RECAP–WALKING WITH OUR LORD based on Revelation 21:22-22:15

#2 Hymn–In the Garden 

The context for the Hymn (based on Godtube.com)

Here is the account of how this beautiful hymn was written from the hymn writer, C. Austin Miles, himself, “One day in April 1912, I was seated in the dark room where I kept my photographic equipment, and also my organ. I drew my Bible toward me and it opened at my favorite book and chapter, John chapter twenty. I don’t know if this was by chance or by the work of the Holy Spirit. I will let you the reader decide. That story of Jesus and Mary in John 20 had lost none of its power and charm.

It was though I was in a trance, as I read it that day, I seemed to be part of the scene. I became a silent witness to that dramatic moment in Mary’s life when she knelt before her Lord and cried, “Rabboni”. I rested my hands on the open Bible, as I stared at the light blue wall. As the light faded, I seemed to be standing at the entrance of a garden, looking down a gently winding path, shaded by olive branches. A woman in white, with head, bowed, hand clasping her throat, as if to choke back her sobs, walked slowly into the shadows. It was Mary. As she came unto the tomb, upon which she placed her hand, she bent over to look in and ran away.

John, in a flowing robe, appeared looking at the tomb. Then came Peter, who entered the tomb, followed slowly by John. As they departed, Mary reappeared leaning her head upon her arm at the tomb, she wept. Turning herself, she saw Jesus standing there, so did I. I knew it was He. She knelt before Him, with arms outstretched, and looking into His face cried, “Rabboni”.

I awakened in sunlight, gripping my Bible with my muscles tense, and nerves vibrating, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. I wrote as quickly as the words could be formed the lyrics exactly as it is sung today. That same evening, I wrote the tune. It is sung today as it was written in 1912.”

SERMON RECAP

What an amazing scene it must have been for Mary in the garden, by the tomb, reconnecting with her LORD! We were never there; however, we all long for the day when we will finally see Jesus face to face! When we were created, we were meant to walk with our Lord and have regular daily fellowship with him. Adam and Eve were created and placed in the garden, where God walked with them regularly in the cool of the day. But sin entered the world and severed that relationship, and the time of walking in the garden came to a close. Through the love of God, and the willing sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, restoration became possible and the hope of reuniting in the garden is made possible again.

We long for heaven. We look forward to the day when we can walk with Jesus. A day will come, according to Revelation 21 and 22, when we will be able to experience again what humanity lost:

1) We will constantly be surrounded by God’s presence. We don’t have to hunt and find God, for we will literally be surrounded by him, knowing he is always there. We are in harmony with one another.

2) We will walk in the light. There will be no more night, both literally and figuratively. Those things that bring us night and darkness (personal struggles & corporate struggles) will be removed. No longer will there be things to hold us down or back. We will be truly free!

3) We will drink the living water. Without water, we die. Water is the ultimate source of nourishment. The living water will flow from God himself. As we drink the water, we are taking in the very presence of God and all the nourishment we could possibly need to live.

4) We will eat from the tree of life. The tree which humanity was banned from due to sin would be accessible again. The leaves provide healing for the nations. The fruit empowers us to know God more fully and become more like him.

5) We will see God’s face. No longer will God’s face be hidden from humanity, for when we have partaken from the living water and eaten from the tree of life, we will no longer have any stain or remnant of sin; we will be completely pure in God’s sight, able to see his face like Adam and Eve did so long ago.

But for us to walk in the garden, we have to make a choice like Adam and Eve did. Will we follow the voice of the Lord, or take the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?

Will our names be found in the Lamb’s book of life? Is Jesus our Lord and Savior?

Will our robes be washed in the blood of the lamb? Will we live a life of holiness, striving to become more like Jesus in word and deed?

Will we remove the curse and stain of sin–specifically, the stain of purposeful, rebellious sin?

Seeing Jesus in the garden brought Mary great joy; how much greater our joy when we will see Jesus one day!

Questions for reflection

1) How does the love of God impact your life?

2) What “night” do you hope to see come to a close in your life?

3) Why is it important to have a regular diet of the living water and fruit of the Word?

4) Why does purposeful sin keep us from the garden?

