  • SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE SUNDAY

    Genesis 1:26-31 Genesis 2:7, 15-24 Psalm 139:13-17 Jeremiah 1:4, 5 Galatians 1:15 God’s knowledge of, and involvement with, human life begins long before physical conception occurs. God told the prophet that He “knew” him long before he was conceived in his mother. The Hebrew verb used in this verse for “to know” is yada, which conveys great meaning in the Old Testament, going far deeper than mere intellectual knowledge or awareness. Yada means personal commitment and intimate experience with the person known. Yada is used for the sexual union between husband and wife (Gen. 4:1). God not only knew “about” Jeremiah, he “knew” him and was involved in a personal way with him before he was conceived. This personal and intimate involvement by God in individual lives extends to this personalized involvement in their conception and development. God says that each life is “woven” (Hebrew, sakak “to weave”) by Him (Gen. 2:7, Ps. 139:13) and that He knits together (Hebrew, raqam “to embroider”) each human frame (Hebrew, estem “skeleton”) in the womb (Ps. 139:15). God’s personal, detailed, intimate, divine involvement with each human life is what imparts to each life its sacred value and unique worth. It is God’s personal interest in, and involvement with, each human life which reveals that He has a “personalized” plan for each human being even prior to actual conception (Ps. 119:16; 127:3; Is. 43:7-8; Eph. 2:10). Thus, abortion (the killing of an unborn human being), infanticide (the killing of the ill and the infirm), and homicide (the murder of human beings at any stage in life) are all a revolt against God and an attempt to usurp the prerogatives and plans of the Creator. God loathes such bloodshed and rebellion and has made it clear that He will judge those who perpetrate or condone such bloodshed (Gen. 9:5-6; Ex. 20:13). Sermon Video

  • “WHAT ARE WE TO DO UNTIL JESUS COMES?”

    Matthew 9:35-38 Introduction: When is Jesus coming to earth again? How near are we to this magnificent event that will consummate human history as we know it and usher in the Kingdom of God in all its fullness? Although we don’t know the precise answers to these questions, the indications are that the day is drawing near. Whenever this may take place, we can be sure that this incident from the life of Jesus tells us exactly what we are to be busy doing until He does come! While we await Jesus’ Second Coming: I. WE MUST VISUALIZE a. Matthew tells us that Jesus “saw” the multitude. b. This means much more than making visual contact – it means to perceive and to understand the soul. c. We must “see” what is around us. II. WE MUST AGONIZE a. Jesus was emotionally affected by what He saw. b. The lostness of those around us must be viewed as simply intolerable. III. WE MUST EVANGELIZE a. There is no shortage of work to do. b. There is a shortage of workers to do the work! IV. WE MUST STRATEGIZE a. This means we will have to organize, mobilize and utilize. b. To fail to plan is to plan to fail! Supplemental Scriptures: Luke 19:41 Matthew 23:37-38 Romans 9:3 Matthew 28:18-20 Acts 1:8 1 Peter 3:15 II Corinthians 5:14

Voting publicly recognizes that we submit to the authority of the political system in our nation as established by God. (Romans 13: 1-7 ; John 19: 10 ) 2. Voting recognizes the equality of all people and their right to speak and be heard. (Deuteronomy 10: 17-19 ) 3. It is one way that we can obey God’s command to seek the good of those around us and our nation as a whole. (Jeremiah 29: 5-6 ) 4. It shows that we care deeply about who our leaders are as we are urged to offer prayer and intercession on their behalf. (1 Timothy 2: 1, 2 ) 5. It is a simple yet significant way we can do something about politics in our nation. ‘All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing’, Edmund Burke. (Psalms 34: 14 ) 6. It makes a difference the way a grain of salt makes a difference, and that is how we are to influence our society for good. (Matthew 5: 13 ) 7. It is a privilege not to be taken for granted. Those of us who reap the benefits of living in a constitutional republic should play a part in preserving the principles of that republic. 8. Not voting is a form of voting, as it will influence the outcome. We need to take responsibility for our actions, as well as our lack of actions. (Luke 10: 25-37 ) 9. Voting has biblical precedence for example Acts 14: 23 describes that the early Christians elected elders by voting. 10. Voting is part of our stewardship to use all the resources we have been given in ways that honor God; to waste a vote is to squander a gift. (Matthew 25: 26-28 )
