Learning and Living the God-centered life

One Biblical Doctrine at a time…

The Christmas story and the glory of God

Can you believe we are coming to the end of 2010? I posted on the website this week the first entry I made for 2010, click on this LINK. It starts with a prayerful challenge and ends with a hopeful summary of what the 2010 year might look like as we mature in Christ.
  • What kind of year has it been for you spiritually?
  • Are you engaged in a rich and deep worship of God not just on Sunday but during the week?
  • Do you know the Lord Jesus in such a way, that you are passionately pursuing Him through the word?
  • Is your life marked by the power of the Spirit in dealing with family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and those in the church community?
  • In other words, when people leave your presence are they consistently seeing a demonstration of the greatness of the Lord Jesus?

We have been studying the "glory of God' through the Bible based on the following outline;
1. God purpose
2. Man's problem
3. God's provision
4. Man's priority

In the last couple of weeks I have emphasized the first two points in this outline but tomorrow I plan to focus on God's provision. What better way to do this than through the Christmas story given to us in Luke 2:1:20. Therefore, I want to encourage you to pray (preparation of the heart), read (renewing the mind), and devote on (set your minds on things above), these verses as they relate to the glory of God.

For you information this will be our last SS class until January 9, 2011.

Hope to see you all tomorrow, blessings in Christ and Merry Christmas,
