The Things We Don’t Understand

Today’s Journey Through Scripture Readings: 1 Chronicles 25-27; John 9:1-23


13 Then they led the man who had been born blind to the Pharisees.14 Now Jesus made the mud and smeared it on the man’s eyes on a Sabbath day. 15 So Pharisees also asked him how he was able to see.

The man told them, “He put mud on my eyes, I washed, and now I see.”

16 Some Pharisees said, “This man isn’t from God, because he breaks the Sabbath law.” Others said, “How can a sinner do miraculous signs like these?” So they were divided. 17 Some of the Pharisees questioned the man who had been born blind again: “What do you have to say about him, since he healed your eyes?”

He replied, “He’s a prophet.”

18 The Jewish leaders didn’t believe the man had been blind and received his sight until they called for his parents. 19 The Jewish leaders asked them, “Is this your son? Are you saying he was born blind? How can he now see?”

20 His parents answered, “We know he is our son. We know he was born blind. 21 But we don’t know how he now sees, and we don’t know who healed his eyes. Ask him. He’s old enough to speak for himself.” 22 His parents said this because they feared the Jewish authorities. This is because the Jewish authorities had already decided that whoever confessed Jesus to be the Christ would be expelled from the synagogue.23 That’s why his parents said, “He’s old enough. Ask him.”


I’ve said it before and I will say it again, “Math was invented by demon possessed people who are out to drive us all nuts.” Why do I say it? Because it’s true (that last part was for my wife who says, “Math is your friend.” I would say she is nuts but then again, she married me, that confirms it). Really, I say it because I don’t understand it. My late mother-in-law used to tell me that I had to have missed something early on and just never caught up. I guess she could be right.

There are many things I don’t understand. I also think computer printers are demonic. As long as they work and do the job they are supposed to do, we get along fine. When they fail, however, I usually get upset after I mess with it for a while and then get frustrated with it until somehow I happen on the problem/ Well that, or I call Cindy to come fix “her” printer. The computer, I’m fine with that (well, most of the time). Printers are a different story altogether.

I know plenty of people who think the computer is the same problem. Why are we like this? We are afraid of what we don’t understand.

In today’s lesson, I would argue that the Pharisees behave in much that way. They don’t know how Jesus does all his miracles. They say as much. “Some Pharisees said, ‘This man isn’t from God, because he breaks the Sabbath law.’ Others said, ‘How can a sinner do miraculous signs like these?’ So they were divided.”

When the Pharisees couldn’t understand, they reached for what they did know, Jesus was working on the Sabbath! I ask you this, good reader, how much work is it to mix a little dirt with some water, not a lot of dirt and water, to make enough mud to cover a man’s eyes. I guess it is better to let someone who has always been blind continue to be blind.

In the Pharisees, we find a group with no love, a group with no compassion. The thing to me is, they knew the law. The knew the law well. That knowledge would have included what they asked of Jesus, what was the most important commandment and agreed with Jesus that it was love. How quickly we sometimes forget.

Have a blessed day in the Lord.

With Joy and Thankfulness,

I Am

Today’s Journey Through Scripture Passages: 1 Chronicles 22-24; John 8:28-59

28 So Jesus said to them, “When the Human One is lifted up, then you will know that I Am. Then you will know that I do nothing on my own, but I say just what the Father has taught me. 29 He who sent me is with me. He doesn’t leave me by myself, because I always do what makes him happy.” 30 While Jesus was saying these things, many people came to believe in him. (John 8:28-59, Common English Bible).

Have you ever wondered how times a certain word or phrase is in the Bible? It wasn’t too long ago you could find out how many times a single word was in the Bible by looking at a concordance. For example, the word money is in the Bible 169 times. That doesn’t count the times other words are used like say, denarius.

The word love is in the Bible 792 times. If you wanted to know, you broke out your trusty old concordance and look your word up and get your answer. There are four words in Greek we translate to love. It doesn’t break that down for us.

But, if you wanted to know how many times love and money were in the Bible? the only way to know was to sit and count it by hand. Today, not only is it easier with a computer, it is faster than you could look in a concordance and get the answer for one word. Oh, by the way, love and money are in the same verse in the Bile eight times.

