One of the best ways to serve others is pray for them. When we talk to God about others, we lay before him their greatest needs. And, as Paul teaches us, that's not for a job promotion or healthy diagnosis, but for abounding love, discernment, and hope for Jesus' return.

The Christian life is not a solo performance. God links his people together in grateful, loving relationships to help us work for his good. He calls us to be team players, which is not only counter cultural, but also difficult when you feel like you let the team down (or it lets you down). Nevertheless, the call to link arms remains.

Trust Big is the theme for 2018. It sees faith as more than a matter of intellectual assent. It is a relationship with God, where asking and expecting, abiding and rejoicing mark a healthy dynamic. Hear how to make this theme a reality in every day life for 2018.

Satan was the most original Grinch. He is hellbent on stealing joy and destroying all God holds dear. One of his age-old tactics is to accuse God's people. But Jesus' birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension sent Satan sputtering. God's people have an Advocate, and need not heed Satan's accusations any further.

History knew him as Herod the Great, but really, he was Herod the Grinch. When he caught wind of a new king in town, his paranoia soared. So it happens with powerful people. So it happens to us, when our power is threatened. Herod the Grinch tried to kill the baby Jesus, but God would not allow Herod the Grinch to stop Christmas from coming. It came.

Joseph had an opportunity to stop Christmas from coming. He could have asked for Mary to be stoned. It would have been within his rights, considering she was with child and it was not his. But Joseph resolved for a more merciful decision, putting his role above his reputation. In a shame-sensitive society, his choice was wonderful.

God welcomes us back to Him when we drift. He is our refuge, our hiding place, our home. People in Hosea's day needed this reminder as they faced exile (by Assyria). They had lost their bearings. Their relationship with God had thinned. But He welcomed them back. He always welcomes a come back.

Passage: Hosea 5:1-14
Duration: 42 mins 44 secs
We put too much weight on our politicians (and they too much on themselves). They are not men and women in positions of influence; they are not messiahs. Sadly, we can put more trust in them to solve our problems than God, who sets people in their seats of power. Hosea calls his people to look past politics to find spiritual solutions to spiritual problems.

Passage: Hosea 4:1-19
Duration: 45 mins 50 secs
Americans like comfort. Yeah, verily, we love it. Our culture seduces us into a life of ease and soft beds. Sadly, this can rob from our intimacy with God. Hosea speaks out against godless character, and no good conduct in Israel. At the root is a great love for idols (and comfort) than God.

Family life brings tremendous joy and terrible pain. As dysfunctional as family relationships may be, family members are difficult to disown. God knows something of family problems in his relationship with Israel. Hosea knows something of family problems with his wife and children. We know something of family problems, too. Fortunately, bitter family problems get better with God... someday.
