EXCERPT FROM GOSPEL — J.D.GREEAR

THE GREATEST MOMENT IN HUMAN HISTORY


Matthew 28 is so filled with meaning and implications for the Christian life. Preceding the events of this chapter was the crucifixion of Jesus in Matthew 27.

The God-man was hanging dead on a cross. He was then buried in a tomb, and guards were stationed in front to ensure that no one stole His body. Though He said He was going to rise again, His disciples were huddled together, battling fear and uncertainty. But then, after three days Jesus of Nazareth got up and walked out of that tomb. The resurrection changed everything. This is why Paul said of the resurrection, “If we have put our hope in Christ for this life only, we should be pitied more than anyone” (1 Cor. 15:19). The entire hope of the Christian life springs from the fact that the death of Christ for our sins was validated by His resurrection. The gospel tells us that sin and death were defeated once and for all when Christ walked out of the tomb. This changed everything. Christians now have hope because death is defeated. We have no fear in this world. We’ll suffer, but we can suffer with hope. We’ll face loss and grief, but we won’t grieve as people who have no hope. These realities compelled Paul to say that he had “learned the secret of being content— whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in

need” (Phil. 4:12). The resurrection gives us a peace-filled confidence for whatever we encounter in this life. Matthew didn’t end with the resurrection. Chapter 28 ends with the famously titled Great Commission in verses 19-20. In this text Jesus compelled the disciples to make disciples as they were going through life. Notice that the imperative is “make disciples,” not “go.” Often this text is preached with an emphasis on missions. However, this isn’t just a missions text; it’s also a discipleship text. Are we living as disciples of Jesus? Is the gospel creating in us visible signs that we’re His followers, not just fans? This passage tells us that part of such a life involves making other disciples. This is where the author leaves us—with Christ declaring His authority over the earth and giving the disciples the mission to make more disciples. Discipleship and missions go hand in hand.

WAYS TO OVERCOME A DEFEATED PAST

WE MAKE MISTAKES AND SUFFER CONSEQUENCES, BUT WE CAN PRACTICALLY MOVE BEYOND THE SHADOW OF OUR DEFEATED PAST THROUGH GOD’S GRACE.

1

Stop watering dead plants Where do you give time, attention, and energy but are really watering a dead plant? A relationship that is not fruitful? A mistake that’s gnawing at you? Just as, in Psalm 51, King David stopped watering his dead plants of guilt and failure through confession and repentance, we can, too.

2

Start asking God for a new wineskin Focus all of your energies on building the new, not fighting the old. Transformation requires our willingness to replace the “old wineskins” of our ways of thinking and living. Ask the Lord to give you a new heart and the ability to sense what He is doing.

3

Do the next thing God tells you to do To overcome and see God’s new work, do the next thing God tells you to do. One day and decision at a time, He asks us to obey Him. Do it humbly. He will change you and use you for His purpose and pleasure.

MAN UP IT’S THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO FOR OTHERS—AND YOURSELF. What kind of man are you right now? Are you a man who embraces all God created you to be? Who follows God without limits? Who meets the needs of those around you without hesitation? Because that’s the kind of man society and the church so desperately need you to be. Join pastor James MacDonald over six sessions to undergo what he calls “radical surgery”—a deep exploration and reparation of what it means to be a man. Walk through the five pillars of 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 to encourage and challenge you in becoming a stronger man of God. Because He not only expects you to act like a man, He wants you to lean on Him to do it.

Besides walking—or being walked by—her little dog, Lucy, Jennifer enjoys riding a bicycle built for two with her husband. She is also an avid listener of audiobooks, a C.S. Lewis junkie, and loves dark chocolate and robust coffee—especially when shared with a friend.

BIBLE STUDY INSIDER INFO • The team decided to call Jennifer a Disney Princess because all the animals at the farm loved her, her voice, and her gentleness! • The publishing team had to battle a surprise snowstorm to make it to Springfield, MO the day before the taping. • Jennifer originally planned to write a study on the Book of Haggai but lost her first efforts in a computer glitch. She decided to move forward with a study on Psalm 23 after she’d begun studying it for herself.

EXCERPT FROM JOB — LISA HARPER

ACCESSIBLE IN THE ACHE For me, the most difficult concept in Job 2, if not the entire book, is the fact that God allows Satan to further afflict Job. Good night, the poor fellow has already presided over the funerals of all ten of his children and most of his team of employees, plus he’s faced foreclosure on his estate. It’s almost impossible to imagine the depth of his grief in light of those huge, horrific losses. Now that pain is compounded by adding terribly painful, infected, head-totoe, open sores to his inventory of agony.


