A Time for Strong Resolve

Selected Scriptures

Airs: December 18 - December 22

Courage is just another word for inner strength. Courage is the determination to hang in there, to persevere, endure hardship, fear, and all manner of difficulty. The fact is, it’s impossible to live victoriously for Jesus Christ without courage. We cannot honour God in a godless culture without courage. The real test of courage isn’t so much for those fighting on the battlefield…or for witnessing in the midst of opposition…or even for facing down a burglar in our homes. Real courage demands a strong resolve that goes much deeper than all of that…and is much more demanding. Be assured that in some way, your resolve will be tested today and every day. Your test of courage may not be as exciting as a beachhead landing or sailing around Cape Horn or making a spacewalk. Instead, it may be as simple as saying no to an improper invitation. It may be as uneventful as facing a pile of laundry with a positive attitude. It may be a private or unknown struggle within you between right and wrong. Remember, God’s Medal of Honour winners are made in secret, because our most courageous acts occur down deep inside…away from the view of the general public. That takes courage. It takes a strong resolve.

  • December 23 - December 25 Probing Deeper Into the Incarnation

    Thinking deeply at Christmas can be difficult. Why? Shopping for presents, family get-togethers, and holiday parties sometimes crowd out the real meaning behind the trees and tinsel.

    Probing Deeper into the Incarnation will remind you that before Mary placed baby Jesus in the manger, He existed in heaven with God the Father and God the Spirit. The Son of God became a man and gave up His own life out of His love for you—and to make it possible for you to love Him in return.

  • December 26 - December 30 God's Hands on Human Clay

    As we anticipate the days, months, and years to come, we have to admit we remain clueless what will happen on any given day.

  • December 31 - January 2 The Significance of Songs

    The Bible is chock full of songs. Songs of celebration and sorrow. Songs of magnificent victory and quiet reflection. Songs of thanksgiving, of praise, of dedication, as well as songs of disappointment and grief. Down through the centuries of the illustrious history of the Hebrews, songs were used to unify and rally those whose hearts overflowed with joy. The songs didn’t cease when Messiah came—in fact, they intensified! From His birth until His final hours, songs rang out. Just before Jesus and His disciples left the Upper Room, they sang a hymn (Matthew 26:30).

  • January 5 - January 7 A Song of Single-Mindedness

    Among all the books of antiquity, none has touched the human heart more profoundly than the Psalms. The title in the Hebrew Bible is Tehillim, which means “praises.” This title clearly reflects the prevailing theme of 150 inspired songs. With intense passion, the psalmists composed lyrics that reflect the full spectrum of emotions…from the soaring heights of ecstasy to the dregs of despair and grief. From the joys of forgiveness, gratitude, celebration, and triumph to the opposite extremes of shame, fear, disappointment, and defeat.

  • January 8 - January 12 A Song for Times of Crisis

    Ever felt the ground move under your feet? Know what it’s like to pitch from side to side in a small boat on strong seas? While some people could answer Yes! to both questions, most of us only imagine such experiences.

    Still, sooner or later we all face trials that take on cataclysmic proportions. Left unchecked, fear runs its course and has a way of bringing us to a point of helplessness. If you’ve felt the pinch of life’s uncertainty or if you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place, then Psalm 46 is for you.
