Rank #1: You gotta be it to feel it - statement #11 from Jesus

Podcast cover
Read more
“I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!” John 15:11

Remember how we’ve talked about one of the results of abiding in Jesus and obeying his commands is joy? The fruit of the true disciple is joy, and frankly, no matter what.

Jesus wants you to treat others just like he treats you. It’s what shows people around you that you’re a true disciple of Jesus.  The bible uses the word here for joy in two ways. It can either be in feeling or in action.

You are expressing a positive intention about a past or future action/event...

Even how we remember can be covered in joy if we remain in Jesus. And most certainly how we plan to act on some offense in the future matters to Jesus.

How does Jesus want you to love others…

Be filled with JOY, no matter what. Two things stood out to me in trying to understand this statement:  

Be joy, in your actions, thoughts and attitude. That kind of freedom is the result of loving Jesus.

Expect joy, treat others in joy because you know that whatever is happening will change and be redeemed somehow by Jesus.

Is 51:11 Those who have been ransomed by the LORD will return. They will enter Jerusalem singing, crowned with everlasting joy. Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be filled with joy and gladness.

Isaiah 41:28 I will open up rivers for them on the high plateaus. I will give them fountains of water in the valleys. I will fill the desert with pools of water. Rivers fed by springs will flow across the parched ground.

Isaiah 55:12 You will live in joy and peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands!

John 7:38 Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”

Rank #8: The dark secret of social media

Podcast cover

Let’s talk about the social behind social media, what you think you know may surprise you, and what you don’t...well that’s what we’re gonna talk about today. Along with a new segment we are calling “A Completely Unrelated Distraction of the Day” where I will share with you fun, strange, inspirational and often times totally unbelievable news from around the world.  Wait till you hear what a pizza delivery guy did for someone in hospice. Amy Morin, PsychologyToday.com wrote, "Throughout the last couple of decades, our ability to connect with people around the globe has exploded. Initially, the internet allowed us to chat, join newsgroups, or email anyone in the world. The invention of cellphones allowed us to talk to people when we were away from our desks and outside of our homes.  Then, social networks allowed us to connect with our neighbors, childhood pals, college buddies, and co—workers with a click of a button. Finally, smartphones made it easier than ever to connect with anyone we wanted around the clock.  So you'd think we'd be feeling good about our social lives, right? After all, never in the history of the universe has communicating with people been so simple and accessible."

Rank #13: Be irresistible

Podcast cover
Read more

A recent study has revealed that people who are more socially connected generally lead healthier lives than those who are more isolated. This is all well and good, but the question we are going to raise today is, how do we become someone others want to get to know? Stay tuned to find out how. If you want to be the kind of person other people are attracted to, then you need to become that person for someone else. The trap we tend to fall into is we tend to isolate and close ourselves off out of a fear of being rejected. Instead of becoming more and more isolated, make the extra effort to be the person you wish others were for you. Be thankful, kind, loving and serving to others and I promise, you will immediately see a difference in all your relationships.

Rank #19: You know what you want soooo - statement #14 from Jesus

Podcast cover
Read more
“Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.” Matthew 7:12

In chapter 7:1-12 Jesus is addressing your attitude toward others and God, specifically being judgmental.

There’s two types of judging:

Hypocritica

Healthy

Once you get your own junk, how you approach others about theirs will be different, more compassionate and understanding.

You know that God is the actual judge and you are merely trying to help out a fellow disciple of Jesus.

How does Jesus want you to love others?

Positive acts of love defeat a judgmental spirit.

This one statement is a grand summary of all that Jesus taught about relationships with others.

He wants you to be

Compassionate

Forgiving

Understanding

Empathic

Frankly! All the things you are wanting from others!

It’s really about turning your complaints about other people and how they are treating you into acts of love for them.  

How is this possible? Trusting in Jesus that he will empower you to pull it off.  Think of it as a miracle, because it is.
