 "They…spend their time gossiping…meddling in other people's business." 1Ti 5:13 NLTThe Bible says gossip is nothing less than "meddling in other people's business." Jon Zens says: "I have watched friends and..families suffer untold pain because of gossip.…[the] information someone dumps on you without your consent and consent of theperson [involved]. [lt] can be true, partially true, or completely false. It can be motivated by good intentions, but it always contains negative... information…[and colors] people's perceptions of [someone] unjustly. The person being torn down is outof the loop [because] talebearers usually avoid speaking directly to the one they are demeaning." One Christian leader said, "The Christian army is the only one that shoots its wounded." So set the standard for your own life by evaluating people based on yourexperience with them, not on what somebody else says. Secondhand information is notoriously unreliable and misleading, and it violates Christ's command to "treat people the...way you want them to treat you" (Mt 7:12 NAS). When you have been hurt by tittle- tattle, you can relate to the wisdom of those words. Rumors and innuendos may seem innocent and come to you subtly, but even if someone isn't operating inmalice, their motive is irrelevant. Spreading gossip defies walking in love and looking "for the best" in others (1Co 13:7 MSG). A. W. Tozer said, "Never pass anything on..that will hurt [somebody]. 'Love covers... a multitude of sins' (1Pe 4:8 NIV), and the talebearer has no place in God's favor. If you know something that would hurt one of God's children…take it out. bury it and say, 'Here lies in peace the story about mybrother! God will take care of it."Support the show

Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens

It is not always easy to talk to others about Jesus. Yet all around us, there are people who need to hear about Jesus, and sometimes, they even invite us to share the gospel with them. How can we have the courage to do so? Two of Jesus's followers, Peter and John, found themselves in this kind of situation. After Jesus ascended, they met a man in the temple who could not walk and was asking for money. Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk” (Acts 3:6), and the man was healed! All the people there were amazed, and Peter began to speak to them about Jesus. But the Jewish religious leaders “were greatly disturbed because the apostles were teaching the people, proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection of the dead” (Acts 4:2), and they put Peter and John in jail overnight to question them the next day. As Peter and John stood before the council, they did not shrink from witnessing about Jesus, but they courageously declared the gospel. This would not have been easy to do if God had not given them the courage, especially because the people on the council were the highest-ranking Jewish religious authorities. After Peter spoke, the elders and the rulers of the people were astonished, because they knew Peter and John were common men, uneducated. How did these two fishermen, who had no formal training in the Scriptures, gain the courage to say that they witnessed the death and resurrection of the Messiah? Then the council recognized that these men had been with Jesus. Peter and John had been close to Jesus during His ministry on earth. And after Jesus ascended, He sent the Holy Spirit to be in them. Because of this, they had the confidence and the courage to speak about Jesus (Acts 4:8). We can also have the courage to witness for Jesus, because the same Spirit is in us, as people who have put our trust in Jesus (Ephesians 4:4). Like the disciples, we can spend time being in the presence of our Lord. And this will cause us to gain confidence and boldness to be His witnesses to those who do not know Him. How do we spend time with Jesus? There's no formula, but reading the Bible and praying are a good place to start. As we experience God's love, we will have the courage to tell others about Him, because we have been with the Lord. • Enid Adah Nyinomujuni • In Acts 4:23-31, what did these people, the first Christians, pray for? How did God respond? ...they took note that these men had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13b (NIV)

Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith
What If Our Weakness Is Our Biggest Strength?: Natalie Grant & Mary Marantz

Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith

Maybe you've discovered yourself so aware of your apparent weaknesses that you couldn't imagine how your weaknesses could be strengths. Throw in things like financial difficulties, an unexpected diagnosis, or loss of someone close to you, and it's easy to think that life is nothing more than different shades of failure. Moments like these invite us to hear Jesus' words to Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Our guests this week know weakness in its various forms.    Natalie Grant faced big hurdles to becoming a successful, award winning Christian musician only to find herself battling thyroid cancer in her forties. Would cancer take away her ability to sing—and if it did, was that really what defined her? Author and speaker Mary Marantz is grateful for what her childhood in rural West Virginia taught her, and carried on the ethic passed on to her from the hard-working logging community where her father made ends meet. In writing her story, Mary hopes that others will find themselves in some of the struggles she had, and that they may also find their weakness might be their biggest strength.    Links, Products, and Resources Mentioned: Jesus Calling Podcast Jesus Calling Jesus Always Jesus Listens Past interview: Emily Ley Upcoming interview: Janine Urbaniak Reid 2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV   Natalie Grant  thyroid cancer Truth 4Him  Avalon Bernie Herms Jesus Calling for kids www.nataliegrant.com   Mary Marantz  Yale Law School  Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots Dirt Pearl S.

And when we choose to say yes in the small, it's often when people begin to trust us with the big.” - Natalie Grant “Oftentimes in my own life of faith, my experience is that God asks for the yes before He gives the details.” - Natalie Grant ”I can remember being very little, being four or five, and feeling like I knew God as the best friend. He was the green of the grass down to the very pigment. He was a bird stepping into flight. He was the feel of cold, hard ground. How when you broke it up in your hands, you couldn't forget how it felt. He was color and freedom and fire and dirt.” - Mary Marantz “We might know or get a glimpse of where we're headed when we're little, but we're not ready for it until there's time.” - Mary Marantz ________________________ Enjoy watching these additional videos from Jesus Calling YouTube channel: Audio Playlist: https://bit.ly/2PrbuwH Video Playlist: https://bit.ly/2PsmEkJ What's Good?

"The kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruits of it." Whoa. The sentence that Jesus pronounced was terrifying. But who did it condemn? Was God finally, and with ample justification, nullifying His covenant with Israel? This has been a subject of confusion for some - and some of that confusion seems to be intentional. Let's listen closely to this altercation between Christ and His opponents, in Part 2 of, Who is In the Kingdom?

I was hungry. Lost. Out of options. So, I decided to go, go and try. I knew I didn't deserve his help. I was not sure I even had the courage to ask. I knew I could not look him in the eyes. I practiced what I would say to him on the long, hungry walk. I would tell him I was unworthy...unworthy to be called his child. Then I would ask to be his servant. At least if I was his servant, I would have food to eat and somewhere to live. After many days, I found myself in familiar country. Soon, I saw his place out in the distance. And then, then I thought I saw someone coming up the path. The sun was setting behind them, so I couldn't tell who it was. They were running... Maybe this wasn't a good idea. I felt my stomach tighten and wondered if I should run. But wait, there was something familiar in the silhouette. It was my father, and he was running to me. Before I could say anything, he put forth both of his hands and grabbed my arms and pulled me close. He kissed me affectionately on my cheeks and then pressed my face to his chest. I think he was kissing my hair. Through the emotion tightening my throat I tried to say my speech, but he interrupted me, calling to the servants and giving them directions. He guided me back to the house. Servants came and put his best robe on me. As it wrapped around me, I felt wrapped in his love. I began to relax for the first time since I had left so many years ago. Then they put a ring on my hand and shoes on my feet. And then he even told them to prepare to celebrate because I had come home. I was home. Everyone knew I did not deserve his kindness or his love, nevertheless I was loved. Surrounded in love. He had watched for me. He ran to me. He embraced me. I was loved. • Jeri Howe • This story is based on a parable Jesus told in Luke 15:11-32. Many people focus on the son in this passage, but try reading it focusing on the father and his love. What do you notice? • Now read 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. How does the picture of the Father's love in Luke 15:11-31 compare with Paul's teaching on love? What aspects of love in these two passages make you curious? Which stir longing in you? • Do you want to come home? You can right now. You can come home to God the Father who made you. Jesus has made it possible through dying on the cross and raising from the dead. If you put your trust in Jesus, the good news is that you can be adopted as God's child—today. Simply pray and tell Him you want to come home and receive His love. (See our "Know Jesus" page for more.) • If you've put your trust in Jesus, you can ask to experience God's pursuing, embracing, never-failing love anytime. We can ask for this with confidence because Romans 5:5 says, “Hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” If you're ready, take a moment to pray and ask God to reveal His love for you. “So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” Luke 15:20 (NIV)

