Focus On God-Promised One

December 7th, 2017

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines Jesus as the Promised One.

According to Acts 13:22, the Apostle Paul spoke of David as a man after God’s own heart. David reigned as king over Israel in one of their best moments in history, when they were established in the land under a king who trusted God.

Then, in the sermon, Paul pointed to a descendant who was even greater than David. “From this man’s descendants God has brought to Israel the Savior Jesus, as he promised.”

David was a king, but Jesus was the promised Messiah, the One foretold in the ancient Scriptures. He was the One people were anticipating.

Just as Jesus came to the world as the fulfillment of God’s promise, He will fulfill the promise of forgiveness and eternal life to all who call on His name for salvation.

Knowing Jesus as the Promised One is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.

    I totally agree that Jesus is the one that we celebrate during this season. I’m noticing, however, there seems to be a lot more secular type music being played this year for Christmas. I listen all the time to WJTL because I love the spiritual nature of the songs that are played. Most are worshipful and honor God and Jesus his son. There are plenty of stations and stores that are playing all the secular music anyone would ever want to hear… And in my opinion, way too much secular Christmas. Please, add more Christ centered music to your Christmas lineup and much less secular. And thank you for celebrating Jesus!
