Sweat the small stuff.

There is ginormous power in small things.

Take the atom; it is the smallest piece of matter only visible under a powerful microscope. However, if you split this little rascal under the right conditions, you better find some serious cover. We should be careful when we stand in judgment and demean small things.

In Matthew 25:23 Jesus uses a story to teach and towards the end of his story he says this of the faithful slave,

“‘Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.”

Jesus wants us to know the truth about our future, and that is our future is hitched to the present day small acts of obedience. Faithful in the small areas of your life explode into substantial opportunities to serve Christ. You see there are no meaningless small acts of faithfulness in the Christian life.

Noah’s one act of obedience, building the ark, took 43,800 days of faithfulness. Small twenty-four hour chunks of time compounded by faithfulness was the secret sauce to Noah’s accomplishment.  Obedience to Jesus is a thousand little steps in the right direction.

If you prefer to see this in an equation here is the mathematical formula that we should all memorize:

SMALL OBEDIENT ACTS  X  FAITHFULNESS  = FUTURE OPPORTUNITY

Start today,  take the small things of your day as sacred moments. See the interrupting phone call or the extra patience needed with a friend or the pesky student or the nagging reminder of an overdue thank you note as the small opportunities which open your future. Squeeze out every ounce of faithfulness today.

Remember the multitude was fed by a little boy who was faithful in packing a lunch that morning.

Criticism, not a spiritual gift.

I have never met a creative critic.

Critics never have to build anything; they just demolish ideas and people. Tearing down is cheap labor. Demo work is faster than construction and trashing your bedroom is simpler than cleaning it. Courage is rarely found in the life of a critic.

Our English word “critic” comes from the Greek word “kritikos” which speaks of the action to separate. The work of a critic is to sit in judgment, speaking words that separate a person and their idea from everyone else in the room. The critic only exalts themselves by the process of lowering another.

President Theodore Roosevelt said this of the critic,

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood.

The Apostle Paul offers the solution to criticism when he wrote Ephesians 4:29, “let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.”

Corrupting talk means “rotten speech.” What a great description of critical words, rotten to the core speech. Finding a good word that “fits” both time and task is the job of every Christ follower. Let’s face it; critical words should never fit well in a Christ follower’s mouth.

When you are filled with the spirit of the living God you should be at least as kind as the Helpful Honda people in blue shirts. Right? Mark Twain once said, “he could live ninety days on a good compliment.” So grace someone with your words.  Help that person live well for the next ninety days.

Twenty-Nineteen

Fear and faith share one thing in common, both are looking to the future. This next trip around the sun in 2019 will you fear it or will you faith it?

Let me explain why faith is a better way to go.

Remember for a moment, the Israelites, as they walked into the promise land after wondering for forty years. Like them, you stand at the edge of a new land, and it is called 2019. I love, love, love what Joshua said to the people of God as they were about to enter the promised land. In Joshua 3:5 he said,

“Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.”

This cry of Joshua was for a fierce faith, not fear. Faith, not because the people were so great or life in the promised land would be easy. The cry of faith came from the reality their God is great, and He would take every step with them.

The word Joshua uses for “wonders” is “pala.”  This Hebrew word is interesting as it carries the idea of “extraordinary work in the midst of extreme difficulty.” Read that one more time. This type of work is right in God’s sweet spot.  He holds a Ph.D. in extraordinary. This sweet spot of His is what births courage in the heart of man.

So courage up. Your God has 2019 by the tail.

Let his extraordinary faithfulness fuel your courage. Some of you remember the movie “We Bought a Zoo.” Such a good movie and the title explains the true story of this family; they bought a zoo. In the midst of real fear, Benjamin Mee played by Matt Damon has a great line in the movie,

“you know, sometimes all you need is twenty-seconds of insane courage.”

This is a good word for those who follow Jesus into this new year. All you need is twenty-seconds of insane courage at just the right moment. In those twenty-seconds of insane courage, Peter got out of the boat, David picked up the first stone, and Esther stepped into the palace. Now is your turn. Grab hold of your twenty-seconds.

God-size your dreams. 
Hunger holiness. 
Chase purpose. 
Leverage obedience.
Live loved. 
Burn ships.
Sharpen the razor edge of the Word. 
Exhale joy.

God is going to do wonders among you in 2019.

GO MINISTRY

Go Spotlight:  Connect2 Ministries was begun by Crossroads member, Greg Barshaw, and works to connect churches in the United States with churches in the developing world. Through these partnerships, teams are sent on mission trips to their orphanage homes, where they can help provide resources, do maintenance work on the buildings, and love the children in the homes. The ministry currently has two homes for homeless, orphaned, and at-risk children in Haiti. They are also currently building the Vocational Training Center, which will empower both the local community and the children in the homes as they reach adulthood by offering education in practical skills such as tailoring, auto mechanics, baking and animal husbandry, as well as small business management.

Joy at Christmas?

Have you ever thought about the fact God never commands a feeling? You never read in the Bible be happy, be nostalgic or be melancholy. A feeling is like a bus, a new one comes every ten minutes. Feelings just happen.

The very first Christmas feelings were going around like the common cold. The teenage mother of Jesus was an ocean of feelings along with her bewildered yet to be husband. Their parents?  Well as a parent, I am sure they had a few feelings of their own. Not the perfect Christmas story in their minds. Finally, there was the overbooked inn, pesky animals, and the itchy hay creating a really awkward Christmas photo.

So where does the joy fit?

In the midst of the crazy was a real raw joy. What was born on Christmas day was joy incarnate. You see, a friend of mine describes joy this way,

“Joy is choosing to believe that God is in control of every detail of your life.”

Joy is a “think thing” not a “feel thing.” The birth of Jesus is living proof that God is in control of every detail of the Universe. In the chaos of that time when there was more questions than answers God provided the savior of the world. Joy was now a choice.

Maybe your Christmas or your life right now is out of control. Now is the moment to let feelings feel and make a choice. Choose joy in the chaos. Joy is choosing to accept the “all things” in my life have crossed the sovereign desk of God. He is moving your life along with every molecule in the universe towards His excellent plan just as he did that first crazy Christmas. He was in control of every detail of life for Joseph, for Mary, and Jesus. And for you.

Choose joy!
