messageRegarding Grammar:

This is a transcription of the sermon. People speak differently than they write, and there are common colloquialisms in this transcript that sound good when spoken, and look like bad grammar when written.

Douglas Poole: 00:01 Good morning and welcome on this rainy day. We have a little rule around here about weather, and about church, and we've been trying to emphasize it every week. We call it the ten ten rule, you're in church every weekend unless it rains 10 inches that day, or it's or it's 10 degrees above zero. So this morning I'm at home, and I'm getting ready for the service. And I get a text from one of our leaders saying, yeah, one of our leaders, saying it rained 10 inches. You loser, they're getting charged. So I'm glad you're braving the weather, and I'm glad that you're here. I want to, I guess, apologize. You came in, and we got curtains up behind you, and it's kind of tight in here. And we usually have these curtains up in our 9:15 service, a smaller service, and then take them out so there's space. And so it's a little bit tighter in here, and you're probably sitting closer to some people than you really want to be right now. But let that be a lesson to you, because I know I saw how it filled up, back rows forward. And I saw people coming in late and like, oh no, only seats up front. And I saw one guy coming in, and I know he's a big Pats fan. I thought, you got to be on your knees up here man, putting a lot in the offering plate for next weekend.

Douglas Poole: 01:29 But anyway, so I apologize for that. We had, between the 9:15 and the 11:00 service, we had a funeral in here, and so second in about a week's time here. And so, we didn't have time to make adjustments. It's like 9:15 started out, and then some of you got held up from coming in, and so the only time it can be arranged was this. And so, we had the service. So, this was one of those days where I'm shifting gears without an emotional clutch. And so, all that said, it's raining and it's cold for us in Florida. And maybe you've got some challenges you're facing in your life right now. Can I just tell you one thing? You're alive, you are alive. And as they used to tell me when I was in divinity school, as long as there's life and there's breath and there's God, you've got everything you need. And so we believe we've got everything we need in this space. And so it really is, it's a great, great day to be alive, great day to be in this space, and we've got a great topic that we're covering right now.

Douglas Poole: 02:39 We're talking about this thing called Wide Awake, is the theme of our series. And in this series we're saying, what would it look like to do more than just dream about a life? What would it be like to live a life of your dreams? And we have been looking at a warrior prince, his story in scripture, his name is Jonathan. And his story is told by the Prophet Samuel, and it's contained in the pages of scripture. And I just want us to know, as we look at scripture every week, this scripture is something much more than than a record of history. It is a record of history, but it's something much more than a record of history, it is a template for building a future. And so if you have hopes and dreams and aspirations for your life, this is something much more than telling you, you know how God worked in the past. This is a template to build your future, to build your life, to build your hopes and your dreams together with that.

Douglas Poole: 03:34 And the story of the warrior prince Jonathan, is found in First Samuel chapter 13, and you can turn there if you like Today, we're going to talk about the middle of the story, the middle. And the middle of the story otherwise is known as the battle, the battle. And so every great story always begins with once upon a time, and every great story therefore ends how? And they lived happily ever after, isn't that great? So, we just love stories with happy endings. And I'm going to tell you four quick modern stories, that are going to set up the story about the warrior prince Jonathan from scripture. Four stories you probably are familiar with, and if you are, you know, I hope you learn a little new insight in this.
Douglas Poole: 04:23 First story is this, once upon a time there was a single mom, there she is. A single mom named J.K. Rowling, living on welfare, who dreamed of becoming a published author. So she wrote some stories of a boy wizard named Harry Potter. Yep. Didn't think you'd get to say that in church, did ya? Harry Potter. And she became one of the most widely read authors in all of human history, and she got quite wealthy in the process. Next, once upon a time, there were four British lads, recognize them? By names, John, Paul, George, and Ringo. They started a little band called The Quarrymen, that name didn't work too well, so they changed it to The Beatles. And these four lads went on to sell one 1.6 billion songs. Can you imagine that? Yeah. And then $177 million albums to become one of the most, or if not, the most popular band in the history. Next, once upon a time there was an inventor named Thomas Edison who wanted to light the darkness of the night, he created the incandescent light bulb, and now if you see our planet at night, it just glows from space. One more, once upon a time there was a 20 year old guy by the name of Steve Jobs, he had a buddy, Steve Wozniak. And so they set up shop in Job's parents garage, they set out to create a new kind of a computer would call Apple. Last year in 2018, as a company, Apple's value was 1 trillion US dollars. Oh, I can't even wrap my mind around $1,000,000,000,000, I'd love to wrap my hands around it, but I can't wrap my mind around it. And then Apple, they have computers and watches and phones and ipads and all the rest of it. Like, what cool stories, right? You know, I'd like a story like that. But every single one of these stories that we just told you, every single one has a middle, they had battles that had to be fought. And if J. K. Rowling, and the Beatles, and Edison, and Jobs didn't fight their battles, they never would have the ending that you heard.

