Text: Hebrews 10:24-25

Path

Reload Love's mission is to convey God's love by fighting back with tenderness toward children who have been impacted by terror. For six years, Reload Love has provided trauma relief, medical supplies, academic programs, and playgrounds and other safe spaces for children caught in the crossfire of terrorism. Now, the vision has expanded to include supporting church plants and in-country evangelists. On this Love Bomb weekend, Pastor Skip shares the need to come together as a family to act upon God's great love.
  1. Gather Regularly (v. 25)
  2. Love Lavishly (v. 24)
  3. Act Decisively (v. 24)
Points

Love Bomb Weekend
  • At Calvary Church, we believe in bombarding people with love. People all over the world need to hear and see the love of Christ in culture. God's people are uniquely equipped to show and share God's love.
  • We see this truth in Hebrews 10:19-25. The book of Hebrews was written to Jews. The rituals, ceremonies, and laws of the old covenant tempted the Jews to return to Judaism. The author of Hebrews wrote to the Jews, telling them to hold to the confession of Christ and exhorting them not to forsake assembling together.
Gather Regularly (v. 25)
  • Why should we go to church? We gather with one another to have Christian community—something we can't get elsewhere. We need to gather together to worship, pray, learn, and serve.
  • In the first century, Christians were persecuted and lost their jobs, lives, and social positions; they needed a spiritual family. We can't replicate the personal touch of people via social media or the web; we need each other, personally and practically.
  • "God sets the solitary in families" (Psalm 68:6). God has placed us in a community of believers, people to share life with. Furthermore, we need the body of Christ; all of the members are important (see 1 Corinthians 12).
  • We need other people. We lose out and can become dangerously isolated without fellowship. We need to draw near to Christ, hold fast to His love, and act compassionately toward others, together.
Love Lavishly (v. 24)
  • Our society stirs up hatred and division, but we need to awaken love. "Let love be without hypocrisy" (Romans 12:9). Hypocritical love cannot be part of the church.
  • Love is sacrificial. Jesus said people will know we are His disciples by our love (see John 13:35). Jesus gave the world permission to judge Christians by this standard because love makes an invisible God visible.
  • When we show the love of God through Christ, we show God's heart to the world; people will see the characteristic of love in us (see 1 John 4:12), reflecting God's love for the world (see Matthew 5:15-16).
Act Decisively (v. 24)
  • Notice in verse 24, the author said that Christians are to stir up "love" and "good works." We need to stir up virtuous deeds of love by acting decisively in love toward others, which can be difficult for some.
  • According to psychologists, compassion fatigue (also known as secondary traumatic stress) is possible. People can lose sensitivity to the needs of others. This is why the writer of Hebrews said Christians need to meet and "stir up love and good works" (v. 24).
  • Jesus gave us a specific command to love one another (see John 13:34). We must choose to love—encouraging and motivating one another to love and do good works in order to represent God's love to a hurting world. God sent Jesus to save us because of His love for the world (see John 3:16 and Luke 19:10). Jesus made the invisible God visible for all.
Practice

Connect Up: "God is love" (1 John 4:8) but not all love is of God. As Pastor Skip said, love for pizza is not the same as love for God. But the unique agape love, divine love, is God. God is the same as His love. How does God demonstrate His love in the world? Discuss the following areas:
  • Creation (see Genesis 1): How does creation reflect God's love?
  • Marriage (see Genesis 3): The union of a man and woman; how should marriage reveal God's love?
  • Family (see Exodus 20:12, Ephesians 5:22-33, Colossians 3:18-21): How should the family reflect God's love?
  • Community (see John 4:19, Colossians 3:13, and Romans 12:18): How should true community imitate God's love?
  • Holy Spirit: How does God's presence via the Spirit show us God's love?
  • Salvation (see John 3:16 and 1 John 4:19): How did God demonstrate His love through Christ?
  • What other areas can you think of where God has demonstrated His love?
Connect In: First Corinthians 13 is Paul's definition of love. Using the passage as a guide, discuss how the church is to be a living witness to love. What areas can you improve upon? What practical steps can you take to be more loving? What characteristics does Paul encourage Christians to "put on" (see Colossians 3:12-17)? What should be the result (e.g., peace, wisdom, thanksgiving, worship, and good deeds)?

Connect Out: Take time to pray for the work of Reload Love. Using the map found at reloadlove.com/about-us/, pray for the following countries: Bulgaria, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Uganda, and the Navajo Nation. Also, pray for our partners: the Free Burma Rangers and the various Christians we'll partner with in upcoming projects (see 2020 Projects): reloadlove.com/projects/love-bomb-2020/.

