Superheroes of Faith

I’ve been preparing for VBS all week for a church in Georgia, and the theme is “Superheroes of Faith.” Just last month, the movie Avengers Endgame came out and shattered box office records. After watching the film three times in just four days and spending an entire week planning for VBS, I’ve got superheroes on my mind. This got me thinking about different heroes in the Bible, specifically superheroes of faith.

The first person that comes to mind when thinking about faith is Abraham. Many of us have read through Hebrews 11, which is known as the "Hall of Faith,” where Abraham’s faith is discussed. Hebrews 11:8-9 tells us about the faith he encompassed while moving to a foreign land. Abraham took his entire family, cattle, servants, herdsmen, and everything, and got up and moved to a different place just because God told him to. He had no idea why he was leaving, and he had no idea where he was going, all he knew was that God told him he was to go, so he went. I love how the Hebrews writer describes Abraham’s situation in verse 8: “And he went out, not knowing where he was going.” This reminds me of Thomas’ interaction with Jesus in John 14:1-6. Jesus is trying to comfort his apostles. He tells them He will soon be leaving them, and in verse 4, he tells them, "And you know the way to where I am going." Thomas, speaking on behalf of all the apostles, replies with, "Lord, we do not know where you are going, how can we know the way?" And then the famous reply of Jesus in verse 6 is, "I am the Way and the Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father except through Me." Here Thomas is given his answer, and that answer is Jesus Christ himself. Abraham received the same solution in his quest in Genesis. When you are lost and don't know the way, God is the answer, and He will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:6). That is how Abraham became a superhero of faith, and the Bible acknowledges that in verse 10 of Hebrews 11: “For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God.” Abraham knew that no matter what the situation, God would deliver him. Trusting Him was his only choice.

This faith is further seen skipping down to verse 19 in the Hall of Faith. The verse here offers insight into why Abraham was willing to offer his only son through Sarah as a sacrifice. Many believe that Abraham just thought that God would stop the sacrifice before Isaac was killed (making it easier to go through with it), but the Hebrews writer says Abraham’s faith went even farther than that. Verse 19 says, “He considered that God was able even to raise him from the dead, from which, figuratively speaking, he did receive him back.” Abraham believed in God so much that he considered he could even bring Isaac back from the dead. I think this verse is extremely under-looked at in the scriptures. No one had ever been raised from the dead before. This was before Lazarus' and Jesus' time, but Abraham knew that God was even able to do the impossible. He knew God was able to do something that had never been done before. He went up that mountain walking with his son along the way, knowing he was going to sacrifice him because no matter what, in the end, God would deliver. Even if it took raising Isaac from the dead, God would provide for Abraham as long as he had faith in Him.

Another superhero of faith in the Bible is Jabez, a man that is only talked about in two verses out of the entire Bible. 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 says this: “Jabez was more honorable than his brothers; and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, ‘Because I bore him in pain.’ Jabez called upon the God of Israel, saying, ‘Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from harm so that it might not bring me pain!’ And God granted what he asked.” The entire first nine chapters of 1 Chronicles are lists of genealogies, and these two verses are the only ones to take the time to individually point out something good someone does. That is 407 verses total, and these two are the only ones. So we have to ask ourselves, why does the Bible do this? What was so special about Jabez? I think the answer to this is his faith. Jabez had a terrible beginning to his life, and his name reflects this. The name Jabez sounds like the Hebrew word for pain. Often times in the Bible, your name determined who you are. People would be named by their parents and would live up to their name, as was the case with Esau, David, and Abram. Jabez instead chose to shift his focus to God. Jabez was described as being more honorable than his brothers and then asked for God's blessings, which were granted to him. No doubt this can be accredited to his faith, his honor, and his refusal to let himself be dragged down by a bad beginning.

There are many other superheroes of faith in the Bible. However, our goal is not to sit back and admire these superheroes like we do while watching the Avengers. Our goal instead is to become one of these superheroes ourselves. There is no superpower they have that we cannot obtain; they just have a deep and everlasting faith for God, a faith that we too can have. Ephesians 2:8 says, “By grace you have been saved through FAITH. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.” I urge you today to become your own superhero of faith.

