You are Salt and Light
Based on Matthew 5:13-16
 
Jesus used a couple of simple things that you’d easily find in this world to teach us what He has made us to be in His kingdom. We are salt because we are the “preservative” in a world decaying of sin. We are light because we will be easily seen by the world as we live our faith and witness to it. Our witnessing for the Lord matters so much! So we always strive to “pass the salt” and “be the light.”

    Trust in God’s Strength…even through the tears
    Based on Matthew 5:4
     
    Nobody likes to be sad, but Jesus talked about how mourning could be a really good thing in a Christian’s life. We mourn over sins in society, and especially our own sins. But Jesus said that we are blessed when we mourn because it shows how the Holy Spirit is active in our hearts and because God offers and gives comfort to us at the same time. Only God’s strength could sustain us when we are sad...by making us glad!

    Baptized…For You
    Series: Epiphany
    Based on Matthew 3:13-17

    When people consider the account of Jesus’ baptism it can get a little confusing. They know baptism is important because through that sacrament God washes our sins away. But Jesus was sinless. He didn’t need forgiveness. It’s good to remember that Jesus was showing his active and passive obedience to His Heavenly Father through His baptism. That’s good news for us! Jesus did everything right - for us. And he passively obeyed His Heavenly Father by journeying to the cross to pay for our sins - a ministry started by His baptism!

    Be Patient, Enduring Hardship
    take-advent-back_thumbBased on James 5:7-11
     
    Everyone needs to learn patience. From children to adults and everyone in between, we need to learn patience. While we rarely suffer hardships for our faith in a physical way, we still have to endure the spiritual attacks on our hearts. James talks about the key to enduring hardship and persevering for the Lord. Trusting our God without question and empowered by his forgiving love - we can persevere and endure what comes our way.

    Setting the Sadducees Stratight
    stand-storm-thumbBased on Luke 20:27-38
     
    The Sadducees tried to set a trap for Jesus with a tricky, difficult question about the resurrection of the dead on the last day. Jesus answered their question brilliantly, but the whole episode reminds us not to think like a Sadducee - to slip into thinking and acting like this life is all there is. As we rejoice in what Jesus has done to make us “triumphant,” we can also look forward to joining all those believers in our Lord who have already gone before us into heaven. (because Jesus made them triumphant, too!) There is so much more for us than just this life!
