Stand Your Ground

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

(Ephesians 6:13)

 

All military commanders and planners spend a lot of time determining what “ground” they will defend.  In war, we stake the American flag and will defend that ground with our lives.  In marriage, whether military or civilian, Mike and I tend to view each couple as having either a red flag, yellow flag, or a green flag staked on their marriage ground.  What color is the flag staked in your ground?

Upholding Marriage

Just days after the U.S. Supreme Court attempted to create a new category of so-called “rights” in the U.S. Constitution and in advance of Independence Day, a study, conducted by the Newseum Institute’s First Amendment Center in partnership with USA Today, found that that one-third of Americans can’t name any of the rights that the First Amendment guarantees.  According to a USA Today story, less than two-thirds of survey respondents – 57% vs. 68% a year ago -- were able to cite freedom of speech as one protected by the amendment. Only 19% were able to cite the freedom of religion, down from 29%.

It is rare to see a ministry serve at the length Fellowship of Christian Athletes has within our community, state, nation, and world.  They have been committed to coaches and students around the globe for more than 60 years, and they aren’t stopping. Don McClanen, founder and creator of FCA, said these words in May of 1954, while projecting his idea before a board: “For some time, I have had the idea of forming an organization of athletes and coaches in this hero-worshiping nation of ours.  If athletes can endorse shaving cream, razor blades, and cigarettes, surely they can endorse the Lord, too.  So my idea is to form an organization that would project you as Christian men before the youth and athletes of our nation.”

Lord, Make Me an Instrument of Thy Peace

Something happened too terrible to put into words.  What can we do as Christians to come to peace with such a thing and help others do the same? So often we witness tragic losses over which we had no control to stop and no power to rectify. The list is long and covers the breadth of history from the Holocaust to the recent shootings in a Church in South Carolina.

Do You Know the Strength of Your Savior?

Romans 12:2:“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

 

About a month ago, I was about to go for a walk when one of those sudden summertime thunderstorms rolled in.  You know the drill here in the Deep South, sudden strong winds, lightning, sideways rain and then, just as suddenly, it’s over.  As I headed out for my walk after this five minute blast, I discovered in that short amount of time that large trees were snapped, trash cans were tossed about and the awning from our neighborhood tennis courts was ripped to shreds and thrown across the park. I started thinking, as I often do with intense thunderstorms, that God’s strength is pretty amazing…even when it’s in the form of destruction. I stand in awe at how quickly and mightily He can move.

With All Your Mind

Oxford University Professor Brian Leftow once wrote, “I am a philosopher because I am a Christian. To many intellectuals, this probably sounds like saying that I am a dog because I am a cat.” Indeed. And even those of us who don’t live amongst “intellectuals” of the sort Leftow had in mind can presumably agree: in this day and age, many people simply take it for granted that the life of faith and the life of the mind are intrinsically opposed. This assumption is both harmful and demonstrably false.

Overcoming Hurt

It’s not unusual for others to take advantage of us—our talents and abilities, ideas, willingness to work—to ease their own load or make them look better. At first, we may enjoy the attention, and often pride factors in because we feel important or necessary. But it doesn’t take long to realize the relationship is more about usury than friendship, and when the person abandons us for a more useful or popular friend or makes us look foolish, the hurt we feel is real and sometimes overwhelming.

Starting Over, After Collapse

Once upon a time a four-year-old boy sat in a kitchen doorway stacking columns of blocks to make an imaginary building. His dad was a carpenter and brought home dozens of board scraps. He called them blocks.
