What does Christmas show us about God's Priorities?
The Challenge of Christmas
Jesus is the promised Saviour who makes God's people flourish in his glorious kingdom.
The exalted Lord Jesus continues to work in the world through the continuing increase of his mighty word
Wisdom and Folly
God sends a glorious Saviour
God graciously leads his people in the past, present and future, therefore we need not be afraid.
Idolatry is an affront to our Creator God who is jealous for his own glory. We too should feel the disgrace of all idolatry and call people to turn from…
The crucified, risen, exalted Christ turns the world upside down as his Word is proclaimed to the nations.
Our God is our great Shepherd and Redeemer whom we can trust.
The church is the bride for whom Christ gave himself up to death, to make her holy.
The exalted Lord Jesus is working amongst the nations to free those willingly enslaved in Satan's grasp, that we might belong to him and so become like him.
God calls his people to engage in mission with passion and prudence, aware of our own powerlessness to bear fruit.
Those God calls to be members of his family through faith in Christ are to live distinctive lives for him.
We cannot, nor do we need to, add anything to faith in the Lord Jesus for our salvation.
We need to put out trust in the Saviour who does not need to be saved
Both for unbelievers to whom we witness and for believers who seek to follow Christ, there are certain things we must know if we are to see gospel fruit.
Living wisely by God's Word in God's World
We are to rejoice at the life we have been given while we are able, before judgment comes.
The things we don't know, should inform how we hold the things we know in this life.
