You might enjoy my interview with HST alum and Harding Professor, Dr. Mac Sandlin, on developing a pneumatological virtue ethic for Churches of Christ.

AN INVITATION

We have recently launched a new Facebook group for Theist and Atheist Debates. This group will be focused on RESPECTFUL debate and a friendly atmosphere.

In particular, I believe this would be an excellent arena for Divinity students to practice their apologetics.

Along with members posting their own topics of discussion, we will be regularly posing Philosophical and Biblical questions to provoke thought from both Theists and Atheists alike.

If you believe that your members might be interested in participating, we wish to extend an invitation to join and they may do so here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/axpfandebates

We hope to see you there!

“As We Follow Jesus, Give Us an Aim, a Goal, a Purpose for Living”

Suffering is mentioned frequently in this first letter of Peter – again, very few people appreciate hearing about suffering – but we cannot avoid it. We come to the end of Chapter 1, where Peter has been writing about being holy.
Paul would address the people to whom he is writing as SAINTS – called to be different – he writes so similar to Peter.

Here is our calling – to become and be the People of God in the world.

Verse 17 will help us. If we get the right kind of fear - and right kind of love - we will live the right kind of life. And – on he goes to speak of the precious blood of Jesus Christ – with which we are redeemed – bought back from sin, and sinfulness.

I Peter Chapter 1 verses 15 and 16. Our holy God has called us - changed us - transformed us - forgiven us - filled us - and these are some of the reasons why this same holy loving God calls us to be holy. And because He is a gracious Father Who judges our work and witness impartially - we are to live our lives here as strangers - aliens - misfits - in reverent fear.

When we have the right kind of fear and the right kind of love, then we will have no trouble being holy - that will follow.

Fear is a good thing - fear of putting your hand in an open fire - fear of rushing across a busy road without looking - fear of hurting someone you love.

Peter did not want these disciples of Jesus to disobey God - or disappoint God - and this is why he writes as he does.

Verse 18 – Silver and gold are so durable and valuable – but the precious blood of Christ is more so. This leads on to us living a life of gratitude, and not grumbling.
Verse 19 - Peter goes on to explain to us what we are worth - not much in terms of silver or gold. But Jesus Christ shed His Precious Blood for me! Is Peter not also referring to the preciousness of the Man – and not just the blood? Peter writes so highly of Jesus – the One whom Peter had tried to divert from going to the Cross.

Jesus redeemed me - bought me - ransomed me - set me free from futility and emptiness - from getting nowhere.

When some young folks were asked to write down what difference Jesus has meant to you - many answered - Jesus has given me purpose - Jesus has given me a reason for living - a goal - made my life meaningful - given me a purpose for living.

There are two reasons for being thankful - being ransomed from futile empty ways - and then being given purpose and meaning.

This results in our having a confidence - it is one of the marks of a disciple of Jesus Christ.

There are many people who are uncertain and unsure - but we have confidence in God - and confidence that Jesus Christ is on the Throne of this world.
Verse 22. Peter goes on to write - because of what has happened to you - love one another deeply. And it is a love that bridges all the social and cultural gaps.

And why should we love like this? Because we have been born again.

We have been born again and we receive a new life that will never die – through Jesus Christ – and it happens through the Word - the Word preached and taught - the Word read.

God makes it clear that it is not enough just to turn over a new leaf - we need a new life.
Jesus is not interested in patching up the old life. He prefers to give us a new life. Paul writes about us being new creations – a new creation!

Peter knew this only too well - he got a brand new life from the risen and living Jesus.

Have you ever tried to imagine these saints at prayer? We have various prayers throughout the New Testament and prayer is such a vital aspect of our Christian lives and particularly in our growing to be holy – to be like God – to be holy as he is holy. It was Martin Luther who said that “To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing”.

When we were ‘born again’ and came to believe in Jesus Christ and then learned that it was Jesus Christ Who took the initiative and called and chose us, we have that desire and motivation to serve loyally and lovingly and faithfully.

“Loving God – Holy Father – give each of us a goal – an aim – a purpose for living. We want to make our lives count. You have called us. As we serve, guide and direct our paths. We pray in Jesus Name.” Amen

Teach Us the True Meaning of Being Holy

What do you tend to think about when you have nothing specific to think about? That is a sobering thought – it illustrates or indicates what we might be drinking in, and concentrating on, in life!

We are in I Peter Chapter 1 and reading on from verse 13.
Peter assumes that despite the hardships these disciples are experiencing they remain obedient children.
Do not let your possessions or desires possess you – or your quiet thoughts.

What is it that keeps us going – what was it that kept Peter going?

Peter knows where he is going – after it is all over down here.

When we came to Jesus Christ we changed bosses. We changed 'lords'. We no longer serve sin - but Jesus Christ.

Verse 15 - Peter is dealing with the Calling of God’s people – then Peter speaks about being HOLY – about being different. Never consider that as intimidating or over challenging, or restricting and limiting.

He Who called you is holy, so be holy in all that you do. This is a most unpopular verse!
We are called to be like our heavenly Father - to be like our heavenly Dad – as far as character goes. God is not like other people.

He certainly is different - and Peter teaches us - aim to be like HIM!

Our world does not need more clever men - or rich men - but it does need more godly men and women.

