Contentment
Apr 14, 2021
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:12 – 13, NIV
 
Contentment. I used to consider it a pessimistic term. Give me joy, excitement, and ecstatic any day over simple “contentment;” it has always seemed so neutral. Paul on the other hand saw the beauty in it. As a believer we’ll have wants, desires, and wishes just as anyone else in the flesh does. The attractive thing about being transformed by the Gospel is that abundant life means you know you are not in need of those things. It means you have a shalom type of peace in the middle of circumstantial chaos. It means you have grace. It means you have the propensity for love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control. You are content in all.
 
To be transformed by the Gospel means that decisions are made that revere Christ as Lord of your life. This in fact is quite contrary to the rest of the world. It looks like consistently turning to the Word of God for direction, guided by the Holy Spirit, and finding that obedience actually produces joy.
 
As I think of you, my church family, today I am praying that you would find the true gift in contentedness. I pray that you’d be able to take whatever circumstance the Lord has providentially given you right now and see that you are able to do all things because it is Christ who gives you strength. Even if “all things” means going without a want, desire, or wish. Even if it means hope deferred. Even if it means worldly chaos.
 
I pray as well that because we are marked by contentedness and abundant life that the Gospel, as offensive as it is, would be attractive to those who know us and see how we walk through trials. Content. Loved. Transformed.
 
As a quick reminder, this Sunday is John 3:16 day, the Gospel will very specifically be shared with all. Who are you inviting as your guest? No really. . . I’d love for you to tell me! (  or 256-412-4240)
 
Joyfully,

Born Again
Apr 07, 2021

John 3:3 “Truly I tell you, unless someone is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

As I was reading this week I read something that struck me, and I have not been able to get it off my mind because this is so true and I don’t think we even realize we do it. In Discovering the Mission of God, the author says, “Much contemporary American preaching targets the shallowest level—behavior. It assumes that changing behavior will produce lasting change. The Lord Jesus never taught or acted that way, however. He believed that the heart (the seat of basic assumptions and allegiances, the worldview) was the fount of life and the seat of all true change, thus his insistence to Nicodemus on the “new birth”. He knew that all lasting change begins at the core and radiates outward, affecting behavior.”

We seem to have this backwards in churches today! We focus on behavior modification and make sure we teach our kids how to “behave” instead of teaching them how to be born again. We pray that they “act good” in public instead of praying that the Holy Spirit convicts them of their sins and saves them. We praise them for being “good” instead of sharing the reality that our righteous acts are as filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6) and that nothing good dwells in us (Romans 7:18). Our children, the people in our community, the ones in our churches need to hear us teach the good news of salvation not behavior modification! The good news of salvation is this:

Sin entered this world through man and every day we prove we are sinners because we choose to sin (Genesis 3; Rom. 3:23)
Because of our sin we deserve death and an eternity in hell. (Rom. 6:23)
Christ loved us so much that while we were still enemies, He died for us. (Rom. 5:8)
The Bible tells us it is by grace through faith that we are saved (Eph. 2:8-9)
All we have to do to be saved is confess Jesus as Lord (repent of your sins and surrender your life to Him to do what He pleases with you) and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead (believe Jesus is who the scripture says He is and that His blood shed on the cross is all we need for forgiveness of our sins) and the Bible says we WILL BE SAVED! (Rom. 10:9-10)

Lasting change only happens when God opens our eyes to our sin, and we see our desperate need for Him! When we begin a relationship with Christ and give Him control of our lives, then and only then, will we see true change in our lives! The Bible says when we are saved that we are new creations and everything about us will begin to change. If you care about somebody share the greatest news ever with them!

“For I passed on to you as most important what I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He raised again on the third day according to the Scriptures” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Holy Week
Mar 31, 2021

The daffodils and tulips are blooming! The red buds and dogwoods are showing their splendor once again! New lives are hatching and being born all around us! At last – my favorite season is here – SPRING! A long-awaited time when all of nature seems to burst forth in magnificent beauty.  It is a time when that which appears to be dead comes to life again. Not only are the warmth and beauty the reasons for my rejoicing; this is also the time of my favorite holiday – Easter! This week, Holy Week, once again we are reminded of the reason for our Faith and the basis for our Hope. Two days from now, our minds will focus on the cross – the wooden form on which Jesus gave His life in suffering and pain that we are not capable of fully grasping. But just as God created the dogwoods, oaks, maples and assortment of trees that are putting on their new green leaves and beautiful blooms, God created the tree from which the cross was made. This was no surprise to Him. As the song reminds us:

 

               Nothing took His life. With love He gave it.

               He was crucified on a tree that He created.

               With great love for man God stayed with His plan.

               And He grew the tree so that we might go free.

               He grew the tree that He knew would be

               Used to make the old rugged cross.

 

And then, four days from now – HALLELUJAH! HE AROSE! He was victorious over sin, death, and the grave. We will rejoice and celebrate as THIS is the essence of who we are as Christians.

And we will reflect on another time over 2000 years ago when One who appeared to be dead forever came to life again for eternity. Max Lucado summarizes this transaction in his book In the Grip of Grace:

 

               Ponder the achievement of God.

               He doesn’t condone our sin,

               nor does He compromise His standard.

               He doesn’t ignore our rebellion,

               nor does He relax his demands.

               Rather than dismiss our sin,

               He assumes our sin and incredibly sentences himself.

               God’s holiness is honored.

               Our sin is punished . . . and we are redeemed.

               God does what we cannot do so we can be

               what we dare not dream: perfect before God.

 

Happy Easter Woodmont Family and Friends!

Unexpected Life
Mar 24, 2021
Life is full of unexpected blessings....answered prayers...."coincidental" situations....chance meetings....unexplained happenings....and lessons learned.
 
All this points us to Him and can cause us to wonder why. Don't you find it comforting to remember that we have a heavenly Father who knows all from beginning to end...who sees all...and who has a plan for our life that is for good?
 
For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Value of Worship
Mar 10, 2021
On March 22, 2020, we had our first of many online-only worship services. It is hard to believe a year has passed, and yet, it also feels like a lifetime ago. We’ve had to adapt a lot this past year in every area of life, and not all of it has been easy. The first Wednesday night that I met with a handful of people to pre-record the worship service for March 22 was hard. Singing into a dark empty room being recorded challenged me as a person and as a worshiper. Yet week after week I got a little more comfortable with the process, but it never seemed quite right. 
 
I recently asked our Worship Ministry Team to consider what we value about worship at Woodmont. After this past year, one of the things I value most is worshiping with other believers TOGETHER. Worship is so much more than music, vocal teams, choirs, instrumentalists, hymns, and worship songs. We should strive to worship God in all that we do, but there is something special about the people of God gathering together to declare the greatness of God and in gratitude for all that He has done for us, surrender ourselves to Him. 
 
As you have slowly returned to in-person worship at Woodmont what has been missing in our gatherings is returning…YOU. I hope you value as much as I do all of us being together to worship our great King and Savior Jesus Christ. There is nothing like it on this side of heaven. And when we get there I pray that we are prepared to worship our King for all of eternity. 
 
This Sunday, the worship ministry will introduce a new song, Goodness of God(Click title to listen to song) I pray that we can look back over this last year and see the goodness and faithfulness of our God. 
 
“Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me all the days of my life…Psalm 23:6 (Christian Standard Bible)
 
 
Looking forward to worshiping with you Sunday,
 
Ryan