Douglas Poole: 06:44 So let me go back, and tell you the middle quickly on each of these stories. Let's go back to J. K. Rowling, before she became one of the most read authors in history, before she had movies after her books, and now there's a theme park, yeah, a theme park. Before all that happened, she was supporting herself as an English teacher, as a secretary, and as a researcher, she was writing on the side. As she was writing on the side, she was battling with depression so severe, she was contemplating suicide. Then when she finished her manuscript, twelve different publishers turned her down. Bet they wish they could do that one over, right? But she had a battle to fight.

Douglas Poole: 07:31 Let's go onto the British lads. The Beatles spent years and years and years, nobody knowing who they were, playing in bars and clubs all over England and all over Europe. And when they tried to get a record label, they were turned down because quote, they just weren't that good. And I'll bet those record companies wish they had a do over, a mulligan, on that one, right, to gain them.

Douglas Poole: 07:58 Thomas Edison, he was actually fired from his first two jobs for being quote, nonproductive, end quote. This little light bulb he wanted to invent, he had 1000 failed attempts. So, before he got that light bulb, a thousand times he failed.

Douglas Poole: 08:19 And then Steve Jobs, he had some epic fails along the way. He had this little thing called Apple Lisa, and he had this thing called the Power Mac G Four Cube, and he had a string of epic failures. And so the board of the company he founded fired him, his own company, and sent him packing out the door. And eventually, many of you know the story, they rehired him and brought him back. And when they brought him back, he turned that company around.

Douglas Poole: 08:49 So in each of these stories, between once upon a time and happily ever after, there's a middle. And in the middle for these dreams to become reality there's this battle, or oftentimes battles, that have to be fought.
Douglas Poole: 09:06 And so today we're going to look at the life of the warrior prince Jonathan, who has this dream that he's going to set his people free from the oppression of the Philistines. And between that dream, and their actual freedom coming, there is this middle place. This middle place where there is real life battles that have to be engaged in. And friends, I just want us to wrap our minds around this, because many of us believe that God has put desires in our hearts and our heads, of this person we're going to become, of this beauty we're going to create, these good things we're going to do in the world. And so we think, you know, once upon a time, and then we think we're going to live happily ever after. We just have to wrap our minds around understanding there's going to be a middle for every single one of us in these endeavors. And it's going to get remarkably hard, and there are going to be battles you're going to have to face, and there's going to be pushback. There's going to be setbacks, and when that happens, you may wonder, where's God in this dream? Because if God's in it, shouldn't it be easier than this? You will find yourself wondering why are there so many obstacles, so many challenges, why is it from challenge to challenge to challenge? And then you may start to feel a little abandoned, or deserted, or alone, you know, that God has forgotten about you. And then your confidence begins to wane. And when your confidence begins to wane it is so easy to just walk away from it, and just say, forget about it, it's never going to happen, it was never meant to be. And then we never realize the person that God has called us to be, we never see the realization of whatever it is God has called us to do.

