As we continue to see new faces show up and some of the new faces become familiar faces over time, I believe a question arises about finding one’s place in the new-to-them congregation. With as many personalities as there are people, there is not one completely effective method for bringing someone into a family of faith in which he gets to live out his gifts. Often, there are willing people who are passionate about a certain area of service, but because of a lack of information on the part of the church, they may never plug into a place that is fulfilling to them.
One problem that plagues several small churches (in my limited experience) is that much of the volunteer resources that are actually used are reactive in nature. This means that needs crop up as they do in any church and well-meaning folks make a desperate plea to fill the void with any willing, able body. Then, once a person fills a need, they either become perpetually attached to that job or they are asked first anytime another problem arises because they said yes.
What can we do to be a church whose people are involved and serving ways that ignite their spirit, fulfill their passions, and fill them with joy as they serve? Well, this is the fun part. I believe that God created creativity. Since creativity is a God-given gift, then we get to enjoy the unique way God has put us together, gifted us, and combined those gifts to form what we call, “the local church.”
First, I want you to understand my philosophy about people serving in the church. To understand my philosophy, first be aware of these premises. The church is God’s bride and is therefore His to guide and direct. The church is much more than the building that we come together to worship within. God has created the bride, this living organism, made up of thousands upon thousands of uniquely created people. God has called His people to serve Him. To the church, God has given the mission of spreading the message of hope in Jesus (evangelism). To the church, He’s given the responsibility of training believers to follow God (aka. discipleship) which includes the responsibility of producing new disciples
Based on these beliefs, my philosophy of service or involvement is this: we start by understanding how God has uniquely crafted us and given us gifts of His Spirit and then ask the question of how God wants us to put these into action. So, ask yourself the question, “what has God made me passionate about?” “What is it that I just can’t help but be excited about? Does the idea of training the next generation fire you up? Does being a support structure for missionaries in tough places make you feel a sense of significance? Do you get thrilled about the idea of feeding hundreds of people? Are you concerned about feeding the hungry? Does the idea of abortion make you desperately sad, and does that drive you to want to do something? Soul searching to know who you are and what is important to you as a person and, more importantly, as a child of God is vital to finding your place within the body.
It’s okay to think outside the box. Just because there is no current ministry going on for something that you are passionate about within the context of our church does not mean that one isn’t available for you to do. Perhaps, you might be the one to kick-start a new ministry within the church. It just might take a little bit of time, research, communication and effort to get going. But it is possible.
There are a lot of good things out there that we as Christians can and should do, but no one of us can do all of them. We would probably go crazy trying to keep up, and we’d be no good at any one of them because we’d be so stressed out. So, go ahead, dream a little. Explore your own make-up. I’ll spend some more time on this topic next time. In the meantime, don’t be afraid to ask if you want to get more involved.
In a recent interview with a few Seattle Seahawks, Pastor Mark Driscoll asked the guys a simple question. His question, “who is Jesus?” In short answers from each of them, perhaps the one that stood out the most was from, Rocky Seto, Defensive Passing Game Coordinator. “Jesus is the greatest treasure in the Universe … it’s not like you give up your life and get something worse,” says Seto. He continues, “We had nothing, he (Jesus) gave us everything … Jesus is better than anything … even better than the Super Bowl or an NFL career.” He goes on to say that one could win the Super Bowl and still wake up the next day feeling empty if they do not have Jesus. The brief clip referenced here ends with Seto declaring, “if you have Jesus, it will be awesome whether we win or lose.”
The Seattle Seahawks are headed for a Super Bowl. Now, these men and the rest of the team have an opportunity to play in one of the biggest events on just about the biggest stage one can think of. This is a dream for most of these guys. Do you have any idea how many young boys watch and play football and dream about playing for an NFL team one day and having a chance to play in the Super Bowl and be the hero of the game? Do you know how many guys play high school, then college football in an effort to move toward that lofty dream? Do you realize how few actually make it to play in the NFL? Have you ever stopped and wondered how many guys make it to the NFL, but aren’t able to make a career out of it. Would you stop for a moment and think about how few actually get an opportunity to play in the greatest game on the greatest stage?
