Giving From Nothing

Viktor Frankl describes the experience of nakedness in Auschwitz, a World War II Nazi concentration camp. When he had nothing – truly nothing – death no longer held fear over him.

By this time, he had lost his family, his career, his strength, his money, his possessions, his house, his clothing and his identity. The Nazis reduced him to an anonymous walking skeleton. Only the , in possession of nothing, could he fearlessly face death.

What does it mean to be intentional about making disciples? And why is this so important?

Jesus decided to interject himself into human history at a certain time and into a certain tradition: Israel’s rabbi culture at the turn of the millennium. He could have chosen any time frame, any civilization, with any tool necessary. Why not 21st century America? After all, the United States spreads its long shadow around the world.

That he died and rose again? That we will be with him forever if we repent and are baptized?" I forgot a few in the litany because his machine-gun delivery leveled me.

Revolworks

The wife of a rural pastor would seem to have little reason for smiling. She and her husband lost their oldest son when he was nine. They are poor and have no visible hope of ever moving out of poverty. The needs of their church and community demand their time, their energy, their resources.

Yet when she opened the door to her home, ushering in visitors, she laughed warmly, smiled authentically. She felt glad to receive guests.
