The God of Amazing

There’s a wonderful new worship song entitled ‘The God of Amazing” by Benji Cowart and Michael Farren.

The lyrics go like this:

You’re the God of Amazing  You’re the God of what cannot be explained  You’re the God who delights to be more  Than we’ve ever hoped for  There’s no end to the power of Your name  You’re the God of astounding   Far beyond our impossibilities

Our God is the The God of Amazing.  There’s nothing that shows who He is like His incarnation in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. During the month of December we are going to look at God through His coming into the world as found in Matthew’s Gospel. We will seek to look in depth at chapters 1 and 2 of Matthew.

Matthew’s Gospel is both human (from Matthew) and divine (through the Holy Spirit). Matthew shows us the promise which was fulfilled in Scripture. He again and again tells us how Jesus “filled full” the meaning and significance of the Old Testament.

We will see how The God of Amazing chose Mary and Joseph and constantly provided for the safety of the baby. We will explore how God made Himself known to Joseph and gave Him direction for life.

We will also see how this applies to us as well.

You and I worship the same God of Amazing as the One who spoke to Joseph in dreams and inspired the Wise Men.  We worship the One who provided for our redemption in Christ.

We will take the five Sundays in December to look at Matthew 1-2. This will include a very special Christmas Eve on Sunday December 24.

Our Christmas Eve services will take place at 9:30, 11:00, 1:30, and 3:00.  We are looking forward to having David Logan, our new Minister of Music, with us that Sunday.

May we all have a Christmas season that draws us closer to our Amazing God.

Verse of the Day

[The Birth of Jesus Foretold] In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” — Luke 1:26-28 (NIV)
