What Will Your Legacy Speak?

When Emerson was born, one year ago on the 23rd of this month, I started to think a lot more about my legacy. All of a sudden, there was a little boy here who, if something happened to me, would only ever know his mommy indirectly. I started writing letters to him on the day of his birth so that he would be able to someday (whether I'm physically there or not) "hear" his mama's voice, speaking to him of the love I have for him, the moments we are experiencing together, and the things I hope and pray for his future. I have also been giving more consideration into the other artifacts of my life might speak to him. What memories would Matt and others who know me be able to share with Emerson? What stories would the pictures taken of and by me tell to him? What might he learn from my writings or the things I've accumulated through my life and held onto for various reasons?
In these considerations, I've come to a greater appreciation for what is said of Abel in the book of Hebrews:
"By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks." (Hebrews 11:4)

 I don't think I've ever stopped to consider before what kind of life Abel might have lived had his brother not taken it from him. He didn't need a long life filled with great deeds to leave a lasting legacy, though. In spite of the death of his physical body, the tale of his obedience lives on as an eternal testament to his righteousness and faith. And as we read and reflect on Genesis 4 today, we can still "hear" the simple truth taught by Abel's sacrifice: Obedience is not determined by what we think but by what God says (Hebrews 11:4). Just consider, for example, how different King Saul's life might have gone if he had looked at Abel's legacy and learned this very thing! (See 1 Samuel 13 & 15 for just two instances that would have gone a lot differently.)

So now I turn back to my own legacy. Regardless of if I live many more years or if I die today, I will leave a legacy behind - one that will either point my son (and others) toward heaven or lead into the darkness of the path toward hell. If I were to die today, what would my legacy speak? Would it speak of faith and love and kindness, or would it hiss out stories of selfishness and bitterness? Would it declare the greatness of God's blessings, or would it focus instead on the "I wishes" and "I wants" that were never achieved? Would it exhort others to turn to God and submit to His rule, or would it put forth the lie that our own thoughts and desires are the truer guides? Would my legacy be one that could be rejoiced over, or would it be another sad cautionary tale? 

I believe I am not alone when I say I have much to work on in regard to my legacy. And I thank God that I have been given the time to do so. Would you join me today in considering what your legacy will speak? Will you do it today, while you still have time?

"Working together with Him, then, we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says, 'In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you.' Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation." (2 Corinthians 6:1-2)

"Come now, you who say, 'Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit' - yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, 'If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.' As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin." (James 4:13-17)

2016: Walking Worthy of My Calling

 "I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called..." (Ephesians 4:1)

There are certain days that seem to prompt us to reflect more than usual on our life and the direction we are going and/or would like to go. Birthdays are like that and, of course, New Year's Day. In the waning days of 2015, people around the world are coming up with any number of resolutions that they are determined to stick with in the next year - resolutions to do more, resolutions to do less, resolutions to get healthy or finally start on a dream or maybe just appreciate life more each day. Across the world, there are Christians determined to take a stronger stand for their Lord this year, to more fully reflect the beauty of His glory in their lives. Across the world, people are taking note of where they have been, where they are, and where they want to be, and they are making plans to get there in this next year.

I have never been good with New Year's resolutions. I always start well, with sincere intentions to "actually stick with it this year," and yet that determination always seems to dwindle away in a matter of months, if not weeks or even days. In a lot of cases, this hasn't been such a big deal. It doesn't matter in the long run, after all, if I never do finish that novel or lose those extra few pounds or learn that new language. But I am ashamed to say that my track record with spiritual resolutions has not fared much better than any of the others. While I can honestly say that I have seen a good amount of spiritual growth in myself over the last few years, I know that I would be so much further along the right path if I had not had so many stops and starts and the bouts of discouragement that will inevitably come when you live your spiritual life this way.

So this year I am trying something new. Instead of the individual specific resolutions, I am resolving myself to a way of life, the way of life that God has always prescribed for me actually - walking worthy of my calling. This is not some appeal to an inherent destiny, but a determination to live the life God has called me to.

