In John 10:10 Jesus promised to give abundant life to those who believe in Him. Sadly, many trust Jesus as Savior but go right back to their familiar way of living. This message is a reminder that the Christian life is more than mere existence. We are called to live in such a way that the world will be drawn to Jesus, who is the source of our life.

Rev. Jason M. Kaspar, pastor at Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church in La Grange, TX, joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Ezekiel 47:1-23. Ezekiel sees a river flow from the new temple. Although no tributaries join this river, it grows from a trickle into the mightiest of rivers. Because it flows from the presence of God, this river provides life all around. The saltiness of the Dead Sea is made fresh. Multitudes of fish find a home there. All kinds of trees bear all kinds of fruit for food, and their leaves give healing. The vision Ezekiel sees is fulfilled in Jesus, who is the true temple of God who gives water of eternal life in Holy Baptism. St. John sees the fullness of this vision at the end of Revelation. Ezekiel also sees the boundaries of the Promised Land. The LORD will make His people dwell securely here, and He also provides inclusion for sojourners to be made a part of His people. This is a picture of the LORD's desire to bring salvation through Jesus Christ to all nations. “The Faithful Watchman” is a mini-series on Sharper Iron that goes through the book of Ezekiel. Just when Ezekiel should have begun his service as priest in the temple in Jerusalem, the LORD called him to be a prophet in exile in Babylon. Through fantastic visions and attention-grabbing action prophecies, the prophet Ezekiel is a faithful watchman who proclaims the word of the LORD to bring people to repentance over their sins and to faith in the coming Savior, Jesus Christ, the glory of the LORD made flesh.

Scripture For Today:2 Chronicles 6:21“Hear the supplications of your servant and of your people Israel when they pray toward this place. Hear from heaven, your dwelling place; and when you hear, forgive.”Giving Thanks pt 5We are in the season of “Thanksgiving” here in the United States, and these last few days we have been looking at the story of the 10 lepers to learn about “Thanksgiving.” We have focused on our story of the 10 lepers and the one that returned – only one, that returned to give Jesus thanks for healing him of this dreaded disease.  Yesterday, I left you with the “cliff hanger” of three distinct words used in Luke 17:11-19 by Jesus that, in English, all say the same thing. But when taken in context to Hebrew that the lepers and disciples heard, convey an entirely different, deeper meaning than our English translation. One healed leper came back. One caught himself in the midst of the celebration, and returned to Jesus. He reversed his steps, put his family on hold, put the priest on hold, and came back to the cause of his celebration. His response and life situation were unique, but in the simplest sense of what he did his thankfulness led to action. And boy, did that turn out to be important! "Where are the other nine?" Jesus asked. Do you realize what this says? Jesus said, "Go, and show yourselves to the priests.” Jesus never commanded that any of them express thankfulness to God, or return to him, the healer. Nevertheless, that is what Jesus expected. Look at the Scripture again, and walk with me through this. We're going to look at three different words that are all trying to say the same thing. They're all saying that this leper-used-to-be is well. Look first at verse 15. "One of them, when he saw he was healed . . ." and stop there. This Greek word is "hi-a-tha," which is a purely medical term. It means to mend, to repair. It's like a broken bone finally mending. This guy was all patched up. Look at verse 17. Jesus asked, "Were not all ten cleansed? Stop there. This is a different word than hi-a-tha. This is "kath-a-ri-dzo," the root word for our "catheter." It, too, is a medical word in part, for it means, "remove the impurities." When a doctor inserts a heart "cath", angioplasty might remove a blockage of an artery. It will cause healing. Naturally, the Jewish connotations of this word are important, too. To be "cleansed" was exactly what the priest would be looking for, and would declare. It carried some religious overtones, too. And now, look at one more word. In verse 19, Jesus says to this very thankful man, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well." "Made you well . . ." that's a different word. It's not a medical word, necessarily, although it was used to describe the safe delivery of a baby. This is the word, "so-so," which means, "saved." The Greeks used it for people who escaped dangerous situations. Sailors surviving a storm at sea had been saved, they said. "So-dzo." When Matthew began his gospel, he started with the Christmas story. The angel told Joseph to name the Christ child "Jesus," because that name meant that he would "save people from their sins." He would "so-dzo" the people. When Paul described what would happen to a person who publicly professed Jesus as Lord and savior, he used this same word. ". . . If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (so-dzo). For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved (so-dzo!) (Romans 10:9-10). And Jesus says to this very thankful man willing to follow God before his circumstances changed - to worship God before he returned home - Jesus pronounces a complete healing, a wellness that passes all other wellness terms. This man, Jesus said, understands. Do you understand? I want to understand more and more about our wonderful Savior. Remember that a priest must...

