CONFIDENCE IN GOD

Exodus 2:1-10 There is a song that goes back to probably the 1950s or early 60s by a female group from the U.S. called The Ponytails. I wouldn’t be surprised if no one has ever heard it. It was typical of songs back then; the subject was the pain and challenges of young love. This song was called Born Too Late. It was about a heartbroken girl, probably a young teenager, who had the terrible misfortune of being born too late. For the guy she idolized was older than she was. Maybe she was a freshman and he was a senior, or already in college. Whatever, she was too young for him to ever be interested in her. And so the words go: BORN TOO LATE TO HAVE A CHANCE To win your love. O why was it my f

GOD OUR DELIVERER

Exodus 1 Bob Weniger One of the stories that has dominated the news the past several years is the plight of the refugees – millions of refugees. I’m sure all of us would say that our hearts go out to those who have lost their homes, or have had to flee their homes because of war and killing in their homeland. We’ve seen pictures and videos of them risking their lives in overcrowded, rickety boats crossing the Sea, or trekking for miles along the roads and through the fields. Seeing all this reminds us of how much we have to be grateful for and how much we probably take for granted. I’m sure none of us will go to bed tonight with the fear that while we sleep a bomb might flatten our house. A

FINDING HOPE IN TIMES OF DISCOURAGEMENT

Psalm 77 In February, 1947, a young man named Glenn Chambers was on his way to Quito, Ecuador. He was excited to begin his life as a missionary broadcaster on the powerful Christian mission radio station HCJB. While transferring through the Miami airport, he had some extra time so he decided to write a quick note to his mother. This, of course, was long before the time of text messages and e-mails, so he had to write the old fashioned way. However, he did not have any paper to write on. So he found a magazine someone had left and flipped through it until he found a page that was advertising a particular product, but it was rather peculiar because the page was almost entirely blank. In fact,

CHRISTMAS – GOD PROVIDED FOR OUR SALVATION

Genesis 22:1-14 (Genesis 3:15 & Matthew 1:21-23) Introduction Come December each year the music of Christmas carols will be in the air in the public space. Carols such as “Silent Night, Away in A Manger and Mary’s Boy Child, O Holy Night,” would resonate and listeners sing along or play the words in their minds. They cannot but notice that the carols are all about a baby boy, a child and his mother. Some wonder and others ask “What is the relationship between a baby boy and its mother with Christmas?” In church we specifically identify this child. He is Jesus the Christ and the mother is Mary. Ever wonder why we should commemorate his birthday and make a celebration of it even though his bir

GREAT COST, GREAT GAIN

Luke 14:25-33 In the U.S. state of Michigan there is a small town called Hamtramck. I had never heard of Hamtramck until a few years ago when I read a news article about Hamtramck. The citizens of Hamtramck decided that they wanted to make a more visible statement regarding their patriotism. And so the town bought twenty large flagpoles to be installed on the Main Street of their town so whenever there was a national holiday they could raise the American flag on these twenty flagpoles. But there was one problem they had not anticipated. It cost $50,000 to purchase and install these twenty flagpoles. As it turned out, the town had only four American flags. And after spending so much money on