Treasure of Life

I’m sure at least once in your life you’ve heard the phrase “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” When I was younger I used to watch shows like American Pickers and Pawn Stars on the History Channel. American Pickers is a show where two men drive around the country to people who have a massive collection of stuff and buy things that they think they can make some money off of. Many times they would buy old gas station signs, vintage bicycles, lamps; anything they thought they could clean up and sell for a profit. As was the case with most of the houses they went to, I would see a barn full of random things and just think it was a pile full of trash, but sure enough Mike and Frank would spend a good amount of money to purchase some of these things, and at the end of the show it would show how much profit they earned. Pawn Stars was very similar to this. People would bring in what they considered to be treasure and see how much money they could squeeze out of the workers. Sometimes they found out that their “treasure” wasn’t really treasure after all and they wouldn’t get nearly as much money as they were hoping for. Other times people struck gold and walked out of the store with far more than they could ever imagine. I would watch Pawn Stars with a lot of the stuff people brought in and just think why in the world would anyone want to buy this and then before you know it, they would walk out with a couple hundred dollars. Someone could walk in with an old burnt spatula they found out was used by Teddy Roosevelt and leave $4,000 richer than they entered. To me, a lot of this stuff is nothing but junk, but to many others as it turns out, these things were their treasure. I’m not sure why either of these shows were on the History Channel because I wasn’t learning much about history by watching them, but if anything it taught me the true meaning of this famous saying.

            We see this phrase play out in our lives a countless number of times, many of which go unnoticed. For example, it is very common when you live in Ohio to complain about the weather. Despite the fact that it seems like it never gets warm, Ohio weather is just so unbelievably predictable. You can go to bed with it dry outside, wake up to four inches of snow, and then by the end of the day it be 60 degrees and sunny and all of the snow is melted. I wish I could say this is an exaggeration but it is not. Another big weather complaint is about the rain. Whenever a decent period of time passes with consistent rain, people start mumbling under their breath and griping that the sun never comes out. To them, this weather is junk, but to many people in this world, they need the rain to survive. There are people in rural areas of America that make their money off of rain. If it doesn’t rain, they don’t grow crops, and if they don’t grow crops, they don’t make any money. To them, rain is a treasure that they cherish every time they get the opportunity. It’s all about your perspective and how you choose to view things. We also more commonly do this with material things. The iPhone 7 comes out, then the iPhone 8, then the iPhone 10, next thing you know you can’t stand the iPhone 6 that you own. Even though there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it, you start to convince yourself that it’s old, slow, and outdated. What you once viewed as precious is now junk. But once again, to many people in this world, having an iPhone 6 would be something they could not even fathom receiving. They’re so concerned with putting food on the table night in and night out that they can’t even think about having an iPhone. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.

            We also see many examples of this in the Bible. The first thing that pops into my mind is the story of the widow’s offering in Mark 12:41-44. Here we are told of rich people coming in and placing very large sums in the offering box, and then a widow comes in and places two small copper coins. I can’t imagine the look those rich people gave her. They just put in loads of coins and then this woman comes and just thinks she can place two coins in the pot and be fine. Then Jesus steps up and praises her for what she’s done, for this offering was all that she had to live on. The two small coins she offered make up a kodrantes, which was a Roman coin worth about 1/64 of a day’s wage for a laborer. 1/64 of a DAY’S wage, and that is all that she had to live on. The rich people passing by probably scoffed at her, looked at her weird, maybe even laughed at the widow, but what was junk to them was everything to the widow, and she was willing to give it up to give back to God.    