Dr. Mark Shaw interviews Josh Brunk, Executive Director of Village Mercy Ministries, which is a residential men's program located in South Africa. Village Mercy (https://villagemercy.co.za/) is listed on The Addiction Connection as a resource for those looking for biblical residential addictions programs. About Village Mercy “Helping People Enslaved To Addictions Find Freedom Through Jesus Christ” Village Mercy is a not-for-profit, intensive Biblical-Counselling based discipleship residential program for men that uses a Bible-centered approach to counsel people who are trapped in addictions to find freedom through the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Located in a South Africa, where “this problem (of addictions) has been identified by the National Drug Master Plan, as a fuel for crime, poverty, reduced productivity, unemployment, dysfunctional family life, political instability, the escalation of chronic diseases, such as AIDS and TB, injury and premature death,” Village Mercy stands as a beacon of hope for liberation to all men caught in the grip of this cruel tyrant and their families. How to Get Involved: PRAY Prayer is central to the ministries of Village Mercy because the challenges we deal with are fundamentally spiritual in nature. Please pray for us. Pray for godliness, wisdom, care, patience, love, faithfulness, endurance, positive attitudes and joy amongst the leadership. Pray that those who are ministering may continue being conformed into the image of their Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. Please pray that we may aim for faithfulness to God's call rather than success. Pray that those who come to Village Mercy for help might come to a saving knowledge of God through our interaction with them. Pray for more healthy biblical churches throughout South Africa that the men who graduate can go back to. And pray for God's leading in this ministry. GIVE Donate to The Addiction Connection and leave a comment or memo designated to "South Africa". Another way you can help us is by Donating Supplies, Providing Groceries & Giving Financially for the various needs of the house. Sign up for our newsletter and contact us for ways to get involved in our ministry and to find out more details about how to support us. HIRE US Hire the residents of VMM to do paid manual/physical labour for you. Part of what we emphasize in the program is the necessity to work, the guys in the program are involved in a lot of supervised manual labour (yard work, cleaning, mowing, cleaning pools and providing man power for a lot of handiwork jobs) during the week to help pay for the expenses of the program and equip themselves in return with job skills. REFERRALS Mention Village Mercy to those who may be struggling with addictions, or those who may be in need of training in the area of this ministry.

More Than a Song - Discovering the Truth of Scripture Hidden in Today's Popular Christian Music

Is there room for rejoicing in the midst of fear? Charles Spurgeon writes, "Fear, without joy, is torment; and joy, without holy fear, would be presumption."

The Advent season allows us to focus on the joyful and miraculous first coming of Jesus, God's Son and our Savior. This Advent season our theme is Immanuel, which means God With Us. For this first sermon of the series we will explore, “God with us in our hopes and fears.” Whether we're besieged by an overwhelming enemy, peacefully rocking our newborn baby, or any circumstance in between, God has promised to be with us; and God is faithful to keep his promise.Discussion Questions:What is an example of an event in the Bible or the life of another believer from history that you can see they trusted in God's promise to be with them? When was a time that you were greatly comforted by the promise or experience of God with us? What is the difference between believing God's promise with one's mind and living out life in that promise? What makes it difficult for you to trust God's promise to be with us?What do you tend to trust in rather than trusting in God and his presence/provision? What are some areas of your life that you need to live the experience of God with us? What are some ways that you may be able to help others to believe and live out the promise of God with us? What are some application points that this promise has for our church as a corporate body? Prayer Points:Pray for the joy of Christ to flood our hearts this Advent Season! Ask God to impress upon each of us the depth and power of his promise to be with us. Pray for those who feel far from God or especially lonely. Pray that they will feel drawn to God through Jesus and will have their souls ministered to in a supernatural way. Pray that we will not only believe God's Immanuel promise, but that we will trust it and live by it! Ask God to show us the glory of Christ's coming to be our Savior and motivate us to join him in proclaiming Christ so that all may hear, believe, and be saved.

In both of them I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, 2 that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, 3 knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. 4 They will say, ·Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.· 5 For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, 6 and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. 7 But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

In the beatitudes, Jesus shows us that happiness is not getting what we want, but being content with what we have. Happiness is not found in self-sufficiency, but in full dependence on God. Each beatitude builds on our need for God, for the very first beatitude lays the foundation for our relationship with our Savior. And as we move up the superstructure of the beatitudes, they together lead us to the deepest and richest happiness we can imagine.
