John Chrysostom (347–407), archbishop of Constantinople, said this about friendship: “Such is friendship, that through it we love places and seasons; for as . . . flowers drop their sweet leaves on the ground around them, so friends impart favor even to the places where they dwell.”

Just Thinking

Mon - Fri 1pm.

Do you like to be in control? Most people want to be in control of their lives and the decisions they make. Part of the appeal of the new age movement is that it allows people to be their own god, without being accountable to anyone. Ravi Zacharias looks at how dangerous this thirst for power can be, today on Just Thinking.

Selected Scriptures

Courage is just another word for inner strength. Courage is the determination to hang in there, to persevere, endure hardship, fear, and all manner of difficulty. The fact is, it's impossible to live victoriously for Jesus Christ without courage. We cannot honour God in a godless culture without courage. The real test of courage isn't so much for those fighting on the battlefield…or for witnessing in the midst of opposition…or even for facing down a burglar in our homes.

3335 Fred De Frain Classic: (Alcoholism, Failure, Stealing) Fred grew up stealing from his alcoholic father, eventually drinking himself, earning a prison record. He drifts from job to job and place to place, marries and then leaves his wife. He ends up visiting missions everywhere he goes, and God's Word echoes through his head in his travels. He eventually receives Christ as his Savior, pays back what he stole and preaches to groups about how he came to know freedom through Christ.

Dad walked into Pedro's room to say good night. "You've been so quiet, son. What's on your mind?" asked Dad.

"Oh, hi, Dad." Thirteen-year-old Pedro rolled onto his back in bed and put his hands behind his head. "During Missions Week at church, we heard Gordon Johnson talk about what he does in Africa," said Pedro. "His pictures were awesome, and his work seems so worthwhile. I wanted to be an engineer, but now I wonder if God wants me to be a missionary instead."

Dad saw the puzzled frown on Pedro's face. "You don't seem very excited about the idea," observed Dad.

"Well, it seems like a hard job--learning a new language and getting used

to a different country. Sometimes you have to deal with heat and bugs and snakes--though I wouldn't mind those so much." Pedro propped himself up on one elbow. "But I might not be good at missionary work. What if God calls me to do something I can't do?"

Dad thought for a moment, then reached over to Pedro's desk and picked up his baseball mitt. "What's this?" asked Dad.

Pedro laughed. "It's my ball glove."

Dad walked over to the corner of the room and propped the glove against the wall. "Let's see," he said, looking around. "This will work." He took a ball and tossed it at the glove. Although the ball hit the center of the glove, it rolled to the floor. Dad picked up the glove and shook his head in disgust. "This glove is a total failure," he declared.

Pedro furrowed his eyebrows. "The glove can't catch the ball by itself. It has to have a hand inside."

Dad smiled. "You're right," he agreed. "You put your hand inside the glove to give it guidance and strength--you give it power to catch the ball. In the same way, God will give you the ability to do whatever He calls you to do. He has a purpose for your life, Pedro, just like this glove has a purpose. God will never prop you in a corner and leave you alone. His mighty hand does the work when you're willing to be used--whether it's as an engineer here in the United States or in some other work in some other place."

How About You?
Have you thought about God's plan for your life? If He asks you to tell someone about Jesus, somebody, He'll help you do it. If He asks you to be cheerful when things go wrong, He'll help you with that. If He wants you to do some particular job, He'll help you do it right. Never be afraid
of God's calling. He will use you, if you are willing--both now and throughout your lifetime. Depend on Him in whatever you do.

Devotion:


Verse: Romans 10:13

Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.


Imagine you were there when the star was first sighted. You watch as the wise men, the magi, notice something new. “Look at this bright new star,” they exclaim, “it must mean something important. A king? Yes, a king has been born.”

A king? You wonder about a king who has his very own star. You listen again, for the magi are making plans. “We will go to worship this new king. Gifts—we must bring gifts.” You are told to gather gold, incense, and myrrh to present to the newborn king.

You travel many miles, many days. You feel exhausted, but each night the star appears and your strength returns. Finally, you arrive in Jerusalem, dusty and tired. No one in Jerusalem has heard of the newborn king. How strange. How could they not know that the star for this king has appeared in the sky? You watch as King Herod shouts for his priests and teachers. They scurry around and finally announce that the star must be for someone born in the town of Bethlehem. Herod sends you on your way with the royal command “Go! Make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, bring me a report. Then I can go and worship him too.”

Finally, finally, you arrive. There he is—the newborn king! You kneel before him and give to him the gifts you have brought with you. You are sure that he is looking right at you…..

You didn’t travel with the wise men. You live 2000 years after Jesus was born. You know Jesus is the Light of the world. What do you have to offer a newborn king? I Peter 2:9 says to “declare the praises of him (God) who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” Be a like the magi; worship Jesus today.

Discussion Guide:

To whom do you give presents at Christmas? The people you love, right? And, maybe more than that, the people who love you back. It's not easy being nice to people who don't like you, or who have hurt you. It would be even harder to give them a present. But that is exactly what God does for us. He gives us the gift of salvation through his Son Jesus Christ even though we are not his friends, even though we sin against him.

How do we respond to such a gift? Perhaps the words of this Christmas carol say it best:

What can I give him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb.
If I were a wise man, I would do my part.
Yet what can I give him: give him my heart.
("In the Bleak Midwinter" - Christina Rosetti.)
