Question: Who was looking for Jesus when He was born?

I’ve said that the amazing thing about the birth of the Savior of the world is that it was so humble and quiet so that it was almost unknown. Do you know that if God hadn’t announced to the shepherds about Jesus’ birth that no one would have seen the Messiah was born that night? If you were going to see God’s special Son at His birth or soon after, it would take something special. You would have had to be around at that special point in history to be there. Many would see Jesus during His earthly ministry, but what if you were old when Jesus was born?

Question: What is the Spirit-filled life like?

Ephesians 5:18 says: “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit.” This statement is put into the middle of a passage that has been about our walk (daily life with) God. Much of the rest of the book of Ephesians is dedicated to what a life that is walking with God and being filled with the Spirit is like.

Question: What is the gospel? And what is so important about it?

The word “gospel” literally means “good news”, and it certainly is that. Galatians 1:3-4 summarize the gospel this way: “Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:” The gospel is, first of all, a conduit of God’s grace and peace. It is not rites and rituals that can bring God’s grace into your life, but rather the belief in the gospel. Further, we can see that this belief has to do with Jesus.
