UNC In Yankee Land!


                                   

A UNC football player was visiting 
a Yankee relative in Boston over 
the holidays. He went to a large 
party and met a pretty co-ed. 

He was attempting to start up 

a conversation with the line, 
"Where do you go to school?"

"Yale," she replied.


The UNC student took a big, 

deep breath and shouted,
"WHERE DO YOU GO TO SCHOOL?"

A detective who spent his entire career in plain
clothes quit the police force and bought a farm.

"What kind of crops do you plan to grow?"
the police chief asked the farmer-to-be.

"Carrots and potatoes," the man replied.

"Why carrots and potatoes?" asked the chief.

"Because," answered the ex-detective, . . .
"I'm very fond of undercover crops."

There was a UNC grad driving down the road behind an 18
wheeler, at every stoplight the trucker would get out of the
cab, run back and bang on the trailer door. After seeing this
at several intersections in a row the motorist followed him
until he pulled into a parking lot.

When they both had come to a stop the truck driver once again
jumped out and started banging on the trailer door. The
motorist went up to him and said, "I don't mean to be nosy
but why do you keep banging on that door?"

To which the trucker replied, "Sorry, can't talk now, I have
20 tons of canaries and a 10 ton limit, so i have to keep
half of them flying at all times."

I went on a roller coaster - it was scary
I went with my brother's wife: Terry
I screamed so loud - I started to hyperventilate

The people behind me were holding their ears
While my eyes filled with tears.
Went we went on the second lap
I lost my favorite cap.

I'll never go on one again in my life
With my brother's wife...

What are you looking at? Where are the anchors in your life? In these
uncertain times, I imagine for many of us these questions are more than
rhetorical or philosophical; they are truly heartfelt.

Recently I was struck by this announcement in John’s gospel: “The next day
John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who
takes away the sin of the world!’” (John 1:29). John says, “Look, the
Lamb of God.” My question to you is, what are you looking at? John
emphatically directs our focus: “Look at Jesus.” In fact, he makes this
declaration fifteen times in his gospel. This word is translated in the
King James Version as Behold. Fifteen times he exhorts his readers
to look at Jesus. Will you behold? This is astonishing. This is amazing.
Look at Jesus.

My favorite hymnwriter is Charles Wesley and one of my favorite of his
hymns is called, “Jesus! The Name High Over All.” In the final verse of
his hymn, he sings,

Happy, if with my latest breath
I may but gasp His Name,
Preach Him to all and cry in death,
“Behold, behold the Lamb!”

Now an account of John’s death tells us that that is exactly what
happened. As John lay dying, he uttered those words, “Behold the Lamb,”
and then went to be with the Lord. John is telling us to look at
Jesus--for our hope, for our provision, for our very lives.

In his gospel he invites us to behold Jesus through the lens of seven
signs or miracles. That is, John deliberately chooses seven out of the
many miracles that Jesus performed in order to give us a particular
perspective of who this Jesus is. And the fourth miracle that he records
is Jesus’s feeding of the five thousand. Jesus himself beholds the
crowd--he looks attentively at their need--and he responds with compassion
and provision. We encounter a dramatic miracle: Jesus multiplies fives
loaves and two fish to feed five thousand people. Then John tells us,
“When they had all had enough to eat, [Jesus] said to his disciples,
‘Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.’ So they
gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley
loaves left over by those who had eaten” (6:12-13). What a picture of
amazing abundance: the Son of God demonstrating the abundance of God to a
hungry people.

Perhaps as you look at our world today you wonder if God is still at work
in such a way. I want to encourage you that He is, for in my work and
ministry I have seen his provision. Having been involved in Bible
smuggling in China, I was intrigued to learn of a man named Chris who had
gone out from the UK to do the same. Every three seconds someone in China
becomes a Christian, but there’s a real lack of the Word of God there.
This is what happened to Chris: he and his team stood at the pickup point
in China where they were to meet their contact, who would utter a
password, and they would deliver their Bibles. They arrived with only
minutes to spare, but the contact didn’t show up. Knowing they were being
watched, the team started walking towards the edge of town as though
leaving. Hot and tired, they stopped at a nearby park for a drink of
water, rest, and prayer. It was hard to understand why after all the
difficulties God had brought them through that something had gone so
wrong. They had looked to Him for provision and direction, and yet their
mission had seemingly failed.

Soon the team became aware of three very ragged and dirty men under a tree
behind them. Chris felt the Lord leading him to go over with some water.
When he offered it, one of the men suddenly spoke the password very
clearly in English. The rest of the team hurried over in amazement and
pieced together the men’s story from the little Chinese that they knew.
Two years earlier, God had given a word to these Chinese men in one of
their services that they should plan for this trip. He would lead them to
this park, on this date, and have Bibles ready for them, which would be
brought by white men from far away. Since they were all poor farmers, it
had taken a long time for them to save the money for food and shoes for
the trip. The men had walked for two and a half months, mostly at night
to keep from being arrested. Coming from the far north of China near
Mongolia, they had climbed a range of snowcapped mountains, traveled
through the desert, and crossed several rivers without a compass or any
knowledge of the country. All they could explain was that God had shown
them where to go.

How did they know the password? How could they speak it in English when
they knew no English? How did they survive the heat and the snow without
protective clothing? It could only be God.

When the men saw the Bibles, they cried and praised the Lord for a long
time. They had brought cloth bags with them to carry the Bibles home, and
inside each one was a small watermelon that they had carried all those
miles as a gift of appreciation. Even though they had been without food
for several days, they didn’t eat a single watermelon. The team exchanged
clothes with them and Chris explained what an honor it was to put on those
dirty rags. The shoes were completely worn out, but the team chose to go
barefoot and give up their own shoes, which fit the others perfectly.
Apparently God had chosen each group member based in part on their shoe
size. Many tears were shed as the team prayed for the Chinese and sent
them back home with food and money for their journey.

Jesus is the God of abundance. He is the one within whom this provision,
this abundance, is located. Look to him, behold him, and you will be
amazed.
