We use Facebook to try and feel omnipresent like God. God is in all places at all times, and with Facebook we feel like we can be present everywhere, too.

We use Amazon to try and feel omnipotent like God. God can do all things effortlessly, and with Amazon we feel like we can get anything we want with a single click.

And Twitter, well, Twitter is just the devil.

Afraid of Death No More

Sunday’s Easter message was called Afraid of Death No More, taken from Hebrews 2:14-15 and other Scriptures. Here is a brief outline of the message:

Seven fears related to death:
   1) Fear of the process: Jesus is with you
      – Psalm 23:4
   2) Fear of non-existence: You will be alive and well
      – John 11:25-26
   3) Fear of bodily decay: You will receive a new body
      – 1 Corinthians 15:51-54; Philippians 3:21
   4) Fear of loss: To live is Christ and to die is gain
      – Philippians 1:21
   5) Fear of punishment: No condemnation for those in Christ
      – Romans 8:1
   6) Fear of leaving loved ones behind: We will be together
      – 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
   7) Fear of the unknown: Heaven will be perfect in every way
      – 1 Corinthians 2:9; Revelation 21:1-4

Three questions:
   1) Where did I come from?
   2) Where am I going?
   3) What happens when I get there?
      – Hebrews 10:26-27; Matthew 28:5)

“The ordinary so extraordinary” by Madeleine L’Engle

Here is a wonderful Christmas poem by Madeleine L’Engle:

“The ordinary so extraordinary”

He came, quietly impossible,
Out of a young girl’s womb,
A love as amazingly marvelous
As his bursting from the tomb.

This child was fully human,
This child was wholly God.
The hands of All Love fashioned him
Of mortal flesh and bone and blood,

The ordinary so extraordinary
The stars shook in the sky
As the Lord of all the universe
Was born to live, to love, to die.

He came, quietly impossible:
Nothing will ever be the same:
Jesus, the Light of every heart—
The God we know by Name.

L’Engle, Madeleine. Miracle on 10th Street (p. 65). The Crown Publishing Group.

A Christmas Sonnet by William Leighton

Here is a wonderful poem and theological reflection by William Leighton (1841–1869) on the incarnation of Jesus as the infinite God-man at Christmas.

“Great Son of God, but born the son of man”

Great Son of God, but born the son of man,
One subject of a double substance framed:
Wherein nor manhood lost, nor godhead won
But of them both at once one Christ was named.

Before all times begot, in time created,
The Lord of Lords, a servant form retaining,
And yet no former form thereby abated:
In servant’s form, the form of God remaining.

Great Son of God, than whom there is no greater
No not the Father in His great divinity,
As God creator and as man a creature:
(For more and less, agree not in infinity.)

Teach me to know how man by God assumed
Is both, and yet not man by God consumed.

William Leighton (1841–1869) was a Scottish poet who died of typhoid fever when he was twenty-eight years old. His family moved to England when he was seven years old. He began writing poetry at a young age and was an active member of several literary societies. A number of his poems were published in local literary papers while he was still living, and several collections of his poems were published in the 1870’s following his death. A complete edition of The Poems of William Leighton was published in 1890. (Source: Dictionary of National Biography/Wikisourse)

Nine Ways to Build Intimacy with Christ

Leighton Ford on nine ways to build intimacy with Christ:

1. At bedtime, be at peace with the Lord (Psalm 4:4-8, Eph 4:26)

2. During sleep, rest in the Lord (Psalm 3:5, 121:4, 127:2)

3. When sleepless, commune with the Lord (Psalm 63:6,7)

4. In the morning, ask of the Lord (Psalm 5:3)

5. During the day, talk to the Lord (Psalm 25:4,5)

6. On the Sabbath, remember the Lord (Psalm 95:6-8)

7. In times of trouble, wait for the Lord (Psalm 37:5-7)

8. At all times, praise the Lord (Psalm 34:1)

9. Always and forever, be at home with the Lord (Psalm 27:4, 23:6)

From: Leighton Ford, Nine Ways to Build Intimacy with Christ (6230 Fairview Road, Suite 300, Charlotte, NC 28210).

Found in: Michael Frank Sabo, The Life I Want in Christ, p. 107.

C. S. Lewis: Discouraged about Writing

C. S. Lewis was fifty years old, looking back on his writing career and wondering if he had anything left to offer. He wrote to a friend on January 14, 1949:

“As for my own work, I would not wish to deceive you with vain hope. I am now in my fiftieth year. I feel my zeal for writing, and whatever talent I originally possessed, to be decreasing; nor (I believe) do I please my readers as I used to…. If it shall please God that I write more books, blessed be He. If it shall not please Him, again, blessed be He. Perhaps it will be the most wholesome thing for my soul that I lose both fame and skill lest I were to fall into that evil disease, vainglory.” (Hooper, Collected Letters 2.905-906)

Later that same year Lewis wrote The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first of seven books in The Chronicles of Narnia series, the work for which he is best known today.

Are you discouraged? Don’t give up! You never know what God still has in store for you to do!

A Quarantine Prayer

“Dear Lord, as our hair grows longer, and our patience grows shorter, please give us strength for these troubled times!”


Coronavirus Q & A and the Bible

The following is a Coronavirus Q & A session I did for our church this week answering the following five questions about coronavirus and the Bible:

1. Is the coronavirus God’s judgment for sin on the earth?
2. If God is all-good and all-powerful, why doesn’t he stop the suffering?
3. Why do Christians sometimes get sick and die?
4. Does the coronavirus mean that Jesus is coming back soon?
5. How does God want me to respond to the coronavirus?

Click here for a transcript of the video.

Coronavirus Q & A (Video length: 20:30)


Coronavirus and God’s Protective Care

Today’s message was called Coronavirus and God’s Protective Care, taken from Psalm 91:1-16. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. Trust God (1-2)
   A. Dwell in the shelter of the Most High (1)
   B. Say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and fortress.” (2)

II. Do not fear (3-8)
   A. God covers you with his wings (3-4)
      – Psalm 57:1
   B. God is with you day and night (5-6)
      – Psalm 121:3-6
   C. God is with you no matter how bad it gets (7-8)
      – 1 Peter 3:14

III. Look to God for protection (9-13)
   A. No harm will befall you (9-10)
      – Psalm 139:16
   B. God’s angels are guarding you (11-12)
      – Matthew 18:10
   C. God gives you power over the enemy (13)
      – Luke 12:4-5
Two errors to avoid when claiming God’s promises:
   1) Do not be foolish and test the Lord (Matthew 4:5-7)
   2) Do not limit God’s promises to this life only (Philippians 1:21)

IV. Rest in God’s love (14-16)
   A. God rescues and protects his people (14)
   B. God answers the prayers of his people (15)
   C. God gives eternal life to his people (16)
      – John 10:28
Nothing can separate us from God’s love! (Romans 8:37-39)
