The Church of God

As a new year rolls around, we hear much talk of resolutions. Many people have determined to make themselves better in some way beginning with the first day of the year. But for a Christian becoming better in any way is not dependent on a flip of the calendar; it is dependent on God working in us by His grace demonstrated through His Son and delivered through His Spirit. This is always true of us and nothing magical happens on Jan 1 or any new month or week or day that isn't true of us always, because we are in Christ. Maybe you made a resolution this year; that's ok, but when you inevitably fail in keeping it, don't wait until next January to start again. Every moment is ours to redeem through the power of the Spirit to be whom God saved us to be. Resolve to be better now, by God's grace. May God make us all more like His Son as He promised to do.

The God Man

One of my children asked today if we could open our gifts early. The anticipation is building! The day is coming soon, when we will celebrate the incarnation of God. What a wonder as we consider God made flesh and dwelling among us. It is no wonder that we sing songs at this time of year that emphasize the joy and worship that ought to fill our hearts as we welcome the newborn King. This anticipation for Christmas provides a glimpse of how we ought to feel as we anticipate the fulfillment of all God's promises especially the one that Jesus Christ will come again. May we anticipate His second coming even more than we anticipate the celebration of His first coming. Read More

The Perfect King

The nature of the messianic kingdom is such that it provides longed for peace, justice, and eternal life. Only one King could ever bring these things in their fullness to us, and we yet long for this King to return and setup this kingdom. But as we near the birthday of the King and look back on the fulfilled promises that lead up to that day, we can look forward with confident anticipation that the King will come again, and when He does there will be no end to His perfect reign. As we near Christmas day, may the assured hope of the eternal kingdom fill our hearts with worship of our God who will establish that kingdom. Read More