We are called to be holy or godly in the highest sense - not in some cartoonist fashion - but as God would make us and shape us. We seek to live as obedient children – as children of obedience.
1 - What does holiness mean? Holiness is a characteristic of God – and Peter wants the people of God to be holy. Isaiah speaks of how God is the ‘Holy One of Israel’.

This is more than moral and ethical purity – it is what makes God distinctive and separate from the rest of His Creation – as it speaks of His Love and Goodness and Power and Justice and Truth and Faithfulness – and we are called to reflect this.

We will never share His perfect wisdom – but there are characteristics we can develop or grow. In the Gospel of Jesus Christ, God is restoring something of the image of God which was lost at The Fall.

This has little to do with culture – the thinking or philosophy of the day.

Holiness has to do with self control or self discipline in Christ Jesus – avoiding carelessness or self indulgence.

It is part of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Jesus pleased not himself!

Peter thinks of the headquarters of this as in OUR MINDS.
Verse 17 - Live your lives as strangers here.
Verse 22 - It can be summed up in – Love one another deeply from the heart.

Biblical holiness makes people more human – not less!

2 – What does God tell us that motivates us to be holy? This is what God is and we are called to follow HIM. This can prevent us from grieving HIM.
Verse 19 - And also – it is what Jesus Christ has done for us. Jesus has redeemed us – and bought us back for God the Father.

3 – What are the means God employs to make His people a holy people?

Verse 13 – The grace of God in Jesus Christ given to us – this is a primary means.

Verse 23 – the enduring Word of God – this is another means to Biblical Holiness.

Hebrews 12 verse 10 – God brings discipline to our lives, for our good, that we may share in his Holiness.

Suffering is mentioned frequently in this letter of Peter – again, very few people appreciate hearing about suffering – but we cannot avoid it.

“Holy God, help us to become holy as You are holy – enable us to love one another deeply from the heart – show us what it means to be truly holy, as we look at Jesus, and fix our eyes upon Jesus.” Amen

(This week's "Word from Scotland" - previous pieces may be found at Studylight.org and liveasif.org in the 'Archives' section - every prayerful blessing in Christ Jesus.)
Today, I just wanted to express my gratitude for some godly men that were put into my life over 35 years ago. I was tremendously blessed to study at the feet of remarkable men and a remarkable woman: Annie Mae Lewis, Bill Flatt, Carroll Osburn, Rick Oster, Earl West, Harold Hazelip, Doug Brown, Joel Johnson, Jack Vancil, Mac Lynn, Philip Slate, Allen Black, Don Meredith and Jack Lewis. Each one willingly became part of God’s to shape and mold me into one of his servants. If I have been able to do any good in the kingdom of God over these past 33+ years, it has only been possible because of such gifted and dedicated servants. When I was a senior in college, HST was not even on my radar until my friend, Warren, convinced me to check it out. As Robert Frost wrote, I tool a road less travelled and that has made all the difference. Thank the good Lord for such servants as those who give so much of themselves for so many others.

We have 27 students scheduled to graduate in May. Chapel today featured three of them. Here is a little of what they said they wished they knew when they started:

Glen Knabe, graduating with Doctor of Ministry:
Be yourself in ministry. You can't be like other ministers that you hold in high regard, but they can't be you either. Be authentic.

Scott McFarland, graduating with Master of Divinity:
The people in your congregation can't understand how hard you are working in school or why it is needed. You need internal motivation to keep going through your degree.

Cana Moore, graduating with Master of Divinity
Learn the value of outside work. We have plenty to do within our coursework, of course, but when a footnote catches your eye, follow the trail.

"HST is a place of deep faith, authentic discipleship, and high academic standards. I am continually impressed by our students and what God does through them after they graduate. I hope to carry on a long tradition of what HST has always been about.

At the same time, the world is emerging from a global pandemic, the Western church faces numerical decline and social challenges, and the global church needs better-trained leaders. I firmly believe that God is working through these challenges and has positioned HST well. I look forward to seeing HST train an increasingly global and diverse group of leaders, who in turn will help local churches engage more fully in God’s mission."

-- Mark Powell

*Dr. Mark E. Powell will become the eighth dean of Harding School of Theology on July 1st following the retirement of Dr. Allen Black.

"For the past 15 years, I have been able to walk alongside an urban church that has had a strong sense of mission, a heart of mercy, and an aspiration for Christ-like transformation to happen in people. I look forward to pouring into current and future ministers from that experience and casting a vision for them of strengthening, building, and leading missional churches. I have discerned that my call now is to walk alongside future and contemporary church leaders to offer guidance and encouragement in leading God’s people toward God’s mission. I look forward to being a part of that process!"

Can HST help me get into a PhD program?

Most HST graduates go on to spend a lifetime in ministry of one form or another. But some also want to go on to do further academic work (which is its own ministry!). Theology professor Dr. Mark E. Powell sits down with admissions director Dr. Matt Carter to discuss how HST prepares students for doctoral work.

"We really focus on preparing students for ministry. A side-effect of doing that well is that our students are also well-prepared to go on to doctoral work." - Matt Carter

I feel like a theological library is a wonderful intersection of these two things, and it is thrilling to think of the work we can do in such a space."
