The Birth of Jesus Christ {Luke 2:7-37}

Born in a Manger
Christ was born in a stable, a place where animals were kept. The stable was probably a cave and the manger a feeding trough for animals. The birth of the Savior, the greatest event in all history, occurred in the most humble of circumstances. Jesus was the King of kings, but he was neither born nor did he live like a king in this life. God’s people are kings and priests, but in this life we must be as he was humble and simple.

A Savior… Christ the Lord
At his birth Jesus is called “a Savior” and it has several implications, (1). As Savior, he has come to deliver us from sin, Satan’s domain, the ungodly world, fear, death and the condemnation of our transgressions (cf. Mt.1:21). (2). The Savior is also “Christ the Lord” who has been anointed as the Messiah of God and the Lord who rules over his people (cf. Mt.1:1). No person can have Jesus as Savior while not submitting to his Lordship.

An Open Letter To My Daughter


    (And a Veiled Exhortation to Christian Fathers and Young Adult Christian Men Everywhere)                                                                                                                                          By Byron Yawn


Love is Better Than Death {Song of Songs 8:6}


King Solomon & Shulamite
The Woman of Shulam
In only one instance does the Song of Solomon identify the bride in the poem as the “Woman of Shulam” (Song 6:13), and no other references directly reveal her identity. Who, then, was this young woman who so passionately became the object of Solomon’s affections? 

Several suggestions have been made. She may have been a woman from Shunem, a town in the territory of Issachar near Jezreel. If so, she would have been known as a Shunammite, but by interchanging the Hebrew letters lamed (l) and nun (n), which was sometimes done, she could also have been known as a Shulamite.

Love is Better Than Wine {Song of Songs 4:10}


King Solomon and the Shulamite

King Solomon was intoxicated with the love of his bride (Song 4:10). The Song of Songs describes in vivid imagery the sights, sounds, and sensations of romantic love. This poem is one of several major treatments of love in Scripture. Other passages from which we can learn a great deal are:-

1.     Moses’ call to the Israelites to learn and practice the love of God toward all (Deut. 10:12-11:22, 30:6-20).

2.     Psalm 45, a “Song of Love” that praises the marriage relationship.

3.     The Book of Hosea, in which God calls the Prophet Hosea, in which God calls the Prophet Hosea to seek out, rescue, and lovingly restore his adulterous wife.

Four Kinds of Love (Matthew 22:34-40) {My Meditation}

Love means many things today. But the Bible is crystal clear about this powerful concept. Greek, the international language of Jesus’ day and the language in which the New Testament was written, had four distinct words for love, each with its own shade of meaning:-

1. Eros denoted the relationship between male and female, especially to lovers, including physical desire, craving, and longing. That word for love is not used in the New Testament.

2. Stergos described affection and was applied especially to the mutual love between family members. It is not used in the New Testament either.

Taking Sin Seriously (Leviticus 1:3-5) {My Meditation}

The ancient Israelites took sin far more seriously than we do. The regular burnt-offering sacrifices (Lev. 1:3-5). They offered required the sacrifice of both finances and time, as well as the ability to slit an animal’s throat.

The required sacrifice for the burnt offering was a bull, which was to be among the best of the herd. Even those who could not afford bulls had to make sacrifices in line with their means (1:10, 14, 5:7-8).

The Lessons of Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 19:24-25) {My Meditation}

Sodom means “place of lime” and Gomorrah means “submersion.”  These cities are notorious for their wickedness and rebellion against God (2 Pet. 2:6).  Judged by God for a variety of sins, including failure to care for the poor and needy despite incredible wealth (Ez.16:49), and for sexual immorality (Jude 7), the cities were destroyed by brimstone and fire that rained from the sky (Gen. 19:24-25).

Today, the region is still barren, even though it was once well watered everywhere (13:10). It is also the site of frequent earthquakes and other geological events. Nearby repositories of salt, asphalt, and sulfur are abundant.

These ill-fated cities remind us that wickedness will not go un-punished. They also show that God not only judges sinful individuals, such as Lot’s wife (19:26), but also entire cities and their surroundings.

Pornography {A Real Look At Toxic Porn, Toxic Sex}


      1. Porn & Addiction - Sex Out of Context
On a cold, dark night, there's nothing better than a blazing fire in the fireplace. You can pile on the wood and let it burn nice and warm. It's safe, warm, relaxing and romantic. Now take that same fire out of the fireplace (which was built for it) and drop it in the middle of the living room. Suddenly it becomes destructive. It can burn down the whole house and kill everyone inside. Sex is like that fire. As long as it's expressed in the protective commitment of a marriage relationship, it's wonderful, warm and romantic. But porn takes sex outside that context.