What got me started to think about all this was our passage above. “…When the Human One is lifted up, then you will know that I Am..” You will know that I Am.” Those two little words, three letters, four characters if you count the space, say a great deal.

When I saw “I Am,” my first thought went back to God and Moses having a conversation. Really it was more God giving Moses instructions and Moses giving God excuses as to why Moses couldn’t carry out God’s instructions. Specifically, God had told Moses to go and gain the freedom of the Israelites slaves in Egypt. Moses asks God, “What if they ask your name.” God simply replied, “I Am who I Am.” And yes, that would count twice when the computer counted it.

God had to get the divine role into the thick-headed Israelites (our heads are just about as thick) as God was pulling them out of Egypt. In the first five books of the Bible alone, you can find “I Am” 151 times. Many of the times “I Am” is there it would be followed by “the Lord your God.” Yes, as in, “I Am the Lord your God.”

The computer doesn’t tell me how many times both words are capitalized. That would probably make it even more clear how many times we see this name for God. But, we know the occasion that is our lesson today is one of those times. There should be no doubt, Jesus is alluding to “I Am” as a name for God. “When the Human One is lifted up, then you will know that I Am.” It doesn’t say, “…then you will know that I am the Son of God.” It doesn’t say, “…then you will know that I am your friend.” It doesn’t say, “…then you will know that I am a duck.” It simply says, “…then you will know that I Am.” in other words, “…then you will know that I am God.”

Have a blessed day in the Lord.

With Joy and Thankfulness,
Keith

A Peeping Tom Story?

Today’s Journey Through Scripture Readings: 1Chron 19-21; John 8:1-27

The legal experts and Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery. Placing her in the center of the group, they said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of committing adultery. In the Law, Moses commanded us to stone women like this. What do you say?” They said this to test him because they wanted a reason to bring an accusation against him. Jesus bent down and wrote on the ground with his finger.

They continued to question him, so he stood up and replied, “Whoever hasn’t sinned should throw the first stone.” Bending down again, he wrote on the ground. Those who heard him went away, one by one, beginning with the elders. Finally, only Jesus and the woman were left in the middle of the crowd.

10 Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Is there no one to condemn you?”

11 She said, “No one, sir.”

Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go, and from now on, don’t sin anymore” (John 8:3-11, Common English Bible).

I never thought about it before tonight. How did the Pharisees and legal experts actually catch the woman caught in the act of adultery? Unless her husband caught her, this story gets pretty creepy in a big hurry.

It is evident that the Pharisees and legal experts were out looking for just this kind of situation. Much like when they asked if it was lawful to pay taxes to the emperor back in Matthew’s Gospel, they wanted to trap Jesus.

If Jesus said, “Yes, go ahead, she sinned a sin that calls for punishment by death. Go ahead, stone her.” They can claim Jesus to be a hypocrite. He says love, mercy, and grace are most important but where are all those things now? Would this woman not deserve the things Jesus promised?

On the other hand, if he says, “No, it really isn’t that big of a deal. Let her live.” Now he isn’t being a good Jew because he is not following the law of Moses. Once again the Pharisees think they have him right where they want him.

In a lot of ways, the Pharisees are a lot like Wyllie Coyote of Saturday morning Bugs Bunny cartoon fame. He always thinks he has the Roadrunner right where he wants him and then something happens and his plan backfires and he ends up falling into his own trap. Undeterred, the coyote goes right back to work on the next plan that will allow him to catch the Roadrunner.

Though far-less funny (our kids have no idea what they are missing by not seeing real Saturday morning cartoons) the Pharisees keep trying to trap Jesus. They also, like Wyllie Coyote, continue to fail at every turn.

Jesus stoops down and begins to write in the sand. No one really knows what he wrote except him and the Pharisees and the legal experts. That has never stopped Bible scholars and commentators from speculating. Some say Jesus started writing their sins in the sand. After writing a few, he says let he who is without sin cast the first stone and then resumes writing their sins in the sand. One by one, the crowd leaves until only he and the woman remain.

