Remembering and Forgetting by Joe Barnett

Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God.

Deuteronomy 8:11

When Moses delivered his valedictory to Israel he charged them to remember how God had blessed them; then gave them fair warning that when they became prosperous, built ritzy houses, and wined and dined in luxury, they would be in danger of forgetting what the Lord had done for them (Deut. 8:10-14). And sure enough, that’s what happened.

Prosperity is a blessing; also a danger. It can – and should – produce humility; it can – and often does – produce pride. “You may say to yourself, ‘My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.’ But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth” (Deut. 8:17,18).

Don’t forget what is best remembered  or remember what is best forgotten.

Here is What God is Giving You  by Joe Barnett

 

That we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 5:16

Grace isn’t earned. It’s a gift from God.

God’s grace goes something like this…

Here is the world I’m giving you. In your world beautiful things will happen; also terrible things. Don’t be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. I will never leave you.

Here is the life I’m giving you. You might have never been. But you are, because my world wouldn’t have been the same without you. I love you.

Here is the future I’m giving you. Eternal salvation. The party wouldn’t be complete without you. I can’t wait to see you.

Grace meets you where you are,

but doesn’t leave you where it found you.

You’ve Come but Will You Stay? By Joe Barnett 

This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it? John 6:60

 A rich man. A passel of early disciples. Judas Iscariot. What did they have in common? They came to Jesus, but they didn’t stay.

Discipleship isn’t for sissies. It’s tough. Arduous. Demanding.

You have come to Jesus. Will you stay?

Are you willing to give up what you have for what he offers? “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me” (Mark 8:34).

Taking up your cross doesn’t mean bearing the pains and disappointments of life. The cross is for one – and only one – purpose: to die on.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said it this way: “When Christ calls a man he bids him come and die.”

You have come. Will you stay?

Be faithful in the here and now,

looking to the reward of the there and then.

How’s Your Hearing? By Joe Barnett

He who has ear to hear, let him hear. – Luke 14: 35

Scripture puts a priority on hearing.

The “Shema”=the centerpiece of Jewish prayers=began: “Hear, O Israel:

The Lord our God is one Lord” (Dt. 6:4).

“Let anyone with ears to hear listen!” Jesus said (Mk.4:23). “Anyone who listens to my teaching and obeys me is wise…But anyone whohears my teaching and ignores it is foolish” (Mt. 7:24, 26 NLT).

Each of the letters to the seven churches in Revelation ends with the words, “He who has an ear, let him hear what the spirit says…”

Then Jesus extends this invitation: “I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in” (Rv.3:20.

Hear, O Israel!

Hear, O Church!

Hear, O Christian!

Don’t let the noise of life drown out the voice of God.

Flubs Aren’t Final by Joe Barnett

I press on toward the goal to win the prize. Philippians 3:14

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of David? Is it his head-scratching character collapse; the blunder with Bathsheba? End of story? No! There are 150 psalms in your Bible; David wrote half of them.   God said he was “a man after his own heart” (Acts 13:22).

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Peter? Is it his weak-kneed, triple denial of Jesus? End of story? No! Peter was the keynote speaker on Pentecost, and he wrote two of the letters in your New Testament. He refused to live out his life in the shadow of shame.

Their flubs were mid-story, not end-story. So are yours.

The road to Victory almost always goes through a valley called Failure.

Improved Sound!

Many have noticed that for the first time since rebuilding, we are able to hear clearly throughout the auditorium. We have very good equipment, but it takes an electrical engineer turned Ball High School counselor (Jerry Edwards) to fine tune the system. Thank him for this wonderful improvement.

Cowboy Coffman!

We received the sad news that Cowboy Coffman’s house near Cherokee, TX, burned down recently. Caused by a grease fire in the kitchen. Allen spoke with him this week. He is doing as well as expected. This is the house that Cowboy grew up in. Cowboy said to tell everyone that he was this 85 year old man who burned his house down! Many of us remember Cowboy who had a carriage business and who ran for City Council in Galveston. He was a very faithful member of the Broadway family.

 

Potpourri!

Gilbert and Lydia Alderete have been assisting the thousands of people who sought refuge at NRG and George Brown in Houston. In addition they have been assisting their children and others from Hurricane Harvey. They are great examples.