Douglas Poole: 10:49 So let me reread here, what has become a familiar story to those of you who've been here week after week, the story of a warrior prince Jonathan. We're going to wrap this up next week, and we'll go to a different passage of scripture. But like every weekend we've been reading the same passage of scripture, and every weekend you giggle as I try to read the names of these people and these places, so behave yourselves. Alright, the story, First Samuel, beginning of chapter 13, beginning of verse 22, "So on the day of the battle not a soldier with Saul and Jonathan had a sword or spear in his hand; only Saul and his son Jonathan had them. Now a detachment of Philistines had gone out to the pass at Mikmash. One day Jonathan son of Saul said to his young armor-bearer, “Come, let’s go over to the Philistine outpost on the other side.” But he did not tell his father. Saul was staying on the outskirts of Gibeah under a pomegranate tree in Migron. With him were about six hundred men, among whom was Ahijah, who was wearing an ephod. He was a son of Ichabod’s brother Ahitub son of Phinehas, the son of Eli, the Lord’s priest in Shiloh. No one was aware that Jonathan had left. On each side of the pass that Jonathan intended to cross to reach the Philistine outpost was a cliff; one was called Bozez and the other Seneh. One cliff stood to the north toward Mikmash, the other to the south toward Geba. Jonathan said to his young armor-bearer, “Come, let’s go over to the outpost of those uncircumcised men. Perhaps the Lord will act in our behalf. Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few.” “Do all that you have in mind,” his armor-bearer said. “Go ahead; I am with you heart and soul.” Jonathan said, “Come on, then; we will cross over toward them and let them see us. If they say to us, ‘Wait there until we come to you,’ we will stay where we are and not go up to them. But if they say, ‘Come up to us,’ we will climb up, because that will be our sign that the Lord has given them into our hands.” So both of them showed themselves to the Philistine outpost. “Look!” said the Philistines. “The Hebrews are crawling out of the holes they were hiding in.” The men of the outpost shouted to Jonathan and his armor-bearer, “Come up to us and we’ll teach you a lesson.” So Jonathan said to his armor-bearer, “Climb up after me; the Lord has given them into the hand of Israel.” Jonathan climbed up, using his hands and feet, with his armor-bearer right behind him. The Philistines fell before Jonathan, and his armor-bearer followed and killed behind him. In that first attack Jonathan and his armor-bearer killed some twenty men in an area of about half an acre. Then panic struck the whole army—those in the camp and field, and those in the outposts and raiding parties—and the ground shook. It was a panic sent by God. Saul’s lookouts at Gibeah in Benjamin saw the army melting away in all directions. Then Saul said to the men who were with him, “Muster the forces and see who has left us.” When they did, it was Jonathan and his armor-bearer who were not there. Saul said to Ahijah, “Bring the ark of God.” (At that time it was with the Israelites.) While Saul was talking to the priest, the tumult in the Philistine camp increased more and more. So Saul said to the priest, “Withdraw your hand.” Then Saul and all his men assembled and went to the battle. They found the Philistines in total confusion, striking each other with their swords. Those Hebrews who had previously been with the Philistines and had gone up with them to their camp went over to the Israelites who were with Saul and Jonathan. When all the Israelites who had hidden in the hill country of Ephraim heard that the Philistines were on the run, they joined the battle in hot pursuit. So on that day the Lord saved Israel, and the battle moved on beyond Beth Aven."

Douglas Poole: 14:56 For instance, Jonathan, the warrior prince, he knew, he understood, he wrapped his mind and his heart around the fact that if we're going to be free from the Philistine oppression, there's going to have to be a battle. We're going to have to go to war. They're not just going to get tired of us, and pack up and go home, and say, have your land back again. And this was a time when battles were pretty much hand to hand conflict, swords, close proximity. People were injured, they were maimed for life, they were killed. There was a bloody, bloody mess, I think that is called risk. And I think that's why Saul and his men we're hiding away from the front line under a pomegranate tree. I think it's why so many folks had gone, become turncoats, in droves. I think that's why so many were hiding out in caves. Because there's a risk to go to battle against the Philistines, battles always involve risk. And Jonathan knew, if you're not willing to step into a battle, and you're not willing to take a risk, then our vision of freedom will never be experienced. It'll never become a reality for us.

Douglas Poole: 16:11 By the way, on the way to winning a war, you usually don't win every battle along the way. And so if you want to live a life that is wide awake, a life where you are becoming more and more the person God is calling you to be. If you're wanting to do something that God has inspired you to do, that is something that is beautiful, something that is good, and something that will make a difference in this world, something that will matter. You're going to have to risk, you're going to have to engage, and most likely you're going to experience some failure along the way. It could be that your first 1000 attempts at a light bulb are going to be failures, but you've got to get up and get going. It could be that the first twelve publishers are going to say, turn up their nose at your idea and your book. And maybe just maybe, you're going to manufacture a Power Mac G Four Cube, it's going to be an epic fail, but beauty is born out of struggle.

