Reflections

Reflection, Jeff Benz

“Everyone who comes to me and hears these words of mine and obeys them is like a man who built his house on a rock.” Each of the two places where we find this illustration is the conclusion of a sermon. If you look into Matthew 5-7 and Luke 6:20-49, you can read what “these words” are, which, if we obey, will equip us to withstand life’s storms. Given the importance, we should read them carefully and often, don’t you think? Forgive. Don’t judge. Love your enemy. Give when asked. Don’t be anxious. Interestingly, there is not an apparent natural connection between doing these things and weathering hardship. Unlike, say, “put aside money in a good investment account” or “be careful whom you marry.” So obeying them requires some faith. Jesus’ analogy suggests consistent work for the sake of long-term security in the face of inevitable calamity.

Reflection, Kevin Mahaffy

Today is a great day of celebration at SRC as several people are being baptized at our campuses. The act of baptism is an outward picture of an inward reality. Just as Jesus died, was buried, and was raised to new life, the physical act of going under the water and then coming up again, symbolizes that the person has chosen to die to their old life of sin, and decided to follow Jesus, thus being raised up in to new life with Him (2 Corinthians 5:17). Baptism also symbolizes the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus, through which the Bible teaches that we have been made clean and declared righteous before God. When someone is baptized they are making a public declaration that they have placed their hope in Jesus, and that they desire to live to please God. Historically, baptism was viewed as the act through which someone publicly identified as a member of God’s family, the Church. It is done in public as a way of declaring before family, friends, and even strangers, what God has done and is doing in a person’s life.
