“And I tell you, you will not see me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.’” – Luke 13:35

I worry about our country. We are like sheep without a shepherd. But it is not because Jesus is not up to the crisis. I wonder if Christianity is in the minority simply because we consider what we are doing to be more important than taking the time to deepen our relationship with God. Take the next five minutes to list your blessings as they rise above your hurts, and then finish by reading aloud Psalm 100!

Jesus answered him, 'It is said, ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’” When the devil had finished every test, he departed from him. – Luke 4:12-13

Temptation often causes the first step toward a stumble into sin and self-imposed separation from God. Even Satan could not resist the challenge to put Jesus to the test. The Bible states that it was only after he had tried “every test” did he leave Jesus alone. When I am most tempted or feel like God is nowhere to be found, that is the most important time for me to stop everything else and give my trust back to Him!

From the cloud came a voice, “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!” – Luke 9:35

While hiking on a narrow mountain path in the intense fog that can so quickly overcome you, sounds and sudden appearances of other hikers can be quite unnerving. In this passage, we receive Jesus’ promise that “I will never leave you nor forsake you and God’s exhortation to “listen to Him.” Imagine what type of “transfiguration” might occur if we spent just 15 minutes in a serene place listening to Him today.

“Are any among you suffering? They should pray!” – James 5:13

When I was a Boy Scout studying First Aid, I learned about a universal antidote for poisoning accidents. James advocates prayer as a universal antidote for whatever suffering we endure. Prayer doesn’t eliminate our suffering, but prayer always invites God to share in it. O God you alone know all the suffering we face today. Come and be with us as we struggle through it.

“But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, willing to yield, full of mercy, and good fruits.” – James 3:17

As the leaders of our church gather for the Special Session of General Conference on February 23-26, 2019, let us pray for their safe travels, for their constructive conversations, and that God’s wisdom and mercy might pour over them like an endless stream.
