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.

Jesus the Hero: A Guided Literary Study of the Gospels (Book 4 of Reading the Bible as Literature series) 
by Leland Ryken 
Weaver Book Company, PB, 136 pages

Is it all right to see the Bible as literature? If so, what does that mean? Wheaton University professor Leland Ryken addresses those questions in his 6-book series “Reading the Bible as Literature.” In this volume, Ryken explains how the New Testament writers used literary techniques to compose the Gospels, helping readers appreciate the amazing depth and complexity of the Gospel story.

As with many writers who are also public speakers, the author restates key phrases and concepts in each chapter, which can be distracting at first. However, once readers move past that, they will discover many excellent insights on literature and the Gospels. Ryken explains literary elements in language anyone can understand, and then draws clear connections to Scripture passages. He also successfully shows readers that “literature” does not always mean “fiction,” giving them freedom to appreciate the Gospels’ literary elements (parables, anecdotes, illustrations, similes, metaphors) and still view them as truth. This book will help readers realize that the Gospels are more than just theological guidebooks: they also are moving stories by or about Christ.

This book would be helpful to Christians struggling to understand the Gospels and to storytellers and church leaders seeking to learn about the Bible’s literary elements as a way of improving sermons or lessons. Each chapter quotes or references Scripture, discusses literary principles readers can apply when studying Scripture, and outlines practice activities whereby readers can make immediate use of those principles. This structure makes the book ideal for personal Bible study time.