Douglas Poole: 17:13 So let's unpack this together, the strategy of the warrior prince. Verse number one says, One day Jonathan, son of Saul, said to the young man bearing his armor. Huh, let's go over to the Philistine outpost, on the other side, but did not telling his father. And I just love this thinking of Jonathan. If the Philistines are ever going to be repelled, it's going to mean a battle, there's no other way around it. So if there has to be a battle, why don't we fight it on our terms. I mean instead of waiting for them to come to us, let's take the battle to them. Let's take the initiative, let's move on things. There's going to be a battle, we know it, so let's do it on our terms. Friends, most of us do our absolute best to avoid battles, and challenges, and difficulties, and conflict, don't we? We don't like conflict, and battles, and difficulties, and challenges, but Jonathan just knew the reality that had to be faced.

Douglas Poole: 18:18 Now here's what's true been true of me in my life, and maybe it's true of you. Now you have this dream in your heart of who God is calling you to be, and what God is calling you to do, and you know it needs to be done. But you know it's not going to be easy, because there's some really hard conversations you're going to have to have, and who likes having hard conversations, right? There's some really difficult decisions you have to wrestle with. There are some battles that you're going to have to fight, because you know there's going to be shortages of resources, you know it from the get go. You know there's going to be naysayers, you know who are going to tell you, what are your thinking? Not you, you're an idiot, right? You've met those folks. You're not those folks, right? We've met those folks, you know it's not you, it's somebody more gifted, somebody smarter, somebody more talented. And so the naysayers come out, and we've got to battle those doubts, and those voices in our heads. There will be discouragement, there'll be setbacks, hunger pangs, and so we know what we're going to have to face. And so we keep putting it off, don't we? Give me a day. And then we just like to spiritualize it, and the fact that we are waiting, and not stepping into it. And we think if I do this, I mean things are going to get unsettled, we're going to rock the boat for a while, who likes to be on our boat that's rocking everywhere. The outcome is uncertain, because we don't have a guarantee of how this is going to turn out. And did you know what stands behind that voice in all of us? Fear, it's always fear that is speaking behind all of it. And so friends, we don't like to say we're afraid, so we give fear other names. We spiritualize our fear. And as I've been saying this series, we find ourselves saying, I'm waiting on the Lord, waiting on God's timing. Yes, I'm a holy person, and as soon as God says, now, boy, I'm the first one in line.

Douglas Poole: 20:34 Jonathan says this, he says today, today's the day. He gets out his day timer, and he writes, go pick a fight with the Philistines. That's all I got to do today, one thing, that's all I've got to do. He says, today is that day. Today is the day I overcome my fears. Today's the day I step in the battle. Today's when I display some courage and some hope. Let me tell you about a time my wife told me to go pick a fight. She did, a preacher's wife saying, go pick a fight. We are a church that believed, we had this novel idea, churches should be led by leaders. Novel, right? And we understand that God gives leadership abilities to both men and women, therefore, in our church both men and women lead at every level. Which if this is your home church, it's like, well, duh, yeah. I mean doesn't...But you don't understand how unusual it is, and what creates tension is the organization that holds my license, they don't believe that. They believe women are not qualified to lead. They believe the same thing every other church up and down church row believes, that women aren't qualified to lead. My wife informed me it was time to go pick a fight with those churches. Now I'm like, ooh, baby easy, easy on that one, okay? And so we've been operating, so for years my wife has been saying to me to go address it with them, go address it with the organization. And so I said, honey, they like hold all the cards, they giveth and they can taketh away my license. And they have made it really loud and clear that if you don't want to play by their rules, they can remove me from the church like that, and I'm no longer the pastor. And that could probably create some, I think it's called risk, isn't it? It's called risk, in those moments. And so anyway, January of 2017 I had a meeting coming up with the leader of the organization, and Jackie said, address it, address it with them, go pick a fight. And so I said to the elders, you know, I said, what do you think? They said, go pick a fight, we'll pray for you brother. Thanks, thanks, good. But I know that it can be an ecclesiastical fight, a theological fight, and potentially even a legal fight on this matter. And it may come up out of it, that I've packed my bags, and I'm no longer your pastor. And so Jackie writes in my day timer, go pick a fight on that day. The day comes and she said, graciously, but boldly pick a fight. So I very graciously, but very boldly picked a fight on this matter. Do you know what was keeping me from that moment, from doing it before then? It was good old fashioned fear. Fear.

