THE WORD BECAME FLESH: Part 1 – Implications Of The Incarnation

Dorothy Sayers, a close friend of the great C.S. Lewis, once said: "The incarnation is the most dramatic thing about Christianity; and indeed, the most dramatic thing that ever entered the mind of man." But in recent years, the busyness of the Christmas season has tended to smother out our appreciation of the amazing account of the God who "became flesh" and the practical implications it has for how we live our lives today.

    LAW & GRACE
    For 2000 years, the Church has repeatedly tended to slide off the highway of holiness into one of two theological ditches: Legalism (a misuse of the Law) and License (a misuse of Grace). The peril of the last generation was legalism. But this generation is facing the serious error of the other extreme: a "hyper-grace" message that teaches God's grace has done away with God's law. If we are to "earnestly contend for the faith once and for all delivered to the saints", we're going to have to go back to the Bible to discover the law's place in an age of grace!

    WOLF PROOF
    Jesus warned His disciples to beware of the false prophets who were really wolves in sheep's clothing and that they could be known by their fruit. But in his parting words to the elders in the church of Ephesus in Acts 20, the Apostle Paul offers counsel on how to "wolf-proof" God's church. The answer may surprise you.

    CONTENDING FOR THE FAITH
    Thomas Lunaker, physician to England's King Henry VIII, did not receive Christ until his 30's. Upon reading the Gospels for the first time, he was astounded at the chasm between what he read and what he saw in the spiritual condition of the Church. His conclusion: "Either these are not the Gospels, or we are not Christians." The battle for the Presidency is over. Perhaps now we can get on with an even more important conflict, recovering authentic Christianity in a postmodern world.

    "Be very careful about what you think. Your thoughts run your life." Proverbs 4:23   (NCV)
     
    We are living the "perilous times" of the last days (2 Timothy 3:1) and the level of spiritual warfare has never been more intense. The battlefield is the mindAnd it's a battle we can win!

    STANDING UP FOR GOD IN A FALLING DOWN WORLD
    Political, moral and spiritual crises often go hand in hand. A look back at Israel during the days of the prophet Jeremiah proves that this isn't the first time a once godly nation finds itself teeter-tottering over the abyss of judgement. Does God have a word for His people in times like these? He does. And it may surprise you.

    PARADIGM SHIFT
    "We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men." - George Orwell The world is in crisis. Our nation is divided, and we find ourselves in the midst of a presidential election season that has become a spectacle. But there is a silver lining!

    THE POLITICS OF JESUS
    In a few short weeks, our politically polarized nation will go to the polls and elect the next President of the United States. With so much at stake, is there a word from God about what His people are to do?

    WILL YOU BE THAT SOMEONE?
    In the 8th chapter of Acts, an Angel sent the Apostle Philip into the desert, where he found an Ethiopian eunuch reading Old Testament scripture, and asked him, "Do you understand what you are reading?" The Ethiopian replied with another question: "How can I unless SOMEONE guides me?" God is calling us to care about the multitudes of people all around us who are in a kind of spiritual desert, waiting for SOMEONE to help. Will you be that "someone"? You can be.

    THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION FOR OUR CHURCH
    The most important question for our church is not who we are; or what we do; or how we do what we do. The most important question for our church, (or any church), is WHY are we here?

    The Gospels of Matthew and Mark include the account of Jesus' interaction with a seemingly well qualified seeker of eternal life. The Master's response is curious, even counter-cultural to how we present the terms of discipleship today.

    Our salvation in Christ not only delivers us from damnation, it sets us free to live our lives and make our choices under the limitless canopy of God's amazing grace. The Christian has been given a spiritual "bill of rights" befitting of those who are children of God and joint-heirs with Jesus. But our "rights" can become "wrongs" if we carelessly offend others

    In the same way the slavers of Alex Haley's novel disconnected the Africans from their "Roots", so the devil seeks to keep God's people enslaved by separating us from the faith of our fathers.

    Pastor Ray concludes this teaching series with how the Church can reclaim the culture for Christ by reconnecting with the radical faith of our fathers and the kind of discipleship that turns the world upside down.