The Lord found him in a desolate land, in an empty wasteland where animals howl. He continually guarded him and taught him; he continually protected him like the "little man" of his eye. Deut 32:10 Protect me as you would protect the pupil of your eye. Hide me in the shadow of your wings. Psalms 17:8 Keep my commands so that you may live, and obey my instruction as your most prized possession. Proverbs 7:2 The Hebrew phrase refers to the pupil of the eye, perhaps by the idiom “the little man in [the] eye.” The term אִישׁוֹן (ʾishon, “pupil”) appears to be a diminutive from אִישׁ (ʾish, “man”). The saying may have arisen because the pupil will make a small reflection of the person looking into another's eyes. Because of the importance of protecting the eye from harm, the “pupil” of the eye “has the idea of something precious that was to be guarded jealously” (NIDOTTE 386 s.v. אִישׁוֹן). Traditionally this Hebrew idiom is translated into English as “the apple of your eye” (so KJV, NAB, NIV, NRSV); a more contemporary rendering would be “as your most prized possession.” The point is that the teaching must be the central focus of the disciple's vision and attention. The sun will no longer supply light for you by day, nor will the moon's brightness shine on you; the Lord will be your permanent source of light – the splendor of your God will shine upon you. Your sun will no longer set; your moon will not disappear; the Lord will be your permanent source of light; your time of sorrow will be over.” Isaiah‬ ‭60:19-20‬ ‭ ʾîyshôwn, ee-shone´; dimin. from 376; the little man of the eye; the pupil or ball; hence the middle (of night):—apple [of the eye], black, obscure. James Strong, A Concise Dictionary of the Words in the Greek Testament and The Hebrew Bible (Bellingham, WA: Logos Bible Software, 2009), 12.I will humiliate his enemies, and his crown will shine.” Psalms‬ ‭132:18‬ ‭NET When this verb is intransitive, it means “to give or make light”; the past tense is shone {the stars shone dimly}. When it is transitive, it means “to cause to shine”; the past tense is shined {the caterer shined the silver}. Go for the 0++ life beloved!

Episode 150 - Why does it matter to delight in God? Why does God command us to delight in Him and enjoy Him forever? Doesn't that sound like the whinings of an egotistic tyrant, an insecure bully in search of affirmation, or a boastful narcissist? Stephanie invites us to discover the deeper meaning of delighting in God, and why it actually is the most logical, reasonable, and yes, delightful thing in the world. God is not human--it means He is the ultimate standard in all things beautiful and perfect and lovely and, yes, delightful. So, when He enjoins us to delight in Him, He is really inviting us to enjoy the ultimate best in all things. Doesn't sound so egotistic after all, does it? Jesus provides the perfect example for us--to absolutely no one's surprise! He role-models a life of perfect humility and delight in God. So we're taking a good look at delight in God as revealed in the light of the knowledge of the glory of God ... in the Face of Christ Jesus! That's one of the most foundational verses that Paul ever wrote, and it is one of our guides this week. "God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God's glory displayed in the face of Christ." - 2 Corinthians 4:6, NIV.   Delighting in the glory of God. Does this concept strike you as reserved for spiritual contemplatives? What if, instead, it proved the highly practical, deeply foundational perspective you need right now? Why does God's glory even matter in our day and age? How can we learn from Jesus to make His glory our true North and lifelong quest? What keeps us from fully stepping into this God-ordained purpose for our life? How do we kindle delight for God on a daily basis? And, once we have embraced God's glory as our heart's true delight, how can we then come alongside others? Join us to cultivate a sincere delight for God's glory, rooted in an honest, hard look at the depth of our need, and in the much deeper Reality of His grace. Trace the glory of God through Scripture and in your own life. Behold the exact radiance of God's glory, revealed in Jesus. Learn to see yourself as Christ does—through the lens of the Father's love at the cross. Jesus offers to overwhelm our deadly self-centeredness with His resurrection power. He carries us every step of the way, even as He calls us to true humility on the path to glory. Who has time to cultivate the delight that comes from pondering the glory of God? And yet, nothing could be more urgent today. Marthas and Marys, Peters and Johns—we are all invited to dare to dream of a lifestyle of God-centered delight. Nothing could be more practical.

