Give Me a Reason:
Today is Monday, May 30, Memorial Day, and yes, I am on the job writing this
bulletin article. I am still thinking about yesterday. It was Sunday, the Lord’s Day and
though many were absent for one reason or another, it was a great day of worship and
Christian fellowship. I am especially thinking about the Summer Kickoff following the
evening service.
Summer Kickoff is an after worship gathering in the back church parking lot. It was
pure Christian fun, food and fellowship. Of course, once again while playing basketball, I gave credence that the legend grows.
Last night, as I was thinking about the Lord’s Day and what an encouraging day it
was for me and hopefully for you as well, I thought if anyone ever needed a reason as
to why it is a blessing to be a Christian, today was it! Let me give you a few reasons
why it is a blessing to be a Christian:
First and foremost, we are able to overcome our crummy past and live with our sins
forgiven. The great prophet Jeremiah, writing about the New Covenant, said, “For I
will be merciful to their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more” (Jeremiah
31:34; 50:20). If we are honest, all of us have a past that we would rather forget. We
can all remember those times when we behaved in a way that we are now ashamed.
Paul reminded us of “those things” when he said, “therefore what benefit were you then
deriving (having) from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of
those things is death” (Romans 6:21). Like the apostle Paul who thought of himself as
“the chief of sinners” (I Timothy 1:15), we could say the same about ourselves if we
are honest. We have all been “on a journey into a distant country” (Luke 15:13) as did
the prodigal son.
We are blessed because through Christ Jesus our sins were forgiven and fellowship
with Him restored. “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of
yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may

boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). We cannot boast because we
have not earned anything. It is all about what Jesus did
for me on the cross and my faith in Him. The only thing
I did was respond to His offer of salvation. “Now why
do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away
your sins, calling on His name” (Acts 22:16).
When I was living as a misguided teenager, I thought
all I wanted was freedom, to be free. I found freedom
the night Jesus saved me from my past and my sin and
gave me a real purpose for living. You can spend your
whole life searching for something that will give you
real and lasting joy, happiness, and satisfaction and not
find it. I found it at the foot of the cross.
Why be a Christian? It can be summed up with one
little four letter word – hope. What is the worst that can
happen to us in this earthly life? Is it having problems?
Is it human suffering? No, it is having problems but
having them without hope. No matter what happens to
us in this life, we have hope because God is bigger than
the problems that we face. Only God knows what He
will choose to do for us in any given situation. Paul
asked the Lord three times to take away his thorns in the
flesh, but the Lord said No (II Corinthians 12:7-9).
The Lord may choose not to change the circumstances in which we find ourselves. Yet, we live with hope in
spite of that because as David said long ago, “The Lord
is my shepherd, I shall not want” (Psalm 23).
Well, there are many other reasons too numerous to
mention in this brief bulletin article. These are more
than enough to convince me and hopefully you as well.
What is the Lord asking us to do in return for His blessing? Live according to His Word and Will and when
necessary sacrifice our will to do His. Why does He ask
us to live according to His Will and Word? So that we
will be able to enjoy all His blessings and benefits to
us. I call that a bargain
