An Admired Legacy by Joe Barnett

 

Jesus did not come to be served, but to serve. Mark 10:45

 

I recently presided at the funeral of one of the best men I’ve known, a quiet, humble man of servant spirit. Many of those who gathered for the service had a feeling of severe loss: he had touched their lives with warm friendship and unselfish service.

As I drove away from the cemetery, I thought about a man who was a total contrast to my departed friend. King Jehoram’s wretched eight-year reign, recorded in 2nd Chronicles 21 ends with the appalling epitaph: “He passed away, to no one’s regret” (v. 20).

Jehoram probably thought his position and power would define his legacy. It did. He is remembered as a ruthless, immoral, self-serving, despicable despot.

King Jesus left a legacy of serving and saving – a king we gratefully glorify, honor, and worship

Useful or useless is an individual choice.

Annual Missions Sunday!

We are pleased Mariana Long is with us this morning. Broadway has supported her work with Come Before Winter, and missions to Ireland and Austria for a number of years.       Mariana was part of a group from Abilene Christian in the 60’s who went to Vienna, Austria. This evolved to become the Eastern European Mission, which distributes Bibles to that part of the world. She has participated in thirty-two     renewals with Come Before Winter. In 2019, we will continue to support her mission activities including her annual mission to Northern Ireland.

 

Special Minister Today

Today, Dr. Joe Barnett is our speaker. He has been the speaker for the Herald of Truth, and he has edited three brotherhood periodicals. He was the minister for the Broadway Church of Christ in Lubbock Texas, the largest Church of Christ in the world, when he retired to devote himself to religious writings. He writes a daily devotional which is free. Each day, people in 32 nations read his thoughts. He is the most prolific writer in the history of the churches of Christ. He and Allen are especially close friends and have been for over fifty years.

 

Mission Sunday!

Annually Broadway has set aside a special Sunday to raise support for missions. On December 9th, next Sunday, we’ll have a special collection, in addition to our regular contribution. Monies collected this year will be divided equally among Come Before Winter (Mariana Long), Sunset International Bible Institute Solar Ministry, Gospel Chariot Missions in Africa, Miguel Zuniga, and Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Program.. The Disaster Relief Fund is new to our outreach. It will be assisting churches in the areas affected by the hurricanes in 2018..

Seasonal Thoughts by Joe Barnett

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. – Psalm 107:1

Thanksgiving is a calendar-reminder of the blessings of God, the Great Giver. On the heels of Thanksgiving comes Christmas, when we are nudged to be givers. The season spurs us to be both grateful and generous

Maybe we eat too much and spend too much. But I have a feeling that God enjoys the season. He isn’t a Sky Scrooge, bah-humbugging our thankful and generous impulses. I imagine he smiles as he receives our thanks and eavesdrops on the joy we receive from showing a little love to those who have shown us a lot of it.

May our feelings of thanks at Thanksgiving include gratitude for spiritual blessings, not just physical ones. And may our giving at Christmas include causes that make a difference.

Unexpressed gratitude is ingratitude.

The bill of lading for each trip exceeded $80,000. This will be Broadway’s first year to contribute.

Appreciate People and Say So

by Joe Barnett

How good is a timely word. Proverbs 15:23

Being noticed and appreciated fulfills a deep human need.

Today consciously look for things that you appreciate and can praise in those you cross paths with. When you acknowledge someone’s work, you contribute to their happiness and sense of self-worth.

Don’t wait for a newsworthy performance; keep an eye out for small things that are deserving of hurrahs. Don’t just see them; acknowledge them. Tell people you appreciate them and tell them why.

Everyone needs to know that they matter; that they are valued. But they won’t know it unless you tell them. Well-chosen, well-timed, sincere words of praise are priceless. Greek philosopher Xenophon said, “The sweetest of all sounds is praise.”

Praise God as the giver, those who enrich your life as the gift.

Make This a Happy Day by Joe Barnett

There is nothing better for people than to be happy
and to enjoy themselves as long as they live. Ec. 3:12

Canadian broadcaster Robert Blondin toured numerous countries, asking 600 people of diverse cultures one question: “What makes people happy?”
The three highest ranking answers were: controlling one’s attitude, being thankful, and doing good.
Here are six things you can do to make this a happy day:
1. Pinpoint a blessing that you’ve been taking for granted. Think how much it means and thank God.
2. Take ownership of your attitude. Embrace the day with a smile; eliminate the scowl.
3. Be kind and considerate, even when others aren’t.
4. Do something nice for someone, without expecting thanks.
5. Refuse entrance to thoughts about a painful past.
6. Be positive and cheerful all day.

