. And the verb is passive. We do not fill ourselves but permit the Spirit to fill us. The verb “fill” has nothing to do with contents or quantity, as though we are empty vessels that need a required amount of spiritual fuel to keep going. In the Bible, filled means “controlled by.” “They... were filled with wrath” (Luke 4:28) means “they were controlled by wrath” and for that reason tried to kill Jesus. “The Jews were filled with envy” (Acts 13:45) means that the Jews were controlled by envy and opposed the ministry of Paul and Barnabas. To be “filled with the Spirit” means to be constantly controlled by the Spirit in our mind, emotions, and will…But how can a person tell whether or not he is filled with the Spirit? Paul stated that there are three evidences of the fullness of the Spirit in the life of the believer: he is joyful (Eph. 5:19), thankful (Eph. 5:20), and submissive (Eph. 5:21–33). Paul said nothing about miracles or tongues, or other special manifestations.[2] Lewis S. Chafer wrote: "To be filled with the Spirit is to have the Spirit fulfilling in us all that God intended Him to do when he placed Him there. To be filled is not the problem of getting more of the Spirit: it is rather the problem of the Spirit getting more of us. We shall never have more of the Spirit than the anointing which every true Christian has received. On the other hand, the Spirit may have all of the believer and thus be able to manifest in him the life and character of Christ. A spiritual person, then, is one who experiences the divine purpose and plan in his daily life through the power of the indwelling Spirit. The character of that life will be the out-lived Christ. The cause of that life will be the unhindered indwelling Spirit (Eph 3:16-21; 2 Cor 3:18)."[3] Charles Ryrie states: "To be filled with the Spirit means to be controlled by the Spirit. The clue to this definition is found in Ephesians 5:18 where there is contrast and comparison between drunkenness and Spirit-filling. It is the comparison which gives the clue, for just as a drunken person is controlled by the liquor which he consumes, so a Spirit-filled Christian is controlled by the Spirit. This will cause him to act in ways which are unnatural to him, not implying that such ways will be erratic or abnormal, but asserting that they will not be the ways of the old life. Control by the Spirit is a necessary part of spirituality."[4]      Walk in the Spirit. Paul wrote, “walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh” (Gal 5:16). In this passage walking is a metaphor for daily living, which can be influenced by God (Deut 5:33; 10:12), other righteous persons (Prov 13:20), sinners (Psa 1:1; Pro 1:10-16; 1 Cor 15:33), or one's own sin nature (Gal 5:17-21). To walk in the Spirit means we depend on His counsel to guide and power to sustain as we seek to do His will. The Spirit most often guides us directly by Scripture. Jesus, speaking of the ministry of the Holy Spirit, said, “the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you” (John 14:26). The Holy Spirit helps the Christian know the Word of God, and to recall Scripture when needed for guidance. The Holy Spirit also works through mature believers—whose thinking is saturated with God's Word—to help provide sound biblical advice for others. Warren Wiersbe states: "The New Testament calls the Christian life a “walk.” This walk begins with a step of faith when we trust Christ as our Savior. But salvation is not the end—it's only the beginning—of spiritual life. “Walking” involves progress, and Christians are supposed to advance in the spiritual life. Just as a child must learn to walk and must overcome many difficulties in doing so, a Christian must learn to “walk in the light.”[5] Charles Ryrie adds: "Constant dependence on the power of the indwelling Spirit of God is essential to spiritual growth and victory. By its very nature, walking is a succession of dependent acts. When one foot is lifted in order to place it front of the other one, it is done in faith—faith that the foot that remains on the ground will support the full weight of the body. You can only walk by the exercise of faith. You can live the Christian life only by dependence on the Holy Spirit. Such dependence will result in the Spirit's control over the deeds of the flesh (Gal 5:17-21) and the Spirit's production of the fruit of the Spirit (vv. 22-23). Dependence on the power of God and effort on the part of the believer are not mutually exclusive. Self-discipline and Spirit-dependence can and must be practiced at the same time in a balanced spiritual life. Dependence itself is an attitude, but that attitude does not come automatically; it usually requires cultivation. How many genuine Christians there are who live day after day without even sensing their need of dependence on Him. Experience, routine, pride, self-confidence all tend to drag all of us away from that conscious dependence on God which we must have in order to live and act righteously."[6]   [1] William MacDonald, Believer's Bible Commentary: Old and New Testaments, ed.