Gather, Love, and Act: Bombard the World with Love - Hebrews 10:24-25 - Skip Heitzig

[MUSIC PLAYING]

Good morning.

[APPLAUSE]

Oh, man. Thank you. Thank you very much. Great to be back. Please have a seat.

You've probably used this term before-- like you've said or you've heard yeah, you know, I need that like I need a hole in the head. Well come to find out, I actually did need a hole in the head. I had what's called a subdural hematoma. There was blood on the brain so they had to alleviate that. But I'm happy to be here. I'm happy to be back.

[APPLAUSE]

And I'm happy to be here on this weekend. This is Valentine's Day weekend. There is the weekend we celebrate-- typically people celebrate during this week their love for one another. And we have co-opted Valentine's Day weekend, because we believe that it's our opportunity to show God's love to people who would otherwise not be able to know about it.

And I know what it's like this past week to get bombarded by love. I've had my own love bomb. People have written so many kind notes and posts and emails and cards and meals. So thank you, thank you, thank you for that.

And I know that all people show love whenever there's an issue that comes up, a problem that comes up. If somebody gets hurt, somebody will be there for them. We know that all people do that. That's just general. However, God's people do it best. God's people do it best. They do.

Quick story-- way back in the earlier part of the early church history, there was a historian by the name of Tertullian. Tertullian was one of the early chroniclers of church history. And he tells a story that the Roman government was very suspicious of Christians who were growing in the Roman Empire at the time. They did not know what to make of them. They were suspicious because they thought they would be disloyal to the Roman government.

So the government sent spies into their assemblies. And Tertullian writes that these spies came back on one account and said something to the effect of, you know, these Christians are strange people-- which I would tend to agree with. But they said, they're strange people because they meet in an empty room. There's nothing really there. They talk about a guy named Jesus, who is not there. But they seem to expect him to be there at any time, to show back up.

But then he ended his report by saying, and my how they love him. And how they love one another.

So what struck these spies is the love that was being shown by the church for other believers. My how they love him and how they love one another. Really that's why we're here this weekend. We've always had a mission presence. We've always done things to reach out to a lost and suffering world. We we've always believed that is a core value. We believe that the world needs to hear, and not only to hear but also to see the love of God.

We believe we have a very unique opportunity set before us in this organization that we call Reload Love. It's something that I believe in personally to the extent that I give to it. We as a family invest in it. And it's something I'm hoping you'll believe in too. Very minimally that we would all be praying for what God wants to do and praying for people, but then also hopefully to get involved in it financially.

So I want to read a text to you out of Hebrews chapter 10, something that in my recovery the last week I was looking at. It just sort of struck me. The writer of Hebrews in chapter 10 says-- this is Hebrews 10 verse 19, I'm beginning that paragraph--

"Therefore brethren having boldness to enter the holiest by the blood of Jesus by a new and living way which he consecrated for us through the veil that is his flesh. And having a high priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies wash with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works. Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another. And so much the more as you see the day approaching."

A quick background note-- the book of Hebrews, we don't exactly know who wrote it. But we do know that the audience was Hebrews. They were Jewish. Their background was Judaism. They had come to faith in Christ, but because of the pressure of that older religious system Judaism. They were tempted, many of them, to go back and trust in the sacrifices at the temple. Trust in the synagogue. Trust in the religion they were brought up with. Some of us know exactly what that feels like. When you came to Christ, you were pressured by parents. You were pressured by a church you left. And it's just more comfortable and much easier to just go back and not create any waves.

So the writer is telling them, don't do that. You're not just changing religions. You are leaving an old system for something and someone who is far better. And that is Jesus himself. So that's what the background of this book is written about.

What I want to do is zero in on just a couple of verses. I read a paragraph, but two verses that basically tell us who we are, what we do, and why. And two verses especially that I mentioned are verse 24 and verse 25. In those two verses we have three things that we as believers do, and why. We meet regularly. We love lavishly. And we act decisively. We gather regularly. We love lavishly. We act decisively.

He says in verse 25, "not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together as is the manner of some." We don't exactly know what was causing some to stop meeting together, but obviously that that was the case. I'm guessing that it was the pressure of Judaism, the pressure of family, the pressure of rabbis that were causing some believers to not meet together as Christian believers but just to go back to the old system. So the author says, don't do that. Don't forsake the assembling of ourselves together.

So I put that all under the category of we meet regularly. We meet regularly.

There are in this paragraph words that are noteworthy. They are collective words-- not writing to an individual. He doesn't say in verse 19, therefore brother or sister, but brethren. That's a group. He's writing to a bunch of people. And then he follows that up with language-- I'm just going to call them-- there's three heads of lettuce in this paragraph, verse 20. "Let us draw near with a true heart." Sorry about the pun. I couldn't help it. That's the first head of lettuce-- "let us draw near with a true heart." Verse 23, "let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering." Verse 24, "let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works."

