How Do I Do Justice?

How Do I Do Justice?

Do you see how by doing what's right for someone else, your life gets richer and more interesting? In a puzzle of a thousand tiny pieces, a picture starts to form. This is our job. On earth, as it is in heaven. 

Of course it's no sacrifice for me to have Shelby over, I love it when she's here, but some things I do are sacrifices, but even then I win. As I build this muscle, inclining my behavior toward justice for people who need it, I am satisfied. This is the system God built and it's incredible.

Consider for a moment, how your life would look if you showed up everywhere with a deep awareness of your royal identity

  • What deals would you reject?
  • What words would come from your mouth?
  • What words wouldn't?
  • What would you believe was possible for you and your family?
  • How would you use your incredible leverage to change the world?

I Need Direction But God Is Quiet

I Need Direction But God Is Quiet

I think Jesus wanted to expose the central issue behind our fear: We don't know God's love for us. If we think God will be disappointed if we rush out ahead and fall down, we're unlikely to move very much. 

But if He's your good father, won't he scamper up behind you, giggle a little at your daring, pick you up and brush you off? Then place your feet somewhere more suited to your skill level?

Doesn't it feel better to believe that about him?

Intermissionary Lessons Part II - Leaving Summer Camp

It's not unusual to feel like a better, freer version of yourself here; skipping down the street with a local friend, who has invited you to eat with her family, hopping over puddles because you have two more miles to walk and you don't want to get your shoes wet. 

There is easy togetherness that occurs in cultures that place high value on human relationships. We respond to that because humans were designed to be together, but in the US, it's like we've found ways to make that as inorganic and difficult as possible. 

No wonder people fear going "home"

Intermissionary Lessons Part One - Love & The Invasive Question

It takes discipline to believe you are complete, loved, clean and royal. It's a choice that will make you look weird because the world doesn't think like that, and it will shame you for attempting to live like you do.

But do it anyway, and watch your life change.

That's why I don't care anymore if people think I say weird things in conversation. It's fine. I do. If you are a follower of Jesus and you tell me you are racked with guilt, I'm going to ask some questions about that.

Neglecting this stuff, which many global workers do in an effort to "get back to normal," is worse than just a waste, it can become a problem. Most global workers know they could use some supported time out, but the truth is, they often can't afford it. 

That's why we started the Intermissionary Scholarship Fund. 

Super Tom - The Example

Super Tom - The Example

I’ve heard the words “Tom what’s your location?” spoken over his radio a dozen times by a dozen people in a thirty-minute span, yet somehow Tom always had time to stop and shake a man’s hand and to look him in the eye. How is that possible?

It's possible because Tom was a full-time construction worker in the Kingdom of God, building stuff that makes earth look more like heaven.