1 Kings 17 Luke 4:16-28 The Lesson of the Inexhaustible Jar. This podcast is adapted from the public domain sermon by Rev. Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Inexhaustible Barrel, which he delivered on Sunday morning, December 18th, 1859, at Exeter Hall, Strand, England. It's core thought is built on 1 Kings 17:16, which reads in the King James version, the Bible translation from which he preached: “And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spoke by Elijah.” Friend, you can count on this: come what may-God's people are safe. In the midst of these historically turbulent times we will not allow agitation to distress us.

Bold DEFINITION: not hesitating or fearful in the face of actual or possible danger or rebuff- courage or daring Beyond the usual limits of conventional thought or action I got a call from a pastor friend one morning, to share what God had told him: “Who do I Love?' he responded, You know Lord: He responded: Who did I take with me to the mount of Transfiguration? Peter, James and John Matt 17:1-9, Luke 9:27-36, Mark 9:2-13 THE BOLD ONES Sure open mouth insert foot...Peter: You are the Christ Mark 9:29, but then Peter corrects Jesus, not so Lord! get behind me Satan! Cuts off the ear of the high priests servant in the Garden of Gethsemane, AND JESUS HAS TO GLUE IT BACK ON! James and John: they ask Jesus if they can call down fire on those who didn't receive Jesus. Jesus REBUKES them. “You don't know what spirit you are of!” Then their mother asks Jesus if the boys can sit on the right hand of Jesus in the resurrection., so they did come by it honestly. Even Jesus nicknames them the sons of thunder..

Brother, first day I moved to Bible College John 10:10 I recognized there was a thief stealing young people's lives, futures. IT DEVELOPED IN ME AN IMPETUS TO GO! Someone has to tell them about our Jesus! Testimony I was a surfer in Hawaii, 54 Kaimao St, Paia. Every morning I would check the surf indicator out my window. Most every night I did 500 push-ups and 300 sit ups. Every evening I was preparing, always looking for waves. Always on my mind, knew all the surf spots, checked the weather, storms, Kona winds or tradewinds. ALWAYS ready. DID I ALWAYS SURF? No! But I was prepared or prepping to be ready... Luke 19:10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and save that which was lost. (CSB seek and save the lost!) Jesus came from the perfect place, heaven if you will, to a dark, dark world to bring the ultimate light, salvation. TO SEEK AND SAVE THAT WHICH WAS LOST, not just seek...but SAVE. HE WAS A CLOSER to borrow a sales term. Bible College- so full of Jesus that I had to get some of Jesus out. To go and tell someone... He gave me direction, two hours on Wednesday between prayer school and church. Oh, I can tell you stories, but I would clock in at 2:30 to 4:30 go home and get ready for church. then, two weeks after moving from Bible to the south of France. The pastors mother asked me. What did you help out with at Bible college? I said this and that, she said, “no, no where did you tell people about ourJesus?” I said I went out every Wednesday 2:30 to 4:30 and sometimes even brought people to church. She said, “Oh that's fantastic, because I go out 2:30 to 4:30 on the Promenade des Anglais and talk to people and hand out tracts and invite them to church... Clock out from America, clock right in to the south of France! Youth camp in Greece, I taught on this same principle. And I challenged all the youth once the camp is over to at least call one of their friends and invite them to the next service. I said if you can't just call somebody, you must come early and go to the streets and tell people about our Jesus. Many did just that and they brought one man to the church. An Iraqi man in his 30's. i've been reading a Book ‘Kiss, Bow, or Shake hands' that said in the Middle East somebody comes to your home, you give them a gift. I just seemed impressed to give him my watch in front of everyone. then I did an altar call after the service, and he gave his heart to the Lord. Oh, you might say, it was because you gave him a watch. But then the Lord says, get him filled with the Spirit he'll need it. He does. eight months later I'm back in Athens. I ask, “Whatever happened to that Iraqi refugee”, and the youth tell me he got so fired up he brought 14 more people back, Iraqi refugees; who got saved and filled with the Holy Spirit and then they all received asylum in Sweden. every one of us has a story, testimony, even if your testimony is that God kept you to never get involved with any of the junk... From Dutch Sheets “Give Him 15” After teaching on the power of history recently, I was asked by a Messianic Jewish rabbi if I knew the meaning of the Hebrew word for “testimony”. I did not. “The word doesn't mean simply to convey something from the past,” he informed me. “Its true meaning is ‘to repeat an action or do it again.' We Hebrews believe,” he continued, “that when you share about what God did in the past, it releases the same power into the present... In other words, power is released to ‘do it again.'” ‘Gift of an Evangelist' A "publisher of glad tidings;" a missionary preacher of the gospel (Ephesians 4:11). This title is applied to Philip (Acts 21:8), who appears to have gone from city to city preaching the word (8:4, 40). Judging from the case of Philip, evangelists had neither the authority of an apostle, nor the gift of prophecy, nor the responsibility of pastoral supervision over a portion of the flock. They were itinerant preachers, having it as their special function to carry the gospel to places where it was previously unknown. The writers of the four Gospels are known as the Evangelists. This is a form of the word ordinarily translated "gospel" (euaggelion), except that here it designates one who announces that gospel to others (euaggelistes, "a bringer of good tidings"), literally, God Himself is an evangelist, for He "preached the gospel beforehand unto Abraham" (Galatians 3:8); Jesus Christ was an evangelist, for He also "preached the gospel" (Luke 20:1); Paul was an evangelist as well as an apostle (Romans 1:15); Philip the deacon was an evangelist (Acts 21:8); and Timothy, the pastor (2 Timothy 4:5); and indeed all the early disciples who, on being driven out of Jerusalem, "went everywhere preaching the word" (Acts 8:4 the King James Version). But Ephesians 4:11 teaches that one particular order of the ministry, distinguished from every other, is singled out by the Head of the church for this work in a distinctive sense. All may possess the gift of an evangelist in a measure, and be obligated to exercise its privilege and duty, but some are specially endued with it. "He gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers." It will be seen that as an order in the ministry, the evangelist precedes that of the pastor and teacher, a fact which harmonizes with the character of the work each is still recognized as doing. The evangelist has no fixed place of residence, but moves about in different localities, preaching the gospel to those ignorant of it before. As these are converted and united to Jesus Christ by faith, the work of the pastor and teacher begins, to instruct them further in the things of Christ and build them up in the faith. At a later time, the name of "evangelist" was given the writers of the four Gospels because they tell the story of the gospel and because the effect of their promulgation at the beginning was very much like the work of the preaching evangelist. In character, the Gospels bear something of the same relation to the Epistles as evangelists bear to pastors and teachers.

