In Luke 1 verse 30 you have the visit of the angel to Mary. As the angel comes to Mary to announce to her that she will have a Son. Notice the verse at the top of your outline. ''But the angel said to her, 'Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.''' Now once again are the words - do not be afraid. A great part of the...

In I Corinthians 15:20 the Bible says, "But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept." Because Jesus Christ was raised up from the dead, those of us who have believed on Him will also one day be raised up from the dead. Peter is expressing his adoration of God, not only because of his redemption, but because of his ultimate resurrection...

We have become a nation where the criminal is deified, the victim is vilified, and where evil is called good, and good is called evil. We have become a nation where the life of the snail darter has become more valued than the baby in the womb. We have said, loudly and clearly, by the people we have placed in the highest offices of our nation, ''Our character doesn't matter, why...

How easily we forget that growth occurs when life is hard – not when it's easy. However, it is not until we move beyond the misery stage that we are able to find a magnificent lesson to be learned. The Apostle Peter so masterfully presents in his letter that suffering is not the end. It is only a means to the end...

God has a glorious purpose for those that have been saved by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. His purpose is to finish what he has started in the life of the believer. Salvation is from the penalty of sin; power of sin, once day the presence of sin...

We, in America, have always had a certain confidence in our ability to overcome problems. We have a strong military. We have enjoyed a fairly stable economy, and we've taken courage in a reasonably sound government. However, much has changed. On September 11, 2001, we had the attack on the World Trade Center...

Because of his conversion, the gospel was spread to the ends of the earth, and much of our New Testament is letters that Paul wrote to these churches and his protégés.There is no doubt that his conversion is a dramatic one.In fact, some people will often say, "Great; what can I possibly have in common with his conversion; I didn't have a Damascus Road experience."...

God of hope means he is the author and source of our hope. God can give us hope if we trust in him because he is sovereign over the world he made and therefore controls that happens. Hope motivates us to look ahead or forward with assurance...

Hope is knowing someone believes in you and will never quit on you. Hope is the anchor to life, the word that keeps us going in all seasons of life. Hope sees the present moving towards a good future, even with all its imperfections. Hope has come and we have received this hope in the person of Christ...

Jeremiah has the distinction of being known as the ''weeping prophet'' and with good reason, it seemed (even to Jeremiah) that all he ever talked about was bad news. At one point Jeremiah cried out: Whenever I speak, I cry out proclaiming violence and destruction...'' (Jeremiah 20:8)...

Have you ever noticed that when company is coming over, especially someone new that has never been to your home before that you suddenly feel an immediate and compulsive urge to clean and straighten? When we know guests are coming we all have certain routines and rituals we go through. We prepare our home, family and...

Similarly, we, too, are experiencing the anticipation and longing of Christ. This time we long for His return, where he will set...

As I've mentioned before, Teresa and I met years ago through her brother's church in the Southside of Richmond. I was attending a local church where her brother was pastor and Teresa would often come up on weekends from Virginia Beach to visit him. To be honest I don't know what it was exactly that sparked the...

One week from tomorrow is Easter Sunday. Christians all over the world will be celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. I'm here today to tell you that because of the resurrection of Jesus, there is hope! There is hope in the here in now and there is hope in the hear-after. We see that illustrated on a hill call Calvary and we read about it..

That is why the Bible says that we have this hope as an anchor of the soul. In other words, people put their faith and hope in other people, they put their hope in a situation turning out the way they want it to turn out, they put their hope in their job or their money or their possessions. These things will all disappoint ultimately, but not...

16 ''Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to...

Paul wrote to us back in Ephesians 5 to, ''Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.'' His point was that we are living in the last days before Jesus returns to this earth to complete and perfect His kingdom. But in the meantime, before He comes, we have been...

In the USA every 15 minutes someone takes their own life. That's 35,000 suicides every year. Sadly, suicide occurs among Christians at essentially the same rate as non-Christians. Suicide kills a disproportionate number of young people and the elderly, and it has become increasingly prevalent among returning veterans. More active duty soldiers now...

Two thousands years ago there was another royal visit. His name was Jesus Christ. He came just like you and I did, but, in very humble circumstances. He had a teenage mother that He had to depend on for food, clothing and warmth. He was in a situation where even the animals in that stall could have trampled on Him...

Somewhere Over the Rainbow" is one of my all time favorite tunes. This is how I will always remember the late Judy Garland. In her role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, she personified for me and I suspect for lots of other folks, a fervent longing, a desperate hope that somehow we might all find our way to a better world. Dorothy could not...
