5 Ways to Glorify God This Summer (And 1 Way Not To)

You can feel it in the air. You can see the glimmer in others’ eyes. It’s coming. It’s almost here. Just a few more months, a few more weeks, a few more days. It’s coming. That sweet whisper of freedom — summertime.

Yes, there’s still some tests to pass and papers to write, but soon enough summer will be here. That glorious time when school is out, responsibilities lessen, and the open sky and water beckon us to come join them. (And remind me that it’s time for this red head to start bathing in sunblock again.) The days are longer, the sun is hotter, and adventure seems possible. What better time to renew yourself in running full-heartedly after God?

Yet sometimes, that’s not as easy as it seems. So here’s 5 practical ways to glorify God over the summer, and one pitfall to avoid.

1. Dig Into His Word

Yes, this is always at the top of these lists. But cliches become so because they’re true. While there’s never a bad time to read the Bible, summer gives us extra opportunity to do so. The sun is up earlier and down later, so use that extra time to soak in some scripture at the bookends of your day. That class period is empty now, so you can read an extra chapter.

But don’t be content with just scanning, just reading. Memorize, meditate on it, search out the meanings and cross-references of what you read. Show yourself to be a workman that does not need to be ashamed, who rightly handles the Word of truth. (2 Tim. 2:15) Join a Bible study or small group near you, a place that encourages you to dive deep in the everlasting truth.

 

2. Serve and Encourage His People

Often we think of service only in terms of the world, of those outside the church. But believers need encouragement too, and often more so, as we are ever embroiled in the battle for eternity. Take a friend out for ice cream and talk about spiritual things. See if that single mom needs someone to babysit for the day, or if the elderly gentleman needs someone to do his lawn. Invite all the youth in your church over for a volleyball game. Be like Stephanas, who was “addicted” to the ministry of the saints (1 Cor. 16:15).

My brother has made a habit of taking a spiritual leader in his life out to coffee every month or so. In doing so, he not only encourages them, but also is built up and grown himself.

 

3. Determine What You Believe, And How To Go Deeper

We aren’t meant to sit still in our spiritual journey. Stagnation in most anything means death. So let’s use this summer to grow, to learn, to mature. Read good books. Read hard books. Examine your position on current issues, and on old ones as well.

Determine to grow. Examine your life; where do you wish you were stronger? I want to learn more about prayer, so this summer I’m going to find books on it and do a study on it in my Bible reading.

“The proper motto is not ‘Be good, sweet maid, and let who can be clever,’ but ‘Be good sweet maid, and don’t forget that this involves being as clever as you can.’ God is no fonder of intellectual slackers than of any other slackers.” -C. S. Lewis

 

4. Declare the Gospel

I’ll admit, this one is hard for me. I can proclaim the Gospel when I’m teaching the Bible story to my kids at school (all 70 of them), but in normal, everyday life? That’s hard. And scary. So I’ve determined to improve this. The Gospel is of imperative, ultimate importance. So let’s stop hiding it, and star shining the light so all can see.

This summer you’re more likely to be around others. Use these opportunities to bring up spiritual topics. Work together with organizations that proclaim the Gospel. One of the best ways to do so is to:

 

5. Get Involved

All truth is practical. All love is practical. If your love doesn’t motivate you to act, it’s probably not very strong. Missions, pregnancy centers, and food pantries are almost always low staffed. Call your local one, and ask how you can help. Often what is needed is not more donations, but more volunteers to love on others.

And it’s amazing the changes your simple presence can create. Lives can be changed, hope can be renewed.

But in all our big work, we can be tempted to fall into something that certainly does not glorify God.

 

6: Don’t Idolize the Big Things Over the Small

Often we get caught up in wanting to do the big things. We want to be out preaching the Gospel in third-world countries, running awareness programs for human trafficking, or taking care of orphans in China. And those are good things which glorify God. But sometimes life sticks us behind counters working all summer, babysitting nephews and nieces, or taking care of sick relatives . And we forget that those are also good things which glorify God.

He has called us to be faithful right where we are. If we’re not careful, our longings to be doing the ‘big things’ can turn into envy and discontent. Just because we’re not on the front lines doesn’t mean we aren’t helping to win the war. How busy your summer is doesn’t equal how godly your summer is. Sometimes the most faithful thing you can do is to quietly and consistently serve those around you.

Summer is a time of sunshine and laughter, but in that, it’s easy to let the things of God slide. What if instead of living our summers with God as an afterthought, He was our only thought? What is the chief end of man? To glorify God and enjoy Him forever. So let’s make that our mission, even in the midst of summertime.

