Grow For Such A Time As This

Certainly, the Lord desires that every Christian grows in their relationship with Him. “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby” (1 Pet. 2:2). If we do not evaluate our overall Christian life, we will be as a ship drifting in the sea; where the rudder is turned ever so slightly and the ship ends up wandering completely off course, ending up at the wrong destination. There are definite indicators that you’re maturing spiritually. For instance, you will display grace to others, possess the discernment to speak at the right moments, share your faith wherever you go, and become increasingly homesick for Heaven. Regardless of where you’re currently at in your relationship, you don’t have to remain stagnant. You can move forward and grow!

Steadfast For Such A Time As This

Slide1 Jesus declared, “No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62). Unfortunately, many have taken hold of the gospel plow, making a profession and starting out strong, but the lure of the world enticed them to return. It is impossible to plow a straight row looking back. As Christians, we are commanded to be steadfast in every aspect of our life (1 Cor. 15:58); in our discipleship, our prayer, and our witness. With numerous issues facing the church today, believers must be unwavering in their daily walk with Christ. The hymn writer, Helen Howarth Lemmel (1922), aptly states:

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,

Look full in His wonderful face,

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,

In the light of His glory and grace.

Remember For Such A Time As This

The book of Psalms reveals the transparency of many servants of God. The chief musician Asaph cried out in sincerity, “I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah” (Ps. 77:3). He served as a godly song leader under the reign of King David, Solomon, and perhaps briefly with Rehoboam. Asaph fervently prayed for the Lord God to deliver from his undisclosed and relentless sore. He expressed his utter anguish with great despair and refused to be comforted. To make matters worse, he began to doubt and question his Creator, being left speechless and without a song.

Nevertheless, he displayed a sudden change of heart. What caused him Asaph to be encourage? He remembered and meditated on the works of the Lord (Ps. 77:11-12). As belivers, we too must remember God’s exploits in the past, His workings in the present, and His promises in the future.

Alive for Such A Time As This

A study released by the Rasmussen Reports polling firm found that 64% of Americans believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead. While Americans who believe in the resurrection remain in the majority, that number is down significantly when compared to the same question asked one year ago. On April 7th, 2012 Rasmussen then released a poll finding that 77% of Americans believed the resurrection of Christ to be historical fact. The difference between the two polls shows a 13% decline in the number of Americans who believe that Christ rose from the dead, since last Easter.

Plainly stated, if you do not believe in the resurrection you don’t believe the gospel, and you can’t be saved. The resurrection is an indisputable fact of prophecy and history. Jesus proclaimed, “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Matt. 12:10). There was above five hundred eyewitnesses of the resurrected body of Jesus. To disprove those testimonies, one would have to find a skeleton and prove it was Jesus Christ. Without the resurrection, our preaching and faith is in vain (1 Cor. 15:14). Everything we believe and hold sacred stands or falls on the fact of the resurrection. I am grateful that Jesus is Alive for Such A Time As This!