Joan Mertens has completed another dream from her bucket list by visiting the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Shirley Henry says that Velma Williams may come back to Galveston for a “visit”.

Dorothy Jones surprised everyone by purchasing a new RAV-4. That makes 2 new RAV-4s in our parking lot. Nancy Bailey drove one from Amarillo, compliments of Harvey. Speaking of Amarillo, it was 38 degrees this past week. We’re thankful for the Galveston tropical weather.

The cruise ship business in Galveston has increased 38% over last year. This translates to more visitors on Sunday morning!

Unfathomable Love by Joe Barnett

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us. 2nd Cor. 5:21

Jesus’ agonizing shriek on the Cross, “My God, why have you forsaken me?” was answered with silence.

Our Savior’s severance from our God can be comprehended only by awareness of the nature of sin – sin separates the sinner from God: “Your iniquities have separated you from God…” (Is. 59:2).

It was our sins that caused the breach, for he took our iniquities upon himself (Is. 53:6).   “He changed places with us and put himself under that curse” (Gal. 3:13).

Both the shriek of the Savior and the silence of the Father, say, “This is how much we love you.”

His immeasurable sacrifice trumpets his unfathomable love.

Pause Before You Speak by Joe Barnett

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths. Ephesians 4:29

You’ve been hurt, offended, mistreated, and you’re hotter’n a microwave.

You’re not going to take it anymore; you’re going to give her a piece of your mind.

Before you do, punch the pause button and measure what you’re about to say by these questions . . .

Is this a loving thing to say? “Let all that you do be done in love” (1 Cor. 16:14 ESV).

Is this a godly thing to say?“ May the words of my mouth . . . be pleasing in your sight, O Lord” (Ps 19:14).

Is this a kind thing to say?“ If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue . . . your religion is worthless” (Jas 1:26 NLT).

Is this a gracious thing to say?“ Let your speech always be gracious” (Col 4:6 ESV). ”

We are responsible for some of what we hear and all of what we say.

Happy Birthday, Margaret!

In case you missed it, last Thursday was Margaret Winters’ birthday. Margaret first visited Galveston in 1954 chaperoning, along with her husband Loren, a group of high school students.   It was love at first sight for the Winters. Within several months they moved to Galveston with Margaret accepted an offer to teach music at Travis Elementary. Loren went to work for Santa Fe Railroad. Most importantly both became active members of Broadway. They were instrumental in starting and ministering the congregation on Crystal Beach. The rest is history.

Happy Birthday, Margaret!

He’s Calling Your Name by Joe Barnett

Go, tell his disciples and Peter. Mark 16:7

When the sound of the rooster’s crow filled Peter’s ears, remorse filled Peter’s heart, and “he broke down and wept”.

Peter’s weekend was drenched in tears. On Friday, his Lord had gone to the cross carrying the grief of his denial. There was nothing Peter could do to right his wrong.

Then came Sunday. Women trudged to the tomb, where the angel told them, “He has risen…go, tell his disciples and Peter…”

The Lord singled out Peter – called his name. He wasn’t thinking of his apostasy, but of his agony; reaching out to comfort him, not censure him.

He is your Savior, too – not looking to castigate and condemn, but to forgive and fortify. He knows your name and your need. Listen! He’s calling your name.

Don’t judge yourself by who you’ve been, but by who you’re becoming.

  • Ray Moody: Galveston, TX “Born on the Island 1959. Just relocated, awaiting wife’s arrival from school. Looking for a new church. Just had surgery resulting from injuries sustained during Hurricane Harvey. Inez Jones is another member with a new car, compliments of Harvey. She was attending her brother’s wedding when the flooding took hers. She and John were rescued by boat! Connie and Don Powell had no damage in Friendswood, nor did Shelly and Steve Kelly. However, Shelly and Steve have opened their home to a family with six children. We applaud them for their hospitality during this difficult time. Potpourri! We missed Jim Withers last Sunday who was experiencing some health issues. Last week Mariana was honored at Abilene Christian University for her Christian service as a missionary to Austria and Ireland. Her last 15 years have been spent in service with Come Before Winter. There were two separate ceremonies. ACU’s College of Biblical Studies presented her with their “Towel Award” representing the servant attitude of a Christian. Come Before Winter created the Mariana McGinty Long Fund in her honor. This fund will be used to support those women attending the renewals with their travel funds. She also received a beautiful crystal miniature world globe that marks her travels with CBW. She’s promised to show these gifts when she visits in early December.