Earn Your Heroic Moment

I love movies. But what I really love is analyzing them, seeing if they present their heroes well.

Because the whole craft of storytelling enthralls me. Character arcs, the use of color, the weaving of themes and scores together — I’ve spent hours on YouTube watching video essay after video essay breaking down films and shows to better understand the finer points of this art.

And all this knowledge makes me enjoy movies more, because I can see the skill of the filmmaker as I watch. “There’s a repeat of that musical theme to remind us of that earlier choice. Oh, did you see that Dutch Tilt to put us on edge, to make us realize the danger? Look how the light only falls on half the hero’s face, symbolizing his pull between right and wrong.”

Earn Your Heroic Moment

But it can also lessen my enjoyment of movies. Because I can see where the tools are used barely, or not at all. Sloppy story telling, ex machina, set ups with no pay offs — they rather irritate me now, because I can’t help but see them.

Now, I’m not a filmmaker. I’m a writer. My tool isn’t the camera, it’s the pen. And I’m not even a writer of stories. I don’t weave narratives, I weave life lessons.

But in learning more about storytelling, I’m really learning more about Reality. Because good stories are only good stories if they reflect the truth. Not that they necessarily match the truth, because you can have good stories that take place in made up realms with made up beings and made up powers. But good stories reflect the deeper truth. They reveal a deeper reality than our eyes can see. A truth told well in film is a truth told well to us trying to understand our world, our lives, our place.

And one of the most persistent things in storytelling is the Hero. The one who sees the world as it is, but refuses to accept it; the one who could have just passively sat by, but chooses to step out; the one who has hard decisions, and yet decides to take them. And because almost every film has a hero, almost every film has heroic moment.

But the problem is, heroic moments are pretty hard for films to handle. Most movies will just throw in some big sacrificing-yourself moment (which we know won’t stick, because, come on, you’re not going to kill the protagonist), or big theatrical save with big inspiring music because the movie is telling you this is the big heroic moment — but you just don’t believe it. I’m sure you’ve watched a movie where the big climax is going on, and you’ve yawned. You don’t really care.

Why? Because it wasn’t earned. The hero didn’t make the choice to do the right thing, the plot did. Or it was easy for the hero, no struggle within himself to overcome. Or the hero’s actions weren’t built up by their past choices and beliefs. His moment was just given to him.

The Heroic Moment wasn’t one, because it was just something checked off in the movie-making box. “Ok, we have a protagonist, and obviously he must be the hero, so obviously he’s going to do the right thing.” But that’s lazy storytelling. Being heroic then comes easily to the character.  And that feels off to us.

Because we know heroism isn’t something that’s just a choice — it’s a character. We know that heroism isn’t something that can spring from a passive life.. Reality is hard. Reality is tiring. Reality doesn’t present you with just one moment to make the hard decision to do the right thing, it’s a never ending onslaught of choice after choice, day after day. The plot of life rarely makes you make the right decision; in fact, it usually spends all its labor trying to force you the other way.

No, the true Heroic moment comes where a hero has beliefs, meets with struggles both from others and inside of himself; and yet he still makes the right choice at the tipping point, still does the right thing at the right climatic time, and he does it because it is the right thing to do.

They step into No Man’s land. They stand up against the evil one. The push themselves out of their fears and insecurities, and do what needs to be done. Yes, the cinematography and rising swell of the musical score does help our emotions to soar. But the true reason why their stand or sacrifice moves us and feels real is because everything in who they are and in what they’ve done and in what they’ve experienced led them to be this Hero. And they chose it.

We love stories because they reflect truth — or perhaps what truth should be. And we want our lives to be stories, with us as the hero. But we know too that a hero isn’t made by one random act, or by the device of the plot. Heroes are heroes because they choose every day to do the right thing. And then they get up tomorrow and do it again.

And I don’t know what that looks like for you. Maybe your heroic moment is studying yet another chapter for that big test. Maybe it’s getting up yet again to the cries of, “MoooOOOooom!” Maybe it’s biting your tongue yet again at that infuriating coworker. Maybe it’s choosing joy yet again as everything tries to convince you otherwise. Maybe it’s trusting yet again that God will use this situation for good. But whatever it is, choose it. Choose to make the right choice, no matter if the whole world is telling you otherwise.

Maybe our tasks aren’t as big as fighting off attacking alien armies or standing against a corrupt dystopian government. But that doesn’t make them any less heroic. Today, fight off your fears, stand up against your insecurities, and do what is needed to be done.

Choose to do the right thing. Choose to love. Choose to forgive. Choose to trust. Choose to serve. Choose to glorify Him.

