Good News of a Great Joy

Scripture says that when the fullness of time had come – God sent his son to be born of a woman.  God overshadowed Mary, she was the favored one. In Luke it begins when suddenly appeared a heavenly light, the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them.  It has transformed lives ever since.  We have good news, good news of a great joy. God announces to us a personal message. ...

A Kingdom Has Fallen

We are looking at the demise of the Northern Kingdom.  From the earliest recording we know that there are those that scoffed at God and His promises.  As Christians we often wonder “why doesn’t God do something?”  He is, but by his time not ours. In 2 Peter verse 8 we know that Gods relationship to time is different than ours, a day is like a thousand years, and a...

What Defines EBC?

Is there that “one thing” you are known for?  If you say you like zebra stripes do you all of a sudden begin receiving items that are zebra stripped? Or you are identified as the person who likes zebra stripes? What defines you, or what are you known for?  An even broader question is what defines EBC?  How do you want it defined?  What does the community say about it,...

We are Ambassadors for Christ

We need to develop eternal perspective.  2 Corinthians 4:16-18 gives us 3 contrasts to help us understand.  Verse 16 tells us that outwardly we are declining, getting older, but inwardly we are being renewed (growing) day by day. Verse 17 tells us about light and momentary affliction, our present affliction and our eternal way to glory.  What seems so impossible to bear now, eternally it will seem like a momentary...

We Need to Have a Plan

When it comes to Missions do you ever ask yourself “what difference can I make?”  Sharing the gospel with others is the greatest most joyful task we can accomplish in Jesus Christ. Isaiah 53 tells us of the suffering servant.  He was despised and dejected, pierced for our transgressions, bruised and crushed he poured his life out for our iniquities. Isaiah 55 tells us that Christ was won salvation and...

Righteousness of Abraham

Righteousness is not a matter of actions, conforming to a given set of absolute legal standards as the Pharisees taught, but of behavior which is in keeping with the two-way relationship between God and man.  Thus the righteousness of God appears in his God-like dealings with his people, i.e. in redemption and salvation. Read the account of Abraham in Genesis.  Abraham was loyal to God in the midst of competing...

The Grandmother Who Yelled Treason

God had told Israel that he would provide for them, protect them, and bless them as long as they obeyed him. Israel decided they wanted a King just like all the other nations.  God allowed it, but then the people did not obey him!  They became idol worshipers. We don’t naturally drift toward holiness, we drift toward compromise and call it tolerance. Everyone loves going to grandma’s house, not this...

God Always Keeps His Word

It’s amazing how words change in their meaning.  A slang term used in the 1940’s means something entirely different today.  For instance, a “deadbeat” was someone who bought things on credit, or a waitress was called a “biscuit shooter.” But God does not change.  Malachi 3 states “for I am the Lord, I do not change.” Isaiah tells us that the the word of God will stand forever.  What God...

Our Mandate for Evangelism

We are all called to be missionaries, to share the gospel.  Last week we began learning of the lepers that went to the Syrian camp and found vast amounts of riches, garments, and food.  The couldn’t believe what they had found, yet their statement was ” we do not do well if we remain silent.”  They had good news to share with people who were in the middle of a...

A Change In Times

Often at the end of year a “Person of the Year” is nominated.  It is usually a celebrity, or perhaps an athlete.  But there is a difference between a person of the year and  a person of significance like the profit of God, Elisha.  It is not those who live for today, but those who live for eternity that are significant to God. The peril of the people at this...
