The Trust Fall

We called it the Faith Course.  Every summer, I’d hop on a bus to chaperone another group of girls from our youth group at summer camp. They played big ball volleyball on the sand court and wrestled over a greased watermelon in the lake. Those adventurous girls got...

Introduction To Our Walking In Wisdom Study

Tomorrow night is Christmas Eve and I am so excited! All around the world people will be gathering together with family or friends. There will be good food, maybe some songs, family traditions of various kinds and hopefully lots of laughter and joy. It is, after all,...

From the View of Angels…

We see angels ever present during Jesus’ Advent. These creations of God have the privilege of seeing God face to face in Heaven. Angels are seen throughout the Bible rebuking, informing, encouraging, guiding, protecting, advising, but primarily we read of them...

Week 4: How you can help the world see Jesus this Christmas…

And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.     For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed; for he who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is...

Gloria in Excelsis Deo

Come to Bethlehem and see Him whose birth the angels sing; Come, adore on bended knee Christ, the Lord, the new-born King. Gloria in excelsis Deo. This morning, I got a text message from a friend announcing the birth of her son, Milo.  He arrived unexpectedly early...

One of Jesus’ purposes in descending to earth was to redeem His people. In Heaven, a new song of worship will be sung praising the Son of God’s sacrificial actions for His people. Redemption is the act of gaining possession of something in exchange for payment of a...

When You’re Feeling Forsaken…

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” - Matthew 27:46 He lay on the table in anguish, strapped down like some criminal. Enduring an hour-long scan and all...

No Crib for His Bed

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head, The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay, The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. The circumstances of Jesus’ birth were less than ideal. He took his first breath in a...

Week 2: It Meant Leaving Heaven

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.”- 2 Corinthians 8:9 When Christ came as a child it meant leaving all the comforts of heaven behind. This...

The Promise Of A Kingdom

When I think of that first Christmas night, it is hard to imagine that while Bethlehem was bursting with people, not one of them knew that in their midst, the Son of God was being born. The Word had become flesh, the Redeemer of the world had entered time. The only...

His Name Is…

After waiting hundreds of years, the promised Messiah finally arrived in the darkest of times. Unrest, fear, and death would adequately describe the time in history God chose to fulfill His 700-year-old promise to the Jews and give them their much-awaited Savior. I’m...

God With Us: Introduction