Everything of who God has made you to be and what you’ve experienced and what you’ve done has led you to today. So choose this day who ye will serve. Choose today to be on the Lord’s side. Choose, and go and do what He’s called you to do.

So today, and tomorrow, and the next day, let’s earn our heroic moment.

(And playing some inspirational music score won’t hurt either.)

Failing The 2017 Reading Challenge

I almost did it. I came so close. And yet, as the year dies, defeat looks me in the eye. Yes, I had many challenges fighting against me — several months rendered useless because my time was monopolized by ministry, and three months not even being home. But I had overcome them, I made up for what was lost, I was almost there, I almost made it — but didn’t. I didn’t complete my reading challenge. I only read 45 out of the 52-book goal that I attempted.

But all dramatics aside, my reading challenge wasn’t a failure in any sense. There’s never not a good time to read, and my commitment gave me a goal and accountability to be intentional about picking up heavy tome. Or slim e-reader, as the case may be.

Top Christian Books of 2017

Looking back now, I ran into some interesting adventures in Literary land.  I had a hurdle initially trying to even organize and label all the titles I read. Where do I file The Great Divorce? As fiction, or Christian living? How do I define The Story of Reality? I also read many things I didn’t enjoy this year (I’m looking at you, Steinbeck), things read solely because they are on the List-Of-Things-You-Are-Supposed-To-Read. I wonder if the List-Writers have ever read anything themselves. Yet, I also gave myself rein to read some light things solely for enjoyment. I found some new favorites. Good Christian dystopian fiction does actually exist. (There’s a sentence I truly believed I would never see.) I even read a book that hasn’t been published yet, as an alpha reader for a friend.

But the easy part of being a reader is the actual reading. The impossible part is answering the inevitable question. “Which was your favorite?” And I have forty-five to choose from. So, instead of attempting the impossible, I shall instead pick the cream of the crop, making both my task and my suggestions a bit more manageable.

So without further ado, here are my top 10 books from 2017

 

 

1: This Changes Everything: How the Gospel Transforms the Teen Years, by Jaquelle Crowe

This was my first book of the year, written by a first-time author, who just happened to be one of my first supporters in getting my first article published on Rebelution. So perhaps I’m a bit biased when I say this book is magnificent. But I’m not the only one. Winning both TGC’s award for best first-time author, as well as Christianity Today’s award of merit for best Children and Youth Book, This Changes Everything reminds us that we can’t just give God part of our life. Every single aspect of it, He declares dominion over; and what He lays claim to, He makes change to. I personally stayed up far into the night finishing this book in one sitting, because it was so very good!

 

 

2: One Thousand Gifts; A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Areby Ann Voskamp

I recognize that there are varying opinions on this book. But if nothing else, it reawakened my delight in the beauty that God is, and the beauty that should be our writing when we speak of Him.

 

 

3: Out of Time Series, by Nadine Brandes

Remember when I claimed good YA dystopian novels do exist? Remember when I claimed that good Christian YA dystopian novels exist? Well, here we are. I don’t remember why I picked up A Time to Die, but I remember doing so with the mindset of, “Well, this is Christian, so it’s probably going to be just some clean, cheesy, tolerable dystopian clichés with a few Bible verses thrown in.” Wrong. My expectations were subverted. The stakes were serious. And faith living in a dystopian future was handled thoughtfully and well.

 

 

4: Wars of the Realm Series, by Chuck Black

And while we’re on the subject of good Christian fiction that refuses to play to our expectations of Christian media and stereotypes, let’s talk about Chuck Black. If you haven’t read his Kingdom or Knights of Arrethtrae series yet; then sir, get thee to a library. Easy reads but none the less intriguing for it, The Wars of the Realm explores spiritual warfare from an interesting perspective — one of a non-Christian protagonist.

 

 

5: A Practical Guide to Culture: Helping the Next Generation Navigate Today’s Worldby Brett Kunkle and John Stonestreet

“What is cultural success? It’s a life lived like Hans and Sophie Scholl, deeply engaging the moment in which God has placed us and courageously navigating the threatening currents, knowing that we serve a cause, and a God, far greater than ourselves.” An excellent and expertly handled overview of life in our 21st Century, which you can read my full review of here.

 

6: Wordsmithy: Hot Tips for the Writing Lifeby Douglas Wilson

Is this the book recommended by all writers for all writers? Yes, yes it is. Does it deserve such acclaim? Yes, yes it does. I received it on Christmas, read through it the very next day, and promptly placed it on my read-every-year shelf.

