“Ask the Lord of the Harvest”

David and Barbara SommersChurch News

Over forty years ago within His overall sovereign plan, God initiated significant and surprising changes in geopolitical realities that eventually made open various opportunities here in Richmond for many young Chinese professionals, college students and post-doctorate scholars.  Concurrently, God was preparing two individuals to harvest from that future crop even before they lived near the harvest field.  Some thirty years ago, God was bringing sight of that harvest field to His two prepared servants. About twenty years ago, the two called to harvest ventured into the field that God had prepared for them in the form of Bible studies with Chinese scholars on the campus of VCU.  About seventeen years ago, those endeavors in obedience to God’s call became the full-time Chinese ministry that has heartened this fellowship with professions of faith from those who had previously been “…separate from Christ…without hope and without God…” to the praise of His Glorious Name!

Geoff and Eunice Chan’s passion to reach their Chinese brethren has been readily evident to Barb and I for almost as long as we have known them. I recall a dinner together beside the Swift Creek Reservoir when Geoff became even more sober-minded than the typically sober-minded Geoff, and he asked for our prayers regarding his taking early retirement in order that he and Eunice could more fully engage in this unique harvest field. His zeal was to make Christ known to those who knew Him not. His concern was the limited time he had to make disciples of individual scholars before they returned home to China.

Beyond our friendship, Barb and I have been privileged to serve under the ministry God had given Geoff and Eunice.  We have been privileged with multiple opportunities to talk with Chinese scholars about our Lord Jesus and witness His Spirit quickening some otherwise hardened hearts. We have watched God bless his committed servants with an unexpected harvest in our local field. As Paul prays “Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!”

This Sunday we will be singing a song familiar to our Chinese brothers & sisters in Mandarin and in English.

The God Who Speaks

Paul DreillingChurch News

The first statement in Immanuel’s statement of doctrine reads “The Holy Scriptures: We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God, and our guide to faith and practice.” That statement forms the basis of what our church believes and how we practice our faith. Throughout our church’s 133 year history, the Bible has been our anchor in a sea of changing beliefs.

There is a new documentary on the Bible, The God Who Speaks, and their website explains, “There is a war raging around us – in society, in our churches, and in our homes. It is not a battle over marriage, race, or the sexual revolution. Rather, it is a battle for the truth. Is God real? Does He speak, and if so, how would we know? While many churches are faithfully proclaiming the truths found in Scripture, others have lost confidence in the Bible’s divine authorship.”

The God Who Speaks is a 90-minute documentary that traces the evidence of the Bible’s authority through interviews with some of the world’s most respected biblical scholars. This film answers common objections about the Bible’s reliability and equips believers to confidently base their lives on the power of God’s Word.”  You can view the trailer at: http://thegodwhospeaks.org/

Church-Based Theological Education

Michael WilburnChurch News

Dear Immanuel Family,

Some of you noticed on the sermon card that I’ll be out of the pulpit for the next five weeks. It’s true. I am thankful for the elders granting me a short sabbatical to give full attention to the research phase of my Ph.D. dissertation. I am grateful to the church staff for picking up the slack in my absence. And I praise God for Dr. Daniel Davey’s willingness to commute from Virginia Beach weekly and preach through the book of Jonah. With the stellar help of elders, the staff, and Dr. Davey you may not miss me.

What is a sabbatical? It’s a period of paid leave for study, travel, or rest. Sabbaticals are a necessity for today’s pastoral ministry. The burdens are too great and sustained to forego breaks between seasons of labor. In this instance, I am gathering research data. The topic is Church-Based Theological Education (CBTE). In short, I’m researching seminaries under a single church’s influence and located on a church’s property. At least twenty CBTE institutions offer degrees in North America. My particular study will determine the educational philosophy, church proximity, and academic standards among CBTE institutions. Our pastors are deeply influenced by these seminaries. Pastor Mike Srisam-ang graduated from The Master’s Seminary (Grace Community Church), and I graduated from Virginia Beach Theological Seminary (Colonial Baptist Church).

I’m spending the majority of my time in Daniels, WV at our family home. Our cat, Pilgrim, tagged along to keep me company. It’s cold on the mountain, snowing twice in the first five days. I joined the YMCA to exercise. And occasionally make excursions to Starbucks or Panera Bread. Otherwise, I’m plodding along at the kitchen table.

