Just finished listening to Orthodoxy by G. K. Chesterton

June 9, 2018

I finished listening to Orthodoxy by G. K. Chesterton, narrated by John Lee on my Audible app.

Enjoyed it, give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Found it thoughtful and truthful. Can see why it is a Christian Classic. Orthodoxy (1908) is a book by G. K. Chesterton that has become a classic of Christian apologetics. Chesterton considered this book a companion to his other work, Heretics, writing it expressly in response to G.S. Street’s criticism of the earlier work, “that he was not going to bother about his theology until I had really stated mine”. In the book’s preface Chesterton states the purpose is to “attempt an explanation, not of whether the Christian faith can be believed, but of how he personally has come to believe it.” (Wikipedia)

Don’t Just Ask, Just Ask

June 9, 2018

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
There are many truths that Jesus has revealed to me. Some easier to understand than others. I think that’s because, some seem natural to the real me, while others contradict with worldly me. But what is the real me; and how and why does it contradict with worldly me. I believe this truth. There is the me God created me to be. And there is the me that the world under the sun has influenced me to be. The questions I asked of God, and the questions I asked of others reflects which me is asking.

A devotion or two…
Then What’s Next To Do?

Everyone who asks receives…
Luke 11:10

The word ask actually means “beg.” Some people are poor enough to be interested in their poverty, and some of us are poor enough spiritually to show our interest. Yet we will never receive if we ask with a certain result in mind, because we are asking out of our lust, not out of our poverty. A pauper does not ask out of any reason other than the completely hopeless and painful condition of his poverty. He is not ashamed to beg— blessed are the paupers in spirit (see Matthew 5:3).

What do you want me to do for you?”
Mark 10:51a

When a blind beggar cries out to Jesus for mercy, Jesus decides to ask the man what he wants. Isn’t it obvious? A blind beggar obviously needs to be healed! But Jesus respects the man by not assuming, but instead asking an empowering question that allows for the one in need to express his desire. Just this one observation of Jesus’s leadership speaks volumes to how we should engage with those we serve.

A prayer…
Dear God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior, help me become better at asking questions that lead people to make important changes in their lives and in the world. Empower me to live a life that causes others to ask the right kinds of questions about your Lordship, the brokenness in this world, and our role to join you in making it better. Today, I choose to not forfeit my soul for temporary things but to invest in your kingdom with my whole self. Amen.