Douglas Poole: 23:41 What if the next week you come to church, and it's like there's somebody you don't know, [inaudible] Douglas is no longer here, literally, he's no longer with us. What does that look like for a church? You know, fear, fear. So on the day I graciously, but boldly, I picked a fight. Long story short, it was a long, protracted negotiation, well over a year. Twelve, fifteen different meetings that I had to go to and rationale on and on and on. But at the end of the day, here's what happened. They held the title to our building and land, they sold it to us for $10., not bad. At the end of the day they changed our status with them, but we're in an outer orbit association. They gave up the right to remove me as your pastor, and on top of it, they still gave me a license. But friends, it was fear. fear that was keeping me from taking that step for far too long. But it happened because Jackie got my day timer, and wrote, today, go pick a fight.

Douglas Poole: 25:03 So you have a dream that God has put in your heart, who you're supposed to be, the beauty you're supposed to create, the good that you're going to do. And if you're waiting and you're waiting for the right circumstances, on the perfect day, under the perfect sun, and with all the perfect circumstances, you'll wait until you die. You'll wait until you die. Some of us, friends, need to get our calendars out and just write, go pick a fight. If you have a hard time doing that, take your day timer and your pen to my wife Jackie after the service, and she will gladly write it in for you.

Douglas Poole: 25:36 Alright, verse number eight, let's continue. So Jonathan said, come then we will cross over toward the men and let them see us. I'm not a military expert, I didn't go to West Point, I didn't serve in the military. But I did watch Saving Private Ryan a couple of times, and I watched, We Were Young once, and Soldiers, I've watched that a few times. So I'm not an expert, but from what I understand, I can't help but wonder about his strategy, right? Here they are there, they are outnumbered, you know, outmanned at least ten to one. They're outgunned at least 20 swords to one sword, and plus the Philistines have bows and arrows and spears, and they also hold the high ground on this. And so I think my plan would have been this, we'll wait until a moonless night, and when it's good and dark, we'll sneak in the shadows of the shadows, maintain radio silence. And we'll try and get the jump on them while they're sleeping, and they won't know what hit him. That would have been my beautiful plan, but not the warrior prince. He says, let's step up, and let's show ourselves. You want some of this, because here it is, I'm here. Now, you want to engage with me on this? And he did it because he believed God was in the deal. Verse six continues, he says, "Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few." I don't think Jonathan was being presumptuous, I don't think he's being foolish here. I think he knows if you want to make a difference, if you want to see a dream become a reality, you cannot do it while you were an anonymous face in the crowd. This is about stepping up and stepping into the life God has called you to, to make sure that your life counts. And oftentimes we don't want to step up, and we don't want to step in, because we don't want to be noticed, do we? Because when we step up we say, this is who God is calling me to be, this is my goal for my life, this is the beauty that I'm going to create. Then all of a sudden people notice us, don't they? Now all of a sudden the voices begin to come out. You don't have what it takes. You'll never be able to make it happen. That's a dumb plan, and a dumb idea, it's destined for failure. And we don't want to face those kind of words, do we? So we'd rather just kind of stay in the shadows. I'll kind of keep it to myself. And maybe when it's all said and done, I'll say one day, voila, look at, look at what happened. But we don't like to announce ourselves, like Jonathan announced himself.

Douglas Poole: 28:19 And then what's worse, what if it doesn't work out? Right? We had this dream, and then we get ridiculed. People say, we told you, you couldn't do it. Like what were you thinking anyway, and then we feel like even more of a failure, because people know about us. So it's just so much easier to be invisible, isn't it? Friends, do you know there are other words for invisible? They are words like average, mediocre, normal, predictable, and safe. You see, the most important decisions in our lives are going to require you forsaking invisibility, and you must risk becoming visible. Here I am, do you want some of this? You see, he burned his bridges didn't he? Now there's no going back, I've stepped out. And so oftentimes we don't want to announce ourselves, because we want an exit plan just in case things don't work out. But Jonathan stepped into the point of no return. Here I am, I'm burning my exit, there's no exit for me. I go forward, or I can go down, that's my only choices. And he stepped forward boldly for what God had for him.

