  • Weekly Devotion | Glenbrook Presbyterian Church
    for twelve days beginning on December 25 with the feast of the Nativity Christ s birth and ending on January 6 with the feast of the Epiphany which is the revelation that God the Son has become a human baby called Jesus In our modern era Christmas is more about shopping and giving with December 25 being the day of revealing what we got and January 6 the day we find out how much we owe Boxing Day used to be the day when lords and ladies and other wealthy people gave Christmas boxes to their servants employees tenant farmers and tradesmen One medieval custom that has fallen out of practice is the Boy Bishop The verses above are called the Magnificat because it begins with the phrase My soul doth magnify the Lord KJV and it is the song Mary sings when she finds out that she will give birth to the Holy One of Israel It is a mystery that she will spend a lifetime contemplating During the feast of St Nicholas December 6 the Magnificat is read and at verse 52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones the bishop will step down and at but has lifted up the humble a boy will ascend to his seat He will be the acting bishop or head of the cathedral for part of the Christmas season We too like Mary are God bearers in that our incarnate Lord and Saviour lives within us But we like the poor Galatians to whom Paul wrote in love and exasperation have a tendency to wander off course Paul said to the Galatians and to us as well My dear children for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you how I wish I could be with you now and change my tone because I am perplexed about you Gal 4 19 20 When I look back on my Christmases I often wished that I had dethroned all the noise and things in my heart so that the Christ child may be the sole possessor of me Our great hope is that not only did God come to us and for us He is also praying with the apostle Paul to form and reform Christ in us C Wong The One who Lived Up To His Name December 23 2015 in Weekly Devotion by Webmaster This is the time of year when much of the world pauses in recognition of the Birth of Jesus Christ It is a time in which peace and goodwill are talked about and there is an emphasis on giving and generosity to others These are good things to do and to be But is this the primary reason why Christians celebrate Christmas To Joseph the angel of the Lord said She will bear a son and you shall call his name Jesus for he will save his people from their sins Matthew 1 21 And to the Shepherds the angel of the Lord said For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour who is Christ the Lord Luke 2 11 Though we were created in the image God through the disobedience of Adam and Eve sin entered into our human condition resulting in separation and death The apostle Paul recognized the struggle that we all have with our sinful human nature when he examined his own life and wrote I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members Wretched man that I am Who will rescue me from this body of death Romans 7 23 The sins that we commit are symptomatic of our human nature captive to sin Who will rescue us Who will save us Who will forgive us We live in a world that is characterized in many places by corruption greed and violence so it is easy to point the finger and blame things on the state of the world But maybe the problem is that the world is also made up of people like ourselves Unless we understand that Jesus came into the world to save us from our sin Christmas will not be much more than a sentimental occasion or a consumer driven holiday To understand his birth we need to celebrate his coming to earth in Bethlehem but we also need to travel the short distance to Jerusalem It is there that on the cross God dealt with our sin once and for all It is there that Jesus lived up to his name The greatest need of every human heart is to be saved Christmas is about a baby born in Bethlehem sent into this world by a loving God to become the tender lamb of God who would die in our place Christians celebrated the birth of our Saviour because as the angel of the Lord said to Joseph He will save his people from their sins and they know they are the sinners He came to save submitted by Pastor Ian Wait For The Lord December 15 2015 in Weekly Devotion by Webmaster Wait for the Lord be strong and let your heart take courage Psalm 27 14 I must admit that waiting is something that I don t like doing and maybe that is because I have been subtly programmed to live in an instant world were communication technology even our food has become high speed instant and express The culture in which we live in basically sends us the message if you are not doing something or going someplace or just sitting there then we are wasting our time In our personal lives waiting is not a very popular pastime Waiting is not something that we anticipate or experience with great joy and gladness In fact I would dare to suggest that most of us consider waiting a wast of time Henri Nouwen once wrote For us and for many people waiting is a dry desert between where we are and where we want to be We do not enjoy such a place We want to move out of it and do something worthwhile Yet it is in the desert of waiting in which the promise is revealed and maybe this is the message of the advent season leading up to Christmas Wait for the Lord and for those who do there is a strength and courage found in the the midst of the desert John the Baptist waited by the Jordan River as he called Israel out into the wilderness to repent and to prepare the way of the Lord Mary waited for nine months for the Angel Gabriel s promise to be fulfilled Joseph waited in trust believing that what was conceived in Mary was from the Holy Spirit Simeon and Anna waited a lifetime to eventually hold the promised Messiah who had been promised over 400 years before through the prophet Isaiah Sometimes the best thing we can do is simply to wait to be still before the Lord believing that God in time will reveal himself to us Maybe this is you today Maybe in your waiting God is wanting to reveal something that you need to hear from God through his Word Maybe in your waiting God is building in you a patient and persevering heart Maybe in your waiting God is asking you to trust God with your life and maybe in your waiting you will find that this waiting is the most worthwhile thing you can do Prayer Dear Lord help me to be patient as I await your arrival Submitted by Pastor Ian The Stand December 8 2015 in Weekly Devotion by Webmaster Matthew 2 12 16 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod the Magi returned to their own country by another route When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi he was furious and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi NIV My new Alpine goat Agnes is a milking goat which has been a very interesting experience for me Sophie my two year old retriever also found Agnes very interesting in an amusing way at least for a time Sophie loved nothing better than to try and get Aggie s goat by rushing at her or creeping up behind her and touching her cold nose to Agnes s udder Sophie s antics caused Agnes much distress until the day that she finally chose to take a stand As Sophie rushed in Aggie stood her ground lowered her head then rose up on her hind legs to meet the onslaught Sophie realized immediately that the game was over Now whenever Agnes is on her way from the corral to the milking shed and Sophie comes near Aggie whirls around and stands her