Reaching the Super Bowl must be like winning the lottery. For most who have made it, it is a dream come true. Yet, according to Rocky Seto and the other Seahawks’ players who were in agreement, Jesus is better than the Super Bowl. They are so right. Jesus gave us so much, and all we had to offer was a little garbage (since our righteousness is as filthy rags).
The reality that each one of us can have a personal, intimate, and real relationship with Jesus Christ stands above any other person or thing that could even attempt to fulfill our desires (not even a Super Bowl). Many do not understand how that is possible. That is probably because they have not personally experienced a deep, ongoing, and sincere relationship with Jesus.
What is it that you and I pursue? What is the pinnacle of life, success, or achievement for you? Do you consider the opportunity to know Jesus as something way better? The Bible teaches through the apostle Paul that all other things are like dung compared to the greatness of knowing Jesus.
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, - Philippians 3:8 (KJV)
Jesus is better than the Super Bowl, a lot better.

A new year is upon us. 2013 was probably great for some, lousy for others, so-so for a bunch, and all of the above for a few or maybe most. As the year draws to a close, I can’t help but think of how much has happened and all that has changed this year. At the close of 2012, my family and I were living in the unfinished basement of my parent’s home in Missouri hoping things would go well with this small church in Washington that had asked us to come to preach and get to know us in person.
Faith Baptist Church had been on a long journey of searching for a pastor. Their current pastor was supposed to retire a few months before, but stayed on in an effort to care for the church well. There was some buzz in the air about this young guy from Texas … or Missouri … or was it Wyoming? Nobody was sure where this guy was from, but they were looking forward to meeting him nonetheless.
We came together one weekend in mid-January. Dorothy and I loved the area and the people; it was clear to us that God was drawing us here. The people of Faith Baptist apparently felt the same way because they voted a week later unanimously to call me as the lead pastor of the church.
Not every year is filled with dramatic change, but 2013 held significant change for both the church and my family. Really, it is hard to believe how much has happened in just a year. Our family moved from over 2,000 miles away to a beautiful area and a nice church family. Faith Baptist Church shared in the retirement of a long-tenured pastor and the beginning of a first time lead pastor. Transition was made with great ease to the glory of God.
Faith has seen several new families begin to make this church their home. Our family added a new face with the birth of our fourth child in July. Members of this church have taken part in the new birth of 7 spiritual births (people placing their trust in Jesus Christ). There were 4 funerals held at Faith in just the last 4 months. These have brought sobering reminders that our time on earth is short, and we do not know when our life on earth will end.
These are just a few of the many changes that have taken place in our lives over the last year. But, it is time to look forward. What would God have us do or be in 2014? As we come into a new year, let us not be dragged down by resolutions that are made out of feelings of guilt, inadequacy, or insufficient service for the kingdom of God. Instead, let us focus our lives and energies on knowing, believing in, and trusting God.
May God change our hearts. May He influence all that we do. May He help us to live in 2014. To God be the glory in all that we are and all that we do. I pray that He makes us better followers of Him; better dads, moms, brothers, and sisters; better husbands, wives, and parents; better employees and employers; better stewards of our bodies, time, money, and energy; better students; and better friends. Most of the time, we focus our efforts on doing better in one, some, or all of the above usually with little benefit. But let us allow God to develop us into the people He wants us to be and I believe we will find that we are “better” in many of those areas.
If I could sum up in one word my encouragement to you all (whoever’s reading this – yes this includes you) for how to live in 2014, it would be LIVE. Live for God. In everything you do, seek Him. Do what you do for Him. Be who you are for Him. Live out your faith sharing your faith. Indeed, you will need to lean on God when you LIVE for Him. Make living something that drives you to chase after the LORD our God, and LIVE in 2014.
As we come upon the Christmas Season, there are many reactions to the celebration of Christmas for Christians. Some go all out decorating, eating, partying, buying presents, and living it up. Some attempt to avoid it altogether usually because of the over-consumerism or the reality that Jesus wasn’t likely born in December. Others find a middle ground somewhere between these extremes. So for those who really do love Jesus, how should Christmas be celebrated?
