“in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

‭‭I Thessalonians‬ ‭5‬:‭18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Thankfulness is abnormal for the unbeliever, but normal for the believer. A heart void of God’s grace is incapable of consistently initiating gratitude, but a heart governed by grace can’t hold back a thankful expression. It erupts in public worship and praise to God. It naturally flows from joyful lips in private prayers. Like a small child ecstatic over the gift of a new doll or toy truck, so those who have received the gift of salvation are exuberant over their abundant life in Christ.

Indeed, grace is the gift of God that keeps on giving. Not only are we its recipient at conversion, but His grace continues to infuse our faith day by day, until that day we appear with Him. Yes, gratitude keeps our attitude focused on the Lord’s goodness. He is still good when others are bad. He is still good when we are sad. He is still good when we are mad. He is still good when we doubt. He is still good when we struggle. So, we remain thankful regardless of our situation.

There are obstacles to exercising God’s will of thanksgiving in all circumstances. A wounded heart can’t see beyond its own hurt and anger. There is no gratitude, only disappointment with God and people. Why would my Savior allow me to be hurt? The heart of Jesus hurts when we hurt. His Spirit enters into our pain with comfort and compassion. Our pain is not an excuse to pout, but to pour out our emotions to the Healer of our heart. Gratefulness is God’s antibiotic.

What can you turn over to Jesus for Him to handle? A relationship? A health issue? Pain in your past? Lay it down at the foot of the cross and allow God to do His work of grace. Maybe begin to journal the blessings of God. Thank Him for your joy in Jesus Christ. Thank Him for the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the food you eat. Thank Him for physical shelter from the elements and spiritual shelter from the enemy. God’s will for you is to be grateful. Your thanksgiving inspires others to be thankful!

“in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

‭‭I Thessalonians‬ ‭5‬:‭18‬ ‭NKJV‬

  • Tempo squats
  • Tempo merks
  • LBAC -F
  • LBAC – B
  • Hallelujah’s
  • Knox Cherry picker
  • Meet up at Skeletor’s land shark for sandbag pickup

THA-THANG:

Pair up, pick a toy from the trunk and head to the soccer field to find cones setup 100 yards apart

Line toys up 10 yards apart on the goal line

Round 1

Station 1 60# sandbag throw

Take turns throwing the sandbag until we make 100 yards

Station 2 40# sandbag burpee toss

Take turns doing burpees and throwing the sandbag over your head until we make 100 yards

Station 3 40# sandbag snaps

Take turns at the center position snapping the sandbag to the next man until we make 100 yards

When all men make the 100 yards, mosey back to the start  line (100 yards away) and then Bernie back (another 100 yards) to your sandbag.

Since we had an odd number we had one man working through station number 3 alone.

Rinse and repeat until each man was able to complete the solo snap run on station 3  


All total, in the 35ish minutes we had we moved the sandbags up the field 5x, we  moseyed 5x and Bernied 5x for a grand total of 1500 yards gained  

Never made it to Round 2, which converted to a  relay style smash

Living Your Now With The Next World in Mind

If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world. — C.S. Lewis

Believers in Jesus live on two planes of existence simultaneously. The truth is that we live in Christ… and we also live in Kingston, Rockwood, Harriman, Midway, or wherever. We are in Christ spiritually, and yet we are in our physical location, living our lives with work, family, and other commitments.

Consider Paul’s salutation in Colossians 1:1-2:

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to God’s  holy people in Colossae, the faithful brothers in Christ.

Notice the words near the end of this verse. IN Christ IN Colosse. He is saying that they are in Christ, but that they are also in Colossae. How can someone be in both places?

Think about what Paul wrote in another letter, 2 Corinthians 4:18:

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

The words “temporary” and “eternal” are key here. The world we live in can be seen; it’s physical and visible, and we interact with it continuously. It’s also temporary. It’s here for a while, but then it will go.

Then there is the invisible world. It is Christ and all that comes with Him. He is our purpose for being, the reason we go about things in the physical world.

