Discovering the REAL YOU

Finding God's Gift of well-being. God is in the business of character building, not quick-fix solutions to our problems. If we evolved from animals, we must look down to the animals to understand our behavior. However, when we turn to the Bible, we discover that is not the picture at all. Rather, we fell from God and the only way we can understand ourselves is to look up to God and see how far we have fallen. The harder you try to feel good about yourself, the more you are focused on self.




Ron's Reflections

THE CONFLICT OF CONFORMITY

Have you noticed the love/hate relationship we have with conformity?  Do not miss today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.

                                    

The Conflict of Conformity
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications

. . . predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son. . .
(Romans 8:29)


       Conformity is not optional.  Your only choice is to what or whom you will conform.  Still, a love/hate relationship exists over conformity.  People want to be unique, yet they conform to a certain group for acceptance.  Even the kid in the mall who has holes in his ears that did not come with birth, and strangely strewn multicolored hair is not unique; rather he is conforming to a group that affirms his "coolness."   
 
       This is also true when it comes to so-called free speech.  You are free to speak your beliefs so long as you say what a certain group wants you to say.  But challenge their views and they will attempt to humiliate you into silence.
 
       This is called fascism.  The word fascism does not belong only to politics.  It can be used for any society that refuses to permit debate, discussion and differences over non-essentials. The word "fascism" means to bundle sticks of wood closely together. Thus, a fascist group will let you be part of the "bundle" so long as you fully conform to their views.  If not, you are expelled.

       People want to be unique in everything from dress to ideas, then conform where they want acceptance.  Even the bush people of Alaska, who crave independence from the rules of civilization, conform to the life-consuming disciplines of survival, or they perish.
 
       Conformity to Christ, however,  is at the core of Christianity.  Sadly, some Christian groups demand conformity in areas not mentioned in the Bible.  It may be a dress code or a certain day or manner of worship.  Music styles and Bible translations are more sticks for fascist bundles.  While some submit to the bundle, others flee.
 
       Frankly, by forming these pockets of "religious fascism", we have created idols that are foreign to the true and living God.  Jesus was hated and condemned to death for not conforming to the fascism of Jewish beliefs and practices that defended laws God never ordained.  He did, however, fully conform to His Father's will and nature.  True Christian conformity is simple - become like Jesus!  This is God's predestined goal for every believer: "For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers" (Romans 8:29). And this conformity leads to completeness of life.

       Jesus was not a "free spirit."  He said and did nothing that was not of His Father.  He came as the image of His Father.  Heaven will be comprised of those who conformed to Jesus' likeness, just as He was conformed to His Father's likeness.
 
       God said, "for my people are foolish, they know me not; they are stupid children; they have no understanding" (Jeremiah 4:22). Are we not as stupid and ignorant as they when we demand conformity to tightly bundled non-biblical ideas?  Are we crucifying Jesus anew?  
 
       The world demands conformity.  So does God.  Wondrously, it is in this conformity that abundant life is experienced. Which conformity do you choose?

Always remember,  Immanuel: God is with you!
Your friend,
Ron    


 

 

 


 

KING OF THE NATIONS

1/5/2018 12:16:00 PM BY Ron Susek

As headlines grow more ominous in 2018, prepare your heart by reading today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.

                                       

King of the Nations
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications

Who would not fear you, O King of the nations?
(Jeremiah 10:7)

       The new year was still awakening and stretching its arms when the nations saw storm clouds of trouble amassing on the horizon. 


        -Thousands of marching protesters are boiling mad at the Iranian government.
        -Pakistan bristled when called upon to stop hiding terrorists.
        -Kim Jong Un warns that his finger is on the nuclear button - now!  
        -Russia is prowling around the Middle East, foraging like a hungry bear.
        -China steadily maneuvers to become the supreme, dominant global power.    

 

       Every day, newscasters present a longer list of trouble.  Luke wrote, "And there will be . . . on the earth distress of nations in perplexity . . . " (Luke 21:25-26; my emphasis).   
 
       As the world is spun out of control by Satan, (the defeated "ruler of the nations"), God's people stand firm in Jesus' words, "I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming.  He has no claim on me . . ." (John 14:30). 
 