He's not writing to an individual. He's writing to a group. That's because that's what Christians do. We gather together in groups. Now back then, it was severe. Back then, 2000 years ago, especially in Jerusalem, if you converted to Christ you would lose your job. Because jobs were controlled by the temple enterprise. The Sadducees controlled the employment of that city. So you had believers losing their employment, losing their social status. So the church became their new family.

I remember exactly what that was like. I remember in 1973-- that's how long ago I became a Christian. I was raised in a very religious home. My parents didn't understand, my brothers didn't understand why I'm in this new religious thing. I was being ostracized. I was being pressured. But I discovered other believers. They were my new family. I could talk to them about things I couldn't talk to my parents about at the time. And I felt accepted by them. It was the Church family.

A computer cannot do that for you. Social media cannot do that for you. A podcast cannot do that for you. And what a computer and social media and a podcast can not do for you, the Church of Jesus Christ should do for you. Should be able to provide for you a family. We live in a culture where we can connect instantaneously on our devices. And that's a good thing. To some degree it's a good thing. I take advantage of it. I was tuning in last weekend via my phone to be able to watch live the services. Thank God for that technology.

However, the same technology that can be a blessing can also make us isolated. Because we're just interacting with a screen, not another group of humans. We're not-- I in that case wasn't gathering together. It's good for a quick fix, but it shouldn't be an ongoing practice. It can serve, in fact, to isolate.

So I love Psalm 68 where it calls God a father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, who sets the solitary in families. In the body of Christ, I have discovered a wonderful family. And you hear the language-- and its intentional language-- every week when you come in the building. We say, welcome home. Welcome to God's family. We're glad you're part of the family. We want to live life together. We want to do this together. We want to be able to pray for you.

So the Church of Jesus Christ will never be outdated. I hear the death knell-- people are saying the Church of Jesus Christ is going away. Or the modern church is a thing of the past. The Church of Jesus Christ will never be outdated as long as it stays biblical. If it doesn't stay biblical, then it's just another club. It might as well be the Elks Club or whatever. Just a social gathering. But if it stays biblical, it becomes a spiritual family that gets you through life.

So we gather. We gather together. There's great value in leaving our homes and gathering together. It's called fellowship. Fellowship can never be done alone. You can't download an app called The Fellowship app. You can't really have true interaction without being able to see body language, hear the tone of a voice, feel the reaction of people around you. You can't download on your computer Intimacy 3.0. It doesn't work that way.

There is an old Jewish proverb-- not a biblical proverb, but a Jewish proverb, a saying, that said a friendless man-- a man without friends-- a friendless man is like the right hand bereft of the left hand. And I would say that an isolated Christian is like a right hand bereft of the left hand. We need each other and we need proximity to each other. We need friends. We need family. So we gather regularly for that reason.

I remember reading an account of Adolf Hitler written by a man who probably, of all the people that knew him, would be considered his closest friend. His name was Albert Speer. And Albert Speer wrote about Adolf Hitler that Hitler was an unusual person in that he did not respond to friendship. He was incapable of having a close friend. And he became very, very isolated because of that.

So we need each other. We need a family. We need proximity. Because when we gather together we're sharing time. We're sharing attention. We're sharing, like this weekend, in projects. We believe in this project and we believe in it strongly enough to share it together. So number one, we meet regularly.

Second thing we are to love lavishly. The text in verse 24 says, "and let us consider one another in order to stir up love." I think love needs to be stirred up. Because we live in a society that stirs up hate all the time. I cannot get on social media, I cannot get on television, without seeing people spewing out hatred-- usually one political party toward another. And we feel the division and hatred. It gets stirred up. We gather together in order to stir up love.

I was reading a musical website, of all things, the other day. And something really just stood out to me. It said that in their estimation, 100 million love songs have been recorded in history. Now, recording is not that old of a practice, so that really grabbed my attention. They said at least 100 million love songs have been recorded.

But the article went on to say the lasting love songs, the ones we really remember, are about heartbreak. The ones that really stand the test of time are songs written about heartache. In other words, the love songs that people remember are about the failure of love, not the success of love.

So I'm here to tell us that can't be our legacy. Our legacy should be of the success of love rather than the failure of love. Remember a few weeks ago when we were in Romans 12, we dealt with that passage, "let love be without hypocrisy." And we mentioned the different words for love, and that we in America use the same word for lots of different expressions of love. I love you sweetheart, I love you Jesus, I love pizza. And we said it can't be pizza love. It has to be real love, authentic love.

