Reflections

Reflection, Corey Johnson

“What’s in it for me?” This is a question we answer every day as it’s in our nature to look out for our self-interest, especially when we are inconvenienced by demands. The culture may exhibit this pattern of thinking, but as Christ-followers, we are called to a different way of being. It is the way of love that impels us to serve more, stay longer and endure more than we intended. It is going the extra mile and putting the interest of others ahead of ours (Philippians 2:4).

Jesus calls us to conduct our lives this way as we negotiate personal or business deals, work in a challenging place of employment, or handle the difficulties of relationships. Love demands that we look out for the interest of others. That’s what Jesus did for us on the cross, and the Holy Spirit has empowered us to do the same for others. Surprisingly, it is through these acts of humility that we experience a fulfilled, abundant life.

Reflection, Jack Crabtree

What should a pastor do when he wants to skip church? Honest confession---there are some Tuesday nights when I don’t want to be at the SRC prayer service. But I have to go---I’m the leader in Syosset. Some weeks I’m dragging myself to the meeting apparently forgetting how vital prayer is to not only the mission of the church, but to my personal walk with Jesus. But amazing changes happen when I get there. I arrive tired and distracted, but I drive home feeling cleansed and refreshed like I spent $100 at a spa. It’s not just me. Others tell me they experience a significant re-fueling. Praying with other people helps me keep my focus on God and deepens my awareness of how the Holy Spirit is working in my life. Prayer attacks my self-centered attitudes and widens my love for God and my brothers and sisters in Christ. I’m glad I have to be there every week. God gives me the spiritual “spa treatment” I need.
