Acts 8, Acts 9 (8:1) “And Saul was there, giving approval to his death. (9:15) “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles.”
 
In Acts 8, Paul, who is then called Saul, knows where he is. He’s on a mission to destroy Christians. He was a part of a radical group of Pharisees who believed it was God’s mission for them to stamp out this misguided group of Jesus-freaks. In Acts 9, however, God gets Saul’s attention, gives him a new name, a new mission ,and a new position. It goes something like this:
 
God: “Where are you Saul?”  
Saul: “Right here on this mission to kill Christians.”
God: “I’m moving you.”
Paul: “Yes Lord.”
 
Sometimes we find ourselves in the wrong place and our position needs to change. Adam was. Saul was. Maybe you are. Perhaps this week you’ve wrestled with the question, “Where are you?” and discovered you’re on the road to Damascus, the wrong road, and your position needs to change so you can be on the right mission God has for you. Saul changed. So can you. He thought he was on the right mission, but he wasn’t. He got right. He didn’t just stand there. He did something.
 
Where are you? Do you know your mission? Do you know where you’re going? Do you need to change your position to get on mission? Can we help? I honestly don’t care where you are, but I do care that you aren’t just standing there. I hope you are doing something.
  • If you need help figuring out your position and mission, we’d love to help. Email me with your questions and we’ll join you in your wrestling. You might also check out the book, “One.Life” by Scot McKnight.  
  • If you know where you are, pray a prayer of thanksgiving to God today and then get moving. Make an impact from your position and move outward like Acts 1:8 challenges us to do.

Acts 2 (38) “Repent and be baptized, every one of you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.  And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”  (47b) And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
 
I had a friend in high school named Ralph. He was a great basketball player and a strong Christian. Ralph led people to Jesus through his position as a ball player. One day in the locker room he was talking about Jesus and one of the players in the background said, “Thank you Bible.” Some players mocked Ralph. But all of them listened and many came to Christ because he didn’t just stand there. Ralph did something.  
 
In Acts 2, Peter is in a position in front of a mass of people who needed to hear about Jesus. The Holy Spirit filled Peter and he started preaching. Peter knew where he was and humbly leveraged his position to call people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus. Some mocked him saying he was drunk. But they all listened and many came to Christ that day because Peter didn’t just stand there. Peter did something.
 
Has anyone ever thanked you for being the Bible for them? Has anyone ever thought you were out of your mind for talking about Jesus? We’re all in a position, on a mission, to share Jesus with people around us. It doesn’t matter what position we’re in, it’s our mission to do what Ralph and Peter did. Someone around you desperately needs to hear the message of Acts 2:38 and they need to see it lived out. It’s your mission. Don’t just stand there. Do something.
  • Write your story of what Jesus means to you. Get it down to no more than 50 words. Learn it so you can share that story with those around you who don’t know Jesus. You’ll be surprised how often you share that message, how many people listen and how many people come to Christ because of it.

Joshua 1:9b-10  “Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: “Go…”
 
Joshua is in my top 5 baddest Bible stars. Not “baddest” in the sense that he was bad, but “baddest” in the 1970s sense of being one bad cat!
 
Also in my top 5 is Moses. Moses had some big sandals. Not in the sense that his feet were big, but in the 1400s BC sense of being a massive player for God. Moses was a rock star and Joshua finds himself in the position of successor to Moses. Yikes!
 
God tells Joshua, “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you…” (Joshua 1:2) and gives him the mission to lead God’s people into the land God promised. But the land isn’t vacant. It’s occupied with non-“God’s people.” I’ll bet, “Now then you…” weighed on Joshua when he faced fearful challenges! But Joshua was a bad cat who was up for the mission God had him on. He humbly leveraged his position, helped God conquer the land and delivered the people into the promised land. God called Joshua to a big mission, commanded him not to be afraid and then delivered victories through him. Joshua could have shrunk inside Moses’ big sandals. But he followed God. He didn’t just stand there. He did something.
 
Is the position God has you in over your head? Are you fearful and overwhelmed with His mission for you? Be strong and courageous for the Lord your God is with you! He put you in this position and will go before you bringing victories. So don’t just stand there. Do something with courage!
  • Write out Joshua 1:9 on a sticky note. Put it in the place where you tend to be overwhelmed with your mission and claim it as God’s promise to you.
  • In a week, make a list of the victories you’ve seen God work before you in these areas.

