In Isaiah's time, Israel had a long, persistent history rebellion, immorality, cruelty to the poor, and idolatry. By the time we get to Isaiah 40, Israel was about to be destroyed as a nation. Life was insecure, with major superpowers of the day fighting for control of the region. This chapter is addressed to those who are in exile and it is a message of comfort and consolation. As captive people in a foreign land, it was easy to get lost in distress and discouragement. When the people focused on the horizontal plain, doubt and fear seemed overwhelming, so the prophet looks at the people and says, "Behold your God," he is coming to comfort his people. In whatever distress or difficult situations we might be facing this Advent season, the call of the prophet rings true today just as it did long ago. We too must behold our God and find comfort in his presence!

The word “advent” simply means “the appearance of a notable person.” In the Christian calendar, it refers to the arrival of Christ. His First Advent is a reference to His incarnation and Christmas. His Second Advent is a reference to when He comes again. So, we are people who reside between Advents. We look both ways. As we look back we celebrate the birth of Jesus and as we look forward we long for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. We, like the disciples of Mark 13, find ourselves asking the same questions. How long, Jesus, until you come back? How will we know when you will come for us? Yet, while no one knows the exact day or hour of His return. We find ourselves realizing that our only hope is His return. Through the words of Christ, we will see that His second coming will be obvious, comforting and motivating.

God the Father has made promises to God the Son that must be fulfilled before the end of the age. The Apostle Paul took the promises of Isaiah 52-53 as the basis for his gospel ambition and specific geographical strategies for mission and evangelism. He believed that God would fulfill those promises through his ministry as he left the familiar and established places of ministry for the unreached peoples in lands beyond. These same promises are still being fulfilled in our day. God intends to motivate us and provide direction for our ministry, not only in the Salt Lake valley, but also into regions beyond.

In Matthew 16:13-20 we see the first mention of the word “church,” and it comes from the mouth of Jesus, the Head of the church. Jesus uses this word to refer to an assembly of followers that he would build to proclaim his name and spread his blessing to the people of the earth. The heartbeat of Christ is described in this passage – he expresses his desire to build his church. What wonderful news when he says that he wants to use faith-filled disciples in the project. May he embolden each of us to herald the gospel and may he encourage each of us invest in his work.

Genesis 12 marks a turning point in the course of history. With the God’s call of Abram out of the city of Ur, things would be changed forever and a door of hope would be opened for the people of the world. Abram’s story provides a helpful paradigm for anyone who wants to understand God’s heart for missions. In our text this morning we will see that God’s mission involves understanding his calling, believing his promises, and spreading his fame to the ends of the earth. According to Gal. 3:7-9, Christians are children of Abraham by faith. What that means is, in Christ, we inherit Abraham’s blessing as well as his mission. That is, God wants us to go and be a blessing by spreading the fame of Jesus to the neighborhoods and nations of the world. The story of missions is the story of the spread of God’s blessing. May he use each of us in the task.

John - That You May Believe

On the last day of the Feast of Tabernacles, Jesus stood up and said, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.” A tradition grew up in the few centuries before Jesus that on the seven days of this feast, a golden container filled with water from the pool of Siloam was carried in procession by the high priest back to the temple. As the procession came to the Water Gate on the south side of the inner temple court, three trumpet blasts were made to mark the joy of the occasion and the people recited Isa. 12:3, “With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.” Jesus stands before us today, declaring His true identity. Some of us will see and believe. Some of us will rejoice in our salvation. Some of us will be confused. But through declaring who Jesus is, God will be glorified in our worship today.

We continue our study through the book of John. The account of the life of Jesus begins to change its tone. The temple authorities in Jerusalem desired the assassination of Jesus. Jesus was unlike any other rabbi or political leader anyone had ever seen, because he continuously exposes their vain pride. His actions and words revealed the sinful heart of those around him and the world hated him for it. The passage is riddled with contrasts, none more so than the contrast that Jesus presents between his time, and the time of this brothers. What does the Jesus mean when he says “their time is always here”? What about the unbelief of the brothers and the Jews? And are these two aspects tied? Join us as we see the remarkable teaching of the Gospel of John that point to how we often deceive ourselves and lose sight of eternity.

Speaker: Jon Kopp - Loneliness is not only a common human struggle, but it is also a confusing struggle. May we allow the pain we feel from the emptiness of separation to push us to fullness and solitude in God. He has offered His Son as our model and strength to face our loneliness with endurance and grace.
