From Jim’s Heart for Men…Your Personal Passion Fuels Your Discipline

When we consider the observation of “opposites” (as we did in our previous post) how likely would it be to describe any of the world-changers throughout history as lackadaisical or unemotional. No, we ascribe the opposite qualities to those of influence – purposeful, brave, or driven. Where, we might wonder, do people of influence get their enthusiasm and determination?

One man of major-league influence was the apostle Paul. One of the reasons for Paul’s great impact on others was that he was an impassioned and disciplined man. Where did Paul get his drive? Was it because of his strict religious training as a Pharisee? Was it due to what some people call a type A personality?

These elements may have contributed to Paul’s drive, but the real reason for Paul’s discipline was the focus of his life. Paul passionately and persistently focused on the “crown that will last forever” (1 Corinthians 9:25). Many who compete at any level in any sports event or business venture, have their earthly reasons for their high levels of motivation—an earthly prize, a “crown that will not last.” But Paul’s motivation was Jesus Christ—an eternal prize. And, that focus made all the difference!

Paul wanted to pursue the knowledge of Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:10). Paul wanted to preach the message of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 9:16). And Paul was willing to pay any price and do whatever it took to stay in the Christian race for Jesus Christ. As I said, Jesus Christ was the complete focus of Paul’s life. And the more Jesus Christ influenced Paul, the more Paul influenced others.

Paul’s motivation to please Jesus Christ and to obtain an eternal prize were chief contributors to his life of discipline. These were his goals and his passion. And friend, like Paul, you and I have certain peo­ple or things who are driving our life. So I ask you, What is motivating you these days? What is getting you up early every morning and keep­ing you up late at night? What is consuming the hours and days of your life? Is it a career? Is it a desire for success? Is it the goal of financial inde­pendence? Is it a dream of future happiness or retirement?

These desires in and of themselves may not be wrong or evil. But what happens when you reach any of these physical or financial goals, these “earthly” prizes? Will you be satisfied? Maybe. But also maybe not. My friend, here’s the hard question: Are you willing to take a chance and expend your life and energies on these kinds of pursuits that, in the end, might not fulfill your deepest longings?

Paul was a man who had it all. He had the right background, the right job, and was the best at what he did. He was making excellent progress toward the top of his “profession.” But after he became a Christian, Paul saw his accomplishments and goals in a different light. So he gave up all his earthly and personal pursuits for something better—far better! He gave all of it up for a life of following hard after Jesus Christ. Hear the heart of Paul as he searches for the words to describe for us the new focus of his life:

Whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ (Philip­pians 3:7-8).

My friend, discipline is a good and profitable thing. You will never get anywhere without it. You will never be a man of influence on any level without discipline. But make sure your discipline has the right focus, the right direction. Like Paul, make sure your goal is, first and foremost, Jesus Christ. Then all else will fall into place!

A Verse to Recall:

“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righ­teousness and all these things [the necessities of life] shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33

Learning from Opposites

We can learn even more about kindness when we look at its opposites. For instance one of the opposites of showing kindness is arguing. Certain behaviors signal to us that we are not walking by the Spirit or prac­ticing God’s kindness, and one of those flashing red lights is arguing. In 2 Timothy 2:24, Paul says that the Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all. Therefore, when you or I find ourselves striving or quarreling, arguing or quibbling, we can be sure that this behavior “is not that which comes down from above” (James 3:15), but is instead coming from our own flesh.

Galatians 5:20 even lists strife, disputing, and dissension among the evil deeds of the flesh.

Imagine the home… the office… or the church without any arguing! And imagine the same energy that contention, strife, and arguing consume channeled toward kindness instead. Exactly what would you and I have to do to help make that happen? Here’s a short list.

  • Love others more than ourselves.
  • Care for the comfort and welfare of others more than our own.
  • Consider others more important than ourselves (Philippians 2:3).
  • Forego quarreling.

