“3 Gifts of Christmas”

‘Tis the season for good news and great joy! We know what the wise men did...

When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.
                                                                                                           Matthew 2:10 (ESV)

The Biblical record of the Christmas story tells us exactly how the wise men felt upon finding Jesus! In Luke’s version of the Christmas story we hear the angels speak of “good news & great joy.”

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy
that will be for all the people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior,
who is Christ the Lord.
                                                                                                        Luke 2:10-11(ESV)

While we could never make a list of all of the good things God gives us, let’s focus in on “3 Very Special Gifts” of Christmas.

 Special Gift #1 New Birth

     The birth of Jesus Christ as the Messiah and our Savior represents the “new birth” available to us through salvation.

Special Gift #2 New Life

     New Life in Christ, there is nothing better! He walks with us, guides us, teaches, protects, heals, all the while leading us in the paths of righteousness.

Special Gift #3 Eternal Hope

     This is the gift that never ends. “Eternal Hope” means we win forever with Him. His goodness never ends. So many gifts...

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
                                                                                                                              Isaiah 9:6-7 (ESV)

The blessings of Christmas are endless. Wherever you are in your walk with Christ, please stop and reflect on “3 Very Special Gifts” of Christmas that last forever.

New Birth! New Life! And Eternal Hope!

Thoughts from the Pastor

In Luke 6:38, Jesus gives the biblical formula for receiving. In somewhat of a paradox to natural thinking Jesus says:

“Give, and it will be given to you.
Good measure, pressed down, shaken together,
running over, will be put into your lap.
for with the measure you use it will be measured back to you."
                                                                                                        Luke 6:38 (ESV)

This biblical equation always brings about positive results for the one who gives. In this season of Thanksgiving, let’s take a closer look. Could it be that in God’s economy, ”the more we bless the more we are blessed?” I have found that to be so!

In this season of Thanksgiving, let’s make sure we carefully consider how much, how often, and in all of our ways that we make it a priority to bless the one that blesses us. His name is “Jesus”. He is the “Savior of the World”, the “Friend” of all friends, our “Healer”, and our “Soon Coming King!

God loves it when we sing praises to Him. If you are looking for a great song of Thanksgiving, there is a great one listed in 1 Chronicles, Chapter 16. David, of Old Testament fame, teaches us how to sing, and how to sing with THANKSGIVING!

More than anything else this holiday season, let us always remember to “Give Thanks!”

Thoughts from the Pastor

“Peace Which Surpasses All”

Have you ever had anything that rocked your world?! Of course you have. Everyone faces those moments. Life is full of unexpected, unplanned, and uncomfortable situations. Yes, there is no question that God gives us many good days, but then it happens! (Some days, about the only thing I can remember is the old phrase “when it rains it pours!")

What do you do when your peace is suddenly shattered? Here’s the best advice I know:

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
Let your reasonableness be known to everyone.
The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God,
which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
                                                                                               Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV)

Let’s talk about that:

     Peace,
     The Bible says,

You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in the Lord forever,
for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.
                                                            Isaiah 26:3-4 (ESV)

The peace that God gives is not changed by your circumstance. You may be affected by your circumstance but God’s peace remains, and believe it or not, it is always available through Him. The Lord God truly is an everlasting rock. That is where our peace that surpasses all understanding comes from. Peace is a promise of God. As promised to believers and as outlined in scripture, there is a peace available to you today that surpasses, passes, transcends, exceeds, and trumps all unplanned circumstances and fears. Always remember this...

The peace of God,
which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
                                                                                     Philippians 4:7 (ESV)

And finally,

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable,
whatever is just, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable,
if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise,
think about these things.
What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—
practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
                                                                                         Philippians 4:8-9 (ESV)

Thoughts from the Pastor

“Hang-Ups, Snags, And Broken Lines!”

In Matthew 4:19 & 20 Jesus said:

“Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Immediately they left their nets and followed him.

Question? What is it that keeps you from following Jesus? Could it be a Hang-Up, Snag, or a Broken Line?

Fishermen understand these terms as problems. When fishing, getting “hung up” is never fun. It means you are in trouble, and your fishing is disrupted, at least for a moment. A hang- up can lead to a snag, and everyone knows a snag is even worse. You’re hung up and now you’re hooked on a snag, your fishing trip is going nowhere! You know what’s next! Unless you get some relief, some miraculous form of relief if you will, you’re going to break your line. Fishing trip over, no luck, and no success unless in some way you can get released from the Hang-up or Snag.

Sound familiar? Not just in fishing, but in life there are plenty of places and times when it’s easy to get hung up or caught on a snag. Spiritually speaking, the devil wants to break your line. He will put little things in your way to try and get you hung up. If that works, he will try and catch you in a snag, maybe even sin resulting in broken lines between you and God.

Don’ t let it happen today! At the first sign of being hung up, give it to Jesus. He cares and understands! Don’t let your hang-ups turn into snags causing you to sin. It is sin that separates us from God. The devil knows that. That is why he is so persistent in trying to get you hung up on things that turn into snags that result in sin, and it is sin that separates us from God!

Following Jesus means walking closely with Him. A close relationship with Him helps us in dealing with our hang-ups, avoiding snags, and overcoming sin. Keep the lines open. Jesus wants to be your best friend. He has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
(Hebrews 13:5 ESV)‚Äč

Happy Fishing, and Smooth Sailing