            Despite all of these things that I have listed, nothing represents the meaning of the popular saying better than the life of Jesus Christ. Thought of as trash to the Romans, Jesus was constantly tested and sought out to be arrested and killed. When it was finally His time to go, He was mocked, tortured, spit on, hung up on a cross for all who were around to witness. To the people who committed this unthinkable act, Jesus was nothing more than junk. But to us, He is the absolute definition of treasure. He died on the cross so that our sins could be forgiven, and it is through His amazing grace that we will have the opportunity to spend eternity with Him someday, as long as we do what He has commanded us. Because Jesus is our treasure, we should be willing to give nothing short of what the widow gave to Him: everything we have. If we do this, we can spend eternity with this very treasure, and bask in His glory. Isaiah 40:31: “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

Spiritual Breaks

Quite possibly the most interesting page of the Bible is the one that has nothing written on it. The page in between the end of Malachi and the beginning of Matthew; separating the Old Testament from the New. Many times we pass this page and pick up in Matthew as if nothing has changed and no time has gone by, when this is certainly not the case. As we turn this page and move onto the four gospels, about 400 years has gone by. 400 years of prophetic “silence” where nothing is said or written down pertaining to God’s Word. One of the greatest mysteries of the Bible is what happened over these four centuries. Why is nothing written about during these times? Certainly there were those who followed God, who still spoke of the things which were prophesied as well as the Law of God. But if so, why is it not written about? The important thing to note here is that what happened during those 400 years is unimportant to us. There is no significance to what happened in that time that we need to know about or else God would have included it in His inspired Word. What is important, however, is what this long period of silence led to. In other words, how did the people react to such a long time of no additional prophecies? What did this “Spiritual Break” in a sense, cause the people of that time to do, and why should we never go on spiritual breaks? Let’s study it together.

            The best way to examine the effects that this long period of silence had on the people is to pick up in Matthew, where it details the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We see a countless number of passages in the Old Testament prophecy of Jesus being born and being the Savior here on earth (Isaiah 11, Jeremiah 23, 2 Samuel 7). We know that the people were told a number of different times that Jesus would be coming to this earth and would suffer a cruel death for our sins so how did the people not know it was Him when He actually came? Jesus spoke of Himself, of how He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). He talked about how He was the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 5:17). He taught how those who suffer on His account would be blessed with eternal life (Matthew 5:11-12). He spoke of His father sending Him down to the earth to do His will (John 6:38). He performed many miracles to prove He was the true Son of God (John 2:1-11, Luke 5:1-11, Mark 1:23-28, Matthew 14:15-21). So how is it possible that all of these people did not believe that He was who He said He was? How did the Pharisees, people who spent their whole lives studying the Law, not know that God’s Son was coming on the earth to fulfill that very Law? The fact of the matter is, spiritual breaks cause disbelief. These people had 400 years of nothing new being prophesied, and now out of nowhere a man comes saying He is the fulfillment to those prophecies. They had so long without anyone holding them accountable for their actions that they began abandoning the teachings of their ancestors. Many of us would do the same thing. If our parents were to tell us that they would get us a dog, and then 20 years passed and we still did not have a dog, there would be some major disbelief. We would be absolutely shocked if we came home one day 20 years later, and they had actually gotten a dog. Now multiply that time span by 20, and that is how long these people had pass before Jesus’ birth. They had gone so long without hearing from God that they crucified the very person they’d been waiting on for centuries.

            Spiritual breaks also cause spiritual confusion. We read in the New Testament of Saul persecuting Christians and ravaging the Church (Acts 8:1-3). Saul was persecuting Christians left and right, thinking he was working for the Lord. Saul had killed hundreds, possibly thousands of Christians because he had become spiritually confused and persuaded by false teachings. When Jesus appears to Saul in Acts 9, Saul immediately changes his life to instead walk the true path of the Lord, according to His word. He writes letters to many of the churches, and teaches to be aware of these same false teachers that led him astray (2 Timothy 4:3-4). Saul, who later became Paul, sought to live a life for Christ, and after realizing he had been doing it all wrong changed for the better. There is no telling why Paul originally thought it was best to persecute all of those Christians, but I think we can attribute a lot of it to the long period of silence of the Scriptures. People were no longer being told directly by God how they should live, so they decided to go off and live however they thought was best. They became spiritually confused.

