    Fear, Love, and Forgiveness
    Since 1984, the month of January, and a Sunday near the 3rd week of January have been designated to celebrate the Sanctity of Human Life.  Sanctity of Life is not just about abortion, however.  It's about recognizing that all are created in God’s image and that every person is valuable to God – from the womb to the tomb.  When it comes to talking about the Sanctity of Life, we need to understand the potential fears, all the while focusing on love and forgiveness.
     
    God loves us and our lives are precious to Him.

    Disagreeing Without Being Disagreeable
    Series: Romans
    There will always be times when we disagree with someone over something, even in the church.  But, not every disagreement needs to devolve into an argument.
     
    In the opening paragraphs of Romans 14, Paul offers 3 suggestions on how we can disagree without being disagreeable.  1st, he calls us to stop judging one another.  2nd, he encourages us to serve God the best we know how.  And, 3rd, he tells us to save the judgment for God.
     
    Live for the Lord and don’t look for reasons to rundown other Christians.

    New Year, New You
    Series: New Year
    A new year is a time for new things, maybe even a new you.  There is one way above all others to change our lives for the better. It comes with a 100% guarantee and is ours not as a result of what we accomplish, but what we accept.  God offers us new life through faith in Christ.
     
    In the middle of 2 Corinthians, Paul describes 6 new things that are a part of this new life: 1) A New Recognition; 2) A New Resource; 3) A New Relationship; 4) A New Responsibility; 5) A New Righteousness; and 6) A New Reality.
     
    Respond to God’s offer of new life, and be ready to share the Good News with others.

    Sheep, Shepherds, and the Savior
    Series: Christmas
    The Christmas story is very familiar to us. We know about Mary & Joseph, their trip to Bethlehem, that there was no room in the inn and that they stayed in the stable where the baby Jesus was finally born.  We’re familiar with the wise men and most of the events surrounding that first Christmas.  But, what can escape our notice is that this most significant event in human history was first announced to some of the least significant people of that time – the shepherds!
     
    These shepherds were forever changed by what they heard and saw.  They were regular guys, who were receptive to God’s revelation, they responded, and rejoiced at His truth.  The same can be true for each of us today.
     
    Receive God’s Good News and respond in faith.

    Do You Hear What I Hear?
    Series: Christmas
    As you listen to the sounds of Christmas around you, particularly the Christmas story, what do you hear?  In the words of a familiar Christmas song, “Do You Hear What I Hear?”  Luke 1:39-45 contains three things we need to hear: 1) Hear God's Joyful Promises; 2) Hear God's Voice of Blessings; and 3) Hear God's offer of Salvation.
     
    God does what He says.

    The Imitation Game
    Series: Christmas
    The greatest gift of Christmas is Christ – His birth, His life, His death & His resurrection.  All of this works together to provide God’s offer of forgiveness and salvation from sin through faith in His Son.  But, there is another aspect of God’s gift to us in Christ – it’s found in His example to us.  Jesus is the perfect example of how God would have us live our lives.  We won’t go wrong by imitating Christ.
     
    In Paul's letter to the Philippian church, he calls us to 1) Imitate Christ’s Example; 2) Imitate Christ’s Actions; and 3) Acknowledge Christ’s Sovereignty.
     
    We should have a Christ like attitude of humility .

    The Incomparable Christ
    Series: Christmas
    The month of December rightly finds us focusing on the birth of our Savior.  But, this Christmas season I want to make sure we focus on Christ, not just on Christmas.  We understand Christ and His relationship to Christmas. In Colossians 1:15-20, Paul helps us broaden our focus.  There we see: 1) Christ and His relationship to God – Jesus is fully God!  2) Christ and His relationship to Creation – Jesus is the Creator & Sustainer!  And 3) Christ and His relationship to the Church – Jesus is the Chief of the Church!
     
    The Son of God is supreme over all, sustaining all, and seeking to reconcile all.

    The Purifying Power of Hope
    Series: Romans
    As Paul finishes up Romans 13, he summarizes why we should be striving to be good citizens and good neighbors – it is because we are awaiting the Lord’s return.  This should have an impact on how we live our daily lives.  1) We need to wake up and live for Christ; 2) We need to clean up and live like Christ; and 3) We need to suit up an fight with Christ.
     
    Our hope in the Lord should lead us to live lives of righteousness.
