FAMILY TREE

Saturday, 16 December 2017 by

“…who gave birth to Jesus who is called the Messiah.” Matthew 1:16 Gospel writers, Matthew and Luke offer a very interesting, albeit, controversial look into the the Lord’s human ancestry (Matthew 1:1-17, Luke 3:23-38). Both share the same compelling reason for doing so. Matthew and Luke wanted to prove to their specific audiences – Matthew

THE PREEMINENT CHRIST

Thursday, 14 December 2017 by

“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.” – Colossians 1:15 Long before He was born of a woman, Christ Jesus was the Son of God. He is the image of the invisible God – Christ Jesus is the firstborn of all creation! (Galatians 4:4). Contrary to what heretics and cults

KENOSIS

Wednesday, 13 December 2017 by

“…emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.” Philippians 2:7 Kenosis in Greek means, “to empty and to deprive.” The word captures the breadth and depth of the sacrifice of the Son of God so He could save us from sin. Although controversial, but it is nonetheless,

THE MESSIAH AND THE MANGER

Tuesday, 12 December 2017 by

“This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:12 God gave the shepherds two clues for them to identify the Messiah: a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and a manger. One is not a sign without the other. But together they tell

SPREAD THE WORD

Tuesday, 12 December 2017 by

“When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child.” Luke 2:17 The shepherds in the field have never seen nor heard anything like what they have seen and heard on that unforgettable night! Angels, legions and legions of them, as far as their eyes could see,

CONSOLATION

Monday, 11 December 2017 by

“…waiting for the consolation of Israel…” Luke 2:25 Simeon must have seen already countless babies brought to the temple throughout his long career as a priest. He has probably gotten used hearing these 8-day old infants let out piercing cries as their parents held them up before him so he could present them to the

COME TO WORSHIP

Sunday, 10 December 2017 by

“We saw his star when it came up in the east, and we have come to worship him.” – Matthew 2:2 The coming of the Son of God on earth is an invitation to salvation just as much as it is also an invitation to worship. The magi from the East, despite their vaunted knowledge in

MAGNIFICAT

Saturday, 09 December 2017 by

“And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord” Luke 1:46 “”My soul magnifies the Lord.” “Magnificat anima mea Dominum” “Magnificat” is Latin translation of the English word, “magnify.” It is taken from the opening phrase of Mary’s response when Elizabeth her cousin welcomed Mary with a joyful blessing! “My soul magnifies the Lord…!” (Luke 1:46).

GRACE UPON GRACE

Friday, 08 December 2017 by

“For from his fullness, we have all received grace upon grace” John 1:16 There’s no definition for grace. But what grace lacks in definition, it makes it up in a demonstration. God is the fount of grace. He is its wellspring (James 4:6). This is one singular reason why God is God because He alone

FEAR NOT

Friday, 08 December 2017 by

“Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” Luke 2:10 “Fear not…” This was what the angel Gabriel said at least, on three occasions, in relation to the birth of Jesus. He said it to Zechariah and then to Mary. An unidentified angel also
