“Devoted to the Lord”
Series: Sermon
The firstfruits were devoted to the Lord in the Bible; God was to get the first and best from us.  What are the firstfruits in our life and have we devoted that to God with every part of our life?

    “Only 359 Days Left to Go”
    Series: New Year
    Taking the city of Jericho was the first thing that the nation of Israel had to face when they entered the Promised Land - something that looked like an overwhelming task to them.  What is our "Jericho" that we have to face for 2018?  God is still the same God who conquered Jericho and will conquer our "Jericho" as well.

Vulnerability, Intimacy and Connection

This last Christmas was one of the neatest Christmas’s I’ve enjoyed in a long time!  It is the first Christmas that our entire family was together since about 4 years ago and of course it included our son-in-law who is brand new to our family just a little over a year ago when he and our daughter married.  Having our family all together, “under one roof” as Sue puts it, was a huge highlight for me.  Also, having the privilege of having our two grandsons here with us for almost TWO FULL WEEKS was the icing on the top of the cake.  We were so worn out after they all left and it was just Sue and me again, but it was worth it and I’m grateful to God for the privilege of celebrating His birth with all of them.  So this blog this afternoon has to do not only with the effects of that visit on me, but specifically with a gift our daughter-in-law gave to me – a hand made quote that I’ve hung on my office wall by Sammy Rhodes.

The Righteous

“Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous” (Psalm 1:5).

 
The first psalm speaks of the individual who 
“does not walk in the counsel of the wicked” and whose “delight is in the law of the Lord.”  This individual is contrasted with the “wicked” and with “sinners.”  The 5th verse uses the Hebrew term “tsaddiq” which is of course translated “righteous.”  But in a day when we use the term “Christian” so loosely and we call ourselves “Christians” simply because we go to church or we live in the United States or numerous other reasons, I would like to speak to the meaning of this word “righteous” because it is used to describe someone that we would consider a “Christian” even though that term would have never been used before Christ when the Psalms were written.

I Am With You Always

You will probably recognize the reference in the title of this week’s blog to the words of Christ when He was saying His last words to His followers after the Resurrection.  Jesus promised that He would never leave them, but would be with them (us) through the end of time.  Of course when time ends we know that we will be with Him in heaven eternally.  
 
I want to share some very exciting and incredible news with you this morning that some of you have heard about but it has in fact, just become official this past Sunday.  This has to do with a dream that God began to birth in me and in us here at Angus Church over 5 years ago.  It began when God began to ask me, “Is there anything that you are doing that if I just walked away it would completely fall apart?”  After a lot of prayer and soul-searching I had to admit that the answer was, “probably not much!”  It humbled me and scared me that even though we’ve been following God’s direction and doing the things that we felt He was leading us to do, we had pretty much figured out how to fund, how to staff and how to run most of the programs that we were doing.  So we began to pray and God began leading us on a huge faith-challenging journey.
