    December 24: Sleep In Heavenly Peace

                   

    There is little peace on planet earth. The headlines, now here at home, rob us of our peace and make us fear for the future. But Micah promised the baby born in little Bethlehem would have great power. His love would allow us to live securely and he would become our peace.

    December 17: Jesus Shepherds His People

                   

    Christmas can be painful if people are far apart. Holidays are hard for the separated and divorced and for families whose bonds have been ripped apart by sin. But Jeremiah promised that Jesus would be “our righteousness,” the gift that makes our relationship with God right.

    December 10: Christ Is The Light Of The World

                   

    Some of us remember driving around town to check out the lights. In the midst of the dark season of winter, lights wow and impress us and bring joy to our hearts. Jesus did the same thing. Isaiah promised that those living in the land of the shadow of death would see a dawning light. Jesus is wonderful, a counselor, a perfect father who never leaves, a king over all governments, and so much more.

    December 3: God Is With Us

                   

    One of the magical things about Christmas is being with people. From family celebrations to work parties to special services, we tend to gather with others who bring us laughter and joy (hopefully!). But the greatest part of Christmas is knowing that God is with us. The virgin gave birth to a child and called him Immanuel.

    November 26: The First Christmas Promise

                   

    Jesus first “appears” in a promise made to two of history’s biggest failures, Adam and Eve. Although their doubt and sin brought death, pain, and frustration into our world, God made them the oldest promise of all, a promise to crush the Devil and his accusations. We might feel like failures too, especially around the Christmas season. Maybe we didn’t keep our promises to God or our resolutions to be better people. But God’s old school promise still stands.

    August 6: Love In The Grey Areas 

                   

    Why do church people chip away at each other? Why is everything an argument—from the song selection to the color of the carpet?

    July 30: Understanding Election

                   

    Does God choose people to go to heaven? Some people? All people? Why would God ever choose me after all the mess I have made? What about people who don’t believe in God? Is their lack of faith God’s fault? Romans spends three chapters trying to answer the challenging questions about God’s choices.

    July 9: Jesus Saves Those Who Struggle 

                   

    Do real Christians really sin? Do real Christians want to sin? If Christians love Jesus, why do they keep doing the stuff Jesus hates? Is their faith fake? Romans 7 is a transparent answer to those essential questions.

    Is Jesus the best excuse to be bad? If he loves us unconditionally and forgives us for every sin, why not enjoy sin? Why not do what is easy and convenient? Romans 6 answers those logically questions clearly and powerfully.

    June 11: The Good Thing About Bad News 

                   

    As much as we hate to be judged, that is what we do all day long. Judging other people’s character, choices, clothes, personality, driving, parenting, and pretty much everything else. In this section of Romans, Paul gives us an honest, unchanging standard for thinking about ourselves and for other people. (Warning: This message is not for the faint of heart!)

    June 4: Old News is Good News 

                   

    We are all desperate for good news, for something more than the temporary high of another text or last-second victory. We want what people used to call “gospel,” the kind of good news that goes on and one. That is exactly what Paul is offering to the Romans and to us in the introduction to his famous letter.
