December 30, 2007 If I asked you if people liked change, you would all probably just instinctively say, “No.” And yet New Year’s Day is a day to change, a day to start anew some aspirations that will hopefully lead to something better. Everybody seems to want to make a change on this day that would impact…

If Magi were so despised by the culture and condemned by the Scripture, why did Matthew place them at the presence of Christ, God’s Son? In fact, this is not the only scandalous story he told. Let's look at the provocative message of Matthew's Magi story.

The gifts the Magi brought to Jesus pointed back to the Tabernacle and illustrate how Jesus "tabernacled among us."

The Magi, Matthew 2:1-2 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, "Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him." Who are these wise men? From…

True worship does not originate with plans and programs, but starts in a heart that has experienced the saving grace of God. Worship is essentially our response to God's grace.

The Magi help us to learn how to deal with disappointment in life. Let us look for Christ and be open to His Divine intervention.
Christmas for the Broken
Bruce Goettsche • Union Church of La Harpe Illinois • Sermon • • 84 views
Some of our Christmas traditions are rather confused. Most of us know that Jesus was not born on December 25th; that is just the day we celebrate his birth. He was not born in the year 1 or 0! He was actually born likely in 4-6 B.C. But perhaps one of the biggest areas of confusion come when talking…

From the East Most likely from Media or Persia. Could have been as short as 500 but if they came for Persia it was probably around 1000. Camel’s can travel 25 miles a day with a heavy load. That would be pushing it but with 25 miles a day it would have taken around 40 days. If they had to go by foot…

Christmas was over almost two weeks ago. New Year’s has come and gone, and the vast majority of us are back to our “normal routine”. However, the Season of Advent does not officially end until midnight tonight. Some of you who grew up in a faith-tradition other than Baptist may know that this is the…

We’re all familiar with the story of the wise men who came to see Jesus sometime after he was born. We tend to assume that Jesus was a newborn when they came, but the fact is that he was probably closer to two old. We know this for two reasons. First, he is consistently referred to in this chapter as…

The Christmas story is about journeys. We know this to be true. It starts with Mary and Joseph heading to Bethlehem. The Magi come and journey for probably up to 2 years to see the Christ. Yet, if I am honest this is where I see things essentially stopping. The Christmas journey is over. Christmas ends…

20201220 Earlier this week I was having a conversation with Shannon and the girls about the different Christmas carols and the Bible stories they were based on. We started talking about part of the song “What Child is This?” where it says, This this is Christ the King Whom shepherds guard and angels…

Every page of the Old Testament is about Jesus. That might sound like a strange thing to say, since the birth of Jesus doesn’t happen until the New Testament. But from the third chapter of Genesis, where the first promise of the Savior is given, to the last prophet, Malachi, the central theme of the…

When I mention Mona Lisa , The Scream , and Impression, Sunrise , what comes to mind? If you thought, “They’re all famous paintings,” you’re correct. They actually have a couple of other things in common. The first is that they’re all considered to be tremendously valuable—you might even call them treasures…

At a time of celebration, perhaps you’re experiencing changes that are challenging your faith. The good news is that this is the season where we're reminded of God's unwavering love, promise, and miracle. It is the one that manifest joy to the world. You wonder how?, GOD CAN BECAUSE GOD IS!
