No Room

Mark Hughes (Church of the Rock) - Fri, 12/23/2016 - 22:30

Trying to get more space for our large Christmas day meal, I suggest that, “We should put the nativity scene onto a smaller table and move it into the corner”.  That would free up a large amount of space in the living room, enabling the dining room table to overflow into that area.  We would then have lots of freedom to entertain, eat, and celebrate.  In light of this, I couldn’t help but think about the space these Christmas decorations take up.

 

There is the tree, the wreaths, the presents, the special festive cups and mugs, Christmas décor was everywhere.  These adornments are all nice but now we were getting to the place of organizing the meal, arranging the table.   We need room for the family, the guests, and the food, especially the food.  The concept of moving the nativity crèche would increase the capacity for our celebrations.                As we pondered how best to solve the dilemma, I thought,  “This is the way it was the First Christmas.”  The coming of the Christ Child was very inconvenient, it did not fit nicely into anyone’s plans:

  • Mary as an unmarried virgin was pregnant – a social faux pas for that culture and time.
  • Joseph, Mary’s husband to be, contemplated silently putting away Mary and the child she was carrying.
  • Herod the king, in planning to kill the child, definitely did not want the child around.
  • There was no room in all of Bethlehem, so the mother and child-to-be were pushed into a little space in a barnyard manger.

Then I was challenged, would I react the same way?  In the midst of all the good plans and rushing, would I push Jesus into a small corner of my activities, my mind, and even out of sight?  In discussing with my wife Susan, we made a decision.  “Let’s keep the nativity scene on the big table, let’s keep it in the awkward place in middle of the family room.  Let’s not push aside the visible presence of Jesus in this festive season, because it makes our life temporarily easy.”

As we pondered other aspects of Christmas we realized that it is easy to push Jesus into a small corner of our lives, when this season is supposed to be all about Him.  It may be awkward or inconvenient to:

  • Attend a Christmas Eve or Christmas Day service;
  • To pray before the family meal – knowing that there are non-Christians in the midst;
  • To talk about what Jesus has done in your life;
  • To take time to be interested in others when they are so boring or self-consumed;
  • To minister to those that are wounded or hurting.

In our business and plans, it will be easy to push Jesus into the back corners of our activities, lives and hearts.  Yet the challenge of Christmas is that Jesus came as “Emmanuel – God With Us”.  Will we make room for Him, will we let Him work in us and through us?

Have a wonderful Christmas, experience the life and power of Jesus Christ within you.  God Bless you, Pastor Keith & Susan Eberhard.

Lost

Mark Hughes (Church of the Rock) - Fri, 12/23/2016 - 00:25

It was January of 1990, I was with a group of friends traveling to Hong Kong and then onto China.  Contacts in Hong Kong greeted us at the airport and helped us get to our place of lodging.  We were staying the night in the Fanling region of the city.  Some of the group were in house unit 658 and the rest of us were in 612, they were not far from each other.  The housing units were in clusters of circles with a small courtyard in the middle of each circle of houses.  From unit 612, where I was staying getting to 658 was a simple path of walking across the center court, going through the yard of the end house, which brought you to the next circle of houses, you turned to the right and there was unit 658.

That evening my part of the group left early to meet with the rest at 658 while I remained to clean up. Confident of the direction I left 612, crossed the green space and entered into the yard of the end house.   I exited the back of the yard, turned right and looked up, the unit number was in the 640’s.  I was in the wrong circle of houses.  Somewhere in the simple process I had gone the wrong direction. I retraced my steps to get back into the 610 sphere of houses, only to find that I was in the 630 circle of houses.  Going through another yard brought me into the 590’s.

By now it was dark, a misty haze was settling over the area, it was drizzling and I was getting wet.  Worse of all I realized I was lost.  Now I knew that where I was going was a wonderful place.  I knew that others would be there, whose fellowship I could enjoy.  I knew that the warmth of a building was better than the misery of being outside.  Yet in spite of all this knowledge I was lost.  Worst of all I realized that even if I found someone to get directions from, all the people in the area spoke Cantonese, I only spoke English. The houses were now like a confusing maze to me.  In desperation I called out to God, that He would help me.

As I turned around a neatly bearded man with a tall stature approached, in a British accent he asked if I needed help, after which he lead me directly to unit 658.  Once there I enjoyed a great time of fellowship, prayer, sharing of testimonies and sensing God.

Going back would be easy I’d just go with the rest of the group, besides, by know I was also refreshed in the directions.  However, in a unique sequence of events, everyone from my unit left early as I stayed longer to pray with another person.  As I ventured, out retracing my “proper steps” I came right up to 612A and 612B but, in no way could I find unit 612.  I did remember someone saying that in an afterthought of construction 612 was not alongside 612A or 612B, which I needed.  As much as I retraced my steps, looked around and searched, I found that again I was lost.  Again I prayed and this time God sent a lady who spoke perfect English, she easily guided to the right location.