So we gather regularly, we love lavishly. It's what we do. It's who we are. A group of researchers was asking a group of children to define love. Between the ages of four and eight years old-- you say, you're not going to get a really great definition. No, but you're going to get some pretty funny ones, right? Tell us, in your view, what is love? What does that mean?

Of all of the kids that weighed in on what love is, there was one very insightful young man who said, in defining love, he said, when my grandmother got arthritis she couldn't bend over and pain her toenails any longer. So my grandpa painted her toenails, even when he got arthritis. And he said, that is love. And I will say that boy is correct. That is love. That is an expression of lavish love. That is a verb. That is an action.

And I think that you and I should begin to evaluate our lives by love. Let me explain. Evaluate your life by love. Not how many people love you, but by how many people you love. By how many people you love.

Did you know that Jesus, our Lord, gave the world permission to judge us? He said this-- by this shall all men know you are my disciples, by the love you have one for another. Why? Why would he do that? Why would he give the unbelieving oral permission to judge us? Because here's the secret-- love makes an invisible God now visible.

See, we have a problem. We talk about God to an unbelieving world the unbeliever goes, I can't see God. Where is God? You, by love, authentic love, demonstrate, make visible, the invisible God. The apostle John in his letter, first John chapter 4 verse 12, wrote these words, "no one has ever seen God. But if you love each other, then God lives in us and his love is brought to full expression in us."

So think of it this way-- love is a billboard that causes drivers to get attention. So love is the billboard that allows passerbys to focus on that, remember it, and know there is a God and he is real. Because I have seen his love demonstrated by this group of people.

So this is who we are and what we do. We meet regularly. We love lavishly. And third, we act decisively. I'm going back to verse 24-- I'm only reading two verses-- where it says, "let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works." And good works. Stir up love and good works. The words stir up means to motivate or to spiritually stimulate.

The value of gathering together-- and I think the value of this once a year thing called the Love Bomb-- is to stir up, stimulate spiritually, the good work of showing lavish love at a decisive moment for the very least of these children impacted by terrorism. Now there's a very real thing called compassion fatigue. Experts know that people who hear about needs on an ongoing basis get it-- compassion fatigue. Or caregivers who are giving care to one person over a long period of time get fatigued, get tired out showing compassion.

And I know that we are given throughout a year a number of different things that contribute to-- Operation Christmas Child, Feed New Mexico Kids, presents at Christmas time for underprivileged children in our community, and Reload Love, Love Bomb, et cetera. I know that. I'm praying we will not get compassion fatigue.

But could it be that because we have this tendency that Jesus gave a command to love. He said-- do remember this? A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you. Now when you hear that you might think, a command to love? Doesn't that go against the very definition of love? Isn't love something that just spontaneously arises out of the emotion?

No. It doesn't. Anybody who has been married more than a year knows this. Anybody who has children knows this. Anybody who has a friend or a neighbor knows this. You don't always feel the same. But you make a commitment. You make a decision to act a certain way toward a person. So he gives a command. A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another.

So in showing love to the least of these-- and in this case, children impacted by terror-- it's not that you're going to feel warm fuzzies following you all the days of your life, or have the sun shining and the birds chirping. More than a feeling-- though it does feel good to give. You're going to be able to know that you are showing, demonstrating, the love of God to somebody in this world who needs to hear it, needs to feel it, needs to see it. And in many cases, who has never heard of Jesus before, but will because of your lavish love.

So we gather. We meet regularly. We love lavishly. We act decisively.

I'm joined by some friends-- actually, family members. My wife and my son Nate.

[APPLAUSE]

Lenya, this really was your idea, Reload Love. It's the Lord's idea, but he gave it to you in the shower.

Because that's not creepy.

Yeah. OK. So Reload Love has been going on for about six years now. We've been talking about this. We do this Love Bomb thing now. This is like the fifth or sixth time that we've done it. What has Reload Love done?

That was a very pregnant pause.

It was a long pause on purpose. What is it you've actually done?

Well, I'm blessed to say we've built 40 playgrounds-- so that's pretty amazing-- in five years. This is our sixth Love Bomb. Also we've distributed over a $1 million, thank you to you, with Reload Love. It's incredible. We've been in so many countries that we are thrilled. We've ended Jordan, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Bulgaria, Lebanon.

Iraq. Did you say that?

Sounds like you're an underachiever.

I think I did.

Jordan, Iraq?

Yes. Yes. So anyway, we're just so honored, so thrilled that God has taken us far beyond anything we expected. Exceedingly, abundantly above all we've asked or hoped.

