A Marriage That Honors God – The Wife’s Role (I Peter 3:1-6 KJV)
Series: I Peter
The Holy Spirit spends the first six verses of 1 Peter 3 instructing wives how they can have a positive impact on their marriage, even if their husband is not a saved man. Women have a tremendous amount of power and influence, even if they do not realize it. They have the power to alter the course of their marriage for good and bad. These verses should be an instruction to all, a warning to some, and an encouragement to many.

    The Three “R’s” of Revival
    The subject of revival has become one of controversy and confusion. Revival is when God's people, who have drifted from total obedience to God, repent of their sins and return to that place of obedience.
    Often people confuse the results of revival with revival itself. Large crowds gathering to hear the preaching of the Word, unsaved people turning to Christ in greater numbers, and appropriate emotional responses are not revival. They are the result of Christians responding to the convicting work of the Holy Spirit with repentance and renewed obedience.
    Perhaps we have not seen much revival because we have been looking for the wrong thing. If you want to see revival, you must remember what full obedience looks like, then examine your life for areas where you have fallen away from that. Then you should repent of those sins and renew your obedience to God. That is revival.

    Sin Sick Souls (Mark 2 KJV)
    One of the criticisms leveled at Jesus by His opponents was that he was “a friend of publicans and sinners.” What they meant as an insult was actually a complement.  Yes, Jesus loves sinners. He loves them so much that He left heaven, came to earth to live among them, died to save them from their sin, and then rose again to offer them eternal life.
    The world would have us believe that love is letting people do whatever they believe is best for themselves.  But if what they are doing is destructive, it is not love to let them continue doing it.  Jesus loved sinners enough to spend time with them, but not so that He could affirm them in their sin.  He spent time with them so He could tell them the truth about their sin and their need to be saved.
    In Mark 2 we read of an instance where Jesus addressed this criticism.  He answered it brilliantly with the very simple illustration of going to the doctor.  If we are wise we will go to the doctor for regular well visits. But, other than that, we don’t go to the doctor just to hang out.  We go to the doctor when we are sick and need something to cure us.  Similarly, people who think that sin is not a problem don’t understand their need to be saved and do not seek help to remedy their sin problem. How, then, can we help sin sick souls see that need?
    In the medical field, they use the phrase “doctor-patient relationship.” We understand that if we want the best outcome in healthcare there must be a rapport between the physician and the patient. Jesus understood this principle and so must we. If we are going to be effective in reaching the lost, we have to connect with the lost in some fashion to do that.

    The Courage of Revival Part 2
    Reading the history of the Jews in the Old Testament can be very frustrating because there are so many instances of repeated rebellion followed by the predictable outcome of God’s judgment. At some points, they experienced a genuine spiritual revival. One such revival took place under the leadership of king Asa in the southern kingdom of Judah. The story is recorded for us in 2 Chronicles 15. The condition of the nation prior to this revival was horrible. The country was “without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law” and in trouble. God sent a prophet to warn and encourage the nation and the king. If they would repent and turn to God, He would deliver them from their hardship. To do that would require a tremendous amount of courage on the part of king Asa. He would have to take steps that might upset some people, even to the point of violent retribution. Had Asa been a coward, he would have allowed the people to keep doing what they were doing. Instead, “he took courage, and put away the abominable idols out of all the land of Judah and Benjamin.” He led the people to renew the altar to the Lord. They then restarted the practice of public assembly for instruction in the word of God, and there was a real affirmation of their commitment to follow the Lord. Make no mistake: it takes courage to admit that you are wrong, that your friends are wrong, or that your family is wrong. It takes even more courage to do something about it and make it right. But if revival is to take place in your life, you must be brave enough to deal with sin.