PROTECT YOUR HEART WITH GOD'S TRUTH My child, listen and be wise. Keep your heart on the right course (Proverbs 23:19 NLT). There're things that some people do that invite demons into their lives without them knowing. They yield themselves to the influence of demons through certain kinds of music, dance, among several other things. For example, Christians who visit pornographic websites open themselves to demons. In the Old Testament, God forbade His children from looking at the nakedness of others (Read Leviticus 18). Such things aren't acceptable to God. They're not consistent with the life of righteousness. Think about it: How does Christ come into the heart of a man? When you believe in Jesus Christ and confess His lordship, He comes into your heart in an instant. That's the same way a man can open his heart to demons when he exposes himself to things that are inspired by demons. Protect and keep yourself from all unrighteousness. The Bible says, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness” (Romans 1:18). Refuse to harbour unclean thoughts. Use the Word to purify your heart of anger, bitterness and malice. The Word of God is a cleanser. As you meditate on the Word, you're cleansed from ALL unrighteousness: “Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you” (John 15:3). Live as a Christian. Our theme verse says to keep your heart on the right course, on God's truth. Protect your mind and spirit with the Word. In Proverbs 23:26 (NIV), God says, “My son, give me your heart and let your eyes delight in my ways.” Let your heart delight in His Word, in His righteousness, and live a life worthy of Him—pleasing Him in every way. Hallelujah! CONFESSION Satan, the god of this world, has nothing in me! The Lord has given me dominion over the flesh, to guard my heart and mind with all diligence. No unwholesome thought can take root in my heart. My spirit, my mind and my body are yielded to the Word and purified by the Word every day, in Jesus' Name. Amen. FURTHER STUDY: || 1 John 2:16 For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. || || Psalm 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. || || Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life. || DAILY SCRIPTURE READING 1-Year Bible Reading Plan=> John 8:48-59 & 2 Kings 1-3 2-Year Bible Reading Plan=> 1 Corinthians 10:22-33 & Proverbs 15

God's Kingdom, as it used to be. Our study of the Kingdom of Heaven needs a historical foundation. In the future, there's the Millennial Kingdom - we understand that. In the present... it's complicated. But we should be able to look to the past to see what God's rule looks like, and what happened. And "what happened" wasn't all Adam's fault - nor Eve's. That's what we'll look at, today. Pastor Jim's new sermon is called, Knowing About the Kingdom.

WHISPER #4 | Pain | May 22, 2022Bob Schwahn | Lead Pastor 1) I am with you in your pain…The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all... Psalm 34:18-19 (NIV) C.S. Lewis – The Problem of PainWe can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world. 2) I understand your pain…During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered… Hebrews 5:7-8 (NIV) 3) I will redeem your pain…Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NIV) C.S. Lewis - Mere ChristianityAim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither. 4) Praise me in your pain…At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.” In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing. Job 1:20-22 (NIV) Listen to my words, Lord; consider my sighing. Psalm 5:1 (NIV) Reflection Questions:1) What have been some of the most challenging seasons of pain in your life? 2) How have seasons of pain and darkness impacted your relationship with God? Positively and/or Negatively?3) Were you able to hear God’s whispers in those seasons? Explain.4) How has God used pain to speak to you and shape your life?5) What are some lies that we believe in the midst of our pain that can make the pain even more challenging? What truths from God do we need lean on in the midst of our pain?6) How does knowing that Jesus lived a life of pain and suffering change the way we view our own suffering?7) Read 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 and the C.S. Lewis quote… Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