ground until Sophie backs away Agnes needed to make a choice to stand or to continue to back down amidst Sophie s threat I believe that as Christmas approaches God s people also need to take a stand a stand for Jesus Needing to take a stand for Christ isn t something new however It began almost at the moment of His birth The shepherds upon finding Mary and Joseph and the Baby Who was lying in the manger took a stand by glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen Luke 2 20b NIV The Magi took a stand for Christ when they chose to follow the warning that they had received in a dream not to return to Herod but to go home by a different route Herod also took a stand regarding Christ but his stand unlike that of the shepherds and the Magi was a stand of defiance and hatred against the newborn King Today people still take a stand for Christ for or against There is no in between something that has become clearer and clearer over the past several years as we have seen the growing trend to change Christmas from its true meaning to a generic holiday Most schools businesses greeting card companies and the like now celebrate the holidays not Christmas so as not to offend anyone And yet Jesus has always offended people Why Because His very Being challenges us to make a choice to believe that He is Who He said He is or not the very Son of God Emmanuel Who takes away the sin of the world for all who choose to believe and trust in His name This Christmas which stand will you take to stand up for the Christ we celebrate or to back down to the opposition Prayer Father God in heaven thank You so much for sending Jesus to earth that first Christmas day Thank You that You took a stand of love for us amidst our sin that we might take a stand for Christ Who is our salvation and life Bless us with both the courage and the grace to stand firm in our beliefs and the true meaning of the celebration of Christmas for indeed Jesus is the reason for the season In His wonderful name we pray Amen Submitted by Lynne P Atlin British Columbia Canada click prescan ca for more devotionals from Presbyterian Church in Canada Stepping Out In Faith December 1 2015 in Weekly Devotion by Webmaster What is this thing called faith Is this something that we are born with If not do we acquire it in some mysterious way Once we have it can we lose it These are often some of the questions that people ask within Christianity and to some extent there is a parallel in the secular world We are currently in the midst of a Federal election campaign and we are asked to listen to our potential representatives who will govern us We weigh the facts pros and cons and perhaps take a leap of faith when casting our vote Along with this act of voting there is always an element of doubt in the outcome and when things don t work out in the result you hope for there is always another opportunity in four years What about the more personal and more immediate consequence of acts of faith As I recall there is a small glass floor high up in the observation gallery of the CN tower in Toronto If you step out onto the glass you can have a wonderful view of the city under your feet or so I m told The guidebook may say this floor has been designed to withstand more than 1000 kg weight I weigh about 70 kg These are the facts Do I step out in confidence and experience this wonderful view Well I m not so sure I have read the facts but maybe still have a few doubts Along comes a lineman from the Toronto Argonauts a big big guy relative to me and he walks out onto the glass floor What a great view he says and off he goes Our doubts about the facts of the floor will diminish greatly because we have seen what it can do However we still have to step onto the glass floor to experience the view Let us return now to a Christian understanding of faith and Pastor Ian s reflection on faith at a recent Bible Study We have the guidebook in the Holy Bible The facts are all there to be read and with assistance to be understood Scripture tells us in Ephesians 2 8 9 For it is by grace you have been saved through faith and this not from yourselves it is the gift of God not by works so that no one can boast There is nothing we can do to earn God s favour or gain access to heaven apart from His grace We can learn and understand that we are saved by faith alone and not by works But how do we acquire this gift of faith Putting it simply from the New Testament we learn that at Calvary Jesus took on the sin of mankind gave His life that we might be saved and in three days was resurrected from death His act of pure faith in God the Father made it possible that we can be saved Did Jesus in His humanity have any doubts at Calvary Perhaps in the Garden of Gethsemane when He prayed My Father if it is possible may this cup be taken from me Yet not as I will but as you will Matthew 26 39 has a suggestion of doubt As He gave up His life Jesus said the famous words Father into your hands I commit my Spirit Luke 23 46 Isn t this a statement of absolute faith When we believe in God Father Son and Holy Spirit we are given a measure of faith by the Holy Spirit that allows us to link into that faith that Jesus demonstrated at Calvary This is saving faith It is not something we can do on our own but only because of Jesus our Lord Then we can step out and enjoy the view Submitted by George R Richness of Having vs Richness of Being November 17 2015 in Weekly Devotion by Webmaster This Devotion can be found on John Ortberg s blog page http www johnortberg com richness of having vs richness of being Join us for a study on John Ortberg s book Soul Keeping Friday evenings contact the church to register Published February 28th 2014 When I think of being rich and having riches I think of two men One of the men was part of a ministry for twentysomethings that my wife used to lead at Willow Creek Community Church It is not a group that thinks much about death When you are that age you think you are going to live forever Then Larry Clarke died When he was in his thirties he quit his job so that he could serve full time at the church for no pay He never married never owned a home never went on an expensive vacation He just befriended people He saw potential He invited people into groups into opportunities to make friends and contribute He saw potential in discouraged people He had radar for lonely people He told people what he thought they could become His loss was devastating to that group of leaders but even they had no idea of his impact A wake was held for Larry in the chapel of the church that week No one was sure how many people would come after all Larry never married and had no children and no regular job Cars came flooding in The wake lasted three hours So many people came to file past the casket that the line went out the chapel door for blocks eight hundred people stood in line for three hours to honor him The next day was the funeral service The chapel at Willow Creek can hold around five hundred people when jammed full Over the decade or so that we served there many funerals were held in the chapel several of them for people of significant stature and achievement Only one drew so many people that it overflowed the chapel and had to be moved to the main auditorium Larry Clarke s At the service and the wake at the reception and in the halls one person after another spoke of how his or her life had been touched by Larry None of the stories were about Larry s possessions or achievements All of them were about Larry s capacity to love We used to wonder how Larry could afford to
