The Body of Christ 7/15/15

Good morning,

I have been reflecting a lot these last two days on this past weekend and what is ahead for the next couple of weeks.

This past weekend we saw the Body of Christ in a way that few people today ever see it.  Nine (9) congregations came together as THE church.  Please understand that I said that purposefully – it wasn’t 9 churches, it was 9 congregations, 9 different parts of the Body of Christ here in Lincoln County decided to BE the Body of Christ.  We majored on what we know we have in common, Jesus, and had an incredible weekend.  John Duncan, Alan Stoddard, Ed Vinson, Derrick Jones, Bobby Barnett, Phil Appel, Justin Bowman and Chris Weaver showed themselves to be men of God.  We ARE NOT perfect.  We DO NOT always do things right.  There are times when we mess up, but this weekend these 8 men showed their heart.  And I was and am blessed to be a part of this journey with them.

But what is even more amazing is the congregations that came along too.  We worshipped together; we sang and laughed together; we listened to and learned from the preaching of the Word of God; we ate pie together, drank some coffee together and we loved each other.  In other words, we were showing what the Body of Christ looks like.  For those of you who were able to be a part of it you understand what I’m talking about.

We have the opportunity to see that continue in a unique way starting today for the next four days as Ranchman’s Camp takes place over on Nogal Mesa.  This is the 75th year we’ve met together like this.  We don’t talk about the separate congregations; we don’t emphasize the “way” in which we are different; we celebrate the Body of Christ.  I want to urge you, don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of this.  The setting is rustic; the people are loving and warm; the food is delicious; the music is wonderful, the preaching is unique and blessed and the coffee is cowboy coffee all the way!  I urge you to head out to Nogal Mesa at some point during the rest of this week and take part in the Body of Christ Ranchman’s Camp style!

In about 12 days people who are parts of the Nazarene churches across the NM district and beyond will come together here at Bonita Park for our annual Family Camp.  (And just a note, you don’t have to be a part of the Nazarene church to be a part of this, after all, that would COMPLETELY defeat the purpose wouldn’t it?)  It is a different part of the Body of Christ but it is a time to come together and see how God works in another setting.  Again, what you will find is the Body of Christ loving, sharing, worshipping, learning to love the Word, singing, eating, fellowshipping and yes, drinking coffee together.  If you’ve never experienced it I want to encourage you to make plans to do so, July 27-August 2.

You and I are blessed – we are part of something here in Lincoln County that doesn’t happen everywhere.  I have friends from other parts of the country that see and hear what is happening here (because I LOVE to share it) and they tell me it isn’t happening there.  We can be a part of a revolution – we can be a part of the beginning of something that God intended all along.

Thank you Father for allowing me to be at this place, at this time and a part of what YOU are doing!

I love you,

Rick

Daily Devotional

Psalm 13:5-6 – “But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.  I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me.”

Take joy in the Lord.  Allow Him to change you and expand your vision of His Kingdom and your place and purpose in it.  Let His joy fill you so much that it not only changes you but also everyone around you as you let Christ work through you.  Love covers a multitude of sin, hatred, and discouragement.  today, plant seeds of change in someone’s life and you plant seeds that will change a life!  You have a place and role in the business of  “Kingdom Building”.  What a great thought!
