BUCHANAN/Democracy vs. autocracy

So said President Franklin D. Roosevelt of Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza, and how very American. For, from its first days, America has colluded with autocrats when the national interest demanded it. 

GETTING THE MESSAGE/Crisis can help awaken Christians

David is in a crisis. He established earlier in the psalm that God delivered him from the pit of destruction and set his feet on solid ground. The Lord put a new song in his mouth, a song of praise for the salvation of his body and soul. It is this deliverance that teaches David how to respond to a crisis or tribulation.

DUNCAN/The citizens of the kingdom, Part I

Please turn in your Bible to Matthew 5:1-5. As we continue our study in the Gospel of Matthew, we now come to the Sermon on the Mount where our Lord gives us a picture of the life of those who are members of His kingdom

Wait patiently for the Lord

This psalm begins with remembrance and thanksgiving for a past act of deliverance David experienced from the Lord.

Antioch is a city that should be etched in the minds and hearts of Christians. It was a major city in northern Syria. Here the first majority Gentile church was planted, and Antioch became the springboard for missions throughout the Roman Empire. And it was here believers were first called Christians (Acts 11:26). Luke tells us how the church there got started.

Please turn in your Bible to Matthew 4:12-17. Thus far in the Gospel of Matthew, we have read about the genealogy of our Savior and his identification as the Messiah whom God had promised to send to His people.

BUCHANAN/Headed for a failed state?

The U.S. embassy was urging all Americans to “leave Afghanistan as soon as possible.” Message: Get out while you can.

GETTING THE MESSAGE/The work of the Holy Spirit

Word of what happened with Peter and Cornelius at Caesarea (Acts 10) spread to the Christians in Judea. Peter returned to Jerusalem to give a first-hand report. Peter was Jewish, as was the church in Jerusalem, so he knew an explanation would be necessary. Gentiles were outside the covenants of promise (Ephesians 2) and were unclean. 

DUNCAN/Matthew: Jesus’ temptation and response