Douglas Poole: 29:27 Verse 11 says, "And so both of them showed themselves to the Philistine outpost." This was the point of no return. When we become visible, the invisible presence of God becomes visible, our action makes the way for God's activity in our lives. Friends, God was wanting the Israelites to be freed from the oppression of the Philistines for decades, and the Israelis kept saying, well we are waiting on God. No, God was waiting on them. God was just waiting for one person who would trust him enough, who would step up, and step into the battle. It was the battle they were afraid of. They knew what God had called him to do and who God called them to be. There is so much good God is wanting in this world. Friends, this world needs people who are doing good in the name of God. So much good God is wanting to do in your life, that will only be seen when we are willing to be seen. And the good, by the way, the good that God is wanting to do in this world, it does not feel safe, nor is it risk free. You just got to wrap your minds around it. Whatever it is, there's going to be battles. Not a battle, battles, you're going to have to fight. And you're going to have to risk, and I know what it is like to risk, and then fail, then risk again, and fail. But then get up, and get back into the battle.

Douglas Poole: 30:56 And there are some things I can think of in our church history that only became a reality, because we refused to get out of the ring. You can keep throwing your punches, and you can keep opposing this to the bitter end, but I'm not getting out of the ring because this is something God has asked us to do. And so we're going to be in this thing, and we're going to keep fighting the fight, and we're not going to back off on this. But it happened, because we refused to step out of the battle. And friends, so often what we do when we experience the battle, we back off, we walk away, we step out of because it just gets too hard. You may fail along the way, but failure is often the context for miracles. You see, the Israeli army had failed in numerous battles before this. And let me just tell you straight up, if you have never failed, it might just be because you have never really risked. People who risk know failure, and failure can change us, and failure can shape us, and failure can teach us. And yes, failure is related to risk, but don't you understand that risk is related to success.

Douglas Poole: 32:03 So between once upon a time, and happily ever after, there is this time called today. And the scriptures say this in Hebrews chapter three. They say, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts." So today, what is the dream God has put in your heart about who you are to become, about what you are to do? What is that dream? And I just know this. If that dream of who you are to become, if that dream of what you are to do, if it is a worthwhile dream, you're going to have battles that you're going to face. They're going to be challenges, numerous challenges that have to be overcome, difficulties you're going to have to risk. And you may fail, you may fail again and again and again, and maybe you'll fail a thousand times like Einstein, but you're going to have to stay in the ring and fight the battle that is before you. But today, step up, step in, show yourself. It will not be risk free, but if God is in it, you are free to risk. And that's the beauty, and that's our hope. What is your battle? Step into it, prevail with God and His grace. Beauty, hope, good awaits on the other side, of those who are willing to step into the middle. Don't walk away, step in, step up, show yourself.

Douglas Poole: 33:39 Let's pray. Our Father in Heaven, would you please find a way in this moment, right now in this room, to speak into our souls? And father, I want to pray for those, I mean they know the dream you've put in their heart, they know who you're calling them to be, they know what you're calling him to do, and the voices of obstacles and challenges and difficulties are speaking so loud. I pray that somehow right now they could hear your still, small, voice, that they could just hear it today. In this moment, God, I pray that fear would be replaced by courage in hearts. I pray that doubts and uncertainties could be pushed away by faith. And father, I ask that you would forgive us right now for our lame excuses, forgive us for keeping you waiting, God. The things you're wanting to do in our world, our country, in our lives, in our families, forgive us for keeping you waiting. And Lord, today may we realize the ball's in our court. Today, Lord, may we step up, and step into, show ourselves, walk into the battles you've called us to walk into. Help us to understand, Lord, it's not risk free, but because you're in it, we're very free to risk. So Lord today, may today be the day, and everybody agreed and said, Amen. God bless you, Cypress. You have a great week, and we'll see you next weekend.
