Advent | THE STEADFAST LOVE OF GOD
Series: Advent
The Psalms sing of God’s love throughout. Psalms 107, 109, and 118 all repeat the loving refrain, but none compares with the steady rhythm of Psalm 136. In 26 verses, the “steadfast love” of God is emphatically proclaimed 26 times. The steadfast love of God is what this Psalm is all about, and it reminds us of the substance of such love. God’s love is no flippant thing; He loves purposefully, profoundly, and powerfully. We shall explore the steadfast love of God from this Psalm with a special focus on the season of Advent. God’s love is most notable in the coming of Christ.

    Advent | The Promise Of Day In The Darkest Of Night
    Series: Advent
    Malachi spoke to a disillusioned, discouraged, and doubting people. They seemed unable to harmonize their life experiences with the prophetic promises of God. Rather than enjoying a glorious Messianic age, they were impoverished, oppressed, and cynical about God and His promises. Malachi’s words confront these skeptical people who are living out their skepticism. Bad thinking and believing has turned into bad acting and living. This confrontation and encouragement is applicable in our day as well. One might well argue that American Christianity has become quite similar to the people of God to whom Malachi spoke.

    Advent | The Picture pf the Promise in the Passover Lamb
    Series: Advent
    The God of the Bible is the ruler of history. From the very beginning of creation, He has been making promises and making good on them. One of the major promises of God in the Bible is that there would be (and now is) an eternal and human King who rules all things with both justice and grace. The Old Testament is full of allusions to these promises, and the New Testament is very interested in showing that Jesus Christ fulfills them. This alone is a fascinating story line, but it is truly enthralling when one considered that repentant sinners are also promised intimate union with this same King.

    Advent | Creation, Fall, and Promise
    Series: Advent
    Christmas is a time of expectancy and celebration. Traditionally, many have enjoyed anticipating and commemorating the arrival of Jesus Christ by way of methodically recalling all that led up to the first Advent of Christ. Advent simply means “coming,” and we celebrate the Jesus’ first coming during the Christmas season. We want to remember that Christ’s coming was not unexpected for some who experienced it, but His arrival had been predicted for centuries. This message is the first of 4 that are designed to recall how God promised a Savior from the very beginning and reiterated that promise throughout history. It all started with Creation, and everything picked up speed from there.