While I’m gone, please add the following needs to your prayer reminder: (1) Strength for Sarah, Chloe, Titus, and Noelle while I’m gone. Encourage them when you see them at church. (2) Diligence and focus. Ask the Lord to give me energy and joy for prolonged hours of interaction, interviewing, and editing. (3) Access to institutions. Ask to Lord to open doors so that a majority of CBTE institutions grant permission and give interviews. A high response rate increases the validity and reliability of the research. (4) That the research will benefit and encourage theological education in the local church.

Blessings,

Michael L Wilburn

Know Your Enemy

Tom SmithMen's Ministry

As a student of history and military conflict and battles throughout time, there are two things that stand out to me that are required for victory:

KNOWING THE ENEMY – Throughout history, identifying and knowing the enemy was key to winning a battle. Often the enemy could be identified by external appearances such as a different color of style of uniform. But as time progressed, it became more and more difficult to identify the enemy because those clear indicators were disguised as a means of trickery and deception.
KNOWING THE ENEMY’S STRATEGY AND TACTICS – When America was involved in World War II, the methods used to fight on the continent of Europe were completely different from those used to fight on the islands and seas of the South Pacific. Our military had to adjust both their techniques and tools to the enemy they were fighting.

Today, whether we realize it our not, WE are in a tremendous battle every single day. While we know who the enemy is – Satan – he always disguises himself with trickery and deception, so we don’t recognize him right away, if at all. This was true with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and it is true of you and I today in America in 2018. And Satan disguises himself and adjusts his tactics for each of us individually to specifically target our unique areas of weakness and vulnerability. What works on the chink in my armor may not work on yours and vice versa. Satan knows our individual weaknesses.

 

 

 

The Apostle Paul knew this and tells us about who the enemy is and how to prepare to battle him in Ephesians 6:10-14. He knew that our enemy is “a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44) and Paul tells us how to arm ourselves for battle. Peter also knew this and told us to “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8).

 

In our Men’s Ministry this spring, (starting Wednesday, Feb 7th) we will be doing an 8-week study from Ephesians 6 called “VICTORY IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE: A FIELD GUIDE FOR BATTLE”. I know I have many weaknesses and flaws. Satan knows this too.  As a believer in Jesus Christ and as one who is so grateful for His love and grace and mercy, I personally need to prepare for battle every single day to stay strong in Him who has already won the victory! And I do not like being lied to, tricked, deceived and devoured by the enemy!! Praise be to God for giving us a battle plan in his Word!

 

Men – join with me and other men for this exciting time together as we sharpen one another for the battle!

Connection Correction

Tom SmithMen's Ministry

Growing up in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, my Dad owned a TV and appliance repair business. One of the things my Dad taught me was how to do the basics when it came to repairing things. He also let me take apart things and try to get them back together with no pieces left over – things like old washers, lawnmowers, radios, etc. I quickly learned that if Part A did not properly connect to Part B, then Part C or D or E would not work either, and the whole outcome and purpose of the device was useless. I would often find that very small “disconnect” could totally stop a radio, washing machine or a lawnmower engine. Those little connections mattered a lot.

In our lives, this principle has TREMENDOUS application and impact on not only us, but on those we love and those with whom we come in contact every day. Our Men’s Ministry group was recently reminded of this fact in a study we did called “Watch Your Mouth” by Dr. Tony Evans. Over the course of our 4-week study, we were reminded that even though our mouth may not be physically connected to our heart, what is IN our heart will definitely affect what comes OUT of our mouth – no matter how much we try to cover it or disguise it. The relationship between the heart and mouth is mentioned many times in God’s Word. In fact, In Luke 6:45, Jesus Himself said “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.”

So how do we reset the connection between this beast called the heart, which Jeremiah 17:9 says is “deceitful above all things, and desperately sick” so that its output through our mouths doesn’t hurt and damage those around us? ONLY by relying on God to clean and repair the “old nature” settings in us. Dr. Evans encouraged us to daily read, pray and meditate on Psalm 19:14 – “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Many of us men have been challenged to try this and are finding that focusing on pleasing our Lord through confession and repentance and cleaning out our hearts, has a TREMENDOUS impact on our mouths! Remember, even the little connections matter a lot.

The connection between our heart and our mouth is so important and is something that can produce both great joy and great sorrow.  My prayer is that all the “words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart” be pleasing to Him who is my Rock and my Redeemer!

Big God for Small People

Women's MinistryWomen's Ministry

I recently sat through a training at work on the topic of something called existential-humanistic therapy.  The speaker, a psychologist and psychotherapist, made this statement in relation to the paradox of human existence: “We’re food for worms and soaring with angels at the same time.  That’s our crazy condition.”