 

 

7: What He Must Be: If He Wants to Marry My Daughter, by Voddie Baucham

If there’s anything more exciting, terrifying, confusing, and frustrating than navigating relationships and trying to find a spouse, I must not be old enough to know it. What He Must Be lays out some guidelines and challenges for young men in what they should be aiming for, young women in what they should be looking for, and parents in what they should be training for. To quote one of my favorite phrases from Pastor Baucham, “If you can’t say Amen, you oughta say Ouch.”

 

 

8: Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, by Nabeel Qureshi

You may have heard of Nabeel’s passing this last year, and read some powerful tributes. But much more powerful is his story. Part autobiography, part documentary of the clash between Islam and Christianity,Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus is a thought-provoking, laughter-making, tear-inducing journey following Nabeel to his conversion, with a convicting look at our own complacency and lack of passion for the Gospel. If you only read one biography, one book on Islam, or one book on apologetics in 2018, make it this one.

 

 

9: The Weight of Glory, by C. S. Lewis

This list would be amiss if I didn’t include at least one C. S. Lewis. I read five different books by Lewis this year; yes, I slacked off quite a bit. Even though I didn’t finish Weight of Glory before the end of 2017, it’s one I’ll always recommend, as I read through it yearly. It is not only an ever-masterful discussion of what glory really means (with thoughts on friendships, living in light of eternity, and others in the essays included with it) but also the book that made me sit back with eyes full of wonder and think “I want to be able to do that. To make beauty with words.” Also, it’s by C. S. Lewis. Enough said.

 

 

10: Tactics: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions, by Gregory Koukl

This is a book I recommend for everyone. Absolutely everyone should read it. And as all of my friends will tell you, I recommend it all the time. (To the point where it’s now an ongoing joke in our group.) Do you want to be able to engage people well? Read this book. Do you want to be able to understand and love others well? Read this book. Do you want to be able to deftly handle your apologetics? Read this book. Do you want to comfortably and gracefully have conversations about faith with others? Read this book. But perhaps I’m being too subtle with my hints. Seriously, you should read Tactics.

 

There were dozen of others books I’d like to talk about, but as Douglas Wilson taught me this year, know where to end.

Did you complete the 2017 reading challenge? What were your top books of the year?

Your Work Is Worth It

Your Work Is Worth It by Isabelle Ingalls

Do you know one of the hardest questions for those of us who have grown up in church? Not “Why do you dress like that?” or “That’s how you’re doing relationships? Really?” or “Why do you believe that?” No, the real, true, dreaded, impossible question.

“What’s your favorite Bible verse?”

Ok, perhaps I’m being a bit tongue-in-cheek. But this is still always a difficult question. How do you expect me to pick just one verse out of the entire Word? How can I love just one sentence of God’s story more than the others? It depends on my struggles at the moment. It depends on what I’m studying. It depends on what He’s teaching me. It depends on the month, the day, or the hour. Which is a blessing in a sense, proof that His Word is living and active, continuing to teach us throughout all of life. But that doesn’t make answering the question any easier.

However, there has been one passage this last year that has stayed very near the top of my list. (Notice, I said passage, rather than verse, so technically I’m still evading the question.)

“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” – 1 Corinthians 15:50-58

Because honestly, this last year has been exhausting. All of us have experienced this. We have basketball practices to make and get-togethers to schedule and papers to finish and doctors to call and finals to take — and we’re tired. We’ll soldier on through our weeks, but still inside of us we cry “How long?”

We know it shouldn’t be this hard. We know we shouldn’t have to struggle against so many sins and situations. We groan, just like the rest of Creation, waiting for everything to be made new. We look about us at this corruption, and long for the Something Better that is coming. All these attacks, fears, and hatred — we know it can’t go on like this. Our world is restless for restoration. All our own selfishness, weakness, and impatience — we know it can’t go on like this. We’re eager for the day when we will be made new.

At the moment, we feel surrounded by the darkness, punctuated only by the slow red-and-white flash of ambulance lights. Lost on these tilting plates, the world seems sliding faster and faster into chaos.

But it won’t always be this way.

So we’re waiting. We’re peeking ahead. Like a child standing on his tiptoes, we crane our necks and search with our eyes to catch the glimmer. Because we know it’s coming soon.

He promised.

And when it does, all our work, all this pain, all this hurt; it will have been worth it. We’ll dance in exultation, we’ll sing throughout eternity. Our wounds will be washed away. Our hurts will be healed. The long years of loneliness, the dark nights of sorrow, the hours of anguish; in that moment light will tear through the shroud, and all darkness will flee as the Son bursts forth in brilliance.

Death has been de-fanged. The grave has been robbed. What power does evil have? What rule has the darkness? God has given us the victory, in the most absurdly beautiful of ways — through His death. We know how the story of everything ends.