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30)

Jesus has called me (and called you) to a life of humble service, a life that offers contentment and rest through trust in His care, His work, and His way. He has called me to lay aside all the sins and cares and worries that I have allowed myself to be weighed down by and to take up His yoke instead. Responding to and walking worthy of the call of my Lord and Savior means:
  • Putting off my yoke of anxiety and putting on His yoke of trust in His desire and ability to provide (Matthew 6:25-34).
  • Putting off my yoke of flawed time management and putting on His yoke of redeeming the time I am given (Ephesians 5:15-16).
  • Putting off my yoke of lending my ear to the world's wisdom and putting on His yoke of letting the word of God guide my every thought, word, and action (Psalm 119:11, 105).
  • Putting off my yoke of selfishness and putting on His yoke of whole-hearted service to my family (Proverbs 31:10-31). 
  • Putting off my yoke of excuses and putting on His yoke of diligent action for the sake of His church (Ephesians 4:11-16).
  • Putting off my yoke of keeping to myself and putting on His yoke of sacrificing for the sake of others (Luke 10:25-37).
  • Putting off my yoke of fear and putting on His yoke of full use of the skills and opportunities He has given me (Matthew 25:14-30).
And even as I type out this list, I know that there is SO MUCH MORE than could and should go on it. Walking worthy of the Lord's call will touch and even transform every single area of your life:

 "And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." (Colossians 3:17).

So this is my resolution for 2016 - to walk worthy of the calling to which I have been called. When I achieve this, then the Spirit says in both Colossians 1:10 and 1 Thessalonians 2:12 that I will be walking worthy of my God, who sent forth the call. How could I possibly hope to achieve anything higher than that in 2016? I pray you'll also dedicate yourself to walking worthy of God and the call He has issued forth for you in this coming year.

"Beyond What You Are Able..." (1 Cor. 10:13)

"No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it."
~1 Corinthians 10:13~

There is a great deal of comfort in that verse. To know that I will not have to face anything that I cannot handle has always given me a great amount of assurance for the future, as well it should. But I have to admit, I don't believe that I have always taken the proper perspective on this verse. You see, Paul does say here that we will not face temptation beyond what we can handle. But then you pair this statement with this passage...

"Concerning this thing [the thorn in Paul's flesh] I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
~2 Corinthians 12:8-10~

Hmmm... Well, but see, Lord, I'm not like Paul. I just don't think I can handle all that...

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
~Philippians 4:13~


Yes, there's the truth of it right there. When God talks about what we can handle, it's not really about what we - on our own - have the strength to face,or what we might believe we have the strength to face. It's rather about what HE has the strength to face. And that's where it can get a bit scary because I know my God, and I know that He has the strength to face anything. So when He says that I won't be tempted beyond what I can handle, what He's taking into account is that if I give Him full reign in my life (Galatians 2:20), I too can face anything. And that right there is the scary part. Yes, there is great comfort in knowing that God can and will equip me to face anything this life throws up against me, but the fear starts to rise up in me when I think about all the awful things that could be included in the category of, well, 'anything.' 

 And that's exactly when I need to stop myself and revisit the words of Psalm 47...

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear..."

Throughout this Psalm, we see the immense power of our great and glorious God. And we see that this all-powerful God is always there to stand with us in the midst of our storms and to see us through to bright skies once again, whether in this life or in the next. Yes, our Lord is a "very present help" to all who heed His exhortation - "Be still, and know that I am God."

Do I truly know that He is God? Is His divinity more than just a wishful hope to me? I ask myself these questions because I'm afraid that my life too often reflects the wrong answer. Too often, I see myself responding to threats, or even potential threats, with such fear and anxiety that I can't help but conclude that I must be harboring some doubts in my heart. Is it any wonder that the Holy Spirit compares the doubting heart to a wind-tossed sea and points out the instability of such a life (James 1:6-8)? 

I pray that God will forgive me for these doubts and strengthen me as I seek out and eradicate them. And I pray that all of us who have let fear, anxiety, and worry take root in our hearts will do the work necessary to uproot them so that the seed of God's word can thrive and produce its wonderful fruit (Mt. 13:18-23; Gal. 5:22-23). May our minds be consumed not with worry but with the heavenly home that Jesus has prepared for us (Jn. 14:1-6; Phil. 3:12-16). For if we follow faithfully the path He has left for us, what really is there to fear?

