It is important to know what we value. Yet, how do we measure that? Of course, the obvious place to look is a person’s checkbook: they value what they pay for. And in one sense that is true. But what about things that don’t necessarily require money (or much money at least)? How can you measure someone’s value of that? I ask all of this to get to this question: How much do you value Jesus and the free offer of the gospel to all, Jews and Gentiles? How can we answer that question? We could look at our checkbooks and that would give us some indication. We could look at our schedules and see how much time we give to Christ. We could check Sunday School attendance and ministry involvement as well. All of these would at least give us an idea of how much we value Jesus and the good news.

Five hundred years ago this Tuesday, Martin Luther put forward his disagreements with the Roman Catholic Church concerning the selling of indulgences. It did not seem like that big of a deal at the time, but looking back, it is hard to calculate the impact of that action for the Church. Being so removed from life before the Reformation, it is hard for us to even understand what it was like before Luther took his stand. But it is good for us to try and understand. It is good for us to remember what was at stake during the Protestant Reformation lest we take for granted the privileges we enjoy today (like all having bibles in our own language)! Our focus is not just Luther and the other reformers, who were all flawed like us. Our focus is the change that God brought about through their lives. Changes that we still enjoy.

The greatest need for the church today is to know God more. D. A. Carson says: “The one thing we most urgently need in Western Christendom is a deeper knowledge of God. We need to know God better.” What that means is that the greatest need for Trinity Baptist Church is to know God more. And what that means is that my greatest need and your greatest need is to know God more. So many things are important in life and important in the life of a local Church, but nothing is more important than knowing God and knowing Him more. If we pursue that goal with all that we are, then our lives will matter and our Church will have the greatest impact possible.

The promise of a future inheritance brings great hope for our present lives. The Bible’s teaching about Heaven is meant to give us great encouragement for the struggles we are daily facing. Paul ends his teaching on the resurrection with these words: Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your work is not in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58). Peter concludes his discussion of the coming day of the Lord with these words: Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness (2 Peter 3:11). And John’s book on the return of Christ was written as an encouragement to churches who were suffering persecution for the faith (see Revelation 2-3). All of these authors wrote about our future inheritance through faith in Jesus to give us hope for our present lives.

As followers of Jesus Christ, we must walk worthy of the gospel. Our belief impacts our behavior and our identity defines our practice. We see such an expectation in character clauses of contracts. A corporation expects an employee to behave in a way that complies with their standards. A university expects its coaches to do the same. These men and women are representatives of their particular institutions and as such, they are under contract to live a certain way. I experienced this gowing up. In my family, I was expected to act like a Marshall (which my father often explained in mostly unpleasant situations). In my school, I was expected to act appropriately as a basketball player (of course our school mascot made that ironic since we were the Rebels). At church, the youth were expected to not get too crazy on trips because it looked bad since we were normally riding around in a bus with “First Baptist Dover” plastered on the side. There was a clear connection between who I was (son, student, member) and how I was supposed to live.
