Your Storm Shelter by Joe Barnett

What kind of man is this? Even the winds  and the waves obey him.  Matthew 8:27

“A mature hurricane is by far the most powerful event on earth,” writes Sebastian Junger, in The Perfect Storm.  “The combined nuclear arsenals of the United States and the former Soviet Union don’t contain enough energy to keep a hurricane going for one day.  A typical hurricane encompasses a million cubic miles of atmosphere and could provide all the electric power needed by the United States for three or four years.”

Are you facing into the wild winds of a personal storm that seems equally powerful and devastating?

Like the names of hurricanes (Ike, Harvey, Irma), your storm may be one word:  Divorce.  Cancer.  Grief.

The only way to survive it is also one word:  Jesus.  In him you will receive mercy and find grace to help in your time of need (Hebrews 4:16).

The storm may be stronger than you, but Jesus is stronger than the storm.

How’s the Weather?  by Joe Barnett 

Today it will be stormy.  Matthew 16:3

The first thing I do when my feet hit the floor each morning is to check the weather.  And when I make a phone call, one of the first things after “Hello” is, “How’s the weather there?”

When the bigwigs asked Jesus to show them a sign from heaven, he said, “You are good at reading the weather signs in the sky, but you can’t read the obvious signs of the times” (Matthew 16:2-3).

The “signs of the times” were the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies in the person of Jesus.  But those religious leaders were blind to these signs.  They paid more attention to changes in the weather than to the changes made by Messiah’s presence in the world.    They were more concerned about gales than grace, precipitation than propitiation.

Meteorologists still get more attention than Messiah.

There’s something more important in life than talking about the weather.

He Lives Forever by Joe Barnett

I was dead, and behold I am alive forever and ever.

 Revelation 1:18

Jesus came into the world quietly. . . so quietly that the residents of Bethlehem had no notion that anything important was happening the night he was born in their little town.

But his resurrection was anything but quiet.  The apostle Paul wrote that after his resurrection, “he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living” (1st Corinthians 15:6).

If all the alleged witnesses were dead, there might be room for doubt, but it’s impossible to imagine enlisting over five hundred people in a hoax.

He is alive. . . interceding for you until you join him forever (Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25).

He is at God’s right hand,

validating your passport to heaven.

He Loves You as You Are by Joe Barnett

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us.

1st John 4:10

You don’t have to be perfect for God to love you. 

Your Bible shows people as they are, warts and all – and God as he is, loving them as they are.  All through scripture you see God’s love lavished on the flawed. . .

                Jacob was a cheat. God loved him anyway.

                David was an adulterer.  God loved him anyway.

                Peter was a traitor.  God loved him anyway.

They weren’t loved because they became better; they became better because they were loved.

God knows your weaknesses and failures; also your strengths and successes.  He loves you as you are.

You don’t have to become better before he will love you.  But you will become better because he loves you.

God isn’t waiting for a future version of you to love.

He loves you now.

Peace Be With You by Joe Barnett

May the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. – 2nd Thess. 3:16

In preparing his disciples for his death and departure, Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God, trust also in me” (Jn. 14:1).                                                                                              “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you” (Jn. 14:27).

Take to heart those words, as if spoken directly to you.

He has planted peace in the garden of your heart, but there may be some weeds growing there too:  worry, anger, bitterness.  Weed your garden daily.

Peace proliferates and weeds wilt when you uproot destructive moods and fix your mind on the Lord:  “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, whose thoughts are fixed on you”   (Is. 26:3 NLT).

Peace of mind rides in tandem with being at peace with God.

Is This In My Control?  By Joe Barnett

Search me, O God. . .and know my anxious thoughts.

Psalms 139:23

You can save yourself a lot of agitation by sorting out what is in your control and what isn’t.

Your actions, words, and thoughts are in your control.

Other people, the weather, and some life events are not.

Whatever you’re facing, ask, “Is this something I can control?” The answer will tell you if it’s worthy of your concern and cogitation.

You’ll be happier and more productive if you focus attention on the things you can control and avoid getting bent out of shape by the things you can’t.

“God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control” (2nd Timothy 1:7).

Freedom comes from letting go of the things that are beyond your control.

When Jesus Calls Your Name by Joe Barnett

Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”  Jn. 11:43

Mary Magdalene – one of the last at the cross and first at the tomb – stood outside the sepulcher weeping.  Angels appeared and asked why she was crying.  Because “they have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.”

Out of the corner of her eye, she saw a man whom she assumed was the gardener.  “Sir,” she said, “if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”

It wasn’t the gardener; it was Jesus.  But she didn’t recognize him… until he said her name. . .”Mary.” “Rabboni!” she cried.

At the grave of a dear friend, Jesus called his name: “Lazarus, come out!”

One glorious day he will call your name! (John 5:28).

When he calls your name your term of death will end, and your life-forever will begin.

We want to express our thanks to Jerry Edwards for re-adjusting and maintaining our speaker system.  Many have noticed the great improvement we experienced last week.  Good job, Jerry!

Congratulations!

Our Climate-Control God by Joe Barnett

He changes times and seasons. Daniel 2:21

My friend, minister/author Gene Shelburne, reminds us that in the 1970s the scariest threat we faced was what the Washington Post called a “new ice age”.

According to Time Magazine, Shelburne says, “the earth has been cooling at an unprecedented pace and scientists could detect no signs that the rate of cooling would be reversed in time to avoid massive climate crisis”.

“In 1975,” he notes, “Science News published an article titled ‘Chilling Possibilities’.  It was full of terrifying prophesies about ‘the new ice age’”.  Newsweek editorialized that politicians “could not be counted on to do enough to allay the effects of planetary cooling”.

“Believing in the God who set up our planet and established its seasons can quieten our climate paranoia,” Writes Shelburne.

The prophet Daniel tells us it is God who “changes times and seasons”.

If you wonder who is in control, try changing the weather.

By studying with Vicky one can see her thirst for scripture.  She is an intelligent young woman who understands the benefits of the living word and loves to share it with her peers.  We are so fortunate to have Vicky setting such a wonderful example. Keep up the good work, we love you.
