Christ Follower Today and Everyday

December 26, 2012

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul? (Matthew 16:24-26 ESV)

How ironic for Christ to speak these words to His disciples. There is Christ on His journey to the Cross of Calvary, the ultimate sacrifice for God’s creation, and He is imparting knowledge not only to the disciples, but to you and I as well. Thankfully, Christ is preparing us for the future without Him walking among us. The disciples didn’t see it initially, but you and I see it clearly thanks to the scriptures.

Cross2BearAt the beginning and closing of each academic school year a cross to lead the way. As a student leader this is my cross to bear both figuratively and literally. Thus the picture to the right (credits to Mrs. Meyer). I think it is safe to say taking up our cross plays out in every part of our lives. It plays out in how we Witness to each other regardless of who is looking. It plays out in our acts of Mercy to our neighbors. It plays out in every facet of our Lives Together.

I often find that when we hear this scriptural text we equate the negative aspects of the life of the Christian; persecution, torment, and death. Allow me to offer yet another way to look at this text, a more positive way in light of the Christian life. Picking up our own crosses to follow Christ is linked directly to the various vocations in life.

Christ calls us and that call in creation is doing works (acts of mercy) for one’s neighbor. Luther often speaks about various vocations which range from your job to life in the family. In other words, in every place and vocation that you serve, you are to live out your faith with such work that serves others. This is work not done to earn favor with God, but to glorify God to the fullest. What do you know it is even scriptural that we see picking up our crosses and live this way…

And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:28-31 ESV).

Picking up our respective crosses means living out our faithfulness to the Scriptures and Confessions. It means being unwavering servants to Christ the Church, and all of God’s creation. It means we are to be responsive to the contemporary context of the world by being lights of the Gospel in the ever growing darkness. It especially means we are to do everything in excellence to the glory of God (in other words, no half stepping when it comes to the work in the service of God and our neighbors).

Picking up our crosses comes with negative aspects, but that should never be our focus. Our focus lies in the Cross. Our focus is sustained through the sure promise of the Second Coming. Pickup up our cross means our focus is always on someone other than ourselves.

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul? For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done. Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.” (Matthew 16:24-28 ESV)

Picking up our cross to follow Christ means to deny oneself. Your lives in Christ are to be lived for your neighbor. That my friends is the meaning of picking a cross and following Christ.

Maybe you’ve seen it?  The bumper sticker uses the Muslim crescent, the peace symbol, a symbol for gay rights, the David’s star, the pagan pentagram, the Taoist ying-yang, and the Christian cross to spell out the word “coexist.”  The message?  “Can’t we all just get along since we’re not all that different?”

Last weekend I saw another version that used similar symbols to spell out the word “contradict.”  Written underneath: “They can’t all be true – John 14:6.”

One of my friends on facebook shared this and got some blowback from his friends.  Some said, “Why is it that YOUR truth is the truth?”  “How can you use words written by lots of guys over centuries and reinterpreted by others for their own ends to prove your point?”  My friend did an excellent job of pointing his friends back to the Scriptures, which say plainly, “Jesus is the way,” and…

Call Day Post by Rev. Schmidt

May 1, 2012

A very fitting blog posts on Call Day from Rev. Schmidt.

Originally posted on Such a time as this - Esther 4:14:

On Wednesday, April 25, 2007, I sat in the Chapel of St. Timothy and St. Titus on the campus of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis and patiently waited to hear the words: Michael Schmidt – Kansas District – Peace Lutheran Church – Natoma, Kansas.

Prior to that moment, I had never been to Kansas, never thought I would live in Kansas, and never even heard of Natoma.  Prior to that moment, I was a typical east coast person who thought Kansas consisted of Kansas City, Wichita, and Topeka, and that was it; but now, I was the newest resident of the state, and I would reside at least 3 hours west of Wichita and Topeka, and 6 hours west of Kansas City.

However, despite what so many say, my experience that night was not typical.  Both the St. Louis and the Fort Wayne seminary will quote ad nausea Isaiah 6:8…

Thoughts on Daily postings

March 6, 2012

I’ve been tinkering with the idea of each day, blogging about one of the pericope readings from the 3 year series for the upcoming Sunday. I wrote down a format for the week that follows a little something like this…

Monday – Psalm
Tuesday – Old Testament
Wednesday – Epistle
Thursday – Gospel
Friday – Lectionary Summary and Suggested readings from the Book of Concord

That would be a bit of work in itself to accomplish, so stay tuned to see if I actually make time to do it.