It's a big business that makes a lot of money and doesn't care how. They'll show you whatever they think will make you come back and buy more. "There were 11,000 porn video titles last year versus 400 movie releases from Hollywood last year...[and] 70,000 pornographic web sites."1

2. What Fuels Porn Addiction?
One of the most vital parts of mental environment is a healthy idea of who we are sexually. If these ideas are polluted, a critical part of who we are becomes twisted. The porn culture tells you that sex, love and intimacy are all the same thing. In porn, people have sex with total strangers -- people they just met. All that matters is my satisfaction. It doesn't matter whose body I'm using, as long as I get it. Porn gets you to think that sex is something you can have anytime, anywhere, with anyone, with no consequences.

The problem with porn's shallow perspective is that relationships are not built on sex, but on commitment, caring and mutual trust. In that context, like fire in the fireplace, sex is wonderful. Being with someone who loves and accepts you, someone who is committed to you for your whole lives together, someone you can give yourself completely to, that is what makes sex really great.

Sin Is A Choice (Gen. 3:6-7) {My Meditation}


What is it in human nature – a nature which God created - that makes us vulnerable to temptation and sin? 

Adam and Eve were created apart from sin, and without the need to sin, yet some characteristic in their makeup allowed sin to enter their lives (Gen. 3:6-7). 

What Was That Characteristic?

Scripture offers two answers to this question. For Eve, the choice to believe a lie was the door-way through which sin entered her life (3:13), 2Cor.11:3, 1 Tim 2:14). For Adam, it was the choice to ignore God’s voice of authority (Gen. 3:17).

Treasures in Jars of Clay {My Meditation}



Christians are “Jars of Clay” who at times experience sadness, tears, troubles, perplexities, weakness and fears (cf. 1:4, 8-9, 7:5). Yet because of the heavenly “treasure” within them, they are not defeated. Christianity is not the removal of weakness, nor is it merely the manifestation of divine power. Rather, it is the manifestation of Divine power through human weakness (2Cor.12:9).

(1). In every affliction we may be more than conquerors through God’s power and love (Rom.8:37). Our weakness, troubles and suffering open us up to Christ’s abundant grace and allow his life to be revealed in our bodies (vv.8-11, cf. 2Cor.12:7-10).

(2). If you experience Christ’s presence and power in your life, absolutely no trouble, sickness or tragedy will cause your spiritual defeat. When outward circumstances become unbearable and your human resources are exhausted, God’s resources are given to expand your faith, hope and strength. Under no circumstances will God forsake his faithful children (Rom.8:35-39, Heb.13:5).

(3). To minister life to another person, we must share Christ’s sufferings and experience the working of death in our lives (v.12). Self-denial, trouble, disappointment and suffering for Christ’s sake will allow our lives to minster grace to others (cf. 11:23-29, Rom.8:36-37, Phil.1:29, 1Pet.4:14). Jesus taught this same great principle of brokenness in John 12:24-25.

The Judgment of God (Rom. 2:1-16)


 1. Introduction:
In the first section of Romans, Paul demonstrates the dastardly nature of sin. In Romans, Paul beautifully balances and emphasizes the nature of God – His love, forgiveness, and righteousness as well as His wrath and judgment – and the eternal destiny of those who reject Him.

Paul declares that the Gentiles are terribly, grossly, sinful (Chap. 1). Paul also shows that the Jews are also sinful (Chap. 2). In Romans 3, we discover Paul’s belief that Every-one is sinful. God’s judgment is always based upon the fact of sin and the potential of salvation through Jesus Christ.

God judgment is unwelcome news. We don’t want to hear about it. However, the bad news must be heard before we can be receptive to the Good News. One reason the church has not done as well stems from the fact that until people are convinced of their sin through the bad news about the reality of judgment, they cannot become receptive to the good news about Jesus’ love and forgiveness.

The Best Taste Yet! (1 Pet. 2:1-2)

1. Introduction:
They say that folks these days don’t like negative things to be said in sermons. If that’s true, then Peter blew it! Suppose 1 Peter 2 is a new sermon. Would you believe how he started? Check out the words, “Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind” (v. 1). Some of the folks would already be upset that the Pastor had been following them around that week. Oh, well.

Apostle Peter is being his direct self. Remember that his purpose is to shake us up a little and make us uncomfortable with anything that is not holy in our lives. The word “therefore” refers to his discussion of being purified by obeying the truth and loving our brothers. He doesn’t want us to miss the point his by being too ambiguous.

2. We Have Some Things to Get Rid Of:
Aside from the fact that things are plain old sin and need to be gotten rid of anyway, let’s view them from the perspective that, when we are indulging in these things, we lose our appetite for righteous things.

What’s The Big Deal of Being Chosen by God? (1 Pet. 1:1-2)

1. Introduction:
As we walk into this first letter from Peter, we must understand that he did not casually write to a bunch of friends in Asia Minor to pass the time of day. He purposed to communicate hope, holiness, and life to people struggling for survival, spiritually and physically. Peter did not write to these folks, asking them to flee for their lives. He sent instructions we all need, for we have a strong tendency to flee from the uncomfortable to the comfortable, i.e., schools, cities, politics, family, and sometimes even the church. We forget that we are called to be uncomfortable (1Pet.2:20-21).