The other popular explanation among scholars and commentators is that he wrote, “Where is the man.” A person cannot commit adultery alone. It takes two. And yes, they brought someone to Jesus who had committed a sin so great, it called for one of the worst deaths the human creature has ever devised. That being said, the man had committed the same sin. He would deserve the same punishment. Where was he?

But, as I was reading this story, I started to think, how did they know? Were they out there violating the woman’s constitutional rights protecting her from an illegal search? Of course, I jest but still, short of going into the house searching for the problem, or peeping in the windows (either would be creepy), how would they know? So, perhaps he wrote, “How do you know?” Or maybe, even better, he wrote, “What were you doing in her bedroom?”

Make no mistake, the woman did sin. Jesus never denies that, and, in fact, he actually says as much when he says to her, “Go and sin no more.” Her sin did not excuse the man involved from his sin, nor did it excuse the Pharisees and legal experts from the sins of their hearts.

This story, at least to me, is first and foremost a story about hypocrisy. I find it interesting that the Pharisees were trying for the possibility of calling Jesus a hypocrite only to be called out for the very same thing when their plan falls apart.

I am reminded of the old saying, “Be careful when you are pointing at someone else as there are three fingers pointing back on you.”

Have a blessed day in the Lord.

With Joy and Thankfulness,
Keith

Who Am I

Today’s Journey Through Scripture Readings: 1 Chronicles 16-18; John 7:28-53

16 Then King David went and sat in the Lord’s presence. He asked:

Who am I, Lord God, and of what significance is my family that you have brought me this far? 17 But even this was too small in your eyes, God. You have spoken about the future of your servant’s dynasty and have chosen me as an important person, Lord God.

18 What more can I say to you for honoring your servant? You yourself know your servant. 19 Lord, for your servant’s sake and according to your will, you have done this great thing in order to make all these great things known.

20 Lord, no one can compare to you, no God except you, just as we have heard with our own ears. (1 Chronicles 17:16-20, Common English Bible).

“I was the only person ever to serve as governor of two states as well as in Congress from both. My Indian name was ‘Coloneh’ but they also called me “The Big Drunk.” I was first a Protestant then a Roman Catholic and then a Protestant again. Who Am I?”

“I was one of the twelve disciples. I am only mentioned three times in the Bible, each time I am bringing someone to meet Jesus. One of those three walked, with Jesus, on water. Who am I?”

It’s a game many of us played as children. I even wrote a sermon  using the idea once when I was preaching on Jesus’ question to the disciples, “Who do you say I am?”

I always loved that game when I was a kid. I guess I still do but if I was actually to play the game I think I would make the clues considerably more difficult.

That is the way we often think of the question when we read “Who am I?” But there is another. It is the way Casting Crowns means the term in their popular song by the same title. The song says, in part:

Who am I, that the lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt?
Who am I, that the bright and morning star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart?

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love
And watch me rise again?
Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me?

I think King David would agree with their words. Part of today’s Journey Through Scripture readings is “David’s Song of Praise.” He begins it the same way. “Who am I, Lord God, and of what significance is my family that you have brought me this far?” David asks a really good question.

Who am I that God would care about me? Who am I that God would call me? Who am I that God would bless me in so many ways? Who am I…

I think I hear it more often in a still different way. “Who am I to deserve the destruction of my home in a tornado?” “Who am I to deserve this illness?” “Who am I to have to put up with this ungrateful person?” I can think of about ten parents and a whole bunch of kids in Santa Fe Texas right now that could ask the same question. The list of those who am I questions could go on almost as long as the who am I questions that are part of that kid’s game. Do you think you don’t hear those questions? Try it this way, “Why me?”

Don was a member of one of my churches early in my ministry. I never knew Don when he was well. He died shortly before I moved away. Don told me once, “When I first got sick I used to ask the question, “Why me?” (It could have been who am I to get sick?” Then one day, it dawned on me, “Why not me?”

David asks the question, “Why do you give me more than I deserve?” I think sometimes we ask the question, “Why don’t you give me what I deserve?” Friends, I really don’t think any of us want that.

Have a blessed day in the Lord.