            I am writing all this about breaks because all of us at Ohio State are on our Spring Break. I’m currently sitting outside on my porch in Georgia in the beautiful 70 degree weather basking in the sun. Also, I just had to buy new brakes for my car, so I have breaks of all kinds on my mind. The problem with many people today is they feel it is okay to take these spiritual breaks in our lives, when in fact it is not. College students have Spring Break and we no longer have our college minister and Christian peers holding us accountable so we decide to take time off spiritually. We feel there can’t be any harm in just taking a day off from thinking about God, until that day becomes two days, then a week, then a month, then before you know it you forget the very God who gave you life. Purchasing brakes and having them installed can be quite expensive, but taking breaks from our God can cost us our entire lives. Spiritual breaks cause disbelief, spiritual breaks cause confusion, so don’t give Satan the opportunity to plant that seed of doubt in your mind. Worship God today, worship God tomorrow, and worship God every day until we can worship Him for eternity in Heaven with Him.

Magnificat

There are very few feelings greater than the realization that you are going to have a child. I can’t say I’m writing this from experience, but I can imagine that the joy of knowing you are going to bring your very own baby into the world is above most other things. Just the thought of getting the opportunity to have a child and realize you are about to bring someone into the world in your own likeness who you can love and take care of and raise up in the Lord amazes me. Now think about how much more this would be the case if you found out you’d be having the Son of God. To realize that you get to raise up God in human form, the very Man that was sent to save millions from spending eternity in suffering. This became reality for Mary when the angel Gabriel came to her and told her she would be getting the opportunity to bring Jesus into the world. As you could imagine, once Mary wrapped her head around what was going on she was beyond excited and grateful. To praise God for doing this through her, she sang a song to him in Luke 1:46-55 known as the Magnificat. Every Tuesday for Buckeyes for Christ after our dinner and high-lows we sing three or four songs. At the very front of our song book is this song of Mary: the Magnificat. Almost every single week someone requests that we sing this song because it sounds absolutely beautiful. What is even more beautiful, however, are the words that make up the song and the meaning behind them, so please take a moment with me to study the things Mary has sung to our God.

            To start it off, the sopranos come in and sing, “My soul magnifies the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, my soul magnifies the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God.” What an amazing image to think of here, Mary being so happy that her spirit is rejoicing, her soul magnifying the Lord. I’m sure we’ve all had those days where we feel similar to Mary right here. One of those spiritually rewarding days where we’ve been surrounded by our brothers and sisters in Christ all day. Maybe it was on a retreat, or a mission trip, or after we witnessed those we love give their lives to Christ. Just one of those days that seemed like nothing could go wrong, and nothing did. A day in which we lay down in bed at night and our entire being is rejoicing in God, just as Mary was on that day. The important thing to take away from this is where she directed her happiness. She didn’t think ahead to her life with Jesus and think about how great of a mother she was going to be. She didn’t think back to her past and puff herself up about how great a life she must’ve lived to where God would choose her to have His child. Instead she thanks God for giving her this opportunity; her entire being was showing her gratefulness for the Lord.

            In the next verse, the bass joins in singing, “Glory be to God the Father, Glory be to God the Son, Glory be to God the Spirit, Glory be to God.” I love what is done here. Each part of the trinity is listed and given glory to. Glory be to God the Father. Joshua 1:9 says, “Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” There is no need to fear anything in this life because we know God the Father is with us and more powerful than all; give glory to Him. Glory be to God the Son. “For Christ also suffered once for our sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit,” (1Peter 3:18). Jesus suffered immense pain on the cross to die for our sins, people who do not deserve it; give glory to Him. Glory be to God the Spirit. “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groaning too deep for words,” (Romans 8:26). The Spirit knows our struggles, He knows our weaknesses, and He promises to intercede for us on our behalf; give glory to Him. And then the entire Trinity is listed as one. Glory be to God. “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all,” (2 Corinthians 13:14). The Trinity works together to form a perfect and complete bond, one that can give us life; give glory to Him.