And because we know the end, we know how to respond now. We don’t have to fear the darkness. There’s no need to cave to the chaos. We know what we are fighting for, and what we are waiting for. An earth made new. The return of a King. An everlasting kingdom.

So, my brothers and sisters, be strong. Be brave. Don’t be swayed. Through the darkness, through the hurt, through the pain, always serve Him. Be a light, proclaiming His truth, and His hope. Because your work will be worth it.

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, immoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

This Isn’t Safe

This Isn't Safe by Isabelle Ingalls

This Isn’t Safe by Isabelle Ingalls

“Don’t you know who is the King of the Beasts? Aslan is a lion — the lion, the great lion.”

“Ooh!” said Susan… “Is he – quite safe?”

“Safe?”said Mr. Beaver… “Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” – The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe

I think often we echo Susan, asking if our God is harmless. Because we would like a Coke-Machine God. We can insert our prayers and good deeds, and ding! He spits out a comfy 9-to-5 job, a comfy white-picket house, and even a comfy Mercedes-Benz if we’re really spiritual. We want a talisman Jesus. We can sit Him up on our car dashboard for when we want a favor or a free parking spot, and aha! He lays out a road of good fortune. We want a Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free Lord. We can walk along our own merry way, but if we happen upon some hard times, someone’s sick, or a job is lost; we can pay attention to Him and whoosh! He shoos away all our troubles, just like the ending of all those Hallmark movies.

We’d like just a nice, beneficial God. He’s comfortable, easy, and safe.

But a God who decimates our comfort zones, who desecrates our personal idols, who demands our entire being? No. Thank. You.

Now, perhaps my appraisal sounds harsh or caricaturing, but is it really so untrue? We structure our lives, wishing and acting like God is just another thing we can schedule in. We’ll choose our friends based on similar viewpoints. We’ll choose our reading-list based on the bestseller list. We’ll choose our college based on numbers. We’ll choose our careers based on projected income. We’ll choose our churches based on music. But God has no place in our normal lives, except perhaps in throwing a few bills into the offering plate, because that’s the bit that we’ve assigned to Him.

If we’re not careful, we relegate God, we relegate our faith, to Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. He’s safe there, in His house. But if we brought Him home, brought Him back into our houses — who knows what would happen? Lions and kings stay in their own places, and please stay out of ours.

Because deep down we know He isn’t, He can’t be the comfortable, easy God we’d like. We’ve heard what He’s said. Deny it all. Forsake it all. Take up your cross. Lay down your life. And we’re not sure if we’re quite on board.

“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.” – C. S. Lewis

Miriam-Webster defines safe as “free from harm or risk.” And perhaps that describes the Jesus of the American Dream, the Jesus of our comfortable world and fantasies. But not the real one.

The real Jesus tells people to obey Him alone; and they get thrown into fiery furnaces and lions’ dens. The real Jesus tells people, “Follow Me,” and they lose friends and family and gain the hatred of their whole nation. The real Jesus tells people, “Go,” and they are lashed five times, shipwrecked three, and stoned once. (2 Cor. 11:24-25)

But He’s also worth it.

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” (Rom. 8:18) “Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.” (Phil. 3:8)

A small, submissive Jesus, who only ever does what we want — He’s no higher than us. He’s a genie, not God. A Jesus who only ever rewards us for good behavior — He’s no greater than us. He’s Santa Claus, not God. A Jesus who only ever has a place in our lives during calamities — He’s not loving to us. He’s a life vest, not God.

That is not the God I know. That is not the God that exists.

Jesus doesn’t always do what I want – because His ways are so much higher than mine. He is God. Jesus doesn’t ignore sin – instead, fully knowing the terrible cost, He took my sin, that I might have the righteousness of God through Him. He is God. Jesus doesn’t pop into my life only when I need a big miracle – He has claimed all of me as His own, and my life is now His. He is God.

This Christian life isn’t safe. But nothing worthwhile ever is. Yes, we might be more secure in our comfort zones, in these fences we’ve built. But a security that keeps us from the life God is calling us to — it’s a prison. A ship is safest in the harbor, but that’s not what ships are made for. When we step out in obedience to His Word, regardless of how safe the world might consider it, that’s when life truly begins.

He is the King of King and Lord of Lords who makes the mountains to tremble. (Rev. 19:16, Psa. 18:7) All things were created by Him, and for Him. (Col. 1:16) He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. (Rev. 22:13) Before Him every knee will bow, and every tongue will declare that He is Lord. (Phil 2:10-11) He alone is the One worth serving. He alone is the One worth following.

Even when it’s not safe.

He is Good. And He is the King.
