Spiritual Eyes to See Spiritual Realities (1 Cor 2)
Sometimes we are united by common experiences and circumstances. As he called the Corinthian church to unity, Paul reminded them that when the Spirit of God indwells us, because of our faith in Jesus, then there are some things we grasp that are not fully understood by those who have not yet trusted Jesus. This is should not cause us to be arrogant, but it should draw us together in community.

    Keeping It Simple (1 Cor 1:18-31)
    Are you on a journey that leads to the message of the cross? Or are you on a journey that is determined by your own standards? The Apostle Paul reminds his readers and us that the core message of the cross, is the first and only message in being right with God.  All other attempts to reach God will come up empty.

    Discovering the Heart of Christmas: Promise (Luke 1:53-55)
    Every brightly wrapped package is a promise. A promise of a need met. A promise of a want fulfilled. And yet for every promise kept all to many of us are fully aware of the pain of promises broken. As humans we make promises but cannot fully control the circumstances to fulfill every made promise. But God can. God did. God does. The birth of Jesus is a promise kept and all humanity benefits.

    Discovering the Heart of Christmas: Humility
    God knows us at the core of our being. He is fully aware of our deepest thoughts. And so he knows exactly what to allow into our lives to bring us to a point of being willing to serve Him and others. God is not impressed by human displays of power and wealth. He uses the humble to do great things for his kingdom. We see God’s power in humility as we examine the words of his humble servant Mary.

    Discovering the Heart of Christmas: Mercy (Luke 1:49-50)
    It seems that this is a time of year when so many are shown mercy. Organizations that are based on compassion to others see an uptick in charitable giving. People talk about wanting to give back. But what happens in January? Where is the mercy then. If part of the heart of Christmas is mercy, it would seem God wants it to last far beyond one month of the year.

    Discovering the Heart of Christmas: Belief (Luke 1:46-48)
    What would cause a young girl to be willing to have her entire future turned upside down? In the case of Mary it all hinged on what she believed about God. She believed that God was fulfilling an ancient promise and allowing her to be part of the process. Her belief determined her actions and is reflected in her song.
