  • A fun series on Disney + just ended called The Mandalorian
    Spaghetti Western
    Filled with all kinds of imagery from Far East religion and whatever.
    A phrase the Mandalorian’s say to each other and to others about what their religion and customs require them to do: “This is the Way”
    This is how we have to do things. This is what makes us who we are.
    Trivia - Christians were first called followers of : “The Way”
    Acts 9:1–2 CSB
    1 Now Saul was still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord. He went to the high priest 2 and requested letters from him to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any men or women who belonged to the Way, he might bring them as prisoners to Jerusalem.
    Acts 9:2 CSB
    2 and requested letters from him to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any men or women who belonged to the Way, he might bring them as prisoners to Jerusalem.
    Jesus said,
    John 14:6 CSB
    6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

    In 2020, the Way will be the same as every other year past and every year since,

    The Way to live life is following JESUS.

    But that’s not the question people have asked me this week.
    It’s what do I do tomorrow. Why does my life keep getting messed up? What do I do right know?

    What do I do right now? What is “The Way of Jesus” right now?

    I understand your question.
    I began this December overwhelmed because I had no idea how I was going to make it through completing a lot of individualized education plans for my students which involves giving tests, meeting with parents, talking to experts. Its a process and I had a lot to get down. Then my daughter would come home and my in-laws and my best man and we had the light show and so much more! Overwhelmed I so look forward to getting through it.
    I cannot tell you to turn on your Bible and go to this section of Proverbs 33:25 where it says, “test your special needs student’s in this way and call your families in this way.”
    I know The Way of Jesus was to love my student’s, their families, everyone involved enough to do my very best at it even though I could get away with less.
    That isn’t in here.
    But there is a way. There is “The Way” of Christ.
    In everything in life their is “The Way of Christ” It is the way of Love.
    John 3:16 CSB
    16 For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
    Our whole initial knowledge of the way of God is built in love and what we do with it in our lives is love.
    1 John 3:16 CSB
    16 This is how we have come to know love: He laid down his life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.
    Matthew 22:37–39 CSB
    37 He said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the greatest and most important command. 39 The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.

    The Way of Christ is Love. Interpreting what that means on my Monday is a relationship with Christ.

    The Way of Christ is Love. Interpreting what that means on my Monday is a relationship with Christ.

    I’ve learned what it means to love Christ at work through reading the Bible and being taught by other followers of Jesus. It meant that I had to do my very best for my student’s even though no one would care if I cut corners.
    God tells us
    Colossians 3:23 The Message
    23 Work from the heart for your real Master, for God,
    Colossians 3:23–24 The Message
    23 Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, 24 confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ.
    Love means
    I busted my butt and was working long days at work and then at home so I could get this done in time. If i am giving Jesus a gift, and he judges my pay by what I do, then I am going to do my very best.

    Love is Working for Christ

    I Finished. We accomplished so much and on Friday I was exhausted.
    My perception was in my exhaustion that I was done. I plopped in my chair to watch tv and begin a night of doing nothing.
    Than Friday at about 5:15, maybe 45 minutes into me sitting in a chair, pastor Harry called me to tell me their was a shooting across the street from the church.
    Today we know how this plays out and some of you may think I know what I am doing and others of you might think I’m an idiot (you’re mean)
    But there is no where in scripture telling you what “The Way” is when you get called about a shooting. There is no exact verse where your sitting next to family when they learn horrific news.
    I can’t see John 52:17, “Jesus said, when entering the emergency room waiting area make sure to say this ...
    But there is Love
    Love is “The Way”

    Love is Sacrifice

    Psalm 34:18 CSB
    18 The Lord is near the brokenhearted; he saves those crushed in spirit.
    If God is near them than I should be near them. Than we should be near them.
    But I was exhausted.
    2 Corinthians 12:9 CSB
    9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.
    Wow church you know this, You stepped up.
    I’m not positive but I think 10 of you showed up on Sunday and Monday nights to help show love to our community and raise money for Eddie’s family.
    But there is a way. There is “The Way” of Christ.
    In everything in life their is “The Way of Christ” It is the way of Love.
    John 3:16 CSB
    16 For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
    Our whole initial knowledge of the way of God is built in love and what we do with it in our lives is love.
    1 John 3:16 CSB
    16 This is how we have come to know love: He laid down his life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.
    Jesus said the two greatest commands:
    Matthew 22:37–39 CSB
    37 He said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the greatest and most important command. 39 The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.
    So I want to get us ready for 2020 our plans must be focused in love
    The Way is based on Love and love can be based on some principles

