O Come, Thou Dayspring

December is the darkest month of the year, and we will soon experience the darkest day of the year. We don’t particularly enjoy the darkness, but it provides a fitting time of year for the celebration of Christmas. The Scriptures compare our sin to darkness (cf. Rm. 1:21; Isa. 9:2), and Jesus Christ to a light (cf. Jn. 1:4-5; Isa. 9:2). Christmas bursts into our calendar at the darkest most depressing time of the year with lights, celebrations, and parties. So also, when sin is at its darkest, the incarnation provides light and hope in the glory of Jesus Christ and the gospel. The hope of Christmas is light instead of darkness; peace instead of brokenness; and righteousness instead of sin. As the Dayspring continues His rise in our hearts, may He chase away the deathly shadows and guide us into peace. Read More

O Come, Thou Rod of Jesse

As we begin the celebration of the Advent season, the reality of Christ’s first coming ought to naturally cause us to anticipate His second coming—the sermon text for this week does just that. Isaiah 11 is rich in imagery as the prophet calls our attention to the description and the rule of “the Shoot of Jesse.” In verse 5 we are told that He will wear the belt of righteousness and faithfulness. Interestingly enough, the Apostle Paul appears to make direct application for the believer by calling us to wear "the belt of truth" (Eph. 6:14). He goes on to highlight the rest of God’s armor from the text of Isaiah 59. As believers we are called to live and proclaim truthfulness and righteousness. The Shoot of Jesse compels us to be a people of impeccable integrity in a world of sin and corruption. How easy it is to cave in to the need for human approval or shrink back because of the fear of man. Yet, Isaiah says, “ His delight shall be in the fear of the LORD” (11:3), and for this reason the Shoot of Jesse “does not judge by what His eyes see or by what His ears hear.” Rather, He lives in total commitment to truth, which is expressed by His delight in the fear of Yahweh. Standing in awe of God is the key to living and proclaiming truth unashamedly. As we await the glorious return of Christ, may the truth of God’s Word guide us in our pursuit to live and look like Jesus. - Pastor Nate Wagner Read More

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

God promised to bring salvation through His Messiah as far back as humanity’s first sin in the garden. From that time forward, God gave hints as to when and how He would turn that promise into reality, but it wasn’t fast. Humanity waited at least 4,000 years from the time of the fall to the time of the Christ. Some waited eagerly, looking forward to the time when salvation would be realized and faith would become sight, but many others lived in indifference, as if God’s promise to save meant nothing or perhaps wasn’t true at all. This kind of indifference leads to doubt, which eventually produces rebellion against God, who calls His people and all people to make Him the focus of their trust and the object of their hope. One specific person who rebelled in this way was King Ahaz of Judah. His refusal to trust tested God’s patience and brought the prophecy of sure judgment on the rebellious house of David. But even in the bad news of judgment, the hope of the Messiah, Emmanuel, shone bright. God provided another piece to the puzzle, another hint at when and where, so that those who obediently believed might continue to hope and trust. May we join those who believed, and may we long for Emmanuel to come again. Read More
