As we swing into a New Year, let us not forget the basics needed to walk out our faith daily!
We will all inevitably encounter a day that brings the worst life has to throw at us. What will you do? How will you respond? The book of Acts reveals how the new Church responded in their darkest days....we should strive to follow their example.
While this is not the traditional "baby in the manger" Christmas sermon - it's a relevant one for this time of year. As Pastor tells the story of a stuttering choir boy, the reality of the story rings true for us during this holiday season - and for any season in life: "Keep your focus on Jesus."
The birth of a baby can do wonders. The birth of a Savior can do miracles. Come hear how Jesus changed the world!
We've heard stories most of our lives about His 1st Advent: coming as a baby in Bethlehem. Have you received Him into your life (2nd Advent)? And, are you preparing for His 3rd Advent - His physical 2nd coming? Make room for Jesus in your life - your eternity depends on it.

We, like football refs, have authority given to us by a Book and a Higher Power! Are we acknowledging the Touchdowns? Do we throw the penalty flag when His standards are ignored? God has an expectation that believers will play by His Book - anything else results in chaos on the field...

We don't just attend church for the sake of attending church. According to Scripture, now more than ever, we need to assemble together as the Body for strength, encouragement, and discipleship!
Jesus had a real problem with the Pharisees. Spiritual leaders motivated by their own selfish desire to be great and noticed. Preference and imposed "rules" on top of scripture should never be a litmus test as to whether something is truly righteous or not. The standard is His Word. Period.
Trying to trip up Jesus by asking questions they thought He couldn't answer without pinning Himself to the wall didn't work out for the Pharisees, Sadducees, or Scribes. We show pride not trust when we seek to "trap" Jesus...don't be so "smart" spiritually that you're not....
