SIN IS THE PROBLEM. JESUS IS THE SOLUTION

It is relatively easy for us to recognize sin in one another. It is much more difficult to recognize it in ourselves. Yet Paul writes, “none of us is righteous, not even one.” We tend to think of ourselves...

YOUR TICKET TO HEAVEN

What if God Himself asked you, “Why should I let you into My heaven?” How would you answer? I have used that question for many years to determine someone’s understanding of salvation. Some say, “Well, that’s a pointless question, because...

"Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,  by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body,  and since we have a great priest over the house of God,  let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings..."

Ask most 20-somethings to name their biggest fears and you’ll notice a few themes: career uncertainty, financial pressures compounded by giant student debt, relational stress. After a few years, it’s not uncommon fo that once idealistic, world-changer mentality to have crumbled under the daily grind. What does the future hold? Will everything work out in the end? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thankfully, for the Jesus follower, we know that no matter what ups or downs we face in life, God r mains in control. As we reflect on God’s promises to Israel during an uncertain future, let’s take a look at a few of God’s promises to help hold onto hope while navigating the uncertainty of life: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PROVERBS 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PHILIPPIANS 1:6: “Being confident of this, that H who began a good work in your will carry it on to completion.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ROMANS 15:13: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope...”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ISAIAH 30:21: “Whether you turn to the right or to the left your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, this is the way; walk in it.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With so much unrest in our world, we can all worry about the future, it can be a scary, uncertain place ; but God says, “I will never leave you or forsake you” (Hebrews 14:5b).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can’t know the future, but we can know the One who does and that should give us confidence to face whatever the future holds.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s much more difficult to identify sin in ourselves.Yet, Paul writes, “none of us is righteous, not even one” (Romans 3:10). Still, we tend to think of ourselves as the exception. But when it comes to sin, there are no exceptions. Until we understand the holiness of God, it is almost impossible for us to clearly see our own sin.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Years ago, the London Times ran an article encouraging its readers to respond to the question, “What is wrong with the world?” I’m sure the editor must have received many responses, but the following response might have taken a few reads before it’s profound truth sunk in: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Dear Sir,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In response to your question, “What is wrong with the world?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yours truly.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We ARE what’s wrong with the world. God’s standard is absolute righteousness, and when we b gin to see His holiness, we understand how short we fall. No matter how skilled we ,ay be at hiding our sins, we cannot make them disappear. Only God is able to save us. He has chose. To save us through His Son. That’s why Jesus came to earth, why He died and rose again — to pay for our sins on the cross, offering us victory over sin and death through His resurrection.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our sin is —and will always be — the problem. Jesus Christ is the solution. That’s why the message is called Good News!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How would you respond? Over the years, I’ve come across a few common answers that help clarify someone’s understanding of salvation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Response #1: “There is no God.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because Christianity is about a relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ, if a person doesn’t believe in God, then they have no relationship with Him. When death arrives, there is only eternal separation from God in hell. If that person rejected God all their life, the last person they would want to spend eternity with is Him. God loves us enough to give us free will to choose or reject a relationship with Him.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Response #2: “I’ve done more good than bad.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is a complete misunderstanding of Christianity. The Bible says if we’re going to get into heaven thru good deeds, we must be perfect. Nobody—except Jesus— is perfect. So, we need God’s Grace and mercy to get in. This comes through faith that sinless Jesus paid the penalty for all our sins through His death on the cross. That’s why His grace is so amazing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Response #3: “No one is so bad or had done things soo awful, that they CANNOT be forgiven through Jesus’ shed blood on the cross.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
THIS is  by b grace of God is so amazing. Jesus died for sinners. That means that He died for us all— no matter what we’ve done. No sin is stronger than the forgiveness of the cross. That is GREAT news for everyone. Will you believe it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Quite simply, it’s the act of praying on behalf of others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Paul tells us about Epaphras, a member of the church in Colosse, who “is always laboring earnestly for you in his prayers, that you may stand  perfect and fully assured in all the will of God” (Colossians 4:12). In other words, Epaphras prayed for the people in the church to be spiritually mature, to be complete and whole. And also for them to fulfill the will of God. Now that is an example of intercessory prayer — it’s all about fulfilling the ministry and mission of the church!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of the concerns we often have about own church’s prayer ministry is that the requests we receive at overwhelmingly for those who are sick. Now, there’s no doubt that the church is called to pray for the sick. But so often it seems the church is absolutely obsessed with praying sick sinners out of heaven and totally oblivious to praying lost sinners out of hell.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We need to have the right priority when it comes to our intercession. It’s about praying for “Christ’s kingdom to come and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” That means focusing on the spiritual welfare of the church and it’s mission, as we remember the physical needs of those who are sick.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s also an erroneous idea in contemporary Christian culture that those who offer up intercessory prayers are a special class of “super-Christians,” called by God to a specific ministry. The Bible is clear that ALL Jesus followers are called to be intercessory. All Christians have the Holy Spirit in their hearts, and just as He intercedes for us (Rom. 8:26-27), we are to intercede for others.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s not the most uplifting definition - is it? Being patient is hard because as humans,s, we have a tendency to want what we want at that particular mo,ent. Unfortunately, it see,s that life is often a test of patience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I struggle a lot with waiting - whether it’s sitting in traffic or at a restaurant. Why, I’d rather drive five miles out of the way than sit stuck in traffic. I get impatient when i, facing a deadline and get interrupted, or when so,wine says they’ll do something and then fall through. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Where do you struggle with patience? Do you ever pray, “Lord just give me some patience right now!” Let me suggest a few practical ways to learn patience:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) Take a deep breath and pray for self-control.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) When people anger you, if possible, retreat for a moment. Take some time to cool down and get control of your emotions.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) Confront fairly, seeking to listen and under — first. When needed, be sure to forgive.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4) Remember, the greatest motive for patience is remembering Gods patience with us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Patience is a precious commodity, for its a powerful way to win the respect of others and turn a potential, enemy into a friend.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sadly, as guys, we often skip the instruction manual, thinking we will just figure it out along the way. Yet, when things go wrong, it’s always nice to have that manual to go back to — isn’t it? Well, there IS a manual for Iife (the Bible) and we certainly shouldn’t skip it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, for the dads looking for a little fathering advice, take a look at Colossians 3:21: “Fathers, don’t provoke our children, instead bring the. Up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Don’t provoke your children”— That means don’t make unrealistic demands. Don’t crush their spirit by being aloof or overly strict. Every child has a fragile psyche that needs to be built up, not torn down.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Bring them up in discipline” — Discipline should be fair and consistent. They need to know the boundaries and know there are negative consequences if ignored. This provides children with security and helps them know they are loved.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“... and the instruction of the Lord.” Discipline precedes instruction. But discipline without instruction exasperates children. They need Dad to teach them right from wrong — in love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s certainly not easy being a good father or father figure, but we have a great model in our Heavenly Father, revealed to us through Jesus Christ. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Would you try to make a couple extra bucks and stay late in the office? Would you spend time with family or express thanks to those who’ve helped you along the way? Would you try to work things out between you and God?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most of us have a tendency to prioritize the temporal and material at the neglect of the eternal and relational. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But none of us know the number of days God has planned for us. So, don’t put off until tomorrow the really important things you can do today - like getting right with God. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
God became a man in the person of Jesus to show us how. Start there, and show your family how much you love them. Surprise them by occasionally coming home early. Tell them you love them. Plan fun things to do with them. Help someone you care about — someone who needs you at the office, in the neighborhood, or maybe someone who simply needs a friend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It may not be your last day here on earth, but it might just become a great day for you and those you care about.How do you find the possibility of freedom and peace in a world where there seems to be no rest? The idea that the pace of life seems to continually increase stress and worry is a universal concept. There seems to be no end to the demands on our time and energy. Are you tired of the constant busyness that seems to consume our lives? I know I am.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There’s a solution. It isn’t one that offers escape from the demands of life, but one that guarantees rest in the midst of the rat race and the fast pace of life. Jesus says, “Come to me if you are tired and burdened. I’ll make your load lighter, and help you carry your burden.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jesus offers rest amidst the stress.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Christ doesn’t always remove us from life’s demanding situations. Instead, He asks us to let HIM show us how to handle life’s demands. Jesus wants us to face each day and each challenge with HIM. Walk with Christ daily and trust Him for guidance and wisdom to handle whatever comes next. In this way, you’ll finally experience true rest amidst the stress.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Many questions probably come to mind such as: WHY AM I HERE? IS JESUS ACTUALLY GOD? IS THERE REALLY A DEVIL? However, the most common question asked is often, “WHY IS THERE SO MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remembering the countless wars and terrorist attacks through the years, the injustice and natural disasters that cause so much pain and heartache — it’s easy to find ourselves questioning God’s character or asking why? “If God is all powerful and all knowing, then why doesn’t He prevent bad things from happening? If H can’t do anything about it, then He isn’t much of a God is He?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
God gets blamed for a lot of man’s evil, when God has given man a free will, ironically, the more victimized people are by man’s evil, the more they tend to blame God. Yet, we’re not created as computers programmed to do good or evil. Like God, we can make choices.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, why does an all loving and all powerful God allow suffering and evil? No answer is adequate. God’s main concern is that in the midst of our heartbreak and confusion, that we trust God to bring good from the bad. He did it when mankind murdered His innocent Son. He can do it with every tragedy we face, both big and small. We need only to trust Him.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Why? Paul was showing interest in Greek culture. He showed appreciation for Greek culture. It showed the. That he was well read. Paul was earning the right to be heard by a group of people who might have easily dismissed him as an irrelevant and ignorant foreigner. Instead, they were curious to know more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So what can we learn from how Paul connects with the intellectual elite?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) FIND COMMON GROUND. Paul quoted a Greek poet and began his conversation by discussing one of the many idols the Greeks worshiped (Acts 17:22-28). Rather than condemning from the start, Paul found common ground and won the right to be heard.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) IDENTIFY A FELT NEED. Why did the ancient Greeks worship so many different idols, gods? They were searching for something to believe in — they were searching for God even though they didn’t know who He was. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We do the same thing. We search for value, purpose, and identity in money, career, success or relationships — our modern day idols. But God is the only one who fully satisfy this search.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) BE BOLD. Paul didn’t tip-toe around the truth. Without quoting a single verse (the Greeks didn’t know the Bible), everything Paul shared came from God’s Word. In the end, he challenged them to repent — to turn away from their old ways of thinking and living. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With whom will you share? Don’t just dismiss a person because of their differences. Follow Paul’s example and take the time to find some common ground. Maybe then you’ll earn the right to be heard.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