1. Exploit the season as an opportunity to talk about God with others, particularly your own families. It is really quite amazing how many opportunities occur in this season that we can claim as teachable moments. Our kids can be one great place to have discussion. Co-workers, neighbors and even strangers will often be more open to spiritual talk. Do not be fearful of discussing topics such as Santa, flying reindeer, Christmas trees, lights on the houses, and those grumpy people at Walmart in a truthful, yet thoughtful way. These conversations are opportunities!
2. Worship God, not the holiday warm feelings. One of the surest ways to get disappointed is to try to recreate great memories in order to renew warm fuzzies. When we remember the good times in days past, we often get that warm, fuzzy feeling deep inside. That’s okay, but sometimes we like it so much that we long for it in unhealthy ways. We try to make it happen again. God did create feelings, good ones! But, if we spend the Christmas season in search of re-living warm fuzzies, then we miss an opportunity to worship the living God! So, this year, resolve in your mind to enjoy God in the good things, during the fun times, and even amidst difficulties, and make this season about worshiping Him.
3. Love, in the name of Jesus. If you really want a merry Christmas, then love people! Love is an action. Ask yourself how God might want you to demonstrate His love this season. Remember the old cliché, “it is better to give than to receive?” Well, it’s true. God will knock your socks off with peace and joy when you choose to love in His name. So what are you waiting for, go love your spouse, parents, children, neighbors, co-workers, strangers at the mall, homeless people, or wherever there is a living, breathing human.
4. Bonus principles: Don’t criticize those who won’t say Merry Christmas! Oh, and be nice to retail employees (they are actually real people with feelings). Oh yeah, and definitely be patient with those around you – you are not the most important person in the world … really.
Oh, and have a merry little Christmas
Last Sunday, I (Pastor Justin), issued a challenge to consider the lost as we come to another Halloween night (less than a week away!). The challenge was to take a step in the direction of communicating the gospel more than we have before. For some, I encouraged to simply turn the lights on, open the door, and give candy away with a tract containing the gospel message. For others, I encouraged to go out and try to engage parents and/or kids in conversation about the gospel.
I respect the reality that, for Christians, there are a variety of approaches towards Halloween, but my goal is to move each one of us closer to always being ready to share the gospel. This is just one night, but it is a night that many people will be out, and some will not be in a hurry so it is a great opportunity to engage some in conversation.
If you are uncomfortable in your conscience before the Lord of being a part of Halloween night like I've encouraged, that is okay - please do not violate your conscience before God. But, let me challenge you to spend at least an hour in prayer (perhaps with some others) for those who will be out sharing the gospel that night.
But the man who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.
Romans 14:23 – NIV84
Let me also add that in areas like this one where we have many differing opinions about the acceptability of a practice let us offer each other grace. There are some areas in Scripture that do not prescribe for us a clear course of action or inaction. Often, we find a direction or a principle to live by. When we deal with principles, the application individually can vary significantly. So, let’s not be each other’s judges by determining what is right and wrong on areas of application of principle, but let us live in the freedom God has purchased for us at a very high and precious price.
So, how should this play out? Well, if God has moved you to be bold then do not look down on your timid brother or sister and accuse them of being disobedient. Instead encourage them to be faithful to God in the areas where they conscience is not troubled. On the other hand, if your conscience troubles you so as not to enter a dangerous situation, then do not judge or look down on those who are comfortable doing so. We are both believers in Jesus Christ! Let us both set our sights on bringing the gospel to those who do not know Jesus personally as their King.
1If then there is any encouragement in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, 2 fulfill my joy by thinking the same way, having the same love, sharing the same feelings, focusing on one goal. 3 Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves. 4 Everyone should look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
Philippians 2:1-4 – HCSB

Sam Alberry addresses one of the great questions asked today regarding the morality of homosexual unions provided that they are faithful and committed relationships. The excerpt is entitled, “Surely a same-sex partnership is OK if it’s committed and faithful?” I don’t think I could say it better so check this out:
One of the arguments commonly made today in favour of same-sex partnerships is that what must surely count above all else is faithfulness and commitment. Shouldn’t faithfulness within a relationship be what determines its moral goodness rather than the gender of those involved in it? A promiscuous gay lifestyle with multiple partners and one-night stands might be wrong, but two people who love each other and are faithful to whatever promises they have made—surely that’s OK?
