The Chapel Quotes

The Kingdom of God is over and pervades everything. The Kingdom of God is already here, but we are yet to experience its full fruition. How are we to respond in very difficult and tense times? We are to submit ourselves to God and to one another.  Our default posture is to be in submission. The opposite of that is to be self-centered. There are times when our submission does not result in obedience. When the authority of God cannot be aligned with the authority of what the government is telling us to do, we as Christians choose the authority and the truth of God. What does your disagreement when the kingdoms collide produce in you? The three earthly institutions that God has ordained are the government, the church and the family. Maximum freedom is found under God’s authority. The government is given the power of the sword, the church the power of the keys and the family the power of the rod. The role of government in this world is to maintain order. Submission to our government authorities is a matter of action and attitude. Our default posture is one of submission. The best citizens in the United States of America should be Christians.

Devotion 05/19/2024
Our Devotion: “Flee to Victory” is by Micah M. Hancock of Morton, Illinois who studied professional writing at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: “So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.” I Tim. 2:22

Sometimes we just have to run. When I was in grade school, I enjoyed football. When I played football I rarely touched the ball, but I would imagine that I could make great plays to score. I would envision myself running nobly into the end zone.

One night, a football game began with several people older than me. I had just begun imaging doing something amazing when a hustle for the ball began. Suddenly, I grabbed the ball and dashed for the end zone. There is a size difference between a sixth grader and an eighth grader, and I knew if I was caught, I probably would not survive. I sprinted, arms flailing, toward the goal because my life depended on it. Then it happened. I scored. Just as I ran away from the hulky eighth graders and toward the goal, Paul encouraged Timothy to flee from sin and run toward life. Paul knew that only the brave race to victory.

PRAYER: Lord, I want to run away from sin and toward You. I need Your strength to flee. I believe that I as I flee, I am growing closer to the goal. I love You. Amen.

enGendered 
by Sam A. Andreades 
Weaver Book Company, PB, 252 pages

New York City pastor Sam Andreades tackles one of the most controversial arguments in American culture today: the role of gender in life and relationships. Andreades systematically takes the reader through the Bible, finding and interpreting passages that relate to gender relations, starting all the way back at the creation of mankind as male and female. In addition, Andreades illustrates how these biblical principles appear in modern culture through interviews with and references from several expert sources, as well as his own original research. Using scriptural citations to lay a foundation for what God’s plan is for sexual identity, marriage, family, and community, and then offering contemporary research related to the psychological, sociological, and physiological aspects of gender focus, the author presents a strong case for sustaining traditional moral and Christian values as related to gender identity.

The book uses layperson’s language in dealing with many of the questions and issues modern Christians struggle with when it comes to gender relations. From broad concepts to specific details of daily life, Andreades does a good job of providing the reader with biblical answers to these questions. This book would be beneficial to adults of all ages. It hits on specific principles of value for both men and women. Whereas the book does focus more on gender in regard to relationships, there are also good bits of information for singles.

From the outset, Andreades establishes a God-focused mindset through which he approaches his topic. This high view of God and understanding of His character allows for an intimate glimpse into mankind as His creation that would otherwise be impossible. Whereas a few statements could be considered a bit of a stretch, Andreades does a good job of sticking to scripture and grounding his interpretations within the context of the time period and the rest of the Bible’s teachings.

While many folks today might not be very keen on speaking the truths of the Bible for fear of offending someone, Andreades presents the principles of the Bible in a direct way, all the while maintaining a tone of love and humility. In this world where gender and its roles are constantly under scrutiny or attack, this book provides standards that celebrate gender differences and the original intent of those distinctions.
