This message delivered by Jim Bush - November 19, 2017

Slavery is a terrible thing.  The oppression of people in our nation's history is a blight we are struggling yet to remedy.  As much as we oppose slavery, many of us are ourselves slaves, bound in chains of our own making, wasting away in the prison house of financial debt. We are misappropriating God’s resources on vanity and folly and in fraternizing with the enemy (spending on ungodly things). This is not the way God intends for His children to live.

-Romans 13:8

Learning to embrace the boundaries of trust and humility in our relationship with God is one of the most difficult lessons we have to learn.  Once learned the exhilaration of real freedom will leave us breathless in wonder of our awesome God.

In a world where the margins of life are shrinking or disappearing it is imperative that the child of God rediscovers what it means to walk between the lines of God's will.  This message seeks to highlight two fundamental attitudes that every Christian needs to model and embrace at the very core of who they are in Christ.

What do you do when you learn you are headed the wrong way, that you have made disastrous choices?  You recalculate and redirect your course.  The Bible calls this repentance.  Without this recalculation and the forgiveness of Christ we are lost.

Scripture tells us that the tongue has the power of life and death, but also tells us that it is untamable--at least by us.  Only the Spirit can bring the tongue under control.  Why are we so quick to excuse our own verbal assualts and indiscretions?

There is a whole raft of sins that are the fruit of a life devoid of self-control.  Perhaps the most deadly of these (both literally and  figuratively) is "anger."  You can be certain of this:  anger is an enemy of everything the Holy Spirit seeks to accomplish within you.

If "pride" were a coin, the flip side  of that coin would be "ungodliness".  But ungodliness may not be what you think.  Wickedness and ungodliness are not necessarily the same thing.  Ungodliness in the  words of Jerry Bridges is, "simply living your life with little or no thought of God’s will, His glory, or your dependence upon Him."

Romans 1:18-19      Matthew 6:31-33      James 4:13-17

Blind spots:  we all have them.  Pride is the granddaddy of them all.  Pride is the toxic soil in which all virtues either wither or die.   The problem with blind spots is that the things we fail to see in our own lives we easily see in the lives of others.

The Christian life is not an easy one:  it is a life of self-denial and surrender to the lordship of Christ.  The temptation to give up can be huge.  This is not sprint but a marathon. 

"Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial, for when he has persevered he will receive the crown of life that God has promised those who love Him" (Jas. 1:12)

On several different occasions the people of God in the Old Testament were called upon to renew their covenant with God.  The were called to remember and to re-Member.  Jesus did the same with His disciples.  Today is a day for you also to remember and to re-Member; to recommit to the work God has called us to as the Hillsboro Church of Christ.
