  26. 26. “Theology & Disciplines in the Workplace” by Dallas Willard ~ The Kingdom of God at Work @ Work ~ When you’re thinking about whole life discipleship, the problem is going to be what you take discipleship to be. The greatest barrier to whole life discipleship is the theory of salvation that does not include it. You may just decide to enjoy the ride to Heaven and not worry about anything else. “Thank you Jesus. I’ll see you in Heaven later. I’ll get on with my life.” Take Jesus’ presence as an apprentice to live in the Kingdom of God like He does. All of the tasks I undertake at WORK, I undertake with Jesus at my elbow. God is present in my life through Jesus the Son. He is my teacher. He is the one I am learning from constantly as I go through life. This infinitely powerful love is present wherever we are. God at WORK where we are in nature, history, social processes, economy, WORK. God is always at WORK. Important to think this if we are going to take Him to WORK. Recognize He is already there.

  27. 27. Obedience is Love !“In the last judgment we shall not be asked how learned we were or whether we displayed our learning before the world; to what extent we enjoyed the favor of men and knew how to keep it; with what honor we were exalted and how great a reputation in the world we left behind us; or how many treasures of earthly goods we amassed for our children and thereby drew a curse upon ourselves. Instead we shall be asked how faithfully and with how childlike a heart we sought to further the Kingdom of God; with how pure and godly a teaching and how worthy an example we tried to edify our hearers amid the scorn of the world, denial of self, take up the the cross, and imitation of our Savior.” Phillipp Jakob Spener, 1675, Pia Desideria, p. 36 (trans. Tapper, 1964) Friday, September 26, 14

  30. 30. Aslan turned to them and said: “You do not yet look so happy as I mean you to be.” Lucy said, “We’re so afraid of being sent away, Aslan. And you have sent us back into our own world so often.” “No fear of that,” said Aslan. “Have you not guessed?” Their hearts leaped, and a wild hope rose within them. “There was a real railway accident,” said Aslan softly. “Your father and mother and all of you are—as you used to call it in the Shadowlands— dead. The term is over: the holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the morning.” And as He spoke He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on Earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.