2 Chronicles 17:6   His heart was devoted to the ways of the Lord; furthermore, he removed the high places and the Asherah poles from Judah. 
 
We ask our staff not to drink alcohol. It’s not because alcohol is evil or we don’t trust our team. We have an amazing team with great judgment. We ask this of them for various reasons, one of which is because it removes a potential obstacle that could cause trouble for those we serve. The risks associated with drinking are greater than any good it might produce. Some have struggled with this ask but all willingly submit to it because they are awesome people who want God’s best.
 
Jehoshaphat was a rare king who, from the beginning of his reign, established God as his foundation. He devoted his heart to the Lord and removed the high places of idol worship which were obstacles for people walking in faithfulness to God. He became a bridge for people who had wandered away from God to get back into a right relationship with Him. He humbly leveraged his position to accomplish the mission of God. In 2 Chronicles 20 Judah is attacked. Yet they are spiritually prepared because Jehoshaphat paved the way for God’s faithfulness. He didn’t just occupy his position. He did something.
 
Like Jehoshaphat, we all have people we influence. This means we are in positions to make decisions which impact their lives. We should be courageous and bold in our decision making. We’ve gotta be sure we are paving the way to God and not away from Him. Today is a good day to evaluate the choices you’re making and how they influence those around you. Don’t just stand there. Do something.
  • Are there some high places in your life, blocking yours and other’s relationship with God that you need to tear down today? 
  • Ask God to reveal these places and help you do the hard work of tearing them down.

Nehemiah 2:4-5(a)  The king said to me, “What is it you want?” Then I prayed to the God of heaven, and I answered the king…
 
To know where we’re going, we have to know where we are. So let me ask you the same question God asked Adam in Genesis 3. Where are you? 
 
Nehemiah was in a favorable position of service to the king when God placed a burden on him to care for His people. Nehemiah could have dismissed God’s call citing that his position was just a lowly, powerless cupbearer. What could HE do? But Nehemiah knew where he was. God gave him a mission and he humbly leveraged his position to follow it. He took a courageous risk for God right from his unique position. (Read Nehemiah.  It’s 13 chapters and will take you about 30 minutes.  It’s spectacular.) Nehemiah didn't just stand there. He did something. 
 
You’re not just anywhere - you’re somewhere significant, in a position with a mission from God.  This week we’re going to meet four others like Nehemiah who recognized their unique positions and leveraged them for God’s mission. Determine where you are, wrestle with God’s mission for you in your unique position and, like Nehemiah, don’t just stand there.  Do something.  
  • What’s your position?  Are you a work-from-home mom with influence on kids and other parents? A college student surrounded by 20-somethings all day? Are you retired with time to volunteer in the community? We all have a position and people in our sphere of influence who need to know Jesus. Draw a big circle on a piece of paper to represent your position. Write the names of the people with whom you come into contact through your position inside the circle. They each need you to do something from your position to make a difference in their life. What will you do for each one?
  • Like Nehemiah, pray and ask God to help you humbly leverage your position for His mission.

 The man replied, “The one who showed him mercy.” Then Jesus said, “Yes, now go and do the same.” (Luke 10:37, NLT)
 
When you have a choice, are you a front row kind of person or a back row kind of person? The religious expert in our passage this week must have been a Front-Row-Joe. I can just feel it! 
 
Our religious expert delivered another right answer. Jesus looks at the religious expert (and honestly, me and you) and says, “Yes, now go and do the same.”  Jesus acknowledged the right answer and then quickly moved on to what it meant to live out the answer. Whether you sit in the back row or on the front row when it comes to knowing all about God, the truth is - the “go and do the same” applies to all of us on the spectrum of knowing God. 
 
Is that refreshing to anyone else today? We need to know that we do not have to be an expert on the effects of hunger in Haiti in order to pack meals to feed people in Haiti. We do not need to know all the right answers. Paul said it best in 1 Corinthians 2:1-3 when he wrote, “And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. 
 
The most important part of the 1 Corinthians passage is that Paul came. Paul was a religious expert, himself, and yet when he came to the Corinthian church he did not come with all the right answers, but instead resolved to know nothing… except Jesus Christ and him crucified. Know God and show up. This is what it means to “Love Where You Go”.

Jesus replied with a story: “A Jewish man was traveling from Jerusalem down to Jericho, and he was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him up, and left him half dead beside the road. (Luke 10:30, NLT).
 
