A Great "Pick-Up" Line?



A UNC football player was 
visiting a Yankee relative
in Boston over Spring Break. 
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?"

The Bad News about the Good News -




Not long ago, someone told me about a pastor who stood at the pulpit one Sunday and announced this to his people: "Folks, I have some bad news, some good news, and some bad news." He had everyone's attention. "The bad news is that the roof on this church is shot. We have to replace it. But the good news is - we have the money. The bad news is - it's in your wallets!"


Interesting thought, huh? The money is there for the work God wants to do. But it's still in our wallets, our bank accounts, our toys.

Recently, a friend who is the head of a major missions organization said, "It's taking our missionaries three years to get their support raised. And we've tried every creative means we can to change that, but nothing has worked." The experience of their missionaries is echoed by hundreds, and maybe thousands, of missionaries. Here they are ready to get to the people God has called them to reach and they have to wait three years because they can't get enough financial support. Is it because there's no money to send them? Probably not. The money is there, it's just tied up in our wallets. And meanwhile, on the other end, people go on dying without Christ.

In our word for today from the Word of God in Romans 10:14, God asks a series of questions that are very revealing and convicting - uncomfortably revealing really. Pouring out His heart for the people who don't yet know His Son died for them, God asks, "How, then, can they call on the One they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent?"

Now where does this bottom line responsibility rest for whether or not lost people ever hear the Good News about Jesus? With the messenger? Apparently not. It's with the sender. God takes the process of the unreached hearing the message all the way back to its source - a sender. For 2,000 years the Great Commission of Jesus has depended on two kinds of people sacrificially playing their position - the senders and the sendees.

In what may be the fourth quarter of God's game on earth, there is so much work to be done in Jesus' name. And it's going to take money. Money we have tied up in things other than what God gave it to us for. He sacrificed His Son so the lost could be rescued. Many of His workers and messengers are willing to sacrifice to tell the lost about His Son. Rescuing the spiritually dying has always meant sacrifice and no follower of Jesus is exempt. We can't delegate the sacrifices to a few spiritual warriors. God intends for all of us to spend and be spent in the cause for which His Son was spent.

Lottie Moon was a great missionary hero, who made real great impact on 19th Century China. She asked some hard questions. She said, "Where is the silver and the gold that should be in the Lord's treasury to send out those men and women who are asking to be sent? Alas! Some are adding more fields to their broad lands. Some are spending in selfish indulgences. So these lost souls go down to death without ever having heard the name of Jesus. In the day of judgment, at whose door will lie this sin?"

By God's grace, let's release the funds God gave us to send His messengers. Let's transfer funds in our account on earth to our eternal account in heaven. The soldiers of Christ are waiting for the bullets they need to win the battle, and it's in our hands!

Doug asks, "I know you're crazy about that little daughter
of yours, Bill. What are you going to do when she starts to
date?"

Bill says, "I figure I'll take the first young man aside,
put my arm around his shoulder, and pull him close to me
so that only he can hear. Then I'll say, "Do you see that
sweet, little young lady? She's my only daughter, and I
love her very much. If you were thinking about touching,
kissing, or being physically affectionate to her in any
way, just remember...I don't mind going back to prison."

How about a little history?

On this day in 1842 over 500 Mexican troops led by Rafael
Vasquez invade Texas, briefly occupy San Antonio and then
head back to the Rio Grande.

In 1904 Nikola Tesla, in Electrical World and Engineer,
describes the process of ball lightning formation.

Woodrow Wilson is inaugurated for a second term as President
of the United States on this day in 1917.

And in 1933 President Franklin D. Roosevelt declares a "bank
holiday", closing all United States banks and freezing all
financial transactions during the Great Depression.

The Roman emperor Diocletian, following an edict in 303 A.D.,
failed to stamp the Bible out. The French Revolution could not
crush it with secular philosophy (Rousseau, one of its heroes,
converted to Christianity). The Communists failed to stamp it
out with atheism and political ideology. One might well ask why
this book has been banned, burned, and bludgeoned with such
animosity and scorn. The great Reformation hero John Calvin
responds in this way: "Whenever people slander God's word.
they show they feel within its power, however unwillingly or
reluctantly." - Joe Boot

God isn't late with His promise as some measure lateness. He is restraining Himself on account of you, holding back the End because He doesn't want anyone lost. He's giving everyone space and time to change. But when the Day of God's Judgment does come, it will be unannounced, like a thief... - 2 Peter 3

Professor Howdy said...

But God put His love on the line for us by offering His Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to Him. Now that we are set right with God by means of this sacrificial death, the consummate blood sacrifice, there is no longer a question of being at odds with God in any way. If, when we were at our worst, we were put on friendly terms with God by the sacrificial death of His Son, now that we're at our best, just think of how our lives will expand and deepen by means of His resurrection life! Now that we have actually received this amazing friendship with God, we are no longer content to simply say it in plodding prose. We sing and shout our praises to God through Jesus, the Messiah! - Romans 5