Peter knew that if these folks were going to make it, they must know who they were in Christ. You find strength in knowing who you are! The people needed to know their identity, which in turn would give them a sense of purpose and a reason for the things they were experiencing. If a person falls spiritually, it generally happens because he forgets who he is as a child of God. He begins to let other things identity his life.

Perhaps one of the greatest needs in the Church today is for a renewed sense of identity as Christians. Then, when negative issues confront us, we let them bounce off, not of our emotions or feelings, but rather off of our identity as Christians, as children of God. Only then does life make sense.

What’s the big deal? The big deal is that God’s reputation is at stake as people watch to see how we confront life on a daily basis. So we better know who we are. Peter identifies seven dynamic characteristics in these first two verses, which, if fully understood, will help you face every issue in your life. These words give hope; they promote holiness, and they define life. Let’s see who we are as God sees us.

Love By God’s Definition (1 John 3:11-24)


1. Introduction:
In our previous article we studied 1 John 2:28-3:10. There we saw the first line of demarcation that John gives for the protection of the Church from Satanic counterfeits through being able to determine who is and who was is not a child of God. We identified the first line as the line of righteousness vs. sinfulness.

We saw in our previous discussion that, in verse 10 John drew a backward-looking conclusion and a forward-looking conclusion from his arguments and teaching. The backward-looking conclusion, which had to do with his previous teaching, was that the first test is: sinful conduct. Those who practice sin are not God’s children. Period!

John then gave a forward-looking conclusion, which becomes his premise for what he is about to teach us in 3:11-4:21. This teaching on the second line of demarcation is divided into two sections (3:11-24 and 4:7-21) with a parenthetical teaching on discerning of spirits between them (4:1-6). Today we will examine only the first of these sections on the second line of demarcation. According to John this line is – The visible presence of divine love in our lives – love by God’s definition.

John introduces this truth in verse 11 with the great message that Jesus gave on His final night- “This is the message you heard from the beginning. We should love one another.” What kind of love is in view here? John is going to tell us.

Righteousness vs. Sinfulness (1 John 2:28-3:10)

  1.  Introduction:
It seems that we have become afraid to draw certain lines of distinction between those who are saved and those who are not saved. The scriptures, however, do draw such lines. These distinctions could not be made by us. Only God and we obligated to submit to them.

God has established these distinctions between those who are His children and those who are not His children, not only for our personal knowledge and assurance, but also for protection both individually and collectively (as a Body) from Satanic counterfeiting. John, in his first letter, devoted much time in making these lines of demarcation visible for us. The whole of 1 John could be studied, without any violence to John’s intent, from the point of view that he is answering the question “Who is and who is not a child of God?”

In this short series, we are going to limit ourselves to John’s treatment of this question from 2:28 through 3:24. This first message deals with only 2:28-3:10. (This passage all belongs together; don’t let the chapter division fool you).

 The line of demarcation that John sets before us in these verses could be called: The line of righteousness vs. sinfulness. John introduces this line by pointing to an important truth (v. 28).

A Man After God's Own Heart (1 Samuel 13:13-14)


In Paul's sermon at Antioch, in which he briefly recounts the history of Israel, he refers to the statement made by God concerning David:

"I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will." - Ac 13:22 (cf. 1Sa 13:13-14)

This beautiful compliment, "a man after My own heart", is one that
should characterize every person who wears the name of Christ
a. For David was not only the ancestor of Christ according to the
      flesh... b. But he possessed many of the attitudes that:
      1) Were later perfected by Christ
      2) Should characterize all those who are disciples of Christ

Father's Day: The Model Father (Luke 15:11-32)


The progressive reformer, Jane Addams, in 1911 wrote, "Poor Father has been left out in the cold. He doesn't get much recognition. It would be a good thing if he had a day that would mean recognition of him."

Sixty-one years later, President Richard Nixon signed a bill into law making Father's Day a national holiday.

Although this is not part of the liturgical calendar, I am happy that we recognize this day. The first four of the Ten Commandments deal with our relationship with God. The remaining six instruct us about our relationship with our fellow human beings. The first of these human-relationship commands reads, "'Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which the Lord your God gives you'" (Exodus 20:12).

It is a command with promise. Give honor to your parents, and you will be a person whose life will be a quality existence. Although the person who lives respectful of parents has a much better chance for long life, the primary theme is quality living. So it is fitting that we celebrate Mother's Day and Father's Day.

The reason God includes this in his commands is that it runs against our human nature. Our tendency is to fight authority, whether it be the authority of God or the authority of our parents. We want to be free. We want to do our thing. Someone this week gave me this piece titled "Father."
