“Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” (Luke 1:78-79)

 

As Zacharias begins to conclude his prophecy of Christ and then of his son, John the Baptist’s role in the gospel, he introduces Jesus as the “dayspring from on high” come down to visit us. Christ’s first advent was certainly the dawning of a new ray of light for the Jewish community of his day, but in a much more broad sense, Jesus and the light of the good news of the gospel is a light in a dark place for the children of God.

Very often this dynamic is flipped to satisfy the individual's personal desires. Sometimes various groups will focus on experience and feelings over objective truth. We should certainly desire a religion that we can feel. Yet, a religion that is not built on theology proper, the work of Christ, and Biblical principles will soon leave us void of any sustaining enjoyment.

Churches should strive to be both but can often miss the mark in one area without knowing it. Welcoming is simply understood as giving a welcome. Think of the traditional church usher as being a good word picture for how welcoming typically looks. A smiling face and a hand to shake. Yet, inclusion goes past that principle.

Our Christianity should be an "on purpose" habit. PDF Print E-mail

Originally written December 5, 2018

Paul had a manner (Acts 17:2). Simply stated, Paul had an evangelistic habit that he typically performed when he went into a new town. As Paul traveled, his general plan was to first visit the synagogues and preach to the Jews from the Old Testament. He then would use this resource to branch out to the Gentiles. Even his messages seemed to form a basic pattern. This can be evidenced in his many epistles as he typically transitioned from doctrine to devotion.
