It will not start off as wine

One of my greatest challenges is that I like to be in the know. I love to plan and to know exactly the process involved in anything I do. I like to know why, how, what and when. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It is good to be informed and aware of what is going on around us. However, many times in my life I have found myself getting frustrated with God for not letting me know the nitty gritty of everything. So when I came across this particular story which I will be sharing, it sounded good but also convicting because the people involved operated on a very high level of trust and faith.

An important theme in Presuppositional apologetics is the need to evaluate things from a Christian worldview that is informed by God’s revelation.

I believe something similar to that is also helpful in evaluating what’s going on in the New Testament in light of Old Testament anticipation of prophecies.

In this post we will look at three anticipation of Jesus and the Gospel from the book of Ezekiel.

I really enjoyed this booklet that is a part of the Basics of the Faith series printed by Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing.  This is the sixth booklet that I read from the series and I read it along with my wife as our couple’s devotional reading together.  I was blessed by this beyond my expectation in comparison to the other booklets in the series I have read thus far.

Am I a slave of Jesus or a servant? 

We have lost this incredibly important concept of Jesus as Master and I am His slave. We have, in many cases, a man-centered emphasis in “the church”. Some have a man-centered theology that dominates evangelicalism, in which we talk about Jesus coming along as a kind of a buddy who loves you and wants to satisfy all your desires and give you everything you want. 

But that’s not what the new testament teaches. What scripture teaches is not that you’re Master and He’s your slave; it’s that He’s Master and you’re His slave.

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:1-4 NIV )
I don’t know about you but I have spent a fair amount of time thinking about this statement that Jesus made. What truth is Jesus telling us here? Is it a child like faith that He is speaking of? And if it is a child like faith, what exactly does that mean? And, as we notice, in the context of this statement, Jesus couples the child’s lowly position as a child, to the deeper meaning and truth of “greatness” in the kingdom of God.
