The Beatitudes: Poor in Spirit

The Beatitudes deal heavily with our character, for the Kingdom life is defined by the inner man. Kingdom life is about the attitude of the heart. Poor in spirit means a complete dependence upon God. It is humility of spirit, understanding our own spiritual emptiness.

The Beatitudes: Poor in Spirit

Holy Spirit Provision

In the context of John 14, we see Christ striving to comfort His disciples. He promised them that He would return for them, and would not leave them alone. Christ reveals that He was going to send “another Helper or Comforter”; this Comforter was one who would take the place of Christ in their life. The Greek word translated “Helper” or “Comforter” is παρακλητος (parakletos) and signifies one who is “summoned to one's aid, called to one’s side”. It is a legal term and is used to describe Christ as our “Advocate” in 1 John 2. (See 1 John 2:1-2) The Holy Spirit has been given to us to provide every part of our spiritual life. (See Romans 8:15) Holy Spirit Provision is the key to divine peace, power, and perspective.

Holy Spirit Provision

We are Christians

As the body of believers grew in Antioch, and the general population found themselves rubbing shoulders with these people, the local secular society sought for a way to describe those who were devoted to and taught that Jesus was the Christ. Therefore, they took the Greek term for the Messiah, the Anointed One, “Christ”, and attached it to a Latin suffix meaning “belonging to the party of”. The devotion and change in the believers at the church of Antioch were so radical that the World gave them a new party classification. They called them “Christianos” or “Christian”. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (Acts 11:26) This term that has become so mainstream over last 1500 years was not a term that the early believers chose, they did not desire a name for themselves the only thing they longed for was to know Christ better, to be more like Him, and to share Him with the world. (SeePhilippians 3:10) Their passion was Jesus. They were devoted to Him. They w...

The Wise Men Meet Jesus: The Message of Christ

Away in a manger was Christ, the Messiah, the Anointed One. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11) Who was this Anointed One whom the wise men earnestly awaited and diligently sought? Why was He deserving of their worship? The costly gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, given by these men, showed they believed this baby was worthy of their homage. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. (Matthew 2:11) The message of Christ found in the manger is that He is the Servant-King. The great Mediator between God and man. (See 1 Timothy 2:5)

Isaiah Meets Mary: The Messages of Hope and Love

This season we come together and celebrate not only who but what was “Away in a Manger”. We will take a glimpse at various people connected with the Christmas story and see the messages they communicate through the little part they played in God’s great gift to man. Today we find Isaiah meeting Mary, and the messages of hope and love that was found Away in a Manger. Isaiah: The Message of Hope If you were to scan through the message of Isaiah you would find that though he was called to preach of the coming judgement upon Israel for their unfaithfulness, he was, borrowing a title from Roy Hession, “A Good News Preacher”. He did not sugar-coat the truth, exile was coming. Israel and Judah would no longer be able to enjoy the blessings of the promised land. They were on the cusp of very dark times. Yet with almost every bleak message you will find Isaiah breaking forth with the message of hope. Seven hundred years later this Hope arrived, through the virgin Mary. Mary: The Message...

Our Blessings as Children

When we make the choice from the heart to believe that Jesus Christ is God and that through His death, burial, and resurrection we can be brought into a right relationship with the thrice-holy Creator God of the universe, we are eternally adopted into the wealthiest family in the universe and throughout all time. (See Romans 10:9-10) We, who were destitute orphans by birth, have become adopted and this adoption is sealed forever by God the Holy Spirit. (See Ephesians 1:13-14) As the now adopted children of God, we have wealth beyond measure. We are part of a family whose Father owns a cattle on one thousand hills, as God reveals through the Psalmist: For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. (Psalm 50:10) Yet if you want to see the blessings and live in these blessings now, you must look past the physical and set your heart upon the spiritual. Our wealth as the children of God is found in the spiritual, not physical. It is lovely to enjoy good phys...

Our Blessings as Children

The Fair Fight

A fight or an argument can test our relationships, but if we put everything we have discussed to practice through this series, we will be able to navigate through those tumultuous times of life. Yet the struggle we will face is the pull of the old life and those old ways of doing things that do nothing for healthy relationships. The ways of the old life are self-serving, they are only focused on one’s own happiness. They are consumed with vanity and self-gratification. This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. (Ephesians 4:17–19) Within the philosophy of the old life, there is no communicating heart, there is no sacrifice or discipline, ...
