This Week – Dr. John MacArthur of Panorama City, California discusses the most common phase used both in Christian and secular circles to use to describe the spirit of Christmas.  To some, Christmas is about spending money, to others, it’s the sending of cards and greetings, to still others it’s imbibing in what people would call the “spirits of Christmas”, alcoholic beverages. John says the one word that should describe the spirit of Christmas is this: worship!  He’s right, that’s what we look at all this week in the second message of “Simple Gospel”.

Monday – We introduce some truth about Christmas that you rarely hear ministers talk about. For instance, Christmas can intensify the feelings of grief, guilt, resentment, and even bitterness.  Some families have the experience of the Christmas season being a time that people actually dread! Why? Because of negative experiences that have happened in the past, for one thing.  We introduce the text from Luke 1:39-56 where Mary visits the home of her cousin Elizabeth.  The passage may actually surprise you!

Tuesday – We discuss the power of “hearing”.  Hearing both good and bad news can have physiological effects on our mind and bodies.  When Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, Luke says that the baby Elizabeth was carrying (John the Baptist) “leaped” in her womb.  Hearing has power spiritually.  Is it any wonder that the Apostle Paul would say, “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God!”

Wednesday – I have been impacted spiritually by something that I “heard” in a message.  So have you!  People make life changing decisions based on something that they have heard.  People repent of sin in their lives because of something that they heard.  People realign priorities in their lives because of something that they hear!  What has changed in your life because of something that you heard from the word of God?

Thursday – Mary talks about how God humbles the proud, even rulers on earth!  He “scatters the thoughts of the proud”.  Proud people are never wrong, in their minds.  Proud people always  think of themselves as wise, and yet God scatters the thoughts of the proud.  Meaning their very thinking becomes “scattered”, reminding them of their need for humility and their need for the Lord.

Friday – We close with a story of a woman in her eighties who tells a dramatic story of her childhood.  At the age of seven, she was caught in a North Dakota blizzard.  She learned a valuable lesson about her earthly father and her Heavenly Father.  What she learned speaks to us about the God we worship at Christmas or at any time of the year.  Remember, the operative word for the spirit of Christmas is worship!  It always has been, and always will!

PLANS

Would it make any difference in your life if you truly thought God had a plan for your life?  What if you truly thought God actually has a plan for your marriage, your family, even your career?  He does!  We tell the true story of a woman named Cathy from Cincinnati who struggled with all of those questions.  Even in her lack of belief, she still had the desire for a relationship with a God who does have a plan, despite our belief or lack thereof.  Listen to her story; maybe it’s your story!

  6. I love listening to ‘certain-key’ ministers on Sirius as I drive through Dallas traffic on my way to the office and home again each day. The oddest thing is, I get as much or more Christian-life insight from of your 5-minute talks with me (you do talk to me) as I do from many who preach for 30-minutes. You have a God given way of succinctly stating just what I need to hear each morning. How do you do that? I’m going to add you to four others to whom I send support because I know and believe you are the ‘real deal’ and I so enjoy you.

  8. My husband heard your message on the power of the tongue..he asked me to listen..we have been struggling after some harsh words exchagned. We are in very different places….with our faith I believe and it is my daily prayer for God to bring us closer together….to fill our hearts with the holy spirit to be kinder to each other. This message, for me, was a great place to start….it has allowed me to begin the forgiveness process and I am greatful for your ministry. Thank you.
