    Scripture TemptationSeptember 15, 2014 - 11:14 am

    One of the problems inherent with using Scripture to make a point is that we are always tempted to extract the things we like and ignore the things that may challenge us.  A passage that illustrates this temptation than Hebrews 10:24-25  And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good […]

  • Quantity & QualitySeptember 10, 2014 - 8:39 am

    In relationships it is necessary to spend quantity time together in order to have quality time experiences.  That’s because it is so difficult to engineer quality time experiences on command.  They are usually spontaneous surprises that are often unexpected serendipities along the way of going about doing what people do when they are together. Just […]

  • Preparing The WaySeptember 2, 2014 - 8:28 pm

    ‘Preparing the Way’ summarizes Luke 1:57-80 as the birth of John anchors him firmly in the prophecies and promises of Israel.  When John arrives, his father, Zechariah, is suddenly filled with the Holy Spirit and he recounts God’s promise to redeem His people through the house of David according to His oath to Abraham.  The […]

A Simple Story

Luke tells us that Mary treasured and pondered the events surrounding Jesus’ birth in her heart.  Instead of wise men, Luke tells us of shepherds out in a field.  No star to guide them to the feeding trough in which He was lain.  No international intrigue with king Herod. Just a simple story about a simple birth in humble circumstances with a dramatic announcement to simple shepherds out in the fields, at night, watching their flocks.

This morning’s lesson is based on Scripture contained int the 2nd chapter of Luke, verses 1-20.

The Bridge

Luke makes it clear that the story of John the Baptist is firmly anchored in God’s plan to redeem mankind.  The promises and prophecies of the Old Testament Scriptures, the history of the Jews and their anticipations, the events of world history and they dynamic involvement of the Holy Spirit all sharpen their focus upon the impending arrival of the Son of God, Jesus Christ.  And so, beginning with John the Baptist’s birth Luke uniquely prepares us for the story of Jesus.

This morning’s sermon is based on the first chapter of Luke, verses 57-80.

Do You Believe?

This morning, we continue through the first chapter of Luke with scripture coming from Luke 1:5-56.

In Genesis 18:14, the Lord promised Abraham and Sarah a son in their old age, asking: “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”  2,000 years later the angel Gabriel came to Mary, a virgin, to inform her that she would carry the Son of God, Himself, and that her aged relative Elizabeth was already 6-months pregnant.  He concluded with the statement: “For nothing is impossible with God.” The challenge to believe God is not new.  As Luke opens his gospel account he immediately confronts our own sense of reality which begs the question we ask this morning: “Do you believe?”