1. MAKE SURE YOU ARE FOLLOWING THE RIGHT PERSON   Ruth the Moabitess asked Naomi, “Will you let me go into the fields and gather fallen grain behind someone with whom I find favor?” Ruth 2:2 CSB   Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble. Proverbs 13:20 NLT   A person's heart plans his way, but the Lord determines his steps. Proverbs 16:9 CSB   2. THE DILIGENT REAP THE HARVEST WHILE THE IDLE REAP SCARCITY   She asked, ‘Will you let me gather fallen grain among the bundles behind the harvesters? ' She came and has been on her feet since early morning, except that she rested a little in the shelter.” Ruth 2:7 CSB   Work brings profit, but mere talk leads to poverty! Proverbs 14:23 NLT   Idle hands make one poor, but diligent hands bring riches. The son who gathers during summer is prudent; the son who sleeps during harvest is disgraceful. Proverbs 10:4-5 CSB   The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. 2 Chronicles 16:9 NLT   3. DON'T CHASE AFTER FLEETING URGES   Then Boaz said to Ruth, “Listen, my daughter. Don't go and gather grain in another field, and don't leave this one, but stay here close to my female servants. See which field they are harvesting, and follow them. Ruth 2:8-9 CSB   There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death. Proverbs 14:12 NLT   4. FAITHFULNESS MUST PRECEDE FRUITFULNESS   Boaz answered her, “Everything you have done for your mother-in-law since your husband's death has been fully reported to me: how you left your father and mother and your native land, and how you came to a people you didn't previously know. May the Lord reward you for what you have done, and may you receive a full reward from the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge.” Ruth 2:11-12 CSB   When she got up to gather grain, Boaz ordered his young men, “Let her even gather grain among the bundles, and don't humiliate her. Pull out some stalks from the bundles for her and leave them for her to gather. Don't rebuke her.” So Ruth gathered grain in the field until evening. She beat out what she had gathered, and it was about twenty-six quarts of barley. Ruth 2:15-17 CSB   YOUR CONSISTENCY DETERMINES YOUR CHARACTER AND YOUR  CHARACTER DETERMINES YOUR DESTINY.   But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33 NIV   Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33 NLT     5. SURRENDER IS THE PATHWAY TO REST   So she lay down at his feet until morning but got up while it was still dark. Then Boaz said, “Don't let it be known that a woman came to the threshing floor.” And he told Ruth, “Bring the shawl you're wearing and hold it out.” When she held it out, he shoveled six measures of barley into her shawl, and she went into the town. Ruth 3:14-15 CSB   Anyone trusting in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like foliage. Proverbs 11:28 NLT   TRUE PEACE IS DISCOVERED WHEN CONSCIOUSLY RECOGNIZE OUR PROVIDER CONSISTENTLY   Look at the ravens. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, for God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than any birds! “Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? Luke 12:24,27-28 NLT   Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing. Psalms 34:10 NLT   Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father…James 1:17 NLT   6. WHEN WE TOTALLY SURRENDER TO GOD HE WILL TOTALLY FIGHT FOR OUR WELL-BEING!   She went to her mother-in-law, Naomi, who asked her, “What happened, my daughter?” Then Ruth told her everything the man had done for her. Naomi said, “My daughter, wait until you find out how things go, for he won't rest unless he resolves this today.” Ruth 3:16;18 CSB   So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God's Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God's children. And since we are his children, we are his heirs. Romans 8:15-17 NLT DO YOU WANT THE LEFTOVERS, THE BUNDLES, OR THE FIELD? Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do. James 1:6-8 NLT