Resources

Logos has digitized thousands of dollars-worth of print books consisting of millions of pages that fit nicely onto your laptop. BibleWorks has made language, diagram, and exegetical work so quick and easy that one is able to wrestle with the text itself longer before reading what others have said about it. Logos is always adding new products to their ever expanding library. They also run sales from time to time and offer what they call pre-pub sales in which you can purchase new titles for a much cheaper price than what the product will regularly run. BibleWorks only offers a handful of add-ins because their subject matter is much smaller than that of Logos.

If you compare the add-ins that they have in common, the base price is cheaper at BibleWorks. If you factor in the CSL discount (ask IT) on Logos, then they are almost dead even. Head-to-head, I would give the advantage to Logos because of the wider audience that they appeal to and the quantitatively more add-ins overall.

Bible/Word Study

Logos has similar functions in terms of exegesis and bible study tools that BibleWorks has. Logos certainly has more study tools about the bible than BibleWorks. However, I personally believe that if one is studying the Bible, he or she should wrestle more with the text rather than seek another’s understanding of what the Bible is saying. BibleWorks is much more equipped for intense Bible study than Logos.

Usability

At first, Bibleworks 8 is difficult to use and Logos is pretty much ready to go. However, there is a learning curve to both. This again boils down to what you want and are looking for in Bible Software. I would give the early advantage to Logos and the learned advantage to BibleWorks.

Strengths and Weaknesses

BibleWorks 8

BibleWorks is strong in terms of the original language resources that come as part of its base package. It contains, for example, the Juoun-Muraoka Hebrew Grammar, the Waltke and O’Connor Hebrew Syntax, and the Wallace Greek Grammar as part of its base package. The optional add-on modules available from BibleWorks are all related to original language research. BibleWorks is a no-frills program, and this no-frills approach makes it affordable. BibleWorks has an incredibly fast response time. It does searches of the biblical texts in milliseconds and gives you instant information from lexicons and grammars. In my opinion, it can’t be touched in terms of speed of access to lots of exegetical data.

The main weakness of BibleWorks is that it does not come in a Mac version. However, it can be run on a Mac by using software such as Parallels Desktop, but ideally, it could be offered in both a PC and Mac version. BibleWorks also does not yet have the syntax search capabilities available on Logos. The format for BibleWorks resources is poor. You cannot mark them up or take notes in them. BibleWorks has a lot of great resources, but they are very limited in what they offer in terms of types and number of resources. They have stepped it up recently, but are still far from being in the same league as Logos. I love having hundreds of commentaries as electronic resources. I use them daily.

Logos 4

Logos’s resources are great and enable you to do about as much to them as you can to your own print books—and more. You can underline, highlight in lots of different colors, and apply a limitless number of markups. You can also add notes within the resources. In addition, you can change the font and font size for easier reading. Logos is also the only program that currently has any kind of syntax search capability for the original languages. The Logos interface is one of the most intuitive of the two. It resembles a basic website interface. The amount and kind of resources is very helpful. To be able to do a search and see results in original language resources, commentaries, sermon illustration books, etc. is a strong point. There are between 6000 and 7000+ resources available for Logos (The number actually grows daily). Logos cannot be touched in terms of the sheer amount of great resources that they offer. There’s no real alternative for one interested in building a primarily digital library. The syntax tools are great. They are going to significantly change the study of the original language texts—both (1) in what they can do that couldn’t be done before and (2) in saving time doing more efficiently what could be done before only very inefficiently.

The one of the main weaknesses of Logos is the cost. Even with the available discounts, the high price could be out of the reach of many pastors and seminary students who are trying to make ends meet. Some of which is being combated by offering payment plans. The other weakness of Logos is a byproduct of one of its strengths – namely the large number of resources. In the first place, most users will probably find a large number of these resources to be extraneous. Second, the large number of resources slows down searches – sometimes dramatically. Another weakness is speed, but this is only due to the vast amount of resources included with each package.

Recommendations:

For the seminarian or pastor who is using a PC, I would recommend investing long term in Logos. It has all of the tools of BibleWorks with the added benefit of commentaries, word studies, and research resources. My next follow up blog will include some of the resources that may be of assistance for LCMS parishioners, teachers, deaconesses, seminarians, and pastors.