Today, Pastor Michael is starting off our New Year with a throwback to a responsorial reading of the Bible.  Michael is reading the 23rd Psalm, likely the most famous verse in the Bible and our church audience reads back to him.  Psalms 23 (CSB) 1 The LORD is my shepherd; I have what I need. 2 He lets me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He renews my life; he leads me along the right paths for his name's sake. 4 Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for you are with me; your rod and your staff — they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD as long as I live. Michael is concentrating on verse 5. What about those days when our cup (money, time or energy) isn't overflowing?  The only way to sustainably  give to others is to have a cup that is overflowing.  We need to rethink and realign how we think of ‘giving of ourselves'.  When we share something of ourselves, there is an ‘outflow'.  That's a good thing, a wonderful thing. So, we're going to talk about overflowing in a study over the next few weeks.  The categories we'll cover are: time, resources and energy.  Today, we're covering ‘time'. Time.  Time seems to be (and actually is, in fact) different in speed; sometimes fast…sometimes slow.  Like when you're having fun and doing things you love: time flies.  But try something you don't like and time stands still, it seems.  Einstein's ‘Special Theory of Relativity' states that the rate that time passes depends on your frame of reference.  The point is, time isn't the same! So with that preamble out of the way, we find Michael in Luke talking about Jesus telling the story of a man going from Jerusalem to Jericho.  Robbers attacked the poor guy and left him half dead on the side of the road.  A priest was walking down the same road and went to the other side, so he didn't have to help the poor guy.  A Levite, walking down the same road, did the exact same thing.  Talk about not helpful, jeesh!   But a Samaritan saw the poor guy and helped him, bandaging his wounds, taking him to an inn and even paying the innkeeper money to help the poor guy.  The definition of a good neighbor!  And a Good Samaritan, too! God gives us opportunities to help others like this; as the Samaritan did.  Do we always take the time to help?   Do we have an overflowing cup, as this message started out with?  We need that to align prioritizing our time. Would we have time to give to the thing God wants us to do or is our schedule full?    When you make God a priority and give Him your time, studying the Bible, spending time in prayer and making time for your spiritual connection with Him, you'll find that cup will get filled back up! (CSB Study Bible Notes) The road from Jerusalem to Jericho, a distance of seventeen miles with a descent of more than three thousand feet in elevation, was a dangerous route through desert country. It had many places where robbers could lie in wait. It is possible that the priest and the Levite . . . passed by on the other side of the road because they thought the wounded man was dead and they would become ritually unclean by touching him, but it is more likely that they were afraid of being attacked by the same robbers or simply did not want to be bothered with the inconvenience of helping the man. Verses can be found today in Psalms 23 and Luke 10: 30-37. Scripture quotations marked CSB have been taken from the Christian Standard Bible®, Copyright © 2017 by Holman Bible Publishers.

Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens

Something I realized about the world recently is how seriously broken it is. I knew this before, but I didn't have any profound personal experiences to help me understand what that truly meant. I can recall times of sadness and hopelessness during difficult circumstances in my life, but those feelings passed fairly quickly. Now, I see that brokenness amplified; it seems to be everywhere I look. Starting with the onset of COVID-19, the world as I knew it, bright and full of possibility, slowly grew dark as COVID-19 dimmed my optimistic perspective. Ironically, it was there in the dark that I could see the world's brokenness so clearly..I learned to live in that darkness, the tension of seeing the world's brokenness and being suddenly confronted with my own. In a way, COVID-19 has felt like a reality check. Beforehand, I was just minding my own business, living my sweet little life. I felt alright, not like I was seriously broken or weak. But when things changed and everyone was under “lockdown,” it was so weird. The fact that we—as a nation, as the world, as the human race—weren't able to defeat this illness was terrifying. I didn't realize until then just how incapable, weak, and broken we really are at the core..But that's when I had to remember God. I had to remember that even though the sickness going around is bad, He's still good. He has compassion on His creation, and He's still working out His good purposes (Psalm 100:5). I had to remember Jesus said that though we will have trouble, He has overcome the world (John 16:33). Because God loves us, Jesus died and rose from the grave for us, and we can look forward to the day He will return bodily to earth and restore His creation. I had to remember that even though I am weak, He is my strength (Psalm 28:7). And as I recall His Word, He's using it in my life daily, renewing my joy. • Emily Rondello.• How have you seen brokenness on display, either in your own life or in the world around you?.• Especially when we're confronted with pain and suffering, God invites us to draw near to Him and receive His comfort. Why is it important for us to take time with God, remembering the hope He gives us in the gospel? (If you want to know more about the gospel, check out our "Know Jesus" page.).• If you want to dig deeper, read Psalm 77 and follow its model by telling God about the hard things you're experiencing, and remembering who He is and some of the things He has done..“I [Jesus] have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the world.” John 16:33 (CSB)

Matthew 25:14-30 (CSB) 14 “For it is just like a man about to go on a journey. He called his own servants and entrusted his possessions to them. 15 To one he gave five talents,[a] to another two talents, and to another one talent, depending on each one's ability. Then he went on a journey. Immediately 16 the man who had received five talents went, put them to work, and earned five more. 17 In the same way the man with two earned two more. 18 But the man who had received one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground, and hid his master's money. 19 “After a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 The man who had received five talents approached, presented five more talents, and said, ‘Master, you gave me five talents. See, I've earned five more talents.' 21 “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You were faithful over a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Share your master's joy.' 22 “The man with two talents also approached. He said, ‘Master, you gave me two talents. See, I've earned two more talents.' 23 “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You were faithful over a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Share your master's joy.' 24 “The man who had received one talent also approached and said, ‘Master, I know you. You're a harsh man, reaping where you haven't sown and gathering where you haven't scattered seed. 25 So I was afraid and went off and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have what is yours.' 26 “His master replied to him, ‘You evil, lazy servant! If you knew that I reap where I haven't sown and gather where I haven't scattered, 27 then[b] you should have deposited my money with the bankers, and I would have received my money[c] back with interest when I returned. 28 “‘So take the talent from him and give it to the one who has ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have more than enough. But from the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. 30 And throw this good-for-nothing servant into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'

It's Christmas! Today, Pastor Michael is all about Christmas and he's piggybacking off the story of the Grinch's heart.   In our culture, today, we use the heart for a lot of emotive responses. In the Hebrew culture of Ezekiel, they didn't express emotions via the heart, they used the bowels (whoa!). The Bible uses the heart as the center of the intellect; not emotional responses.  When the Lord tells us we are going to get a new heart, He's giving us a new way of thinking, understanding and how to respond.   So true change of heart is more than an emotional switch. Michael also brings up a fantastic point about hardness of our own hearts, towards others.  “Hardness in your heart will never create softness in another person's heart.  It'll just hurt you more”.   (CSB Study Bible Notes) 36:26 The statement I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you reflects the teaching of Dt 30:6-8—that the Lord will circumcise the hearts of his people so they may live in obedience. This radical new creation (Ezk 11:19; 18:31; Jr 31:31-34) was necessary to break the people's bondage to the cycle of sin and retribution emphasized in Ezk 20. Regeneration is a secret act of God by which he imparts new spiritual life to dead hearts. Verses can be found today in Ezekiel 36: 26-27.