With Joy and Thankfulness,
Keith

Before It Destroys Us

Today’s Journey Through Scripture Readings: 1 Chronicles 13-15; John 7:1-27

25 Then David, along with Israel’s elders and the captains of the thousands, went with rejoicing to bring up the chest containing the Lord’s covenant from Obed-edom’s house. 26 Since God had helped the Levites who were carrying the chest containing the Lord’s covenant, they sacrificed seven bulls and seven rams. 27 David wore a fine-linen robe, as did the singers, all the Levites who were carrying the chest, and Chenaniah, the leader of transportation. David also wore a linen priestly vest. 28 So all Israel brought up the chest containing the Lord’s covenant with shouts of joy, accompanied by the blast of the ram’s horn, by trumpets and cymbals, and playing on harps and lyres. 29 As the chest containing the Lord’s covenant entered David’s City, Michal, Saul’s daughter, looked out the window. When she saw King David leaping and dancing, she lost all respect for him (1 Chronicles 15:25-29, Common English Bible).

16 As the Ark of the Lord came into the city, Saul’s daughter Michal looked out the window. When she saw David jumping and dancing in the presence of the Lord, she hated him.
23 And Saul’s daughter Michal had no children to the day she died. (2 Samuel 6:16, 23 New Century Version).

“…she hated him.” Those are some strong words for one’s wife to say about a husband. Some wives of the Biblical period when marriages were, at least as often as not, arranged for the benefit of the parents rather than the feelings the bride and groom might have had for each other, might actually have something to complain about. Michal loved David, at least for a while (see 1 Samuel 18:20).

Why would she hate David so? I love the Common English Bible. It is my favorite translation but, sometimes I just don’t like the way the translators brought the Greek or Hebrew into English. This lesson is just such an example. Common English says, “She lost all respect for him.” There is a huge gap from hate to lost respect. There are plenty of people for who I have little if any respect. That does not mean I hate those people.

What Michal has going on here is far deeper. Michael had plenty of opportunities to watch two kings in action, first her father and then her husband. She had seen Saul govern and had drawn her conclusions about what kingly behavior looked like. With this incident, David dancing and leaping before the Lord in celebration of the Ark of the Covenant’s return to the seat of the Israelite government.

The writer never says how David was dressed as this scene plays out, but Michal does. “With what honor the king of Israel acted today! You took off your clothes in front of the servant girls of your officers like one who takes off his clothes without shame!” I am not sure if this means David was actually naked or if it means with what he was wearing and how he was acting, he may as well have been naked.

For whatever the reason, Michal now hated her husband. The writer never comes out and directly puts together a relationship between Michal’s hatred and her lack of children. The implication, however, is certainly there.

The conclusion left for us to reach simply says, hate destroys us. If you remember back when we discussed the birth of Samuel, women gained their identity first from their father and then from their husbands. But, everything is tied to the birth of their children, particularly their male children. A woman without a child was nothing.

Hate is a strong emotion. That Michal destroyed herself with her hate is telling. It says to me, we must find a way to overcome any hate in our lives before we destroy ourselves.

Have a blessed day in the Lord.

With Joy and Thankfulness,
Keith

With a Heavy Heart

I had planned that I would continue the Plain Jane sermon series this morning. I had also thought I would teach the children a little about Pentecost during the children’s moments. When I woke up this morning I knew I didn’t have either in me. My mind was full of Jared Black and all the other students of Santa Fe High School along with two substitute teachers who were killed on Friday. This really hit close to home. I served as pastor at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Santa Fe, TX for three years. Though I have been gone for a number of years when something like this happens you quickly realize the depth of your community ties. I baptized Jared while I was there. The news of his death was quite a surprise.

In the end, I ended up talking to the children about confirmation and preaching a sermon of sorts about what I was feeling in the aftermath of the Santa Fe shooting.

The video from this morning’s service is below.

Scripture Readings from Sunday Worship

130 I cry out to you from the depths, Lord
my Lord, listen to my voice!
    Let your ears pay close attention to my request for mercy!
If you kept track of sins, Lord
    my Lord, who would stand a chance?
But forgiveness is with you—
    that’s why you are honored.

I hope, Lord.
My whole being[a] hopes,
    and I wait for God’s promise.
My whole being waits for my Lord—
    more than the night watch waits for morning;
    yes, more than the night watch waits for morning!

