Brief messages on biblical truths concerning various subjects. Christ centered, God focused teaching covering a wide variety of important truths are presented in an engaging and edifying manner to help believers mature in the knowledge and practice of their faith.
Telling the Story -2 Luke
How do you begin to tell the narrative of Jesus of Nazareth son of Mary in the days of his ministry? There are four gospel narrative accounts and Luke is one of them. He begins with the birth narratives and continues in an orderly sequence to Jesus resurrection and ascension. His narrative uses certain key names or titles to communicate who Jesus is and what he came to do.
Christmas Hymns Theology
Perhaps at no other time of year is good Biblical theology sung as it is during the Christmas season. There is much fluff in some Christmas songs that has little to do with Jesus and the coming of Messiah but there are a number of Christmas/ Advent hymns that carry the message of who Jesus is and why he came and the result of our faith in him. This podcast considers two of Charles Wesley incarnation hymns- Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus and Hark! the Herald Angel Sings.
A Personal Word to Jesus
One of my favorite hymns is "I Greet Thee Who My Sure Redeemer Art" or modern English I Greet You Who Are My Sure Redeemer. In this episode we read and explore the meaning of the text. It is a personal word addressed directly to the Lord Jesus whom we acknowledge to be our Redeemer Savior King who did suffer for us. We turn to him to request what we need most in light of his glorious person and nature.
Telling the Story-1 Matthew and Mark
How do you begin to tell the story, the narrative of Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of Mary and Messiah. We have four written narratives in the New Testament. Two are written by direct apostles who travel with Jesus during the 3 years of his ministry, Matthew also called Levi and John. Two are written by close associates of apostles. Mark related the memories and preaching of Peter. Luke is a close associate and travel companion with Paul. He uses personal historical research to give an orderly account. Then we have a fifth narrative of Jesus current ministry in heaven based on the fulfillment of the Old Covenant by Jesus in the Epistle to the Hebrews. All these writings we refer to as the Gospel. They have the power when received in faith to connect us to God in Jesus his unique Son.
Christmas Gift Assessment
Gift giving is often an activity of the Christmas season. But it can be very superficial and phony. How do we assess our giving? We ask hard questions of ourselves and give honest response before God. Here are some questions to help us in this process.
The Manger Sign
When Jesus was born from Mary she first placed him in a manger for his first bed. This was open box to hold feed for livestock not the usual baby bed! This became the sign that the angel gave to the shepherds so they could locate the infant Messiah. But the manger sign tells us far more than the location of Jesus first bed. It also testifies of Jesus person, his mission and his experience. come let us go straight to Bethlehem and see what has happened which the Lord has made known to us.