It can seem a compelling argument, and it is increasingly common to find Christians allowing for this kind of expression of homosexual practice. But a number of important things need to be said in response.
In 1 Corinthians 5 Paul rebukes the Corinthian church for its acceptance of an illicit relationship. A man is in a relationship with his father’s wife, most likely his stepmother, an arrangement expressly forbidden in Leviticus 18. Paul is dismayed. Even the pagans in Corinthian society would not allow such a thing (1 Corinthians 5 v 1), and yet here it is going on in plain sight among God’s people.
Paul’s response to this situation is instructive, as much for what he doesn’t say as for what he does say. There is no question about whether the couple in question loves each other. Paul does not ask about their level of commitment or whether they are being faithful. That is not the issue. Whether or not they are in a long-term committee relationship is beside the point; the fact remains that it is wrong and should not be happening.
Paul does not distinguish between faithful illicit relationships and profligate illicit relationships, as if the latter are out of bounds but the former might just squeak in by virtue of their faithfulness. Consistency and faithfulness while sinning in no way diminish the sin. Paul calls for the church member in question to be expelled from the fellowship, and for the whole church to express remorse at what has happened (I Corinthians 5 v 2). Faithfulness demonstrated in an otherwise prohibited relationship does not make it less sinful.
In many areas of life it is possible to demonstrate good qualities while doing something wrong. A thief in a gang may demonstrate impeccable loyalty to his fellow criminals during the act of stealing; looking out for them, protecting them from danger, being sure to give them a generous proportion of the takings. None of this in any way lessens the immorality of the act; it just means he is being a “good” thief rather than a “bad” thief. As we have seen, Scripture is clear in its prohibition of any homosexual activity. Activity that is faithful and committed is no more permissible than activity that’s promiscuous and unfaithful.
Warning: parental approval is required before children or youth should read this article or book. Content should be read carefully by parent(s) before children read. It could be a good subject to read together and discuss.
Recently, I read through the book, Is God anti-gay: And other questions about homosexuality, the Bible, and same-sex attraction by Sam Allberry. The book was literally just published and was released less than a month ago by The Good Book Company as part of a series of books they call, “Questions Christians ask.” Other books in the series include What happens when I die?, Who on earth is the Holy Spirit?, and Did the devil make me do it?.
I was really interested in this book particularly because of some of the feedback after a sermon I preached a little while back in which I addressed the topic of homosexuality. More accurately, a portion of the sermon was on homosexuality, and it had to do with our treatment of and acceptance of those who express that they are gay or lesbian. As I said then, it is likely that each one of us knows someone or is even related to someone who believes himself or herself to be homosexual. Because of this reality, Christ-followers should consider how they will respond in the future as situations arise.
In the introduction, the author, Sam Allberry, expresses a little about himself. He openly talks about his own journey of facing the reality that he might be gay (5-6). He makes a very important distinction that I found helpful. Mr. Allberry prefers to use the term same-sex attraction to describe an aspect of himself rather than use the word gay because often those who describe themselves as gay are referring to an entire lifestyle and a personal identity wrapped up in being a homosexual (8). Allberry states that same-sex attractions are “part of what I feel but are not who I am in a fundamental sense (9).” This distinction, I believe, helps us understand that same-sex attraction is simply a temptation that some people deal with just like others deal with temptation to indulge in drugs or alcohol or heterosexual sex outside of the bounds of marriage.
In chapter 1, Allberry sets the stage on the foundation of the Bible. He looks to the Bible as the source of truth and authority. From the Bible, he argues that the Bible approves of sex. He reminds us that God invented marriage for a man and a woman, and he argues that sex was a gift from God for both reproduction and pleasure, but all within a marriage.
In chapter 2, Allberry exposes the Bible’s teaching on homosexuality from both the Old and New Testaments. With solid interpreting methods, he acknowledges that the Bible is clear that homosexuality is a sin against God and is a perversion of what God created.
In Chapter 3, Allberry talks about the compatibility of a Christian and a homosexual lifestyle. He asserts that if one is a Christ-follower, he or she should either marry a person of the opposite sex or remain single.
In chapter 4, Allberry appeals to the church to receive homosexual couples as warmly as they would anybody else. He argues that the church should be concerned about the state of their souls first. He offers some very practical advice on how to welcome someone who is a homosexual or someone who deals with same-sex attraction.
