Selected Scriptures

Courage is just another word for inner strength. Courage is the determination to hang in there, to persevere, endure hardship, fear, and all manner of difficulty. The fact is, it's impossible to live victoriously for Jesus Christ without courage. We cannot honour God in a godless culture without courage. The real test of courage isn't so much for those fighting on the battlefield…or for witnessing in the midst of opposition…or even for facing down a burglar in our homes.

Sometimes getting off the ground is difficult for us because we have been so long pinned to the ground by particular sins and habits and addictions and all kinds of things which do hold us to the ground.

Avery leaned forward, peering out the van window. Rain streamed down the glass, blurring the view. The windshield wipers were swishing back and forth at top speed. "Mom, when will it stop raining? The sun hasn't been out in two weeks!" complained Avery.

"I know, honey," said Mom, steering the car carefully through the wet street. "The rain is sure coming down fast. I can hardly see through these windows." She turned in at the grocery store entrance and parked near the door.

Just as Avery got out of the car, a blind man shuffled by. He gripped the harness of a golden retriever who led him through the doorway. As Avery watched the blind man, she bit her lower lip. It made her think about the paralyzed girl in her class who got around in a wheelchair.

"Mom, I've got some questions," said Avery when they returned to the car. "Why does God let some people be blind or handicapped in some other way? And why does He allow all this rain? I'm really sick of it."

Avery's mom nodded. "I've asked those same questions myself," she said. "I can only tell you that such things are due to the fact that there's sin in the world. But God can take even the worst circumstance and turn it around to bring blessing."

Avery sighed. "I don't see how," she said. "I wish I could understand God better."

Mom nodded. "I do, too," she agreed, "but . . ." She pointed to the rain still streaming down the windshield. "See how blurry everything looks through the rain?" she asked, and Avery nodded. "Well, our understanding of God is like looking through this blurry windshield," said Mom as she started the car. "When we get to heaven we'll see things clearly and understand God's greatness--and it's possible we may even know answers to the questions we asked today. For now, we just need to trust that God loves us and has a purpose for all things."

How About You?
Have you wondered why God allows things such as sickness and poverty? If you know Jesus, someday you'll no longer wonder about those things. The Apostle Paul says things are now seen dimly, as in a mirror--and apparently not a very clear mirror. He says things can be known only in part now. But he assures you that some day you'll see Jesus face to face and know things more fully. Until then, trust God's perfect plan and purpose for all things.

Today's Key Verse:
Now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then (in heaven) face to face.
(1 Corinthians 13:12)

Today's Key Thought:
Trust God in all situations

Isaiah 9:6

Just days before Christmas, a mysterious illness spreads through the town sapping everyone of their strength and their hopes of winning the big Christmas decorating contest. With only hours before the judges arrive, can The Club find a way to save Christmas or has everyone been making Christmas something it's not?

Verse: Romans 10:13

Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Imagine you were there when the star was first sighted. You watch as the wise men, the magi, notice something new. “Look at this bright new star,” they exclaim, “it must mean something important. A king? Yes, a king has been born.”

A king? You wonder about a king who has his very own star. You listen again, for the magi are making plans. “We will go to worship this new king. Gifts—we must bring gifts.” You are told to gather gold, incense, and myrrh to present to the newborn king.

You travel many miles, many days. You feel exhausted, but each night the star appears and your strength returns. Finally, you arrive in Jerusalem, dusty and tired. No one in Jerusalem has heard of the newborn king. How strange. How could they not know that the star for this king has appeared in the sky? You watch as King Herod shouts for his priests and teachers. They scurry around and finally announce that the star must be for someone born in the town of Bethlehem. Herod sends you on your way with the royal command “Go! Make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, bring me a report. Then I can go and worship him too.”

Finally, finally, you arrive. There he is—the newborn king! You kneel before him and give to him the gifts you have brought with you. You are sure that he is looking right at you…..

You didn’t travel with the wise men. You live 2000 years after Jesus was born. You know Jesus is the Light of the world. What do you have to offer a newborn king? I Peter 2:9 says to “declare the praises of him (God) who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” Be a like the magi; worship Jesus today.

Discussion Guide:

To whom do you give presents at Christmas? The people you love, right? And, maybe more than that, the people who love you back. It's not easy being nice to people who don't like you, or who have hurt you. It would be even harder to give them a present. But that is exactly what God does for us. He gives us the gift of salvation through his Son Jesus Christ even though we are not his friends, even though we sin against him.

How do we respond to such a gift? Perhaps the words of this Christmas carol say it best:

What can I give him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb.
If I were a wise man, I would do my part.
Yet what can I give him: give him my heart.
("In the Bleak Midwinter" - Christina Rosetti.)
