CHRISTMAS: The reality of God’s favor

DURHAM, N.C. (BP) — What do we mean when we talk about the “favor of God”? The house you’ve always wanted goes into foreclosure and you buy it for a steal. Your kids bring their report cards home and it’s straight A’s. You find out that a long lost relative left you a tidy sum of money. Many people may think that God’s favor is something like that. When life seems to break your way, it’s...

Encourage: God keeps His promise

Read again Mary’s song of praise in Luke 1:46-55: “And Mary said: ‘My soul exalts the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has had regard for the humble state of His bondslave; for behold, from this time on all generations will count me blessed. For the Mighty One has done great things for me; and holy is His name. And His mercy is upon generation after generation toward those who fear Him. He has done mighty...

Powerful prayer: A covenant for a God-seeking 2019

As we approach the end of 2018 and enter 2019, what is it that God seeks most from His people? Two things we know for sure are to love Him with all our hearts and seek first His kingdom and righteousness (Matt. 6:33, 22:37; Rev. 2:1). But what could cause 2019 to truly be a year of sweeping personal, family and church renewal? How could the coming year be a turning point in our relationship with God? Throughout history, powerful moves...

Strengthen: Encourage church-wide Bible reading

As another year draws to a close, our thoughts naturally trend toward the celebration of the gift of God’s Son at Christmas. It’s a special time of the year that I pray will be blessed in your family and church. It is also a time of the year when we start to consider the New Year and what it has in store. In the life of the church, that often means new committees and budgets with new emphasis and initiatives. I want to challenge you...

Bible Q&A: Spilled blood & falling towers

I can’t think of any saying of Jesus that seems more relevant than His words in Luke 13:1-9, a somewhat forgotten parable about tragedy and its connection to sin. On His way to Jerusalem, it was reported to Jesus that some Jews from Galilee were murdered at the temple in Jerusalem while trying to worship. The image of the spilled blood of worshippers seems so today’s newspaper. We remember the nine murdered during a prayer service at...