    My wife is a great mother. She became a soccer coach for many seasons just to keep her daughters getting exercise. She didn’t know much about soccer at all.
    She will make sure they have food first.
    She’s willing to tell them no
    She’s willing to go out of her way, because that is love
    Love as Sacrifice means to expand that to another, everyone really, Jesus said even our enemies
    And since love as sacrifice means laying down your life it means allowing yourself to be in an uncomfortable place because if you were in the same spot you would want someone there with you.
    You did it.

    Love means having courage in Christ.

    Jessica R. and going to visit Maria
    We must be a church that shows up in Crisis even when we barely know what to do.
    We have resources and I called on Jessica R. to help visit with Maria. She knows Spanish she knows Eddie’s brothers. She was ready to go.
    Matthew 18:20 CSB
    20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there among them.”
    Matthew 28:19–20 CSB
    19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
    Philippians 4:13 CSB
    13 I am able to do all things through him who strengthens me.
    Titus 2:14 CSB
    14 He gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for himself a people for his own possession, eager to do good works.
    2 Timothy 3:17 CSB
    17 so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
    2 Timothy 3:16–17 CSB
    16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
    She was Eager but she didn’t know Spanish.
    God worked and we gave comfort and laughed together actually.
    In 2020 though, we have to remember that most of Jesus’ life was not a crisis. It was a Monday, then a Tuesday, Wednesday, all the way to Saturday and started over again.
    To be there for people in a crisis is beautiful but to love everyday is life changing

    Love is a Habit

    Love as a Habit

    Love as a Habit means everyday in the humdrum of life I am going to Christ trying to figure out how I can love God and love my neighbor.
    Most followers of Jesus, in fact many who don’t follow Jesus at all can be close to God in a crisis.
    Most followers of Jesus, in fact many who don’t follow Jesus at all can be close to God in a crisis.
    But Love is built in the hum drum of daily practice.
    It’s annoying to only minister with people that can be counted on in a disaster.
    Our witness in this event was built on those who broke their backs in November putting lights into the ground.
    Most of life should not be a disaster but the hum drum of daily practice.
    Actually it was those who came last January 2019 and helped clean up.
    It was the teenagers and adults who came out for the past 12 years building a witness of who New Day is
    It was Jenn and Justin who showed up every Wednesday, teaching and living alongside Eddie.
    It was
    An event can be a great memory in someone’s life, life changing, but the life of following Christ is a daily, today.
    Hebrews 3:13 The Message
    13 For as long as it’s still God’s Today, keep each other on your toes so sin doesn’t slow down your reflexes.
    Ephesians 4:15 CSB
    15 But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into him who is the head—Christ.
    While a mountain can change with an earthquake. It is made beautiful and productive as it hosts thousands of seeds that slowly grow into a fruit bearing trees, bushes, grases attracting life and bringing beauty. That takes time.

    A church that shows up, calls on each other, encourages each others company and teaches when nothing big is going on, is a church that produces the greatest beauty, the biggest change in your life, in the lives of friends and in the community.

    Small groups/Weekly Worship/Tithing/Bible Study are habits of Love.

    My health can change in an instant with an accident or a heart attack but how I will recover from those will likely be determined by the Habits I have developed

    Love as a Habit is sacrifice, work and courage.

    Love as Habit sacrifices by showing up when you don’t feel like it.

    Love as a habit works at learning when you are not sure when you’ll ever use it

    Love as a habit courageously allows God to bring people into your life and to do life with them even though you never would pick them yourself.

    Hebrews 10:24–25 CSB
    24 And let us watch out for one another to provoke love and good works, 25 not neglecting to gather together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching.
    Hebrews 13:21 CSB
    21 equip you with everything good to do his will, working in us what is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
    Hebrews 10:24 CSB
    24 And let us watch out for one another to provoke love and good works,