Good News Brief–June 8, 2021

RECAP–EVEN SO, IT IS WELL based on Habakkuk 3:1-2, 16-19

#3 Hymn–It is Well

The context for the Hymn (based on research by Pastor Ryan)

Horatio Spafford was a businessman who was deeply devoted to ministry. He became good friends with DL Moody during his time in Chicago, helping those who recently came to Christ through Moody’s preaching to start a path of discipleship. He used his business savvy to invest in real estate projects in the poorer areas of Chicago. He bought out homes and remodeled them so those who were in need of a home could find them.

But Spafford was a man who became too familiar with tragedy. In 1871, the Great Chicago Fire swept through the city, including almost the entirety of the properties he owned. Many of the people lost their lives. Although Horatio’s family was spared, he lost almost everything financially but continued to support DL Moody’s ministry. Moody had answered an invitation to preach in England, and the Spaffords agreed to assist. But Horatio had some unfinished business to attend to in Chicago and sent his family on ahead. As the family crossed the Atlantic, the ship was struck by another ship, and the boat sank in the Ocean. Horatio’s wife survived, and tragically sent the telegram after several days back to Horatio with the words simply stating, “Saved alone.”

Horatio took the next ship to make the journey. When he came to the exact spot the ship had sunk and he lost his four children, he began to weep. Then the words began to flood over his soul: “When sorrows like sea billows roll, whatever my lot, thou has taught me to say it is well with my soul.” When he finished the journey, he was met by his wife and several others associated with the ministry who surrounded him with love and prayer. Horatio later penned those words from his reflection, and it became the hymn we know today.

SERMON RECAP

It is very difficult to say “It is well” when we are in the midst of adversity or the storm. We look to people like Horatio or the prophet Habakkuk with admiration because when we are going through seasons of difficulty, our tendency is to become discouraged, defeated, doubtful, disgusted, disgruntled, or distant.

Habakkuk had every opportunity to do all of the above. He was a man concerned for the state of his nation, praying to God to do something about his people and their poor choices. God responded that he was going to do something–send the Babylonian army to take them into exile! Habakkuk rejected this word, asking God to reconsider, and waited for God to change his mind. Once it became abundantly clear that was not going to happen, Habakkuk uttered one of the most beautiful and honest poems in the entirety of Scripture. How did Habakkuk come to the place of saying “It is Well,” and how can we say the same in our times of trouble?

1) Recall the faithfulness of God (3:1). Habakkuk recalled the famous deeds of God in the nation’s history and asked God to renew them in his day. Sometimes it is difficult to see God in the midst of all the struggle, but God has been faithful before. Look back to see his goodness and allow that to be the strength to bring us to hope, even when it looks like there is no way forward.

2) Be REAL (3:16-17). Habakkuk showed his human side, for he still was waiting for God to change his mind and judge Babylon instead. Then Habakkuk detailed all the things that were wrong or empty at that moment in time. In other words, he was saying “THIS SUCKS!” God did not send a lightning bolt or rebuke the prophet. But God met the prophet where he was, in the midst of his frustration and pain. God’s shoulders are big enough.

We carry with us pains, hurts, and disappointments. Some are easier to see than others. But we all have pain we carry. Sometimes, we refuse to let it show and put on a happy face. Inwardly, though, we want to kick and scream and say this isn’t fair. It is perfectly okay to do so! Not only that, the church should be the place where we can just be honest and real before God with our struggles. We are to carry each other’s burdens (Gal 6:2), bringing each other to the one who can grant us rest (Matt 11:28; Heb 10:23-24). What if we had a Sunday where instead of preaching, we gathered around each other and simply carried each other’s burdens?

3) Make the choice of joy (3:18). Despite the pain, disappointment, and sorrow, Habakkuk said, “yet I will rejoice in the LORD.” Choosing to rejoice in God is extremely difficult to do in those times of agony. Circumstance does not change the nature of God, nor his goodness. But when we choose joy, we are reaching for the one who can pull us out of the muck and mire. It is okay to be balling your eyes out while singing hymns or contemporary songs! Reach out your hand to the deliverer!

4) Renew your strength in God (3:19). God will not remove all trouble; rather, he will give us the strength and ability to navigate through, like a deer has the ability to navigate through the rocky crags. Those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength.

