Religion can prevent people from understanding the truth about themselves. Religion can breed the pride that says, Im okay. In Romans chapter two, Paul addresses the religious elite of his day, and shows how ceremony and ritual had insulated them from Gods analysis of their hearts. Self-deception is especially deep when expressed in religious terms. In this message we discover why we need rescuing so badly.
If youre tossed overboard into a stormy sea, the most important thing on your mind is being rescued. Its life or death. Humanity is overboard in the stormy sea of sin, and even though most people dont realize it, theyre headed for an eternal death. Sinners need outside help, and so God has put in place a rescue plan from heaven: a plan outlined in the book of Romans.
All of us desire to be great. Some of us even desire to do great things for God, but is unholy ambition lurking beneath the surface? Are our motives pure? In this message, Pastor Lutzer shows us the difference between selfishness and greatness.
A procession of Magi from the east came to Jerusalem in search of a new King of the Jews. King Herod played along with them so he could destroy this threat to his rule. A star appeared in the sky, leading the Magi to the humble dwelling of Mary and Joseph.
An old man had served in the Temple in Jerusalem all his life. The climax of his life came one day when Mary and Joseph brought the child Jesus to him. Led by the Holy Spirit, Simeon knew he was witnessing the hope of his nation as well as the entire world.
The night sky over Bethlehem was suddenly ablaze with light. A host of angels appeared, announcing the birth of Jesus. Their audience was a group of terrified shepherds. No wonder the angels first words were Fear not!
In a world of increasing chaos, people yearn for something to hold onto. The Christmas season reminds us that God Himself invaded human time and space when Jesus was born in Bethlehem. His entrance was announced through a word of hope given by an angel to a young Jewish maiden over two thousand years ago.