Peace Be With You by Joe Barnett

You were called to peace. Colossians 3:15

In Jesus’ last meeting with his disciples before his death, he said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you…do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14: 27).

On the Sunday evening following his crucifixion, Jesus suddenly appeared in the room where those disciples were huddled behind locked doors. “Peace be with you,” he said (John 20:19).

The next Sunday, he showed up there again. “Peace be with you,” he said (John 20:26).

Why this repeated promise of peace? Because he knew they were paralyzed with fear and uncertainty. Their deepest need was peace and calm.

If you’re finding peace elusive, raise your hand.

God knows your anxieties. Tune out other voices and listen to him: “Peace be with you.”

Inner peace is not dependent on outer circumstances.

Your Strength and Your Song by Joe Barnett

The Lord is my strength and my song. Isaiah 12:2

“God is my salvation,” wrote Isaiah; “I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song.”

Your emotions are raw from the chafing manacles of fear. Fear that the love of your life won’t survive the surgeon’s scalpel. Fear that downsizing will land you in the dismissal queue. Or…name your fear.

But you possess the key to unlock the fetters of fear: God’s power! He “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20).

Don’t miss that last phrase – his power is at work within you.

You need no other reason to “trust and not be afraid!”

Neither limp or whimper. Trust his strength. Sing your song.

The solution to your fear is his strength, not yours.

You’re the Best at Something by Joe Barnett

We are God’s workmanship, created…to do good works,

“Find what you like to do, and do it so well that people will pay you to do it.”

That old chestnut is not just good advice; it’s a God-given game plan.

God mapped your course before you even showed up. It’s up to you to find and follow it.

How do you do that? By looking at what you’re good at; your unique skills and abilities: in a nutshell, by focusing on your strengths.

Are you hiding behind your perceived weaknesses?

I didn’t get an education.

I didn’t get the breaks.

It’s too late to start.

Whatever you add to that list will be something lots of people have conquered on their march to successful and meaningful lives.

Find and follow your strengths. You’re good at something. In fact…

You are the best there is at something.

Allen’s Notes on Harvey!

Kimberly and Jerry Edwards escaped harm. Went to Beaumont to assist her mother. No power and rain coming into mother’s home. Got stranded in Beaumont. . . . Bob and Ann Roland had to be rescued by boat from their home in Baytown. Their area received the highest rainfall in the storm ( 51+ Inches) . . . . Sara Campbell’s high rise was used as a rescue center by Jean Nichols and Joan Mertens.   Wendy Clayton, who lives in the high rise, served them hot tea (at the proper temperature) and scones while the storm raged. Wendy is from Wales and knows how to observe “Tea Time”. . . .Unrelated to “Harvey”, Mike Wortham had emergency surgery (inflamed appendix crisis) a few days before the storm. He is doing well, thanks to Amys TLC.

People thought Allen was crazy for coming to the Island on Friday before the storm struck the Texas coast. He was one of three vehicles on I-45 South crossing the Causeway onto the Island. Lanes heading north to Houston for refuge were bumper to bumper. . . . Joe and Dean Knox went to Temple to escape the storm. Should of stayed home! . . . .No power at Chris and Emily’s house. They took refuge in a motel in Texas City. Children thought they were on a vacation. . . . Shirley Bush Henry’s bank was flooded. Off work for a few days.  Armando Cardenas, not to be restrained by the storm, led singing at Avenue K Church of Christ last Sunday. There were 3 members in attendance.

The Isbells’ daughter Carla and Paul Stultz arrived before ”Harvey”, not knowing a storm was imminent! Carla was instrumental in restoring the building after hurricane “ IKE”.

The Strand businesses were flooded, but Galveston is resilient. Likely, many are open this Labor Day weekend. . . The last hurricane destroyed our building. Unable to use for two years.   Not a drop of water this time!

Everyone has his or her memories of this historic flood. But, Noah would say, “You call this a flood!”