So I just want a quick backtrack. When you were in that shower, it's funny because you have, over the years, seen things on the news and you've reacted to them. Back in 2001 when the towers fell in New York City, you came up with this thing called the Mercy Band, which were these silver bands with the names of people who had fallen in the towers, and asked people to pray for the families. And that was wildly successful in that CNN picked it up and it was put on news outlets and people around the country were moved by that.

So what was it that got you involved with this project?

Well, first of all, I know a lot of us avoid the news, but I watch the news because I pray when I watch the news. So I would encourage you to go back to watching the news, but pray while you're watching it. And so during this season for Reload Love, Bashar Assad of Syria had dropped Sarin gas on several villages. And I saw the children coughing and gagging. And that was supposed to be a red line. And then ISIS came across into Iraq and committed genocide with the Yazidi people, chasing them up this mountain. And they were trapped, and they were trying to bring helicopters in and moms were trying to put babies on the helicopter.

And I just thought if those were my children or my grandchildren, I would pray that someone would help them, that someone would do something. And alone we feel like we can't do much. But I think together we can do enormous things. That's the point of the body of Christ. That together we're better. Where two or more are gathered in his name, he's in the midst and the gates of hell can't stand against it.

So I think I was thinking how could we get people joined together. And if you wore a piece of jewelry or a t-shirt or made a donation that maybe we could make a big difference together. And I do believe God's love is the answer, and that God's love can break down all evil no matter where it is.

So I think that those were my thoughts. And the idea was I wonder if we could get spent bullet casings, turn them into brass charms, and help kids impacted by terror. And here we are six years later.

And so you were on the Mike Huckabee show recently, and he asked you this question-- he said, what is a love bomb? And you explained it as--

A virtual fundraiser that you didn't have to actually be here to do this. And so often it's hard to get people together at the same time, the same place. So near Valentine's Day, whatever weekend falls close, it's virtual that no matter where you are. And we're really grateful because this church supports so much, but we have partners everywhere. And so there are partners in other states that are donating and giving at this time. We have some ground breakers who are constant donors to Reload Love. So it's an opportunity that we can spread outside the borders of our church.

There are other churches that are involved in this right?

Yes. Yes.

Wow. In different states. Nate, you were raised up in our family, raised in this church. You've traveled to the mission field on a number of different outreaches. But recently you went with mom over to Thailand and you saw the opportunity. And so this year we're making a pivot because of that. Actually because of something you thought about and saw. Tell me your impression when you went there.

Yeah. We did make a big pivot. And I had an opportunity when we were invited to partner with this organization called Stadia to go to Brazil and see the work they were doing out there. And they had this vision, this group Stadia, that every child should have a church. And so their goal is to plan as many churches in war torn third world countries across the globe so that every child can experience the life changing message of Jesus Christ and what that can bring into their lives. And for just $30,000 churches can sponsor other churches to be built.

And so I brought this vision to my mom and I said, hey, what if we expand the vision of Reload Love from just building playgrounds to building churches? What if we desire to create places, safe spaces, for kids to hear the gospel? To have their eternal lives change, their destination altered from hell to heaven? To experience the life changing power of the gospel and what that brings to their lives. And she immediately jumped on board.

And so we decided to go back to where we first started to Burma and to Thailand and create these churches. So we went with a very singular vision and a focus, I think, of we're going to build churches. That's our goal. And I think God just kind of blew the doors open on what we thought we were there for. And they began to share with us their vision to send out evangelist. For $9,100 we can support an evangelist for three years. Can you imagine living on $9,100 for three years? And yet they're able to do that.

What blew me away is the heart that they had, though. The fact that they are going to do this work. They are so called to this work. Whether we support them or not, they're going to do this work. Whether we send them money or not, they're going to spread the gospel and reach these people groups. They feel called to this place. These aren't white missionaries coming from the United States to go live in Burma and Thailand. These are people who grew up in these villages, grew up in these communities, grew up amongst these people. And they have a desire to reach their people. And whether they starve and die or not, they're going to do this work.

And I was just impressed with this verse, that how beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel. But that verse also says, how can they go unless they're sent? And I was looking at us and the resources we have, the ways that God is blessed and the things that God has given to us. And I said, man, a lot of us can't go. We'd love to go. But we can send. And the reward in heaven is just as great for those who are sending as those who are going.

And so just this heart-- man, think about it. This weekend we had this opportunity to raise $150,000 to build three churches where kids can be loved on and cared for and hear the gospel. Where communities can be changed. We can send out three evangelists to reach unreached people groups who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ. We can fill in a pit to create homes for families to live on the church grounds. We can provide a car so that a pastor can take kids to the hospital and to and from school. We have the opportunity to make that impact. And every single dollar that we're giving this weekend is going directly towards making that goal possible.

