Nunc Dimittis (Worship Service, December 24th, 2017)

Title: Nunc Dimittis

Passage: Luke 2:22-32

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: December 24th, 2017

The inspired canticle of Simeon is in Luke’s Gospel to be a faithful testimony to the baby in Simeon’s arms. And, on this Christmas Eve, this is an especially important matter for us to consider. Who was this baby arriving with Mary and Joseph to Herod’s Temple so long ago? God wants us to listen to Simeon and understand who Jesus is.

Magnificat (Worship Service, December 17th, 2017)

Title: Magnificat

Passage: Luke 1:46-55

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: December 17th, 2017

In Mary’s song, the first word in the original is magnifies. This word sets the tone for the whole Psalm. As a whole, Mary’s song teaches us the joy of Christ’s coming. Mary calls all men to join with her joy that Christ has come. So whether you are a mature saint who has believed in Christ for a long time, or a person who has never yet believed in Christ alone for salvation, what God wants from you is to rejoice in Christ this Christmas.

A Holy Sabbath to the LORD (Worship Service, December 10th, 2017)

Title: A Holy Sabbath to the LORD

Passage: Exodus 16:21-36

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: December 10th, 2017

The rest of Exodus 16 deals with the institution of a pre-Sinai Sabbath and the people’s response to this. I believe that the same theme of first half of the chapter can be easily brought over and extended into the focus on the manna and Sabbath. That is, we still learn here that true saints believe that God alone can satisfy their greatest desires

Bread From Heaven (Worship Service, December 3rd, 2017)

Title: Bread From Heaven

Passage: Exodus 16:1-21

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: December 3rd, 2017

The provision of food is the demonstration of the LORD’s covenantal presence and glory. It is to be a manifestation of God’s care for his people. It is the LORD who gives this food to his people, and the gift of food from God is intended to reiterate his love for them. The bread comes from God. It comes from heaven. The message of this story, the Lord’s message in the miracle of the manna is, “I am with you. You can trust me. Rely on me. Lean into me. I will sustain you. You can know that I will never let you down. I will keep my promises to you. You can be assured that I am your God and you are my people.” That is, true saints believe that God alone can satisfy their greatest desires.