This Christmas season we might ask, “Why was Jesus born”, or “Why did God come to earth in the form of a man?”  Just as I was lost and in need of a guide, so too all of mankind, in a sense, is lost.  We know that we are in some form of darkness, we know that there can be something good ahead of us, we just don’t know how to find it.  We are in need of someone who can speak our language, someone who actually knows the way to get there, someone who will take us by the hand and lead us.

In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”  Jesus is the one who came to help us in our lost and confused state.  To find or obtain a true relationship with God by our own ability would be too difficult.  So God came down from Heaven to guide us.  Then, in a similar way it is not good enough that we get the directions once and then I could be on my own without help.  We need to consistently walk with Jesus that He would be guiding us every step of the way.

Let’s take a moment to ask Jesus Christ to guide ourselves into a closeness with God the Father and to help you in every aspect of your life.  Then thank Him for the help that He will give to you.

Re-post: Questions for Mary, the Mother of Our Lord

Just Call Me Pastor - Mon, 12/19/2016 - 11:00

Saint Luke tells with amazing brevity the story of the Angel Gabriel’s announcement to the Virgin Mary: she is miraculously to be the mother of the Messiah. Mary’s response, her subsequent visit with cousin Elizabeth, and her beautiful song of worship, are all recorded with few words (Luke 1:26-56).

But, when the news broke, were responses in family and community as completely serene as the account would suggest?

After all, how could such an announcement fail to land with jarring impact first on her parents, then on Joseph, to whom she was pledged to be married, and then on the town of Nazareth where she lived?

Here are some questions Luke, the physician, does not answer.

How did Mary’s mother find out about her virgin daughter’s angel-announced pregnancy? Did Mary tell her? If so, what was her immediate response? Imagine the response today if a teenaged girl should say to her mother, “An angel appeared to me yesterday and told me I’m going to have a baby without any man’s involvement.” Would she just say, “Fine,” and go on emptying the dishwasher? And how did her father take the news?

Then there’s Joseph, the man she’s pledged to marry. How did he find out? Matthew tells us that, so far as Joseph was concerned, Mary “was found to be with child. . . .” Did her parents tell Joseph? Or did Mary?

We know that, however he got the news, at first he was downright upset. His immediate impulse was to break the engagement (actually to divorce her according to Jewish customs at the time). But he would do so as quietly as possible so as not to subject her to public disgrace.

Was Mary in anguish during that time over what his decision would be? An angel had to appear to Joseph in a dream to settle him down. He then took Mary into his home though they were not intimate, Matthew tells us, until after the baby was born. (Matt. 1:18-25).

Then I’m curious especially about Mary’s trip to be with her aged cousin, Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56). It is likely that Elizabeth and Zechariah, her husband, lived in Hebron, a town some distance south of Jerusalem.

The distance from Nazareth to Hebron could have been 80 miles or more. How does this carefully chaperoned young woman (according to the customs of the times) get from her home to that distant place? One assumes she walked, as all poor people did back then.

Going straight south, she would have to travel through the hostile territory of Samaria. If not, to avoid this course she may have crossed the Jordan south of Lake Galilee and traveled along the eastern side to another crossing near the Jericho. From there, there would be a long upward climb to Jerusalem, perhaps for 15 miles, and then still a good stretch of travel further south to reach Hebron.

So, did her father go with her? Or was she sent in a caravan of travelers? And, where did she stay overnight on the three- or four-day trip? There were no Holiday Inns.

Then, after three months with Elizabeth, she returned to her home town, Nazareth. How did the community respond? Her pregnancy would then be in its second trimester. So, when her mother sent her to the well for water and she carried the vessel on her head, did her peers snicker behind their hands as she passed by? If so, how did Mary deal with such scorn?

I believe Luke, the careful historian, would have known the answers to these questions. He says (Luke in 1:3) his research had been thorough. Years later he may have visited with Mary in Ephesus where the Apostle John is said to have taken her to live. If so, he would have had the details firsthand.

Then, why does he leave such information out? It must be because he isn’t writing a novelette to portray human conflict and struggle. He’s writing a chapter in the story of redemption. He’s reporting on the Virgin Mary’s willingness to be the servant of The Almighty in bringing into the world a Messiah. Joy is the dominant note.

Only later, a man named Simeon, a devout worshiper of God, prophecies to her that later in her life her suffering will be great as a part of this mission (Luke 2:35).