I love that. The video we saw, the video that you played, that wasn't some stock footage we found online of, oh, these kids are really going to make people feel bad and want to give money. Those are the actual kids and pastors that we're having an opportunity to make a difference within their lives. And I just think that's incredible.

And I might just say, as a pastor this is an exciting pivot. Because we love the idea that it's-- yeah we love playgrounds and we love working with kids, but the fact that we're going to leave something lasting and life giving for generations to come, to train these kids up in a school, to give a church in this area, a gospel witness-- this is something that a lot of us are going to get behind.

And something we can have a lasting role and a part to play. This isn't just a one time thing where we're going to be building these--

You know, explain that.

These churches-- are a big part of this for us was creating opportunity for our church to be involved within the lives of these pastors and communities for many, many years to come. And you know, my wife was just texting me during that video. And she said, I want to go-- sad cry emoji. I want to love on the babies so bad. And that's been the response since we started Reload Love. There's been so many people who've said, I want to go. I want to love on these kids.

Part of the reason why we decided to go back to Burma and Thailand this year and build these churches and we want to, in 2020 and beyond, planned many, many mission trips for you guys to be able to go visit these places, to visit these kids. We want to play in a men's group where we can get contractors out there to help build these churches. We want to get kids groups to go out there and do VBS for these churches. We want to plan youth trips for the youth to go out and do drama and evangelize in these villages and these cities. We want you to be a part of this.

And part of the great part about Stadia is they're going to send us updates every few months of how many people's lives are being changed by these evangelists, how many converts have come. We're going to get pictures and videos from these pastors. So we're going to have a lasting impact and a sustainable role in helping these churches grow and being a part of the lives of these kids and these families in these communities as we move forward.

Wouldn't it be great to actually sit in a building that we built? And sit in there for a service and watch the faces of people who gather for worship and be a part of those kids?

To give you a little texture and highlight of the people that we met-- and you can have that experience in the foyer, and meet some of these amazing men and pastors. They're not getting called to Scottsdale, Arizona or Vail, Colorado. One of the couples we met had been working outside where a tsunami had hit. And there is a trash dump in Thailand that some of the people who are refugees that didn't make it to a camp or they didn't make it on the outskirts of a farm, the only place left was to pitch their homes on trash dumps.

And this couple felt called to go help those people. I don't know if you're called to go to a trash dump, but they were called. The day we got there they were on bicycles, and they had these big pots of rice and food to take to the kids. And find them, who would not be getting an education. They would not be getting a warm meal. They would just be really lost in so many ways.

And so the men that we're having the opportunity to meet are laying it all on the line. Also the organization we work with have identified literally unreached people groups. There are boat people in Burma who are way off the beaten path and they think they found a people group that have never heard of Jesus before. And so one of the missionaries we're sending is really going to a group of people that have not heard the gospel.

And then finally Moses, one of the guys we met-- you can't leave a refugee camp when you live in Thailand. You have to stay where you are. You don't get a green card. You don't get a job. You get nothing. And so unless they import an education there, import-- so some people might sneak off the camp to maybe do odd jobs, clean someone's yard, clean their house, and try and bring money back to their family. But the day we pulled up to Moses and his area, there were police who had stopped those who went off to try and make money. And they can just be thugs. They can be like the mafia and take away the money from the refugees who are just trying to bring scraps home.

So they're entirely disadvantaged in a way that they don't have education. They don't have health care. They don't have any of the governmental opportunities that we might have here. And so Moses had this beat up truck that the brakes didn't work. And he would go pick up the kids in the villages and bring them down to go to school. And one of the last services we were able to raise the money to get Moses a new truck so that he can do that with the kids.

Yeah.

And what I love is you just brought up that evangelists we're sending out to these boat water tribes in Myanmar. One of the things I love-- we already said before-- is they're doing the work whether they get sponsored or not. This evangelist who we're going to have an opportunity to sponsor, he's already been out with this tribe, with this village, before he had sponsor, before he had anybody providing support. He's been trying to find a way to make this happen. And already there's been several families who have given their lives to the Lord and been baptized. And we have videos and pictures of this unreached people group, people who had never heard the name of Jesus, and God's already bringing about a change within their midst. And so we're so excited to be able to sponsor him and be a part of that lasting change.

Can we just given a note of explanation of those who study populations in the world, mission organizations that do this. They've identified 7,000 unreached people groups. What that means is less than 2% of those people are Christian, and there is no gospel witness in that culture. There are 7,000 such groups. The fact that we get to reach into some of these unreached people groups, sponsor evangelists, build churches-- it's like, sign me up.