"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, 'For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.' Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, not things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
~Romans 8:31-39~

Suffering for Good or Evil?

"For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil."
- 1 Peter 3:17 -

Peter would certainly know, wouldn't he? He did, in fact, experience suffering both for doing good and for doing evil. A quick comparison at what he suffered and why, and especially his response in each case, clearly shows him living the truth of this statement out in his daily walk.

Let's look first at his suffering due to his sin. Perhaps the most well-known recorded instance of sin in Peter's life is the account of his denial of Jesus as he waited to see the outcome of the trial. Even with Christ's warning shortly before, Peter fell headlong into Satan's trap and denied his relationship with Jesus three times. But what did he suffer then? The people did not take him up and hang him next to the Lord he denied. In fact, it doesn't seem like there were any physical consequences for Peter's sin. Rather, he felt such shame and guilt over what he had done that he went out and wept bitterly. He knew his words had separated him from His Lord, even at His Lord's most difficult hour. Oh, Peter certainly suffered for doing evil in this case.

Now consider what we see of Peter in the book of Acts. He endures prison, beatings, and the threat of death for his stand for the truth. He would eventually be killed, just as Jesus had told him he would be.The physical suffering he faced was real and very serious. Yet, what do we find him doing all throughout the book of Acts? Rejoicing and carrying on in the work that Jesus gave him to do! He may have been suffering physically at the hands of those who stood against the gospel, but his conscience was clear. He knew he was in right standing with his Lord, so he could endure whatever the world threw at him.

I believe if Peter were here today he would tell us that the physical consequences suffered for living righteously are minute in comparison to the spiritual consequences - both temporal and eternal - suffered for living in wickedness. In fact, that is exactly what he said in 1 Peter 3:17. And doesn't this match exactly what Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 4:16-5:1? Paul describes the suffering he faced as "light affliction" when viewed with eyes set on eternity. (And lest we forget what Paul is calling "light affliction" here, read 2 Corinthians 11:23-28 for an account of things he had suffered.)

Yes, when we have eyes set on eternity (Colossians 3:1-4; Hebrews 12:1-4), we will be able to view our suffering for righteousness' sake a cause for joy and catalyst to further work (Acts 5:40-42). And with eyes set on eternity we will see sin for what it truly is and what it does to our soul and to the Lord that we love (Hebrews 10:260-31). And this realization will makes us weep tears of sorrow every bit as much as Peter did.

Let us not suffer so needlessly but rather heed Peter's words. If we are to suffer, let it be for righteousness' sake. Let us gladly endure these light afflictions, turning from wickedness and setting our eyes on heaven and the rest promised there.

A Blessing Like Abigail

Then David said to Abigail: ‘Blessed is the Lord God of Israel, who sent you this day to meet me! And blessed is your advice and blessed are you, because you have kept me this day from coming to bloodshed and from avenging myself with my own hand.”  (1 Samuel 25:32-33)

Are you a blessing to the people you come into contact with each day? Am I? How wonderful it would be if what David said of Abigail here could be said by those around us! I know I certainly want to be a blessing to those around me, but I’m afraid that far too often I fall short of the example that Abigail set many years ago.

A little context for those who might not be so familiar with the story… David is on the run from King Saul when he comes across the land of Nabal and asks for assistance. Nabal is very wealthy and could easily afford to spare some provisions for David and his men. It would have been only right for Nabal to help David, since David and his men had offered protection to Nabal’s servants and flocks while they were in the fields. More than that, David is the anointed of God. Nabal, however, is a very foolish man and rudely refuses to give any provisions. As a result of his foolishness, Nabal almost brings death upon himself and all of his men. Thankfully, Nabal’s wife, Abigail, is a great deal wiser than he is. When she is made aware of the situation, she sends out provisions for David and his men and goes before David herself to plead for mercy. In this display of great wisdom and humility, she spares the lives of her husband (though he is struck down by God a few days later) and his men, as well as sparing David from taking vengeance for himself. No wonder David said what he did! Abigail truly was a blessing to every one she came in contact with that day!

