Opening narration is a clip from the video “The Secrets of the Ark of the Covenant” by the Megalim Institute. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG2MJFePJmo”God Can Take Care of Himself”

1 Samuel 5:1-12

INTRODUCTION: In the old testament of the bible, the ark of the covenant was a wooden chest overlaid with gold about four feet long, two feet wide and two feet high. Its cover was made of pure gold with two cherubim hammered out of gold on top. The ark contained the gold jar of manna, Aaron’s staff that had budded, and the stone tablets containing the Ten Commandments.

But the ark was more than just a chest. The ark was the visible symbol of God’s presence among the Israelites. So when the Israelites lost the ark in battle, it was as if they had lost God himself. Today I want look at what happened when the Philistines brought the ark back to their own land. May we all be inspired today by this episode of the Encouragers United Podcast!

Many thanks to RayFowler.com for the inspiration for this teaching.

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an unprecedented event in our lifetime. As of my recording today, April 6th, 2020, 336,000 cases are recorded in the United States, with 9655 deaths occurring, unfortunately more happening everyday. These numbers and the associated warnings from local, state and federal government officials are extremely stressful for people. Fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults, teens and children. However, successfully coping with this stress and the changes well will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger in the long run.

After a short devotional from Psalm 9, Pastor Charlie interviews Oliva Horner, a professional fitness and gymnastics coach, aspiring chiropractic student, and YouTube content creator. Olivia gives her advice and encouragement on coping with the stress that quarantine and COVID-19 can cause.

In the summer of 2017, my youngest daughter Leah and I were able to participate in a short term missions trip to San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico. It's a city just across the national border from Yuma, Arizona. It's a desert, it's hot, and it was a completely new experience for Leah and me. We stayed at a combined church and school facility called Eli House, assisting the staff there with educational and recreational activities, facility improvement projects, etc. I am not a bi-lingual person-- and being immersed in a completely different culture was an extremely powerful experience for me.

Encouragement isn't just a one way street. It's not just all about me helping you. This is the concept that Jesus is communicating. Peter-- if you won't be vulnerable enough to let me do this-- you actually can't be in fellowship the way we should be... Much like a doctor or surgeon, who we must trust to perform the skilled cut, removal, and stitching required to remove a tumor or my appendix-- we must trust Jesus to serve us-- and there's something about this that is a key to us then living and serving him.

This absolutely applies to all our relationships. How are you allowing those around you-- family, friends, fellow church members, neighbors, coworkers-- to actually express their God-giving gifts and talents to serve you? Are you aware of the fact that Jesus, after taking on the position of the servant-- washing the feet of the disciples-- simply states, "now go and do this to each other-- Love the way I have loved you." You see, I have made a career and found an identity in serving others-- but I am not Christ... I'm a part of a body. I'm in need-- and God wants to use others to minister to me. If you and I want to really make a difference-- and I mean really make a difference for Jesus in our world-- in our time in this life-- we may have to stop, take a deep breath, and let someone else serve us, let someone know about our struggles and our pain, letting them "serve" us-- minister to us, Love us. Accepting God's grace and forgiveness, His love is one thing-- but it doesn't just stop there-- those closest to us will be used by God to continue his work of sanctification and growth in us.

Open scene is from the 1992 motion picture: "A league of their own" Starring Tom Hanks and Geena Davis Jeremiah 1:4-10 NIV The Call of Jeremiah

4 The word of the Lord came to me, saying,

5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

6 “Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.”

7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.

9 Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”

The Emmaus Road Luke 24:13-35

The Resurrection story continues as two of the disciples of Jesus discouraged and frustrated begin to travel to Emmaus their home. As they walked, they talked of the events of the week, and then Jesus came along side of them.

For whatever reason, their eyes were kept from recognizing this third person as Jesus, the Risen Lord.

Perhaps they were so preoccupied with their own disappointments and problems.

This wonderful interaction emphasizes that Jesus want to give us companionship, conversation, and challenge!

Opening drama audio was produced by Destiny Church Quebec Specials, and is used with thanksgiving.

7 Attributes of a Soul That Is “Passionate” About God.

Psalm 63 reminds us that nothing should hinder our passion for God. King David found himself in a wilderness fleeing from his own son Absalom, but he remained passionate about God.

The word “passion” means to be animated, vivacious or enthusiastic. “Enthusiasm” comes from the word; en theos...which means; in God or possessed by God. All other enthusiasm follows our enthusiasm for God. Who or what are you passionate about?

7 marks of a soul passionate towards God:

I. Makes God a priority (vs 1-2)

II. Gives praise to God! (vs 3-4)

III. Finds pleasure in God (vs 5)

IV. Is preoccupied with God! (vs 6-7)

V. It pursues after God (vs 8)

VI. perseveres with God (vs 8) (Thy right hand upholds me)

VII. positioned under God (vs 9-11)

The Wise men from the east arrive on the scene in Jerusalem some time after Jesus Christ is born. Their story is one of waking up, looking up, rising up, and showing up! They then bow down in humble worship. We can learn to practice the presence of God in our lives and experience the great joy moment that these travelers had.

This is a rebroadcast of the 2020 Christmas Eve service message by Charlie Grimes.

Episode #35#35

Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. Stress is your body's reaction to a challenge or demand. In short bursts, stress can be positive, such as when it helps you avoid danger or meet a deadline.

