The church in the second chapter of Acts should be the template for the church today. That is, the church should be centered upon Jesus, and it should be dedicated to boldly proclaiming the gospel that Christ offers salvation from sin.

As a church, we shouldn't put certain people on a pedestal, as though they were more important. All the parts of the body are equal before the Lord. And we should remember that we are interdependent. No one should tell another, "I have no need of you."

We should recognize the variety that is in the church—the various abilities, gifts, etc. But we should also emphasize unity—the fact that we are all parts of a whole, with each person having an important job. And it is Christ Who is in control.

All of Psalm 65 is God-centered. David didn't know what the year would bring, but he knew that God was in control. He could trust the unknown future to a known God. God will take care of your future, so give him your best.

Psalm 65 gives us a good example for prayers as we face the future. It speaks of the troubles all around, but there is no complaining. Instead, the psalm is full of praise to God for His spiritual as well as His natural blessings to mankind.

The prophecy that the messiah would be called Immanuel didn't mean that would be His name. It meant that He would literally be "God with us." He is also King—the King of the Jews, the King of Kings, and the King of all men.

God's greatest gift to us has many names—wonderful, counselor, the Prince of Peace. He is also the Christ, the Messiah, "the anointed one." But the name we know best is Jesus, and that name comes from the Hebrew for "God is Salvation."
January 17, 2008
As a church, we should esteem others as better than ourselves, because we are part of the family of God. And since Christ forgives and accepts us, we should forgive and accept each other.
January 16, 2008
The ancient Greeks despised humility, so Paul was going against the prevailing cultural norm when he called Christians to be humble. Humility is the grease that enables the church to operate smoothly.
January 15, 2008
Our commitment to God should be a promise to love and serve Him. And our attitude toward God should be to fear Him—not an abject terror but a reverential awe based on loving and humble submission to Him.
January 14, 2008
Our approach to God in worship should not be mere ceremony or ritual, nor should it be superficial. Rather, we should prepare our hearts and draw near to hear what God has to say to us.