Luke 10:25–37 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” 27 He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” 28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.” 29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” 30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ 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.” (NIV) 4 Ways We Bring Hope To The Hurting     1. Don’t pass by      1. Inconvenience 2. Prejudge James 2:15-17 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. (NIV) 3. We don’t believe in people   4. It’s not my responsibility   2. Have pity   Luke 10:33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. (NIV) Matthew 9:36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. (NIV)  Luke 15:20  So he got up and went to his father. “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. (NIV)  God wants us to have compassion on the lost, prodigal sons and daughters.    Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (NIV)   3. Heal people don’t hurt people                                   Luke 10:34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. (NIV)  4. Do what you can with what you have        Luke 10:34-35 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ (NIV) Proverbs 11:25 A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

Send. Me. Isaiah 6:1-8 (NIV) – [1] In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. [2] Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. [3] And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” [4] At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. “Cherubim function primarily as guards or attendants to the divine throne. Seraphim appear only in Isaiah's vision and there attend God’s throne and voice praises.” (Holman Bible Dictionary). Genesis 3:24 (NIV) – [24] After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden CHERUBIM and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life. Psalms 99:1 (NIV) – [1] The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the CHERUBIM, let the earth shake. “Only here are the seraphim mentioned in Scripture. The Hebrew word means ‘to burn’ and relates these creatures to the holiness of God. This is why they repeat, ‘Holy, holy, holy’ before the throne of God. Some students think that the seraphim are the ‘living creatures’ described in Revelation 4:6-9.” (Wiersbe Commentary) Revelation 4:6-9 (NIV) – [6] Also before the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. [7] The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. [8] Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings. Day and night they never stop saying: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.” [9] Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 1. We worship along with angels. 2. We must be holy. “Holiness is moral and ethical wholeness or perfection; freedom from moral evil. Holiness is one of the essential elements of God’s nature required of His people. Holiness may also be rendered ‘sanctification’ or ‘godliness.’ The word holy denotes that which is ‘sanctified’ or ‘set apart’ for divine service.” (Nelson’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary) Hebrews 12:14 (NIV) – [14] Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be HOLY; without HOLINESS no one will see the Lord. 1 Peter 1:15 (NIV) – [15] But just as he who called you is HOLY, so be HOLY in all you do; [16] for it is written: “Be HOLY, because I am HOLY.” “Holiness in the highest sense belongs to God and to Christians as consecrated to God’s service, and in so far as they are conformed in all things to the will of God. Personal holiness is a work of gradual development.” (Easton's Bible Dictionary) 3. We need to see His glory. “Glory” (kabod) literally means a heaviness or weightiness; figuratively, it represents the unchanging and manifest beauty, splendor, honor, and majesty of God. “The Hebrew word translated glory connotes weightiness, substance, and reality. It is not the flimsy, ephemeral quality we often associate with the English term glory. It is more the idea of royal grandeur.” (NLT Study Bible) Exodus 40:34-35 (NIV) – [34] Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the GLORY of the LORD filled the tabernacle. [35] Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud had settled upon it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. John 1:14 (NIV) – [14] The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his GLORY, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 (NIV) – [17] Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. [18] And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's GLORY, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing GLORY, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 4. There will be shaking. Hebrews 12:25-29 (NIV) – [25] See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? [26] At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” [27] The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain. [28] Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, [29] for our “God is a consuming fire.” 5. Where there’s smoke… Exodus 19:17-19 (NIV) – [17] Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. [18] Mount Sinai was covered with SMOKE, because the LORD descended on it in fire. The SMOKE billowed up from it like SMOKE from a furnace, the whole mountain trembled violently, [19] and the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder. Then Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him. Revelation 15:7-8 (NIV) – [7] Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God, who lives for ever and ever. [8] And the temple was filled with SMOKE from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.

