Speaker: John Moon - Psalm 130 was uniquely used in the life of John Wesley. He was a pastor, a minister, who was yet unconverted! It is well known that he was struck forcibly by reading of the introduction to the book of Romans written by Martin Luther that declared salvation by faith alone-It is less known that in the St. Paul's Cathedral that same afternoon he had heard and been deeply moved by, Psalm 130. The refrain of the choir in the cathedral "If God should mark and equities who could stand" reverberated it in his heart and he realized that he could not stand before God except that he stood guilty. It is important to understand how offensive sin is to a holy God, but how do we keep the awareness of our sinful state from sending us into spiritual despondency? May Psalm 130 encourage us to follow the Psalmist's example by crying out to Jesus and asking him for mercy when we find ourselves in the depths of sins despair. It is only by turning away from ourselves and trusting in Christ's sacrifice on our behalf that we will find a cure for our iniquity. In this advent season, Christ is the only hope that will not fail.

Speaker: John Moon - This passage directly follows Jesus’ arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane, Judas had betrayed him to the Roman and Jewish authorities and Jesus had willingly allowed himself to be captured. Now Jesus is being taken to the first of several trials before Jewish and Roman courts. In John 18:12-27 there is an interplay of two dramas that brings into focus opposite truths that are foundational to all of Christian Doctrine: the glory of Christ and the sinfulness of man. Those truths are evident from the contrast between Christ’s faithfulness and Peter’s faithlessness; His courage and Peter’s cowardice; His sacrificial love and Peter’s self-preserving lies. The narrative goes back and forth between Jesus’s trial by the High Priest Emeritus Annus, and Peter’s series of denials. In effect, you see both Peter and Jesus encountering different interrogations with very different responses. May God help us to rely on his grace as we encounter his Word.

Speaker: John Moon - John’s narrative suddenly shifts from the fragrant banquet room in Bethany to a bustling street leading into Jerusalem, where thronging worshipers have come in anticipation of the Passover feast. As with other feasts, worshipers wondered if Jesus would attend and eagerly watched for his arrival. Upon His arrival, they lined His path to the city with palm branches and clothes, shouting “Hosanna!” which means, “Save us.” Their shouts included words form a messianic psalm (Psalm 118). Jesus had entered the city of Jerusalem many times during His ministry, but this “triumphal entry” to the capital city of the Hebrew nation differed in one primary respect. He no longer visited as a worshiper; this day He claimed it as King. Unlike a conquering warrior king, however, Jesus entered the city on a symbol of peace, a lowly donkey. The nature of this king far different they expected and offered a salvation that was deeper than they knew. May God help us to see Jesus as the one true king!

Speaker: John Moon - Today as we finish 2017 we will look at the closing of Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi. This letter is a very encouraging little letter to this church that he loves very much. The church in Philippi was the first church that Paul planted in Europe. You can read the story of how that happened in Acts 16. It’s just an unbelievable story. If you read through the letter, it’s very obvious that Paul has great affection for these believers in Philippi. Most of the letters in the New Testament are full of correction and reproof. This one is not. Overall, this is a very positive letter. In fact, it’s arguably the most positive letter that Paul wrote in terms of what he wanted to say to the church. So his purpose in writing this letter is to encourage them. He’s in jail when he wrote it, so he wanted to encourage them. But then he also wanted to give them some instruction and thank them for a gift of support that they had sent him while he was in prison. Paul is going to deliver one of the most treasured promises in scripture with a masterful stroke. “My God will supply every need of your according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” May God give us future grace to rest in his supply to his Glory as we look into the New Year.

Speaker: John Moon - There are many wonderful verses in the Bible about God’s love, but few come close to describing His great love as succinctly and powerfully as John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” Jesus has just finished explaining to the Jewish religious leader, Nicodemus, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. Jesus Christ came into the world to save people. On the heels of Jesus’ discussion with the Nicodemus, John helps us to see what makes it possible for someone to have eternal life. May the Lord help us to see the love of God that moves toward us even when our greatest sinfulness is exposed in the Light of Christ.
