The God Who Surprises

There are 5 groups of people named in Luke 1:51-53. They are the proud, the mighty, the rich, the low, and the hungry. These groups can be taken both literally and figuratively. The people God chooses are not the people men would choose. Our God is full of surprises!

The God that Saves

In Luke 1:47 Mary said she rejoiced in God her Savior. In verses 49 and 50 she went on to describe her Savior in three words- mighty, holy, and mercy. The Magnificat has been considered the first hymn of the Church Age. As we study this hymn we are given great reason to sing our praises as Mary did.

The God We Praise

Mary's hymn in Luke 1 is known as "the Magnificat." This song has four parts, each of which is intensely focused on Who God is and on what He has done. Mary's words remind us that praise and rejoicing are essential components of the believer's life.

Hope

There is a kind of hope that is not founded upon anything real. It is a grasping at straws that will not hold us afloat in our time of need. The believer's hope, however, is found in Jesus Christ, and this hope is an anchor for our souls!

One Grateful Leper

On His way to Jerusalem Jesus healed 10 lepers. Only one, a Samaritan, returned to give thanks. It is a story that contains several vital lessons for us, not the least of which is the value and importance of thanksgiving.

Post-Election Believers

Our recent presidential election has been intense and contentious. From Acts 1:6-8 we find three truths we must take to heart as American believers- God's sovereignty, life's uncertainties, and our activity.

Jesus Before Pilate

When He was examined by Pilate there are two great statements Jesus made. The first was, "My kingdom is not of this world." The second was, "I came to bear witness to the truth." These two declarations contain timely Election Day implications.

Go Tell That Fox

Herod Antipas was quite a character, and came from a family known for its violence and evil. When Jesus was threatened in Herod's name He referred without fear to Herod as "that fox." What does this teach us about how we relate to the government officials who rule over us?

The Tax Trap

When Jesus was asked about paying taxes to Caesar it was a trap. The question was asked by enemies seeking to do Him harm. Opposition is a part of life for the believer, as it was for Jesus. Jesus's answer, however, went right to the issue that every person must face.

Overcoming Powerlessness

We suffer much loss when our identity is not secure in Christ. One such loss involves the sense of powerlessness we live under when we don't know who we are as children of God. We can do all things through Christ Who strengthens us!
