Our Response to Christmas

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...

The Gift of Redemption

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...

He Came To Redeem The Lost

HE CAME TO REDEEM THE LOST... Good morning and welcome to Week 3 of our Advent study! I pray that this study is helping you dig a little deeper into the Christmas story. This week we are going to be looking at why Jesus was born. So... for most of my life I have felt...

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...

Week 1: The Promise of a Savior

THE PROMISE OF A SAVIOR... The Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock     and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go,     and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity...

God With Us: Introduction

Come, thou long expected Jesus... Have you ever wondered what God was doing all those years before the incarnation? Or why he chose to wait as long as he did before the incarnation became a reality? I have. But God's plan of salvation through the birth and death of...

Be Thankful In All Things

Don’t you think some of the hardest commands seem to be the ones that are the most clear and straightforward, like “be joyful always,” “pray without ceasing,” and our verse for today, “give thanks in all circumstances?" I find it hard because there are no loopholes;...

Grace, Gratitude & Glory

“For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people, it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:15-16 The other day as I was preparing for today’s post, I noticed that Paul repeats the phrase “we do not lose heart…”...

Gratitude that’s not of this world…

"We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which...

Thanksgiving With Passion

Ten men who are shunned for their leprosy, who are outcasts in their town, cry out to Jesus for healing. This is how our story begins, and all that Jesus says to them is “go and show yourselves to the Priests.” The lepers knew exactly what He meant and they must have...

What words will you say today?

In that day you will say: “Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;     make known among the nations what he has done,     and proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things;     let this be known to all the world. Shout aloud...