So, what does all this say about Mary? There’s no trace in the gospel accounts that Mary was to be worshiped, or even treated as in any way unique from the rest of humanity. She is simply a deeply devout young Jewish girl who has kept herself pure, and is selected by the Almighty to be the bearer of the Messiah. She is immediately willing to carry that burden.

We can’t answer the many questions Luke’s story makes us want to ask. But, during Advent, Mary, the virgin, should be held up as a model for purity and openness to God’s will for service to Him. Her response to Gabriel’s announcement rings down the centuries: “I am the Lord’s servant, and I am willing to accept anything he wants. May everything you have said come true” (Luke 1:39 NLT).

In Spite Of A Broken Heart

Mark Hughes (Church of the Rock) - Mon, 12/12/2016 - 22:00

In life there are many situations which can take place around us which have the affect of breaking our heart.  Whether relational stresses, disillusionment with unfulfilled promises, or discouragement through the trials of life, our hearts can be made vulnerable.  In Acts 21 the Apostle Paul is about to go to Jerusalem, even though he has been told that his arrival there would mean that he would be tied up and delivered to gentile authorities.  The future is not positive for Paul so the people gather around him, weeping and begging him not to go.  It is in this context that Paul responded saying, “Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” (Vs. 13).

In these verses having a broken heart was more than a pain in the chest.  It was more than a broken relationship, the phrase “broken heart” conveys the thought of:

  • to deprive of strength and courage,
  • to dispirit,
  • to incapacitate for enduring trials
  • to be weakening in determination so as to prevent going on with one’s duty.

Paul was sensing that his resolve to move forward was languishing.  The emotions and efforts of others were not encouraging him, instead they were causing him to focus on the same aspects of fear which were gripping the hearts of his friends.  He was becoming undermined in his resolve to move forward.  How did Paul cope in this situation, what gave him the strength to press onward?

In the face of what would normally dishearten and discourage, Paul focused on a cause, a purpose, that was greater than the looming fear of possible struggles.  “I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus”.  Paul saw that the name of Jesus, the promotion of the good news of Jesus, was greater than any suffering or struggles which he might go through.  Paul was not about to get caught up with the personal challenges of his life in such a way that the Kingdom of Jesus suffered.

Many of us may have “broken heart” experiences.  Yet our broken hearts can be healed as we set our focus on fulfilling the greatest goal in life, that of helping many to embrace the name and power of Jesus.  Take some time to ponder how you might better proclaim the name of Jesus to others.

Advent: Do You Want to Experience it More Deeply?

Just Call Me Pastor - Mon, 12/12/2016 - 11:00

To add depth to your faith and ardor to your devotion to the Lord this Advent season, spend extra time pondering the first sentence of John’s Gospel.

He writes, “In the beginning was the Word….” — on the face of it a perplexing line. Why didn’t he just write, “In the beginning was Jesus?” That’s who the fourth gospel is about, after all.

Or, John could have written: “In the beginning was the Messiah.” That term would be familiar to the Jews but not so familiar to others. He wanted both Jews and Gentiles to understand what he had to say.

Here’s the background:

When John wrote his Gospel, he was an old man living in Ephesus, where there were large populations of both Greeks and Jews.

To make his message attractive to the Greek mind while at the same time remaining true to Jewish thought, he had to find the right word to introduce Jesus to both.

Here’s why “Word” worked for his Greek readers:

More than five hundred years earlier, a Greek thinker named Heraclitus had lived in Ephesus. This man wrestled with the notion that all of existence was in flux. Nothing seemed to stand still.

To illustrate, he noted that one couldn’t step into the same river twice. If you step into the water, then step out of the water, then step back in, he reasoned, you are not stepping into the same river.

But if everything was in process of change all the time, Heraclitus pondered, why was all of existence not in chaos? He concluded that there was some unifying, ordering principle or influence over all. He called this the Logos – which meant “word” or “reason.” This idea had survived in Greek thought for more than 500 years.

Jewish thought had a similar idea. God’s “word” is presented in the scriptures over and over again as imbued with power. The story of Creation bears this out. In Genesis 1, eight times we read: “And God said” — and each time, His word brought an additional component of creation into being.

Jeremiah writes, “Is not my word like fire?” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29). From the Psalms we read, “By the word of God were the heavens made” (Psalm 33:6). William Barclay writes, “the phrase the ‘word of God’ became one of the commonest forms of Jewish expression.”

In the light of all this, John concluded, Logos (word), was the best expression to open the mind of the Greek reader to who Jesus was and why he came, and at the same time to be true to the Jewish understanding as John talked about Christ — the Messiah’s first coming.

By saying “in the beginning,” John adds a new and deeper understanding for both Greek and Jew. In this way, he asserts that Jesus always existed; he is eternal!