Have a good day, my friend.

Annual Missions Sunday!
This year Broadway will help five different mission efforts. The first one is Miguel and Hope Zuniga who work with the Northside Church of Christ in San Angelo, TX. Our relationship with the Zunigas goes back following Hurricane Ike. At that time they were working with the church in Laredo, TX. Broadway supported them in that work for several years. While there they were influential in helping consolidate three congregations into one vibrant growing church. Miquel and Hope then felt the need to return to their former home in San Angelo. Besides their work at Northside, Miguel is also teaching Bible classes at the Southwest Bible Institute. Northside is already experiencing growth with the Zunigas’ energy and strong faith.

Have a Great Week!

Curb Your Agitation by Joe Barnett

Do not be agitated – it can only bring harm to you. Psa. 37:8

Psalm 37 opens with these words: “Do not fret because of evil doers.” Various translations have it: “Do not be agitated”; “Do not be upset”; “Don’t be annoyed”.
Eugene Peterson paraphrased verse 8 this way: “Bridle anger, trash your wrath, cool your pipes – it only makes things worse.”
So, how do we curb our agitations; cool our pipes? The answer is found in the same psalm. It repeatedly reminds us to stop obsessing about the cause of our agitation and get focused on the Lord:

Trust in the Lord;
Delight yourself in the Lord;
Commit your way to the Lord;
Be still before the Lord;
Wait for the Lord.

Agitation is poison. Don’t drink from that glass.

Layer Up by Joe Barnett

He has clothed me with garments of salvation. Isa. 61:10

Die hard joggers run in all kinds of weather. Where seasonal temperatures are extreme, most prefer winter to summer because they can add layers in cold weather, but can only take off so much in a sizzling summer without being arrested.
The apostle Paul posted his signature locker collection for the Christian runner: “Cloth yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience…And over all these virtues put on love…” (Col. 3:12-14).
Monitor your foul weather moods and layer up. When the cold wind of irritation nips at you, reach for a pullover of kindness. When the icy mist of frustration comes at you, zip up a jacket of patience. When a downpour of antagonism comes at you, a poncho of love is the answer.

Beware of spiritual frostbite.                                                                                                                                         Joe Barnett’s website: www.pathwayco.com

 Pray that God will help you sleep.
 Trust that God will bring you through!

The Wonders of God by Joe Barnett

In his hand is the life of every creature. Job 12:10

Hummingbirds are fascinating creatures. They weigh less than one ounce; consume ½ of their weight in sugar daily; have a heart rate of more than 1,200 beats per minute; take 250 breaths per minute. Then there’s this fact that I’m struggling to wrap my mind around: their wings beat from 50 to 200 flaps per second.

Don’t let this day pass without considering the wonders of creation.

“Ask the animals, and they will teach you. Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you. Speak to the earth, and it will instruct you. Let the fish of the sea speak to you. They all know that the Lord has done this. For the life of every living thing is in his hand” (Job 12:7-10).

There is no lack of wonders; only a lack of wonder.

To Tell the Truth by Joe Barnett

Do not lie. Do not deceive one another. Lev. 19:11

Ken Stegall, an admired preacher friend, wrote about a man who had a small grocery store in Sheridan, AR in the 1940s.
A customer told him she needed a large chicken. He reached into the ice bin, pulled out a chicken and put it on the scale. The lady said she needed a bigger one; company was coming.
He returned it to the bin – and since it was the only chicken he had – pulled it back out, put it on the scale and added a few ounces by pressing his thumb on the back of the scale.
The lady said, “I’ll take them both.”
Stegall writes: “A lie takes control of your life. Deception requires constant cover-up. It destroys relationships…friendships and marriages are destroyed.”
He’s right, you know.

If you always tell the truth,
you never have to remember what you said.

We are needed again to assist in collecting coats, sweaters, breakers, sweat suits, etc. of all sizes, weights and types. There is a strong need for children’s sizes, especially small children.
We need to take the coats to Houston this week. If you have some and have not brought them to the building, please call Mikey (761-0926 or 762-7989). You can bring them to her house. THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE BEEN SO GENEROUS.

