    Jesus’ First Sermon

          Jesus did not begin His public ministry until He was approximately thirty years old. When the time came for Him to begin preaching and teaching, He chose a topic for His first sermon that was the theme of His earthly ministry. Jesus preached the gospel. “Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” (Mark 1:14-15) Jesus’ message was simple.  He said that it was time to repent and believe the gospel.  Jesus would go on to teach many more things and expound on the meaning and impact of the gospel message, but it all began with this simple declaration. We need to follow our Savior’s example. Too often we overcomplicate our evangelism. We think we have to have attractive promotions, novel outreach programs and witty publications to reach the lost.  In reality, the foundation of our soul winning must remain the simple proclamation that Jesus began His ministry with. As we seek to be faithful sowers of the gospel seed, we must simply reiterate the age-old message that it is time for the lost to repent and believe the gospel for salvation.

    Sowing and Growing
    The laws of sowing and reaping were established by God at creation. Everything multiplies after its kind and all living creatures instinctively seek to grow and multiply.
    The laws of sowing and reaping that apply to nature also apply spiritually. A healthy plant or animal will be growing and multiplying, and so too will a healthy church. In fact, actively seeking to increase the number of Jesus’ disciples is part of the church’s mandate. However, we must recognize that it is the Lord who builds His church and adds to it “such as should be saved.” How much of church growth is our responsibility and how much is God’s?
    Our responsibilities can be summed up in two words: going and sowing. As followers of Jesus, we have been commanded, “Go ye therefore and teach all ations.” (Matthew 28:19) We have to go out into the world for the definite purpose of making disciples of Jesus. We do that by sowing the seed of the gospel as we are going. “God ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
    God’s responsibility is to do the growing. Just like a farmer may till the soil and plant the seed but he is dependent on God using the forces of nature for the growth of the crops and fruitfulness of the harvest, we are dependent on God to make our ministry fruitful. As Paul wrote, “So then neither is
    he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.” (1 Corinthians 3:7) In 2023, we need to be busy sowing good seed and trusting the Lord to give the increase.

    The Christ of Christmas The Glory of Christ

    “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him,
    and given him a name which is above every
    name: That at the name of Jesus every knee
    should bow, of things in heaven, and things
    in earth, and things under the earth; And that
    every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is
    Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
    (Philippians 2:9-11)

    Many of the Christmas carols we sing
    mention the angels’ glorious announcement
    of Christ’s birth.  It is true that no birth in
    history has ever been announced with as
    much heavenly majesty as Christ’s.

    But the exaltation of Christ at His birth
    is just a shadow of the glory that will one
    day be given him.  When he was born, there
    were only a few people who were told.  Mary
    and Joseph knew.  The shepherds were told
    by the angels.  The wise men saw the birth
    announcement written in the sky and came
    from afar. 

    Jesus had a humble birth, He lived a
    humble life, and He died a humiliating
    death. But there is coming a day when He
    will be exalted above everything. Everyone
    who has ever lived will see the glory of
    Christ and bow their knee to Him. They
    will also confess that He is Lord, even if
    they refused to acknowledge that truth
    during their lifetime.

    Either we can bow before Christ now,
    as the shepherds and the wise men did or
    we can bow later. But we will bow, and it
    is far better that we humble ourselves
    before Christ now, receive Him as our Savior,
    and live for His glory.

    The Christ of Christmas: the Humility of Christ
    Philippians 2:8 “And being found in fashion
    as a man, he humbled himself, and became
    obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
    Christmas is an occasion for us to celebrate
    how Jesus Christ, Who is God, was born as a
    man so that He could die for our sins. Jesus had
    to humble Himself to become a man. He “made
    himself of no reputation and took upon him the
    form of a servant.”
    But Jesus could have become any kind of
    man. He could have become a great king, a
    wealthy businessman, or a powerful military
    leader. He chose to become the humblest kind
    of a man instead. He chose to become a servant
    and was born into a carpenter’s home.
    Jesus’ humility does not stop there. He
    humbled Himself even further by consenting to
    die on the cross for the sins of the world.
    Execution on a cross was one of the most
    humiliating forms of death that depraved man
    has ever invented. He hung on a cross for all to
    see, shake their heads, and mock him.
    Why did Jesus submit to so much humiliation?
    He did it for you and me. By humbling Himself and
    dying on the cross, Jesus paid the penalty for our
    sin so that we might be saved. All we must do to
    receive the salvation that Jesus offers is humble
    ourselves and accept the free gift of forgiveness by

    The Deity of Christ

    “Let this mind be in you, which was
    also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form
    of God, thought it not robbery to be equal
    with God.” (Philippians 2:5-6)

    One of my favorite Christmas passages in
    scripture is not usually associated with the
    holiday. Philippians 2 describes how Jesus,
    though He is God, became a man. God the
    Son was born of the virgin Mary so He could
    live and die for our sins, be buried, and then
    rise again. That is what we celebrate at
    Christmas time.

    The mystery of the incarnation will always
    perplex us to some degree. Because it is difficult
    to understand, it leads some people to draw
    incorrect conclusions about Jesus. For instance,
    some people conclude that Jesus was not God
    from the beginning but became God through
    living a perfect life. The Bible does not teach this.
    The Bible teaches that Jesus is God, He was God
    in eternity past, and He will always be God.

    Understanding the truth about the Deity of
    Christ is important if you are to fully appreciate
    what He did for us. He willingly set aside the
    glory and the honor that was rightfully His as
    God the Son to be born as a man and die for us.
    No one has ever given up as much as Jesus did
    when He came to earth. The cute little Baby in the
    manger was no less than the eternal Creator God
    of the universe.

    Mind Your Own Business
     A busybody is a person who meddles in the affairs of others. The word “busybody” is used three times in the Bible, but the concept of being a meddlesome person and a talebearer is mentioned many more times. 2 Thessalonians 3:11 summarizes the Biblical teaching about being a busybody when it calls it “disorderly.” It is rude to intrude on other people’s affairs,
    and it requires you to ignore or neglect your business. Symptoms of a busybody include too much curiosity, too little work, and too much talking. Instead of doing these things, you should “study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands” (1 Thessalonians 4:11)
    There is a balance that we must learn as well. Genuine concern and compassion for others must not be confused with being a busybody. But if we are to help others, we must first mind our own business, or else we are not qualified to assist them. We must “first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” (Matthew 7:5)
    The simple truth is that you are responsible for your own actions. Since you will answer to God for yourself and no one else, you need to be sure that you mind your own business and don’t be “a busybody in other men’s matters.” (1 Peter 4:15)