            The altos come in for the third verse and sing, “He has been mindful of His servant, He has been mindful of me. I will be blessed forever, forever. I will be blessed by the Lord.” God has promised us that He will always be with us. Deuteronomy 31:8 says, “It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” God was mindful of Mary and her situation, and blessed her with the birth of His Son. We still receive the outcome of that blessing today, a blessing to us which is the grace and mercy of Christ. That blessing will last forever, so God will never forsake you.

            The final verse has the tenors joining in and singing, “God alone is mighty, mighty. God alone has done great things. God alone is worthy, worthy. Holy is His name.” Genesis 1:1 tells us God created the entire universe. Exodus shows God taking His people out of slavery, parting a sea for them to cross, putting up with their complaints in the wilderness, leading them to defeat nation after nation, and giving them the land He promised to their ancestors. John 3:16 tells of God sending His only unique Son to die on the cross for our sins, because His love for us is that great. God alone has done great things. Is your soul magnifying the Lord and rejoicing in God as it should? Are you giving glory to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit? Are you recognizing the blessings the Lord has placed in your life, as he stays mindful of you? If you’re not then you need to start as soon as possible, as God alone is worthy of these things. Holy is His name.

There's a First Time for Everything

I’m sure many of us have heard of the phrase “there’s a first time for everything” at least once in our lives. Simply put, it just means that for everything we do, there had to have been or will at some point be a first time for doing that certain thing. In fact, there had to have been a point in your life in which you heard this phrase for the first time.  One thing that I’ve learned throughout my experiences is that the first time you do something is almost always the best, most memorable time. Whether it is a trip that you frequent, a view, your first year at college, or maybe your first time performing in front of a large crowd, those “firsts” are moments you will always cherish.

            I will never forget the first time I ever started for my varsity basketball team. I was a bench player, averaged about 3 minutes a game, and only came in if we were winning by a lot or losing by a lot. For the first 19 games of the season, I scored five total points in all the games combined. In the 20th game, we were down by about 30-40 points and I got called off the bench to come in the game with about two and a half minutes remaining. In those last two minutes and 30 seconds I scored 11 points. I made three 3’s and another jumper to become the leading scorer in the game. I couldn’t believe it, no one else could either. After scoring just five lousy points all season, I came in and dropped 11 points in just a little over two minutes. Three days later, we were having our shootaround the morning of the next gameday and my coach informed me that I was going to be starting that night. I was shocked, nervous, and had no idea why I was getting this opportunity. I played nearly 25 minutes that game, and will never forget how tired I was throughout the game just because I was not used to being on the court for nearly that long. I scored 7 points that game, started for the last six games of the season, and averaged nearly 10 points a game. I went on to become varsity captain my senior year, but no matter how much I played or scored in my last season, those games never topped the thrill or excitement of getting my first ever start.

            I have been blessed enough with the opportunity to go to Scotland on four different occasions for mission trips. Each time that we went, some of the sightseeing we did was the same every year. One of the places we visited every year was called Kinnoul Hill, and I remember the first time I ever got up to the edge of the cliff and looked out over the land, I was in complete awe. I was blown away at how amazing the view was. Every year after that when we went back, even though the sight was still beautiful, it just did not have the same impact on me that the first time did. Similarly, last summer I went to Yellowstone for a few weeks, and saw the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life and I remember thinking to myself, I just don’t understand how anybody could get used to these. But, much like what happened in Scotland, the people who live near Yellowstone probably do not view the wonders in the same way I did. The views get old. This seems to happen almost every time we have a “first” in our lives. No matter how amazing the event is, it just will never top that first experience. Eventually, you start to get used to it, it becomes old news.