Gospel Chariot Ministry Update!

We have received news that Gospel Chariot has been extensively involved in S. Africa.           They have now reached most of the countries in this region and are planning missions into the western part of the continent. In addition to their preaching ministries, they are also distributing Bibles, child-size wheelchairs, and clothing to the poor.

They are purchasing Bibles at a cost of $3 each, printed by a firm in China.                                   Most of this expense has been funded. Now there is a need for an additional chariot (an 18 wheeler). As expected, there are financial needs. The estimated cost of the chariot is $160,000. Broadway will include this ministry in our annual missions contributions. Stay tuned for more information.

Choose Your Wardrobe by Joe Barnett

Always be humble, gentle, and patient. Ephesians 4:2

Do you remember the tale about the guy who came to work out of sorts? His secretary asked, “Did you wake up grouchy this morning?” He said, “No, I let her sleep.”
Consider these two lists:
Cranky vs Pleasant; Critical vs Gentile; Cruel vs Kind, Unpleasant vs Patient
Which list comes closest to matching your profile? If family members were to pick the one that best describes you, which would it be? Your co-workers? The people where you shop?
Paul counsels us to “clothe {ourselves} with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience” (Col. 3:12). We’ll either dress in those glad rags or slip into the grungy duds of the opposite: hostility rather than compassion, meanness rather than kindness, arrogance rather than humility, harshness rather than gentleness, agitation rather than patience.
“Me first” eliminates all others. . .and God.

Your Safe Place by Joe Barnett

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10

My firstborn’s safe place was my lap, with two fingers of his right hand in his mouth and his left hand clutching the corner of a frayed security blanket, reduced by wear to the size of a dish towel. “Tranquility” could have been tattooed on his forehead.
Your adult safe place may be your home. You walk through the door, slip off your jacket, kick off your shoes, and collapse in your familiar recliner. Home sweet home.

There are times when we need more; seasons when we come face-to-face with fear, and know that a safe place we need isn’t a place; it’s a person. “God is our refuge and strength, and ever-present help in trouble” (Psalms 46:1). “My God is my rock. I can run to him for safety” (2nd Samuel 22:3).

God is your safe place and the door is always open.

Jesus Died in Your Place by Joe Barnett

Father, I want those you have given me
to be with me where I am. John 17:24

Adam Scott was a bright, dynamic, lovable young man who had just completed law school when a senseless gunshot ended his life, just days before his 27th birthday. His father, Jack Scott, said he would gladly have died in his place. I’m sure he would have.
The Apostle Paul’s heart was overwhelmed with grief because of his Jewish family and friends rejection of Jesus. “I would be willing to be forever cursed-cut off from Christ! – if that would save them,” he said (Romans 9:3). Eugene Peterson has Paul adding, “I’d do it in a minute.” I’m sure he would have.
Dr. Scott couldn’t die in place of his son. Paul couldn’t die in place of his people.
Jesus could – and did – die in your place.                                                                                                     Jesus chose to die for you rather than live without you.

Thomas lived his life in Galveston and worked as a painting contractor. He will be missed by the entire Martinez family. Keep the family in your prayers.
Opportunity to Make a Difference!
Frequently we are approached on the streets of Galveston by individuals in need of help. Here’s a suggestion: Place 2-3 of our snack packs in the back seat of your car, convenient for when the need arises. If interested, please contact Armando, Joe or Mikey. You may make a difference!

Report from Spain!

I and nine others arrived in Madrid following a 9- hour (sleepless) flight. More arrive Saturday. I’m so grateful to have an extra day before work starts Friday. On Monday, 45 participants from 17 countries arrive…and for 5 days and 4 nights we will pour over the book of Matthew, worship together, pray and encourage each other. How rich it will be.
Thank you – again – and again for your partnership in this ministry.
You are loved and appreciated!

Grow Up by Joe Barnett

Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord. 2 Peter 3:18

A line from the apostle Peter’s first letter runs: “Get rid of all malicious behavior and deceit…Be done with hypocrisy and jealousy and backstabbing” (1st Peter 2:1).
He must have been writing to some bad dudes.
Not so fast.
Earlier in that letter he called them God’s chosen people (1st Peter 1:1); cleansed by the blood of Jesus (1st Peter 1:2); God’s children (1st Peter 1:14); born again (1st Peter 1:23).
First, he assured them of their salvation, then counseled them to abandon their toxic practices. Bad habits aren’t washed away in the baptistry; a new life begins there, but growth doesn’t end there.
Don’t doubt your salvation because you messed up. Chip away at destructive attitudes, language, and behavior. You’ll become more and more like Jesus as you grow (2nd Cor. 3:18).