An Update From Bryant !

 

Many who are part of our Right From The Heart
family may not know that I have been the Senior
Pastor of Johnson Ferry Church in Marietta,
Georgia, for the last 37 years. A few months ago,
I felt the Lord leading me to begin the search
process for my successor, which as I’m sure you
can imagine, wasn’t an easy decision to make!
But, it was clear to me that God was the source
of this change, so the church is in the process of
searching for God’s man to follow me in the role
of Senior Pastor. Of course, we don’t know how
long this process will take, but we are sure that God’s timing is perfect.

“So,” you ask, “what happens to Right From The
Heart after you step down from pastoring the
church?” Well, I can assure you of one thing:

I STILL PLAN TO LEAD RIGHT FROM THE HEART!

I’m excited that I will have more time to focus
on our mission to “Reach and disciple people
for Jesus Christ through the use of media.” God
has blessed this ministry in so many ways, and I
know that through your continued prayers, your
financial support, and our dedication to be good
stewards of what God has graciously allowed us
to do, we will be able to reach even more people
with the Good News of Jesus Christ!

In addition, I will be adding new aspects to our
ministry at RFTH in leading Bible study tours to
Israel and Paul’s missionary journeys, as well
as mentoring younger pastors. I humbly ask for
your prayers for all of us at Right From The Heart
as this transition takes place. Thank you and
may God bless each of you!