Matthew 11:28-30 helps us gain even greater insight into kindness from another pair of opposites. Speaking words of comfort to His followers, Jesus issues a gentle invitation: “Come unto Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy [that is, kind], and My load is light.”

It’s helpful for us to under­stand that a yoke was a wooden frame placed upon a person’s shoulders that was meant to make his load easier to carry. However, if the load was unequally distributed or simply too heavy, that yoke would begin to chafe and rub and wear the person down. Here Jesus is contrasting His yoke and the burden He asks His followers to bear with the yoke of trying to keep all of the rules laid upon the Jews by Israel’s teachers, and He says that His yoke is “easy”— which is the same word as “kind.” In fact, one scholar translates the verse “My yoke is kindly.”

I have to admit that the vividness of this mental image caused me to ask some hard questions about my relation­ships with others—and maybe you would like to do the same. For instance, what is it like to be yoked with me at home, on a committee, in a project, or in a ministry? Am I an asset to those around me, a person who doesn’t chafe? Am I easy to be with and kind, a person who makes it easier for other people to bear their burdens?

Or am I an additional burden which others must bear, causing their yoke to chafe and rub, making it more difficult for them to pull their weight because they are yoked to a harsh, quar­relsome, wearisome woman? Do my manner and lack of kindness chafe, rub, and wear others down? Kindness means making life easier for others—not harder—just as Jesus makes your life and mine easier.

A Prayer to Pray:

Lord, I want to live like one who is truly transformed. I want to be a joy, not a burden, to those I am yoked to. I want to be a woman who shines with kindness, authenticity, integrity, and a deep understanding of Your truth.

Things to Do Today to Walk in Kindness

While peace is one of the fruits of the Spirit that we crave for ourselves—patience, kindness, and goodness—has to do with our treatment of others. The order of this listing implies that kindness is the next step we are to take after we have practiced patience when wronged. I know my natural response when someone has hurt me is to react and decide, “Well, you’re off my list! I don’t have to put up with that kind of treatment! I’ll just withhold my love from you.” But moments like these are precisely when you and I need to have spiritual victory and be kind instead. This supernatural act requires God, the Holy Spirit, filling us with His kindness.

Right now I want to challenge you to choose your number one problem person and take him or her before the Lord in prayer. I also want you to take before God your pain, your harsh thoughts, your temptations to respond in an unchristian manner, and your confessions of times when you’ve given in to those thoughts or tempta­tions. Acknowledge your unkindness as well as any times when you withheld kindness.

Then go a step further and ask God to help you show His kindness to the very person who hurt you, who caused your pain, who is causing you to suffer, and who is making your life miserable. While you are suffering long and waiting patiently under ill-treatment, be kind. For love suffers patiently and is kind (1 Corin­thians 13:4).

A friend once gave me a little calendar so that each day I can flip a page over and read an encouraging statement. Well, one day I a message about kind­ness struck me as I read, “Kindness is the ability to love people more than they deserve.” Can we do that, dear friend? God says we can—and His Spirit helps us. So…

Pray for your enemies, those people who mistreat and use you (Luke 6:28). You will find you cannot hate a person you are praying for. You also can’t neglect that person. Try it! You’ll find these statements to be true because prayer and hatred don’t go together. Neither do prayer and neglect.

Spend time with God so that you may own up to any ill will you have toward an individual or group of people.

Study Jesus’ life for more examples of kindness and then follow in His steps. Keep a journal of those instances of His kindness as you discover them, noting the circumstances surrounding His graciousness.

Ask for God’s help in demonstrating the Spirit’s kindness to those people. Ask God to help you become known more as a com­forter and less as a confronter. Pray for God to fill your heart with His compassion as you walk each day and every step along the way with Him.

A Prayer to Pray:

Jesus, You were so humble and willing to serve. I want to follow your example of kindness. Keep me from being caught up in wanting to be in charge of everything. Help me look for places to serve and uplift others.

