Third Sunday in Lent

“Do not make for yourself.”

Scriptures:  Exodus 20:1-17, 1st Corinthians 1:18-25, and John 2:13-22. 

What is the first part of the Ten Commandments?  Many will immediately go to “thou shall…or thou shalt not.”  In truth, these commandments make no sense without the preamble, “I am the Lord your God.”  God is not asking for them to believe it.  God is not making these commandments conditioned on that belief.  God is stating a reality.  This God is not dependent upon us for definition or protection.  This God who created us, now offers to define us.  Only with this understanding can the rest make sense.  The first commandments focus on the danger of us trying to define God.  An idol is anything that we can create that ultimately defines us.  It can be anything in heaven, on the earth or even under the earth that we protect and value, even at the cost of a right relationship with God.  Can family become an idol?  Can church become an idol?  Can a country become an idol?  When anything calls us to sacrifice what we know is right or risk losing it, then we have made for ourselves an idol.  What have we made for ourselves that has become an idol?  “I am the Lord your God.”  You can’t make that for yourself.  Let the God you can’t define, define you through Jesus Christ. 

 

DISCUSSION QUESTION FOR THIS WEEK:  A New Reformation Releasing God’s People: One of the questions discussed in the church is, “How do we turn members into ministers.” Most people look at the work of the full time ordained ministers and quickly decide that this is not what they want to be. So much focus of these servants is on the internal matters of managing and running the church. What if we changed the question to, “How do turn members into missionaries?” How does this focus change what we do? How do we measure success differently? How does this affect what we expect of membership?