(Bilingual) このメッセージでは朱馬牧師が柔和で高ぶらない人へ与えられる極上の幸せについて以下の2つのポイントから話します。 In this message Ps Shiva talks about Makarios for the meek in these 2 points: (マタイ 5:5 JCB) 柔和で高ぶらない人は幸いです。全世界はそういう人のものだからです。 (Matthew 5:5 NIV) Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.  (ヨハネ 13:3-5 JCB) イエスは、父がすべてのものを与えてくださったことと、自分が神のもとから来て、ま;た神のもとに帰ろうとしていることを知り、 (4) 夕食の席からゆっくり立ち上がり、上着を脱ぎ、手ぬぐいを取って腰に巻かれました。 (5) そしてたらいに水を入れ、弟子たち一人一人の足を洗い、腰の手ぬぐいでふき始められたのです。 (John 13:3-5 NIV)  Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; (4) so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. (5) After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him. 1. イエス=柔和で高ぶらない人 Jesus The Meek One (ピリピ 2:5-9 JCB) 私たちに対するキリスト・イエスの態度を見ならいなさい。 (6) キリストは神であられるのに、神としての権利を要求したり、それに執着したりはなさいませんでした。 (7) かえって、その偉大な力と栄光を捨てて奴隷の姿をとり、人間と同じになられました。 (8) そればかりか、さらに自分を低くし、犯罪人と同じようになって十字架上で死なれたのです。 (9) しかし、それゆえに、神はキリストを高く天に引き上げ、最高の名をお与えになりました。 (Philippians 2:5-9 NIV) In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: (6) Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; (7) rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.(8) And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross! (9) Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 2. 神様は柔和で高ぶらない人を高く引き上げる! God Lifts Those who Are Meek (ヨハネ 13:4-5 JCB)夕食の席からゆっくり立ち上がり、上着を脱ぎ、手ぬぐいを取って腰に巻かれました。 (5) そしてたらいに水を入れ、弟子たち一人一人の足を洗い、腰の手ぬぐいでふき始められたのです。 (John 13:4-5 NIV) so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. (5) After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him. (1 ペテロ 5:6 JCB) あなたがたは、神の力強い御手の下で自分を低くしていなさい。ちょうどよい時に、神はあなたがたを高く引き上げてくださるでしょう。 (1 Peter 5:6 NIV) Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.

There are times when we are in the midst of a really heavy and difficult situation, and something happens that causes us to laugh. We could be mourning someone we lost, but a memory of them brings us joy or is funny to us. God knows what it takes to get us through tough times, and He is always there to give us the help we need. When we have anxiety, God is there to console us and give us joy. When we are sad, He is there to wipe our tears and maybe even provide us with a little humor to keep us going. When we are down, He reminds us that the world is in His hands and everything is going to work out. In the end, Jesus will return to dwell with His people, and “‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain” (Revelation 21:4). And Jesus also promised His followers, “Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). We are never alone in any kind of difficult situation. God is always with us. He knows what we are going through, and He is helping us. It can feel good to know that, as we seek God, He is going to provide for us, no matter what we face, and He will always make sure that we have moments of peace and joy in the midst of all the struggles. • Emily Acker • Have you ever felt God with you in a really hard time? • God invented laughter and humor! Can you think of a time you were struggling but something funny made you feel a little better? Consider taking a moment to thank God for this. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:19 (NIV)

"You had to be there." There are some experiences that can't be understood from the outside. This is especially true of the Kingdom of God. First, a natural person can't understand spiritual things, as Paul wrote to the Corinthians. But there is a second reason, and that is the intention of the King. He refuses to open His secrets to those who only want to scoff. To wind up Jim's sermon The Constitution of the Kingdom we've left the Sermon on the Mount, but we're still in the Gospel of Matthew.