I was struck by this.  In a sense, his insight is consistent with a biblical theology of humanity: the lowliness and magnitude of being human.

How do we grasp these two extremes? How do we balance being made out of dirt with being made in the image of God?  How do we reconcile the utter insignificance of being one in 7.6 billion people with the utter significance of being one unique individual, purposefully created by God?

This spring, Women’s Ministry will be facilitating two different studies with one unifying theme: God uses people to accomplish His purposes.  On Friday mornings, ladies of Immanuel are invited to participate in a video series by Beth Moore entitled, David: Seeking a Heart Like His.  On Wednesday nights, various women from the church will be teaching through a series called Ordinary Women and their Extraordinary God.  Both of these studies will focus on individuals who had strengths and weaknesses, who knew joys and sorrows.  And while these individuals may not have been all that similar, they had one thing in common – they were inspiringly small.  One small person, from one small town, in one small country, on a planet that is one small speck orbiting a star that is just another small speck in the galaxy of stars… And amidst all of that smallness, God used these people in these places to tell His big story of redemption.

Join us, ladies, as we watch God’s one story unfold through many individual stories. Be amazed, not by the people, but by the God who loved and used the people to glorify Himself.  Be encouraged, in times of feeling lost and little, with this great wonder: the same Maker of the universe who cared about them, cares about you.  He is a big God for small people.

Remembrance Service

Paul DreillingEvents

Remembrance Service

The writer of Hebrews encouraged his readers by a summary of the lives of a number of the Old Testament patriarchs like Abraham & Moses. “By faith” they trusted in God and were used greatly.  After this list of triumphs of the faith, the writer says,“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a CLOUD OF WITNESSES, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:1)

God is still adding to this cloud of witnesses.  This Sunday evening we will have a “Remembrance Service” to remember some of our church family who went home to be with the Lord in 2017.  Each one of them uniquely created by God and precious to the Lord and to us. We know the Lord wants to hear us share the memories we have of these folks.  Please come join us for this time to remember.

18 Ways to Edify in 2018

Michael WilburnChurch Blog

When the Bible speaks of the deepest sense of encouragement it uses the word “edify.” Romans 14:19 (NKJV) says, “Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.” The ESV Bible substitutes the word “edify” with its meaning, “to build up.” Either translation gives a clear command for Christians to actively encourage other Christians, especially in the local church. “Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing” (1 Thess 5:11; also see Eph 4:16).

So how can we do this well? Hallmark doesn’t sell Edification Cards. Shouldn’t encouragement be more than saying “thank you” and posting “Happy birthday”? What simple words or actions will build up someone’s countenance? Think of everyday interactions as a touch. What touch will make someone look up not down, move forward not backward, and feel good not bad?

Here is a short list just to get you started:

  1. When you thank someone, start with “I thank God for you because…”
  2. Ask for advice from someone God has gifted in a special area
  3. Repost on Twitter anything that encouraged you
  4. Use your emojis wisely, and with so many to choose from, certainly some can build up
  5. Drop Krispy Kreme doughnuts off at the church office 🙄
  6. Send random text message words of appreciation
  7. Hold off on criticism until it’s absolutely necessary and truly helpful
  8. When someone shares a need pray for them on the spot in their presence
  9. Follow-up prayer requests with a “how’d that turn out?” sometime later
  10. Attend events you’re not required to attend
  11. Be generous with your “likes” on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media
  12. When you look for a good seat, look for someone sitting alone
  13. Answer the phone with “how can I help?”
  14. Post Scripture on social media. See Danny Wahlquist’s Facebook page for awesome examples!
  15. Share Immanuel’s Facebook posts
  16. Ask an open-ended question to start a conversation like, “How was your day off?”
  17. Volunteer before being asked
  18. Welcome edification as a gift. Tell the giver how it encouraged you in a timely way

What can you add to the list? Post your suggestions to Immanuel’s Facebook page HERE

We trust that your home will be filled with joyful memories this Christmas as we remember what God did for us by sending his Son, Jesus. One of my favorite Christmas songs written recently and sung by Chris Rice welcomes Jesus into our world.

Below are the lyrics:

Tears are falling, hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God
You’ve been promised, we’ve been waiting
Welcome Holy Child, Welcome Holy Child

Hope that You don’t mind our manger
How I wish we could have known
But long-awaited Holy Stranger
Make Yourself at home
Please make Yourself at home

Bring Your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven’s silence
Welcome to our world, welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born, unto us is born

So wrap our injured flesh around You
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sins and make us holy
Perfect Son of God, perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world

Watch Here.
