My fellow Americans.

Posted by appolus on November 2, 2020

My fellow Americans. There is a tension in the air, is there not? An anxiousness. Its kinda hard to describe. I remember standing waiting for the leather belt in Catholic school. You knew what was coming, the deed had been done, the sentence handed down, and now you were just waiting for the punishment. Outside the class, outside the assistant headmasters room. Sometimes inside the class, where there was five other guys getting belted before you. A wee bit of a knot in the stomach.

Or perhaps someone challenged you to a fight after school. In my world the phrase was “your claimed.’ So, inevitably it would be a long day until the bell rang. Instead of a day it has been more like a year In America and the bell is about to ring. You get this inner sense that America stands betwixt two points and whatever way it goes there can be no turning back. There are multiple ramifications no matter which way it goes. Yet it was always good to get the belt over with. It was always good to get the fight over with. Some kind of sense of relief. Even a bad report from the doctor is better than the not knowing.

To my brothers and sisters in Christ, this is an excellent opportunity to strike a blow against anxiousness. Do it now, do it before the vote is cast so to speak. Show the Lord that your faith means something, your trust means something. Scripture tells us that the just shall live by faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God. Trusting in God, what a wonderful affirmation of your love for Him and who He actually is. I believe our whole sanctification is measured by the barometer of trust/faith. We are called to cast all of our cares upon Jesus. Casting a vote is one thing, but to cast all your cares upon Jesus is the very essence of our lives in Christ. By an act of the will, do it today, do it now.

The deep place of blessing.

Posted by appolus on November 2, 2020

1Jn 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

The greatest revelation of God in my life has come in the midst of my needs. It has not come in my wants or desires or accomplishments it has come in my needs. The greater the need the greater the revelation. The second time of greatest revelation of God in my life has come when I have sinned against Him. There is no deeper humiliation for a saint than to have failed his Lord badly. Yet, when I approached the throne of grace with my head hung low and with a spirit within that was crying out ” woe is me for I am undone,” then suddenly I am encountered with love and forgiveness even although I myself had desired punishment and penance to atone somehow for my sin. Now I am undone not because of my unworthiness but because of the realization of the depths of His love and faithfulness to me. It is His holiness that saves, it is his grace that is sufficient and it is His faithfulness that will never fail. He increases in my heart and I decrease as I realize the very source of all that I am in Him and in Him alone.

If our sins lead to humility and repentance and brokenness before the throne where we receive a greater and deeper revelation of who God is, and they do, then would not the enemy of our souls do everything in his power to keep us from this place? And the easiest and most effective way to do that is to convince us that we never have to seek that place out. Do not be fooled saints, God is glorified and revealed to us in the depths of our needs, our infirmities and our failures. Should we then seek to be in need or to be infirm or to sin so that God may be glorified?

God forbid. I can guarantee that you wont have to seek out needs or infirmities or sin. They will find you because you are finite and corruptible. But an infinite God will one day raise you up in in-corruption. And until that day comes His grace will be sufficient for you. He will meet you in the depths of your needs. He will be faithful to forgive all of your sins when you come before Him and confess them. And in all of that you are drawn ever deeper into the heart of the Father.
