Anointed Action

John 10:37 “Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father. But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.” I got out of quarantine a couple of days ago and it’s been fun getting around Seoul and reminiscing about life here. On the way home I remembered my old church (Onnuri) and my pastor (Leo Rhee). He often repeated some wisdom he got from his father who was also a pastor. “After many years, people will remember you not for the sermons you preached, but for the way you lived your life.” Actions speak louder than words, and talk is cheap. The masses marveled at Jesus’ teaching, particularly because he did not come from a learned background. But in John 10, Jesus challenges those who don’t believe in his words to just look at his actions. Making the blind see and the lame walk probably proved much more effective in Jesus’ ministry than even his powerful preaching. After Jesus died on the cross, again probably the most effective tool of the early church in saving souls was leveraging signs and wonders. The disciples did some crazy miracles in the midst of incredible persecution. Markets have been a bit choppy over the last few weeks, which may have a dampening effect on some of my efforts. But today I feel like God is inviting me to think bigger and create space for him to show up with signs and wonders. That is how the victory is won. That is how the Kingdom comes. That is how glory is brought to his name. Lord, thank you for being such a loving, encouraging father. I can never outdream the ultimate dreamer. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