This may not be the usual take on this story, but I could not pass up an opportunity to talk about the fact that we all have bandits lurking beside the road we’re walking. Bandits waiting to strip us, beat us up, and leave us half dead. 
 
We have a real enemy. His name is Satan and he’s got bandits; demons sent to mess with us and attempt to destroy us and our relationship with God and others. We don’t like talking about this stuff because it sounds like science fiction, but Scripture is clear. There are demons and they mess with people. Jesus cast a ton of them into some pigs. (Matthew 8:28-33, NLT)  There was a boy (Matthew 17:14-18, NLT) who was being thrown into fire and water with seizures caused by a demon until Jesus freed him.  Mary Magdalene (Mark 16:9, NLT) had been freed from seven demons. Demons are real and they are bandits who come to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10a, NLT). 
 
These bandits frequent the roads that weave through your mind. These bandits do not want you to ever arrive at the truth. That’s why the Bible describes lying as Satan’s native language (John 8:44, NLT). Even though they cannot kill your relationship with God, they can still strip you and beat you up and leave you half dead inside. Demons strip your confidence with doubt about yourself and God’s goodness. They steal your joy. They beat you up with shame. 
 
Because of Jesus and God’s Word, we have the weapons we need to overcome the bandits. God’s Word is our sword, His Spirit is our guarantee that we belong to God, and one word defeats them every time: Jesus. They shudder at the sight of Him because His blood meant their defeat and, if you’ve given your life to Him, they shudder at Him in you. Let’s put those bandits out of business by calling their bluff and taking back the roads they’ve been stalking.

By chance a priest came along. But when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by. A Temple assistant walked over and looked at him lying there, but he also passed by on the other side. “Then a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw the man, he felt compassion for him. (Luke 10:31-33).
 
A priest, a temple assistant, and a Samaritan walk into a bar… just kidding. But, come on! This parable sets itself up perfectly to be one of those jokes. 
 
What do all three of these men have in common? Okay, they’re all three men and they’re all walking. Thank you to all the smarty-pants in the audience. Beyond that, all three of these men saw the wounded man lying on the road. Only the Samaritan, the despised Samaritan, both saw the man and felt for the man. The difference maker between those who see and those who act depends on their willingness to feel. Feeling what we see means we enter into the hard circumstances of those we want to help. 
 
Let’s be honest, this wounded man had been bludgeoned and looked terrible. Helping him was going to be messy. 
 
So who are we in this story? Usually we want to be the Samaritan, but today, I want to ask us to recognize that we are the wounded man on the road. Then Jesus saw us and decided to enter into the hard circumstances created by our own sin and feel with us. John 1:14a says, So the Word became human and made his home among us. Jesus became one of us and offered Himself as the Passover Lamb rather than the one who passed by. God could have left us to die. Instead, He saw and He felt and just like the Samaritan, He bandaged our wounds and saved us. It was messy and it hurt. True compassion always holds that risk. 
  • Who have you seen in the world or in your kid’s school or in your home who needs you to enter in and feel with them? This may be the hardest challenge of the week. Who will you get in the mess with and love?

The man answered, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “Right!” Jesus told him. “Do this and you will live!” The man wanted to justify his actions, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” (Luke 10:27-29, NLT)
 
Have you ever tried to justify your actions? “I can eat this third piece of cake… I ran today.” “She deserved that response for how she treated me.”  “What I’m doing is nothing compared to an axe murderer!” We have all attempted to justify ourselves. I understand that sometimes the word “should” can quickly be a prescription for shame, but like it or not, God gives some clear “shoulds” in the Bible. And in this passage, loving our neighbor is one of those. 
 
Unfortunately, the lines among the “acceptable” and “unacceptable” people groups were as clear then as they are today. The religious expert asked, “Who is my neighbor?”, but what he meant in his heart was, “Please do not make me love everyone.” When he quoted the law, he knew he fell short of the standard it set. Up to this point, he most likely had loved by his own definition of the word neighbor and not by Jesus’ definition. God’s Word does that to us. It tells us exactly what to do and sometimes, deep down if we’re honest, we know immediately where we’ve not lived that way. 
 
Standing right in front of this religious expert (and today in front of us!) was the remedy for this discrepancy - Jesus. This is exactly what Jesus came to do! He came to bring a new definition - a new way to know God! He not only defined the Law, He redefined relationship with God. He became the only One to keep God’s Word perfectly and then substituted His perfect life for our “always-justifying-our-actions” lives. This is grace, and this is why the “shoulds” no longer lead to shame. Praise be to God.
  • Take some time today to be thankful for Jesus. Then, out of your gratitude, go do something kind and/or generous for someone else as Jesus did for you.