In chapter 5, Allberry describes practical ways for individual Christians to embrace and respond to someone who deals with same-sex attraction regardless of whether they go to church or not. He appeals to Christians to share the gospel, and he offers some insights into more effective ways than have been used by Christians to tear down the individual.
This topic seems to be growing more prominent in our culture; we cannot ignore it. This is an excellent book on the topic. He highlights some of the key questions that come up in discussions that will likely be the content of future articles … so stay tuned.
Howe about … 9 steps to better Bible reading, part 3
First, make a plan to spend time in Scripture. Otherwise it doesn’t happen.
Second, go to Scripture believing it is the Word of God … because it is!!!
Third, eliminate distractions.
Fourth, pray. Ask the Spirit of God to grant understanding of what is read.
Fifth, read. Read and reread the text.
Sixth, ask questions.
Number seven on my list is: write. Write as you engage in studying the word. Writing serves as an organizing and memory tool. Writing out some of the big ideas that you see in the text, writing some of your questions about the text, writing your thoughts about God and yourself will aid in helping you remember what you read and what was important about what you read. In addition to that, writing your thoughts in a prayer-like way to God can be a wonderful experience of considering God. Finally, having a written record provides something you can return to for the sake of encouragement down the road. Writing is one of the surprising, but amazing tools for experiencing better Bible reading times.
Eighth, meditate. Meditate on what you have read and gleaned as the main idea or ideas. Usually, writing will assist with memory retention for meditation. There does not need to be anything weird about meditating. Meditating is not going into a semi-conscious trance or sitting in a certain posture. Meditating on Scripture is simply remembering the truths of Scripture throughout the day, thinking about what it means, employing what it calls us to do, or praying the words to God. In short, the word should be on our mind often throughout the day. Therefore, put some thought into remembering. If you need helps, sign up for daily Bible verses to be sent to your email, write a verse on a note card, or put something in your path that will cause you to think of Scripture.
Ninth, obey the Word. After all is said and done, if we don’t obey the Word, there was very little value in reading it. When our hearts are obedient to the Word of God, we will find that the Lord wants to reveal truth to us and deepen our joy. If our motives are anything other than to obey, God knows. We cannot fool the God who knows our hearts. However, the Word of God is powerful to do an amazing work so read even if your motives are not right on track. Know that there is a great reward and joy for obeying the LORD God!
Today, we conclude this three part series on how to better read the Bible. I hope these 9 tips for better Bible reading offer some useful guidance for you. Remember, they are just tips, not a guideline for every single time you read. The BIG thing is just READ! Any chance you get, read! Get up in the morning, read the Word! Read before you go to bed! Read, read, read!!!
Howe about … 9 steps to better Bible reading, part 2
First, make a plan to spend time in Scripture. Otherwise it doesn’t happen.
Second, go to Scripture believing it is the Word of God … because it is!!!
Third, eliminate distractions. Yes, this means one will need to turn off the television, radio, phone, x-box, children, etc. Unfortunately, one cannot always stop all distractions, but don’t intentionally build in distractions. A distraction by definition is “something that diverts attention” according to the Encarta Dictionary. The problem with allowing distractions, the ones that can be controlled, is that it will divert our attention away from the Lord … which was the very purpose of reading the Bible to begin with! This action is much easier to understand than it is to accomplish, but having distractions will really steal away the joy of spending time with God.
Fourth, pray. Ask the Spirit of God to grant understanding of what is read. Without the help of the Spirit of God, one cannot begin to understand the heart of God. Know that the Spirit of God desires to reveal truth to you, but He waits to be asked. Pray about where to read and how much to read. Because God is alive and active, He has a specific message that He wants people to discover. If unsure about where to read, do not despair. Start reading somewhere; literally anywhere. The heart of God can be discovered on any given page of the Bible!
Fifth, read. Read and reread the text. It takes reading multiple times to get the idea of what is going on usually. Read it slowly or read it out loud. Read the context. The context is often a chapter or two before and after the chapter one is reading. Sometimes, the context is the whole book. For example, some of the letters in the New Testament were written with the expectation that they would be read in a worship service all at once. These are good to try to read the whole book at once before one attempts to dig into a specific aspect of the passage. Read some cross references to see what other sections of the Bible are saying about the idea or topic. Cross references often reveal amazing and mind-blowing truths that one will discover when one digs through the cross references (often found in the margins of personal Bibles).