Panic or Pressure

Perhaps more prevalent in our lives than frightening reasons to panic are sources of pressure. We never seem to have enough time—pressure! We want to do well as a spouse and a parent—pressure! We are called to be good stewards of finances and effective managers of a home—pressure! Jobs, friendships, responsibilities to aging parents, health problems, and even service at church—all of these bring on pressure and too easily squeeze out the peace of God.

But, we can thank the Lord that as we live in the whirlwind of life and the flurry of daily demands, His peace is avail­able to us. We don’t have to live in a frazzled fashion— breathless, anxious, worried, fretful, and rushed. But how?

Do you remember when Jesus went to the home of Mary and Martha? Martha welcomed Him (and probably His twelve hungry disciples) in for dinner, but she “was distracted with all her preparations” (Luke 10:40) and soon let the mounting pressure she felt to fix the meal rob her of any peace—a fact that became quite obvious.

First, Martha’s manner was a dead give-away. Her behavior could be described as cumbered, distracted, wor­ried, and busy. She tensely scurried about, bustling and bothered, fretting and fuming, a picture of anxiety in motion. She was literally—and breathlessly—caught up in the whirlwind of life. The cook herself was in a stew, whip­ping herself up into a froth. Finally, no longer able to handle the pressure, she “burst in” (verse 40, Phillips) with a few words for Jesus!

That’s when Martha’s mouth revealed her lack of peace. “Lord, do You not care…?” she asked the Master accusingly (verse 40). Pointing the finger of blame at Mary, Martha next said, “She has left me to do all the serving alone.” The bossy big sister then dared to tell the Lord what to do: “Tell her to help me.” Yes, besides stirring up a meal in the kitchen, Martha certainly stirred up quite a commotion in the living room with her verbal outburst!

Martha’s confusion about her mission also robbed her of peace. She was right to be serving Jesus, but she mistakenly thought that serving was her primary mission. Jesus saw the confused priorities of this well-intentioned woman and commented, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and both­ered about so many things” (verse 41). In her efforts to serve God, Martha failed to remember that “man’s chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” (Westminster Catechism, c.1675)

Martha was preoccupied with details and secondary concerns. Her ser­vice to Jesus had degenerated into mere busywork that was removed from any devotion to Him. And this focus on ser­vice rather than on the One she was serving prompted Jesus to instruct her by pointing out that her sister Mary had chosen “the good part” (verse 42) by sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening to His Word, and abiding in His presence. (Oh, how many times I myself have acted like Martha!)

Like her sister, Mary’s mission was also to serve, but she also understood the more important priority of worship. Wanting her relationship with Jesus to be the highest pri­ority of her life, Mary made choices which reflected that desire. She knew when to quit serving… and start sitting.

Clearly, Mary’s mindset was pleasing to the Lord. As Jesus said, Mary had “chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her” (verse 42). She had her mind set on things above, not on earthly things (Colossians 3:2). She was focused on the eternal, not the temporal (2 Corinthians 4:18).

I know Mary is definitely a model I need for my hurri­cane lifestyle and, I’m guessing, a model you need, too! And so I try to remember this picture of Mary sitting… resting… worshiping… at peace…

Questions to Consider:

Take closer look at your own manner, mouth, mission, and mindset. What would an outside observer see in you right now—a Martha or a Mary? Are you in turmoil, or are you trusting and at peace? Are you running around in circles, or are you resting in the Lord? Are your words revealing a sense of panic and pressure? Are your actions reflecting the priorities God would have you set? Is your relationship with Him first, or are you too busy to sit at His feet and enjoy His presence?

If the cry of your heart is to exchange the clutter and chaos of everyday life for a simple focus on what really matters, pick up a copy of A Woman’s High Calling by Elizabeth George.