So now I must ask myself again: Am I a blessing to the people I encounter each day?

Am I a blessing to my husband? Do I use wisdom in my dealings both with him and for his sake? Do I look for opportunities to better serve him in our relationship? And if he is struggling with any personal weakness, do I help create an atmosphere that would encourage growth and improvement, or do I act in such a way to push him further down that path? Unlike Abigail, I have been blessed with a wonderful husband who daily seeks and works to become more the man that God wants him to be. Do I follow with all humility and submissiveness in these pursuits? If Abigail could humbly serve a foolish man like Nabal, surely I can serve a good and godly man like my husband! So do I?

Am I a blessing to those who rely on me? When the lives of Nabal’s men were on the line, they knew that they could safely trust in Abigail to save them. This tells me that she had proven herself to be wise, trustworthy, and compassionate to those men in times before. And she didn’t let them down when the stakes were so high. But what about me? At any point in my life, there have been people whose well-being or success depended on my choices and my actions. It might have been a partner on a school project, an employer, my Bible class students and their parents, those I worship with… and now there’s a little boy we are expecting to be born in less than three months. I have had any number of people put their trust in me to do what is right and to act in their best interests. Have I been worthy of this trust?

Am I a blessing to those who hear me speak? David clearly saw the wisdom of Abigail’s words and followed them, recognizing them for the blessing that they were. I think here of the Proverbs 31 woman who, “opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness” (v. 26). Each day brings a multitude of opportunities for me to express my opinion, whether vocally in-person or digitally through such things as email, Facebook, and this blog. These opportunities are only going to increase exponentially when I have a little child with me in the house all day. The question at the end of the day is, and will continue to be: Are those who heard me speak today any better for having done so? Or am I simply piling up idle words that will stand as a record of foolishness against me in judgment (Matthew 12:36-37)?

Am I a blessing to God? And do I bring others to give praise to God? This is the most important of them all, isn’t it? I would hope that every day of my existence would be a blessing and source of joy to God, but I know that there are so many days that I fall short of this. This saddens me, but it should also serve as a driving force for me to do better the next day (or the next hour, or even the next minute). In fact, every additional breath I take is another opportunity to step up and be the servant of God that He desires me to be. And this is what will enable me to be a blessing to all those I mentioned before – my words, actions, and example drawing them nearer to God as I draw nearer to Him myself.

We aren’t told very much at all about the rest of the days of Abigail’s life, but we know that on this day she was a true blessing to all around her. May I commit myself to have more days like the one we see from Abigail here. May I live such that I will be a blessing to all around me. And may God be praised for each and every moment that He gives me in this life to do so.

Psalm 23:5-6 – A Content Sheep with Hope of Eternity

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Psalm 23:5-6)

I am learning that consistency in posting with a series like this isn’t necessarily my strong point, so I’m going to finish up the posts on Psalm 23 today, covering the last two verses. Throughout the passage, David has emphasized the absolute completeness of his Shepherd’s care. (“I shall not want.”) These last two verses continue and finish out that thought by describing God’s overwhelming provision for His people at all times and in all places.

In his text, Mr. Keller again emphasizes here the work that it would require of the shepherd to provide such care to his sheep. He has led them to a place of sufficiency, often in the midst of various dangers, and now the sheep are able to enjoy his provisions. Even here, though, his work is not done. His is a job of constant vigilance – against the threat of predators, against the everyday ills that could wear down his sheep, and against the self-destructive tendencies of his own flock. For example, flies would swarm the sheep, and scab (caused by a parasite) would pass swiftly from sheep to sheep as they rubbed up against one another. The attentive shepherd would head off such nuisances with a liberal and continual application of oil upon the sheep’s head. Mr. Keller even speaks of his application of axle grease to the heads of his rams to prevent them from causing damage to one another as they fought during mating season. The shepherd’s work is hard, yet at the end of the day he is rewarded with sheep that are thriving under his care.

