The Weekend Sun

Success is to run your race We have a desire to be successful. Often, we see this in terms of what material possessions we have, for example our bank balance, or status and fame. As life goes on, our understanding of success tends to evolve. At the age of two, not wetting your bed is success. It’s the same at 92 – but not so much at 22. In my teenage years, life was about attaining all the “success stuff ”. As we get older, we begin to realise that “success stuff ” can be pretty hollow. As we grow in our understanding of what it means to walk the way of Jesus, we discover that following him rarely leads to the kind of success that is glorified in our Western materialistic context. Rather, success is about running the ‘race’ that God has set before each of us. This isn’t a race where we’re in competition with others but rather where we run alongside others. Each runs participating in God’s redemptive mission in the world in their own unique way. The book of Hebrews offers examples of what we call “heroes in the faith” – men and women who didn’t give up but continually pushed forward in life, running their race. This list of heroes is a mixed bag though. This side of eternity, these legends of the faith experienced varied out-

comes in regard to the way the world might measure success. Abraham and David ended up wealthy and highly regarded. But others were tortured, flogged, sawn in two, were financially destitute, persecuted and mistreated. Sometimes, God’s idea of success comes with the kind of accolades our world admires. But sometimes it simply doesn’t. Sometimes, God’s idea of success comes with all the stuff that our comfort-seeking world would deem as failure. Ultimately, God is working in history to bring about the reconciliation and restoration of all things. We’re invited, as followers of Christ, to partner with the Holy Spirit, and creatively engage in purposeful living – living in big and small ways that bring wholeness on earth. Some people will have an acute and focussed sense of what this means for them. For others, living in response to that calling is like being in a wide open space with all sorts of possibilities. Success is to engage in God’s mission and to run the race set before you. Success is to partner with God, in God’s wider mission, living a life that, over time, becomes a collaborative masterpiece co-painted with God. Our materialistic world may not deem this a valuable piece of art but ultimately you running your race is priceless. What kind of success are you pursuing in life? By Joseph McAuley

Keeping on being filled with the Holy Spirit Pastor and author Charles Swindoll made this statement: "I don’t know of a more important verse in the New Testament for the Christian than Ephesians 5:18 – honest, no exaggeration. This verse tells the believer how to live an authentic, empowered life: ‘And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit’”. In speaking about being ‘filled with the Spirit’, Swindoll says: “this is a command, not a suggestion. It’s an urgent imperative, not a casual option. It is a command, which I must play a part in. For example, I cannot be filled with the Spirit while I have un-confessed sin within me. I cannot be filled with the Spirit while at the same time conducting my life in the energy of the flesh. I cannot be filled with the Spirit while I am resisting God’s will and relying only on myself. I need to walk in conscious dependence on the Lord on a daily basis”. John MacArthur echoes the importance of this doctrine writing that: “If we do not obey this command, we cannot obey any other – simply because we cannot do any of God’s will apart from God’s Spirit. Outside of the command for unbe-

lievers to trust in Christ for salvation, there is no more practical and necessary command in Scripture than the one for believers to be filled with the Spirit”. There can be a tendency in Christian life to avoid emphasising the presence and the ministry of the Holy Spirit, even though He is the third Person of the Trinity, equally God with the Father and the Son. Yet, Jesus makes it clear in John 14:6, 14:26 and 16:7 that God the Father sent the Holy Spirit to walk with us, to empower us and to stand with us in daily life, now that God has seated Jesus at His right hand in heaven. We need the Holy Spirit and His presence and His power in a desperate way. We shouldn't fear the Holy Spirit – instead we should welcome Him and we should create an atmosphere where He is free to work unhindered in Christ's Church and in our lives. The literal translation of “be filled” is “keep on being filled” or “be being kept filled” which was the experience of the disciples, in Acts 13:52, who were “continually filled with joy and the Holy Spirit”. May that be our expectation and our experience today. By Peter Whitcombe, Jesus First Church

situations vacant

Hi! I’m the manager of the Go Bus fleet maintenance team. Good diesel mechanics are hard to come by and maintaining a bus fleet is a very responsible role. So as a company, we know the importance of looking after our staff and supporting them to do a great job and keep the public safe. If you take pride in your work and would enjoy being part of a happy crew, then I would love to hear from you. Of course we would normally ask for a CV but to start with just give me a call and have a chat and we can take it from there. I must tell you I’m looking for a person who enjoys good company and wants to be part of a great team. We promise to look after you with annual contract reviews and involve you in the day to day decisions regarding your job. It’s an important job and one that involves a bit of everything, as you can imagine it would when dealing with people and buses. So, if you have experience in large vehicle maintenance and feel it’s time for a change, we at Go Bus would love to talk to you. Just give me a call ….and by the way, these great roles are located in Christchurch or Tauranga – you decide! My name is Martin Armstrong. You can call me on 0274 557 345 or send me a text if you like and I’ll call you. Or send me an email to PS. you will need a heavy traffic licence… that means Class 4 M20923
