Speaker: Will Galkin - 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.

Speaker: Will Galkin - Being ready to defend your faith is more than just a set of organize arguments. It is much deeper than that. Greg Koukl, in his book Tactics has done a wonderful job of helping the Christian come up with thoughtful questions to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ. He calls his strategy of using questions the Colombo Tactic.

Speaker: Will Galkin - The moral argument begins with the fact that all people recognize some moral code (that some things are right, and some things are wrong). We sense this most when injustice happens to us or we are stirred injustice of others. Every time we argue over right and wrong we appeal to a higher law that we assume everyone is aware of, holds to, and is not free to arbitrarily change. Right and wrong imply higher standard or law, a law requires a lawgiver. Because the Moral Law transcends humanity, this universal law requires a universal lawgiver. This, it is argued, is God.

Speaker: Will Galkin - While there are a number of arguments for the existence of God, we are going to look at the Kalam Cosmological Argument for God. Do not be put off by the name. In fact, you probably don’t even want to use that name when talking to other people. The foundation of this argument comes at us on the commonsense level. “It is based on an instinct of mind that we all share: the instinct that says everything needs an explanation. Nothing just is without a reason why it is. Everything that is has some adequate or sufficient reason why it is.” So what is the Kalam Cosmological Argument?

Speaker: Will Galkin - We are gathered together as a church because we believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son. We believe that Jesus Christ walked this earth 2000 years ago, was crucified and was raised from the dead. We believe that Jesus sits at the right hand of the throne of God and as Lord will judge the World. This is countercultural! Everything about Jesus Christ runs contrary to the naturalism, materialism, individualism and inclusivism of our present age. The faithful Christian should not be surprised by the pushback of the culture but rather expect it. So be prepared as 1 Peter 3:15 exhorts us, “always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.”

Speaker: Will Galkin - Do you know and believe that God loves each of us so much that He brings circumstances into our lives to show us our idols? He actually allows difficulties in our lives that reveal our wrong thinking about Him and ourselves. He uses situations to showcase our insecurities and our need for Him. But let’s be honest we don’t always like it! We get frustrated and so we run. We are irritated so we attempt to hide. We withdraw and sulk in our self-pity. We are filled with self-righteousness and sit in judgment of God. But God finds us and specifically reveals our shortcomings and meets us with His grace. His mercy is there for any that make a movement toward Him. God is showcasing His desire to save the lives of all of the main players in the book of Jonah. He wants to save the sailors, the Ninevites, and the prophet. So don’t you think that God wants to save you?

Speaker: Will Galkin - Happy New Year! What was last year like? Was it a year filled with joy or sorrow? Did you obtain all of your goals? Do you have any regret from choices made? It could be that last year is one that you would rather forget. It could be that you are looking forward to 2017 as a fresh start. Perhaps, you should begin this year with a humble heart asking God to revive you. Revival is one of the themes of Psalm 119. When one cries out to God for revival it is a realization that he or she has a need that only God can meet. In addition, this need is so great that he or she desires for God to work right now. So if your spiritual compass is spinning and you are struggling to find your way come to God and ask him to revive your heart.

Speaker: Will Galkin - Messengers from heaven brought news that caused humble people to quake in awe and fear, but ultimately these messengers brought good news of God’s love. What is this good news? It is that the Love of God was born in the flesh. Jesus would live a perfect life and die as the perfect sacrifice. So this Christmas, rather than just celebrating a cultural holiday we need to 1) Understand the love of God that is being revealed and 2) Receive the love of God that is being offered.

Speaker: Will Galkin - Paul’s expresses his love for the church of Philippi throughout the epistle that he sent them. His time with this church must have been sweet. Yet, since his last visit, strife had broken out among the believers. This is why Paul in Philippians 1 reminds the members of this church of his own hardships for the gospel. He shared that some who claimed the name of Christ were actually preaching Christ out of rivalry. But this did not slow down Paul from living worthy of the gospel. Throughout the book Paul offers himself as a joyful example of Christian maturity. The idea is that the Philippian believers should live just as Paul lived. Philippians 1:27 exhorts the believers to live worthy of the Gospel. Later, in Philippians 2:1-11 Paul encourages the believers to live worthy of the gospel by allowing the humility of Christ to guide all of their interactions with others. In Philippians 2:12-18, Paul reminds them of their dependent responsibility to work out their own salvation so that the lost would see Christ in them.
