Mark D. Roberts Devotional Preview (More Coming to WTTU!)

Avoid Empty Words (Mark D. Roberts)

Empty words. Empty words. As I reflected on Ephesians 5:6, I was struck by the phrase “empty words.” This seems like the perfect phrase for so many of the words filling our lives today. Yet obviously empty words were a matter of concern to the Apostle Paul as he wrote two millennia ago.

We don’t know exactly whom Paul had in mind when he wrote “Let no one deceive you with empty words.” The context suggests that these deceivers might have claimed that immorality, impurity, and greed were really not such a big deal. Perhaps they were Christians who misconstrued God’s grace as an opportunity for ample sinning without consequences. Perhaps they were pagans who objected to the “narrow-mindedness” and “over-reactions” of Christians who rejected activities that were common in the Greco-Roman world but inconsistent with Christian discipleship.

No matter whom Paul was thinking of when he wrote, he characterized their claims as “empty words.” Why?

The Greek word translated here as “empty” (kenos) could mean “empty” in a literal sense (see Mark 12:3, for example). In Ephesians 5:6, kenos is used metaphorically. Empty words are those that lack substance, wisdom, or truth. They are words not filled with reality or matched with action. The famed fourth-century preacher, John Chrysostom, said when preaching on this verse from Ephesians, “There are always people among us who want to diminish the force of words. . . . Empty words are words that are for a moment attractive but in no way are proved by deeds” (Homily on Ephesians 18.5.5-6.1).

Paul was concerned that the recipients of his letter might be enticed by purveyors of empty words to reject a Christ-shaped perspective on life, especially when it comes to sexuality and greed. We have no shortage of such empty words today. In multiple ways, the empty wordsmiths of our world convince us that life is best when filled with sexual exploits and lots of possessions. We can begin to be persuaded that Christian morality is outdated, irrelevant, and oppressive. Thus, Paul’s injunction to the Ephesians deserves a new hearing today: Let no one deceive you with empty words. Listen for the truth of words. Seek their substance. Pay attention to those who lives reflect the solidness of their words. Let the words you speak be full of meaning and love.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:
When you think of “empty words,” what comes to mind?

Do you find yourself tempted to accept the counsel of those who use “empty words”? When? Why?

How substantial are your words? Are they full of truth and love?

SOMETHING TO DO:
As you go about your day, pay attention to your words. Are they substantial? Are they truthful? Are they loving? Are they really worth saying . . . and hearing? Choose today to use words that are full of truth and love.

PRAYER:
Gracious God, we have no shortage of “empty words” today. We can easily get caught up in the emptiness, filling our minds and our lips with words that are insubstantial, with words that are only spoken but not lived. Help us, Lord, to reject the empty words in favor of full words, words of life that come from you. May we be people who whose words are full of truth and love. Amen

The Presence of God

Can the presence of God in a worship be confined to a synth-droning sound? Do we have to have certain technologies to have God show up in a worship service?

If God is already present, omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent, then we do not need anything other than His Holy Spirit. @BranonDempsey @WorshipTT

GUEST BIO:

Pastor Holland Davis (P.HD) is the founder and senior pastor of Calvary Chapel San Clemente in San Clemente, California. He and his wife, Roxie, have two sons Austin, Chase and a daughter Madison. They live in San Juan Capistrano, California.

Holland spent his life growing up in different parts of the world because his dad was enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He’s lived on both coasts, grew up in a trailer in Beaufort, South Carolina, lived in Elk City, Oklahoma, Salt Lake City, Utah, Quantico, Virgina and Vista, California. Jesus made Himself known to Holland at a Young Life meeting in Iwakuni, Japan. He heard the audible voice of Jesus say “Holland I love you” and that changed his life forever. He was told by the Young Life leadership that he had become born again and was instructed to read the Bible and pray and God would teach him. So, Holland began reading the Bible and praying. However, no one told him that he needed to go to church. It wasn’t until his family moved back to the United States that he heard from a friend that you’re supposed to go to church and when he did, he was told that the things he read in the Bible weren’t true for today. This left him confused. Why would the church tell everyone they needed to read the Bible if it wasn’t 100% true for today?

At the age of 16, Holland heard a Pastor on the radio say that the Bible was 100% God’s Word and that it was 100% true for today. That Pastor was Chuck Smith. Shortly after, Holland began to pursue ministry as his passion and became the first worship leader at Calvary Chapel Vista at the age of 16. This passion for ministry was heightened after Lonnie Frisbee prayed for Holland at the age of 17.

