Lawful and Sinful

28 Jun

We have come to a place where we automatically assume because something is lawful it must also be moral.¬† Morality has changed a great deal just even in my lifetime. We, for some reason, think that if we wrap sin in pretty paper with a shiny bow¬†and throw a party for it, it somehow changes how humanity and God sees it.¬† Because one is acting within law they automatically assume they are “a good person”(which is subjective without the moral parameters given to us by God). There has been a drastic culture change and it just isn’t within the secular world but also within the lives of believers.¬†We are challenging people to redefine what God already defined.¬† Many Pastors and churches are riding the worldly train looking to attract new members by going against the very word of God-perverting the Bible in ways to make sin irrelevant to ones salvation. We have caved under pressure and are afraid of defending the word of God because we covet the love of man more than the Son of Man.

We have to learn to separate the sin from the sinner.  We can love and support people without celebrating their sin. James 5:19-20 says-  My dear brothers and sisters, if someone among you wanders away from the truth and is brought back,  you can be sure that whoever brings the sinner back will save that person from death and bring about the forgiveness of many sins.

Of course I understand not everyone is a believer but we as Christians need to live a life that reflects God’s will toward them. For example in Colossians 4:5-6 it says-“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone”. ¬†When we are asked, we need to be ready with an answer and do it in such a way that conveys truth, gentleness, and respect.

Titus 2:1 says-“You must teach what is in accord to sound doctrine”.¬†It doesn’t end there.¬† There are many other verses dealing with false doctrine.

When we sugar coat, add, or purposely misinterpret for gain…¬†Titus 1:11 says it well-“They must be silenced, because they are disrupting whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach–and that for the sake of dishonest gain.

I know the new popular slogan is “I want to be on the right side of history”.¬† While that might bring worldly pleasure, I would much rather be on “the right side of eternity”.

Love everyone fiercely, be the first to offer encouragement, always speak the truth in love, but don’t forget to be set apart.¬† Let’s be bold for Jesus!

A Season of Transition

20 Jul

I have entered a new season of my life.¬† Let me go back a few steps.¬† I have spent the last several years helping lead a ministry that is for mother’s of preschoolers and younger.¬† I built close friendships and a tight community.¬† It was such a blessing to me to see how God worked in the lives of these mama’s who were just beginning their journey as wives and mother’s.¬† I was blessed enough to share my heart with these ladies about marriage, motherhood, and how God can use them in small but signifigant ways in this busy season of their lives.

This past May, I graduated out of the group.¬† I no longer had little ones so my time came to an end.¬† I spent so much of my time dedicated to this group, so when I left, I felt an extra large void in my life.¬† I kind of felt like two iron doors chained and locked closed behind me and I was left with an armful of memories and no clear direction to where I should go.¬† Please note that these are still very dear welcoming friends, I just don’t belong there in the same way I did before.¬† I was so focused on this ministry I was lost as to where to go next.¬† So I wandered…….

I spent time in prayer but was in a period of waiting on the Lord to lead my path.¬† The Lord chose not to answer right away.¬† I think he was refining me by teaching me patience and trust in His will for me.¬† It is hard to wait.¬† I wanted to jump right in to something else because I¬†had a hundred ideas of things I wanted to do but didn’t have peace about.¬† In this time I had to neatly fold all my plans and lay them at the altar knowing that the will of God is so much greater than all the neat ideas I have swimming around in my head.

Several months ago God brought Titus 2: 3-5 to mind.  I kept thinking I have many Godly older women mentors-maybe God wanted me to have more?  I continued to pray about it and several weeks later while reading it for the hundreth time I finally got it!  God was telling me that I am the older women being spoken about in the verses.  Seriously? I was thinking, first, I have to leave a ministry I love and now God is telling me that I am old.

Reading this, I came to understand that the older women were teaching the younger women-I have daughters, I have a community of young wives and moters comming up right behind me.  I have almost 18 years of being a mama under my belt along with countless other experiences.  God has given me the gift of wisdom.  Am as as wise as I will ever be?  No, of course not, but enough to be an encouragement to other younger women.  To walk beside them as they are journeying a path I already took.

God is taking my youngish self and gathering my experiences and strengths and channeling them into something just as wonderful but different-and I am starting to be OK with it, dare I say excited.

God, gave me this precious break to regroup and put my focus right back on Him.¬† This has given me a more mature deeper relationship to the One who loves me most.¬† I’m still not sure what exactly all that God has in store for me but I do know that I can wait and trust in His perfect timing (proverbs 3:5-6).

Are you in a season of transition?  How is God working in your life during this time?  I would love to know!