We like to compartmentalize and sort things. That’s why label makers and organizing software sell well. (Unfortunately, it’s also why Christians tend to think they can do church on Sundays, head to lunch, and that was their Jesus fix for the week!)

We can’t compartmentalize the eternal and the temporary. The two are interchangeable for believers. We live in both right now!  And if we’re paying attention to the eternal, our temporary life will show it.

MOLESKIN:
Proud of these men for not bucking when it began to rain and I said push through, not a single complaint. We got wet and worked hard, it was worth every minute.

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.”

Let all that you do be done in Love

I want to call today’s beatdown, Separate Saturday.

For two reasons, one, there are only a handful of us here. We have separated from the general population of men in Roane county and have committed to be here.

Two, for we as followers of Christ are called to be separate. But what kind of separate? I can come and be among you but keep separate, not engaging, but being separate. We aren’t called to exclude and keep private the things of Christ but to share them. We are in the world,  but not of the world.

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭6‬:‭14‬-‭18

“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.”

Again I say how shall we be separate, how will we be known?

Joh 13:34  “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

Joh 13:35  “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Jesus in appearing to his disciples from the shore after the crucifixion found them fishing. They had just been with Jesus days earlier and they knew that God was with them. They had went back to their day job of fishing. What was their world before Jesus, fishing. They had returned to the world. Sitting down after breakfast Jesus begins to inquire. Jesus says to Simon Peter,

“Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.”

‭‭John‬ ‭21‬:‭15‬-‭17‬

Why was Jesus so adamant that if Peter loved Him he should feed, tend, and shepherd his sheep, not go fishing.

Do you love him? Feed His sheep.

Do you love him? Shepherd his sheep.

Do you love him? Feed his sheep.

Be in the world, but not of the world, and everything you do, do it in Love, for Christ.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

We aren’t called to carry the burdens of life alone. Galatians 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.

How do we do that:

  1. Be available – This is the easiest one. Show interest in helping a brother carry his load. Ask him how he is doing, how you can pray for him.
  1. Be a listener- We as men can be  bad listeners, we want to take cation to solve the problem. Sometimes folks just want to share what’s on their heart and need someone to confide in. Be there to listen and give a hug or fist bump to say, I love you and I’ve got your back.
  1. Be a conduit – sometimes we aren’t the right people for the situation a friend is in. Be someone who points others to a friend who has dealt with something similar and has experience with the same type of pains.
  1. Be a witness – no matter what the problem, sin, or affliction, there is only one resolution, the Gospel. The Gospel is a daily reminder that we cannot do it, we need a savior, and that savior is Jesus Christ. He is the one who lived a perfect life, that we can’t live, died a righteous death that we can’t die, and rose again defeating death forever and providing a way for his children to dwell with him forever.

Carry your brothers burdens, look for opportunities to be a blessing.

COT today is about walking in Faith

I am teaching through Ephesians. Yesterday we covered a portion of chapter 2 verse 2. It begins with the phrase, in which you formerly walked. It is referring to the spiritual state of the Ephesians people when they were dead in trespasses and sins.

I asked my youth kids what it meant to walk with something, and what was a life like if you are walking in sins. If you are walking with sins and trespasses, it’s a way of life for you. You have no relationship with holiness if you are walking in trespasses and sins.

Once we defined an unrighteousness walk, we looked at a Holy walk, and specifically Enoch. Enoch was Noah’s great grandfather, and Genesis 5 tells us that He walked with God and he was not, for God took him.

Then in Hebrews 11: 5-6 we see that Enoch was translated, he never died, and was taken up to be with God, for he pleased God. Then it says:

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

So my friends, if you want to please God, then by faith, walk with Him, believing that He is, and diligently seeking Him.

There are only two ways to do this, that is reading His word, and prayer. There are many ways to serve Him, but service does not grant you an audience with Him. Again, Hebrews 11:6 ,without Faith it is Impossible to please him.

MOLESKIN:
Walk in Faith, believing in Him and earnestly seeking Him.