As a young man, Holland and his wife Roxie helped plant several churches in the Southern California and Riverside area. During this time, Holland began writing worship songs for the local churches he was involved with. He also started teaching and leading worship at conferences around the nation as a recording artist for Rolltop Music. At a Night of Worship at a local church in Santee, Andrea Tucker from Maranatha! Music discovered Holland. This led to the fulfillment of a personal dream to work for Maranatha! Music where his multi-platinum selling song “Let It Rise” was recorded by Paul Baloche. Holland’s songs have been published by Vineyard Music, Calvary Chapel Music, Maranatha! Music, Capitol Music Group, Rolltop Records and Word Music and continue to be in the top 500 songs sung by church in the United States as reported by CCLI.

However, during a trip to Israel, Pastor Holland once again began to sense God’s leading to return to ministry. This eventually led him to Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa where he led worship for Pastor Chuck Smith, founded the School of Worship, founded Worship Life Conferences and relaunched Calvary Chapel Music. It was at this time that Worshipsong.com, an alternative distribution system for independent worship artists, was formed. Worshipsong.com and it’s award winning multi-track band app continue to pioneer ways for independent worship artists to distribute their songs to the church. Following his success at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, Holland joined Pastor Skip Heitzig at Ocean Hills Church in San Juan Capistrano. After two years, Pastor Skip returned to the church he founded in Albuquerque and left Pastor Holland with the charge to be a stabilizing factor during a long and difficult transition.

In 2009, God began to reveal that He had other plans for Holland and Roxie. Through several prophetic words and the agreement of his wife, God made it clear that it was time for Pastor Holland to plant a new Calvary Chapel work in San Clemente. With Pastor Chuck Smith’s blessing, Pastor Holland launched Calvary Chapel San Clemente with a small but dedicated team of church planters on February 14, 2010. The church is now established and growing. You can join Calvary Chapel San Clemente LIVE online, via their RADIO program Worship Life Radio or their newly launched TELEVISION program Worship Life TV.

The heart of Pastor Holland’s message is the radical grace of God and how to approach living from God’s “life giving” perspective as presented in God’s Word. Pastor Holland and his wife Roxie also understand the pain that families experience who have loved ones that struggle with mental illness and homelessness. As a teaching pastor and worship leader, his passion is to help people experience the real Presence of Jesus through the grace filled preaching of God’s Word. The mission of Calvary Chapel San Clemente is to know God through His Word, love God through our Worship and reveal God through our Witness.

Pastor Holland graduated from the Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa School of Ministry and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Behavioral Science from National University. Pastor Holland has had the privilege of serving on the platforms of nationally recognized ministries such as Exodus International, Billy Graham Rapid Response Training, Family Life, Christian Musician Summits and the National Worship Leader Conference . He continues to guest lecture and lead worship at conferences and universities such as Gateway Seminary, Life Pacific Bible College, Calvary Chapel Association Worship Conferences and Asuza Pacific University. He is a published author with Bridge Logos. His column, “In The Muse” can be seen monthly in Technologies For Worship Magazine.

#LifeSong

Time: 30m video

The Power of Story

Have you ever had a song in your heart that was tied to a memory? How about the time when Jesus first came into your life. What was the melody, what were the words?

More than what we realize, songs have a powerful message. When God works the melody in our hearts, He is also communicating His story, which becomes the message he wants us to sing.

Tommy came to Christ amidst a worship song when he was 11 years old. This is also a theme for what he’s doing in my ministry right now. Tommy Walker joins us today to talk about his story and new song of how: “A Song Can Change a Life”

Tommy Walker has served on staff as the worship leader at Christian Assembly in Los Angeles for 27 years, published over 300 worship songs, including “He Knows My Name” with Maranatha Music, Integrity, Lifeway and others and is currently posting a new song every week on his Facebook and Youtube page.

#JoyfullySing

Time: 30m video

Love One Another

As #WorshipLeaders and #WorshipTeams, we sing quite a bit about love. Jesus said that the way to show people that we love God is by loving each other (John 13:35). How is this love reflected in how we love each other on the team?Remember, Jesus did NOT say, “people will know that you are mine by the way you love ME …” rather He said, “they’ll know you love ME by the way you love THEM.”
 
That seems a little more difficult! God is easy to love—but our family? The Worship Leader? The drummer? How about that Soprano? They aren’t always so easy to love!
