Restoring the Wonder of Christmas

And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, (Acts 17:26-27, ESV) I've never been close to someone really famous. I've driven around the streets of Hollywood and talked to a few movie stars and even met a few sports figures. But, I can guarantee I won't get a Christmas card from any of them. And, I'm sure none of them even remember my name. It seems that the bigger the "star" the greater distance they are from their fans--probably with good reason. God is infinitely greater than any actor or ball player. In fact, He is not even in the same category. He is completely "other." We are all mere creatures, and He is the creator. That's some distance: the infinite to the finite. God is greater and more glorious than we can comprehend. But, that reality makes what we will celebrate in a few days even more amazing; because this impossible gap is bridged, not by us, but by him. This Sunday, we will celebrate the final Sunday of Advent. It will be a great Sunday with readings, singing special music, and more. Please plan to join us, and hopefully you are bringing along a friend. This a perfect Sunday to invite someone along.

No One Like Him - God's One-ness
Sun, May 31, 2020
He cuts down cedars, or he chooses a cypress tree or an oak and lets it grow strong among the trees of the forest. He plants a cedar and the rain nourishes it. Then it becomes fuel for a man. He takes a part of it and warms himself; he kindles a fire and bakes bread. Also he makes a god and worships it; he makes it an idol and falls down before it. - Isaiah 44:14-15 (ESV) We are monotheist. We believe and confess that there is one God. That's one of the things that makes Judeo-Christian belief unique both historically and among world religions. We almost take it for granted that people would believe otherwise. But what does that mean? How does the scripture talk about it? And why is that important? This week we begin to look at the attributes of God through our doctrinal statement by considering the Oneness of God. I want to encourage you to read through Isaiah 44 as we start this study. This will provide an important grid for the rest of our study.
