A Word from Mike…

To Our Monday Night Classes:

Because of the holiday interruptions, we are going to place a hold on our classes until Jan. 16. This will give you more flexibility with busy Christmas schedules with ministries and families.

On Mon. Jan. 9, there is a StoneBridge (inner city) ministry event planned that maybe we would all like to participate in. We will get you more details soon.

Thanks, men and ladies. I will look forward to re-starting our times together in mid January..

Blessings!

I spoke, last Sunday, about a painful incident recorded in 1 Sam. 15, concerning King Saul’s second act of disobedience (the first is recorded in ch. 13)—both of which were said by Samuel to have cost Saul his kingdom. As painful as these incidents were, even more so is the fact that the spirit of Saul’s disobedience is still present among some of us who profess to follow Christ. In this passage, the sin, to us, might appear somewhat subtle; Saul indeed did some of what God commanded, but subtle in the sense that some modern Christians might tend to agree with Saul’s defense of his actions. He had been commanded by God, through Samuel, to destroy all the Amalekites and all that they possessed. Saul obeyed God to a point, but not fully. He killed and destroyed most of them, but spared King Agag as well as the best of the animals. Apparently, he and the people reasoned that this was close enough, and even could be a good thing in that the clean animals could be used to sacrifice to God. Is there not a spirit among some of the people of God today that ‘close enough is good enough?’ After all, God cares so much about us that He will be OK with our spin on obedience. He knows how we feel; he appreciates our improvisations to His expectations, particularly since many of His expectations are quite archaic. Surely He doesn’t expect us to be that different from those around us? He wouldn’t have us follow some of the things He commanded that would be incredibly inconvenient and difficult for us, so He must not expect us to comply fully to what He said so long ago. We’ve even found that if we pray hard enough about an issue in question, we can find peace about doing it another way. If we prayed and found peaceit must be of God, and therefore good! We’re still with Him—just on our terms. To paraphrase a line from a vintage commercial that most of you won’t remember: We’ve come a long way, baby to get where we’ve got to today! But, what way is that? We’ve joined the ranks of Saul in believing that God is on board with us in our partial obedience. He should be happy that we do as well as we do since we don’t completely ignore or disobey Him.
 
Is there any wonder why we often lack power in our lives and ministries, and why the watching world might see us as hypocrites? They often see reality better than we do. It’s time that we take God’s Word seriously, exegete it carefully, and apply it contextually and consistently. I’m not talking about legalism and rigidity where there are no personal freedoms, but let’s stop calling disobedience, freedoms! We don’t want to forget about grace as we speak the truth; we help people in their weaknesses and struggles, but we simply do not want to allow a spirit of compromise to go unchallenged. The cost was great for Saul, and it will be for us as well. The God of the covenants (Old and New) is not compatible with that which is inconsistent with His Word and His character. What better way to show our thanks to God for His blessings during this season than with full surrender and a serious view toward complete obedience?
 
Let’s keep encouraging one another with these things!
