God Speaks in Your Language

Have you ever been surrounded by people speaking a language that you don’t understand? You don’t know how to ask for help or for directions. It makes you feel lonely, alienated, and helpless. Thankfully, God speaks in language that each of us understand. Even when we are far away from him, like the three wise men who visit the baby Jesus, God is never far from us and he is always speaking if we will listen.

Poetic Truth

Poetry can be beautiful and it can express truth in ways that prose can’t, but it can also be cryptic! The prologue of the Gospel of John is much like poetry, it is beautiful, and it can be hard to understand at first, but it contains some important truth about who God is and who we are, along with a surprise that is almost too good to be true (but it is true!).

The Light Shining in the Darkness

We depend on light for so many things. It helps us see what we are doing, and the sun is important for our emotional health. Darkness, on the other hand, is often associated with evil. It is not surprising, then, that God uses the image of light shining in the darkness to talk about the coming incarnation of his Son, Jesus Christ.

Humbly Glorify the Lord

Shortly after receiving the news that she would be the bearer of the Son of God, the Virgin Mary goes to visit her relative Elizabeth. Elizabeth, who had long been unable to have a child and was now pregnant, could easily have been jealous of Mary. Mary could have slipped into pride over the role she was to play. These are now, however, the paths that they choose. Instead they are each content and joyful, humbly glorifying the Lord.

Joy in God’s Presence

Sometimes it feels like there is a lot of pressure to be bright and merry this time of the year. Songs blare at us from stores, doctors offices, and car radios telling us to be happy and cheerful. Everywhere you look someone is talking about it being the most wonderful time of the year. For some it really is and for others, this is a time of mourning or sorrow. This attitude often feels as if it flows into our church life. As if we are supposed to will ourselves to be joyful. To pull ourselves up by the bootstraps and make ourselves happy, just choose joy. That is the beauty of our scripture passage today we do not have to make ourselves joyful but rather it is the presence of God that brings joy and freedom.

Freedom for the Captives

What is it like to be released from captivity? This was something that the people of God experienced on a number of occasions in the Old Testament. Psalm 126 reminds us of the ways God has brought freedom in the past, and it gives the encouragement that the God who has always acted in the past will continue to act in the future. Are you experiencing captivity, in some form, right now? This Psalm will bring you hope.

Indestructible Socks (A Thanksgiving Sermon)

Our God is the most excellent provider that you could hope for. Yet, how often do we stop to give thanks for the ways he has blessed us? When we don’t give thanks, we can deceive ourselves into thinking that we are the ones who have provided, but this is a pitfall that comes with some specific dangers.