Dr. Jared Detter and I explore many topics here, including stress responses, emotional intelligence, why we think and do what we do when we are facing anxiety, anger, or any host of other emotions. Listen in for education and advice to help yourself and others manage these stressful days.

I really appreciate Jared's teaching ability-- he's a calm, collected, and master communicator. I hope you gain from his insight and our conversation here on the Encouragers United Podcast.

He is available for individual counseling, and organizational consulting, please contact him if you are interested in more.

Recently, my wife Wendy and I watched a Netflix documentary called the Minimalists. It’s the story of American authors, podcasters, filmmakers, and public speakers Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, who promote a minimalist lifestyle. It’s an intriguing story of realizing that “stuff” really had dominated our society and our lives. For those of you that know me personally, I would actually consider myself to be pretty simple and minimalist-- we live in a modest house here in the city of Canton, OH, I haven’t really ever earned a ton of money in my life, but Wendy and I have saved and had a budget plan which she executes so well for us--I guess I have however, have quite a few hobbies in my life also-- activities and things that I’ve wanted to learn and this has actually caused some “accumulation”. I’m pretty sentimental also-- so I tend to save things. Wendy will tell you I save weird things, like plastic containers, or bicycle parts-- or pieces of wood to possibly use on another home improvement project. Without getting too much into the storyline, I want you to know that the take-a-way we had from the show was a 30-day challenge to reduce the number of “things” we possess. Each day in the month of January, we donated or threw away the number of things that corresponded with the day of the month. (I actually was able to do more than that some days!) The total at the end of the month was to be 500 things! Wow, although it seems like a lot-- we still have quite of bit to go-- so we’ll probably be clearing out more things. But here are some of my personal reflections on this recent experience, because I believe it is indeed a very good practice-- and I would highly recommend that you consider it as well.

https://www.theminimalists.com/

MINIMALISM IS Simply OWNING FEWER POSSESSIONS.

Minimalism has given me FREEDOM FROM THE PASSION TO POSSESS.

IT IS FREEDOM FROM MODERN “Rat-race”.

IT helps me to live “congruently”-- in line with my beliefs and values.

IT IS COUNTER-CULTURAL.

IT Starts EXTERNAL, BUT moves to the INTERNAL.

IT IS COMPLETELY ACHIEVABLE.

Are you a spectator in life-- or are you a participant? In this episode, I want to make a distinction between those who stand back and watch the game-- and those who are in the trench, playing the game. It’s not good enough to skirt all responsibility for a situation, and simply give our critique or lame excuse-- real power in this life comes from stepping up to the plate, taking responsibility, and making something happen.

Opening quote is an excerpt from Theodore Roosevelt's "Man in the Arena".

A “spectator” perspective often processes life as a critique. These individuals are living a life of reflection and often criticism, mostly in hind sight--where they really have no responsibility at all for the circumstances. While “participants” realize that this is a one-shot deal and live life and take the initiative and the responsibility to positively make a difference right where they are right now.

So, which are you?Would you prefer to analyze and observe the game-critiqing it?- or are you willing to get in the game and participate? Listen to the powerful words from the bible-- James 1:22 "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves." I take this to be encouragement that we can’t just sit back and hear what God wants us to do-- we need to do it.

You see, it’s been said in life that you are either a part of the problem, or you are part of the solution. My experience tells me that if you’re “playing the game” trying to take responsibility and participate in life-- you’re going to be a part of the solution-- no matter where you are, or what you are up against...

But if you would resign yourself to simply standing back and watching-- being a spectator-- anything you may want to contribute later--- is probably part of the problem.

Don’t just be a hearer of the word--- be a doer!

Podcast Q&A

Why did you start this show?

The show started in 2018 as the "Christ-centered Athlete Podcast". I was currently coaching and administrating a small college athletic program. Slowly the audience shifted and I broadened by focus to include teachers, mentors and pastors. Encouragers United is a play on the "soccer" culture.

What do you hope listeners gain from listening to your show?

Inspiration and encouragement for sure! I want people to know that there is hope and purpose in life. As long as we have breath in our lungs, there is a future we can make!

Which episode should someone start with?

I would suggest Faith to Act, Faith to Wait. This was a sermon on Matthew 8 that explains the scene where Jesus calms the storm!

Which have been your favourite episodes so far?

Some of the interviews have been really good. My sister Heather Erbe is a radio personality, and our episode was really fun.

Which episode are you most proud of?

The interview with Jim Roddy, author of "The Walk-On Method" was really a great show.

What is your vision for your show?

Continue to produce content that inspires and engages with people in a positive way. I want to be known as a person who took what I have, and did what I could to help people.

What is your favourite other podcast that isn't yours?

Seth Godin's "Akimbo" is very good.

How did you come up with the name for your podcast?

It's a play on the "soccer" culture. Manchester United is a famous team-- soccer teams often consider themselves a "united" team. This podcast brings coaches, mentors, teachers and pastors together into one "united" team to encourage and build up the next generation of leaders.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I serve a congregation in Holmes County, OH. It's a blessing to be a pastor in a community with such a deep history and strong family values. I'm a husband to Wendy, proud father to three amazing daughters, and a over-the-top "Papa" to my grandchildren!