A Sacrifice of Trust

In order to fully enjoy God’s peace, we have to actively trust Him. Jesus stated as a fact, “In the world you have tribulation” (John 16:33). But as Christians who abide in Christ there is peace (even in tribulation!) as we rest in God’s presence and trust in His promises. When you and I walk by the Spirit, our life is characterized not by fretting, panic, and anxiety, but by the quiet peace that comes with trusting God. In the midst of life’s most difficult circumstances, the Spirit’s peace will guard our hearts and our minds (Philip­pians 4:7), serving as a sentinel over our thoughts and emo­tions… despite life’s turbulence.

We heard of offering up a sacrifice of praise to the Lord in times of struggle(Hebrews 13:15). But also, I think of peace as a “sacrifice of trust.” And you and I make the sacrifice of trust when we face the painful and distressing realities of our life and then choose to trust God instead of panicking or falling apart. When circumstances in my life might tempt me to panic, feel terrified, become a nervous wreck, or be filled with dread, I can choose either to give in to those feelings or to trust in God and present myself to Him to be filled with His peace. And I must make this conscious choice each and every day whenever I see storm clouds looming ahead, whenever life’s confusions, bewilderments, and perplexities threaten to overwhelm.

We make the sacrifice of trust and experience God’s peace…

  • when we choose not to panic… but to rest in God’s presence,
  • when we release our terror… and trust in God’s wisdom and ways,
  • when we reject our nervousness… and remember that God is in control,
  • and when we ignore our dread… and instead accept God’s dealings.

You see, I can either trust Almighty God or succumb to the emotions of the flesh. Choosing to trust God—making the sacrifice of trust—causes me to experi­ence His peace… even in the midst of tremendous uproar.

A Prayer to Pray:

God, You are my reason for living, my salvation, my comfort, my provider, my love. I choose today to follow You every step of the way. When the way gets hard and I falter, encourage me and give the me faith to trust You.

In Elizabeth George’s book, Finding God’s Path Through Your Trials, you will find more encouragement to seek His help for every difficulty you face.

Experiencing God’s Peace

“The fruit of the Spirit is…peace.” Galatians 5:22

What exactly is this peace that God’s Spirit gives? Many people think of peace as the absence of problems, as the feeling that is experienced when all is well. But the peace of the Lord is not related to circumstances at all. In fact, God’s peace comes to us and endures… regardless of life’s circumstances.

Our daughter Courtney and her husband Paul were the reason we moved to Hawaii. We visited the island, where they were stationed with the Navy, several times before moving there ourselves. On one trip, the island of Kuai had recently experienced the ravages of a hurricane. As Jim and I drove around the island, we noticed not only the remaining evidence of destruction, but also the huge warning sirens on every beach and in every town. Having just been through a 6.7 earthquake in Southern California, we could well imagine something of the fear the islanders must have felt as those sirens wailed on that fateful September day.

But we could also imagine the peace they must have felt when those same devices finally sounded the all-clear signal. But, can you imagine having perfect peace regardless of whether  the sirens are signaling a storm or whether the hurricane is actually roaring around you? That, my friend, is the kind of peace God makes available to you and me for the storms of life. Notice these truths about this peace that comes from God.

  • Our peace has nothing to do with our circumstances, and everything to do with knowing we have a right relationship with God.
  •  Our peace has nothing to do with daily challenges or crises, and everything to do with knowing that our times are in God’s hands.
  •  Our peace has nothing to do with the conditions of our life, and everything to do with knowing that God is all-sufficient.
  •  Our peace is an inward repose and serenity of soul that indicates a heart at rest—regardless of our cir­cumstances—as we place complete confidence in God minute by minute.

True spiritual peace comes with knowing that our heav­enly Father is continually with us—and indeed He is! God is omnipresent and therefore fully aware of every detail of our life—at every moment and in every place. He knows our needs—at all times and in every situation.

Psalm 139:7-12 teaches that we can never be anyplace—from the heights of heaven to the depths of the sea—where God is not present with us and available to us. Key to our peace, then, is not the absence of conflict, but the presence of God, no matter what the conflict.6 I have to tell you that just writing about God’s personal and continuous presence is bringing a fresh sense of peace to my soul right this minute!

