Let's Get Ready for Battle #1 of 3

November 10, 2008
Are you in the wilderness, spiritually? Has your vision of God dimmed? You need to stay tuned for a way out of the desert. Joshua needed a fresh cleansing from God, and a fresh vision of God, before the battles in Canaan could begin. Do you face tough times in the days ahead? Like Joshua, you can face them with a clean heart and a renewed sense of God's presence.

The race of life is a struggle from the first sprint to the last lap. Each of us needs the word of God for strength to face the battle. And that means meditation and study in the Scriptures each and every day. That was the first step Joshua took before conquering Canaan, and, it's how we can conquer the challenges God has set before us. To learn more: stay with us.

Most of us know that life's not a bed of roses. We face conflict and struggle every step of the way toward the goal line. Ancient Israel: they didn't find life a picnic either. Joshua's conquest of Canaan, city by city, took time and effort. For us to see God's intentions for our lives come to pass: that takes time and effort as well. And it's vital to "get started right."

Any sprinter knows that getting a good jump off the starting blocks is key to winning a race. That's true in life as well. For believers on the racetrack of life, there is no substitute for a good beginning. No matter what the task or opportunity, how we begin sets the tone for how we'll end up. And the series that begins today has one purpose: to get you started right.

Jesus said, "I am the Vine, you are the branches. If you abide in Me, and I in you, you will bear much fruit...." As we run the race of life, let's not forget that the world sees the fruit, not the branches. In order to win people to Jesus, we must be fruit-bearing Christians, or else the cross will be of no effect. It's not what we say, or who we vote for, it's what we do.

If you ask most Christians, "Do you want to be like Jesus?" they'd probably say "of course." Until they find out what that really means. Jesus renounced His privileges and humbled Himself to the point of permitting His own death. Unless we do the same, we will never reach the lost floating on the sea of relativism around us. Today: more about what it means to take the cross into the world.

The blinding glory of God was encased in the human flesh of Jesus. But He chose to contain that glory and limit His options. And that emptying of Himself is the key to how we can bring His message to lost mankind. As we learn more about why the cross can do what politics can't, today we'll find out how to effectively take the cross into the world.

There's a basic problem in evangelism: the world thinks the cross we preach about is foolish, but to us, it's the power of God. As we run the race of life as believers in Christ, how do we bring the message of the cross to a rejecting world? Today: some answers on how to have a real impact on those around us.

There's a true story about a pilot who decided to not believe his instruments, and flew his plane over a thousand miles in the wrong direction. No frequent flyer miles here... that man had a compass, and rejected it. Today's common philosophy is "if it feels good, do it." But believers know that the cross is a potent reminder of the price of wrong moral choices. Today: why the cross is the only basis for morality.

Americans are adrift in a sea of moral relativism. These days, what's wrong is now right; what was right is now wrong. At a time of same-sex marriage and rampant abortion, we need a moral compass - a fixed point of reference. The cross of Christ is that point, that basis for morality. And the church must live by that basis if our culture is to avoid total decay.
October 28, 2008
Moral schizophrenia: in our society it's OK to kill a baby right before birth, but it's murder to kill one after birth. That's what happens when moral choices are set by the will of the majority. Confusion reigns....and the price tag is devastating. We can keep eating the bitter fruit of rebelling against God, or we can turn to Him in faith, and adopt His standards for behavior.