And there's something biblical to that standpoint. Again, we are called this great commission. And we know that the Lord won't come back and won't return until everyone has heard and had the opportunity to hear. So we have this opportunity to literally usher in the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ by spreading the gospel to unreached people groups who've never heard the love of Jesus.

So once again, you can text-- even though we've already passed this out, people are watching this online-- and you can continue to give throughout this day. You can text reloadlove to 77977. If you want to go online ReloadLove.com. You could write a check-- I don't think you can write a cash.

I think it's illegal to write on cash.

Oh, and I think you can't print cash at your house, right?

That's illegal, too.

Yes. So if you want to write a check or put cash, you can make it payable to Reload Love. And we just want you to know that all those checks that come in that say Reload Love, we don't take a percentage of it for anything. We send it all--

100%.

100%. You know, one thing I think we didn't get to talk about, but the importance-- you know, people can say, well, why are you building buildings? Why are you building churches? But these buildings that we're having an opportunity to build, they make a big difference and an impact within these communities as well, because these buildings don't just act as a church. They really act as a hub for the entire community.

You just brought up--

A community center.

The people who are living in these refugee camps, they can't go out of the refugee camps. Which means that they can't go out and get work. They can't go out and get an education. They can't go out and get medical care. And these churches really act as a place for all these things to happen. Moses, who we had a chance to meet, had a group of American's come, a group of doctors and dentists, and trained Moses and a couple of the other pastors there how to do some routine dental procedures, and some not routine dental procedures. And actually Moses did a root canal on--

The pastor did a root canal for a congregant?

Actually it wasn't a congregant at the time, it was just somebody--

Anybody want to volunteer for that?

But again, that's the story of life change. At the time it wasn't a congregant, it was just a villager. And that villager ended up-- he and his entire family got saved because of this act of kindness that Moses was able to do. Another church that we went and visited there was a bunch of sewing machines there because sex trafficking is a huge problem in Thailand and Burma. So they're training girls how to get professions and do trades so that they can be protected from getting absorbed into the sex trafficking ring in Thailand.

And so really just incredible stories all through these churches of the impact that that building can make.

And maybe to break some of your wrong paradigms or thoughts-- a lot of people think Buddhists are so peaceful, and you know they're calm and meditate and that kind of thing. But in this Buddhist culture, it is the Buddhists that are creating genocide against these tribes. And so these pastors have been persecuted, beaten, and hurt and harmed by Buddhists as they're trying to survive. Pastor Moses, now that he's in Thailand, said, well, they say statistically Thailand is 100% Buddhist, but we like to say it's 99% now because of the work that we've been doing in Thailand. So it's really beautiful that these works are able to stand against something else and bring the gospel to, again, these really unreached people.

Hey, before we dismiss, there's somebody who really needs to be up here. She hasn't been during the whole service. But she really is such a part of this family, and that is Jenae. Jenae, come on up here for a moment please. Thank you. She gets embarrassed when I do this, but she has been such a love and support to me this last several weeks. Thank you.

Stand up here. Stay up here. Can we all stand?

We hope you enjoyed this special service from Calvary Church. We'd love to know how this message impacted you. Email us at mystory@calvarynm.church.

25 Years—A Divine Paradox
1 Corinthians 1:26-31
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Many of you know by now that these verses from Paul's first letter to the Corinthians have become my "life-text". They describe the paradox of a perfect God using imperfect vessels to carry His name and perform His work. Over the last twenty-five years I have both seen and experienced God’s faithfulness. Today we stand in awe of His great work among us, in us and through us. To God be the glory, great things HE has done!

Hebrews 9

All of us have experienced spiritual slump, when we just didn't feel like worshiping. But times like that provide the perfect opportunity to walk by faith not by sight and to experience sacrificial worship.

A Soft Pillow for a Tired Heart
Romans 8:28
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
We all remember where we were on September 11, 2001 when we heard the news of the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and the downed plane near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The terrorists who crashed these aircraft brought the deaths of nearly 3,000 people. Mass confusion, anger, despair, and depression predictably followed as survivors sought to frame so devastating an event. Ten years later, we remember September 11 to honor those who died, those who have fought in the war on terror, and especially to be reminded that in the midst of a conflict-filled world, we serve a God who works His good purposes and promises to one day eradicate evil.

Points about Prayer from the Sermon on the Mount
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Self reliance is esteemed in our culture - but it's not the example Jesus gives to us. In a life marked by continual prayer, the Son of God demonstrates His dependence on the Father. Let's consider what Jesus teaches about prayer and its role in our lives, remembering that prayer is a privilege, not a duty.

How Does Your GPS Work?
Proverbs 3:1-8
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
This passage in Proverbs is one of the most well-known and bestbeloved in the entire Bible. Believers have read it, memorized it, shared it, prayed over it, preached from it, and relied on it for centuries. Why is that so? It's simply because we all want to know God's will for our lives. Discovering God's will is one of the dominating pursuits for Christians. Let's see how it works.

