This week’s devotions are a summary of Promise Keepers 2018-2019 DISRUPTIVE conferences.
Bible Verse: “Do not love the world or the things in the world.” (1 John 2:15)
Scripture Reading: 1 John 2:15-17
WWJD: What would Jesus do? Years ago many chose to wear rubbery arm bracelets bearing these letters. The noble idea was to get each person to think like Jesus for all decisions and actions.
WWJD could become WDJD: What did Jesus do? This is a profound question. He did disrupt the status quo and he would disrupt if He lived on earth now. When he comes again in His glory he will make all things new, but in the meantime we are commissioned by God’s disruptive grace to disrupt like him. We are to follow Him, His ways and be the avenues by which God’s Kingdom comes and the Father’s will is done. If we do this, we will disrupt the ways of the world.
Where might be you positioned to join the disrupting, changing, transforming Kingdom of God? In your home, work or community? What injustices, poverty, racism, unbelief, or broken cultural realities catch your attention and break the heart of God?
The world is always drifting away from the will of God the Creator. Disrupting this drift is always needed and we are redeemed to be part of holy disruptions. How do we participate? Begin first with personal preparation and a constant discipline of prayer. Live the life of a follower: obey the teachings of Jesus, follow His will (not your own) and be awake to the schemes of the Evil One. Live as Jesus lived by the power of the Holy Spirit. Then, do something. There is always something I can do, from the most local to the furthest global. The real question may be: What is Jesus disrupting that I can’t not be a part of?
We’d all prefer that someone else do the disruptive work needed, but it’s time for all God’s sons to join His holy disruption for the glory of His name.
