Church Year

One+One+One=One

One+One+One=One

Do you understand?

The Athanasian Creed says, in part, “So the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God. And yet they are not three Gods, but one God.”1Plus1Plus1

Three Persons, each separate and distinct from the other two, each in and of Himself entirely God, and yet not three Gods, but one.  Do you understand how that can be?  Neither do I.  I don’t understand it, but I believe it.  I believe it because God has clearly revealed this truth about Himself.Read More »One+One+One=One

The Beginning or the End?

THE END TIMES

The end times seem to hold a great fascination for many, and our Lord Jesus has much to say about this Scriptural matter.

He tells us, “…When the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8) In so speaking our Lord teaches us that faith will grow scarce, very rare in the last days. In another place Jesus reminds us that “the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (2 Timothy 4:3).Read More »The Beginning or the End?

A Remembrance of Sin— a Remembrance of Him!

 What comes to mind with the word
Boston?

Before the horrific event that occurred two months ago, a person may well have associated that city’s name with the Tea Party or the marathon or even the music group popular in the 70s and 80s.

That was until April 15, 2013! Ever since then what people will associate with the city of Boston has drastically changed. That was the date those bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston marathon, killing a few and seriously injuring many others.

What comes to mind with the word
sacrifice?

The divinely inspired author of the epistle to the Hebrews tells us what the answer would have been among the Jews in the centuries before Christ. In their sacrifices there was a constant reminder of sins (10:3). Year in and year out—even day after day—countless animal sacrifices on the altar at theRead More »A Remembrance of Sin— a Remembrance of Him!

See You At The Finish Line!

An Easter Message from our CLC President

“But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after
preaching to others I myself should be disqualified”

(1 Corinthians 9:27)

Sports fans celebrate their team’s victory with enthusiasm and joy. One of the most moving sporting experiences for me was the 1980 US Hockey Team’s gold medal victory at the Olympic Games.

However, this victory and any other sporting win that could be mentioned cannot compare with the victory which Jesus won over death when He rose victorious from the grave on Easter Sunday morning.Read More »See You At The Finish Line!

A Lenten Devotion “Jesus … went forward” A Lenten Devotion “Jesus … went forward”

By the time candidates for public office have thrown their names into the ring, they have already thought things through long and hard. They know from previous election cycles just what to expect on the campaign trail, especially when running for the presidency. Knowing what is ahead, they have to decide if they want to go forward in spite of all. Read More »A Lenten Devotion “Jesus … went forward” A Lenten Devotion “Jesus … went forward”

In This Is Love…

It’s not only around Valentine’s Day that we hear about love. Throughout the year we hear and/or use the word ‘love’ in any number of contexts.

“Love is a many splendored thing.” — “I love your new haircut!” — “I’d love to see them get into the playoffs.” — “I love Moose Tracks ice cream.” — “I love you, Mommy.” — “I’d love to see that guy get what’s coming to him!” — “I love You, Lord Jesus.”

The word ‘love’ is often over-used, abused, and misunderstood in the English language. Is it any wonder that our God chose the more precise verbiage of the Greek language to express the love we receive from Him and the love with which we respond to His love?Read More »In This Is Love…

Behold, the Son of God

(Matthew 3:16-17)

The church season known as Epiphany is largely misunderstood and to a certain extent even ignored.

Unlike the seasons of Advent and Lent, Epiphany is not marked with special services in many churches. There are no special Epiphany sales at the department stores nor are there any special Epiphany family dinners which relatives drive great distances to attend.Read More »Behold, the Son of God

Great Joy

“And there was great joy in that city” Acts 8:8

“He went on his way rejoicing”  Acts 8:39

What is it that makes Christians joyful?
Next to the joy of forgiveness of sins and eternal salvation in Jesus Christ, surely one of our greatest joys is to hear about or witness for ourselves the great joy that comes to others when they hear the good news of Jesus Christ: His life, death, and resurrection for the salvation of mankind.Read More »Great Joy

Advent – A Time for Penitence

He also spoke this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’ But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down.’ ” (Luke 13:6-9)Read More »Advent – A Time for Penitence
