A Bomb in a Basket

Sometimes we might be tempted to look at the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ and at those who preach the Son of God, crucified, buried, rejected and resurrected, and to scratch our head and wonder; ‘Is that it?’

God was about to change the world forever, through the service of a converted persecutor of the church;Saul of Tarsus. In Acts chapter 9 Pauls ministry gets off to an ignoble start as he is bundled into a basket and lowered down a city wall at night! Is this the man that will turn the western world upside down? Where is the power in that? The ‘dynamite’ of God lay not in who Paul was but in what he had found in Jesus Christ! This was a Bomb in a Basket. Taken from :

When I Came to You

As a job application it was destined to leave the apostle Paul well off of the interview short-list, yet chapter 2 opens with a self appraisal which leaves the reader in no doubt as to Pauls short comings. He wasn’t big on wisdom, speaking wasn’t his strong point, he lacked self confidence and felt his weakness. Despite all of this the mission at Corinth had been a rip roaring success! It always had been the case that when God chose a man suitable for His service He had rejected anyone too proud to acquiesce to His omnipotence. God always sought a servant willing to become a channel clean enough, through which blessing might flow to others; and that blessing was GREAT!

The Last Lecture – Just added

At a time in Western Christianity when it would appear that many are failing to appreciate the God given responsibility to both receive the truth from a previous generation and the responibility to preserve it and then pass it on to the next generation, Robert Revie brings a timely encouragement to remain faithful and consistent in the basics of the Christian faith and to see our God given place as part of a corporate body of Christ with both the privileges and the responsibilities it brings. It is time to ‘man up’ and to step up to the mark and take our place among Gods people. Capitalism, humanism and materialism have taught a generation to become self centred consumers, picking buffet style from the menu of choice. Responsibility is a conveniently forgotten concept. We go where it suits us and we drop what doesn’t. Such attitudes, as 2 Timothy chapter 2 reveals did not build Christs Church and such attitudes are not consistent in sustaining it. God will hold us accountable for faithfulness and for failure. Despite Paul having much to discourage him, in the inconsistencies of others, noted and named in the Word of God, yet he sees encouragement from the faithfulness of Timothy, to whom he passes on the baton of the faith, in this most poignant of Pauls ‘last lecture.’