Questions for reflection

1) When you reflect over your life, what are some ways God has shown you his care?

2) Why is there freedom in being real before God?

3) Why is choosing joy difficult in the midst of adversity? Why is it so important?

4) Why is it difficult to rely on God in times of trouble? What are the benefits of surrender?

Good News Brief–June 1, 2021

RECAP–OUR GREAT GOD based on Psalm 66

#4 Hymn–How Great Thou Art

Context for the Hymn (based on research by Pastor Ryan)

This favorite hymn finds its origin in Sweden in the early 1800’s when the anabaptist and other renewal movements of the church were facing persecution. They had a thriving underground church during that season, and Carl Boberg was one of the members of this church. They had just concluded a service on Psalm 8, talking about the greatness of God, when on his return journey home, a sudden storm swept over the bay.

At first, he was taken aback by the powerful thunderclaps and beautiful display of lightning. As he took cover, he observed the wind’s power as it blew across the bay, and felt the cool touch of the raindrops. As the storm began to depart, a vibrant rainbow appeared in the sky.

When he returned home, he opened his window that faced the bay. He heard the thrushes singing their songs, and in the distance, he heard church bells playing a common tune sung at funerals. As Carl took his whole day in, he began to rest on the greatness of God, and wrote “O Store Gud,” or “How Great Thou Art.”

SERMON RECAP

What makes something great? It doesn’t come from self-promotion or proclamation; rather, it comes as one is elevated in comparison to others in its field. Michael Jordan was a great basketball player, and still to this day is considered the greatest of all time. He never lost an NBA Finals. He even took a two-year break from basketball to play baseball, and then came back and won three more NBA championships!

What do we do in the presence of greatness? When I worked in college at Papa John’s, I had an encounter with Hall of Fame catcher Mike Piazza. His NY Mets team was in town to play the Phillies, and he was a native of Phoenixville, PA, the town where the Papa John’s was that I worked at! I recognized him almost immediately and had him autograph a Papa John’s napkin. That napkin now became “great” because it had been touched by the extraordinary!

We say God is great. But do we live in such a way that reflects his greatness in our lives? When we say he is great, do we truly know how he is great? Psalm 66 points to four areas we see God’s greatness:

1) God is greater than our enemies (Satan & culture). It is easy to become discouraged today by culture. Also, sometimes we feel the sting of the enemy in our lives, as he tempts us to live apart from God and abandon the call God may have for our lives. But the Scripture is clear: the enemies will cringe before the Lord (v 3) and all the earth will bow before God (v 4). It does not say “some” of the enemies or the earth, but all. God reigns victorious against the very ones who seek to destroy us!

2) God is greater than the impossible. We all face circumstances from time to time that seem impossible. We all know those who we love going through impossible situations. But the Psalmist reminds us that God is the God of the impossible. If he could part the sea and cause the people to pass through on dry ground (v 6), safe from Pharoah’s armies, then God can do the impossible in our lives.

3) God is greater than bondage. Even when we are in prison (v 11), or enemies are on our backs (v 12), and our feet slip (v 9), God is greater. Yes, we may have chains or shackles, but God specializes in breaking those chains and extending us freedom.

4) God is greater than our sin. If we have sin in our hearts, God will not listen (v 18), but God has forgiven our sin and shown us his love (v 20). Sin required a payment. The payment Jesus gave us on the cross was once and for all, so we don’t have to live in the stain of sin.

God has done all these things for us. Do we believe in him? Do we still struggle against the enemy, or do we stand knowing the one who is in us is greater than the one in the world? Do we turn to God in the impossible? Do we choose to remain in bondage, or allow the Lord to set us free? Has God washed our sins, or do we choose to hold on to our failures?

God is great and worthy of all praise. Avoid the trap of making him too small in our eyes, or stuffing him in the box of our possibility. God takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary–can we live like he is great?

Questions for reflection

1) What lie from Satan or our culture do you struggle the most with? Place it in God’s greatness!

2) What impossible situation are you facing?

3) What secret bondage keeps you up at night?

4) What sins from your past can you not forgive yourself for?

Remember, trust in the greatness of God, and he will overcome all!
