-Buno Sa Murphy Sa Outreach Sa pamamagitan ng Jon Allis

murphyslaw Wrestling With Murphy In Outreach By Jon Allis Nagkaroon ako ng kasiyahan ng pulong Steve Sjogren sa isang pagpupulong na inisponsor siya sa ang Kings Island Inn sa 1989. Dapat ko pa kilala ng isang bagay ay up kapag Nawala ko ang isa sa aking mga 2 front ngipin pagse-set up ang sound equipment (isang kuwento para sa isa pang oras, ngunit huwag mag-atubiling upang ipasok ang iyong mga paboritong probinsyano magtawa dito. Iyon ay nagsimulang mahaba ang pagkakaibigan isang dekada ni. Ang coffee namin ibinabahagi spurred mahusay na pag-uusap at mga kuwento mula sa Steve. Ang kanyang pagkahilig nakatulong sa akin parehong makilala kung saan ang Diyos ay na-develop ng puso ng isang lingkod sa akin at inspirasyon sa akin upang simulan sinasadya nangungunang iba na pag-ibig doon sa paligid sa amin. Narito ang isa sa mga lessons ko natutunan na nagpapanatili sa akin sa laro 25 taon na ang lumipas.

Ito ay isang bagay ko unang narinig mula sa Steve, ngunit ito ay nilalaro out sa isang paraan o ibang sa bawat proyekto ko na lumahok sa. "Kapag ililipat sa lingkod magbahagi ng Ebanghelyo ikaw mauntog sa Murphy ang Batas ... walang, ikaw ay ilipat sa Murphy ng bansa!"

Mukhang na mapagmahal ang iyong kapwa bilang iyong sarili ay talagang mahirap - na ang lahat na maaaring magkamali ay may gawi na magkamali. Ito ay kakaiba - hindi ito mukhang mahirap kaya kapag si Jesus uusapang tungkol sa mapagmahal ang aming mga kapitbahay.

Ako talaga naisip ko ay pagkuha off madaling! Sa bawat oras na pinili naming pinagkakatiwalaan ni Jesus at nagpapatakbo sa mga kaloob ng Espiritu, Mahal (yes isahan, dahil walang pasubali bawat tagasunod ni Jesus ay nakakakuha ng isang ito!) ang kaaway ay doon upang matiyak na hindi namin nais na ito. Kung ginawa namin tulad nito, maaari naming kilalanin ng Diyos kapangyarihan ay nagsiwalat sa pag-ibig, at maaari naming simulan upang ibahagi ito tulad nito na ginawa ng isang pagkakaiba at talagang baguhin ang mundo. Upang maiwasan ito, aming mga kaaway tinitiyak na Murphy ang Batas ay powerfully sa trabaho sa pamamagitan ng iba't-ibang mga pangyayari, ordinansa, personalities and attitudes from the get go so we are frustrated from the get go.

Murphy showed up at the very first outreach I did with Steve at the Cincinnati Vineyard. They were hosting a free carwash (that actually was free—back in the day when that was novel) at Jenny’s Sports Bar on Route 42. I jumped in with both feet and started working hard. I got hot enough that spring day to shed my t-shirt (not nearly as terrifying an image 25 taon na ang nakalipas) as I pressed into washing fenders, hoods and bumpers. As we began to clean up I started looking for my white t-shirt, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I finally wandered over to the rag pile and there it was. Someone had used it to polish brake dust from at least a dozen rims. I wrung it out and considered this reward for my labor. Later though 2 stories circulated that made me realize that I would gladly give my shirt every time we served to see God’s love revealed like that.

That experience helped me realize that to deal with Mr. Murphy and not give up we must be both hard and soft. We must be hard to keep serving for the long haul. Hard to the outreach realities of circumstances, ordinansa, personalities and attitudes that Murphy employs. Dealing with Murphy requires that we develop a callous over the part of our heart that wants to be right, wants to be in control, wants to look good and most of all be successful. The bad news is that callous is developed the way all good callouses are – through repeatedly being pressed down, pushed on, rubbed and scraped. In a deep sense we need to become hard to the awkward feelings of being foolish, unappreciated and embarrassed. I believe this sacrifice is a pleasing fragrance to our God. If we can grow hard, develop this ability to embrace Murphy, we can enjoy a long season of loving our community into relationship with Jesus.

We must also stay soft. Soft to the voices of those we are serving and those we are serving with. The breath of fresh air for me in this discipline of reaching out in service is the stories that capture a moment in the transformation process. Make time to listen every time you are serving. Whether it is a debrief over food after an event with your co-laborers or stopping your “kindness” to listen to one of the people you are working so hard to reach. Their stories are the catalog of the Holy Spirit’s work in and through you, in a tangible way, the very coming of His kingdom. Don’t be distracted by your work and miss this sweet fruit. As these stories are shared, they create energy for us to continue to reach out.

Love Strong.