The man answered, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “Right!” Jesus told him. “Do this and you will live!” (Luke 10:27-28, NLT)
 
About a week ago, I attended the funeral of a man named Louie who was a huge part of my teenage years. He taught Sunday School and he and his wife hosted my age group at their house for discipleship weekends numerous times. He died unexpectedly, and yet his funeral was one of the best I have ever attended. He did not just know God, he did something about knowing God and shared Him with others through love and service. At his funeral, that was all that mattered.
 
Our passage this week focuses on an expert in religious law who asks Jesus a very important question. The cliff-notes version: “How do I get eternal life?” Jesus responds with a question, saying, “How do you think you do based on what you know about the law?” The more you read about Jesus’ interactions with people in the New Testament, the more you see Him asking really good questions in response to questions. This was part of His way of inviting people into the conversation rather than just spewing at them what to do. I admire that about Him. 
 
The religious expert answers the question correctly: Love God with everything you have and love others like you love yourself. Here’s the thing about this story and our passage for this week: just because we know the right answer does not mean we do the right thing. We’re going to see this week that the doing - the going and doing what we know is right - is what matters most to God. 
  • Challenge yourself to read through this week’s passage, Luke 10:25-37 every day. 
  • Our prayer: “Lord, sometimes we need to remember that knowing the right answers - even the seemingly good Christian answers - is never more important than living them out. Challenge us and remind us of Your patience as we try to grow in our doing this week.”

2 Corinthians 5:20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for God when we plead, “Come back to God!”
 
It is Friday, and for many this signifies the end of the work week. As we’ve talked about making work a place of worship, we’ve learned God wants to use our 9 to 5 in the same way He wants to use our time in church on Sundays. He wants us to view our work as worship. Ultimately, work is an opportunity for people who follow Jesus to share His love. I’ve asked a few friends to offer specific ways they do this. Below is a summary of their experience. Click any that you want to read to learn more:
 
Jeremy -
Our 3,000+ employee group was facing massive restructure and uncertainty all year in 2015. I was able to have courage and share hope as I trusted God more and more.
 
This past year has been filled with anxiety for the 3,000+ employees in my group. Fears of uncertainty over new roles, new organizational structure and boss have made it a tough environment. I’ve been tested but reminded that God is the same provider no matter what the outcome. When you can't see the future clearly, and have even less control over how it plays out, all one can do is take care of today.The great news? As I've learned this lesson personally, I've been able to articulate this message daily due to my position and large number of reports. God has used me to bring calm in the face of real fears.
 
Jennifer -
God uses me to pray with patients.
I feel like God uses me at work: when I have the opportunity, I pray with patients.  I always feel like God opens doors with both believers and non-believers in various situations to allow this to happen. It is not every patient but there are a few.
 
Jesse -
God used me to set up a “debate club” to talk about my faith.
 
A buddy of mine and I at work have something called "debate club." Debate club is essentially a once a week shooting of the breeze, where we attempt to debate a hot button topic or issue. It's usually just a way we connect over some sort of in-depth, insightful, intelligent conversation. However, it's amazing how many times debate club ends up giving me an opportunity to talk about God's will in my life and the message of Christ.
 
Michelle -
I’m not super confident in what I know, but I share what I hear God telling me to with the other women in my office.
 
I work in an office with two age groups, a few of us 40 year olds and a lot of 20 somethings. In spite of my own fear and insecurity I share Jesus by simply being there and at times giving advice that is less about what's ok "in the world," and what God would have them do.
Let’s all pray this prayer together -- “God, Thank you for my work. Use me today, to share your love with others. Help me to work as though I’m working for you. Amen.”

Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
 
What comes to mind when you think of worship? Do you think of singing songs in church, or maybe it’s taking in a sunset on the beach. Perhaps your picture of worship was shaped in a quiet cathedral experience as a kid. Maybe worship is a long walk in nature talking with God. All of those experiences have significant weight and worth, but very few of us envision that late tiresome stretch of a typical workday as a prime chance to worship God. What if we valued that as worship in the way God does? Your most holy moment today might be the effort you put into the least favorite moments of your work day.
 
Let’s commit together to working all day like God’s on the receiving end of every email, report, lecture, meeting outcome, patient consultation, phone call, transaction, spreadsheet update, diaper change, platter served, nail driven or whatever it is you’ll do today.
 