We don’t change to be saved, but because we are saved.

Help from the Youth Class!

The Wednesday evening class for our youth learned how to fill the sack lunches that are given people in need. Sandi Moeller and Darla Lewis teach the class. Thirty sacks were filled by Max Lewis; Mae, Oliver and Molly Carnes (grandchildren of Sandi) and Kylie Garvin.

Per a suggestion from Duncan Pharis, they wrote a note for every sack.

Good job!! Much appreciation from Joe and Mikey.

Freedom by Joe Barnett

If the Son sets you free, your will be free indeed. Jn.8:32

Jorge scaled the fence, eluded border guards, slipped into the rail yard, dodged a 200-ton locomotive, and made a perilous dash for the one thing he craved above all else. Freedom!
It’s impossible for those of us who have lived in freedom all our lives to fathom the nightmare existence under brutal regimes where torture is common and terror is daily.
It is likewise impossible for those of us who grew up in church to imagine the emptiness of life without it.
For a moment, focus your mind on this: “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death” (Romans 8:1-2).

Praise God.

There is no freedom from responsibility,
But in Christ there is freedom from fear.

A Good Investment of Time

by Joe Barnett

Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path.
Psalm 119:105

Dr. Charles Eliot, Harvard University President (1869-1909), once said a five foot shelf of books could provide “a good substitute for a liberal education” to anyone who would devote fifteen minutes a day to reading them.
Editors from Collier told Eliot if he would pick the books to fill that shelf they would publish them. The result was the Harvard Classics, a fifty-one volume anthology of world literature classics, published in 1910, along with Eliot’s Reading Guide, titled “Fifteen Minutes a Day”. He called it a “Portable University”.
Here’s an alternate use of time: You can read through the Bible by reading just three chapters a day six days a week and five chapters on Sunday – an investment of less than ten minutes per day.

The person who can’t read is no worse off than the person who can but won’t.

We Are Family by Joe Barnett

Love each other as brothers and sisters. Romans 12:10

You didn’t choose me. I didn’t choose you. But God chose us both, so we are family.
Do we have differences? Sure. Differences can lead to divisiveness – but don’t have to. There are some to the “right” and some to the “left” with whom I disagree. But we’re still family.
Family fusses make no sense to me because, in spite of differences, we have so much in common: we are enthralled by the same manger, rescued by the same Savior, saved by the same cross, elated by the same empty tomb, and destined for the same home.
Slap that sentence on the fridge before you go to the meeting and write it on the chalkboard when you’re discussing differences.

God’s children don’t need to look alike,
but need to love each other a lot.

First, Pray by Joe Barnett

First I prayed to the God of heaven. – Nehemiah 2:4

Nehemiah had a good job as the king’s cupbearer, but he was depressed. Jerusalem, where his ancestors were buried, was in shambles: its wall flattened, its gates burned, its citizens dejected.
He wanted to go to Jerusalem and rebuild, but that required the king’s permission. King Artaxerxes sensed Nehemiah’s distress and asked, “What is it you want?”
Note Nehemiah’s words: “First I prayed to the God of heaven. Then I answered the king.” It had to be a very brief prayer: “Help, Lord!” – or something like that.
He asked permission to go and rebuild. Wish granted.
He didn’t attribute the favorable response to his smooth spiel, or to good luck. He said, “Because the gracious hand of my God was upon me, the king granted my request.”
Whatever you’re facing…First, pray.

You don’t have to pray well. The power of pray is not in the one who prays, but in the one who hears.

Worth More than Gold by Joe Barnett

Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works.

Titus 2:7

If you’ve seen “Chariots of Fire” you know the inspiring story of Eric Liddell, who broke the world record and won the gold in the 400 meter competition in the 1924 Paris Olympics.

Here’s the rest of the story.

After the Olympics, Eric went to Tianjin, China to work as a teacher/missionary. In 1943 he was imprisoned by the Japanese in the Weihsien Internment Camp, where he died in 1945, at age forty-three. A memorial monument on the grounds of the former prison camp pays tribute to Liddell, saying his “life was spent encouraging young people to make their best contribution to the betterment of mankind.”