Israel, wait for the Lord!
    Because faithful love is with the Lord;
    because great redemption is with our God!
He is the one who will redeem Israel
    from all its sin. (Psalm 130:1-8, Common English Bible)

 

Where could I go to get away from your spirit?
    Where could I go to escape your presence?
If I went up to heaven, you would be there.
    If I went down to the grave, you would be there too!
If I could fly on the wings of dawn,
    stopping to rest only on the far side of the ocean—
10         even there your hand would guide me;
        even there your strong hand would hold me tight!
11 If I said, “The darkness will definitely hide me;
        the light will become night around me,”
12     even then the darkness isn’t too dark for you!
        Nighttime would shine bright as day,
        because darkness is the same as light to you! (Psalm 139:7-12. Common English Bible).

Above all, show sincere love to each other, because love brings about the forgiveness of many sins. (1 Peter 4:8, Common English Bible)

 

Of Breaking Hearts

Today’s Journey Through Scripture Readings: 1 Chron 10-12; John 6:45-71

130 I cry out to you from the depths, Lord
my Lord, listen to my voice!
    Let your ears pay close attention to my request for mercy!
If you kept track of sins, Lord
    my Lord, who would stand a chance?
But forgiveness is with you—
    that’s why you are honored.

I hope, Lord.
My whole being hopes,
    and I wait for God’s promise.
My whole being waits for my Lord—
    more than the night watch waits for morning;
    yes, more than the night watch waits for morning!

Israel, wait for the Lord!
    Because faithful love is with the Lord;
    because great redemption is with our God!
He is the one who will redeem Israel
    from all its sin. (Psalm 130:1-8, Common English Bible)

For you who are working on the “Journey Through Scripture” challenge I have included the scripture readings for today above.  I cannot write on either of those lessons today. Perhaps tomorrow I will get back on track but for today, I have something I need to say and this is the venue where I choose to say it.

This past Friday, as it has in previous such events, my heart broke when I heard about the tragic events at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas. In every occurrence, but especially when there are schools and children and youth involved, my heart breaks. It tears at me. The loss of life is so tragic. The pain these children and also their families experience these last few days, is inconceivable to me. Every time I walk away saying, “We have to find a way to solve this problem. We have to make our schools safe for all our kids.”

There is much I could say about gun laws and what I think we need. I will save that for another time. That is not what this is about.

Yes, my heart broke Friday morning when I learned about the tragedy in Santa Fe. It broke as it has so many times before. But, this one was different. Santa Fe High School is 50 miles from the church I currently serve in Sweeny. That is MUCH closer to home than any of the previous shootings.

Still, for me, there was more. I served as pastor at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Santa Fe from January 2005 through May of 2008. This is an area I know. There are still people there I know.

There was a great deal of relief when Cindy and I learned that our friend Susan, a sign-language teacher at Santa Fe High School was OK, at least physically. I think it will take some time for Susan to be OK emotionally. I am so grateful that Susan was on the opposite end of campus and upstairs from where the tragedy occurred.

While my heart was still heavy, I was feeling better about things. I did still feel a twinge of pain when I read Susan’s Facebook post that said, “Today I lost two colleagues and two students.” I don’t think you can read something like that and not feel the raw emotions behind it.

Then, on Saturday afternoon, I saw the list of the dead. I read the name, Jared Conard Black. The name sounded familiar. I told Cindy that I was pretty sure it was the name of a boy I remembered from our Santa Fe days. The more I thought about it, the more I knew there was something more than just familiar with the name. I pulled out my pastoral record book and looked at the baptismal entries during the time I was pastor at Aldersgate. I found his name. I baptized young Jared Black, along with his brothers and his mother in March of 2006. Jared was five years old.

The memories started flooding back. I remembered a little boy who would run up only to jump back in an effort to get me to grab him. When he jumped back and I missed, he would laugh and laugh. Many times, when he was there I actually would grab him, throw him over my shoulder and carry him around the church building asking people, “What should I do with this?” Jared would start laughing again. When I would put him down, the whole process would start again.

I feel pretty certain Jared wouldn’t have remembered me. He was five and I was nothing more than somebody who showed him a little attention, just as I did with his brother and numerous other kids over past years. I love the children of the church and I consider it such an honor to be their pastor.

