1 Samuel 8 - Adrian Lowe

Play
Read more

Continuing our series in the book of 1 Samuel, this week we took some time to hear what God has to say to us through 1 Samuel chapter 8. We read of Israel’s rejection of God as their King. For the sake of power and influence they abandon their call to be unique and different to the surrounding world and demand a king just like all the other surrounding nations. The prophet warns them of the troubles they will face as a consequence of their insistence on adopting a pagan order of government – ultimately they will lose the freedom that their forbears enjoyed when God delivered them from the last tyrannical pagan system of rule in the form of Pharaoh’s Kingship in Egypt.

Here is the article that Adrian mentions writing for Love Black Country: https://loveblackcountry.org.uk/blog/leadership-in-the-21st-century-church/

Gender by Adrian Lowe ' Made for love series'

Play

Genesis 1.27 says this: “God created man in his own image; in the  image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Our  gender is a gift of God in his good creation, which is part of what it  means to reflect the image of God. Yet our culture is seeking to erode  the difference between male and female, promoting gender fluidity and  choice. Rather than receiving the gift of a gendered existence, we are  seeking to define our own gender, or do away with the definition all  together. God has bounded us in gender and we seek to erase his  boundaries, as we do with all God’s boundaries.

But with what result? Does this lead to freedom, happiness and  fulfilment as is claimed? Or does it lead to increased bondage, despair  and the loss of any idea of who we are?

This is not the Christian vision for gender. The Christian vision includes at least the following:

Our gender is a gift to be treasured! Our maleness or femaleness  contains a richness from God that we can spend our lives discovering. We  affirm that men and women are different! Equally displaying the image  and glory of God, but in different ways. (this is one of the reasons why  the Christian vision is for heterosexual marriage – it is the  combination of male and female that together reflects the image of God,  not one on its own).

This difference is to be honoured and treasured. It must not be  submitted to culture, whether that is our current one or traditional  ones. We do not defend an antiquated Victorian image of a ‘women’s  place’ or ‘man’s work’. But neither do we accept the modern claim that  there are no differences of importance and no difference in the way male  and female lives should normally look.

In our given gendered condition. God has given us an important aspect  of our identity which is truly ours and can lead to freedom.

Complicated issues in this area, like those born with abnormal  bodies, gender dysphoria, etc. will be addressed in our special evening  on gender with Dr. Rick Thomas on 7th October.

How is your faith? by Adrian Lowe 7 July 2019

 Growing up in a Pentecostal church in the 70’s and 80’s ‘faith’ was a subject much talked about. I witnessed many great evangelists with a healing ministry, saw some remarkable miracles and always wished I had the same sort of faith that they had. Most of the time I felt like I was last in queue when the Lord handed out faith!  


When faith was talked about, often it was in the context of having faith for something. I recall reading a book about a famous Korean Pastor Yonngi Cho who prayed for a bicycle to visit remote villages to share the gospel. His experience, he wrote, taught him to be specific about what he wanted. He didn’t just want a bike, he wanted a red bike, and he even ‘by faith’ pictured the bike leaning against the wall of the small room he lived in. Guess what? He got his bike, and a red one at that! Later he went on to lead one of the largest churches in world. As a young believer I wanted that type of faith. Stories like these were both inspiring, and to honest, disabling! I felt that I could never have faith like his and in some ways this resulted in me feeling that I lacked faith.

Visiting Israel in 2017 whilst on Sabbatical was a transformational experience. My understanding of faith was one of the many things that underwent a transformation. Our guide, an articulate and very educated man shed enormous light on the many other ways the bible talks about faith.
My prayer is that after listening to what the bible has to say about faith you will walk away confident that you have more than you think you do!

Living in Freedom by Adrian Lowe

Play

What  is real freedom? Humanity for all time, in every age has been looking  for the answer to this question. Mankind is ‘hard-wired’ for freedom and  so it becomes the pursuit of every generation. But what is it? How do you find it? 

Many look for it in the abandonment of the perceived codes, rules and regulations of previous generations. Boundary-breaking is hailed as courageous and liberating. In the 18th century science took a massive leap forward and the age of reason was born. The conventions of a tight religious explanation of existence were jettisoned as science discovered something more plausible and well-reasoned. Romanticism, an artistic, literary, musical and intellectual movement of the early 19th century rejected the stale, stuffy, restricting world of reason and industrialisation for the celebration of nature, beauty, and imagination. And so it goes on through the centuries! In the post war years of the 50’s and 60’s we saw sweeping cultural changes. Many social, moral and economic conventions were challenged in the pursuit of greater social and economic freedom and liberty. Not all bad but certainly not all good! 

So, is freedom the absence of boundaries? Is the health and wholeness of human life best experienced by the absence of social moral and ethical codes? Or is our obsession with boundary-breaking a ticket back to Egypt and therefore slavery, rather than to a land of promise, freedom and liberty? 

On  Sunday we will explore God’s plan for our freedom as His people,  revealed in the last half of chapter 4 of Ephesians. Come and listen to a  short talk on what true freedom looked like for the believers in  Ephesus and how that plan includes us today!