Your encouragement is worth more than gold to those whose lives you’re touching. You will continue to influence them long after you are gone.

You may never know who you inspired, or when, or how.

We are delighted that Linda will remain in Galveston and with us at Broadway. Congratulate her and introduce yourself to her mother, Lauren Stevens, who is with us today.

Update from Mariana!

I’m back in Texas! I’ve attended the Red River Family Encampment. My good friend Jim McGuiggan spoke. It was great to spend time with him and his daughter, Linda.

This past Saturday evening, I hosted the Hillcrest Mission Committee. Reggie Hiller, missionary to refugees in Vienna, became acquainted with the group. The following Sunday morning, Reggie presented her ministry at Hillcrest. It was well received and interest was stirred. There is so much to be done there – so few workers and such a shortage of funds…and probably so little time for opportunities before the refugees are relocated. There have been 40 plus baptisms this year.

In two weeks we will begin preparations for the CBW schedule for Spain.

I still have plans to return to North Ireland next spring.

Words cannot express my gratitude for your support and prayers.

Love, Mariana

It’s Not Me by Joe Barnett

 

Each of you has received a gift to use to serve others.

1st Peter 4:10

You pulled it from the clothes rack; then put it back. Picked another one…and another. “Hmm, this one’s nice.” Another…and another. Then back to hmm. Another. And back to hmm. You snagged it and headed to the dressing room. Tried it on. Looked in the mirror. “It’s nice,” you said to yourself, “but it’s not me.”

Your preferences and talents are yours alone. That’s because you’re custom-made; there’s no one else like you. That’s God’s doing, so you’re okay just the way you are.

Some areas of church work are out of your comfort zone; not a fit. “It’s not me.” Nothing wrong with that.

Find your fit. “Each of you has received a gift to use to serve others,” wrote Peter. Then added: “Be good servants of God’s various gifts of grace.”

Make the most of what you do best.

Let It Go by Joe Barnett

A fool gives full vent to anger,  but a wise man quietly holds it back. Proverbs 29:11

While his wife was making breakfast, Dan suddenly hollered, “Be careful!” She jumped and said, “What?”

“The eggs!” he shouted. “You need to be careful, or they’ll stick to the pan.”

A minute later he yelled, “Salt the eggs! You always forget the salt!”

She shot him a hands-on-hips glare and said, “What’s wrong with you?”

Dan said, “I just wanted you to know what it feels like when we’re in the car together and I’m driving.”

Have you become the resident-critic? Relax. Let it go.

“If you go on hurting each other and tearing each other apart, be careful, or you will completely destroy each other” (Galatians 5:15).

“A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone” (2nd Timothy 2:24).

Pause.   Think. Speak. In that order.

The One-Word Answer by Joe Barnett

Trust in God; trust also in me. John 14:1

I have no helpful answers to the “Why?” questions.

Why were twenty first-graders killed in a senseless shooting at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut?

Why did Ellicott City, Maryland, get hammered by a town-destroying flood, while still in the throes of recovery from a deluge that engulfed them two years earlier?

Why were three teenage girls in Houston, Texas, killed by a drunk driver who ran a red light and T-boned their Ford Excursion?

Why cancer? Why addiction? Why divorce? Why pain?

Questions for which my only answer is four words: “I do not know.”

But I have a one word answer to one question: “Does God care?” The one word answer is Jesus. The sacrificial death of God’s Son, which will ultimately eliminate all suffering and sorrow, and destroy death forever, answers that question.

The only retirement program with a “forever” guarantee is Jesus.

Grow As You Go by Joe Barnett

Is not wisdom found among the aged?

Does not long life bring understanding? Job 12:12

“As you grow, you learn more,” said Morrie Schwartz, in Tuesdays with Morrie. “If you stayed at twenty-two, you’d always be as ignorant as you were at twenty-two. Aging is not just decay, you know. It’s growth.”

Laura Carstensen, Stanford University’s top aging expert, slams the social norm that tells older people to go away quietly into the night. She believes older people should be saying, “I’m not done yet. I’ve got stuff to do, and I’m going to make a difference.”

