|The Peacemakers |
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” Matthew 5:9 (ESV)
Often people refer to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speeches in excerpts and sound bites. We’d do well, however, to remember these words from the “I Have a Dream” speech:
"In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred."
Our nation is more divided now than ever before in my lifetime. We must be careful not to confuse hatred and bitterness with righteous indignation. One leads toward God’s heart being revealed. The other comes from the evil one.

|In-N-Out Burger |
“Let what you say be simply 'Yes' or 'No'; anything more than this comes from evil.” Matthew 5:37 (ESV)
One company’s employees were absent from the fast food worker driven fight for a $15 dollar minimum wage. That company: In-N-Out Burger.
In-N-Out starts their employees at $10.50 an hour and allows them to earn as much as $120,000 annually. That’s the highest of any fast food chain in the country. They also provide vision, medical dental benefits. Needless to say they have very low turnover.
Merit based pay always produces a better product, greater service and more productive employees.
Did I mention this is a Christian based company?

|Every Joint Supplies |
Its not by chance that Jesus refers to his Church as “The Body.” Just as it is with our physical bodies every member has a distinct role and function to fulfill.
Unfortunately, in the era of celebrity Christianity we’ve reduced the concept of ministry solely to what occurs in what is often little more than Sunday productions and performances.

|Standing with Israel |
President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital came under assault, forcing the U.S. to use its veto power the stop a U.N. Security Council resolution demanding that Washington reverse course and resisting its policy shift.
Stop me if you’ve heard this before, the America, the only nation standing with Israel before the United Nations.

|Chris ‘the Thrill’ Matthews |
While discussing President Trump’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital MSNBC host Chris Matthews said Southern Christians were,
“crazy with their ideas about Israel, which is I don’t know mythical. They don’t understand the situation over there and how tricky it is ethnically and tribally. They don’t care, because its a religious belief.”

|Interested Conflict |
We’ve now learned that Bob Mueller’s Special Counsel investigatory team is full of anti-Trump zealots.
Not least of which is Peter Strzok.
Mueller quietly removed Strzok from the Trump investigation after the Inspector General revealed evidence showing just how deep Strzok’s animus for the President ran.

|Offensive Persuasion |
When you read the David vs. Goliath account in 1 Samuel 17 you’ll notice David never once acknowledges him as giant. He only mentions him as an uncircumcised Philistine who dared to defy the LORD of hosts.
Then, when the battle raged, David doesn’t lag back and wait for Goliath to make the first move. David charged Goliath, sling in hand, armed with full persuasion of God’s faithfulness.

|Jesus, the Messiah |
These words were shared between Cleopas and his companion on the 7 mile walk from Jerusalem to Emmaus as Jesus, in resurrected form, used the Hebrew scriptures to reveal himself to them as the Messiah.
There are at least 109 distinct Biblical prophecies the Messiah had to fulfill.
The mathematical probability of such a feat occurring is astoundingly absurd, yet that absurdity is satisfied… in Jesus, the Messiah.

|Absolute Confidence |
Simeon spoke these words when he met baby Jesus. The Holy Spirit revealed that he would not die until he saw the Messiah. Immediately upon meeting Jesus in the temple, Simeon held Him and worshiped god saying, “Now you are letting your servant depart in peace, according to your Word, for my eyes have seen your salvation.”

|Flame Quenchers |
40 days of twice daily taunting from Goliath sent Saul and the Israelite army reeling in fear. But David’s passion for YHWH, conviction and full persuasion stirred King Saul.
When people are on fire for God it often provokes others to glob on to that fire.
But we must be careful to resist the well meaning overtures of the flameless by-standers.
