The Light Redeems Us (The Light Has Come)

December 4, 2016

Christmas is far more than gift giving, far more than the story of a baby born in a manger. It’s really a celebration of God’s intervention in human history. To a world lost in darkness, the Bible tells us that a great light was seen, a light personified by the Lord Jesus Christ. He bought our redemption, only possible because Jesus came to this earth to live and then die as a sacrifice for our sins.

Jesus was not content to limit his preaching to the synagogues of His day.  While on his way to meet with a man whose daughter had died, a woman in the crowd reached out to touch His garment, thinking that she would be healed of a twelve-year disease.  And in this brief encounter in Mark chapter five, we get a glimpse into the heart of Jesus - a heart of compassion.

Early in the ministry of Jesus, He became known as a healer. Large crowds followed him wherever He went, hoping to be cured of their many ailments. His heart was moved, as He saw them as sheep without a shepherd, harassed and helpless. How do we as believers view the great needs around us? Do we share the heart of our Savior? Let’s look into the motivation of Jesus when He saw human need, and examine our own hearts in the process.

There comes a time in the decline of a nation that God no longer delays judgment. America may be at that point. And believers are caught up with everyone else when economic and social calamity strikes. How should we as believers act and live when the going gets tough? Let’s take some guidance from an Old Testament prophet who saw times like ours coming.

According to an article in Newsweek magazine, Christians are being murdered for their faith from one end of the Muslim world to the other, and yet the mainstream media remains quiet. Like it was in ancient Rome, there’s a war on to destroy the faith of believers in Christ, and this war is coming to our own shores. Let’s ask ourselves, “What it would take for us to deny our faith?”

Many people watch the stock market like hawks. We all need money, but one day the money we crave will be no more. One day, all things that gives us false security will vanish, and that’s the day of final judgment. Then, what we are on the inside will be all that matters.

Sometimes we go directly from great blessing to times of great trial. That’s what happened to Jesus. He was led by God into the wilderness and found Himself tempted to sin by the devil.  Hungry and thirsty, He was very vulnerable, but fought off Satan by using the Word of God.  Let’s learn lessons from forty days in the life of Jesus.

It’s been said that if all the tears people ever cried could be gathered up, they’d fill an ocean. Life does have its joys, but God brings tears as well, because through tears we learn to depend on Him for every breath, every bite of food, and every dollar in our wallets. Let’s look at a story of famine and crisis, and how God met a woman’s needs.

When God wants to deepen our spiritual maturity, He sometimes takes away all the comforts we’ve become used to. Some of us move out of state, where a new job falls apart. Some of us are told that we have but months or weeks to live. It’s possible for God to lead His people into the wilderness for their greater good and His greater glory. That’s what happened to Abraham.

The days ahead may well be days of less money, fewer options, higher prices, and more uncertainty. For many, the comforts we’ve known may fade away into a tougher reality:  no job, no insurance, perhaps a foreclosed home. How do we handle deprivation when all we’ve known is abundance?

If the Lord brought a revival of repentance to a city, most of God’s people would rejoice. But not Jonah. He felt double-crossed… God withheld the judgment Jonah had prophesied against Nineveh. God was teaching a lesson to a man who still rebelled even after surviving a fish’s belly.