The World's Most Important Comma
Isaiah 61:2
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
In Isaiah 61:2 we discover a tiny comma. This comma represents a 2,000-year period of time: the age of grace that we are currently living in. It is during this time that we have been saved; it's the church age, and world-wide evangelism is taking place. But we are just one day away from the end of that comma. One day that comma will become a period. At the end of that comma comes the rapture of the church and then the day of vengeance of our God on this earth.

iThirst
John 19:28-30

Message Summary
The world is filled with Apple's i-technology, which delivers on its promise to make connectivity and information readily accessible. But there is a deeper need within everyone, a thirst to be right with God, that no app or gadget can fulfill. How ironic that Jesus, the great Thirst-Quencher, would Himself be thirsty. It was part of the great exchange—His temporary thirst enabled yours to be quenched eternally!

Message Summary
The book of 1 Thessalonians is a letter from the apostle Paul to a young church in Thessalonica, whom he commended for their faith, love, and endurance. As we study the first ten verses of this book, we learn from their bold example what evangelism looks like and what the normal flow of the gospel is: it comes to us, works in us, and then comes from us.

Great Is Thy Faithfulness
Lamentations 3:22-31
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The prophet Jeremiah looked on as the city of Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed. But even as he mourned over the destruction of his city, he realized the living God was at work. In the same way, though our world is filled with a great amount of uncertainty, we can still find certainty in the Lord and confidently tell Him, "Great is Your faithfulness."

Living Life Together
Proverbs 18:1;Acts 2:41-47
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The word fellowship is one of the most overused and undervalued words in the church. More than a social activity, fellowship should be a spiritual activity in which we all take part. As we draw some principles from Scripture and learn from the example of the early church, we see that being in community is essential for spiritual health.

Jesus Loves Children
Matthew 19:13-15; James 1:26-27
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The most vulnerable among us are often children. Lacking the power and means to be anything except completely dependent on parents and society, they sometimes fall through the cracks. Today we look at how Jesus loved children and consider our mandate to care for those who are most helpless. Through this message, along with a special effort by Reload Love, we aim to bring God’s freedom to many more children around the world.

Skip Heitzig

Defying Normal
Daniel 1:8
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The Bible calls us to a holy defiance of the status quo—Paul the apostle said, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Romans 12:2). Perhaps no one in the Old Testament did this better than the prophet Daniel. In this message, we look at four truths about the Christian life and learn how Daniel was able to rise above his society to defy normal.

Christians and Politics
Jeremiah 29:1-13
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Don’t worry, I’m not preaching politics, nor am I endorsing a candidate today. I realize that both political parties go to church and that Christians have a wide variety of political notions. As a registered independent, I am aware of the flaws that exist on both sides, and so I am not taking sides today. But I want to call the body of Christ to be informed of the policies, engaged in the process, and active in the promotion of godly discourse. Furthermore, I am asking that we be united this week in prayer and fasting for this nation.

The Explosive Power of Real Love
John 13:34-35
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
We have the opportunity to show love to those who need the expression of love the most—those who have been hurt by the hatred of others. In countries scarred by past and recent terrorism, Reload Love is arming other believers with hope and healing in the name of Jesus. Today we will examine one of the most famous sayings Jesus ever spoke and explore three components of real love—what we should do, and then how and why we should do it. My prayer is that God’s love would be “poured out in our hearts” (Romans 5:5).

The Heart behind the Hand
Luke 15:1-7
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
None of us can reach everyone. We can’t touch and change every person in the world. But we can pray for, be patient with, love on, witness to, and reach just one. When we talk about our vision to reach the world, perhaps we need to think smaller. Maybe we should think about one person we can pursue for the glory of Jesus Christ. Today we consider that as we look at one of Jesus’ most famous parables: The Parable of the Lost Sheep.

Info
Message Summary
Today is a celebration. We celebrate what God has done through you! Your love for God, His Word, and His work are evident by your generous gifts of time, talent, and treasure. I encourage you to continue. In Jesus’ most famous of sermons, the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gave us the most practical ways to live unencumbered and fruitful lives.

2019 Year in Review
Joshua 4:1-8
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
The end of a year is a natural time to look back and thank God for what He has done in the past. As we pause to look back and look around, it's important to evaluate and commemorate what God has done in and through us and recalibrate our priorities. Then, we can look ahead and focus on the specifics of what God wants us to do in the future. Pastor Skip reminds us that God has proven Himself time and time again, so we can look to the future with great hope and anticipation. Watch the full service video here.
