Its Not about Me Journal
Max Lucado - 2004
In his latest book this message, though still present, has moved to the background. A Copernican revolution is in order, Lucado says: it is time to understand that life revolves around God, not ourselves. The God he describes is neither Santa Claus nor a kindly, reassuring grandpa. He is a God of glory and holiness, eternal and unchanging. "To seek God's glory is to pray, 'Thicken the air with your presence; make it misty with your majesty. Part heaven's drapes, and let your nature spill forth. God, show us God.' " Our role, once we have seen God's glory, is simply to reflect it. We do this by proclaiming his message, using our bodies the way he intended, trusting him in the midst of suffering and acknowledging him as the author of our success. Even our salvation "showcases God's mercy. It makes nothing of [our] effort but everything of his." Sterner generations of Christians memorized the answer to the first question in the Westminster Shorter Catechism: "Man's chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever." Lucado brings this concept to life with his trademark breezy style, good humor, homey anecdotes and passion. His fans may be surprised by this new emphasis, but they will not be disappointed.

Defeating Your Adversary in the Court of Heaven

Or is there power in the verdicts that come from the court of heaven? Many Christians are surprised when they first hear that the courts of heaven are real. Many more have been shocked at how their lives have changed after appearing in court to face their adversary. The courts are places where the legal proceedings of heaven are carried out. Cases are brought before a judge, witnesses testify and rulings are handed down. In an earthly court, when an accusation is brought against you and it goes unanswered, even if you're innocent, it can cause legal problems. Whenever your're accused, you must appear to answer the accusation. Otherwise the court must find you guilty. Many of us are being accused right now by an adversary and aren't aware of it.