Peace also comes with acknowledging that God will supply our every need as well as acknowledging His con­stant presence. For instance, when Paul asked Jesus to remove the thorn in his flesh and Jesus said no, the apostle Paul learned the truth of Jesus’ statement:

“My grace is suf­ficient for you” (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Paul learned for him­self the truth he wrote in Philippians 4:19—”God [will] supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus”—and, in 2 Corinthians 9:8, that “God is able to make all grace abound to you, that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.”

Do you realize what these promises mean to you and me? They mean that we will never have a real need that God is not able to meet. What a reason for peace that truth is!

A Prayer to Pray:

Jesus, I praise You! You’ve given me many astounding gifts and provided for and watched over me in countless ways. You are ever-present and everlasting. And You love me. Amazing. Amen

The Supreme Model of Joy

Jesus Himself gives us the supreme model of joy in the midst of life’s dark pain. There was probably no greater source of pain in the ancient world than crucifixion on a Roman cross, but we read in Hebrews 12:2 that Jesus, “for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame.” Knowing that His suffering would result in great joy, Jesus looked toward His future with the Father as He endured the excruciating pain of death on the cross.

As one Bible commentator notes, “Despite the misunderstanding, the rejection, the hatred, the pain He endured from men while incarnate among them, the Lord never lost His joy in the relationship He had with His Father. And that joy He gives to each of His followers.” The same wondrous joy that Jesus experienced in His darkest hours is yours and mine today. Won’t you look to God for that joy? Let it help you endure your dark and pain-filled days.

Now, my friend, what can you and I do to cultivate this fruit of joy in the Lord in our daily walk with God?

Offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually—even when you don’t feel like it (Hebrews 13:15). Through the power of the Holy Spirit, this act of thanksgiving transforms our pain into praise.

“Consider it all joy… when you encounter various trials,” writes James (1:2). As I said earlier, let the very hindrances to joy become the soil out of which joy blossoms! That happens when we let life’s hard times drive us nearer to the Lord, the only Source of gen­uine joy and real hope.

Give thanks in everything (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Whatever is happening—good or bad—give thanks to God for His sovereignty, His perfect timing, His per­fect plan, and His unconditional love.

Bless the Lord at all times (Psalm 34:1). Offer unceas­ingly the sacrifice of praise (Hebrews 13:15). The Spirit can—and will—use your praise to touch you with God’s joy.

Focus on the reality of God’s promises. Every time you open your Bible, read with a marker in hand and look for powerful promises that can change your out­look to one of joy. Go a step further and memorize those verses you like best and meditate on them.

Look up. Shift your eyes and your hopes away from your suffering and focus instead on the splendor of God (Psalm 121:1-2).

Obey God’s command to be joyful always (1 Thessa­lonians 5:16). As author Jerry Bridges notes, “We are not to sit around waiting for our circumstances to make us joyful. We are commanded to be joyful always… we should continually be growing in joy.”

Go to God to be filled with His joy whenever you need it.

A Prayer to Pray:

Father, my heart overflows with the love and blessings You’ve given me. Even in the midst of my trials and sorrow I can be joyful in my heart because I know You are in charge. Amen.

Letting God Work

Do you like change? Some people say that they do; some people quickly respond that they don’t. I’d bet that most people don’t welcome a change that challenges their comfort zone. But, challenging those comfort zones is exactly what God does to grow us.

One of my comfort zones that was laid bare before God was my general tendency to be meticulous and careful as a person and as a time manager. You might say I was a “type A” personality. I’ve always had my schedule and my little routines so efficiently that you could set a clock by them. But God had a few new things He wanted to teach me. So He began working on my attitude and my time management. How did He do this? By a trial, a test: He sent my family to the mission field. To Singapore, to be exact!

Little did I know when we landed in Singapore that my life was on the brink of major change. God wanted to move me toward His perfection (rather than perfectionism), which required trans­planting me to an entirely different culture… a culture where we did not have a car!  Can you imagine the trauma that was for someone who had lived in Los Angeles County where we basically lived in our cars between activities?