We can’t decide what to call the older set: elderly, senior citizens, geriatrics? Whatever moniker we choose will offend someone. Laura has a suggestion: “I like the term ‘perennials’ – we’re still here, blossoming again and again.”

The trick is not to be as dumb at eighty-two as we were at twenty-two.

Wisdom doesn’t always come with age;  age sometimes comes alone.

Two Are Better Than One by Joe Barnett

If one falls down, his friend can help him up. Ecc.4:10

At a Special Olympics race – where children with disabilities were competing – a cute kid named Timmy quickly took the lead and was far ahead. He was nearing the finish line when he looked back and saw that his friend had fallen and hurt himself. Timmy stopped.

People shouted, “Run, Timmy, run!” He ran alright – back to his friend. He helped him up, brushed off the dirt, and the two jogged together, arms around each other’s shoulders, coming in last.

“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity” Proverbs 17:17. Sooner or later we all fall; it’s included in the price of the ticket to life. We need the help of others – and they need ours.

The best heart exercise is lifting someone up.

Change – For Better or Worse by Joe Barnett

Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2nd Peter 3:18

 

Have you been back to your old hometown lately? Not the same as it was, is it?

I was recently in two towns where I once lived. One is a vibrant, up-n-at-em community. I remember when 34th Street was as far south as the city went. Now it’s solidly built out beyond 134th Street.

The other is a small town that was once a humming hamlet, with the main drag housing a block of booming businesses. All are now boarded up, not a single business on the block

I felt pride and pain. Neither is the same place it used to be. And I’m not the same person I was when I lived there.

Places and people change – for better or worse. Are you pleased with the way you’ve changed? Is God?

There’s no standing still. You’re growing or shrinking.

What’s Your Nickname? by Joe Barnett

Joseph…whom the apostles called Barnabas. Acts 4:36

A nickname usually emphasizes a conspicuous feature. “Hey Red.” “How’s it goin’ Slim?” “Hi Lefty.”

His name was Joseph, but you don’t know him by that name. You know him by his nickname – Barnabas. That’s the name tag the apostles pinned on him: “Joseph…whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means Son of Encouragement).”

Every time we cross paths with Barnabas in the New Testament he is building someone up, standing up for someone, encouraging someone. The apostles reasoned, “Joseph is such an encourager, from now on let’s call him Barnabas.”

If you were pegged by what best describes you, what would your nickname be?

Your parents named you; your actions define you

Happy Anniversary!

June and Jim Hardin are celebrating their Fortieth Wedding Anniversary today. Here is information that you might not know about this special couple:

Jim is very proud of his name and serves as president of the John Wesley Hardin fan club; Allen serves as Vice-President. Their goal is to show that all 27 killings attributed to John Wesley Hardin were justifiable! In his early career Jim navigated barges in Galveston Bay. June reminds Allen of his older sister Lacreta. The Hardins are long time friends of Jean Nichols, as they all attended Westbury Church of Christ in Houston.

We are so fortunate to have them at Broadway for these years. Wish them a blessed day.

Judging by Appearance by Joe Barnett

 Who are you to judge your neighbor? James 4:12

In Durham, NC, he was known as the “Street Fiddler”. He could do it all: Bach, Mozart, Hank Williams, Texas Swing. His name was Dave, but only a few old-timers knew that.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Hardly anyone knew that the “Street Fiddler” spoke several languages, was a graduate of Duke University, and a former journalist with encyclopedic knowledge.

He was judged by his appearance – a bespectacled, disheveled old man with gray hair, who staked out a spot on 9th Street in Durham, bent over his violin and rarely spoke. Dave fought mental illness for much of his life and never had a steady job after he turned 30.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   The “Street Fiddler” – David McKnight – died January 17, 2017, at age 69. Brain tumor.

Judging others doesn’t define them. It defines me.

Allen’s Other Job!

After two weeks of trial on a capital murder case, the jury could not reach a verdict. The court declared a mistrial. The case had been featured nationally on the TV show “Cold Case Files”. As a defense lawyer, a mistrial to Allen is better than guilty!

The Glory of God by Joe Barnett

May the whole earth be filled with his glory. Psalms 72:19

After viewing earth from space, Payload Specialist Charles Walker said: “I felt strangely unfulfilled. Here was a tremendous visual spectacle, but viewed in silence. There was no grand musical accompaniment, no triumphant, inspired sonata or symphony. Each one of us must write the music of this sphere for ourselves.”