    The Loudmouthed Leper (Mark 1:40-45 KJV)
    Mark 1:40-45 records one of the first miraculous healings that Jesus performed, and the reaction of the healed man is an encouraging example for us to follow. A man who came to Jesus had the disease of leprosy. Leprosy is an infectious disease for which there was no known cure in Jesus’ day. It resulted in a slow and painful death for the person infected. Because of its infectious nature, the person had to live in isolation or a leper colony. The fact that he broke protocol and approached Jesus so closely speaks of his courage and desperation. The Bible says that Jesus was “moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.” Immediately the man was healed. Jesus then instructed him to go straight to the priest to fulfill the regulations of the Old Testament Law regarding leprosy. Jesus commanded the man not to tell anyone else what had happened until that had been done. But the man was so overcome with joy he immediately began to tell everyone he could what Jesus had done for Him. The result was an enormous number of people went to see Jesus for themselves. If a man who was cleansed from a physical disease could have so much enthusiasm about telling others what Jesus did for him, then we who have been healed from the spiritual disease of sin can too. If this man made such an impact through his disobedience to Jesus’ command, then we can have an even greater impact through our obedience. God has done so much for us, and we should be eager to “publish it much.”

    The Field is Out There (Luke 10:2-3 KJV)
    There is something about the image of a big, old barn against the backdrop of green or golden fields that brings a sense of peace and serenity. Whether you are a farmhand or a city slicker, you can certainly appreciate the beauty of such a scene.  While everyone loves the look of a pretty barn, what good is it if the fields around it are full of barren soil and rotting crops? A barn is where the supplies are kept, the equipment is maintained, and the harvest is stored. It is where the farmhands meet their boss in the morning and get their assignments for the day. And while a lot of work takes place in the barn, the work of sowing and reaping has to occur in the field. And the field is outside, not inside the barn.  “For this reason, the church membership should not be considered the field but the force. Consequently, the entire program of the church should be geared to training and challenging its force to go out into the field and to spread the gospel of Christ.” Jesus told his disciples, “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.” (Luke 10:2-3)  The laborers in the spiritual harvest must be sent forth into the fields, and we are those laborers. God has commanded us to go, and as we are going, we are to preach and teach the gospel. Spending time in the barn is good, but we must get out in the fields to reap a harvest.

    Jael and the Nail (Judges 4:11-21 KJV)
    Barak was listed in Hebrews 11 as an example of faith, but his faith was very weak because it depended on someone else. He refused to go into battle at the command of the Lord unless Deborah, the prophetess, came with him. She agreed but informed him that the credit for the victory would not go to him
    but to a woman. 
    Barak gathered his army, and word got to Sisera, the general of the Canaanite army, that the Israelites were preparing for battle. He made the first move and, with his superior forces, tried to surround them quickly. God, however, was on Israel’s side and discomfited the army of the Canaanites. As Sisera’s army fled in terror, he found himself on foot, running for his life. He made his way to the Homestead of Heber, a family with whom they were at peace. Jael, the wife of Heber, hid him in her tent and gave him milk to drink and a comfortable place to sleep. While he slept, she took advantage of the opportunity and drove a spike through his head, ending his life.
    From Barack, we learn the grace of God to give us victory even when our faith is weak. From Sisera, we learn the folly of trusting in our own strength, our own weapons, and our own ingenuity. The lesson is clear from both. Only by trusting God will we have victory.

    With Authority (Mark 1:22)
    There have been many great preachers throughout history. God has used men like George Whitfield, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, D. L. Moody, and Billy Sunday to proclaim the gospel to millions of people. But there is no greater preacher than the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Living Word who proclaimed the written Word like no one else has.
    Many things set the preaching of Jesus apart from others, but one of the first things that people noted was the authority that Jesus preached with. They were not used to someone declaring the truth without hedging or hesitancy. The religious leaders they were accustomed to hearing always seemed uncertain and left the door open for other possibilities than what they thought might be true. Jesus, on the other hand, boldly declared the Word of the Lord as absolute, unwavering, undeniable truth. That truth was to be believed and not questioned, cross-examined, or factchecked by bookworms who put more emphasis on what man said God said rather than what God actually said. Things are not all that different in our day. We have an abundance of so-called Bible teachers and preachers who will happily tell you all the ideas scholars have come up with about the meaning of scripture, but it is rare for someone to declare in simple faith, “This is the truth.” Christ taught with authority, and if we are to be faithful followers of
    Him, we must have the same boldness in proclaiming the truth. From the preacher in the pulpit to the soul winner on the porch, Christians must be firm in their faith and authoritative in their witness.
