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, Preetha Mathews

Waiting. A protracted longing for something that seems like it’s never going to happen. This is my own definition. Waiting can be one of the most agonizing things in the human experience. God knew it would be. That’s why one of the fruits of the spirit is “patience.” And if we’re honest, it’s a fruit that seems to be bitterly painful. You may be waiting for a loved one to be healed, to be accepted to a college, to have a child or to see your marriage restored. Whatever the scenario, waiting isn’t enjoyable, but is about trusting our Abba Father even while you feel like you are in some kind of holding pattern. It’s the endurance of waiting that tests your resolve.  Waiting isn’t a cruel game he taunts us with, he is developing your “spiritual skin” to be toughened up –to trust him, despite what you see. Just like you, I too am waiting. Not always in an angelic state of patience, I might add. I’ve wrestled with God, I’ve cried, but in the end I choose to give him thanks and praise him in the waiting. It is my greatest weapon against the enemy.
