From Your Pastor's Heart - December 7, 2014


Good Morning Family!

What a great time we had last Sunday night as we put decorations up in the Lord’s House.  A big thank you goes to all who participated and it looks so very good.  Our Father in Heaven deserves our very best as He gave His very best for us.  He sent His love down in the form of His Son.  Scripture proclaims that Jesus is our Redeemer who is mighty to save!  Glory to the newborn King!

That will be our theme all through December.  It is the title of the musical that our choir has been diligently working on and will present the morning of the 21st.  I have also adopted it as the title for this month’s sermon series as we walk through the events of Jesus’ first coming.

Today, we are going to focus on the earthly father of Jesus.  The Bible doesn’t tell us volumes about Joseph, but it does give us great insight into his character.  After all, God’s choice for the man to be a father to His only begotten Son would need to be a man devoted to God above all else.

I pray that these messages challenge us to be devoted to God above all else.  I hope you know by now that this should be the purpose of every message you will ever here from this pulpit.   This December, as we look at the miraculous virgin birth of Jesus, we will see the tremendous cost of the atonement.  Jesus is not a fire escape, an eternal insurance policy, and no, Jesus is not a “get out of hell free card”.   Our salvation cost Him everything and is not to be treated lightly or flippantly.

If Christmas tells us anything, it tells us of God’s solution to our problem of being lost in our sins.  He came to this earth miraculously.  He lived a perfect life, none of us could live.  He was the perfect sacrifice we could never be.  Then, He rose again to prove to the whole world that He was the One sent from God to be the Savior of the world.

As always, my prayer is that we would all Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”    II Timothy 2:15.

 

Humbly Yours,

Bro Steve