Now, consider the Shepherd that David is describing here. He is the perfect Shepherd. He knows His sheep’s every need before it arises, and He makes perfect provision for them – “my cup runs over.” And consider the confidence and utmost contentment of one who can say, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.” If you are a Christian, a faithful child of God, this is your Shepherd. This is the One you raise your voice to in the morning, the One you bow your knee before every night. This is the One you cry out to in your deepest distress and the One you sing praises and thanksgiving to in the midst of your joys. This is the One who knows your every need and has made perfect provision for each of them so that you can live a life of contentment and peace before Him. What a glorious blessing this is!

But you know what… The passage does not stop there.

A shepherd may be completely dedicated to caring for his flock, but at some point those sheep are going to die and his care for them will end. Not so with the Shepherd described in this passage. Rather, David says, “I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” This Shepherd’s care will not end at the death of His sheep but will continue on through all eternity. And as we gather together with our God in His heavenly home, we will have the full experience of all that He has offered us in this life – full rest, full peace, full sustenance, full protection from every threat or trial or heartbreak. And we will be forever in the presence of the One who guided us so faithfully through our life on earth into the life beyond.

As we go through our day, may we continually seek to follow the Lord as our Shepherd. May we submit ourselves to His will and follow the paths He laid out for us through His word. May we examine ourselves closely to be sure that we are actually sheep in His flock. If we find that we have never joined His flock or have wandered from it, may we not waste a single second in doing what is needed to come back to Him. The blessings of His care are too precious to forsake, and the risks of being outside His fold are too dangerous to ignore. And once we are a true and obedient member of His flock, may we be content in His care on this earth, with hearts set toward eternity with Him.

Psalm 23:4 – The Valley of the Shadow of Death

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4)

It’s a little funny that the verse that speaks most clearly to the danger faced by the sheep is also the verse that contains perhaps the greatest promise of peace in the whole passage. Isn’t that true, though, that the ultimate peace that can be obtained in this life is not peace from the existence of trials but peace while in their midst? And this verse makes it abundantly clear that kind of peace is only available to me if God is walking by my side.

Mr. Keller (A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23) makes note in his book that shepherds would often have to lead their sheep through such valleys in order to reach higher ground and new food sources. Thus, in making application to our spiritual walk he states, “The disappointments, the frustrations, the discouragements, the dilemmas, the dark, difficult days, though they be shadowed valleys, need not be disasters. They can be the road to higher ground in our walk with God.”

What a beautiful and comforting thought! When we find ourselves struggling through those valleys of trials, temptations, and discouragements… When we see danger and death bearing down on us from all sides… When the darkest days of our lives weigh heavily on our souls, we need not be afraid! Like David, we can live above the fear of evil’s power over us by putting our full trust in God.

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ So we may boldly say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?’” (Hebrews 13:5-6)

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)

We don’t even have to live in fear of death itself, since in Christ we have victory even over the grave.

So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory.’ ‘O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?’ The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:54-57)

So if we have God walking by our side, we really have no reason to fear evil. Even in the face of trials and torments, we can live the more abundant life that our Shepherd promised to give us (John 10:10). And we can live in anticipation of the time to come when we will be able to dwell in the courts of our God and enjoy the perfect peace He will provide us there.

And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3-4)

Yes, David found peace and comfort and strength in the presence of God, but he doesn’t leave the thought there. He goes on to explain further what specifically brought him this peace and comfort and strength – the rod and the staff of God. The rod and the staff were the shepherd’s tools for guiding, examining, correcting, and protecting the sheep. Thus, the sheep that would need fear no evil was the one who could trust in its shepherd’s effective application of his rod and his staff, not just against approaching dangers but also against the sheep’s own self-destructive decisions.

God’s word acts as His rod and staff, revealing the temptations of this world for the lies they are and exposing the signs of weakness and sin within our own lives (Hebrews 4:12). Within the Bible, we can find everything we need for guidance, for self-examination, for correction, and for protection against the attacks of the devil (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Peter 5:8-9).

We cannot afford to walk through the shadowy, death-filled valleys of our life without God beside us. But we cannot expect His presence if we reject His word and all that it provides. Let us all commit to study His word, to do what it says, and then to realize the comfort of our Savior in all seasons of our lives.
