Pastor Philip Miller

I Believe in Belonging (I Believe in the Church)

August 3, 2014

It was Jesus who proclaimed, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.” The church is God’s primary means of working in the world, and each Christian should have a vital relationship with a local body of believers.

Worship is not just an hour on Sunday morning.  As we will learn today, worship needs to become a way of life. We will find that a life of worship involves a cost, because without that cost, our worship is not genuine.

A well along a dusty road was an unlikely place for a teaching on worship. Yet here, Jesus taught a despised woman how to worship God. And in this message, He will teach us the same lesson.

We often hear about political attempts to encourage peace in the Middle East. Politicians make promises, and yet the conflict rages on. At best, Arabs and Israelis maintain a tense holding pattern in which neither side is assured of a secure future. Will there be peace before the return of Christ?

Some of us refuse reconciliation and hang on to our hurts until our knuckles turn white. Letting go would mean giving up the pain and anger that we want to hold on to. This message will call us to give them up and be healed of our anger.

Someone once said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” When it comes to reconciliation, people will stay divided until one person takes a step, the step Jesus spoke of when He said, “Go to your brother.” And we must go if the cycle of mistrust is to be broken.

It is almost fashionable to sue someone these days. Court dockets are full as people demanding payback for injustice. Sadly, too many of these cases involve Christians. The Apostle Paul has some pointed words for those who would like to haul a fellow believer into court.

“Someone’s out to get me.” That’s what David must have thought as King Saul tried to kill him for ten long years. Many people are under constant attack by those who want to do them harm. What drives these “spear throwers?” And how do we as believers handle long- running attacks from others? What do we do when reconciliation is not possible?

Families can be torn apart by feuds: long-running animosities usually caused by someone’s past unjust actions. Whether due to imagined or real hurt, some feuds go on for generations. Unless the cycle is broken, hatred can consume blood relatives. Is there a way out?

Jacob and Esau are classic examples of how different two children can be. Just like any family, conflict was almost inevitable. Jacob the younger connived the birthright of Esau the older, and the lifelong battle began.

Jesus said, “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy.” Some people are destroyers, intent on ruining the lives of others. In the Bible, this kind of person is typified by Cain, who, in a fit of rage, killed his own brother at the dawn of humanity.