Sixth, ask questions. Ask questions about the passage. It is not sacrilegious or blasphemous to ask questions. On the contrary, questions reveal a desire to know truth. Basic questions are extremely helpful: who, what, where, when, and my favorite why. Who is the passage talking about, who is involved, or who is the author writing to? What is going on or what is the central message of this text? Where and when did this happen and how does that compare with today or here? Why was this written and why is this important? How does this help me know God? How should I respond to the message that I have just discovered? If questions arise that are not satisfactorily answered, bring them to another believer who might know. Bring them to a Bible study leader or even a pastor … these people love questions!
I hope you are daily seeking the God who loved us, created us, died for us, and wants to walk with us through the discipline of daily reading the Bible. What blessings you will discover as you spend this time with Him day by day! Blessings to you in your readings!
Howe about … 9 steps to better Bible reading (part 1 of 3)
You’ve probably heard me say it at least once or twice by now that the key to our walk with God is through Bible reading. We must go to the Word of God (the Bible) on a regular basis if we want to have a chance of surviving as a Christian. Not one of us attempts to live our physical lives without eating. In the same way, neither should we go through our spiritual life without feeding our soul. God has given us an incredible gift by giving us His Word. The Bible reveals the heart, nature, and character of the living God. Without Scripture, we would only have our own desire of what we want God to be, and that, my friends, only misleads and deceives us. So, I wanted to take some time to explore how we can better read and understand the Bible.
First, we must make a plan to spend time in Scripture. I love some clichés and I abhor others, but I like this one: if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. When it comes to having time in God’s Word, we simply don’t often have the desire or the “time” to be in it. You will find that you can’t seem to find the time or you will happen upon some free time, but not want to fill it with reading the Bible because there are so many other things to do or you forget or blah, blah, fill in the blank. Reading the Bible is an exercise that we must plan to do. We, literally, might need to write it in as a meeting on our personal schedules. Do whatever it takes to make it happen. This is a matter of priority and planning. Value your spirit enough to feed yourself with good food daily.
The truth is Bible reading is a spiritual discipline. Wise Christians who are walking with God in a sweet relationship do not just happen. Just like a really muscular, trim body doesn’t just happen, neither does a spiritually fit person just happen. It takes time and intentional effort (all made possible by God). The whole foundation of physical fitness is in nutrition. In like fashion, the whole foundation for a solid spiritual condition is Bible reading. Therefore, if living in an awesome relationship with the Creator of the Universe being intimately guided by His hand is what you desire, then build upon the foundation of serious, intentional Bible reading.
Second, we should go to Scripture as if the Bible is the Word of God. Have you ever heard someone say that you get what you expect to get out of something? There is a reality to this notion. When we sit down with our Bibles, if we recognize these words as from the heart of God to us, then we find our hearts ready to accept what is written. If we come to Scripture as if it is a mere historical document, then at best, we get some academic knowledge of history of other people’s relationship with a deity. One of these mindsets might make us smarter, but the other will transform our lives.
If you are struggling with the idea of whether God exists or not, coming to the Bible with that mindset described above will be next to impossible. But, may I challenge you to go to the Bible and ask yourself as you read, “Does this book tell me the truth about myself, my condition, and the human condition in general?” Also, ask yourself, “If there is a god, is it crazy to think that he would want to communicate vital truths to his creation so that they could spend an eternity with him rather than in a place of punishment and torment?” Also, I would encourage you to grab a book by Josh McDowell called The New Evidence that Demands a Verdict available on Amazon.com and just about any Christian book store.
Implementation is the most crucial aspect of this discipline. So, take a moment now to look at your week ahead and plan a time to read the Bible each day for at least a half an hour, (work up to an hour). Then, protect that time as if it were a meeting with your boss that you aren’t allowed to change. If someone calls, ignore the call until your time in the Word is complete. Moms, you might have to be particularly flexible with your time because you might have young interruptions, I mean children. But, it is possible. Happy reading!!!
