Our Good News Across America outreach was a wonderful week. I want to thank all of those who were involved. We were able to reach many children and families in our community with the message of the gospel, some of whom have never really heard it before. Here are some reflections that I have had from last week:

Why are we as Americans so enamored with this royal baby who’s name we now know: George Alexander Louis? Is it because the idea of royalty itself is so foreign to us here in the US? Is it that we are romantically enamored with the destiny that surrounds this child? Is it because of we love the story and the history of this baby being called heir to the throne before he was even born? Perhaps all of these ideas are true to some extent. But when you think about it, the royal baby has very little to do with us. And do princes, kings and queens even have much political pull in the UK anymore? But what we can say is it seems that there hasn’t been this much pomp and media coverage around a birth of a baby in a long time, and if you haven’t heard about the royal baby until the reading of this post, then well, you’ve been living under a rock.
All of this reminds me of another royal birth. One that occurred 2000 years ago. This baby was destined for royalty as well, this baby had a specific purpose for coming into the world as well. But instead of being accompanied by BBC news reporters, and high brow crowds camping out just to get a glimpse, this baby was born in a barn, greeted by shepherds. However, the entourage wasn’t too shabby when angels where singing His praises. You of course, know what baby I’m talking about. Its the man who we will gather to worship this Sunday.
This is also man whom we will also study as we start our final series in Matthew: “Jesus: Who is He really?”
As I said, Jesus was destined for royalty. And as a King, He has been given ultimate power, all encompassing authority. We have come to know Him as God in the flesh. Matthew presents Him as King. A King who was rejected. A King who was opposed. A King – as Matthew will soon cover – who was crucified. But as we have been listening to Jesus at the end of Matthew, he has been giving us some of the descriptions about what it will be like when He comes the second time. This time not as a baby, but as King of the universe, and no one will contest His authority. Matthew in these final chapters is really zeroing in on who Jesus really is. He has been showing us that He is King, He has been teaching us what it means to follow Him and now at the end of the Olivet discourse of Matthew 25 we discover that this Jesus, this King, will be the one to judge the world. But that idea that Jesus will judge us has become increasingly unpopular. Jesus, for many, is nothing more than a good luck charm, or a man you go to if you have some kind of problem, or more accurately, some might see Him as a benevolent helper – but not Lord, not King, not one who will ultimately be my judge.
But that is how Matthew presents Him. So that we are going to seek to answer this Sunday is “Will Jesus judge me?” The answer of course is, “yes.” But that leads us to another question, “How can I be confident I will make it through His judgment and be saved in the end?” Jesus warns us that there will be quite a few who will think they will be saved, but they will be turned away. How, then, can we have confidence before Him at His judgement?
Join us this Sunday to see what Jesus has to say in Matthew 25 about this question.

“Jesus: Who is He?”
We may talk about Him a lot, but do we really know Him? Understanding who Jesus really is has a significant impact on your life now, and if what Jesus said is correct, your life after. Join us as we finish our series in Matthew exploring who Jesus is and seeking an answer to some of the following questions:
– Will Jesus ever judge me?
– Is Jesus only for good people?
– What if I thought I knew Jesus at one time, but now I’m not so sure?
– Why exactly did Jesus die…and what difference does that really make for me?
– Did Jesus really rise again…and what difference does that really make for me?
– What does following Jesus really mean? And am I one of His followers?

Here is a convicting Parenting thought:
As Parents, you and I are called to represent the very nature of God to our children!
Click here to read a great article on parenting from Paul Tripp.
Here are a couple of quotes, but be sure to read the whole article! Hang in there – we are in this parenting thing together!
“You don’t discipline your child because they’ve messed up your day and you have the right to meet out your anger against him. No, you discipline your child because you want that child to begin to embrace the depth of their sin, and therefore, the depth of their need, and therefore, hunger for the Lord Jesus Christ.”
“You’ll want to throw in the towel. It’s not easy to say no to a self-sovereign child. In many ways, the easiest life as a parent comes when you give your child whatever they want. It’s going to be very tempting to make your day easier by making your child happier by withdrawing your authority.”