The title of the music we write, lifted from David’s doxology, should be “The Glory of God”: “Praise be to the Lord God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds. Praise be to his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory” (Psalms 72:18-19).

Our song will be discordant, for we “fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). But we don’t sing solo; the whole earth harmonizes, giving glory to God.

The important thing is the Big He, not the Big Me.

Our Everywhere God by Joe Barnett

Where can I flee from your presence? Psalms 139:7

Psalm 139 sketches the scope of God’s knowledge and presence.

It says there is no limit to his knowledge. He knows us through-and-through: knows when we sit and when we stand; knows what we think before we think it, and what we say before we say it. (verses 1-4).

And it says there is no limit to his presence. “Where can I flee from your presence?” We can’t turn off the light and hide in the dark, for darkness and light are the same to him. (verses 7-12).

We can hide our real self from people, but not from God. We can deceive people, but not God. He knows everything about us.

Scary? Depends. Soothing? Depends. Whether the cop on the corner is friend or foe depends on our conduct.

Be sure what you read, what you watch, and where you go will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

Integrity by Joe Barnett

The integrity of the upright guides them. Proverbs 11:3

Bobby Jones is on every Who’s Who list of the greatest golfers in history: winner of thirteen significant championships, and the only player to win the Grand Slam (all four major tournaments) in the same calendar year (1930).

His integrity was even more impressive than his play. In the 1925 U.S. Open, the head of his club brushed the grass as he set up to make his chip shot to the eleventh green, causing a slight movement of the ball that no one saw but him. Jones informed a USGA official that he was calling a penalty stroke on himself. He lost the Open by that one stroke.

Your unique characteristics identify you. Where those traits place you in the pecking order doesn’t mean much. But if integrity tops your list, you are a gold-medal winner.

Do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.

Contentment: A Key to Happiness by Joe Barnett

Godliness with contentment is great gain. 1st Tim. 6:6

According to a Houston Chronicle column (Oct. 25, 2017), Albert Einstein, arriving in Tokyo in 1922, didn’t have any “tip” money. So the Nobel winning scientist scribbled a note and gave it to the bellhop, saying someday the handwritten note would “probably be worth more than a regular tip.”

I’ll say! That note, which came to be known as “Albert Einstein’s Theory of Happiness,” sold for a jaw-dropping $1.3 million at a Jerusalem auction on October 24, 2017.

Here’s what the note-in-place-of-a-tip said: “A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness.”

Worth $1.3 million? I don’t know. But the message is solid gold, reminding us that contentment is a key to happiness.

Your Bible says it this way: “Godliness with contentment is great gain.” Great maxim! And it’s free.

The secret to contentment is a selective memory:

remembering what’s gone right, not what’s gone wrong.

Your Bible is Your Best Friend by Joe Barnett

The unfolding of your words gives light.  Psalms 119:130

It’s been said that if you live with a lame man, before long you will walk with a limp.                                                    Clubs, clans, and cliques prove that people become like those they hang out with.

The same is true with what you listen to and watch.

If you’re a news junkie, there’s a good chance you are perpetually anxious and angry.

If you’re feeding at the trough of trash, you’ll begin to smell like it.

On the other hand, make your Bible your best friend, and it will be transformative.

The longest chapter in the Bible is Psalms 119.   It tells you that if you spend time in the Word:  you will begin to walk in his ways, turn your eyes away from worthless things, gain knowledge and good judgment, rejoice in his promises, and experience peace.

Work at the perfume counter, and you’ll smell like perfume.

Work in the fish market, and you’ll smell like fish.

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.

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.

Baptism

Last Sunday we were rejoicing to witness the baptism of Vicky. Chris Garvin, who baptized Vicky, writes:

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.

Our Speaker is Dr. Joe Barnett

Broadway welcomes Dr. Joe Barnett as the speaker this morning.  He is a regular “special speaker” for Broadway.  He has written more spiritual material than anyone in the history of Churches of Christ.  After retiring as minister of the largest Church of Christ in the world, Barnett has devoted himself to writing.  He is the author of numerous books and essays.  He writes a devotional each day.  Almost every member of Broadway reads his devotionals.  These devotionals are read by people each morning in 32 different nations.

These devotionals are without cost to the reader.  If you are a visitor, you may begin receiving them each day by contacting www.pathwayco.com.

Potpourri
