It's tough to be specific without being exclusive.
"God bless America" (specific) often implies "and no place else" (exclusive)
"God loves us" (specific) often implies "and not you" (exclusive)
"God is blessing my work" (specific) sometimes implies "and not yours" (exclusive)
In the story of Joshua, Joshua learns that God's specific blessing doesn't imply exclusivity. He's scouting out Jericho, trying to find a weak point, a way to make a successful offense.
Along the way, he encountered a man standing with a drawn sword. Joshua issued the challenge: are you with us or with our enemies? The man introduces himself as the Commander of the Army of the Lord and, in answer to Joshua's challenge, said "No."
That's quite a non-sequitor. Are you with us or with them? No.
No isn't an option. But that's the answer. God refuses that particular exclusivity. He isn't for us and no one else. God is for us because he is for everyone else. God was for the people of Israel because he was for the world. He was for Abraham because he was for the nations.
The Christian reaction to postmodern subjectivism often ignores the reality that God gets specific because he's not exclusive.
It's hard for us to imagine "specific but not exclusive." When Joel (a friend from Small Group in Lex) takes his vows this weekend, he'll be married exclusively to a specific woman (another friend from Small Group - Jenny). This is a zero-sum game, at least in our culture. Say "yes" to one in marriage, say "no" to everyone else, at least for a while.
We're used to zero-sum options, my gain is your loss. But so much of Christian theology vaults over this dilemma. One God and Three Persons. Fully God and Fully Human. Sinner and Saint. Local and Universal.
This way of thinking - specific but not exclusive - is a big jump. Let make it (and invite others to make it with us).
