Quiet Strength

Matthew 1: 18-25 • December 9, 2018 • Rev. Dr. Gerrit Dawson

Again and again, Joseph had to cling to the angel words, “Joseph, do not be afraid. Do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For this child is of God.” Again and again, Joseph had to recall the stories of his namesake in the Scriptures. God lets suffering come to us. But he has a greater plan. If we persist in faith and faithfulness, we can say with both Josephs: You did not send me here. God did. God sent me ahead of you to save life. "Quiet Strength" Gerrit Dawson Matthew 1: 18-25

A Trip to the Rag and Bone Shop

Matthew 1: 1-11 • December 2, 2018 • Rev. Dr. Gerrit Dawson

How do we understand the filthy straw of the manger wherein the Savior of the human race laid his sweet head? Advent is a time of remembering the past in order that it becomes a part of the one expectation and hope. Matthew takes us through the "rag and bone shop" of the genealogy of Jesus Christ. There's a Savior coming. He even stops at the foul rag and bone shop of our hearts. The eternal Son of God has stepped into the outrage of our descent. Gerrit Dawson Matthew 1: 1-11 Gerrit Dawson
