Good News, Great Joy, All People

There is a verse found in Luke 2:10 that is the message from the angel to the shepherds.  The angel says, “I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.”  This may be one of the most hope-filled verses in the entire Christmas story.  The news is good; it will bring great joy and, here’s the best part, everyone is included.  No one is excluded.  No one can be left out.  There isn’t anyone, anywhere for ANY reason that can’t receive the good news.  EVERYONE – EVERYWHERE! So this is something that we need to take seriously.

Advent

It is an interesting word, advent.  If you look it up in the dictionary you’ll find the following definitions:  “a coming into place, view, being or use; arrival: such as the advent of spring.”  “The period beginning four Sundays before Christmas.”  “The coming of Christ into the world; incarnation and second coming.”  Of course for our purposes here at Angus Church each week now we are in the middle of the Advent Season, obviously looking forward to the arrival of Christ as a baby born in Bethlehem, incarnation, and of the promise of His second coming.  Regardless of how you look at this word, there is something to be said for every way that we use it, it has to do with a preparation of sorts.  We prepare for the advent of Spring; we prepare for the advent of our Lord.  That was the first lesson in our Advent series this past Sunday, Preparation, as we are looking at the Call of Christmas.  You can listen to the sermon on the website here if you would like.  But let’s talk for a few minutes here about what our preparation involves.

I Am Thankful

This morning at a little after 2:30 in the morning, heaven became a little richer.  Gilbert Montoya breathed his last here in this world and breathed his first breath in heaven.  We have lost a friend, a man of God and a husband, father and grandfather who was loved very much by his family and friends.  I will miss Gilbert.  Our prayers go out to Pat and her daughters and their families.  The family is looking at Saturday December 3 for the Memorial service and we’ll keep you updated as we get more information.
 
In light of that, in light of the events over the last year here in our nation and of course in light of the time of the year that we are in, I’ve been thinking about what it means to give thanks to God.  The apostle Paul wrote to the church at Thessalonica some words that are at best hard to not just understand but hard to practice and at best they are a goal to aim at.  We find those words in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.  He writes, “Be joyful always, pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  Do you see what I mean? Are we willing to be honest with ourselves and honest with God when we say, “it is hard to always be joyful?  It is a giant task to pray continually and, giving thanks in ALL circumstances . . . can I really do that?”  I want to speak specifically to that this morning as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving Day here in the United States.