       Satan did all in his power to disqualify Jesus from becoming our Redeemer.  But he failed.  Thus, Jesus could say, "He has no claim on me."  Jesus was able to make this claim because, "Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered.  And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation al all who obey him . . ." (Hebrews 5:8-9). 

       The upheavals of our time do not define the future.  Two thousand years ago, the decisive contest was fought between the "ruler of the nations" and the "King of the nations."  And the "ruler" who gained authority to possess mankind when Adam sinned was disarmed when Jesus obeyed His Father and went to the cross. Colossians 2:15 says, "He disarmed  the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him."  

       Had Jesus surrendered to one temptation, He could not have said that the ruler has no claim on Him.  He would have been bound under Satan's authority, and the world would be lost forever.  Instead, He obeyed . . . down to the smallest detail.   
 
       Thus, while John speaks in Revelation 20:8 of Satan deceiving the nations, Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:24 of Jesus delivering the nations to His Father. 
 
        When Satan is soon bound, the world will see the deceptions that stirred wars.  And as the lion lies down beside the lamb, the prophet's words will manifest, "Who would not fear you, O King of the nations? For this is your due; for among all the wise ones of the nations and in all their kingdoms there is none like you" (Jeremiah 10:7).

        Worry not at the trembling of the nations.  The King of the Nations has vanquished the lord of the flies (Beelzebul: Matthews 12:24), and soon, ". . . at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father" (Philippians 2:10-11).
 
Always remember,  Immanuel: God is with you!

NEVER LEAVE YOUR POST

12/28/2017 8:00:00 AM BY Ron Susek

      You may face the battle of your lifetime as an "unknown warrior" in the coming new year.  Prepare by reading today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.

                                             

Never Leave Your Post
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications

If the anger of the ruler rises against you, do not leave your place, for calmness will lay great offenses to rest.
(Ecclesiastes 10:4)

      You never know what trouble may arise over the coming year.  No matter what may come, resolve to fulfill the vital principle found in today's verse . . . do not leave your place [or, position of responsibility].  It was this truth that was hammered home by one of England's great voices during WWII.

      Dark clouds were boiling across Europe as a demon-driven megalomaniac named Adolph Hitler rolled out his war machine to conquer vast portions of Europe.  England was one of his prize targets.  A star named Winston Churchill rose amid the darkness, however, whose words empowered his people not to cower, but to fight to the end.  
 
       Speaking before the House of Commons on June 18, 1940, he said, "Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years men will still say, 'This was their finest hour'."  In other words, at all cost, let no person abandon their place of responsibility. 

       On July 14, 1940, he emphasized the point again, saying, "There are vast numbers, not only in this island but in every land, who will render faithful service in this war but whose names will never be known, whose deeds will never be recorded.  This is a war of the Unknown Warriors; but let all strive without failing in faith or in duty, and the dark curse of Hitler will be lifted from our age."
 
       And so it was.  Indeed, the war revealed heroes whose monuments stand to this day.  But countless "Unknown Warriors" died defending their posts.  Their monuments are lonely tombstones in obscure places.  In God's time, however, their honor may surpass the monuments of a famous few.
 
       Of one thing you can be certain; Satan will do all in his power to chase you from your post of duty.  In John 16:33, Jesus said, "In this world you will have tribulation."  Then He added, "But take heart; I have overcome the world."  In other words, stand firm, do not leave your post. The battle has been won, and My victory will be manifested in God's time.

        It is not easy to stand firm and hold your place when few, if any, see the heroics of your faith.  But God always sees and never forgets.  There is no trouble that He will not bring to resolution for the one who stands firm at the post of his or her calling.  
 
        Think of young Joshua and how he must have felt when the mantle of Moses fell upon his shoulders.  The responsibility of leading the Israelites up against formidable armies could have crushed him.  But, instead, he said, "Be strong and courageous.  Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you.  He will not leave you or forsake you."

        As you enter the new year, be resolved by faith to never abandon your post of duty.  Always prove your God. 
        
       And always remember :  Immanuel: God is with you!
