Submissive Son

The Bible encourages us to be like Jesus. God’s ultimate goal for us is to conform us into the image of Jesus Christ. We are to love as He loves, obey as He obeys, and to live as He lives. A common approach to Christianity is for us to ask ourselves, “What would Jesus do?” In other words, when given a life situation, it is wise for us to ponder how might Jesus respond or what might He say in the same situation. We are to imagine knowing the character of Jesus what He would do. In pondering this, it helps us have the wisdom to respond the same way. As we read about Jesus at the age of twelve, let’s examine His example, and look for ways we may do as Jesus does. Therefore, the main idea of the message today is to follow the example of Jesus and faithfully be obedient to God’s call on our life.

Contentment in Christ

Are you content with Jesus? Do you feel as though your life is complete because your eyes have seen Jesus? We have not seen Jesus in the flesh, but we know in our heart of God’s salvation. We can chase after things of this world. Or we can be content to have what Christ gives us. Content with holiness. Jesus is the way. Are we content with the way? Jesus is the truth. Are we content with knowing the truth? Are we content with the life Jesus gives, or are we looking for more in this world. A song that has meant much to me is, “I’d rather have Jesus.” I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold I'd rather be his than have riches untold I'd rather have Jesus than houses or land Yes I'd rather be led by his nail pierced hands Than to be the king of a vast domain and be held in sins dread sway I'd rather have Jesus than anything this world affords today The Apostle Paul says it well. He says: But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. (Philippians 3:7)

God’s Tender Mercy

How do we see serving? How do we imagine heaven? Do we imagine heaven as the angels serving us as we put our feet up? On earth, we all imagine our greatest joy is found in being served by others. How delightful does spending eternity serving sound to our ears?

Mary’s Song

There are hundreds, if not thousands of sermons written on this inspiring passage. These verses are a treasure-trove of theology. As we look at this passage, let’s take a slightly unconventional approach. Let’s examine the joy and excitement these two women express. Let’s imagine we are the proverbial fly on the wall and we observe these women as they lovingly greet one another. We get the sense that their worship of God bubbles out and that they are very, very happy.

Christ’s Forerunner

The first piece of evidence that Jesus is God in the flesh and Savior of the world is the account of an older couple who live in the hills of Judah. In Luke 1:5-25, we see the evidence of how God fulfills Old Testament prophecy. God prophecies that before the Messiah, there will be a forerunner. Luke begins by telling us of the birth of Christ’s forerunner.

The Assembly of Worship

The main idea of the message is that we will endeavor to fulfill our purpose as worshipping members of the church. We need to strive as a church, to be a unified worshipping body, and we need to strive as individuals to be a member of the body who worships. We see the scriptural basis behind this idea, and we will review practical suggestions on how to fulfill God’s purpose. We desire to please God in our obedience to His ways.

Eternal Worship

We are to place our hope in the eternal worship of His glory. This age will come to an end. All who put their faith in Christ will live forever with joy and satisfaction basking in the presence of God. We look forward to our eternal worship of enjoying God. We will say, “I have now understood why I am created. My purpose is to enjoy my God. God is the source of all my pleasure and gladness. My soul is full. My heart leaps with passion. I need not turn anywhere, but to look into the face of My Savior who loves me. I am content, consoled, and filled with peace as I am held close to His bosom.”

God’s Intimate Love

The main idea of the message is that we are to be enthralled with the intimate love of God. To be enthralled is to be held captive, spellbound, fascinated, and absorbed. The truth of God’s love is to permeate our mind, invoke deep feelings, pull on our heartstrings, and affect us in such a way, that God’s intimate love changes the way we live.

Humble Worship

God’s revelation of Himself is a very loving thing to do. God makes Himself known so we may enjoy Him to the greatest possible extent. God wants us to know He is worthy of our trust. He is able to save us. If we want a big strong Savior, God says, trust Me because I am bigger than you think.

True Worship

Those who trust in Christ are satisfied. Jesus is bread and water of life. They are like Jesus, who says that their food is doing the will of God (John 4:34). They hunger and thirst for Christ’s righteousness, and their soul is filled. Those who put their faith in the world will eat, but never be filled. They will drink, but will always be thirsty. When we have Christ, we shout joyfully and have a glad heart, no matter our circumstance. Take away our food, home, health, and we ought to find contentment and satisfaction because our satisfaction is in Christ. Those without faith, always have a heavy heart and a broken spirit. They will never be content. They grumble and complain. They are unhappy. Their name is a curse before God and their future is condemnation and wrath.

Hephzibah and Beulah

The beauty of this passage is found in God’s promises. If anyone else made these promises, we would scoff. Who can possibly fulfill these promises? Only God. Nothing can stand in His way. He is all-wise, all-powerful, and full of zeal to bring about His purpose and plan. “Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the wedding feast.” (Matthew 22:9)

Salvation’s Triumph

The main idea in verses 4-11 of chapter 61 is that we are to produce the fruit of righteousness, praising God for His salvation in Christ. The work of Christ is to transform and restore God’s creation. He is sent to bring righteousness and praise among God’s elect. Jesus is sent to us. He intervenes in our life and establishes us as oaks of righteousness. We are to produce the fruit of righteousness as a result of Jesus being sent.

Anointed Messiah

Perhaps, they see Jesus as being pompous. They see Jesus as Joseph’s son, not as the Messiah. We know just the opposite is true. Jesus is not a pompous man, but a humble God. He lays aside His privileges and divine glory, humbles Himself and becomes a man, He serves, and He obeys God to the point of death on a cross. Jesus takes on the mission, so we may be set free, comforted, and made righteous. We have a glorious Savior. Believe Jesus is the anointed Messiah sent to make us righteous, for the glory of God.

City of the Lord

The work of the Messiah is transforming. Isaiah prophecies that God will transform deserts into lush gardens. Animals have a new nature so that the lion lays down with the lamb. And, God will transform people so that they are no longer rebellious, but righteous and holy. Isaiah 60, and Revelation 21 are passages prophesying that God will transform Jerusalem into a glorious city. She will be a sparkling gem upon the earth.

Wrapped in Zeal

Before we finish, take a moment to notice the work of God throughout this chapter. God delivers the verdict of guilt. God expresses His displeasure with the situation. God sends His Right Arm because there is no other choice. God declares the victory over evil and wickedness. The same Right Arm of God defeats evil and is our precious Redeemer. God makes a covenant with those who Christ redeems. We bring nothing to our salvation except our confession of sin and our willingness to turn from our ways and follow God’s ways. We put our faith in Christ, the Right Arm of God, and He does the rest.

Beware of Religiosity

Real religion that pleases God is not easy. It requires that we die to our self. It requires humility. It requires sacrifice. Cruising along is not enough. Accumulating knowledge is not enough. We can do better. We are called to lay down our lives for the sake of the gospel and the glory of God. Believe God when He says that dying to self brings abundant life. Trust God when He says, it is better to give than to receive. Believe the words of Scripture that we can count everything as rubbish because we gain Christ. Let’s grow in maturity. Let’s excel at true Christianity for the glory of God and our eternal joy.