What having no car meant was hours spent every day standing on corners waiting for buses that were always late or never came at all. I also stood at corners waving for taxis that wouldn’t pull over because they were usually full. I stood in the rain with no transportation and no phone. My perfect little routines I had so carefully developed over the decades was completely knocked out. I hardly felt productive and efficient!

How did I respond to this new chal­lenge and the trials associated with my situation? Not initially with grace, I can assure you! But, there in my time of “trial” the Lord taught me — I learned to be flexible. I grew in patience as I became more and more accustomed to standing and waiting. A greater trust in God developed as I began to sur­render—to yield—to His wisdom and purpose in my new living style.

I grew to rest in the Lord, to hand more and more of the undone things in my schedule to Him, to relinquish more and more things in my precious routine, to let Him have His perfect work in me. I experience a variety of tailor-made trials, a variety of ways of living, and a variety of ways of managing. I learned that millions of women live in a way I’d never experienced.

It’s truly amazing to notice how God breaks us out of what we are comfortable with and moves us beyond our current state. He uses trials and tests to help us face and overcome challenges so we can do even greater feats for Him. Yes, these lessons don’t come easily or cheaply. They develop and require fortitude, trust in God, and endurance until growth takes place. Then we have a better understanding of God’s power and how to use it and count on it in future trials.

A Verse to Recall:

“He who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

Philippians 1:6

In her book Experiencing God’s Peace, Elizabeth George guides you through the book of Philippians and helps you discover God’s perfect and lasting peace in every area of your life – no matter how turbulent.

Finding Strength in Weakness

In addition to the teachings of James 1:2-4, there is another scripture I draw upon every time I’m faced with a trial. No matter what is happening to me, what I am up against, what is breaking my heart, or what I am suffering, I turn to the strength offered and assured in 2 Corinthians 12:9. These words of promise are spoken by Christ Himself: “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

Wow! Who doesn’t need this kind of assurance in a trial? For more than 2,000 years this pledge from God has helped Chris­tians endure everything life and the world can throw at them. The apostle Paul is a great example.

Paul was God’s servant, but the believers in Corinth were ques­tioning his sincerity and authenticity as an apostle. Therefore Paul wrote to defend and prove himself to his opponents. In doing so, he basically said, “Well, there is one really big thing I could brag about if I needed to.” Then Paul described a vision he was allowed to see and hear when he was miraculously “caught up to heaven” (2 Corinthians 12:2).

Paul’s glimpse of heaven was indeed glorious, but Paul explains that because he could have been exalted by others and filled with personal pride due to this supernatural experience, “a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure” (verse 7).

We don’t know exactly what Paul’s thorn in the flesh was, but it was probably painful or frustrating. And how did Paul handle this? He did what we would have done—he prayed. He asked God three times to take away the exasperating problem. But God’s way of answering Paul’s prayers was not by removing the pres­sure. Instead, God increased Paul’s strength to bear it!

And how did Paul’s story of pain and suffering end? He spells out how the Lord spoke words of encouragement to him so he could stay in his hardship and keep on serving Christ and His followers. Paul reports…

And [the Lord] said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly [Paul concludes] I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:9-10).

Paul had a problem—a thorn in his flesh. It was a trial. And whatever it was, it hurt or bothered him so much that he referred to it as a literal “stake.” He felt like he was impaled on a sharp­ened pole. Furthermore, the source of that thorn in his flesh was Satan.

But Paul knew to look on both sides of the coin: He saw one side—Satan’s image—but he also turned the coin of pain and suffering over to see the impression of God, the imprint of the One who permitted the trial… and promised to see him through it until he was glimpsing heaven for eternity.

A Prayer to Pray:

Lord, help me to see through to the other side of the trial and testing that is in my life right now. I pray that I may know that what Satan means for evil, You will work for good.
