Peace, wealth, and prosperity… is this your dream? Is this what Jesus promises? While Jesus ultimately came to bring eternal peace, it seems like conflict and controversy followed him almost everywhere he went. Wealth was something he definitely lacked. Someone with prosperity doesn’t usually get charged in an illegal trial and then sentenced to death in the most tortuous and painful way available. And yet, this is the life of Christ, and the life he invites his disciples towards: it’s a life of cross-carrying because we live with a different type of victory plan.

Special Guest: Roy Baldwin

Scripture: Deuteronomy 6:4-9 (NLT)

“Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

What's the Plan

How often have you thought, “Today I will do this and tomorrow I will do that.” Or, “This time next year I will have liked to have accomplished this.”

We all make plans and some of us have a bucket list. There is nothing wrong with making plans. We all want to be responsible. However, when our plans trump Gods plans that’s when we get into trouble. Some of us hold onto our agendas so tightly that when the Spirit of God does want to break in we are either so tuned out to His whisper or we deny Him flat out. James strongly encourages us that the brevity of my life demands humility.  If one pauses for a moment in our lightening fast culture and really reflects on our human condition we all know that we are fragile and there is so much our of our control. Yet we prop our selves and our hopes up often with godless arrogance. We all need to be humble before our Creator because there are limitations on our lives (James 4:12-13 ). We are a mist, a vapor that quickly vanishes, that’s the reality of our condition – by design.
