CHRISTMAS MEMORY PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, December 10 2017 00:00

There’s much about this season that goes beyond the corporeal, the material, the tangible.  Different sights, sounds or even smells drag us into moments we thought were long-lost forever.  Some of these winks in time are precious and we don’t want to see them disappear.  Others are aberrations – an invasion of our peace – and it would be fine with us if we never, ever thought of them again.

Being human though, they come upon us at their own pace.  All of this led me once again to this particular thought . . . 

What of Mary?

Mary at the cross?

In that moment of excruciating pain – both physical and emotional – what memories must have come gushing forth!

All the encounters, all the divine signs, all that happened just as God said it would must have led her to believe that this day would never come.  Imagine the Christmas ghosts she encountered?

But!  God’s Word is sure, and will always be accomplished!

It’s not a ghost of the past that she encounters days later – but her son . . . God the Son.  Conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a woman to lead humanity to the Father!

Now that’s a Christmas memory!

“And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.  He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”  Luke 1:31–33  ESV

FOR TO THIS YOU HAVE BEEN CALLED PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor

“For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in His steps.  He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in His mouth.  When He was reviled, He did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but continued entrusting Himself to Him who judges justly.   He himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness.  By His wounds you have been healed.”  1 Peter 2:21-24 ESV

Before Peter brings his readers to the crescendo of his apologetics passage in what we call chapter three, he proceeds this teaching with a reminder that as we faithfully walk with Jesus we will also experience suffering in this temporary, present, existence.  He actually brackets this instruction with the idea of suffering – reminding us that this is not a sign of disobedience – but to the contrary, a sign of deep faithfulness.

“For to this you have been called . . .”  To what?  Suffering for His cause, His message.  Peters' world, and our own, resists "The Jesus Way" violently at the behest of their lord – the devil.  The apostles experienced this first hand, as have so many Christians that followed in their footsteps. 
The questions arises today, for us . . .

  • Are we following His (Jesus) example?
  • Are we walking in His steps?
  • Are we willing to surrender all?


“. . . but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.”  1 Peter 3:15 ESV

HOPE PDF Print E-mail
Written by Pastor   
Sunday, December 03 2017 00:00

“As He drew near to Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging.  And hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what this meant.  They told him, ‘Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.’”  Luke 18:35-37 ESV

A beautiful moment of hope . . . a blind man, sitting as he always sits, seeking the help of those passing by the busy thoroughfare.  A day like any other, except this day –  Jesus comes by.  This day he doesn’t cry out for alms but for a taste of the healing that he’s heard so much about.

“And he cried out, ‘Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!’”  Luke 18:38 ESV

A cry of desperation, a cry of hope . . . that this day would end like no other day had before – with sight!

“‘What do you want Me to do for you?’  He said, ‘Lord, let me recover my sight.’  And Jesus said to him, ‘Recover your sight; your faith has made you well.’  And immediately he recovered his sight and followed Him, glorifying God.  And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.”  Luke 18:41-43 ESV

This encounter between our Lord and hopelessness, clearly teaches us that what is impossible with man is a moment of healing with God.

Our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness!

He is our rock of hope!