Two times in my career I have become keenly aware of what it means to lose a child of the church. I have not lost one of my own children or grandchildren. I pray they outlive me. Parents and grandparents aren’t supposed to bury their kids. Their kids are supposed to bury them. In the coming days, Jared’s family will have that unenviable task, just as Russell’s parents (died in a lightning strike while running into the locker room from the football field when the coaches first got the warning signal. Being a true leader, he stayed back, making sure his teammates all were in ahead of him) had the same experience.

No, I don’t know what they have experienced or are currently experiencing. Still, I know the pain I feel. I know the heavy feeling deep within me. On the advent of adulthood, two very promising young men have had their lives cut short. For Jared and the others killed last Friday, it is a loss of potential in the present age. What might one of them grow up to do? Could there have been a cure for cancer in the future of one student? Could the next Billy Graham have come from their midst? What difference might one of them, upon entering a career in education, have made in the lives of children and youth who follow them. It is potential cut short.

The same could be said for the young shooter. We don’t usually look at the bad guy with an eye toward compassion. Still, in him, there is unrealized potential.

The psalmist writes he both cries out for God and he waits for God. In the current time, when tragedy strikes, we cry out to God. Yet when we recover enough to stop, evaluate and rethink the experience, we quickly come to realize what the psalmist knew and wrote. There is hope in God.

Someone said to me earlier, “We need to get God back in our schools.” That friends is weak theology. We believe God is omnipresent. That means right here, right now, wherever you are reading this, God is there. On Friday, God was at Santa Fe High School. God was there in the custodian that ran down the hall telling approaching kids “Gun, go back.” God was there. The attack happened on the part of the school campus where the fewest number of students was present. How high might the dead and wounded gone had he picked another part of the school to attack? God was there in the school district police officer who placed himself in jeopardy, even getting shot himself, to protect the kids of the school. God was there.

The psalmist understood that. In Psalm 139:7-12 we read these words,

Where could I go to get away from your spirit?
    Where could I go to escape your presence?
If I went up to heaven, you would be there.
    If I went down to the grave, you would be there too!
If I could fly on the wings of dawn,
    stopping to rest only on the far side of the ocean—
10         even there your hand would guide me;
        even there your strong hand would hold me tight!
11 If I said, “The darkness will definitely hide me;
        the light will become night around me,”
12     even then the darkness isn’t too dark for you!
        Nighttime would shine bright as day,
        because darkness is the same as light to you! (Psalm 139: 7-12, CEB)

The psalmist knew of God’s omnipresence. The psalmist knew God was there. We should know the same. During events like the Santa Fe shooting, we tend to want to blame God. The truth is, GOD, DID NOT DO THIS! Evil is never part of God’s will. Evil happens because of what is in the hearts of people like us. People like the person who walks into a classroom full of students pulls out a gun and starts shooting. That is free will. That is a human choice. It is a human choice that contradicts the will of God. (For more see The Will of God, by Leslie Weatherhead).

God was there on Friday. God is with the families of the victims right now. God will continue to be with the victim’s families and friends in the days and weeks to come. And, let there be no doubt, now or ever, where God is, there is always a reason for hope.

I would ask you to please pray for Santa Fe. I have talked with a few people I know who have little to do with the school. They too are experiencing pain. Pray for the students of Santa Fe Independent School District and particularly Santa Fe High School that they will seek comfort from the one who offers the best comfort and the best hope. Pray as well for the families of the victims. They will have to deal with this most.

I heard one family member of a victim say on the late local news, “If I could sit down across the table from him (the shooter), I don’t know if I would bless him or attack him. I would hope I would bless him but I know that even if I were successful, it would be through clenched teeth.” That is a start.

Please also pray for the shooter and his family. Yes, there is anger. But we all must realize this was not a decision the shooter’s family made for him. It was his and his alone. We need to pray that he will come to repent his actions of May 18.

Most of all, pray that each of these will allow themselves to accept the comfort God offers to each of us in times of tragedy and difficulty. God is with them and where God is, there is always hope.

I pray God’s blessings on you this day.

With a Thankful Heart,
Keith
