Honour and glory – 19th October 2016

Lord, help me to live to your honour and glory. On my own I want honour and glory for myself. I like to be the centre of attention and to receive praise and recognition beyond what I deserve. Help me to make less of myself and more of you. Fill me with humility. Through Christ I ask. AMEN

Branching out

“Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre”.

Mk 7:24 NIV

To visit Israel is a fascinating experience for a Christian. At first it is strange to find that it is not a Christian country at all. But the sites associated with Jesus’ life and ministry are carefully preserved as Christian tourists are a source of income for the locals. Just where did Jesus go?

Up till this point in Mark’s story of Jesus, he has been in and around the area surrounding the Sea of Galilee. The city of Tyre was a fair distance away – but it was not part of Israel. It was a seaport on the Mediterranean coast, some forty miles north-west of Capernaum. It was in Phoenicia, a district of Syria. It survives today as a small town called Sur in Lebanon. Possibly in order to get some respite from the thronging crowds, Jesus made his way to this outpost on the coast. The significance is that it was Gentile, and not Jewish, territory. By the time Mark wrote his gospel, some three decades after Christ, the Christian church was already well spread in Asia Minor and Europe with a huge majority of Gentile members. But the process of admitting Gentiles into the church was dogged by controversy. Paul had spearheaded this rapid spread of Christ’s church. And Mark was one of Paul’s travelling companions! So in fact what Mark was saying was, “Don’t think that Paul is doing something that Jesus would not do by admitting Gentiles. Jesus himself went to Gentiles carrying the love, mercy and peace of God to them”.

Christianity can never be merely a little closed shop. The mind of Jesus Christ was, “Out to the Gentiles”. It still is – whoever the Gentiles might be.