 
Tweet us @southlandcc to tell us what you’ll be doing to honor God at work today. Use the hashtag #lovewhereyouwork so we can join in together.

James 1:3 For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.
 
So what do you do when your faith is tested at work? Here’s what my friend Todd went through.
I was asked to alter some records. I didn't feel comfortable with it and decided I didn't need a job that bad, so I resigned. My coworkers were stunned because I didn't have a backup plan, but I kept my conscience. I was unemployed for five months, which ended up being one of my strongest seasons of spiritual growth. I left quietly but it took a while to forgive former co-workers. Years later I sat down with both people involved and let them know I'd forgiven them. They were stunned; it was awkward at best -- but the right thing to do. 
I love the phrase from our opening Scripture, “Whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus.” There are real challenges in the workplace. From gossip to dirty jokes, cutting corners that everyone else does, altering records or flirting with co-workers while married -- these realities unfortunately exist. One place our faith can be tested most is in the workplace. In order to truly love where we work we have to represent Jesus where we work.
  • What is the biggest faith challenge you face at work?
  • If you’ve fallen short of representing Jesus there, what do you need to confess to Him? If you’ve confessed, who will help keep you accountable?
  • If you are representing Jesus well at work, what is He calling you to next?
Stay tuned and on Friday we’ll offer some simple and practical tips for being Jesus to your co-workers and employees.

Colossians 3:23 Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.
 
I loved soccer as a kid. I chose to play goalkeeper since I hated to run - and got to use my hands. In order to get better I’d attend soccer camps in the dog days of summer. At the end of a morning training session, one of the top coaches at the camp pulled me aside to run a quick drill. I started at one end of ten soccer balls laid out on the ground about four feet apart. I had to dive at the ball to stop it while he blasted it from close range. Before I could get on my feet, he was on to the next one. It was a dive/lunge/army crawl/survive all at once type of drill.  Soccer balls one through four were fine, but by number six I was done. By number eight his close range blast felt like it shattered one of my fingers. Finally I got to the end of the drill. I had nothing left, but I acted like I could go all day. Mercifully, he was finished.
 
It’s funny what motivates us. When Paul challenged first century slaves to work willingly I’m sure they thought, “That’s nice Paul, but you have no idea what a bum my master is!” Paul was well aware of the relationships slaves had with their masters. Slaves were so commonplace there was no one type of experience, but at the end of the day slaves had no rights. They were at the bottom of the totem pole. So for us, what’s our motivation at work? Are we slogging it out because retirement is close enough in sight to endure? Are we punching the clock without passion because our actual job and dream job are miles apart? Are we overworking ourselves because we’re prideful or greedy? If you work in the home are you exhausting yourself to keep up with the real or perceived expectations of others? Our work takes on an entirely different perspective when our motivation is aimed at our loving Father in Heaven. We don’t earn His favor through work, but honoring Him with it is a healthy calling.

Colossians 3:23 Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.
 
 
American culture is rich with work-related comedies. The Office and Office Space are two of the most prominent. In them, the stereotypical boss is aloof and out of touch. He spends his day getting nothing done, but annoying his employees. We laugh because there is so much similarity between the on-screen supervisor and traits we’ve seen in some of our own.
 
As we’ve come to learn from this past Sunday at Southland, Scripture talks specifically about how we should deal with those in authority over us. More to the point, there is a lot at stake in these relationships! As a matter of fact, Paul, who wrote large portions of the New Testament, had high expectations for people working without pay (slaves), let alone people like us who have real benefits tied to our work.
 
Maybe you report to a boss, a board, yourself and/or you work in the home and are accountable to your spouse and kids. As we start the week thinking about the challenge to “Love where you work,” let’s take a few moments to evaluate our current perspective on our work environment. Specifically, let’s focus on who we work for. Paul wrote the words we read at the beginning of this devo to a group of slaves. Take a moment to read them again. In spite of the unfairness of their circumstances, Paul blew up a reasonable perspective to be resentful or even hateful toward their bosses by teaching them that work wasn’t ultimately for a boss (or board or supervisor); it’s ultimately for God.
 
If the challenge is to honor those you work for, then let’s get time alone with God and do this quick inventory:
  • In the past weeks, have I used my words to build up or tear down my boss?
  • In the past weeks, have I performed at my full capacity? If not, where am I cutting corners?
  • In the past weeks, have I respected my supervisor like I respect God?