            There is one thing in my life however, that will never get old. One thing I can read over and over and over and still be amazed at what took place, still be in awe of the magnificence that was witnessed. That thing is the death and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Take a moment and read through the 19th chapter of John. We read of a crown of thorns that is twisted and forcefully placed on Jesus’ head. We read of soldiers mocking Him and spitting on Him. In verse 26 we read of His mother, standing by and watching all of this take place, and Jesus looks at her and says, “Woman, behold, your son!” And I read all this and think why? Why would Jesus go through all this pain for me? And the answer to that is love. A love that we can never fathom. A love in which God was willing to sacrifice His only son on the cross, so that our sins may be forgiven (John 3:16). A love so strong that even though we are sinners, Christ died for us on that day (Romans 5:8). And then, just three days later, we see Him rise from the dead. He conquered death by coming out of the tomb and fulfilled the prophesy that had been spoken of Him for generations. Then Jesus appeared to His disciples, instructed them to tell all of what happened, and later ascended into Heaven. To think that He did all this for us, people who do not nearly deserve it, is so crazy but logical all at the same time. To think that there is someone out there who loves us so much that He is willing to go through all that pain and agony to give us a chance to be with Him in Heaven one day always humbles me. That is why I ask you to take a moment today to remember that our God sacrificed His son for you. Thank Him for all that He’s done. Jesus will never be old news, so spread His good news to all that you come into contact with.

God Will Provide Rest

I was recently asked what my favorite verse in the Bible is. Usually when asked this question, I just say the first thing that pops into my head, something I have memorized like John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8, or Romans 5:8. While these are all amazing verses showing the love and grace of our God, I can’t say I’ve really sat down and decided any of them are officially my favorite verse in the Bible. This past week when I was told to pick a verse, I decided to ponder the question for a while and make a choice that was true to me. Again many verses danced through my head, ones I’ve known since I was a small child. I thought about the well-known stories in the Bible: of Abraham, Moses, David, Peter, and things they said during struggles in their lives. No matter how much I thought about these things, my mind kept coming back to the same verse, a verse I have turned to a countless number of times seeking comfort in God. Matthew 11:28- “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

             Wow. Jesus, THE Son of God, the Christ himself, God in human form, promising us an area of peace amongst all the busyness in our lives. As a college student, I relate to this 100%. I have been told by all my peers that I have an easy schedule. My family jokes around about whether I’m even really in school or not. For the rest of my college career, I will not have to take any more than 13.5 credit hours in a given semester. While I am the president of a club and that takes a ton of time and work, my busyness does not even compare to some of my friends’. And yet, I still often times find myself physically exhausted at nights from the work I do during the day. I still get overwhelmed at times from all the assignments and due dates looming over my head. I really don’t understand how some of my friends make it with the schedules they take on. What I do know, is that Jesus has promised to give you rest. Whether you have 12 credit hours or 21, whether you have a job or not, whether your schedule is full every day of the week or you can’t find anything to do, Jesus has promised to take on your burdens if you come to Him.

            Let’s take a moment and look at David, one of the most well-known people in the Bible. David was just a small shepherd boy that had to take on the greatest warrior the Philistines could find. He was then a soon-to-be king that faced numerous threats to be killed by the current king. He was then a king himself and fell into sexual temptation leading to the death of his son. So how did David handle all of the strife in his life? How did he overcome the many evils he faced and still climb up the ladder of spiritual success? The answer is in Psalm 40:1-4a- “I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord. Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust.” This is our answer. David did the one thing that so many others fail to do in their lives: he put his trust in God. No matter how tough the situation, David knew that if he put his trust in God, and waited on Him patiently, then everything would be alright. And we can know that things did in fact turn around for David from what he told us next. He writes that God lifted him out of the pit of destruction, made his steps secure, and put a song of praise in his mouth. The Bible goes on to describe David as a man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22). David found the key to fixing his problems was going to God, and because of that, he found rest.

            So what are you waiting on? Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed by the fullness of your schedule in the upcoming weeks. Maybe you’ve been struggling with a sin for a while now and need guidance in how to change for the better. Maybe you’ve had a hardship pop into your life and you don’t know how you’re going to get by day after day. Whatever it is in your life, whether good or bad, you can know that God will always be there to listen. “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