God’s sovereignty over absolutely everything in the world, including allowing the devil to devastate Job beyond what seems humanly bearable, begs the age-old question: If God is truly good, why does He allow such bad things to happen to us? I mean, how in the world could a compassionate Creator hand one of His beloved created beings over to that wicked dragon—the very same snake the apostle John said comes only to steal from us, kill us, and destroy us (John 10:10)? I don’t begin to have the wisdom to conclusively answer the question of why God allows suffering. However, over the years, I have constructed an internal theological framework by which to consider God’s allowance of suffering so that I don’t lose my hope in the ditch of despair, sully my soul in the mud of moralism, trade my peace for the anguish of over-analysis, or harden my heart in the cement of cynicism. Here’s the deal: Despite how incredibly harsh pain appears from our perspectives, God only gives Satan enough rope to hang himself. It’s never enough to drag us away from God’s presence. At the end of my freshman year in high school, my stepfather gave me a choice; he said if I chose to stay at Lake Brantley High School, I would no longer be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities such as student government, social clubs, or sports. He was the principal at the middle school next door, and he wanted me to ride home with him as soon as he got off work. He was not willing to wait around for me to be finished with track practice or a Fellowship of Christian Athletes meeting. And he flatly refused to drive twenty-five

miles round trip after hours to pick me up from anything sports- or social-related. However, he bargained, if I agreed to transfer to Seminole High School, the secondary school in our town, I could participate in whatever clubs or sports I wanted to because it was close enough for me to ride my bike to and from activities. Mom tried to change his mind after we met with a much less-than-hospitable staff member at Seminole, whose grammar was even more atrocious than his lack of civility. She became concerned about the school’s lackluster academic standards, not to mention the rampant drug use, racial tension, and campus violence that was often reported in the local news. Despite the fact that mom graduated from Seminole High School and had met my stepfather, Dad Angel, there thirty years earlier, her concern for my safety and college preparation trumped any nostalgic thoughts of me attending her alma mater. But Dad Angel wouldn’t budge. So in August of 1978, I left all my friends and a sparkling clean, recently built school with a bevy of amenities to attend a very old school with a constant police presence. The first few days were definitely dicey. I was chased more than once by a gang leader who wanted to rough me up to bolster his reputation as the number one bully. A girl hurled an expletive at me and threatened to beat me up because her boyfriend gave me directions to the driver’s ed class. And my preppy clothes made me a laughingstock at the lockers between classes. But soon enough, I befriended the bully after his sister told him that she and I were friends in elementary school. I learned to avoid boys who were

One evening was led by a special guest vocalist—Lisa’s daughter Missy. • The stories of unlikely joy from special guests created more than two hours of additional content that can be used with your group in a variety of ways.

attached to mean, possessive girls who were prone to wearing tube tops in public. And I exchanged khakis and top-siders for Levi’s® and flip-flops. More importantly, I learned to love people who didn’t look like me or live in my neighborhood. I learned that skin color, zip codes, and test scores were petty details and absolutely useless qualifiers for real relationships. I learned to make do with hand-me-down uniforms, generously cracked tennis courts, sagging nets, and a gym without air-conditioning in the intense heat and sticky humidity of Central Florida. I learned how to ask better questions in class and check out more books from the library. I learned how to engage through dialogue instead of distancing through diatribe. I learned how to gladly share microscopes and dissecting equipment in an antiquated laboratory under the guidance of an awesome anatomy teacher. I learned how to be a team player and cheer even louder from the bench than I did on the court. Seminole High School is where I learned that entitlement is the archenemy of creativity, passion, and joy. It’s where I learned that building something by the sweat of your brow is a lot more rewarding than having it handed to you. It’s where I learned to lead Bible studies with my best friend Cindy. It’s where we first studied the theme of adoption in the Bible. It’s where we made a solemn promise after a Fellowship of Christian Athletes meeting that we’d adopt hard-to-place kids when we grew up—which means it’s also where I unwittingly began the journey of becoming Missy’s mama, thirty years before her first mama died from AIDS in a small village in Haiti.

The greatest theological minds in the history of Christendom haven’t been able to conclusively answer the question of why our Redeemer allows suffering to happen, so you’d better bet I can’t. But I do have enough life experience to believe that if we trust that our God is good and He does good—even when life is really bad—hardship won’t make us bitter; it will actually make us better. It won’t break us; it will make us. Of course, changing high schools can only be defined as a “hardship” in the narcissistic milieu of adolescence. It would barely register as a blip on the radar of real pain. But the truism of God’s absolute goodness has followed me all of my days, including times of much greater grief—my parents’ acrimonious divorce, sexual abuse as a child, rape in college, multiple abusive and toxic relationships as a young adult, losing both of my fathers, a heartbreaking failed adoption at the eleventh hour, and many other seasons of suffering. Now that I’m in my fifties, it’s safe to say I’ve lived more life than I have life left to live. And when I look back over my entire story thus far, I can honestly tell you I have never seen God’s back. Mind you, there are still lots of things I don’t understand, and there have been losses I almost couldn’t bear. But through it all, I have never experienced His absence. I don’t know why God allows His children to suffer, but I do know that He always makes Himself accessible to us when we ache.
