Little Boy Jesus

During the incarnation, the Son of God gave up some characteristics of divinity. God’s Spirit was on him but he was born and grew up in the manner that all children do. He was acquainted with grief and sorrow, subject to temptation as we are. All so that he could sympathize with our weakness. He became one of us to save us.

Epiphany

We celebrate Epiphany in January to mark the fact that it took the wise men some time – a considerable amount of time – to reach Jesus and finally worship him. The shepherds looked for Jesus, found him, and immediately went out and told others. The wise men traveled a great distance and ran into some obstacles along the way but their persistence paid off.

Simeon and Anna

A week after Jesus was born, Joseph and Mary brought him to the temple as prescribed by the Law. Simeon was directed to the temple that day by the Holy Spirit, Anna was a prophetess who was always at the temple worshiping God with prayer and fasting day and night.

Christmas Card Theology

The images on our cards and our Christmas displays/decorations are useful but they do not tell the whole story.

Peace on Earth

You can have peace in a world that does not know peace. We can live in God’s peace on the earth now and in the coming Kingdom. The shepherds in Luke 2 exemplify hearing and responding to the Gospel.

Good Tidings of Great Joy

Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.” Luke 2:10 NKJV

More Than Belief

On the Second Sunday of Advent we light the Bethlehem Candle and think about the kind of faith Mary and Joseph had to follow God despite their circumstances.

A New Hope

I don’t know what happened last year but looking back at the website archives reminded me that I did not get to preach on the first Sunday of Advent back in 2019. I had a sermon prepared and wrote up a blog post but there must have been severe weather or a lot of sickness or something that caused us to call off church service. So here we go, “A New Hope” the first of four Advent sermons that’s been one year in the making.

Keeping the Weeks of Advent

The Advent season has been a regular part of our worship service for a few years. It is a season of preparation that help us focus on the tings that are most important. If you are unfamiliar with Advent this post should be helpful. The dates for the Advent Sundays this year, 2020, are as follows:

November 29 – Hope

December 6 – Faith

December 13 – Joy

December 20 – Peace

We will read passages of scripture, sing hymns and hear sermons based on these themes each week as well as light the corresponding candles of the Advent wreath. Jesus is the light of the world and we looking forward to celebrating that together in worship. We will also take communion on November 29th so a little something extra that will go along nicely with our focus on hope and prophecy.

The Day of the Lord

Remember the words of the prophets and the teachings of the Apostles when scoffers ask “when is the Lord returning? Things continue as they always have.” A thousands years is like a day to the Lord. He is not slack concerning his promises and the Day of the Lord will come.