And, he further adds the staggering news that, indeed, “The Word was God.”

The sentence with which John begins his good news account can stir us deeply: Jesus, the Word, is eternal. He is God, and in him God came into our sphere as an infant. We discover who he is and we call him Jesus, our Lord.

That truth, if reflected on prayerfully again and again during Advent, will deepen faith and Christian joy.

The Source For Ministry

Mark Hughes (Church of the Rock) - Sat, 12/10/2016 - 00:00

As believers in our Lord Jesus Christ we are all called to minister to others, to serve in our Lord’s kingdom and to impact others with the truth and love of our Lord Jesus.  Yet many times servants of God, His ministers, are frustrated because of the lack of results.  There is a desire for fruitfulness, there is much labour given and yet they see few positive outcomes or little fruit coming from their efforts.  The consequence of expecting results from ministering within our Lord’s kingdom and yet not seeing the anticipated desires can bring about discouragement, self condemnation or the judging of others to be the problem.

In 2 Cor 4:1 the Apostle Paul  talks about the ministry that he had received.  “Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart.”  Note that Paul did not say that the ministry came because of his personal greatness, his communication skills, his drive or determination, his financial status or from any other attribute which Paul possessed.   It was not the skill of the individual, but because of the mercy of God that a ministry has been imparted.

Properly understanding the source of a ministry calling can be very liberating.  Because God calls and sends people into ministry the results are not dependent upon ourselves alone.  The calling to ministry came from the mercy of God.  This means that we are now free from our own pressures and expectations to succeed.  The success does not hinge upon our past ability, skills or performance  but rather upon the mercy of God who calls us.  Any positive results that are obtained are also a consequence of His mercy.

Realizing how one’s ministry comes from God’s mercy should keep us from losing heart, but it should also free us from actions or pressures to try to make ministry happen.  Paul continues to say in 2 Cor. 4:2 that understanding how our ministry comes from the mercy of God, helps us to “renounce secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.” Deception, or distorting the truth is not needed to get results.  We do not need to water down the truth to please people.  The results come from God’s working through His mercy.

You may feel pressured to measure up, to minister more effectively, to be more fruitful.  You may feel that the expectations upon you are too great for you to be able fulfill them.  Take time to focus upon God’s mercy and His impact in your life.  Then thank Him, for through His mercy, God will work through you.

Do You Not Remember?

Mark Hughes (Church of the Rock) - Fri, 12/09/2016 - 22:15

Jesus and the disciples are crossing the Sea of Galilee when Jesus warns the disciples to “take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees”.  The disciples immediately think that Jesus is reprimanding them because they had not brought any bread with them. In response to their discussion Jesus asks, “Do you not remember when I broke the loaves for the five thousand … or for the four thousand?” (Mark 8:13-21)
We could easily condemn the disciples for not remembering how marvelously Jesus had blessed the little amounts that were present, how He fed the multitudes and how that resulted in baskets of left over bread.  But perhaps we too are similar in nature.  God in His mercy and grace shows up, forgives us, comes into our lives, provides us with His Holy Spirit and the comfort of His word and yet we easily forget these blessings. God promises us eternal blessings and yet we only see the here and now struggles.  He has answered many of our prayers and yet at another time we question why He might seem to be distant.

What Jesus was using as a teaching situation, the disciples understood to be correction and reprimand.  The disciples, being aware of their inadequacies, their faults then interpreted the instructions of Jesus in light of their weakness.  They felt that God was rebuking them, instead of seeing the loving instruction that God was giving to them.

In another boating incident, when Jesus was asleep in the midst of a storm, the fearful disciples wake Him saying, “do you not care that we are perishing?” (Mark 4:38)  Jesus was right there in their midst yet in the eyes of the disciples it seemed like Jesus did not care about the situations and the distress that was surrounding the disciples.  The disciples failed to see how Jesus was actually going through the storm with them.  Though the disciples wanted the storm removed, Jesus’ care was shown by being in the midst of the storm with them.  The disciples were fearful and lacked faith (vs 40) because they could not trust that all would be okay with Jesus in their midst. The disciples were flustered by the storm, Jesus was at peace in the storm.

In the struggles in our lives, do we remember what Jesus had done in the past, do we draw strength from these past experiences?  Do we see the comments or the lack of comments from Jesus as being corrections or do we see them as being loving instructions?  Do we see the activity of Jesus, or the lack of activity of Jesus, as showing that He doesn’t care or that He has no concern for us in our situations?

Take a moment to remember, with thanksgiving, what Jesus has already done for you.  Ask Jesus to help you see that He is not only with you in the storm, but that He is actually caring for you in the midst of the storm.
